Been called MIDDO for the past 50 years. A lot of people with surnames starting with MID get called that. Been called a few other things but this one has stuck.

Mine is just a nickname my boss used to call me (he was a pom), back in the late 90's. I was originally just "Flossy" for ages, then when we got another staff member he started calling her Flossy as well, so I became Flossymk1 (mark 1), and she was Flossymk2 - you get the drift lol

I thought I'd put something here but only thought I had..........Drover came about when as a Long Distance Coach Driver I was at a roadhouse trying to get the pax back on the coach and an old fella remarked I was a people Drover, my tongue was like a cattle prod, so it ended up as a Username and some fellas call me that in emails and things, far better than my military nickname......

Mine came from watching the monster yabbies in our dam and my initials. I like it because it unique, so can use it on the internet without others having the same or similar names. It also has a nice Aussie bush feel.

Also some people think I talk too much and I like the irony of the yabbie part of the nickname.:blabla:

Dobbie comes from the last Harry Potter where Dobbie says "Dobbie loves Harry Potter" and our Patrol is called Harry.

So Harry tows and loves Dobbie.

The previous combination was Dame Edna (pajero) and Kenny the camper trailer.

Dame Edna couldn't decide whether it was male or female but was always plagued by his/her son Kenny.

Some years ago I bought a 50cc city commuter scooter - two wheel scooter (twscoot) and my username was born.
Some bikes later it grew.....
Weighing in at close to 250kg, 650cc's and no gears, this one is awesome fun. Feet up. Sports handling. ABS brakes. Storage for two helmets. :)
