Too Many Troys?

I looked back over the last few years and realized that I have written several very similar "T" introductions, revolving around Time. Time seems to always be forefront in my mind, so it creeps into my posts, but I Thought I would write about something completely different This Time. A fun "T" fact. Because my name is Troy, I am perhaps more aware of this fact than most people, but since I work in a city named Troy, I notice it even more. Did anyone, besides me, know that there are Twenty-Three states in the USA that have a city named Troy? It reminds me of a Dr Seuss poem, named Too Many Daves Does anyone beside me ever see their name on a road sign, and get a little Tickled? Today's Theme is T. What T Thing Tickled you Today?

  1. Good morning T is for Troy! Last week on a walk I spied several turtles so that is what my post for T is about. I won't be linking up, though, as I cannot visit other entries this week while we are busy at our son's home with projects.

  4. Hi Troy, Actually you are the first Troy I have met. Neither have I seen a city named Troy. So you are very interesting and rare!
    Thanks for the introduction!

  5. That is an interesting fact about Troys. There's a small bridge in Mexico named after my grandfather, so I've always thought that was cool. Blessings!

  6. I did not know that that many states have cities named Troy. I am pretty sure that the city I live in is unique since it's named for a tribe of Munsee Indians. However, the spelling for our town is Muncie. We were mentioned in the movie "Encounters of the Third Kind." They mistakenly moved us to border Ohio. lol
