Nickname bestowed by my wife due to a propensity for buzz cut type haircuts
Years ago on my 21st birthday in a drunken and pot induced stupor I picked up a kitten and brought it home with me. Living in Florida at the time, I named it Hobie Cat after the catamarans which were popular at the time.
But one evening in another long, pot induced discussion with a friend, we were discussing past lives and what his name might be, and we came up with Star Wars version: Hobie Wan Catobi and the Latin version which would be Hobicus Catipuss, and then lost interest because we had the munchies.
The cat has since passed on, and I no longer smoke pot... but the name Hobicus is still with me, and when I see my friend once in a while, we still talk about that night we brought Hobie home.
I love my country but fear my government

I picked my moniker because it fits me to a T (life IS good)!
Warning...............Obsessions can be habit forming.

Gourmet because that is the name of my company - Gourmet Foodservice Inc. and I am sooo unimaginative!!!!!!!!!
I use the handle Lois because Lou is to hard to spell
Call me "Captain Mudbucket".
"Oldgeezer". Self explanatory. When I'm dead and gone
perhaps I'll consider acting my age and ride a Goldwing.
Till then, you'll have to pull me kicking and screaming off
my Blackbird. BTW, I always love parking next to a bunch
of young squids and then take off my helmet. The look on
their faces is priceless.

I live in Northern California and ride an XX, hence NorCalXX. Not very creative,

just my real first name, "Keith".

My favorite book series as a kid was written by Tolkien and one of his famous charcters was a "dunedian" pronounced "dune-a-die-ing" or "Ranger" part of an elite race of men who lived for a long time and were skilled horsemen and outdoor types, loners.
Plus I got tired of changing my name everytime I got a new bike, XXVFR, GIXXER, YZXXER, APRIXXIA....ect so I took something else that helped define who I was and DUNEDAIN is what came up and I can stick with the rest of my life (I think)
Who knows I may become the "artist formerly known as....."
