Your user name..
My avatar pic is of "water steps" in a park in Montreal.
I always wondered what your avatar picture was. Being so small, it always looked like a street curb in the rain!
At most sites I go by Barbarian57, at my sweepstakes site I am "Already a Winner" (because I have already won James's heart), and at a writing message board I am Hannah Andrews (my grandkids are Andrew and Hannah). I decided to keep it plain and simple (and avoid everyone assuming I am a guy, which is what a lot of people assume of someone named Barbarian57--you'd be amazed how many "male enhancement" and "would you like to date a hot girl" emails I get!) by using my first name and last initial.
My avatar is my (now passed on) cat Annette (I had dropped my tape measure on her, and she just sat there with it draped over her, looking adorable).
