OK, I'll play along. It seems that the blogosphere version of a chain letter has landed on my doorstep, and rather than have seven years writer's block, I am going to play along, for the one and only time.

It says that I must do two things... I must tag six people, and that I must say six strange things about myself.

Six strange things about myself is no problem at all. In fact, my life is like a train of strange events. As for tagging six people, that poses a problem. I'll figure something out.

OK... six strange things about me:

1. When I was a teenager, I thought that Valerie Bertinelli was the hottest thing since the two-taco dinner at La Fiesta Mexican Restaurant. Now, not so much.

2. I have driven a Zamboni in three different decades and in three different states.

3. It took me 17 years to get my Associate of Arts Degree, two and a half years to get my Bachelors, and three semesters to get my Masters.

4. I have a very unusual first name, that was inspired by the theme music to a very popular television show the summer I was born. In fact, the theme song was a number one hit. The show? "Davy Crockett." No, you're not going to guess it.

5. On April 11 I will attend my third straight Major League Baseball Opening Day game in Washington, DC. The previous two were in 2005 and 1971.

6. I name my Labrador Retrievers after hurricanes, because both Labs and hurricanes are only partially predictable and very destructive. My last three were named Camille, Frederic and Audrey.

I have a seventh, but it is a secret. Yes, it is for you... *wink*

Fess? I had a Lab named Baby, because she wanted to be a lap dog. She was only destructive with that tail tho.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Camille's tail was a killer... but she was also a chewer. I came home one day and she chered all the lining out of my pack boots.

She was an awesome dog, though...
