What's In a Name?

Here I am, newbie blogger.

I thought about taking a page from David Copperfield (that is, David Copperfield the Charles Dickens novel rather than David Copperfield the creepy magician who allegedly holds eleven Guinness World Records including that for "Largest Collection of Magic Artifacts") and starting with Chapter One: I Am Born. But that's not too much better than starting with the cooling of the earth. To make a long story short, as soon as I figure out how to work the scanner at the office, I'll post my high school quiz team photo and that will tell you everything you need to know. I'm a geek. Older now (not necessarily wiser), but still geeky.  

Back to the name of the blog, the whole point of this post. Wahoo is a town in Nebraska, a Native American yell (it means "You Go Girl" in the language of Pocahontas), a fish that can allegedly drink twice its weight in rum and Cokes, and, most importantly, someone who went to the University of Virginia. In other words, me. I like the fact that Wahoo is one letter away from yahoo. The Wandering part refers not only to traveling here and there, and to my eye (I can't not look), but also to my attention span. According to some, I have the attention span of a gnat with ADHD. But they're wrong. It's more like that of a gnat with HGTV.

This blog will be a mixture of prose, and photos, and if I get run over by a tow truck (again) perhaps even some haiku. So don't count on the haiku, OK? 

Oh and one last many thanks to my chum Dana for helping me to design this. She took some of my photos and helped me to get the layout of the blog to look as I wanted it to look. Yay Dana! You're the best!
