When I discovered TOTV on line in April 2007, I knew nothing about it nor anyone on it, so I cautiously proceeded to use a forum name that means absolutely nothing. After our first Crispers meeting, Kathie or HB (help - can't remember!!!) christened me with wiwi (wee wee) and that has made it easier to remember! It took less than a day to become a TOTV addict........

Picture - Nothing, it happen to be one of the canned ones I could pick from on the forum and he made me look good!

Name - "Dadspet" I guess it sounds strange on this forum but it's the License plate on my sport car " a 1971 V12 Jaguar XKE Series 3 ". The kids decided to get me a custom plate for it one year since I spent a lot of time playing/cleaning/tinkering with it > it was my pet.

With all the car shows in TVs I kind of wish now I had a 2 car plus golf cart garage so I could bring it down with me. But, actually I wouldn't have much time for her now with all the other TV activities we are involved in. Jags/Pets don't like being ignored - they require attention.

I did bring the plates down and have them on my red Precedent Club Car so if you happen to see me or pass me by (yes its a 19.x mph cart) give me a toot toot!

Mine - NJGranny - describes me. I'm from NJ and I'm a "granny." Also a great granny. I started using that screen name a few years back and just stick with it because it's too hard to remember screen names if you have several. :-)

Picture is me.

What I'm confused about is several people mentioned they had certain pictures up, but what I see isn't what they're describing. I'm not hard to confuse.

Redwitch - especially liked your story. Reminds me of the time one of my granddaughters decided that I was a vampire. It took awhile to convince her that her fears were groundless. :-)

HB - Wiwi has been fun. Wish I had that French fashion sense of style!!!

Both of you - hurry back!!!! wav

BeBack - A little story...

Remember the days of those high pressure sales pitches for timeshares for everything from campsites to condos to cruises? A free meal could bait you through the door. The sales people had a name for those who would show up, eat, listen politely to the spiel for the deal that was good "for today only" and then try to make a gracious exit by saying that they would be back. They called those people the "BeBacks" and knew they would never be back.

I visited TV and I listened and I learned stuff. But I might actually be back some day.
. . .

OK. That is a really old quote. And it is from me. I have just quoted myself. How pathetic is that. It is what I have been driven to doing this afternoon.

Fall is in the air and I have found myself in the grip of some sort of cleaning frenzy here at Boomer Base. So I thought I would sit down at this computer in the kitchen and try to get over it. I have the financial news blaring in the background, and I need to get over that, too.

And I put the old post up there so this one would maybe make a little sense.

So here is what I have decided to think about instead of all that other stuff right now:

I want to lose the BeBack from my screen name. I do not like it anymore. And a couple of things have happened since I signed on last November. First of all, I plan to "be back" to TV. And secondly, as I have come to terms with the vast number of posts I have written here, I realize that the fact that I will "be back" to TOTV goes without saying.

So that whole "BeBack" thing just is not working for me anymore. Silly. I know. But what the heck. It has become way too obvious.

Therefore, I am trying to figure out how to lose the baggage of that last name I no longer like. I want to be just plain Boomer. And I am actually working on an avatar to go with that name. Last November I had not even heard of avatars.

So anyway, I hope to lose the BeBack soon. If I can figure it all out at some point, I will become Boomer, just Boomer, that's it.

I just want to go the route of my fellow boomer, Cherilyn Sarkisian.

Boomer

Default Cherilyn Sarkisian and Me

Oh what a beeeeeeeyoooootiful moorrrrrning,
Oh what a beeeeeeeyoooootiful daaaaaaay,
Got rid of that goofy name "BeBack,"
Everything's going my way.

Well, actually and obviously and, of course, everything is not going my way. But that's the best I could do this morning, could not think of an original rhyme. But hey, little tiny things working right are good, too.

And now, I can just be Boomer. You know. Like Cher.

I wonder if I should go shopping for a new wardrobe to go with this one name thing. Somehow I do not picture my fellow boomer Cher sitting around in her kitchen, wearing flannel, and typing a guzillion posts on some internet site. But maybe she will join us after she retires.

You just never know.

I sure didn't when I showed up here almost a year ago.

You just never know.

Hey, today -- lose the last name. Tomorrow -- a blog?

- -Nope, I don't think so. I still have not figured out the spellcheck download.

But I am working on an avatar.

Boomer, just Boomer
