1) Do you know how your parents chose your name and why?


My mother's favorite movie at the time was Dr. Zivago and she loved that song called "Lara's Theme" (Somewhere my love), but she didn't want me called Laura, she wanted Lara (pronounced Layrah). She eventually decided to name me her second choice of Lauren because she figured no one would say Lara right,

1) Do you know how your parents chose your name and why?
No special connection to anything.

2) Have you ever had a nick name?
When I was little I was a real "carrot top" and therefore called “red” a lot. Fortunately as I got older my hair darkened.

3) What is your favorite Holiday TV show or Movie?
“A Christmas Story”

4) Are you ready for the Holidays?
Not really however I tend to do my shopping Christmas eve so I have a couple weeks yet.

5)What are your plans for this weekend?
Just hanging around the house – doing a little projecting.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and a great week ahead!
Marty

Dear Mary, Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. There can be No greater tragety than losing our dear children. May God's hope- filled promises bring comfort to your soul and peace to your heart. Love Jane

Oh Mary,


How Tragic. I can't even begin to imagine how difficult that was. Know my thoughts are with you.
