Last names are fascinating. Consider my neighborhood of four hundred homes, built in the early 80s, two stand out more than the other three hundred and ninety–eight. Why? They post a carved wooden sign on the garage and front of the house displaying their last name. People do that sort of thing, you know, like The Gomez’s, The Smith’s The Fong family…you get the idea. I think it’s cute and homey…if that is a word.
