    My wife's name never have heard or seen it in print anywhere. Was suppose to be named after a Native American Princess. A nurse at the Cooper, Texas hospital was the one that named her, that is the story I was told and I'm sticking to it.

    Because I'm from Texas, by God! It seemed fitting as there was talk of taking "under God" out of the pledge at one point - and I like the story of John Wesley Hardin's capture. He was on a train in Florida when the Texas Rangers got on. He recognized them and yelled "Texas, By God!" and tried to draw but his pistol got hung in his suspenders and the lead Ranger conked him in the head and arrested him.
    I love my state. Hot as hell for 3-4 months but like heaven the rest of the year. Except for tornadoes and hurricanes.....

    OldBearHair---- Boys at the NMBoys Ranch named me with that one after the first time I went around to "bedcheck" the first day on the job. The biggest, toughtest kid in the building and a little guy who thought he was tough, jumped me from behind as I was standing in a doorway to their room and began to push me into the room. It was a long hard day and I was pooped to say the least. It seemed for sure that I had help from above as the thought came to me to just help them along as fast as possible. As we went through the doorway the little one banged his head on the side of the door. Us other two went barreling in toward the bed on the far side. With my arms pinned I dove into the bed and jumped as high as possible with 270 lbs on my back. The kid went flying over me and body slammed the wall, then fell off the end landing on his rear in the corner. I asked "let me help you up" and grabbed a headlock just hard enough to let him slip out and reddened his ears quite visibly. We went out of the room and all the boys in the building were peeping to see the outcome . The poor kid was almost in tears and the little guy was OK. Word got out that "pop Barrick was an old bear and don't mess with him." Then it just morphed into OldBearHair.

    I’ve always really liked the 8x57 Mauser. I like reloading for it, shooting both jacketed and cast in it, hunting with it, souping it up with hot reloads, etc. It’s just a great, great cartridge with a lot of history. I’d probably have felt the same way about the ‘06, but I got my 8mm decades before my first ‘06.

    I had a 16' Amesbury Skiff rigged out for lobstering for some 25 years. Lobstering has always been referred to as fishing and I fished Portsmouth Harbor. Lobsters are also called bugs....ergo FISH4BUGS.

    My parents gave me mine. Not ashamed of it. This is the first forum I joined, hadn't learned about "handles", wasn't concerned about security. Elsewhere I am Bill VonSteuben, after my location in Western NY, on that often despised online marketplace my username refers to a previous occupation. I suppose I could appeal to the mods for a change.

    I have had several handles on different websites. Mostly gaming places (Used to do gaming) My favorite nickname was on the now defunct "Combat Arms" game.
    I was Bernie Madoff. After a year or so nobody knew who he was anymore. I kind of liked being called Bernie. hahahahaha. Most places won't let you use the name of a living villain. So I don't even try to use it anymore. Besides not many people would appreciate me if I used it here.

    lost vision in my right eye - NAION is the acronym for the occurrence - went as a spectator to a SASS event & we all decided we needed a "cowboy" name - seem to remember an old western movie named one eyed jacks or maybe it was a card game in the movie don't know but having one eye working it seemed appropriate at the time. still shoot fair enough but have to go lefty with rifles & keep both eyes open when I am shooting.....
