I believe the monkey hanging thing is correct, they mistook it for a spy :confused: ....although i dont know the proper tale, maybe someone could elaborate on it?




as i understand it during one of the many wars with the french a ship sank this monkey managed to get ashore and the people of hartlepoole hung it and thought it was a french spy

The Uncle prefix came about in 1981 when our only friend who had a kid added it for the benefit of his son. It's an optional extra but is often used, especially when I'm introduced to people for some reason. Respect I guess :wah:

Yeah...whatever :rolleyes:

I usually use names that have either mouse or Turtle in them, which of course have their meanings alone. But thought since this is a new Forum, never joined one before just to join a discussion board....

Anyway, dreaming of having super hero powers....Raising 3 boys on my own and working 2 jobs... So Wonder Woman came to mind...and the number of boys I have...hence WonderWendy3 (my name is Wendy--duh) and then I think its funny that some of you call me WW3...cause that's how I feel some days that I'm in the middle of WW3!!

"Not today" is something my son says alot.

I'll say "Hayden, are you ready for bed?" or "Hayden, are you ready for your bath?" and he'll say "NOT TODAY!!!" and go running another room.

Well could tell you all I was short (Or being an Aussie I could also be extra tall and get the same name :wah:) but decided to be truthful seeing as I dont know any of you

Midget is the name of the 'heroine in my head' when I used to daydream. She was kind of me - but was also all the things I wished I could be. The daydreams changed but the main charector never did

When I joined my first site a couple of years ago it was the obvious name to choose - and I finally had the chance to BE Her :wah:

Midget was already taken so added the 40 for my age - Yeah I know 40 is a bit old to still have imaginary friends but there you go...

Kept the name for consistency ever since

Scholle pronounced show lee is the name of the railroad boom town that was here where I have lived all my life,, it had a post office ,school, hotel 2 stores and a railraod depot,, by the mid 1930's it was a ghost town with 2 families left in the 'township' and just a 3rd class US post office to serve the surrounding ranches,, my grandpa was the post master and thr post office was in a corner of our living room till 1973 when it was closed down due to grandpa turing 65 and forced to retire,,and the kid is what all the kids raised here are called by everyone not raised here " your one of those Scholle kids are'nt you " i think it's because we are all so sweet and charming ,,, and never break all the rules in the book just cuz one of us learnt to read ,,,,:wah::wah: :D

As I explained in another thread, I like to write poetry and short stories.

To kill 2 birds with one stone...

my avatar is a sculpture called The Fremont Bridge Troll located under a bridge in Seattle.

One of my favorite movies is 10 Things I Hate About You and this statue was in it.

So when I got a chance to go to Seattle, I told my friends that if I see nothing else, I want to see that.

Scholle is the name of the ' ghost' town where I was raised and still live . It was a real town up till the late 1940's when everyone moved to bigger towns ,because of the drought and depression and WW2. My family has a ranch here and my grand dad was postmaster of the post office that was in a corner our front room. I'm a 4Th generation Scholle kid..
