I'm with you, Jim. Mind you I have no problem with others using a handle if it comes easy to them. I'm just too lazy, (or not smart enough) to come up with one that I won't forget. After nearly sixty years I've kinda gotten used to the name my parents gave me, and I'm comfy with it.


(Actually, the called me David, so I guess I have a sorta handle anyway)

Well, I'll tell ya.....

It's a long story, but the shortened version is that it is a case of plagerism (or sincere imitation) gone bad, and shortened by my buddies. It stuck, and I've been called worse, so.......

I used to sign my signature Wayne B. Then someone thought I was Wayne Bransfield - which I am not!!!!
I trust that everyone can tell from my frequently changing tagline, that I am a victim of a warped sense of humour....I think it is my Dad's fault, but he would never admit to it.....

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

Same reason as Dave: my mom gave it to me 65yrs ago, kinda stuck. Also, I find that there are too many people out there that hide behind a handle so that if you want to hunt 'em down for some of their haywire postings, it ain't as easy . Which is also why I say where I am: if you want to discuss modelling attitudes, good or bad, come right in, I always have time .
