Several people have asked me if we will be naming our new (to us) motor home. Before we found her I played with several possible names, but now none of them are right.
Boats get names. And this one is as big as a boat and will be taking us on land cruises. Boats are referred to as "she" and that feels right for her as well. But as for now she doesn't have an official name.
We have always had a difficulty with the naming of our furry family members. Several times the names they were given upon joining our family did not "stick." One cat started out as Niblick because she was found on a golf course and I guess a niblick is a kind of golf club. But we just called her "the cat" and later "Momma Cat" after she had kittens.
One of my yellow labs started out as "Blondie" but quickly became "Odie" when she was dominated by the cat.
"Kittyarra" a cat name picked out before getting the cat, became "Spookie" because he was black, it was Halloween, and he was a scardy cat and easily spooked.
So for now our motor home is simply "the Alfa." It feels like the right handle. And it is a she.
One more day ...
