TMI = Too Much information = a meme.
Wow, I'm doing my very first meme. Thanks Matthew Rosov for the tag! I guess I'm it! Here goes...
IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY...no, that's not it.
ONCE UPON A TIME...no.
Do do do do do do do do...(my version of music setting the stage)
You're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead - your next stop, the Twilight Zone!
Okay, that one is closer but it should say, your next stop, Texas!
Hi, this is my first meme and my name is Debra A Brooks. I am an only child born in Indiana and moved
to Texas at a tender age of 12. I really did think I was in the Twilight Zone. At the time, I was qualified and
training for the Junior Olympics in Breast Stroke and Freestyle Swimming. My life revolved around swimming
and the competition. As it turned out, my little Texas town had no City Pool or a Swim Team. (total bummer)
I loved listening to WLS Chicago because it was the progressive station that played Rock and Roll. My dad
helped me with my huge collection of Rock and Roll (yes, on vinyl) that disappeared from the moving truck
when we arrived in Texas. The only station I could get was the local "cryin' in my beer and singin' thru my nose
kind of country music".
My first Texas boyfriend came to visit me on his HORSE. We considered it our Texas Limousine.
I really thought I had died and gone to the WRONG place. Five years later we traveled in a car across the border of Mexico and got married.
I never claimed to be the brightest bulb in the chandelier! My elevator didn't make it to the top floor!

I grew up and had two wonderful children, not just one husband (I'm a handful) and contrary to your possible belief, am not related to Garth Brooks.
Although, when I was living in Dallas, Texas and working to raise my two children, I had the pleasure of meeting Garth and traveling with the Garth Brooks Band for quite some time. That is a story unto itself and probably a series.
For many moons I worked for JMB Corporation out of Chicago. I was the North Central Director of Marketing and
loved every minute. I was in charge and responsible for 4200 apartment units in Texas, handled the
hiring and training of our sales reps and taught training seminars. I won top sales person in the Nation in 1988
which got me started with my love of Real Estate. I moved on to help form a company that was created as a
"corporate advertising creative support group". Our name was Show Works, Inc. and we worked with high tech
companies and I had a ball.
Bottom line is, all my X's live in Texas and I do too! My husband, Scott Brooks is the love of my life and
we are both happy working together in our Real Estate business. Our business is brooksprimeproperties.com
Together, we have 7 grandchildren! We love our lives and follow the Christian word.
I've just gotta tell ya. This Active Rain site is too much! I'm getting drunk on all the Google juice I've been getting!
The blogs I read here are totally invaluable resources to myself and all of us. I think we should call it
Active Rain...The Real Estate Brain! My philosophy to this term is layers deep. Maybe I'll write about it.
And, oh by the way, I get to tag three people now!!!! So, get busy on your own bio...
