“Lula Lola Maddy May Jane Scooterbug Drakeford Truesdale.”

Lula Lola: The Early Years.

Well, I finally decided on a name for this blog. I did some research. From everything I’ve read, I needed a concise easy to remember name. One that would let people know what my blog was about. Short and to the point, that’s what I was looking for.
Never having been one to take direction well, I have arrived at “Lula Lola Maddy May Jane Scooterbug Drakeford Truesdale.” It tells you nothing, couldn’t really be called short, and is certainly not easy to remember. But, it’s the name for me.

When I was a kid, my Dad was a mail carrier. Rural letter carrier, actually. He carried the mail in Heath Springs, SC. He really enjoyed the people on his route. And came home with funny stories and often bags of fresh vegetables from their gardens.

I’ve heard the story of Lula Lola Maddy May Jane Scooterbug Drakeford Truesdale more times than you can imagine. I know it by heart. My Dad called me this mouthful of a nick name throughout my childhood.
Here’s the story. Daddy carried the mail for a lady who was expecting a baby. She wanted to name the baby after her employer. But, she’d had so many, and she really loved all of them. So, she decided to name the baby after all of her old bosses. Thus, the baby, Lula Lola Maddy May Jane Scooterbug Drakeford Truesdale, was named.
I cannot remember where my keys are, my home phone number, the names of some people I’ve known all my life. But, I’ve never forgotten Lula Lola Maddy May Jane Scooterbug Drakeford Truesdale. If names should make an impression, hers sure made one on me. So, I figured, why not? I couldn’t think of anything that suited me any better.
Lula Lola Maddy May Jane Scooterbug Drakeford Truesdale. Kind of rolls off the tongue, don’t you think?
But, you can call me Lula Lola for short! 😉

    So far I have only worked with Blogger, but I am currently learning (by doing) a WordPress blog. So hopefully that will turn out well and I can offer that service also. 😉

    Nice name, by the way.
