Mine is an abréviation from my original username on RWOL BackinShape. Because back then I actually was. In shape after being pretty big

Today it should be OOS because I am big again, but I am working on it. Embarassed

Yours?

I live near Nazareth, PA, home of the Andretti racing family. The combination trips nicely off the tongue.

Among my favorite books while growing up was a boys' series written from the late 1920's to 1941, the Jerry Todd books by Leo Edwards. When I joined RWOL I was going to use 'Jerry Todd' as my user name, but I first did a little check online and discovered that that is a not uncommon name. So I went with a second series Edwards wrote, the Poppy Ott books. The cover of 'Poppy Ott Hits the Trail' was my avatar until, i think, last Fall.

"Spunky" describes my personality and "bubbles5" stands for my 5 kids who are growing up and will someday "fly" away from home. I had been using this username for about 6 months all over social media, games, for my email, etc. Well I started getting some extremely crude, graphic sexual messages from all these guys on one of the games I used to play. I just thought wow, these guys on here are hurting for some action. Finally I asked one of them what the deal was. That's when he told me that in the UK that name meant a completely different thing!! I thought about changing it but it would have been too much hassle since I used it everywhere. Plus the true meaning for me is so special. I figure who cares what the UK guys think. I know what it means so that's all that matters. Smile

Birdwell Beach Britches was the name brand of the bathing suit/board shorts I wore on swim team and as a lifeguard.

I've been using this user name since the mid 90's. I'm a creature of habit.

I was setting up my account and the Rolling Stones song Honky Tonk Woman happened to be playing.
The rest is history.........

When I was a cyclist (before running) the guys at the local bike shop nicknamed me this.

It works because it is the phonetic spelling of my real name - along with Girl, because:
a) Burl could be male or female
b) It rhymes!

When I was doing inspections on construction sites one of the foremen had asked me how I was doing and I replied "Just Peachy" - and after that he started to refer to me as Peachy. So, when I first joined RWOL in 2006 I couldn't think of anything better.

No, I'm a civil engineer for a local government, and I was inspecting one of our road/sewer/watermain projects.

Ah, I'm a semi-retired construction superintendent so I am used to working with civil engineers.

Mr. Bird was my original username on RWOL, but I had to change to Sir Bird after having been banned too many times.

My nickname as I child was jaybird. As I became a dad, I morphed jaybird into Mr. Bird.
