Joel Penderghast

For those who commented on my grief (grieving)  I thank you.  I am not going to respond because I read the comments yesterday, crawled back in bed and cried.  While that doesn't sound encouraging what is encouraging is this.

Joel Penderghast -

Antagonist, I think
Joel is his middle name.  He does not like his first name. 
However, I don't know what his first name is.

That's it.  That's all I've got.  Not even a face to put with the name. Not yet.

Scotty left me a message.  I begged it of him and yet I forgot to remember it.

"There is no point fighting against the challenges of life, or trying to avoid or deny them, They are there, and if the seed is to become the flower we must go through them.  Be courageous enough to grow into the flower you are meant to be."

I thank you all for helping me to remember.  Once I did my brain started doing what it does.  Look for the story, find the wonder and just enjoy. I know that another wave will crash.  But for now the tide is out, the tidal pools are full of interesting thins and life doesn't seem like such a chore.

Question of the day:
What first name could Joel possibly have that he hates?


  1. Howard...Nigel....Ralph.....Herbert......

  2. ooo these are good.

    Herbert makes me think of the Star Trek show "herbert, herbert, herbert" also makes me think of our govenor...ahahaha oooo did I just say that.

    Nigel Joel... that has a ring to it.

    I just googled Joel Penderghast and it seems one with a similar name (Pendergast) exists. ahahah he has dogs in his photo -- hope he doesn't mind I was thinking antagonist.

  3. So far today I have spoken to a man named Whitney who refuses to answer to any version of it except Whit and a man named Anastacio who did not like his name.

    1. Whitney? Awesome. I knew a Leslie and a Shriley. I didn't know Whitney was also a man's name. Love it.

      Anastacio - now that is a fantasy name, certain sure!!

  4. Berry, as in, "yes it's spelled wrong, my mother had good intentions, just bad grammar."

    Okay, GRAMMAR is the wrong word, but you get what I'm trying to say.

  5. Berry - Mom's do that. They put you on drugs and then make you fill out birth certificates.

    My son John was supposed to be Johnathon (with an H - the way I wanted it after his grandpa John.) They put in the name they wanted 'cause I was on 'pills' and now he has the wrong name. Jonathon or Jonathan or some wrong spelling!!! Just saying.

    I like Berry. It so sounds like something I would do.

  6. Oooh ooooh....I've got it..... his mother was addicted to romance novels and she named him Fabio. He never wants anyone to know his real name.
