My first name is Kathy-Lee and I'm picky about the hyphen. My late husband called me Kayelle and my internet screen name has always been Kayelle because hyphenated first names won't work with most sites. I could have just used KL I guess, but I've always thought Kayelle was a pretty name, and unusual.

My pinup avitar is named Trixie........she's my alter ego.

My Best Friend gave me my name. She called me an ogre once and when she started writing her Blog I morphed into PrincessFiona and DH became Shrek. We liked it. The 60 was added when I tried to create a new Yahoo ID and there were already so many PF's out there.

Shrek likes to be known as Boogie-Man, since he is a guitar man. But I like Shrek...so, that's us.

Andy M.

My name is significant because it indicates my real identity. I am Dorothy's Auntie Em (Andy M.) from the Wizard of Oz.

Most people don't realize that the Wizard of Oz is a true story, fictionalized for the movie. The real Andy M. from the story was a man (me) but was turned into a female for the movie and the name was modified to accommodate the gender change.

The real story is about a young girl who was lost in a tornado in the dust bowl in the 30s. She was missing for some time and the family was beginning to think they would never see her again.

Many months later she reappeared as a changed person. Upon investigation, the police found she had actually run off to California and was making her way selling illegal substances to the Hollywood set.

Several months into this new endeavor she got tired of the wicked life she was leading and headed home. She arrived at the farm late one night and walked into Andy M.'s room and tried to awaken him, by calling out, "Andy M., Andy M.", while pulling his leg...




...just like I'm pulling yours right now.
