    We have 1 daughter and 2 little dogs... a chihuahua and a Maltese and a whole mess of fish so it literally is a zoo sometimes. Especially when the daughter's friends come over.

    Greetings all. My screen name, Mausinn, is a combination of the first part of my first and last names. I use it on most forums I visit. Generally, if you see the name on a forum, it's me.

    Hi All,
    My handle (nick name) was given to me by the Police Jury in Lake Charles, LA. A bunch of us were sent by our work to Louisiana from California, Louisiana being where my dad was born and raised. Anyway I became involved in city and school policies standing up for the underdog changing policies. Someone starting calling me Calicajun and name stuck, soon most everybody was calling me Calicajun.

    Hello,
    I created this screen name because I (the wife) am from Tx and he (hubby) is from Tn. 07 because that is when we met and became a couple.

    Our last name is Bird. Home is affectionately called The Birds' Nest. The pop-up is the mobile (or migratory) Birds' Nest.

    Ok this is convoluted, so stick with me.

    Way back when the internet was new, I logged on to a message board and picked the user name Animal because I am a fan of the drummer of the Muppets by the same name. To my chagrin, it was already claimed, so in my cleverness, I substituted 2 "E"s for the "I" and it became Aneemal. That worked until I went for my first yahoo email address and someone not only as clever as I but faster had already taken that name; so since I was 33 at the time I tacked that on and voila - Aneemal33.

    Now... wasn't that worth the journey? [LOL]

    Several years ago I was working hard to pay bills and wasn't able to get out much. I felt like I needed to get out and knock the dust off. Hence the name Getndusty

    Decades ago when I joined my first bulletin board (VW diesels) I misread "user name" as "Use yer name!", so I did.
    Years later when some pretense of anononymity was desired I mulled over several possible pseudonyms. Another diesel board member who knew my driving habits said I was nuts for "lugging" my engine and that was that: Lug Nut. Except the user name couldn't have gaps or spaces. One 'underscore' later and that was that.
    I've been using Lug_Nut everywhere else, too.

    Back when I was a teenager, I only drank Pepsi. I collected everything and anything that had the Pepsi logo on it, and even got a tattoo. All of my friends called me Pepsi, and some still do, almost 30 years later. The 49801 is the zip code of where I grew up. Designated the user name way back when with my first email address in 1998, still use that same account to this day.

    Pretty simple and straight forward. Sneed is our family last name, and we are a family of 5. My wife and I have three children that we homeschool. We are the process of finding the right sized, and within our budget, pop-up camper for our first. We kayak fish and intend to use it as a our multipurpose trailer for when we take it out to state parks and other RV spots to set up and fish.

    Mine is very simple and one I've used on almost every forum and message board I've been involved with: a simple merge of my first name and the the first letters of my last name. The avatar is homage to my (limited) training in Yang Family style Tai Chi.
