BIRD LEGS ELLIOTT
by Nicki Marian

Suddenly, I became very tall! It was obvious that long skinny legs dominated my appearance. "The Queen", my mother, was barely 5'. And, I sorta galumped along beside her.

One summer, The Royal Family sent The Imp to a wondrous camp near Estes Park in Colorado. What fun to be on my own ... yippee!!

The first time I appeared in shorts, someone yelped, "Look at Bird Legs!" The great laughter from the rest of the girls in my cabin was aimed at ME! When they learned that my last name was 'Elliott', I became "Bird Legs Elliott".

As the summer went on, my name was shortened to "Ba-Lliott". Many of us continued going to summer camp each year and my name was always passed on to the newcomers. At least, they didn't know about 'Yaney', 'Dolly Dimples' and 'The Imp'. It could have been worse ... right?

On to "ELLIOTT and DOUBLE DITCH DAY"
