I have had some people express interest lately as to why I chose those names. I thought I would share a little background with y'all.
When I decided to start blogging, I knew pretty quickly what names I wanted to represent us.....Bonnie and Clyde. That was a pretty easy decision for me.
You see, Bonnie and Clyde's story took place right here. The area I have grown up in is rich with their history. I grew up knowing the story of Bonnie and Clyde. One of their hide outs stood as a historical marker in a park I frequent until a couple years ago when hoodlums decided to burn it down. I have always been fascinated with their love,their lives and their deaths.
When we were younger we were a bit of trouble makers. We didn't go to the extent the real Bonnie and Clyde did. No robbing banks or murder or stealing cars. However we were a kind of partners in crime. If there was trouble to get into we were in it together. Of course that has changed in recent years. Clyde has a much better handle on me now.
Bonnie and Clyde are like our alter egos. It suits us well.

Sometimes I still feel like its us against the world.
