Nicknames - take two

Posted June 9, 2009 10:16 a.m. EDT

Somehow my blog contest about nicknames got lost in the blizzard of bad news yesterday and didn’t make the front page headlines. Thanks to marywag or “Doodle-Bug” for her fine post. I thought we would extend the contest for one more day.

The person who posts the most interesting nickname and story behind that name wins a prize. I’ll send a copy of Ed Southern’s book Voices of the American Revolution in the Carolinas to the winner.

Just a reminder, tomorrow is weigh day in the Ten Pounds Down weight loss challenge. How is everyone doing? Please keep us posted.
