I have a cat named Mukki. The naming process for the cat is a long story and not particularly interesting so I’ll skip that and note that Mukki’s name has evolved to just “Muck.”
I moved to Mecklenburg County on January 3, 2006, in part because of its proximity to the coast and the mountains, both of which I grew up with in California. I love to travel and explore my new home. I’ve been all over this state and neighboring states. Without fail, every time I return to the area and see the sign that says “Entering Mecklenburg County,” I say to my fellow travelers, “Welcome to MUCKlenburg County.” Without fail, I am the only person in the car who thinks it’s funny.
