What to write? What to write?

When in doubt, look to family for inspiration! This is my sister. We decided to give her a nickname for the sake of anonymity. From this day forward, you will know her as LucyJane.

Why LucyJane? Well, our grandmother (not Joy with the teeth) gave us nicknames when we were young 'uns. Hers was LucyJane. Isn't that cute? My sister hated it. But, wait til you hear mine. Jabber Jabber Jones. Ok. I have always liked to talk! My own grandmother called me on it!

LucyJane has just got to be my best friend in the whole wide world. We crack each other up. We have the same mannerisms, sense of humor, parents. We are a force to be reckoned with.

Last week, she sat at my computer to read my blog and said "You haven't mentioned me yet." Well, I had, but she is not a regular reader.

I imagine, being the attention seeker that she is, she will be thrilled that I dedicated an entire post to her!

Here is a little something she forwarded to me not long ago.

"She is your partner in crime,
your midnight companion, someone
who knows when you are smiling, even in
the dark. She is your teacher, your defense
attorney, your personal press agent, even your
shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish
you were an only child."

I'm sure you'll hear more about her in future posts. Indeed, you could say she has been my inspiration my whole life! After all, I am younger. he he he

  1. Do y'all have any idea how much you look alike? Freaky! Gosh, I'd be lost w/o my baby sister. Aren't we lucky girls to have 'em? Tn'T

  2. How wonderful to meet your sister! She should be a faithful reader though. What's wrong with our families? They are supposed to be waiting on the edge of their seats to read our dribble. Tell my family that if you ever meet them, ok?

  3. And she's cute and she smells good.

  4. You are right, FringeGirl. LucyJane should be a faithful reader. My Mom and Dad read daily! In fact, maybe I'll make those introductions in the next day or two. ~Mindy

  5. It is really great to meet your sis! And I love her nickname. My mom had the nickname "TommyLou", given by her grandma and I always loved it.

    Thanks for sharing.
