Little Boy Finally Has a Name

Before I begin today’s post, could I ask a favor of you in praying for my grandma.  She’s having surgery today on her ankle.

**************************************

So it has only taken a week, but our little boy has a name finally.  Before I share with you his name though, I need to tell you the background story of his name.  It’s a good one!

So my dad and I work for the same company not doing the same job but doing jobs that are closely related, so names I’ve heard what feels like my whole life, I get to actually talk to these people now.  So a week ago Monday I got a phone call from one of my dad’s people saying he needed help but promised my dad he wouldn’t call him again that day so could I help.  Well Yes, I can help :).

So while we were waiting on the system to upload/update, etc side conversations were rolling and our new baby came up.  He asked me what his name was and I told him we hadn’t decided yet so he decided we needed to name him “Kernel Sanders.”

I told him this baby wasn’t a chicken to which he replied, neither was Kernel Sanders.  So we went back and forth while on the phone and then once his problem was solved, we hung up.  I had a picture of the baby so I shot it to him.

I don’t think so Tim

The next day I got a phone call from Greg informing me that Colonel Sanders was taken by a Tennessee Walking Horse up in New England somewhere, but we could spell it with a K and be okay.

 So the next day I received an email from Greg:

That’s not his name……  But he’s doin good.  I’m betting he wishes he was back in momma today since the weather turned off cold and nasty.

The next day my dad sends my husband an email and cc’ed me:

Nicole’s Hubby:
Since your colt is still un-named (at least to my perception) while I was feeding earlier today I came up with what may be the greatest name ever.  Why don’t you name him Kolonel Sanders or perhaps even Kernal Sanders.  Both of them would be unique.
Dad

I knew who the culprit was:

 And a little over an hour later I get this email from Greg:

If you’re not careful,  you may just wind yourself up in a blog post….

So I had to follow through on my threat! And that’s just what I’m doing.  Greg wound up getting himself a blog post….

And one last thing before I reveal the babies name, an email that went out this morning to Mr. Greg….

So you’re paying me Foal Support right??

By the way, just so we’re all clear, his name is not Colonel or Kernal Sanders.

But we all did agree his barn name would be Colonel
