    Default Screen Name

    Someone asked me how I got my screen name.

    Madam Polo was a yellow lab I once had. I almost always name my puppies Madam or Master. My horse-loving daughter played Polo in college, and the team held a silent auction to raise money. In that auction was a little lab puppy, and I got her. She was possibly the best dog I have ever had. She did put a big scratch on me, and it scarred. I said I had the mark of Madam Polo, so I use it as my screen name.

    How did you chose yours?

    I've played guitar since I was 12 years old, and have been playing in church since I was 28. For many years, I've used the screen name "guitarmom," but more and more frequently I'd find that screen name had already been taken. Then, last year, we became grandparents, so I tried "GuitarGramma." I'm loving the alliteration, and it's much more successful at being unused. I also consider it an upgrade!

    I'm looking forward to hearing the background on the wonderfully creative names on these forums.

    My late husband was over 6' tall and heavy, he was a big boy....so he always called me his lilmouse....hence the name, because at the time I was 5'2" and maybe 100 lbs....that isn't my weight anymore, he put 20 pounds on me easy...and then some over the years!

    Rochelle is obviously my name, my middle name and maiden name both start with a J. I thought RochelleJ was too boring, so I added a few letters!

    This has been around before - so I have to truly fess up. My given name is Irma Schmirkledorpher and since it is so difficult to spell and remember, I decided to sign in using an easy to remember name. And, since Annabelle was already taken . . .

    Many years ago when time began and the internet first became accessible in home, I bought a computer...Back in the AOL days Remember the screeching sound and the words "you've got mail". I digress sorry...as I was sign up for AOL I had to pick a screen name. I am a nurse by trade and was ready for work, I was having some issue with a clever name soooo...yes there is an end to this story. I looked down and the shoes I was wearing were made by a company called Nursmate. So through all these years it has been my go to screen name.
