Wedding Day at our house! Lydia has her beautician fixing her hair in the dining room. Daddy (Larry) and PaPa (Gil grandad) have run for ice and trash bags. Grandma (Barb) is mixing the pasta salad after one last dusting of the house. Jerry (honorary uncle) is out sweeping sidewalks. Jeff is here already, playing a tune on the piano in the front room. He's dressed and ready. I ironed the linens, and said thanks to the family well-wishers that cannot be here. All is well. We are blessed!
So, my name is like this, Gwen is my given name, and growing up it was family that called me that. But about Jr. High, the name Pokey was what I became known as. ( Slow to get the jokes, slow to complete the work, but I call that perfectionism! or, procrastination....) When I'm at work, most people there call me Gwen (or Mrs. Davis, I'm a teacher.) BUT, my honey calls me Pokey. When I got married, our Pastor asked, "Pokey, do you take this man..." At church, I'm Pokey. My friends call me Pokey. As a matter of fact, Pokey Davis is a registered 'alias' at my bank, because occasionally people will write it on checks made out to me-! You get to choose where you want to fit. I answer to any. I wanted folks to know, the name 'Pokey' wasn't made up just for blogging!
