Re: [aroid-l] question about Nancy's revenge


It was my understanding that the name Nancy's Revenge or Nancyana was a
result of a run-in that the originator Jerry Kranz and his friend Nancy had
with a group of garden club ladies down in the Florida Keys. You would have
to talk to Jerry for the complete story.
