"What's in a name?"
We then traveled on to a country store....still in operation after many years. We were allowed to take a few photographs and look through the ledgers that were all a part of this store's
This leads me to the thought "what's in a name?"... The history and stories behind the names. Not too far from my home is an area called Ripntuck Road. The story behind this name was as follows: A family with two sisters lived in this area and between them they had one good dress, not their every day clothing. Of the two sisters, one was tall and slender, the other a bit shorter and weighing more. Whenever one of the sisters needed to travel to town they needed to rip and/or tuck the one dress.
Please write if you have an unusual name of an area near you. Is there history behind the name? When you are traveling an area do you take notice of the names?
And to each of you have a happy rug making weekend, .....active, restful, or both......whatever you require!
