His given name is Ian Christian Marsh.
He is my dear eldest son.
But early on in his unique and amazing journey, he inadvertently received another name.
When Ian was a wee lad, we bought him some little blue jeans. And we noticed that the ones that fit him the best were the 'slim' cut.
So, once we got the jeans and were heading out of the store, i simply called out to him, 'C'mon, let's go, Slim Jim.'
And a 'legend' was born.
