About the Site
Why didn’t I think of this sooner? My first name is Ken, an ordinary name. My wife’s name is Jolie. Not that common a name. Buried in her jewelry box is a script style nameplate on a necklace that bears her name. We named our son Aidan and our daughter Jade, somewhat unusual names. Thinking back to when the kids were little they got many cute baby gifts with their names printed on them. Some things were never used. We tried but could not give that stuff away. Who wants an Aidan bathrobe or a Jade hat if your name is not Aidan or Jade no matter how cute it was?
Over the years we’ve also had our fair share of autographed memorabilia. Who else but another Kenny would appreciate my Don Mattingly baseball? It got me thinking . . . maybe there are other Don Mattingly fans with the name Kenny who would covet this precious baseball as I once did.
