Just a little story.

Last night when I was at Fran's working on our business I did the random drawing and told her the number was 15 and that BO had won. We got talking and she asked me if I read how Bo got her name and I said no so she told me. I went to Bo's site today to read about it and it is a funny story and that got me thinking. Fran and I have a story of how we got our names. As many of you know we are named after our grandmothers. My mom's mom was Fran and my dad's was Fern. Now I don't remember how old I was when I was told this story but...when we were born I came out white and a little peaked ( I have always been anemic) and Fran was nice and rosey. Well, my dad told my mom he wanted Fran to be called Fern (his mom's name).Mom was sure it was because she came out prettier (she probably still is). Mom didn't think that was right so she SWITCHED the names. I must say at first I was a little hurt when I heard the story but now I just make sure I take my vitamins so I can have nice rosey cheeks and then no one can tell us apart!! HA! Have a great day.
