thessminnow

Some people have asked me why this blog is called The SS Minnow...
Well isn't it obvious that I love Gilligan's Island?
Actually there was a time back in late 2005 when cousins and family members of mine were starting up blogs. They were Salmon's (my former last name) so naturally the witty titles had things to do with fish.

So oddly enough I came up with The SS Minnow.

The SS part was to stand for Sara Salmon, and minnow- a small fish...
(I was 17 at the time, I was just a little fish then).

 When marriage looked like a possiblitiy in my life I knew I had to choose someone with a name that started with S. Luckily Spencer fit the bill. So we are still The SS Minnow.

So there you have it. I hope you enjoyed this "3-hour tour" on the naming of this blog.
