My 1st son is Zach and my second is Austin and and thought down the road we might try for a third ( hoping for a daughter for my wife) so we thought AtoZ would include any additional child .... Well the good lord blessed us with that daughter ( Grace)  so we decided we were done so we had things taken care of ( if you know what i mean!!) .... year and a half later we had 2nd daughter, because we were the 1st that the surgery didn't work on! After many worry filled nights on how we would every raise a 4Th child, my special little Maddie was born and she is my Little daddy's girl! ( Mom hates it) All i can say is " The Lord works in mysterious ways ." I know long story but AtoZ started out as a joke but ended up with some meaning!!!

Oh my goodness ATOZ, what a story! Glad you have 4 wondeful kids though.

You know we went with that same plan and ended up with a little red headed, ball of fire boy, didn't quite have the same ending.
I used my name on all the other board, guess I never thought I needed a nickname.

Here in WA there are plenty of trees and I worked in the woods during the summer while going to college.  I use a stihl chainsaw and I like to think I'm good with it.  So I chose Stihlpro  ;D

An old e-mail address I was assigned from a DoD computer system.  The address convention was based on the first six letters of your last name and first two letters of your first name.  I've just stuck with it because its never taken and easy for me to remember.

Well, I love cattle and show cattle so I thought cattlejunky fit.  When I started making shirts and decals I decided to call it Cattlejunky also.

Well,  the first heifer we bought was named Duchess Pride, We are also of Dutch heritage so when we were thinking of a farm name we came up with Dutch Pride Club Calves, so that's where I get dutchpride.

Hit the "show road" when I was 14 and some 30+ years later am still on it (not quite as much though) Not many of us "old warriors" left.

When I registered for steer planet that was the name I was given.  Thought about changing it but
then I realized I didn't know how so hairy it is!

My SteerPlanet handle started out as an insult, about 11 years ago, at Tyson Foods, Inc., Berryville AR plant. Just like the young man from Virginia, I didn't have a job (or a Cattle Operation, like so many of my peers)  waiting on me when I graduated from the University. So, to pass the time, I went back to my old stand-by: The Chicken Plant. Northwest Arkansas was in the midst of a transition from Mayberry to Metropolitan, and, "lucky Me", I had a snooty California-girl ( Valley-girl lingo, etc.) for a Supervisor.
The job I had, was the "Grinder Operator", for Lines 5 and 6. This was a new experience, as I hadn't worked in "Preparation" of Fully Cooked Product before. If I remember correctly, I was responsible for ginding Breast Filets, in order to transform them into the "BK Broiler" sandwich patty. In fact, those two lines together produced about 2/3 of all the Chicken Sandwich patties sold in the Continental USA at any/all Burger King Franchises.Worked 6 and 7-day weeks. The job involved a lot of heavy lifting, as each "tub" of raw Breast Meat weighed 70lbs, and a "Batch" was 1700 pounds, counting Marination & all. Me& Gayle Schupenheymer had to ''wash down'' at each Break-period, too.  And, being fresh outta school, pressed Wranglers or Cinch Jeans was about all I had. So, I hopped it on down to Race Bros. and bought 6pairs of Big Smith Overalls.

Back to Valley Girl and my nickname.

My Supervisor was passing out paychecks one week, but kept passing me by. In disgust, She said, "I don't see a'Billy Bob's' check in here", when I asked for mine. My 'Lead', Jeff Siverly, said, "Oh, that's Gary!  He worked here as a teenager. Now, He's just a sorry, ol' taxpayer like Us!'', and kinda diffused the situation a little bit.

Somehow, or another, "GaryBob"  kind of evolved from that conversation. In fact, many people to this day (the ones I didn't go to High School with), in Berryville and Green Forest don't even know my middle name is "Allen".

I still wear Overalls when I'm working a "work" kind of job. Just like my Daddy,and both Grandfathers.

Long story, but, that's  how "GaryBob" came into existence.
