More New Bling Things

Standard

Hi Friends!   Two more exciting things happened to me this week and today I’ll tell you about both of them. 

First, my good friends Mollie and Alfie at Mollie’s Dog Treats nominated me for “The Sisterhood Of The World Bloggers Award”……which I decided to give to my Mom since she’s the best blogging secretary around (!).  Here’s the award – isn’t it neato looking?

I’m supposed to share seven things about myself but since I gave Mom the award, the “things” will be from her!  Then we nominate five other bloggers for the award to pass it on…………Mom – TAKE IT AWAY!!

Sam’s Mom here……seven things about me that I haven’t shared before might be tough – if some of these sound familiar to you they probably ARE (haha):

  1. I’m a published writer:  one mystery novel, one book written with five other women, one childrens book, about a bazillion poems and MANY short stories (and of course I help Sam with his blog!!).
  2. My very first job was one that required me to have a TOP SECRET security clearance.
  3. My eyesight is horrible…..I wear no-line bifocals and have worn glasses (or contacts) since I was a teenager (which was around 200 years ago).
  4. When I was a little kid my older sister (yes Carol I’m telling the world this story) hid pickled pigs feet in my mashed potatoes once – needless to say I had a fit when I “found” them.
  5. I love reading….I could LIVE in a library if I needed to (assuming there was a takeout restaurant close by that would deliver).
  6. During my last physical with my doctor I found out I’d shrunk an entire inch…..sadly that inch was lost in my height – not in my “width” (hahahaha).
  7. I adore Sammy.  He’s the most intelligent cat I’ve ever had and I’ve had a lot of cats in my life.   

Aw gee……thanks Mom for that #7 thing……I think you’re pretty darn intelligent too – for a human.  😀 😀 😀   Now for my five nominees for the award:

Little Miss Satchie – little Satchie just found out recently she was a little girl…she’s only 12 weeks old and SO adorable!  I’m her “honorary” Uncle.

My Three Moggies – three new friends from “across the Pond”

These Days of Mine – my girlfriend kitty Sundae has a Mom who takes super duper photos of sunsets and sunrises on the water

Pedro The Cat – my Hawaiian buddy Pedro is gonna be a superstar one day soon – I’m just SURE of it – Pedro, you can give this one to your human since she’s a she…..!

Clowie’s Corner – another new doggy friend

The second thing that happened this week is my good guinea pig buddies at Hutch A Good Life chose the name I suggested for their new little stuffed animal guinea pig toy their Mum bought for them to play with.  They asked all their followers to suggest a name and we suggested FURnando !  That’s the name they gave it – how cool is that?  They presented me with a really nice badge.  They said I could make an acceptance speech if I wanted to………well, for once I’m at a loss for words!!  I thought the name I suggested would be kind of “exotic” sounding and cute for a little guinea piggie (even if it was a stuffed one :D) so that’s why I submitted it.  I’m honored that whenever they play with their new little friend, they’ll think of ME!

Whew…………longer than usual blog……..sorry about that……I promise to make my Friday blog a lot shorter OK? 

Love to all of you and of course……Sammy Hugs too!  😀 😀 😀

  1. Wow, concats Sam on ANOTHER award! Well, two awards actually. Cool name for your guinea pig’s new toy!
    I’ll proudly accept the “Sisterhood” award for Motor Mommy and have her get to work on her acceptance post right away.
    Have a good day, Sam. It’s very cloudy here…maybe more rain?
    Love, Sundae

    • Hi Sundae!! I’m glad you and your Mom like the “Sisterhood” award…..and also glad you approve of the name I suggested for the guinea pigs’ stuffed piggy! That was fun…I just love those little guys! No clouds here – just blue sky but I think it’s gonna be a lot warmer than its’ been. More rain for you guys wouldn’t be so bad though – then your Mom won’t have to water her gardens!!

      Love, Sammy

  2. Congratulations on your awards Sammy! I think number 7 on that list must have made you feel very special.
    Thank you very much for thinking of me, I’m thrilled. Now I’m going to put on my cutest face to try to get my biped’s help with my acceptance speeches – she’s very behind on this, it won’t do!

    • Oh I’m POSITIVE if you look at your biped with those great big eyes and give her a big slurpy sloppy kiss she’ll be HAPPY to work on your acceptance speeches! And YES #7 does make me feel special….very.

    • Hi Cody and Miss Caren! A reminder to you Cody to take extra good care of your Mommy today. OK? Thanks for the concats on my new award too. My Mom says she probably got her big sister back for the pigs feet thing by being a brat next time big sister had to babysit little sister! HAHA My poor Mom has yucky eyesight – it’s a good thing the master bathroom is VERY CLOSE to her side of the bed so she doesn’t have to travel far at night without her glasses on! 😀 😀 😀 😀

  6. Concatulations on your award, Sammy! That was gracious of you to pass it onto your human – I would never have passed one onto mine! She’s used to getting no credit!

    • Hi Sparkle….well, we don’t want to SPOIL our humans after all….they might start to “expect” these little treats we toss them – I just thought I’d be extra nice to my Mom since she’s been spoiling me rotten for twelve years now. 😀 😀 😀

    • Hi Nerissa!! Thanks a bunch. I’m pretty psyched about the award too….AND I’m glad that my suggested name for the guinea pigs’ little pal was the winning one!

      • Before I opted out of the award thing, I was thinking of creating the ginger cat award. Only one to be awarded at a time and passed on to blogs where a ginger cat featured. But maybe there should just be a ginger cat bloggers’ badge that alerts visitors to the blog’s cat. it could be the same background and a different picture for each blog.

        • Oh I think that’s a lovely idea Isobel…there are a lot of gingers out in the blogosphere – you and I aren’t the only ones who happen to think they’re special apparently!

    • Hi Calie! Thanks a bunch. I was just reading Nellie’s post – I guess you and Nellie are planning to PAWTY down in Texas and are looking for escorts???? I knew Nellie was a PAWTY animal but didn’t know you were too….I have no doubt the two of you will have a blast in Texas with no shortage of Texan mancats to dance you around the floor!

  8. Wow, a HUGE Congratulations on your new awards!! I laughed out loud when I read about the pigs feet in the mashed potatoes! Though I know you didn’t think that was funny AT ALL. Was she playing a joke or getting even? You deserve all those wonderful awards displayed on your blog. You’re the best!

    • Hi Trish….Sam’s napping so I’m answering your comment for him (!). My sister Carol used to get a big charge out of teasing me. All these years later the pigs feet thing is hilarious but at the time – NOT SO MUCH! Sam’s getting an awful lot of “bling” isn’t he! Pretty soon his head won’t git through the door!
