Thought it might be interesting to see how you arrived with your user name...FRSam stands for Feather River Sam. Feather River Sam was my first golden retriever, she's no longer with us bless her heart, but I used this name on my fly fishing forums and it's kinda just stayed with me. I have a real soft spot for golden retrievers. My current boy, Woody, is a rescued golden with a heart as big as the moon.

Mine is very simple, a short cut for my name, Mary. Like you, I've been known to use my fur baby's names, Maggie, Molly, and even Barney's Mom! They're just ingrained inside of us!!

Used to be a bounty hunter for my brother's bail bonds service in the '90s. Lost an eye doing that and got tired of being part of other people's misery. Any new forums I sign up for I usually go by OneEye with this as my avatar...

I like to play video games and have used Daytona as my gamer name for years. I always imagined it as a tough girl sounding name.

Years ago I was setting up my first computer on AOL and my husband suggested it to me as I was Pat and an artist in watercolor.

Nothing clever or inventive, first initial and last name. Didn't even follow the rules set forth on Dragnet- the names were changed to protect the innocent.
