My favorite poem by Scott, which starts out:
O young Lochinvar is come out of the west,

Through all the wide Border his steed was the best;

And save his good broadsword he weapons had none,

He rode all unarm’d, and he rode all alone.

So faithful in love, and so dauntless in war,

There never was knight like the young Lochinvar.

Wow, my user name pales in comparison with some of the stories behind those many of you have chosen. Ghost, I particularly enjoyed your story. When I watched the Addams Family as a boy, I always wondered why anyone had a problem with their lifestyle.

I do believe my opening post has gotten more responses than any other except for the infamous "Pipe Babe" post that garnered 135 entries before Kevin wisely decided to shut down the thread.

This thread already exists under a different name. Why was it necessary to open a new one? Do you wish us to respond to both threads? If we respond to one, how will we know that the other one has been read? etc., etc., etc.

Mine is also pretty simple. I have always loved, well been obsessed with, Nightmare Before Christmas and have as long as I can remember suffered from nightmares/terrors.Then added my last name to it because I thought it sounded cool together.

Some of my close friends started calling me "Voorhees" some 20+ year ago. As in "Jason Voorhees" from the "Friday the 13th" movies, my first name is Jason.
