Malcolm

It’s Malcom’s day! I’ve liked him for a long time, since I was a teen, at least. I find him strong, handsome, smart and fun to say. He’s truly awesome, in a whole host of ways. Sound, looks, feel, color, even: 

He’s a lovely shade of green, vibrant!   india_k-lakshmi-krishna11 After toying with Barnaby in first, I will admit, I’m far more comfortable with him in the middle, I have him in my #2 combo: Cassius Barnaby Rex (I know it’s not something that’s to everyone’s taste) & here, with Malcolm: Malcolm Barnaby Edward. I also have Malcolm in another combo but I don’t like him quite as much: Malcolm Alasdair Rhys. I think it’s got a great sound, overall but he’s a bit too Scottish, even for me in the end.

But Malcolm sounds great with the MacK surname and I must say, his kingly overtones make me happy.   He’s linked to my favorite Shakesperian tale and my favorite Star Trek Bad guy: Malcolm McDowell  (A Clockwork Orange remains a big favorite of mine due to it’s sheer oddness).  I even once got to have lunch with Malcolm Forbes. I used to go to air shows frequently and there was one in NJ (when I was living there), near Readington that I got lucky at. I literally ran into the man and offered my picnic lunch as an apology. He accepted but insisted I join him at it.  What a lovely, warm, friendly man.   I asked Verity to cover him for me back in September.  She did a most admirable job.

So, while I’m besotted, I’d love to hear your thoughts on Malcolm and his combo. You can’t possibly hurt my feelings and I’d welcome any thinks you may have about him!

 

Thanks!
