Hopping into this thread a tad late, but I guess with not having the computer until a little while ago I missed its begining and didn't spot it before today I've been reading through most of the 100+ posts before this one, and I feel like I know many of you a lot better now. I've commented to DH before (about forums in general) that I'm always curious why people pic the names and photos that they do, and why some folks write their user names all in caps.

Personally my user name is a sweet Italian word which roughly translated is the female form of "little one", and is a title that one might say to a little girl. My Italian husband says it to me however, and so it has a very special place in my heart. My current avatar picture is a red rose because roses are my favourite flowere ever and because it reminds me of the red roses in my wedding bouquet ( self confessed total romantic).

I can never think of a witty or funny user name, DH has a few really interesting ones he uses on forums but I am boring! I get called Mrsmac by a lot of kids at school, or they call me Mrs M C so I just use that. I am female too which I guess is obvious!!! I found this thread interesting as i have guessed the sex of quite a few people incorrectly.

Since over a period of time I've posted as both Claire and Roy, well, I'm a woman.

Another interesting thread for any newbies to read and add to if you wish.

That was nice, IC.

I'm just kinda klutzy because I act before I think. I thought Half Baked was fit for a food forum.

My avatar is a 'cheeky' orangutan just because I think they are so cute.

Some of you know the story behind my screen name; after a wonderful wolf I was lucky to have as a friend and protector many years ago. Stay at home Mom/Grammie, married to a truck driver; have 2 daughters, 2 grandsons, 1 granddaughter due in a couple of months. Love to cook, sew, quilt, crochet, read, take care of my critters (most are rescues) along with learning and laughing with everyone here.

Thank you IC for bumping this up! How fun to learn about so many folks.

Mine's pretty obvious. I manage a marina and in the course of time I've had to enforce some rules regarding dogs (and other things). A few dog owners started calling me the Harbor itch. I just cleaned it up for public display.

Right now I'm sitting on my boat surrounded by my 4 Pugs. When I get my avatar up it is me at the helm of our little runabout.

I am looking forward to making lots of friends here!

Sharon

That's pretty funny. I've had dogs my whole life, but it's mind blowing as to how irresponsible and inconsiderate some dog owners can be.

Some people shouldn't be allowed to have animals. We work with Pug rescue (we are no longer allowed to foster - we keep them all) and it amazes me what people will do - and not do. Cleaning up after your critters is only part of it!
