The Mister and I had a hard time agreeing on names, but we both loved the name Jedediah ("Jed") and had agreed to use that for a first name if our child was a boy. But then we shared our plans with the Mister's family and they set about disabusing us of the ideah. "Just picture the poor lad in school," they cried, "trying to write his name across the page while next to him are Joe and Pam and Bill! Why, by the time he has finished pushing that pencil through all the letters of Jedediah, the rest of the kids will have finished the task and be outside playing!"
We tried to explain that he would be known as "Jed," but it was no use. Okay, okay. We acquiyessed and compromised by using it as his middle name. Daniel Jedediah does have a nice ring to it. I should ask him, now that he's an adult, whether he likes it. Or, no, maybe it's better not to ask!
Does anybody remember what we were talking about before that field trip? I do! The Merry Monday Challenge! Here is the lovely inspiration photo.
I was going to introduce my new friends to you, but this is getting too long to hold your interest, so I'll do so in my next post, which is a scheduled one for Saturday. We are fortunate to have the twins with us again, so I will be busy doing a lot of offline activities between now and next Tuesday. Please forgive me if I don't get a chance to visit you for several days. I wish all my American friends a lovely long holiday weekend!
