Leap Day

Well, happy leap day!  More importantly Happy Birthday to all the "Leaplings" out there.
In Norway this is a big day for Heidi, Olav, and Leif-Martin the Henrikson siblings all born on Feburary29, in the years 1960, 1964 and 1968 respectively.   I was impressed….
In my research I also found that in 1904..someone had a sense of humor..
Adolph Blaine Charles David Earl Frederick Gerald Hubert Irvin John Kenneth Lloyd
Martin Nero Oliver Paul Quincy Randolph Sherman Thomas Uncas Victor William
Xerxes Yancy Zeus Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenberdorft Sr., Germany; had a Christian
name for every letter in the alphabet, shortened it to Mr Wolfe Plus 585 Sr. The world’s
longest name officially used by a person.
Remember when your kids were little and they got into trouble ..and you used their entire "given" name to really get their attention?  Well let me tell you..this child’s Mother must have had a "cheat sheet" …she must have had something so she wouldn’t get confused…in the heat of the moment..she didn’t inadvertantly call this child by his brother or sisters name..or get really confused and use the dogs name..or just say who ever you are and what ever your name is you are in really big trouble.  Maybe she just said..Hey you, when your Father gets home, if he remembers your entire name…you are really gonna get it:)

    Fun blog — by the time you’d finish saying that child’s name, you’d forget what you were going to yell at him for!
