What's in a Name?

I put my blog on lock down yesterday, so I could make a few changes. I've been wanting to rename my blog for a very long time now. There are so many The ____ Family blogs out there, and I wanted to stand apart.... just a *smidgen* at least.

And, I will also be the first to admit that I am technically challenged when it comes to this blogger stuff. So, please bear with me.... it is definitely not the finished product. The background is a bit loud, but it'll work for the time being. I have an idea of what I want, but I'll probably just have to hire someone to do it for me one day!

Anyhow... onto the new name. Bob's dad coined Winston (our labradoodle) regal, a long time ago. According to, regal means:

1) of or pertaining to a king; royal. {not Winston.}

2) befitting or resembling a king. {not Winston.}

3) stately; splendid. {Winston!}

Winston is so photogenic, and stately in so many pictures.... hence, the nickname. He's also a pretty darn smart, talented frisbee catching pup!

So, back in either 2006, or early 2007, I created my first blog. I honestly don't remember the title, but it was Bob and I's life through the eyes of Winston. I think I had maybe 5 readers. So, I have gone full-circle with this blog. I will not blog through the eyes of Winston (as if!), but my blog's namesake will most definitely bring him the notoriety he once had {wink, wink.}

Here's to another 3 more years of blogging! (And, then some...)
