I grew up watching Leave it to Beaver with "Lumpy" Rutherford, "Whitey" and of course, "the Beaver". Many of my childhood friends acquired nicknames which, perhaps embarassingly, have stuck to this day (We're all in our late 40s and early 50s now.) Examples: Mark D. became "Buford"; Richie J. became "Che"; Terry became "Boogie"; and one guy who I'm not sure even had a first name was simply "Fudgie". There were several attempts at hanging a moniker on me, but nary a one stuck. So.....do any of you have a nickname which has hung with you since childhood? If so, care to share?
