    Well basically I am named after my two grandfathers, Hiram Lloyd McElrath and Franklin Evander Hanna. I could have been called Hiram Evander but luckly I got Franklin Lloyd Hanna. Well my dad is Franklin Evander Jr. but goes by Frank. When he was in the Army his best bud called him Hank Franna just as a joke.

    To make a long story longer when I was born my dad's friend JD swore that he was gonna call me Hank. It somehow stuck and there it is!
    Beannacht Dé,
    Hank

    But she somehow did not get the number of kilts right!! Otherwise an outstanding article - you certainly give us something to be measured against. Thank you for championing the cause.
