Name The New Girls Contest

It's an amazing transformation. Some will recall he burst on the scene here wild as a march hare. But not unlike Mr. Edwards from Little House on the Prairie, Old One-eyed Calico Jack's rough edges are starting to soften.


He didn't quite know how to act around the ladies at first. In fact I think he was plum terrified of them. It stands to reason now that I see how many feathers are starting to grow back on his head. I never realized how literally henpecked he'd been before getting his own place. The poor bugger.

The new girls are still young. Too young for any shenanigans and Jack knows that. So he's actually been a gentleman in that regard. So my realization of being a chicken pimp hasn't materialized. In his rough and gruff manor he has been teaching them things like how to roost and where to find the best morsels though. Unlike Jack, the ladies are quite civilized and social. Their gentle influence is making a remarkable change in Old Jack's demeanor. In fact, they've even taught him some table manners and he's now eating out of my hand.


So now that it seems this relationship will last, I feel it's time to name the new girls. I didn't really want to continue the pirate theme since they're a different breed than the others and certainly better behaved. I considered a "ladies of the evening" theme. Something like Lola and Trixie or something, but now that doesn't seem right either. They're too nice of girls for that. So I decided to leave it up to you all.


If you've been reading this blog for awhile and are not reading the comment section, you're missing the best part. There are some really, really funny people reading this blog and some of the comments will make you pee your pants and cry like a baby. So who better to name the new girls? And there might even be a prize involved...

I think I'll cast my vote for Minnie and Pearl!

(and you are right -- I always try to read the comments people leave because there are definitely some very witty people out there!)

Carol said...

Since you say they are so sweet I have to go with:

Sugar
Honey

I'm not real imaginative am I? They certainly are cuties and they look like very nice little girls.

I'm always careful not to drink anything while reading either your post or the comments, so that I don't spew Sprite all over my laptop while laughing my hiney off! Today was no exception. First there was your comparison of Jack to Mr. Edwards from Little House. Ha ha ha ha!! Then I read Milah's names suggestions! Bwah ha ha ha!!!
