Meet The Contributors

Mandy ~ I am a stay at home mom who has been on a medical roller coaster ride going from doctor to doctor trying to figure out what is wrong with me. All of the doctors agreed that there is something medically wrong with me, they just don't know what... Basically, just about every time that I go to the doctor, I wind up with a new diagnosis. It is very frustrating. I hope that some of these links will maybe help you or lead you in the right direction.

Ferd ~ I have had the honor and pleasure of practicing Internal Medicine for over 25 years. I am now enjoying sharing my thoughts and experience in the blogosphere in a number of ways. I am grateful to Mandy for including me on her excellent blog, Texas Medical Freak!

Writers Block/Brain Fog ~ I've Been Tagged

Susie over at Soul-To-Soul aka my sister Stevie Ray Vaughan junkie recently tagged me. Now I am supposed to list either six boring or quirky things about me. Then pick some other bloggers to continue the circle. I usually don't like being tagged but, since it is Susie, I will play along. Hopefully this will help with my brain fog/writers block?

  1. Like Susie, I thought that school was a social event, who knew that it wasn't =) I did pass most of the classes that I really liked with A's and B's but, the rest...were by the skin of my teeth. I also passed this on to my daughter (genetically) her kindergarten teacher called me the first week of school and told me that "your daughter talks entirely too much!" Needless (and proud) to say, my daughter graduated in the top 25% of her 5A rated class. It took her until her Jr. year of high school to get above a "N" on her conduct grade.
  2. My wonderful husband looks like Johnny Depp’s older blue eyed brother.
  3. I am an Aquarian who attracts Cancer’s but, I prefer June Cancer’s over the July variety.
  4. If my husband and I had been born in the late 40’s to early 50’s and not the 60’s we would have been complete flower power hippies.
  5. I have an eclectic collection of music (Blues, Rock, Reggie. R&B, Metal and yes even some Country) but, at heart I am a metal head.
  6. I am not a big on sports but…I do love a good Hockey game and you can even through in a fight or even a game with a bunch of fouls so that they get thrown into the penalty box. Don’t get me wrong though, I am in no way “a Hockey mom with lipstick.” I just like to go to the games.
Now for my blogger picks, Angelika, What Does This Song Mean To Me?, My Autism Insights, The Best Parts, Just Breezie and Stop Apathy Now.

How funny! I'm a July Cancer!

My Autism Insights ~ LOL figures. It is not that I don't like July's, I just prefer June's. My hubby is a June.

Great line up there Mandy! I hope it blocked your writers cramps! I would so have been a hippie to.. ever check out it's a great throw back!

Lookin' out the Window! Rock on!

Susie ~ Thanks =) I will have to show my husband the hippie shop, he will get a kick out of it.

Ferd said...

Okay, I did it! My boring and quirky meme is up on my site.
Actually, that was fun!

Yours were great. You know, I was born in 1955 and feel I just missed all the hippy stuff. I was an 8th grader in 1969. But old enough to at least enjoy all the cool music!

Ferd ~ Great job and good luck with your nerd suit =) It was fun. As I said in my post, I usually don't like this "tagged" thing but, this one was fun.

My parents and my husbands parent's are the same age all born in the 40's. My parents missed the the hippy stuff (they listened to the music but that was about it) but, his didn't. I also, have an aunt that was born in '54 and she is still a hippy. The music was cool and it still is. My daughter and son-in-law listen to a lot of it too.

One thing that I did leave out is the thing that drives me crazy more than anything! Parents driving in their cars with their own seat belts on and kids bopping around in the car. It just burns me up!

I've been away too long! I came back though to read something that brightened my day :-)
