Dave (the ancient mariner) has a photo under his screen name in the Mudcat Resources page. Liz the Squeak has pictures in the Lanstock event photos in the Mudcat resources page. Dave the Gnome is in the pictures of the Manchester gathering thread.

Actually, "Crazy Eddie" is a concept rather than a being, taken from a Sci-Fi book by Niven & Pournelle. Not sure it is accurate, but I try my best not to quit just because a thing is deemed impossible.

My name comes from a character in a book, whom I admire even if I don't resemble him as closely as I'd like to:

Gonff the mousethief padded silently along the passage from the larder and storeroom of Kotir. He was a plump little creature, clad in a green jerkin with a broad buckled belt. He was a ducker and a weaver of life, a marvelous mimic, ballad writer, singer, and lockpick, and very jovial with it all. The woodlanders were immensely fond of the little thief. Gonff shrugged it all off, calling every creature his matey in imitation of the otters, whom he greatly admired. Chuckling quietly to himself, he drew the small dagger from his belt and cut off a wedge from the cheese he was carrying. Slung around his shoulder was a large flask of elderberry wine which he had also stolen from the larder. Gonff ate and drank, singing quietly to himself in a deep bass voice between mouthfuls of cheese and wine.

Got the name the first time I was exposed to folk music many years ago. As I had a tendency to try and fix most anything (not always with much sucess),an abiding case of wanderlust, and I loved to dance with most anyone I could pull out on the dance floor.... I now call a contractor, chauffer the kids, but still love to dance

Gonff the mousethief (from a websearch) comes from a book in which animals rebel against an evil cat who has seized power in a phantasy land.

Makes me wonder about your motives, Alex, and who please do you consider to be the evil cat over here?

It was later adopted by my husband to call myself or either of our 2 kids "Bogues". So now you know! Taatie Bogle

Partly yes, partly no. I am a lightly built person....hence, "Little". As for the "Hawk" part...I have terrible eyesight, so it doesn't work for that...but I have good connections with birds of prey in a spiritual sense, and have taken a falconry course at one time...so it does work there. I've always liked hawks.

When flattop refers to me as "Little Shit Hawk", he is using a common local expression for seagulls, "shit hawks". Very disrespectful!
