Yep, as soon as school was out for the summer, we went to Sprouse Ritz (sp?) and I would buy a bunch of Nancy comic books to read on my stomach on a towel in the grass. I loved that it was named for me! And Sluggo was one of my favorite characters. I also have a dog named Little Lulu--I didn't realize how influential comics have been in my life! Maybe I should do my hair like Nancy's....
Thanks for reminding all of us Nancy-Boomers!

Nancy B: Yes, "Nancy" is certainly a Boomer marker. Type NANCY into the Baby Name Wizard (http://babynamewizard.com/namevoyager/lnv0105.html) and marvel at that steep 1940s-1950s peak. We were the Tiffanys and Madisons of our generation. A few years ago, I met a 10-year-old girl named Nancy and told her mother how unusual the name is now. "Oh, it's her nickname," the mother said. "We use it because her grandmother can't pronounce her real name." And what was her real name? "Anunciada," said the mother. Oh.
