uh oh, I've been blog -tagged again! Woodmouse tagged me. Rats. I have to give up 6 tidbits of information about myself, and then name 3 unwitting bloggers to do the same. ok, here goes:

1. I was a hippie in the 70's. And a bit radical: Marched on Washington. Worked for McGovern. Was a member of SDS (Students for a Democratic Society). My Republican father was horrified.

2. I had my kids late in life. Noah was born when I was 38, Max when I was 40. Max is soon to turn 13. Now you know how old I am!

3. I went to an all-girls private school, from 4th grade through 12th grade. Prep school. I was not a preppie. Hippies were frowned upon. It was a difficult time.

4. My best friends die. It might be best to not be my best friend. Seriously.

5. I'm a bit psychic. My cousin is a medium. Seriously. If you want to talk to any dead people, let me know and I'll put you in touch with her.

6. I am not in love anymore with my day-job/career/whatever you want to call it, but there is no way I can quit cause I have the mortgage to pay. How do you start a new career at 53? Open an Etsy shop. :0)

OK, now who shall I tag?????

fairies nest, mosey and dragons-spark! you're all IT!

Thanks Woodmouse!!! (the goatie at the top of the post is one of woodmouse's creations, that is now mine, and sits here with me, I love him)

Your blog caught my attention on the Mom Blog Network when you said you used to be a hippie. We have several things in common. I was born too late to be a hippie, but I did consider myself a hippie-want-a-be. My best friend died about 4 years ago on my daughter's 6th birthday. I also had kids late in life(30). Oh, and I pissed my parents off when I checked democrat on my voter registration card.
Nice to meet you, m~

I am so glad you stopped by my site earlier.. We have some things in common. Age-I'm 51. I was almost a hippie. My best friends die also.
I'm a bit psychic. Sometimes
Well, I didn't mean to make this all about me.
Glad to meet you and enjoyed my visit here.
