Geri inspired

Geri inspired this thread. Those with weird or unrecognizable handles or usernames, feel free to explain them. My "davetgabby" is simply my first name followed by the initial of my last name Thorpe followed by gabby , which is my wife's nickname. the small t acts like a plus sign therefore dave and gabby; LOL

My mother thought I was a boy so I was to be named Mason Leo after my 2 grandfathers, when I showed up as a girl my name was quickly changed to Leigha Mason

Which was usually followed by DANGIT! (As in LEIGHAMASONDANGIT!)

Okay Dave, here you go. Pjewel stands for perfect jewel. The story is, before we got engaged, my husband took me with him to pick out an engagement ring (a wonderful idea). We both had contacts through the family to diamond dealers. When we walked into the place (recommended by my family), the guy had three rings for me to try. They were all nice, but one had a stunning stone. I, of course, picked that one (not coincidentally, the most expensive). The dealer said to my then fiance, "I'll put them all behind my back and mix them up. She'll never know which is which." Time and again I picked the "gem."

So, the story he told for years was "she's blind as a bat, but she can see a flaw in a diamond at twenty paces." Hence, the moniker "perfect jewel."

How sweet is that Geri, thanks for sharing. Can't wait to hear from Thumper. And I guess Heather's is straight forward. . If anyone has someone they'd like to hear from , call them out. Need a few laughs. We're getting another snow storm.

Sorry Dave, no laughs with mine. The name of my corp was Iron Island Fitness, hence Irnfit.

Geri, love your story.

It was a funny story. He got a lot of mileage out of it. It still makes me smile to this day.

Oh Geri I LOVE your story. I am The Laughing Magpie, there is a Australian wine with the same name, not why I use this name but, DH gave me some for Christmas two years ago. When I moved here from So.CA because it was eaiser for me to relocate (the bribe was I would not have to work unless I wanted to) DH had been married to a woman who was very notorious in these parts. Here in our small circle, south: Gossip the bitcher and meaner the best. Yep! Its served with sweet tea and a insincere smile. Every quicy tidbit is examined in titillating detail, this happens so often it takes on a life of its own. So this is how the word on the ex has come about some true, some with a whole nether world mystique. The part I did not appreciate is how so many wanted to share this gossip with me the newbe. As time went on I did not rise to the bait and acted uninterested. So the ante went up. I would get these calls and when I would say she didn't live here, people would argue and say things like since when, and I am her best friend and she will be back etc. So I started saying she has been gone for 4 yrs and he has married someone new, then they would say, can't be they never heard such a thing, so when did this happen and to who? I said her name is "Magpie". They would say what kind of name is that and I would say I believe she's a native american. This would get a you don't say. Pretty soon all over town people were talking about Magpie, DH's partners would tell him this rumor. It wasn't until he got the American Express invitation for his wife Magpie that he need to be fully enlightened, so he dubbed me Laughing Magpie because I was having a big laugh at the town gossips' expense and as we all know Magpies talk and talk and talk.

These stories are so interesting....

When we lived in OH we had acreage in the country. The property was located halfway between the small towns of Bellbrook and Waynesville....hence "Waybrook" became the name for our home and land....
