40 years ago helping my Dad on his construction jobs he would send me out to the truck for tools. He got in the habit of calling me Speedball when I made a quick trip back.

My username is the one I created when I joined my very first chatroom- it was a dirt bike rider club. So rather than have a new username for each and every forum, I use the same one.

Dirt Bike For Ever......

I've always liked squirrels, chipmunks and other rodents. They're cute and fluffy and are fun companions around the camp. Used to tame them when I camped a lot (now I work so I hardly camp). I also have red hair, so figured Red Squirrel was appropriate. I use this on pretty much all forums I frequent, and even MMO game characters. I usually go Red Squirrel for my main char, Black Squirrel for a necromancer and Albino Squirrel for a paladin. :p

I wrote a paper back in school about data encryption. "Skipjack" is the name for an algorithm that was used by the NSA back in the 80's.. IIRC.

I was doing a lot of online gaming at the time and it was a nice 8 letter word that sounded kind of cool... so I started using it and it just stuck. I'm a nerd.. I can't help it.

Turns out it's also the name of a type of sail boat ... and a type of tuna.

Nothing real exciting......but it is some what odd.
My husband and I bought a few acres in MT and wanted to raise sheep.
I was told that I was crazy........Don't you know this is no longer sheep country lady, It is horse and cows you need to be raising.... HAR HAR...
So we set off to get 10 ewes and 1 ram....Suffolk that is. We had in past years read one of John Murrs books where we referred to them as 'hooved locust".(I don't really think the man liked sheep hahahah)
My husband and I were out in the pasture admiring our little flock when almost at the same time we said Woolly Locust and had a good laugh. It has been Woolly Locust Farm ever since.

Sparky is self-explanitory, being in the electrical business and occasionally creating a pyrotechnic display of sparks flying about ....
The "Spark" part is the same as in Sparky. The (Inadvertent) pyrotechnics display that kept on and on when I pulled a bad receptacle from the wall that was "Protected" by a you-know-what manufacture breaker! (No matter what) Don't Drink and Drive!!! (We've got to give the smilies a break)!!!
