I'm similar to Bill in Alabama. Roger is my given name. Westminster, my real home town, seemed too obscure (and now I know it may have confused our British group. Maryland, my home state, seemed too broad. So I chose the nearest big town and there I was, Roger in Baltimore.

I went to last year's Getaway and Bill D. took some pictures and they were part of the first Mudcat photo album. Well Catspaw saw that and started to refer to me as Big RiB, RiB being short for Roger in Baltimore. I liked it, so I use it to sign off on threads where my intent is not so serious.
