    Hi guys... a great big WELCOME to all those transplants from HCRU! We're happy you're here! :katertater:

    So, what's in a name......how did you come up with yours?
    Well, mine is Mckenny / Jellybean. Yep, it's all the same ME.

    Mckenny...
    I had a white dog that was part Beagle and part Maltese. He looked just like a Maltese (white, long hair, etc.), except for the fact that he was longer like a Beagle and when he barked he sounded like one too. He was 17 when he died.

    Jellybean...
    He is my small parrot called a Quaker Parrot. He is all green with gray on top of his head, and a gray chin and tummy. He is a great talker and extremely intelligent. In fact, he's a better watch dog than my two "couch potato's". When he sounds an alarm they come running and barking...they haven't a clue what they're barking at, but if Jellybean says there something out in the yard, they know he's always right!

    I am a widow and I teach Preschool and have a son who is in the Army's 82nd Airborne, presently stationed in Iraq. I live in Maryland about an hour and a half from Ocean City.

    I also have two cats and a kitten (who I recently rescued)---like I need another animal. Oh, and 26 hermies in a 75 gallon tank and a 55 gallon tropical fish tank. I like animals---can you tell? :chuckle:

    But that's it---no more---no way! Although there was this cute hermie I saw...... :bat:...nah, better behave myself. :chuckle:

    My name is Emma and back in high school/middle school I used to put my middle initial (C) on everything. 350 is an old address I had once upon a time.

    Hey - at least you're on facebook, though, Vicki - now you can say you're not THAT old. I mean, you're on facebook. :) Then again, my dad's on facebook, and he married my mom in 75, so maybe you ARE that old even if you are on facebook...

    This is shocking, but the reason I chose the name is because I get called it often. Don't ask me why.....@ _ @

    OK! I know I probably have one of those interesting names! LOL!

    I am a musician, and a woman/girl. I play a lot with wedding bands, from Frank Sinatra to Rock music, sometimes we even attempt rap! LOL!
    Anyway, I am a trombone player, actually BASS Trombone. There are not a lot of chick trombone muscians out there. :hula:
    PLaying in these bands, a lot of the times, I am the only girl in the band out of a bunch of guys, however, it is very fun besides making the $$$$.

    Anyway, by being the only woman in the band, it would draw a lot of attention to me. THe guys started calling me the "bone chick", hence, the woman that plays the trombone. So, "bonechickchris" has been my name eversince.

    I do get A LOT of weirdness when it comes to my name! LOL! BUt I do not want to say the crazy things people have referred my name to :zipit:

    So, that is my name! I am a musician just incase you thought something else! :chuckle:

    Well on HCRU I had my real name. So, I decided to change it with the move. Sekhmet was a pwerful Egyption Godess :hail: I think of myself as a very strong woman, so it seemed to fit. :katertater:
