Lesley Jane Fisher is my namesake. Her first baby Ruby Jean is named for her father's mother, and was born yesterday, Sunday, February 6th. in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
By great coincidence, my Great Aunt and Grandmother, both the same woman was Ruby Jean. My Mother's aunt was Ruby Jean (McDougall) Scott. My Grandfather on my Father's side married the widowed Ruby Jean when his second wife died and thus my Great Aunt also became my Grandmother! Ruby Jean figures largely in my life.
I was surprised that Lesley and Tom chose such a vintage name, but it does have a southern ring to it, and this precious little one starts the tradition all over again.
It's a great big world for a little girl. Welcome Ruby Jean. A new playmate for Zoë Jane! And quite a few more grandmothers into the mix. Congratulations Dana, Judith, Kathy, Penelope, Barbara - AND....GREAT Grandmother DORIS VanBever!
I find it quite amusing that this little ditty is by "Essie Jain".
