    Well the firsthe part of my name is self explanatory but the second part of it is my Playstation network user name (G_Munky). Also I love monkeys... or any animal with paws like tiny hands, like raccoons. I like raccoons. My wife... not so much.

    We have 3 kids and 2 Corgis. We LOVE camping in our pop up but sometimes it feels like a zoo in close quarters. Actually, sometimes it feels like a zoo at home too!;)

    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.
