g-reggie-bibbs.jpgLou and I are in the middle of what I thought would be a very difficult task: asking celebrities, artists and friends to draw a doodle for National Doodle Day benefiting NF!

Well, I’m happy to say it was very easy thanks to some very special friends! With the help of some special people who want a cure for NF as much as I do, friends from all over the country whipped out their writing instruments and doodled for NF. Some of them you may know like Sugar Ray Leonard. (SEE DOODLE ABOVE LEFT)

Somee-lou-congelio-_1.jpg are friends of my friend, Lou. A big thank you to Lou and all of you who played anf.jpg big part in this effort to Knock Out NF Once and for all. Take time to see all the doodles on my photo page and go the National NF Doodle Day website!

All doodles will be posted shortly onto ebay where you will be able to bid on your favorite NF doodle!!!

Bid high, soon and often and do your part to help raise money for NF.

Doodlers include Sugar Ray Leonard; designer Andy Dearwater; artist/gallery owner Dan Allison, stamp art artist Kim White; printmaking professor Peter Massing, illustrator Matt Loftiss; America’s Greatest Artists, The Art Guys; writers Lou Congelio and Matt Walsh; Lou’s daughter, Elena Congelio; yours truly, Reggie Bibbs; STANANDLOU’s Kate Wiggins and Rhea Diaz; and my nephew, Jordan Walker.

I spoke with Mari Garcia administrator of Gillian Anderson’s Official Web Site. I was asked sometime ago to help out and to contribute a doodle for NF, Inc’s Second National Doodle Day Auction. I was happy to post a blog and do what I can to be of help.

Please check out the attached doodles that my friends have done so far and also the doodles of your favorite actors and actress and others who have support the fight against NF at Doodle Day USA.

The auction will start on May 8 on eBay. So far there are two pages and more doodles will be added as they come in. Be sure and blog your favorite doodle.

NF, Inc. is raising money for neurofibromatosis through their annual National Doodle Day! As part of NF Awareness month, celebrity doodles will be available for auction on eBay.

These doodles have a very important aim: the funds they raise will benefit NF, Inc., an organization dedicated to providing support to individuals and families affected by neurofibromatosis (NF).

  1. There’s some very cool stuff here. More to come! If anyone would like to do a doodle for NF, here’s all you do. Get a thick white 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper. If you have an art store nearby , go there and ask for a card stock…something thick that you can’t see through. Cut it in half to make two 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ pieces. Draw something. That’s it!

    Send with your name and website url or blog, if you have one, to me at:

  2. Don’t worry about how well you draw. I don’t like what I drew.
    And Lou said something nice about it. I’m sure you will do better then I did. And Realmere1 I need to email you. I have some phone questions. I could ask you here but I don’t want to get of track. You might see the question on the previous blog.

  3. This is just a idea, at the next NF Family Camp, maybe have the kids and adults doodle, may get some creative doodles, and this be done by families with NF. Something I just came up with.

I have another MRI set up for tomorrow and I don’t know when I will see the doctor. I just hope It’s good and not anything bad. Now how can I bug Lou? Oh I will just give him a call.

  10. Brian, I will mail you some cards, some pens or markers and some ideas if you’d like. Why don’t you look in the mirror and draw what you see. Or, I can send you a water soluble marker so you can trace your face in the mirror then copy it to a piece of paper.

At one time he was in a wheelchair, and was told he may never walk again, but he can, I met him aboout 3 years or so after his accident. I got the Eddie with no patiance, He has told me that before his accident he had pleantly of patiance now he has none.

    A dog is truly a man’s best friend.
    If you don’t believe it, just try this experiment.

    Put your dog and your wife in the trunk of the car for an hour.
    When you open the trunk, who is really happy to see you ?

  19. yea, I got that from my BIL, if my husband tried to put me in the trunk, well lets not have anything in writting, I don’t know where he gets these things. But if you knew his wife I would love to her in the trunk and leave her there.

  37. MIchelle and her friend just left after a couple bottles of wine. Boy, it went down too easy. Had Thai food for dinner. Lot’s left over. I guess I’ll have a Thai breakfast tomorrow. It’s kind of traditional around here to have Thai for Easter morning. Call me a sentimentalist! Miss you, Meredyth, where you been?

    #143 Reggie, you’re the only turkey I know.

    #142 Brian, back at ya!

    #147 Patricia, I use the KRAFT technique for mac and cheese. Empty box in boiling water, strain, add powder from enclosed pouch, add gobs of butter and milk. Serve. Feeds one hungry kid.
