    Somehow over the years I have missed this forum. It was a great review of participants old, new and gone. It left me wondering where some of those wonderful personalities are.

    My name is my own. I am the third generation of women (and last since I had a son) with the same name. Often wondered if the family simply had no imagination for names :D

    My name is Carrie and my middle name is Ann. So I thought Id shorten my first name Carrie to Cari and have CariAnn88. The 88 is the year I was born.

    My initials . To keep from forgetting,
    I am very imaginative and love words and phrases.
    So I would undoubtedly forget. So, i keep it simple. My husband always tells people he is 25, so I must remain younger. That means i am 24. (I am really 61).

    I'm willing to try growing about any plant in the garden. As a result, there are flowers, vegetables, herbs and fruit all hanging out together. I have potted plants scattered about and even the chicken pen is on the garden's edge. In home decorating that is called eclectic style. I simply applied the term to my garden because I think it fits rather nicely.

    My user name is 14 years old. I am the only one who has/uses it. It is the best name ever because I made it up on a whim after drawing a lion and naming him Shawchert. I just can't leave that name identity *even though it does sound male and i'm female* it just makes me feel like i'm lying to people if I try to get a different name. :O

    My name is pretty descriptive as, since our children are all grown, there's just 2ofus left at home.

    To be Frank...... sorry, frank... almost like Frank.... but not exactly... I just put what people call me, short of 'Dinakar' - with a soft 'D'. Don't drag the 'a's.

    Gardening, while fun and entertaining, can be a pain if things don't grow as anticipated, thus,
    growingpains.

    I drove a tug boat for a living so folks just naturally call me cappy its sorta my nick name and the on line name I use the most. Since it was already used here I stuck Cajun in front cause I am that too it was actually like my third or fourth choice.
