Two more morning names

Thursday’s memorable morning name was Mitzi Kapture (the actress), Friday’s was Piggly Wiggly (the supermarket).

Mitzi Kapture. From Wikipedia:

Mitzi Gaynor Donahue (born May 2, 1962, Yorba Linda, California) is an American actress, also credited and more popularly known as Mitzi Kapture.

Kapture began her career in films before becoming an international television star. She gained international exposure with her first major television series regular role as Sergeant Rita Lee Lance in the television series Silk Stalkings. Silk Stalkings premiered on CBS and USA but later moved solely to USA Network. “Silk” aired for 8 seasons and became USA network’s highest rated original drama series…  [She was paired] with Rob Estes who played Sergeant Chris Lorenzo

On Estes, from Wikipedia:

Estes is definitely a hunk, but I haven’t found any good photos on-line that show off his body. But then this posting is about Kapture, not him.

Piggly Wiggly. From Wikipedia:

Piggly Wiggly is a supermarket chain operating in the Midwestern and Southern regions of the United States, run by Piggly Wiggly, LLC, an affiliate of C&S Wholesale Grocers. Its first outlet opened in 1916 in Memphis, Tennessee, which is notable for having been the first true self-service grocery store, and the originator of various familiar supermarket features such as checkout stands, individual item price marking and shopping carts. The current company headquarters is in Keene, New Hampshire. Currently, more than 600 independently owned Piggly Wiggly stores operate in 17 states, primarily in smaller cities and towns.

But where does the name come from? From the company’s own site:

[Founder Clarence] Saunders’ reason for choosing the intriguing name “Piggly Wiggly®” remains a mystery; he was curiously reluctant to explain its origin. One story says that, while riding a train, he looked out his window and saw several little pigs struggling to get under a fence, which prompted him to think of the rhyme. Someone once asked him why he had chosen such an unusual name for his organization, to which he replied, “So people will ask that very question.” Regardless of his inspiration, he succeeded in finding a name that would be talked about and remembered.
