HA! I have a sister called Fred too! :)

I gave her the nickname when she was a toddler and it stuck. What about your Fred?

My sister was given the nickname by my bro-in-law maybe ten years ago. He is a musician and at their wedding he sang a song he wrote called "A Song for Fred" that reduced all us bridesmaids to tears.

My sister's real name, btw, is Kari. Is there a similar leap between your sister's name and nickname, or are they phonetically close?

My sister's real name is Ava Catherine, so the Fred came out of nowhere. She got me into LJ, her username is brknconfidents

Hurray for Fred!!

How old? It seems like she was a year or two younger than me at most. (Or maybe we are the same age. Or maybe she is younger...)

Ok, just tell me. I clearly do not remember.

Just to reiterate though, Hurray for Fred!
Watch out for the big three-oh on the horizon...

Re: Hurray for Fred!!

ok, so we're basically the same age (I'll be 30 in January too... how old does that make you feel?) Rebekah will be 23. Too, too scary!!!

Re: Hurray for Fred!!

Way too old! I remember when you were just a little squirt, and I can easily remember when your mom was pregnant with Rebekah. Ancient, is what I am feeling right now!

Re: Hurray for Fred!!

Even I vaguely remember that. I remember more clearly when Susan K. was pregnant with Amanda because she was my Sunday school teacher. Were they pregnant at the same time?

That you, Chuck? What the heck does "gymbrall" mean?
