Meet Updike

Pardon me if I say "Updike" a lot.  There is just something about the way that name clicks off the tongue that makes me want to keep saying....Updike!  And what a character.  Always bright, cheerful and compassionate, Updike seemed to be involved everywhere and with everybody.  With a servants heart, and even looking like one of Santa's most cheery and productive elves, Updike (just saying the name reminds me of the cool dual sounds made by a line drive coming off the bat and shooting right back into the pitcher's glove!) was always willing and eager to help out at our meetings, but was never, never allowed to.  Our goal instead was to see what we could do for.......Updike!

Who ARE these people anyway (read my intro here)?

Some people love to serve.  And who doesn't love to have such a person around?  Maybe that is a loaded question, but you still have to answer it!


  1. I haven't heard of Updike before, but it sounds rather like something rude you might say to a lesbian. I love different words, and often they mean nothing like they sound.

  2. I don't like the name Updike, but I do like the name Humperdinkle.Go figure.LOL. Stopping by for the ZtoA4May. K from

  3. I want to be a little like Updike when I grow up. No particular attachment to the sound of his name, though. ;)

  4. My husband is uncomfortable with a person such as this. In spite of my profession (paramedic) and my staunch equal rights stance, I love being a wifey poo! I love being a domestic godess to my husband, but he prefers to fix his own plate!


I can't wait to see your response so, unless you can leave a pizza, please leave the next best thing; your comment!
