Yesterday before leaving for work I went up to my husband who was standing at the campfire stove making breakfast and gave him a dozy embrace. I think I will always do it that way!

My son and daughter in law announced last week that they were expecting a new baby in september........then yesterday, my son told me the names that they have chosen....Madison if its a girl, and Jack if its a boy.......

I turned to him with a big smile, and out of my mouth came, "Jackfuckin' Twist"....I swear, I couldnt stop the words spilling out of me.....

My son laughed, and said "I knew, you would think of Brokeback when I told you that".....and I laughed and said, "good, and I love the name"......

Only trouble now is.......if it is a boy, and he's called Jack, how the hell am I ever gonna be able to say his name without thinkin' "fuckin' Twist" after it..........

Maybe it might be best if it turns out a girl........I like Madison (Maddy) too........

Congratulations, it's always a joy when a new baby comes to the family  :).

 :D That's sweet, funny and understandable.  :D

Call him Jackie as long as he's little. Later you will be used to Jack without 'fTwist' behind it  ;D.

 :laugh: My son's name is Jack, and I've never once been even momentarily tempted to think or say "Jack fuckin' Twist" to him (of course, now I will probably think of it). He's 10, so I knew him for a long time before I saw BBM, though. And, as Chrissi suggests, we started out calling him Jackie.

Plus, there's no stoppin' a heavy-duty Brokie from adding those two words after ANYone's name. :)

Congratulations on the future grandbaby, Sue!

Thanks everyone for your best wishes on the new grandchild.....

Have a feeling that the little bloke will end up with an "add on" to his name anyway....dont ask me why, but with our other two grandsons, instead of shortening their name, we actually add on something extra...like Jai,(pronounced Jay).. we add on "man", and call him "Jai Man"...and Logan, we call "Logan Berry".....so guess if Nana gets in first, little Jack might just happen to get "Jack Twist"...(I'm sure I can curb my thoughts to leave out the f***n' bit)......

Anyway......might not be a little Jack....might be little Maddy (Madison), where no doubt, I will think of "County" on the end of that one......Bridges of Madison County, was probably my all time favourite movie before i saw Brokeback.

I ran an errand to the post office over my lunch hour.

Here in Philadelphia this afternoon, the sky is gray and lowering, and the air is damp, with a certain smell to it that usually precedes snow. So when I got back to the office, I said to my cubemate. ...

"It's gonna snow tonight for sure."

Gee, Jeff, I hope it does.  Our East Coast tent don't look right somehow without it.  :P

I was listening to the weather on the news this morning when the words Del Mar jumped out at me.  The weatherman was describing the weather south of us in an area he called the Del-Mar peninsula:  where Delaware and Maryland come together.  8)

 :laugh: You sure you didn't just miss the last syllable? It's usually "Delmarva." Virginia comes in there, too, down at the bottom.  ;D

A winter without snow don't sound quite right, either.  ;D

Nope, he just said Del-Mar.  Must be a closet Brokie.  ;D
