It must be the intense heat today.

It's making me silly.

From the iconic Beth Spotswood on the birth of Gavin's new baby:

It's a girl, which we knew.
They named it Montana, which explains why they didn't want us to know.

***

I'm just thinking out loud here, since Beth started it. I mean, why didn't they name the baby California, if they were going to go with a state? No one in Montana is voting out here (I'm assuming) for our next governor.

Or they could have called her Ashbury Heights, to keep it local.

I haven't been able to open your site in FOREVER - an upgrade to Snow Leopard seems to have done the trick - that and a new faster router ....
I've missed you ... am heading back in the archives to see what I've missed
much love

Maybe "Montana" is the new in-name for girls? What do we know? But I can just hear her classmates in 4th, 5th grade - "here Monty Monty Monty." It's almost as bad as "A boy named Sue."

Or Hippie Hill?

Just catching up on your blog. Congratulations on your recent successes. It feels like you're building up to a critical mass of energy and success. It's going to be explosive soon.

Had it been a boy they could have just named it Joe -- maybe with a middle of Montana...

Maybe they've been watching Hannah Montana...I know this...I give thanks that naming children after places wasn't the "done" thing when I was born. I had a hard enough time with a name that was common ... I dread to think what it would have been like should my parents have had a fondness for Kalamazoo.

I would vote for Ashbury Heights too.
Very funny!
