Baby Boomer Babbling-er-Musings

I'm from the baby boomer generation. I have a mop of white hair, courtesy of my gene pool. And a botox-free face that sports frown lines in the forehead and around the eyes. Love handles instead of a waistline. Can't say I'm exactly crazy about any of these old age indicators but I accept them with grace. And now I've lived long enough now that I ponder on a lot of things, new and old.

Help Name Me!

Help Name Me!

Nestled in the barn, out of the weather, the itty bitty 1954 Aljoa vintage camper is still nameless.  After compiling a list of names, I'm trying to narrow it down to about ten favorites.  I think, though, that I would like an outside opinion, just in case I'm overlooking a good one.  So here are all the names under consideration. Please feel free to comment and tell me your favorite(s) in the comment box below.

Which one (or two or three) do YOU like best?
My little itty camper really needs a name that's not "itty camper"


  1. So many choices - no wonder you've had a hard time picking a name!!
    I have 3 faves: Tin Can Allie, Honey Wagon and
    Shutter Bug!!
    Whatever you call her, she's going to be so much fun!! Enjoy!!

  2. I love offering opinions! My choices are "Lil' Buck since you live in, on or around Buck Mountain or southernized "Lil' Al Buck" for Alumnim Buck Mount. For yours love Allie Jo, Clicking Chick is catching or The Wee Pea. Best of luck!

    "The Long Long Trailer" was one of my favourite Lucy Movies :)

  4. No updates? What did you end up naming her?
