On one hand, I felt outnumbered and on the other hand, male or female, good folks are good folks and there seems to be a great gang here. I don’t have a lot of friends I can talk to about what I read, even though it’s such a huge part of my life, so I think I’m going to have a lot of fun here.

You have all erased any doubts about my welcome here and I hope you will all enjoy my posts as much as I have enjoyed yours.

Well, everyone calls me Tom. Which is okay. I’m certainly not above simply being known as Tom.
The thing is though, while it’s true that I’m used to being called Tom, I actually enjoy being addressed by my full name. The only ones who ever do that are my Mom and Theresa. I guess I’ve never suggested it to my friends before because I didn’t want them to think I was getting above myself. What other reason would I have to rebel against a lifelong tradition.
Still, I like my full name. My brothers and sister were all named to honor relatives, both first and middle names for maximum coverage. When I was born, Mom was in a bit of a whimsical mood so she decided to name me after Thomas Edison (though my middle name is actually Edward). I’ve always thought that was kind of cool.
I also have very fond memories of my Gramma calling me, in her thick Dutch accent, Thōmus. Whenever I think of that, I am reminded of the taste of gouda cheese and milk fresh from the cow as well as the rugged beauty of the West Kootenay region of British Columbia where their farm was.
So, now that you mention it, go ahead and call me Thomas. If I have the same name as a better looking guy with nanos, that’s fine with me.

I do believe that's the best answer I've ever seen for that one! LOL
