1. Also challenging

are your FOUR names, Billy Bob Joe Ray!

It's going to take a while to get a handle on your DU handle.

8. Sarcasm

 

I had a friend who used that name as a comedian. He said being from Alabama his mom was not sure who his father was so she named him for the four most probable, Billy, Ray, Joe And Bob. Ergo Billy Ray Joe Bob.

16. You jumped in somewhere on one of my posts or mb OP? 🤔

Well, welcome y'all.

After we moved down south, friends up north could call identifying themselves as one did, 'Billy Ray Poole'. Very funny. 😏 😆

One neighbor up there, upon finding out we were relocating said to me, "You'll fit right in as a Southern Belle (bell) 'cause you're a bit of a dingaling!" This is a guy who had older children and would throw dirt laden worms at me from his garden. 🤣

Our houses at the time were very close. One night in particular 'G' fell asleep in his recliner down below and left a bright light on bugging me. Window was opened for fresh air so couldn't draw the shade. I found some salt water taffy and launched them from our 2nd floor bedroom tapping his window. That got him up. He looked around, then up, and saw me nearly ROFL. His wife told him he deserved it. She'd get annoyed when he fell asleep into the middle of the night. This guy had a day job at one of our local bank branches! 😄

17. Thanks for the welcome

 

I played music professionally for 30 years and toured most of America. Never made it to Alabama and I'm sure it's pretty but I don't deal with racism well so most likely a good thing.
