What's In a Name?

One of my boyhood chums was a fellow named Frank Odd. As far back as I can remember he hated his last name. I once suggested that he go to court and change it if it bothered him that much. Not Frank. He couldn’t bring himself to change the family name. When he died a couple of years ago, we discovered that he had left specific instruction to NOT put his name on his tomestone. He didn’t want folks to know where he was buried. That did no good. People still look at his marker and reply, “Isn’t that Odd?”

Funny. Now for two real ones. My friend Lynn Halfacre married Bobby Goodpasture. She was Lynn Halfacre Goodpasture. True story! And then my other one is a bit risque. My friend Sarah Morehead married my husband's co-worker, Joe Peters. She was Sarah Morehead Peters.
