    My screen name use to be after my Toy poodle. When she died I had it shortened from her name, Jingleberry to just Jingle. Made me sad to see her name. I had it changed in Dec. 2010. My other toy poodle was named Mistyblue.

    When our first grandchild started to talk, she called me Gammy, which turned into Grammy when she got a little older. It has stuck with the other four that followed. Now Gram or Grammy is what my husband, kids, nieces, grand nephews and even some of my friends call me.

    When I was little I wasn't so good at the d's and g's either. I'm 24 and still call my grandparents Doma and Dompa, even in public

    My friends husband started calling me materialgrl. Fabric when I was growing up was material, so I got the name because I started collecting material. I love it.

    Hoprig is the name of the old Scottish settlement 1/2 mile to the west. It was once one of the largest producing butter creameries in the state. The original settlers thought the railroad was going to come through here, but one railroad went 5 miles east and one went 7 miles west along the river. So Hoprig went by the way side. I used mom because all my son's friends know they can give me a call if they need a ride or get a rip sewed up or something else. I taught Family and Consumer science and high school special ed. I was the champion of all the students who needed extra help. Retired now and dog mother to 3 rescue dogs, a black lab, a walker coonhound and a toy mixed breed. I still help farm and I try to quilt.

    I had a small craft shop in a craft shop. It was like a little 6x6' closet. I helped the owner of the little 1 bedroom house turned shop. My "closet" was called "Aunt Tessa's Treasure Closet". I had hat stands for different events and took orders. It was fun and kept me busy as if I wasn't busy enough. Worked in a salon with 3 Theresa. Had to decide how to differentiate. Since I was last hire in, I went with Tessa but we had 3 clients who were variations of the same. So I went with Tessagain. Went to use it as a user name but on couple email sites, Tessagain was taken so I dropped the upper case and came up with tessagin. it is a user on a couple other business sites. DH when he helps with setting up site profiles, he automatically asks, "tessagin?". Yep! oh and my grandmothers used to call me Tessy because Terry was a boy's name.

    My QB name is after two of my kitties, Patches and Posey. THEY were named because two of my favorite things are patchwork and flowers.
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    My husband of almost 45 years has always called me bug-short for lovebug. After the kids were grown and I started sewing and quilting all the time he started calling me his little sewnbug. Much better than his little sew and sew he calls me sometimes. lol

    I have had several bassets over the years and hope to at least have a few more in my life. Basset hounds have slaves-they do NOT have owners. I am blonde albeit getting a bit grayer-hence the name blondeslave.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    My name

    I will start: My name is "littlebitoheaven". Being seniors, my husband and I decided to build (literally build) a new home on land in Wisconsin that has been in my husband's family for over 100 years. It took us six years to complete. We did hire the foundation; the dry wall and the roof to be contracted out. The rest we did ourselves. I especially loved putting in the wood floors. When we finished the house, I said that it should be called a "littlebitoheaven" as it is in a wooded area overlooking a small river. We love the serenity and the scenery and feel so blessed to have this home.
    My name is the combination of my initials and since I am Scottish it just seemed to fit!

    My son's nickname is Dirty Bob. He is a mechanic and is very seldom if ever clean. Many years ago when we set up our emails he set his up as dirtybob and I was going to use dirtybobsmom, but it was taken. The only thing close was dirty1mom.

    I have been doing Boxer Rescue for over 25 years - so my initials JRH - Boxers is our breed - and I usually have 2 of my own. I have found that this username is usually good everywhere whether they need lettercare (upper and lower) and numbers. Seemed simple to me. It is even my License Plate.
