    Just a way for all of us to get to know each other a little better.

    My friend Mary, (you all know her as Hotwings) found this site and wanted to use the name Henrietta. of course that was taken. So, I told her to try Freebie, (thats the name of one of my barn cats) She did not like that name, So I told her to use Hotwings(that is the name of my other barn cat) So she did, and when I signed up I used Freebie, because I think that name is so cool.

    So whats the story behind your name?
    (Sorry Hotwings, I guess I told your story too)

    Honestly I'm just a big, patchworked, barefoot, long haired bandana-wearing hippie girl. (tee hee)
    Also I'm a cheeseball, my husband and I call each other "Mama and Papa" like we are Little House on the Prairie characters or something.

    Whenever we have to use usernames for stuff I am tribalmoongoddess or plain moongoddess and he is tribalsungod.

    As I said....cheeseballs.

    Feel free to hurl now.

    My real name is Jennifer. You can call me that...or Jenn...or moonie. Whateva. But as my grandpa always said, "Just don't call me late for dinner!"

    Picco is what I call my rooster Piccolino... it means tiny in Italian. He was shown at a show as a pullet by his previous owner but later "turned" into a roo. I originally wanted a banty hen to name Piccolina, but I had to drop the a and add an o when "she" started to crow [​IMG]

    Great fun reading all these..my name came from my banty hen Maggie who I used to call Maggie P.I. after Magnum P.I. She was the light of my life and it is my tribute to her delightfulness. My name is Suzanna or Suz or Suzy - as above - just don't call me late for dinner! :)

    Love this thread! Great Idea!

    Well.. my name is probably pretty obvious to... and helped by the fact that I'm only 5' tall... have 2 kids, and lots of 4 footed 'kids' here.
    Dh is the only one who could be Gulliver (he's 6'2")!! I had to wear 5" heels to our wedding so our heights wouldn't be quite so different.
