My Good Time Stories

Bringing a giraffe into the world is a tall order. A baby giraffe falls 10 feet from its mother’s womb and usually lands on its back. Within seconds it rolls over and tucks its legs under its body. From this position it considers the world for the first time and shakes off the last vestiges of the birthing fluid from its eyes and ears. Then the mother giraffe rudely introduces its offspring to the reality of life.

In his book, “A View from the Zoo”, Gary Richmond describes how a newborn giraffe learns its first lesson. The mother giraffe lowers her head long enough to take a quick look. Then she positions herself directly over her calf. She waits for about a minute, and then she does the most unreasonable thing.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. Hello Dr. Rex. Thank you for being here. I discovered you while on the Good times Stories blog. What really got my attention was that I uttered those very words “It Is What It Is” out of the blue in a conversation with a friend last night. What perfect calm that ensued afterwards. That friend just called in the middle of typing this. Coincidence? Synchronicity? Quite interesting the times we are now in.
    I appreciate your Vision and look forward to read more of your posts. “The future looks bright and promising!” because of beautiful people like you in it.
    Infinite Blessings ❤

    • btw, that’s one of my mantras. Others: Don’t fight it; Let it go; Life is a series of unexpected events; Life Is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans. Peace …

      • Aye! Thank you, Dr. Rex. I’m back already. More synchronicities, I share your mantras above which have gotten me, carrying me through these 50++years 🙂
        Your website is beautiful too! I love the pictures. That same friend I told you about above gave me a keyboard as a gift recently and expect me to play and play perfectly too. I still don’t know how to play 🙂 Coming back again soon to click on that “piano” link you have. I think there’s a message there. 🙂
        Much appreciation! Peace & hugs ❤
