Hi Peeps…………………..well I’m here to tell you that even this old guy occasionally still gets a blog award that he has NOT already received. I kind of thought I had them all and it’s been a while since any “made the rounds” but I was quite excited to receive TWO blog awards this week from a Romance Writer who follows my blog – Diane Wickles! BUTTTT, before I tell you all about that, check THIS out – GUESS WHO IS CAT OF THE WEEK AT BIONIC BASIL’S ????? That’s right – yours truly…………….. CLICK HERE ! Thanks Basil for making me the star this week. How cool!
NOW………..What are the awards I got you ask (you DID ask – right??)……………….well they are the “REAL NEAT BLOG AWARD” and the “PREMIO DARDOS AWARD”. Here’s what she sent me for the “rules” on both awards………………
The rules for the Real Neat Blog Award:
- Put award logo in post.
- Answer 7 questions by person who nominated you (my questions are at the end of this post).
- Nominate any number of bloggers (with their links).
- Let these bloggers know you nominated them by commenting on their blogs.
Rules for the Premio Dardos Award:
Premio dardos means “prize darts” in Spanish. It is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.
- Post award on your blog with the name of the person who gave you the award and link to their blog.
- Pass the award onto 15 worthy blogs.
Needless to say, I’m particularly interested in the Premio Dardos because it has a lot to do with my actual writing of my blog (which of course I do myself without Mom’s help because I not only have THUMBS so can operate the keyboard well, but I’m exceptionally SMART………you knew that, right????).
Here’s what the awards look like:
So since it’s been a while since I’ve done this, HERE are my Mom’s answers (in Red) to the questions that Diane asked for her recipients of the “Real Neat Blog Award” !
- Would you rather read a book or watch tv? What are some of your favorites? Read a book…..I love all thrillers/mysteries….Jonathan Kellerman, Kathy Reichs, Agatha Christie – and trust me the list goes on and on and on.
- Are you a morning person or a night owl? Morning – definitely – we get up at 4AM every day!
- Where have you traveled and do you have a favorite place/trip? Have traveled extensively in Europe and the USA – lived both in Europe and Far East……favorite place is Venice, Italy
- Do you have any pets? One very spoiled 15 year old, polydactyl, ginger tabby cat
- Do you believe in romance? Yes….totally
- Would you rather get a bouquet of flowers or a bottle of wine? Can’t I have BOTH??? If not, I’ll take the wine please – a nice light Prosecco
- If you won the lottery what is the first thing you would buy? I wouldn’t buy anything as a “first thing” I’d give a huge pile of it to the shelter in Sammy’s name then I’d probably do some remodeling of our house and re-landscaping of our yard! Selfish? Maybe but this is where Sam, my husband and I intend to STAY FOREVER.
I’m going to offer this blog award (since there’s no requirement as to how many) to anyone who would like to fulfill the rules of acceptance………..which are easy peasy. Some of you do awards and some don’t but ALL of you in my mind deserve the award so please take it if you want it!!!!
For the other award, “Premio Dardos”, I have put Diane Wickles link above but will repeat it here AND thank her again for the honor of nominating Sammy! No questions to answer. I’m also supposed to pass it on to 15 other bloggers and again, not knowing who wants awards and who doesn’t, I’ll leave it to you if you’d like to have it for your award collection!
Now, here are MY seven questions that should you choose to accept the Real Neat Blog Award, you will need to answer in your blog for ME! Got it????? (if you’re accepting the award and don’t have a pet, you can answer them for yourself, otherwise your pet should answer!)
- If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you want to live and why?
- What’s your all time FAVORITE gift you EVER received?
- What scares you the most?
- Do you think animals and humans reincarnate?
- Do you think there’s life on other planets?
- What’s your FAVORITE food?
- Do you enjoy OUTDOORS or being INDOORS the most?
There you have it kiddos……….I hope some of you decide to take the awards………..I’m serious when I say you ALL deserve them – you’re all my friends and I SO appreciate that you follow my humble little blog……………….you’re the BESTEST!
