Caturday Award Catch-Up

Standard

Happy Caturday everybody in Blogland !

Yesterday after talking it up about my Mom’s mystery novel I included a Pee Ess that today I’d thank my beautiful friend Misaki for honoring me with a couple of awards.  SO, that’s what I’m going to do!

She very sweetly nominated me for two awards……..one of them I already have but the other is a “new one” on me……..Here they are:

shine-on-awardThis is the one I already had but it’s just so beautiful I’m reposting it…………there’s something kind of magical about the artwork on this don’t you think??

dragonsloyaltyawardThis is a new one – the Dragon’s Loyalty Award – and it’s quite pretty too isn’t it?  Very colorful and who doesn’t like a dragon???!!!  I like to watch dragonflies in my yard – that’s close right?

My awards on the side of my page go ON and ON and ON – and each and every one of them are important to me in some special way.   Mostly for me it means that I have friends and they think my blog is worthy of some kind of recognition……that feels great don’t you think?

Since I already received the Shine On some while ago, I thought I’d comply with the rules of the Dragon’s Loyalty Award (well, MOSTLY comply anyway!!!).

DRAGON’S LOYALTY AWARD RULES

This award is to be given to people who are loyal to your blog or to someone you follow loyally.  You should:

  • Display the award
  • Announce you’ve won it and link back to the person who nominated you
  • Give the award to 15 nominees
  • Post seven interesting things about your blog

Well, I intend to display it, have announced it and linked back to Misaki above, and now for the 7 interesting things about my blog then my nominees last!

  1. I think it’s interesting that Mom chose to let ME speak in my blog rather than her being the “voice” of the blog (although I do allow her to talk once in a while!)
  2. I think it’s interesting that every week I try to give my followers a challenge (that darned Tuesday Teaser that drives you all crazy!)
  3. I think it’s interesting that I blog EVERY SINGLE day instead of once a week (although my Mom doesn’t necessarily agree since she spends LOTSA time at the keyboard helping me!)
  4. I think it’s interesting that I have followers who are birds, fish, dogs, cats, mini pigs, guinea pigs, AND even humans without pets at all!
  5. I think it’s interesting that my blog is read by bloggers who live all over the world – even as far away as Bali!
  6. I think it’s interesting that I’ve managed to list FIVE things that are interesting about my blog so far.
  7. I think it’s interesting that I can’t think of ONE LAST thing that’s interesting about my blog.  (I know – I’m cheating aren’t I??)

Nominations?  Well, here’s where I’m going to stray from the rules.  I’d like any of you who don’t have the Dragon’s Loyalty award but who would like to TRY (notice I said TRY since that’s all I was able to manage) to comply to take the award for yourselves!

If you don’t know Misaki everybody (and who doesn’t know her?  I’m not sure anyone doesn’t know her!!!!)……….but if you don’t, please visit her.  She’s beautiful, very generous, very happy, and she loves her Mum and Dad a bunch.  Just like I love mine!

Now – onward to Caturday……………..which means (as you all know) BACON!   BACON, BACON, BACON (I just enjoy saying that word almost as much as eating it!).

See you all tomorrow for Silent Sunday!!!

Pee Ess………..Don’t forget Henry’s birthday is May 31st AND he’s having a birthday cake decorating contest !   Also, don’t forget Odin’s birthday is June 1st!  So many pawties!

Happy Caturday Hugs to Everybody……………..Sammy

  2. Congratulations! We love the tuesday teaser – we have fun and we learn something about special places and now we know that 37 minutes cooking time is toooo much for spaghetti, but what are 37 minutes when you can win an original Sammy hug? Have a funny bacon-caturday!

    • Hi Easy my main man! Hope your staff isn’t having to hobble around too much since the female staff member is “Uggless” and has an ankle injury!! You are my BEST Teaser guesser by far Easy. I’ve just got to get in the habit of looking harder at my pix before posting to make sure your “Guide to Garbage Cans Around the World” won’t come in handy when you’re guessing…… Hee Hee

      Happy Bacon Caturday to you too!

  6. ConCats on your splendiforous awards, Sammy. Very well deserved. I think I would like bacon, though mum doesn’t eat it!! I did accidentally eat a sausage roll once! Would that be the same ? 😉

    • Austin I think a sausage roll would be quite delish although I’ve never had sausage before…..I should imagine it’s similar but bacon is nice and crunchy and salty and……gosh……wish I had some right this minute!
