You have some really good name ideas. We are calling Andrew's girlfriend "Sweet Alice," although I will usually just refer to her as "Alice" in honor of Cathy's mother who died one year ago and was joined by her husband, Cathy's father, just recently.
When the original Sweet Alice died Cathy wrote to us:
With Dr. Strangelove and the Doo Wop Boys standing in attendance we watched
as she left to join her beloved parents and siblings. There was a tremendous burst of thunder accompanied by a distant lightning bolt and more rumbling thunder.
We all looked around, smiled and said, "Well, she's there."
I would not presume to use her name except by Cathy's request. She did suggest it and I am honored to name Andrew's Girlfriend after such a strong and beloved woman.
You all gave me some wonderful suggestions. I appreciate them!
Cathy does not blog herself, but she is a long-time reader, periodic commenter and email buddy. This blog started out as a way to vent what I couldn't say in other places. It became a way to make many new friends. There are no words for how much that means to me.
