More fun with Pictures

Every Web Journal I've read has this same picture frenzy in it when the writer finally finds out how to put pictures in it.  This is my attempt to put a smaller picture in....since my last two were rather HUGE (beautfiul, but huge.)

This is one of member of "the Zoo" -- our cat family (of six.)  This is "Bebe" (pronounced bee-bee, like the gun.)  It's a known fact, at least in our house, that an animal never retains its original name.  The story of Bebe is this:  I wanted to name her "Tup-tim," (after a character in The King & I).  Husband decided on "Ming", which I never really liked, but it stuck...for awhile.  Until I got into the habit of coming home from work and calling out, "Where's my bebe?"  (baby talk"baby.")  And she started answering to it.  So she has no idea her name is "Ming," and we haven't called her that for years.  Makes it interesting when you take her to the vet..."What's the cat's name?"   Haven't been brave enough to tell any vet we call her "Bebe"...too hard to explain, and, well, you sort of had to be there...  The veterinary world will always know her as "Ming."

  1. Awww, that's a very good picture! It captures her personality.

    I wouldn't be embarrassed to tell the vet her name was "Bebe". They have probably heard much worse than that. :-)
