Last night I told you all how I got my name. Tonight I will tell you how Holly got her name. Holly was my big sister. She is not around anymore. I am not really sure where she went .. but she was very old so I think I know.
Holly was a Christmas present to the kids that used to live in this house. The kids were in elementary school and they had watched a Haley Mills movie before Christmas. They wanted to name her Haley at first, but since they got her for Christmas .... decided to name her Holly ... as in a Holly bush. At least that is what they tell me.
One day the girl in the family had to make a certain kind of poem for school and she wrote this:
Holly Polly rode the trolly,
To and from the city.
She was very pretty.
And so was her friend Molly.
My Mom still remembers that poem. If I had been a girl, my name would have been Molly .... I guess. This picture is of me when I was about a year old and Holly was 14.
