HOW DID YOU GET YOUR NICKNAME FOR IS?!?
« on: Jan 12, 2016, 07:39 PM »
 I have not been on in a long time and good to be back.
Almost 30 years ago I drove truck, and being Italian, all the guys started calling me "Pastaboy" and it stuck.
I think it all started with my wife being Italian and she was always making all kinds of pasta dishes for my work lunches.
They would always tease me about the AMOUNT of food, and it was all Italian dishes, that my wife would send to work with me.
So now you know the legend of the "Pastaboy"........

Long time Varmint/Fur Hunter and my preferred weapons of choice are my 220"SWIFTS".  How much wood, could a woodchuck chuck, if I don't shoot it first? 'yotes and Crows aren't fond of them either. My name used on other sites was gone here.

Whenever my girlfriend and son go out ice fishing with me it's quite the task getting me to leave sometimes. I always tell them just one more fish and we can go. Three fish later we might leave  ;D.

I got mine just because I just love all things in Michigan's great outdoors. I was surprised no one had taken it until I came onto the scene.
I'd rather be fishing!

Yoopergirl?  Kinda speaks for itself.  Don't know what a Yooper is?  Was added to Webster's Dictionary, look it up! Girl sounded better than woman!!  Although I am in my 40s now!!  @)

Btw, how come no one puts their ages on IS?  Is it really that much of a secret?!?

I grew up on Houghton Lake ice fishing as a kid. After the U of M I went away for many years working in the tropics. Came back to Michigan and discovered how much I had missed ice fishing all those years. I don't go out on the big lakes, but we've got so many little lakes to explore that I'm more than happy. As long as we get safe ice...

Only a screen name, if you call me I won't come runnin'
But don't quote me on that. I have a drinking problem, I keep running out of beer. I've always been a little bit crazy, but its kept me from going insane.

I have always had an Oldsmobile to drive since my first car. It was a 1950 I got after hi-school graduation. I have a 1966 Cutlass hibernating in the barn waiting for spring. The last olds I ever bought, so through association, I have been called olds. I just added the Pa to olds to let people know what state I live in. Besides, a 3 letter handle is easy for an oldster to remember.  What with falling gas prices, maybe I can afford to drive it this year. Yoopergirl, for the record, I am nearly 73, so don't feel bad... ;)...olds

Two fold. Fishin is what it's all about for me. The spelling of anglure is a play on my favorite way to fish . I like getting them on lures no matter the season. My userename is also my license plate.      BTW. Hey Yoopergirl, You're not the only one who has asked that question about the age thing.... LOL    Tugs and tight lines all !

I'm not very inventive, just my initials and address. Easy for me to remember. I used to be called turtleman but didn't want to be confused with the hill rat on TV. Also Deuce Coupe but that's a different hobby.

I spent 21 years in the Navy, and had some broken service also, so I was not that young when I retired. Therefore, OldSailor. And Mindy, I'm not worried about posting my age!! It's 71 !!
My two favorite college football teams are Ohio State and whoever's playing Michigan!!!

Don't reel against the drag!!!

CP is the initials of my home town where I grew up. It used to be Cp_Sharp_Shooter because I could shoot the nuts off a squirrel at 300 yards before I lost 3 fingers in a log splitting accident, so I shortened it.
I caught a fish once!
