I got to meet my first MRBA member face to face today. Since we were in his neck of the woods, Old Bopper dropped by where my husband and I were having lunch and said hello and chatted a bit. Even though I’ve seen pictures of him it is good talking to someone in person.
I know several of you have written about the MRBA in your blogs. I guess this is my version. And for those of you who don’t know, MRBA stands for Marshall Ramsey Blogaholics Anonymous.
Of course Marshall is the head of the household. I can’t say “grandfather” cause that just sounds old. Godfather maybe?!! Boss? Anyway, it’s his blog. He can be whatever he wants to be. He’s an amazing artist with the wit to make his cartoons Pulitzer Prize material. Seriously. He’s been nominated twice.
I kind of look to OldBopper as the father figure of the blog. And LegalEagle would be our mom. Not an age thing now guys. They just have that parental type of advice and knowledge they always share with us. But now at times, Eagle is more like Peg Bundy than June Cleaver!
There are many brothers, sisters, cousins, and friends.
DHCoop is our motivator. The blog tends to drag when she’s not around.
Supermom, Clucky and Stacey are the witty sisters. You never know what those girls will come up with! Watercolor is the creative, thought provoking sis. Cardinallady is like the independent big sister coming and going all the time. Sounds like she has the most interesting job.
JB (tnmsu) is our little brother because he’s always picking and trying to start a fight. But we love him…just like a little brother. He’s also a former pastor and still keeps pulling out those corny pastor’s jokes.
MSUDEERE would be our loving big brother who is always keeping an eye out for us and defending his sisters when necessary. And Chas3r is our little brother that we have to keep an eye on!
Beninthejack and Reximusaugustus are like twin sons of different mothers. They keep us laughing. Sometimes their humor goes right over my head though…
Choclablover is our spunky little sis. She speaks her mind. She also shares her struggles of infertility in the most heartfelt way.
MMrsH and Mark are our level headed ones. It’s a good thing. We need them!
Bloggerman is the prodigal son that pops in and out. You never know when he’ll show up!
Grammargirl is our inspiration and hero. She’s a breast cancer survivor and prods us all to get our yearly check-up and mammogram.
We’ve got military, photographers, MSU fans and Ole Miss fans. And many more cousins and friends that join us daily or just drop in every now and then. It’s way too many to name personally plus I don’t want to forget someone and offend them!
Like I said, we’re just one big, happy family. Well, usually. Just don’t offend BonsaiPig!
