PLANTLOVER????

I'll never keep these changes straight. Popcorn, Plantlover -- both begin with "P," -- maybe I have to create a system to remember.

MN2CO - Umbria -- nope, no connection -- one has bad winters, one doesn't but I can't connect it with the names....hmmmm

Latashia, Newenglandgirl....again, can't see the connection (I know the reason, only because I happened to be on soon after she changed it, otherwise, I'd be lost!).

Oh, dear. Okay, who's next??? I like my name, so I'll keep it. My stalkers know my posts, anyway, so it wouldn't do any good to change, regardless -- ha ha!

Oh, boy, well, looks like I need to check in every day, if possible, just to make sure everyone is here -- or if they've moved onto new names!

I hope I was right?? Plantlover = Popcorn247?? Why 247? Numbers on names always make me wonder why people choose them.

I'll keep checking in. Maybe that's what happened to some of the others -- they changed their names and identities.....you never know.....

I am getting confused as well and this is on top of my usual confused self.

I've already forgotten who is who; or is it whom is whom or who is whom or, or, or. To think there was a time before my seizures, my grammar or is it grammer, was close to, well um kinda, sorta, perfect. Those days are long gone. Well at least I'm still able to comprehend the language in its various forms. Just speak it very slowwwwwwly and into my good ear.

It's called humor for those that don't know in case some from other threads chance in here.

I am sorry, I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to explain. I guess it is safe to discuss name changes in this thread... Ya have to be careful what you say in some places - you'll get slapped if you dare change the subject. I decided to change my name to popcorn247 because I love popcorn and could eat it 24/7. I was plantlover and will place this under my name for a while. I am leaving a week from tomorrow with a friend (female) who is driving to Montana. I will certainly be scanning the areas we go through for possible second visits for a possible retirement destination. I am tired of the heat, humidity and the other 'h' word (shhhhhh, don't say it!). We will take about a week to get to Red Lodge Montana where her family owns a cabin. I will stay ~ a week longer then fly back to Miami. She spends the month of August in Red Lodge. Last year she took the northern route (Iowa, SD, etc.) with one of our other co-workers. We all work at the same place. Hopefully all will go just fine. She takes her two big labradors, as well. Our route: Louisiana, TX, NM, CO, WY,,,,,,Mt

well, I'm keeping my name if for no other reason than as tribute to now deceased fur babies.

Pop, have a great trip. Be forewarned, that lengthwise trek across TX seems like it will never end. lotta miles!

And Trosa, glad you had a great trip.

It's an amalgaman of the names of 2 dogs and my elderly cat who just died. So, I'll keep it.

My two pups will be in prison for the duration of my trip..... Actually I am boarding them at their vet's office. I feel that this is the best for them and my peace of mind. Thanks for the good wishes. I've never visited TX or NM and the last time I was in WY and MT was in 1959!!! I fell in love with the west at the ripe age of 8! I made a vow then that I would return and I might just stay there... We shall see.
