Subject: RE: BS: 'Mudcat' and other Unusual Nicknames
Though seldom called that now, my 78 year old mother was known for years as "Goldie" Schulz (and my father was "Bud") -- imagine her delight when she found the series of food mysteries with "Goldie Schultz" as the main character!

I also have an Aunt Toots (Minerva). Again, there are few people who still call her that. (Though the nicknames were still going strong into the '70s!)
