    How did you come up with your Screen name.

    Okay, some screen names are pretty obvious, but there are those that make ya wonder, for me anyway.

    So, here's mine. I came up with mine while playin online poker. I got so tired of having the winning hand on the flop only to be beat out on the river. Hence, you "gottabkiddn" me! The Avatar was one I used for the my membership at that site too. Plus I think the majestic Bald Eagle is a excellent symbol of grace and power.

    I am retired Air Force, last position held was that of First Sergeant, which authorizes me to wear the Diamond for life. That's my story and stickin to it!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Proud alumni of The Ohio State University, and currently serving as an AD USMC Lance Corporal, so yeah.

    As far as my avatar, I'm an 0311 infantryman, so yeah, major league infidel, don't think it really needs explained either.

    They are part of the chestnut group I guess, don't know so much about them being pretty much gone, I think there is still a fair number of the trees around. Ohio would have to change a whole lot of stuff if they went away from the Buckeye, besides, there is history to it being the Buckeye state.

    Sorry, and now back to the discussion of how people came up with screen names...

    My brother once referred to me as Cujo's keeper (my first rottie) and I changed it to rottkeeper now that Cujo has passed and I have Max the middle dog in my avatar. I love all dogs but my heart goes to the rotties.

    Pikachu is the name of my 14 pound male black cat. I chose 711 because it is the convenience store down the street.

    President Arkansas Chapter Dodgetruckworld.com. The site used to be way better than it is today. I'm a Dodge Ram fan, and I drive one every day. The Rod part....well, you can use your imagination here, or you might know that one of my former neighbors used to call me 'hot rod'. I guess that's what I do best in my Dodge Ram.

    I know what cha mean, I got my little rattie from the SPCA 3 years ago. She was abused and it took a while to bring here back from being frightened all the time and trusting man again. Now she runs the house and my wife and I love her to death...... She's a member of the family.

    I haven't seen one of those in years, that or the old Magic Markets. 14 lbs, he's a chunk.

    Easy - I learned to shoot with a 1911A1 .45 ACP and have carried a .45 ACP in one style or another since 1969.
