Shaggy called me recently and asked if I could change his moniker here.
I readily agreed...he hasn't been Shaggy since February 2010.
When I began blogging in 2009, he most definitely was.
Since we are gearing up for the local fair again, I thought I'd take us all down memory lane.
I must say there are things about his high school career that I would like to forget, but being in 4-H, FFA and the Ag department is not on of them.
The friendships he made there are priceless.
The lessons, invaluable.
A friend told me recently that "dirt and country is in that boy's blood".
Anyway, his hair was long...and shaggy-ish.
(Truth be told, I loved it when it was long.
Probably because it reminded me of when he was little)
I remember vividly one weekend that I returned home from the coast and caught a glimpse of a man in the doorway of the garage that I didn't recognize.
I wondered what friend Shaggy had over and then realized it WAS Shaggy.
In the years since, his hair has gotten shorter.
So...I need your help.
He needs and wants a new nickname.
My folks like "Lanky".
He all but vetoed that. (Sorry, Mom and Dad)
Will you help?
