        I always got a kick out of his screen name! It brings to mind an image. He ever tell anyone how it came about? He's was showing up less as I was just coming on. But I was here for quite a few of his post and enjoyed them.

        Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

        It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

            Here is a little info. He explains the origin thoroughly in another thread that I didn't find.

              Actually, there was a thread quite a while back where many contibutors explained the reason and origin of their "screen name". I remember Dave telling of being a traveling worker for the IBEW (Intl Brotherhood of Electrical Workers ?) hence his old name of Ibewgypsie. Others were workplace nicknames and some were familial.

                Joel posted exactly what I was thinking of while I was composing my response and taking a phone call. Way to go Joel, thanks for the link.
