I are "Old Man" because I am one. It was put up because everyone kept saying hey old man. So just to make things simple I stuck with it.But I sign off with what I'm really called.

"cause my dad's side of the family was directly related to Hannah Dustin, statue in Haverhill Mass...."

That is freekin' wacky. I am also related to Hannah Dustin (on my dad's side). I am going to have to find out exactly what the realationship is.

As for my handle, I try to use it on every board I post on. By removeing some of the anominity, it reminds me not to post something I might regret.

Yup, ... right on, ... same reason I use the same login for all the boards I haunt.

Gunner

I spent 25 years in the Marine Corps, 6 active, 19 reserves. I was a Chief Warrant Officer 4 and the Marines generally refer to Warrant Officers as "Gunner" because originally Warrant Officers were gunnery (artillery) officers. Now there are WO's in virtually every specialty. After years of being called Gunner, it was an easy log in and I use it on every forum I post in.

Skilly

A family nick name that anyone with my last name will reply to. Of course 99.44% of them are related to me.
I am also sure their are still some on the Isle of Mann that will reply to it. Though my family left in the late 1800. I have used it for my sign in name since my first PC. My current abode is the PNW rivers.

Moose is actually short for Mooseburger, a nickname I got years ago, and now my buddies just call me Moose. I believe the statute of limitations has run out so I'll confess the whole sordid tale.
I got the nickname because 2 buddies and I were hunting on a private ranch very near a fenceline that divided the ranch we were allowed to hunt on from a ranch we were not allowed to hunt on. We were working our way through some scrub oak when a small buck pops up out of the brush, making a beeline for the fence. One of my buddies shoots the deer right as it is jumping the fence (the question of which side of the fence the buck was actually on still is a matter of discussion, but the shooter claims it was in mid flight and he took it sportingly on the wing) and of course the deer expires on the opposite side of the barbedwire fence. We run over to the fence, staring across it at this dead buck, and as both of my buddies stand there discussing the various options (and wasting precious time) I hop the fence, grab the buck by it's meager antlers, snatch it up onto my back like a sack of potatoes, and flop it over the fence onto the legal side of the property line, breaking off an antler in the process. The shooter looks at me horrified and exclaims "You damned clumsy moose, you just hamburgered my deer!" My other buddy, laughing his ass off, replies "Looks like he Mooseburgered it to me", and the name stuck.

Mine is pretty simple if you've ever hired a Bahamian guide. The whole reason you travel to all these exotic "shallow water" destinations is to hear the phrase
" Bonefish Mon! 12 o'clock! 60 feet out! Cast now Mon!" Music to my ears and I'm pretty deaf, so they have to yell it loud. Gave Bonefish Bradley on Andros a headache. It was a great day on Fresh Creek. He spotted fish more often than usual! "Pick up, cast again!!!" just added to the pain. God, those Andros 30 knot winds! Makes it even harder to hear the guide.

My surname is the "Mc..." variety, and the Nooksack River is my local anadromous fish stream. Anyway, nobody else was using it.
