Yes, it's Legs and I've had it since 8th grade when I scored the highest leg strength in physical fitness tests in our State. ... probably because I had done Ballet since I was 5. But at 87 the nickname "Legs" takes a lot of explaining.

For years, my father had the nickname of Pappy.  After he died in 1990, I assumed the nickname of Pappy to honor my father.

Veronica is my nickname. I always hated my name, Ronni, since everyone assumes that I am a guy so I tell people that they can call me by my nickname, Veronica. Not everyone gets my joke.

My nickname came from the fact that I always smile and am in a joyful mood, it is "sunshine". By the way, my first name means "light" in Spanish)!)
