A Little of My History

I was so jellyous da other day when I saw that Frankie had gone to da Pumpkins Festival and found a street named after him.     I figured that I would NEVER find a street named after me!
Butt, my momma proved me wrong!   This weekend when her was going through some family pictures, her found THIS........
  Yeppers.....you read that right!!   It is Krebs Road, named after little ol' me....Minna Krebs!!
WoooooHOoooooos!


Here it is on da Google maps.........if you look close enoughs, you will see that Krebs Road is just off of Krebsville Road.   Heeeheheheeee~~I told ya I was famous.
This is da 'homeplace' of my momma's relatives in Fayette County, Texas.  The birthplace of da Original Minna Krebs

Now I zoomed out so you can see where its located in da State of Texas (da little red A symbol)


And here is MY Road in relation to all of North America.    I just knew you would want to see how far you live from Minna Kreb's Road!!!   HeeeHeee......



Also, when my momma was going through da family foto album, her found this picture of da Original Minna Krebs!   
We couldn't locate a foto of her before when I posted about my name.
For my new furrends, da Original Minna Krebs was my momma's Great Grandmother that her called Oma Krebs.    (sorry the foto is just a xerox of the real foto.......my momma is hoping her cousin will send us the real foto for my records)

This is da Original Minna Krebs at her 60th Wedding Anniversary Pawty.   When I was adopted, my momma thought I resembled a little German Hausfrau, so she picked my name after her "Oma"
I think da resemblence between us is remarkables!!!

da Original....
da ME !..........





What'cha think?????

Thank you for the history and geography lesson, Minna Krebs! I think you should go to school to become a teacher! I think you'd be a natural!
How exciting that you have a road named after you! It will take me hours to get to your road because I live in NH but when I can go on a road trip I will visit you for sure!

We don't think we have any streets named after any of us, Minna Krebs - you are so very lucky. But if you look straight north on that big map, we are almost directly north of you there in Texas, but all the way up there in Kansas.

I went to school with a girl named Krebs. Any relation? :)

Tank said...

Congrats Minna. I must search for something named Tank (besides toilets.)

Lucy, thanks for your warning this morning... even though it came too late. I don't seem to be influenced by any of HER evil curses though. Sadly, there are many who are...

Frankie Furter said...

Oh Minna Krebs... That Minna the Furst looks sooooooo much like you.. except her ears are shorter and her legs are longer. Well I didn't see any tail either, butt she does have a little bit of furs. Other than those thingys... the two of you look EXACTLY ALIKE!!
I love it that you found a Road and a TOWN named for YOU. Those must be wonderful places.
PeeS... If that... ummmm &^!!bigolbutt*&$ is hanging out at your place... just watch out for a visit from the PoPo. I'm just sayin'.

Levi Mac said...

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

JackDaddy said...

Oh I think that is wonderful that you are somehow connected back to your past.

I looked for you on the Google maps, but you must have been inside when they took the picture that day! :)

mayziegal said...

Gosh, that is Most Interesting, Minna! I luved finding out where Krebs Road is. It looks like it's about a jillion miles from Collie-rado, though. And I luved seeing the picture of your great, great grandma! And you're right...you're both just beautiful!

I can totally see the resemblance between you and the original Minna Krebs. If you didn't label who was who, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Well, phooey! I haven't found any road named after me! Your road is a looooooong way from where I live, so it'll be a while before I have to pay the toll on that one!
