Clarification on Baby Rice’s name

Let me address the question a couple of people have asked about my new granddaughter’s name, Hazel Julia Rice: was she named after Julia Roberts?

The answer is, “HELL, NO!”

Yeah, Hazel is the name of one of Julia Roberts’ twins, but Courtney and John chose the name because they liked it. And the middle name is in honor of John’s great-grandmother.

It’s a funny coincidence, but trust me, there was no intentional connection.

Used to love the TV show "Hazel" back in the late 50's or early 60's. In reruns of course.....hehe. Anybody else remember it?

I sure do! With Shirley Booth. Except I remember the show in prime time. I was very, very young, of course!
