What does your screen name mean?

Post by Janik » Tue Sep 04, 2018 7:44 pm

Curious what members screen names mean? Some are obvious, but others are harder to figure out. Obviously mine is easy. But for those who don't know or aren't very familiar to Canik, it's close to how the name "Canik" is pronounced in Turkey. Anyway, let's hear what your screen name means.

Jonathan Quail Higgins, consort of Thomas Magnum P.I. I have always been a fan of Magnum. I actually had a friend that looked just like him- and the ladies went for him too.
But, anyway....my oldest son drove a little red convertible sports car, and always wore the Hawaiian shirts. He wore a ball cap, and carried a 1911 in the s.o.b. He was a deputy for a while and even did some P.I. work for a local company. We started calling him Magnum P.I., and my name is Jonathan...so I became the down to earth Jonathan Q Higgins. Always warning the young fellow to watch out for this and that. Higgy Baby is what T.C. called Higgins. My nick-name in high school was Hook-a-baby.....it all seemed to fit. Higgy Baby.

I just saw a preview on TV last night that they are remaking Magnum PI. I think it starts some time this month. I'll try watching it, but probably won't be nearly as good as the original.

My buddy and I own a soft plastic fishing lure company called Crabby Bass Lures. I came up with the name using the first initials of our first names. My name is Chuck and his is Brad. I call myself Crabby even though I rarely am. LOL! The 77 is the year I was born.

Basically the P is for Paul and the Mac is the nickname I have carried since I was about 13. Short for McCullough. 74 is my birth year.

Id love to change it to PTMac2015. P for my first name T is for Tina, my wife, the Mac speaks for itself and 2015 is the year we were married.

My wife and I had our 5th child this summer. I'm normally exhausted and don't have much time for target practice... I look forward to retiring in 20+ years... LOL

Flew UH-1, UH-60 and AH-6 "Little Birds" in the Army then spent 28 years as an EMS helicopter pilot, EMS flight and ground instructor and check airman.

The name seemed obvious... :-D
