    Once upon a time, musta been 'round October, few years back ...........

    I used to frequent a restaurant named the Old Kemah Inn when I was fishing Bluefin tuna full time back in the late 80's
    I would always order the same appetizer, THE Texas BBQ Shrimp, it was spiced just right and the shrimp were cooked perfectly served over a bed of jasmine rice, I once told them to double it and make a dinner of it.
    Another captain I was hanging with at the time called it the Secret Texas Babalu shrimp.

    My drink of choice then (as is now) is a Captain Morgan and Coke.
    He would call those the babaluies and that is how my nickname stuck with me.
    All these years later I still have friends from that era that never use my actual name but refer to me as babalu

    The 87 is my street number that I started using after finding out a few other people use babalu (I love Lucy fans? ) for their screenames.

    A nickname I picked up in college in reference to Caddyshack and the "Dalai Lama" - big hitter, the Dalai. Of course, we were in college and no-one knew how to spell "Dalai" (ironic, huh?) so we all assumed it was "Dali".


    Lima is my last name.

    Peace.

    Ha! DNF. I currently race the enduro circuit and if you are an hour behind the clock you will get a DNF. So far I've never done that and even ridden a flat front tire for 70 miles just to avoid it.

    This is an old thread so I may have already posted but.. my name is not religious or drug related. One of my first motorcycles, I was about 13YO, did not have a headlight and I needed to commute at night on a trail between two homes so we velcroed two flashlights to my helmet and my new name was highbeam.

    Fish and Bonz.

    I love to Fly-Fish and I sell orthopedic trauma implants for a living. The z is just a cool looking way to spell it that pretty much does not get used by others.

    Brushfire - I love Midnight Oil as well. Have all the albums.

    I also enjoy the Missouri Heat.

    Well, I hate to admit it, but I was single a few years back, and traipsin' through the online dating sites.....

    Thought I'd be clever, since my step mother is 100% German, I'd go for some german name, you know.....

    and being the humble man I am, I searched for a good German word to describe me....

    I added the #1 to the end of it, just 'cuz I'm an egotistical idiot, haha

    It means "handsome1" or "goodlooking1"



    German English

    beträchtlich; ansehnlich considerable

    gut aussehend; ansehnlich; stattlich; anmutig; hübsch {adj} handsome; comely

    ein gut aussehender Mann a handsome man

    beachtlich; ansehnlich; respektabel {adj} respectable

    ansehnlich {adj} good-looking

    ansehnlicher better-looking

    am ansehnlichsten best looking

    ansehnlich {adv} respectably

    ansehnlich {adv} personably

    leidlich; ziemlich; ansehnlich {adj} goodish

    stattlich; ansehnlich; schön {adj} goodly

    stattlich; gut aussehend; ansehnlich {adj} personable

    As we are snowed in most years "snowtime" seemed like a good way to let people get a little knowledge of our lives with one word. When we are snowed in we can still get on line with sat. Its just amazing to be cut off and still watch the world go by. We probably have more pairs of skis than most. The snowcat gets a workout in winter but the trucks and tractor just sit and wait on their blocks for spring. The key to our storage is diesel equipment and running them up to operating temps when we have a warm snap. This has worked well for 38 years.

    I work for a contractor and whenever we have jobs that require dropping a few trees I am there loading it in my truck before the tree even hits the ground.

    There are a few of us like that and therefore we were given the name "wood pirates".

    Caber toss is a traditional Scottish highland games event. You get a cut tree roughly 17-20 feet long and 110-140 pounds, you pick it by the skinny end and balance it - run and try to flip it over. It was my favorite and best event when I was competing. Still useful for moving smaller trees out of the woods.

    I started using the internet with the handle "takefive" (classic Dave Brubeck song). Comcast, lovely company that they are, forced me to change it for some odd reason, but I wanted to keep something associated with the number 5. Or, maybe I just like the first beer of a sixpack... edit: probably both.

    My family thinks I'm crazy, they see me chopping it, cutting it, hauling it, smelling it.
    So since 2002 I'm branded "The WoodButcher" I have no happy-medium when its time to hit the pile.....full tilt wood massacre.

    Back before Windows95 came out, I used to frequent the old rec.boats on Dejanews. Besides being an avid boater I also have been diving for almost 30 years. The foto is of a lobsta (named him Herman) I caught diving back in 1982. He was 35" long. Don't know his weight as the scales only went up to 20 lbs. He bottomed them out with me supporting his claws as he didn't fit in the basket.

    I've been looking for his pappy ever since then.

    At one time I was thinking of converting from wood to anthricite, logged onto a coal forum then I found out anthricite doesn't grow on trees...at least here in Michigan. Anyhow, stayed with wood...didn't convert but I kept the handle. How uninteresting is that? :down:

    I got it in highschool when I started reading a fishing discussion board I now moderate on. It used to be Drummer/Fisherman. I was a "band geek" in higschool, playing the drums fella's, no wind insturments here.

    A couple years ago I shortened it D/F, just made more sense :)

    One of the social hazzards of growing up in a small hick town is that half of the boys in a third grade class will have the same first name. The poor teacher renamed each one of us and my new name stuck ever since. 64 was just the year I came along.
