How did you get your 'Africam Nickname'?

I got mine from a cat (Tabatha) who used to visit my Day Care Centre occasionally and who, eventually, moved in permanently after his (yes, he was a tom-cat!) owner passed away.....

I got mine from an African friend of mine who thought my name was Galvin, not Gavin, when we first met. He has been calling me Galvin ever since Tongue Out

I have two boys whose nicknames are Chubbs and Goobs. This was my attempt to combine the two.

In America the term "okie" is often said in a negative way but I think it means people trying to do something positive.   Okies moved from Oklahoma, when drought arrived, to find something better.  I am proud to live in this state.  Alice is the name my new parents gave me when I was adopted.  I used to work for AOL and often told people about Africam as a way to keep them interested in using the internet.  This site was just beginning back then.  I am glad to come back to Africam.
