Well I can't fight it - and find I don't want to anyway. So many sweethearts here in J-Town have admitted to calling me Luddie rhyming with Muddy, and are so used to it, I happily surrender! IT'S OKAY!! My family put that moniker on me early, as in Ludwig (for my hero Mr. Beethoven) but who's to say people didn't pronounce Ludwig as Ludd instead of Lood, right? Right!
So "Luddy" it is. "Cathy" isn't bad either lol.
