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).

Nickname from high school. Jeeks for short. My avatar is my 'Crab Cake Prototype'. I used to have the cranium protected cat, but he and I had a little fall out one day.

I wondered about where the cat went. I understand pet fallouts. Last Sunday, my "Boys" stole my Sourdough as it was on it's last rising. My only consoolation was that they got an upset stomach. I still felt bad for them. My labs are lovable, but, Oh so mischievous.

I guess I'm not that creative- I use Rob because that's my name. And I just dig that animation of the cow.
If we're not supposed to eat animals, then how come they're made out of meat?

Screen name is....my name. Well, nickname I've had since I was a wee one.

My avatar is my baby, Ashley. He's a real momma's boy and loves his nightly before bedtime brushing. His momma was a gray tabby. Daddy? Had to be some Siamese in the gene pool. Ashely has the most beautiful blue eyes. He could be a twin to our now deceased Miss Topaz, who was Himalayan.

Years ago I was signing up on a Mustang site. I entered numerous user names that had already been taken.

I looked at the wall where my Martin Warthog compound bow was hanging. I was tired of trying user names .....

And there are other ... things ... that are called Warthog that aren't completely accurate or inaccurate in reference to me.

I started getting too many questions asking if I were an A-10 vet so I shortened it to Wart. Not completely inaccurate.

Before Wart I used username Fusion but many thought I was referencing music and not a fire ball.

The avitar is the 20 pound cat. Licking chops in a food forum seemed appropriate.
