    I dont know if this has anything to do with your handle, but everv time I see your handle I think of this old Red Sovine tune, Teddy Bear.


    I told him my handle and then he began
    Though I'm not supposed to bother you fellows out there
    Mom says you're busy and for me to stay off the air
    But you see I get lonely and it helps to talk
    Cause that's about all I can do I'm crippled and I can't walk
    I came back and told him to fire up that mike
    And I'd talk to him as long as he'd liked
    This was my dad's radio the little boy said
    But I guess it's mine and mom's now cause my daddy's dead
    Dad had a wreck about a month ago
    He was tryin' to get home in a blinding snow
    Mom has to work now to make ends meet
    And I'm not much help with my two crippled feet
    She says not to worry that we'll make it alright
    But I hear her cryin' sometimes late at night
    You know there's one thing I want more than anything else to see
    Oh I know you guys are too busy to bother with me
    But you see my dad used to take me for rides when he was home
    But I guess that's all over now since my daddy's gone
    Not one breaker came on the old CB as that little crippled boy talked with me
    I tried hard to swallow a lump just wouldn't stay down
    As I thought about my boy back in Greenville town
    Dad was gonna take mom and me with him later on this year
    Why I remember him sayin' someday
    This old truck will be yours Teddy Bear
    But I know I'll never get a ride on 18-wheeler again
    But this old base'll keep me in touch with all my trucker friends
    Teddy Bear's gonna back on out now and leave you alone
    Cause it's about time for mom to come home
    But you give me shout when you're passin' through
    And I'll surely be happy to come back to you
    Well I came back and I said before you go 10-10
    What's your home 20 little CB friend
    He gave me his address and I didn't once hesitate
    Cause this hot load of freight was just gonna have to wait
    I turened that truck around on a dime
    And headed straight for Jackson Street 229
    And as I rounded the corner oh I got one the heck of a shock
    18-wheelers were lined up for three city blocks
    I guess every driver for miles around had caught Teddy Bear's call
    And that little crippled boy was havin' a ball
    For as fast as one driver would carry him in
    Another would carry him to his truck and take off again
    Well you better believe I took my turn driving Teddy Bear
    And then carried him back in and put him down in his chair
    And buddy if I never live to see happiness again
    I want you to know I saw it that day in the face of that little man
    We took up a collection for him before his mama got home
    And each driver said goodbye and then they were all gone
    He shook my hand with a mile long grin and said so long trucker I'll catch you again
    Well I hit that Interstate with tears in my eyes
    I turned on the radio and I got another surprise
    Breaker 1-9 came the voice on the air
    Just one word of thanks from mama Teddy Bear
    We wish each and everyone a special prayer for you
    Cause you just made my little boy's dream come true
    I'll sign off now before I start to cry may God ride with you 10-4 and goodbye

    Well, no it doesnt. I picked up the nic name at a very early age because I never went anywhere without my teddy bear. I still have it.
