What's the Story Behind Your Avatar?

I'll share first.  Mine is the second rendition of my dog, Luther, who was my great friend of over 9 years.  I put him down this past April after he attacked a neighbor, and along with having a little shrine and some photos of him around the house, this is how I remember how FN great a dog he was to me and my family.  Funny, sad, enigmatic, result of drunkeness, whatever -- what's the story behind your avatar?

St Brendan's Cross surounded by a sun. The cross is 4 dolphins put together to make a cross symbolizing my wife, my step sons and myself, and the sun symbolizes our daughter.

Re: What's the Story Behind Your Avatar?

Reggae music when I was a kid in the early 80's was THE music everyone bumped in my neighborhood growing up.  EEK-a-Mouse, Gregory Isaacs, Yellowman to name a few were common household names the kids knew about.  Well, reggae singer, Mikey Dread made an album called S.W.A.L.K. and was the first album I ever bought and played it ALL the time.  He was my favorite reggae artist at the time.  My name is Mike so naturally my friends nicknamed me Mikey Dread and it stuck.  My avatar is Mikey Dread's logo from his record label...Dread At The Controls.  He produced some smashin music for himself and many early reggae artists in the early 80's ......RIP Mikey Dread

Gotta tell ya -- when I first saw your avatar, I was confused.  I had never heard of Mikey Dread, so I did a quick Google search and learned a bit, but not much.  I was like, "A Museum member is also a reggae legend?!" lol Cool story!
