Thread Name: BS: Origin of your mudcat handle
Subject: RE: BS: Origin of your mudcat handle
My family (my mother, my father, and my father's wife) were shunned by my father's sister. Her daughter - my cousin, found out about my birth but was never allowed to meet me. (she was 11 when I was born) She wrote "Joybell's birthday" in her birthday book. It took her 56 years to find me but she still had the old birthday book. I liked the nickname.
Cheers, Joy
