Happy Birthday, Vol Fan!

38 years ago today, it was Friday the 13th. Vol Fan's mother was in Germany.

And she was giving birth to what she hoped was her last child. She already had a son and Vol Fan's father wanted a daughter. And they were going to name her Tammy.

So she had a "Think Pink" baby shower. Pink clothes, pink blankets. You get the picture.

When the day finally arrived, little Tammy made her appearance.

There was an audible gasp and then silence. Crickets chirping.

Alas, Tammy had some extra parts!

So Tammy's name was changed to Vol Fan. Poor Vol Fan had to wear pink for a long time.

Personally, I'm glad that Vol Fan wasn't a Tammy - I don't think I was cut out to be a lesbian!!

Happy Birthday, Vol Fan!!

PS - The real Tammy was born a few years later.

Happy Birthday. funny about the lesbian comment. :)
She really named him vol fan? that does not sound like Tammy at all. I would think he would be Tommy or Tony???? ;)
Who says friday the 13th is bad luck? Not you.
Have a great day.

Would the two of you like to join us for plundering and drinking grog??

Vol Fan probably shouldn't wear pink for that!
