Thread Name: Nickname II
Subject: RE: Nickname II
While my name is Jeanene, a lot of people turn it into "Jeannie," as my grandpa did.  I just thought the modidfied spelling had more magic to it.

BTW, Spaw, I always assumed you took your nickname because you were the proverbial
"cat's paw" -- i.e., the one who gets suckered into doing other people's
dangerous/dirty work! (It's an old fable-- Aesop or someone like that.)  But I like the bit about your cats playing your dulcimers.  Mine just try to do data entry on my computer.
