    I've had quite a few avatars. They are scattered all over between three PC's. Just changed it back to a big favorite that I asked permission to use from the artist, the "Monkey Roger". My most recent one is an actor who portrays Ben Franklin signing "hang loose" and "call me" which I find very funny.

    Here are a few others that happen to be on my laptop:

    Hah! The Padres ownership has sabotaged the team's entire season every year since 1999 (the year after San Diego voters approved financing for a downtown ballpark, but that's merely a coincidence, I'm sure) by refusing to spend the money for decent players. In 2012, the team had the lowest payroll in the National League.

    However: the team was just sold to a group of investors that includes the O'Malley family, former owners of the NY/LA Dodgers. Given the historic performance of that club over the years—especially after the move to California—there's reason for hope.

    My dear Aunt Ethelyn wrote children's books, mostly about kids age 11 & 12.

    Her generosity enabled me (first licensed at age 15) to get on the air

    with a homebrew 100 watt xmtr and triple-conversion receiver (both using WWII surplus parts).

    In 1968, with technical assistance from my brother W9JDG and I, she wrote Today I am a Ham.

    She "borrowed" my callsign for her main character, Eric, a boy, like me, not too athletically inclined.

    Over the years, it's been gratifying to receive letters and email from hams

    who attribute their introduction to our hobby to her book. :)
