I've been tagged!  So basically I am one of six people who are "it".  I am suppose to tag six "other" people who blog.  

My challenge is this:  One of the six I would have tagged passed away a year and a half ago.  He had the same BC that my mom had, but he was just a few years older than me.  I got to know him through that bond.  I was hoping he'd be one to beat the odds, one to find a clinical trial that would work.  He had daughters around my own children's ages.  Tough stuff.  

Another blogger I would have tagged was known as deathmaiden
She was a renegade nurse who wrote about life and death.  Morbid, but fascinating.  She stopped blogging over a year ago.  

Two of the people, I all ready have linked on here, are under 18 and I just can't bring myself to encourage them to bare random facts about themselves on the Internet.  With that stated, I hope Stella and Tigerluv WILL NOT do this!  

The other people I would link to, have all ready been tagged.  :)   Almost everyone else who reads my blog is too chicken to pen their own, let alone leave comments on mine!  ...except for my sister, who has a blog, reads mine but doesn't comment.  So, I'll tag her.  She has lots of cute pictures of my nephew on her site, but she doesn't update things often enough.  She has barely anything on there of her daughter, my little, cutie-pie niece and her house pictures have snow in the shots!  Did I mention she owns a photography studio as her business!?  

So here are the rules:  

1.  Link to the person who tagged you. 
2. Post these six rules on your blog.
3. Write 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.  

(At least) Six random things about me
a.  I wanted to be an astronaut when I grew up, that didn't happen but, I got a cool telescope for Christmas last year!  
b.  Classical music is my favorite, especially piano and violin, I LOVE Joshua Bell and listen to Public Radio all day long.   
c.  I also love hard rock!  My favorite singer is Sammy Hagar and I am still sad he's not with Van Halen anymore.  I'm glad I have a retro-son who loves 70's & 80's rock!  
d.  I secretly would love to find a stray puppy with my daughter, the zoo keeper!  
e.  I believe in spirits, fairies, elves, etc. 
f.  I held my mom and step dad's hands when they died...five weeks apart and it will probably always affect me in all I do.  My dad died when I was 21 and I try to always live like today may be it.  Life is way too short.  
g.  Who's counting...I NEED MORE FRIENDS!

I've already been tagged but am not playing at the moment. I'm having a hard enough time keeping up on my own blog. I have a camera full of pics but no time to post them.

I agree with Esme's last comment. You should think about joining WWFC.
