Green Acres is The Place To Be

If you read my previous post you’re probably wondering if I made a typo when I mentioned my sister was named Ralph. Or perhaps you’re wondering who in their right mind would name a girl Ralph. Well, there’s a story to that. My sister was born in 1970 and was named Mary Elizabeth after our great-grandmother. I was the tender age of four and more interested in the hit show Green Acres than I was in having a new sister. Actually, I wanted an older brother and my mother pointed out that was never going to happen. So, my parents were testing out nicknames for their newest bundle of joy when I decided she should be called Ralph after the female character in Green Acres. I still call her this as do my mom, husband and my dad. Everyone else calls her Mary.
