I have been in the carpet business for 24 years. Most of that time I have been the measurement man. 1958 is my birth year - thus Measuredude58.

When I joined I too couldn't think of a username. I had gotten back into motorcycling a few yrs before, so BikerDude was begat. :-)

I unfortunately no longer have a bike, or ride. But, the love of it, and the memories are still alive.
No, the avatar pic is not a selfie; I'm not that good lookin'! LOL


Be Yourself. (Everyone else is taken!)

I have used this username for years on many different e-campfire sites. It's the first initials of me, my wife and kids. Thus, "c" for Craig.

I think Spongebob is a pretty cool avatar for a mushroom site. And he looks happy with his find.

What an interesting read. Thanks guys. In case any of you are curious, my Dad called me chigger when I was little. I hear that chiggers are small, red and annoying. I've managed to outgrow the first two.

Love reading all of the responses!! Thanks for starting the thread, JonDaHighlander!!!

My name is my name...I started on this board way back in the very beginning, so there were very few members and quite a few were using their own names. I just followed suit, being really new to the internet.

My avatar is the logo for a non-profit organization that I am on the Board of Directors. The Sandy Corley Memorial Run is 28 years strong, donating just shy of $2 million to our local cancer center to help in the local fight against this devastating disease. We put on a weekend-long event in June at the Double JJ Resort, with 3 days/nights of rustic camping, national act concerts, auction, scenic ride, beverage tent, bike show, field events, and a veteran's tribute that outshines many that I've seen. (Can you tell I'm proud of the event??) :)

Not one of us can say we haven't been affected by day, I pray we'll have a cure.

(How's that, Jon?)

Blessed beyond measure!

Good Tammy. I've got 2 cousins fighting cancer. One 40 year old has about whipped it thru some grueling treatments. The other 29 years old has it very bad stage 4 everywhere and its in her bones and breaks her collar bone just from sleeping. Thanks for your efforts Tammy
