Tag - I'm It!

Ok, I’ve been tagged by Bawana. So, according to the rules of the game, I’ve got to tell you eight things about myself that you might not know – that will be fun! At least one or two may be doozies.

And I’ve got to tag eight more people. That may be harder. I don’t know everybody who’s been tagged already but I’ll give it a shot. If you've already been tagged, sorry and just ignore.

First the eight things.
  1. I collect teddy bears and have over a hundred of them spilling into every room in my house including my downstairs bathroom.

  2. I also collect Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad lore with their Chessie logo, which is the sleeping kitten.

  3. Back in the late 1970s, I gave up a job on a suburban newspaper to live in New York City and write about the Greenwich Village/Lower East Side music scene for alternative newspapers.

  4. While doing that I interviewed, and became friendly with, Kinky Friedman, who recently ran for governor of Texas; and Chinga Chavin, who recorded the Country Porn album (my articles were PG-Rated). I don't have a link to those articles but I still have my clippings.

  5. Although I came from a very musical family, I can't carry a tune and have a terrible singing voice.

  6. I used to act in straight dramas and comedies (anything non-musical) in high school and college and I wrote poetry that I performed as a one-woman show.

  7. I am terrified to fly but I do it anyway.

  8. I was once a Young Republican for one day. A friend of mine needed a vote in a convention and she paid for my membership. We won!

    Now my tags – you’re it:



Kestrel 9000

Terry Rhea




Squeaky Wheel

Yeah, the last one is actually in Ohio now. And somebody else may have tagged him. But it's the least I can do to annoy him :)
