Some Characters You May Run Into On my Blog

Standard

Just for fun, I made a list of some characters you might find on my blog.

Vince

SHS27-Shag-Red-Bull__69758_std

My husband since 1987.  Lovely man, outstanding cooking skills and the patience of a saint.

Joe College = Firstborn son

joe cool

formerly known as:   Imp 1

Ridiculously talented. Foremost characteristics: sharp wit, willingness to argue from sunup to sundown, charm and kindness. Royal pain the the backside but we love him anyway.

Imp 2 = My baby.

Imp2

He’s 13 now so it’s the last time I will ever say that in public . Old soul enveloped in a space-cadet, wrapped in an enigma.

Has very big feet and an even bigger heart.

The World Traveler = My best friend since 1979.

Cats

If he were in “Cats” he’d be Bustopher Jones, the “cat about town”. See image, lower right corner.

The Prince of Darkness = My brother.

Uncle Hardrock  = FOTI’s brother

Heavy-Metal-42644

Bonny Anne = My Sister-in-law

Anne_Bonny_by_PawnAttack

Descended from privateers.   The woman not only knows her way around boats, she’s got the organizational skills of a five-star general, she’s a lot of fun and oh yeah, she’s smart and beautiful too. You could hate her guts, but she’s far too adorable to hate.

Cakeboy = My nephew.

Cakeboy

Son of The Hardrock Uncle and Bonny Anne. Spits footballer, cake expert and all around good guy.

Princess Fiona = My niece,

quizilla-princess-fiona

Twin sister of above. Face of an angel, belches like a biker.

A regular bossy boots because she needs to be as all her cousins are boys. My kind of gal.

GMOTI = Grandmother Of The Imps

steamer trunk

The mother-in-law. She’s also grandmother to Cakeboy and Princess Fiona, and step-grandmother to a whole tribe in Enschede but that’s too big an acronym. She travels. Alot.

Miss M. = Best friend of Imp 1.

lbd

Another bossy boots. This is a good thing. Looks more than a little like Ms. Hepburn.

The County Swain = Another one of Imp 1’s friends.

Business

Farmboy on a fast track to being a Turbo Tukker.

The Big Man = One of the Paesani

Jagermeister

In a land of large, tall people  he is very big. Excellent cook, Springsteen fan.

Little Big Man =  Youngest son of above and friend of Imp 2

dj

He will probably wind up bigger and taller than his dad.  Plays goalie for (field)Hockey Club Twente and the Youth Selection East. Budding DJ.

The Unsinkable Sheila Z. = My belly dance instructor 

ATS belt

The Divas = The Thursday morning belly dance class

harem

Toos = One of my dearest and most unusual friends.

She is also one of The Divas.

Skipper = A Jack Russell who thinks she’s a pitbull

FOTI’s dog. Terror of the streets of Hengelo.

“Mighty” Mack = A Bullmastiff  who thinks he’s a lapdog.

My dog.  A canine philosopher.

Adorable man. Biggest flirt in the family.  Knows about wine.

Professor P. – “Baby” sister of the World Traveler

Back in 1981, when she was learning to talk, the WT and I decided it was up to us to build her swearing vocabulary. She went on to become a Professor of English (and still swears to standard!).
