Thanks for the nice words about the picture of dad and my son. Someone asked what dads name is: that is sorta funny subject with us. His first name is Honree. No middle name either. My grandmother's maiden name was Hassell.
There have been times when I am described as hard to get along with, I just tell em, I come by it honest, my grandmother was a hassle and my father is ornery!

Got a shuckle out of this one..:-)

Names can also mislead you, or be deceitful in some cases.

My real name means "- A rich sweet confection made with sugar and often flavored or combined with fruits or nuts.-"

Nuts is what has kept me hanging in there though..:-)

Mine is an English expression.

Randy eh?    Posted 07-01-2003 at 17:49:53       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Had to look it over...:-)


ADJECTIVE: Inflected forms: ran·di·er, ran·di·est

1a. Lascivious; lecherous. b. Of or characterized by frank, uninhibited sexuality.

2. Scots Ill-mannered.
ETYMOLOGY: Possibly from obsolete rand, to rant, from obsolete Dutch randen, ranten.

But like I said before? names can turn out to be deceitful...

Actually my grandparents (grandfather) were somewhat involved in making moonshine and bootlegging I understand. One of the brothers tried to slit the others throat and my great great aunt rubbed ashes in the cut to stop the bleeding. He lived many years after that and I have seen a picture of him with that dark ring from the ashes in the scar on his throat. These were stories told us in the last few years by Dad while he was in the hospital. Growing up we always thought we had the sweet old grandparents everyone envisions as grandparents. We were shocked. I have heard many other strange stories also. Another time maybe.

There may be hope for the next generation yet!
My neighbor's dad's name was Solon Rawson. Now there's a name you don't ever hear anymore.
