Wonder how many of us there are? and what were our parents thinking? Noni, nope, not traumatized but perhaps that is why my kids have less common names.

No picture - too shy - I'll wait until TV for that. Handle is part of last name and part of first name.

Great stories!!! We could write a book. You all make me think I'm a bore. I might start Club Boring. All those with no pictures & real names please sign up now. I'd preside and call for a meeting but don't think we'd have anything to discuss. LOL to all. Dear god get me life in TV. I need to change my ways.

My avatar isn't tough to guess - I LOVE golf! That's why I'm choosing TV. I've used my real pic a few times but I change it to a golf pic most of the time.

The handle is obvious also - I live near Boston and love the city. I have that handle on almost every site on the Internet so if you are playing on-line poker or the like and see the name Russ_Boston, it is probably me!

I just discovered this fun-topic so I'm BUMPING it up for the newbies.

I was born in Coney Island, Brooklyn NY and that's why I chose my handle. I change my photo every day or so, cuz it's boring to keep looking at the same one ;D

pm10 - ours is for Paul and Marcia - and when we originally saw TV and decided to make it our future home, we were planning on the move for 2010. Happily we have now decided to make TV our home in 2009! Hoooooray!!!!

Describes my personality,
kinda sweet (to some at least), a little spicy, sometimes too strong, and very southern.

But wish I could be a margarita....

Just re-found this thread.

Peggy (no explation needed there--although I actually am a "Margaret") "Peggy" was already taken.

D is for the last name--a long Italian last name. Hubby of 40 yr is Italian.

I tell everyone I married him for his pretty eyes and his mothers' good cooking!

mm (initials) clover name of my female shepherd in background of picture. I changed picture from Pedro my (Amazon) parrot. Will probably change the picture from time to time, but not the name. Nothing real exciting just easy to remember.

This thread is good for a few giggles now that some you posted new pictures. Redwitch, Donna, Brightspot01, Barb1192, Nonie, Ouma1938 and The Great Fumar go back and look at your posts from Jan. They made laugh.

My TOTV name is one I used to use on NTN trivia and is courtesy of one of my nieces and her friends. About 20 -25 years ago, I used to return to KC periodically to visit family. At a pub one evening, one of my nieces introduced me to her friends as "This is my uncle Bill." (She said it rather rapidly, running the words together.) Well, one of the rather cute young girls started calling me Muncle Bill. Hey, when you're a 40 year old bachelor and some good looking 25 year old girl calls you anything, you respond. Unfortunately, the name stuck among some of the girls. I was back recently for a funeral and a rather fashionable middle-aged woman walked up, hugged me, and said "Hey Muncle!"

About the avatar/picture: I can't see it from here so I don't know which one it is. Probably has no significance whatsoever, and will likely be changed in a short while.

It's unfortunate that the avatars do change in old posts whenever you update your profile. Kinda makes posts like Red's earlier one seem a bit strange. Here's the picture of the blushing bride and her comment that her pic shows her with her daughter. :yikes:
