    My Bredli girl has a name, meet...

    Usually I take a little more time to get to know my animals before finalizing a name, but this time a name just popped out while brainstorming and was a no-brainer...

    As many of you know, my grandfather passed recently. He and I were very close, and the man was my hero.
    Well, Pepere left me a couple bucks and a portion of the money he left went to purchasing my new girl...

    His name was Fernand, or Fern for short. His nickname was Frenchie, given to him in WWII.

    When I said this name the other night my girlfriend and I just looked at each other and nodded, "YUP!"

    So without further ado, meet Fernie.

    ....a somewhat feminine mashup of Fern and Frenchie, and a tribute to my grandfather. I miss you, old man. I'll see you again some day, but for now a piece of you will live on through Fernie.

    Rest in Peace Fernand E. Frechette.
    I love you.

    What a perfect name, great way to remember your Grandfather!
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.
