An Award; Received and Bestowed


Arkansas Patti was kind enough to give me this award. She got it from a blog friend in Finland who is called Blue. Don't you love how blogging can bring together such diverse people and make friends of us all? I surely do. If Patti and I understand it correctly, it means "the blog friend" award - called the Tunnustus award. I am proud to call Patti my blog friend, and I welcome her gift to me.

I am supposed to pass it on to two other people. Since I still have to pass on another award to fifteen others, this is a tall order for me. I am working a lot more than I had been earlier this spring, and I have less time to spend on this machine. I will start with passing this award to the following, and as time permits, I will get busy on the list for the other awards.

One of my earliest blog friends was Naomi, who writes at Here in the Hills. Naomi is a person of eclectic talents: she has been a Broadway actress, an artist, a singer, a songwriter, a playwright and now she is a writer. She doesn't post as often as I'd like - but her detailed posts are worth waiting for, since her life has been more exciting that any three or four of us put together. Her current series on her summer in France is wonderful to read, and illustrated with good photos of the people and places she saw then. I recommend, if you don't already know Naomi, that you go and read that series, if nothing else. It might make a convert of you!

A blog friend I met through Naomi's comments is Shephard, who writes at Shephard's Alley. He is colorful, intelligent, amazingly well-rounded for a younger person, and I love his outlook on life, which is always kind and gentle. He makes very astute observations about himself, as well as others, and he is a cat lover - as is Naomi. That seems to be a prerequisite for me.....LOL. Shephard is traveling a lot lately, and also doesn't post often, but when he does - the photos are usually great and the commentary colorful. Check them out - you'll be glad you did.

Congrats, and of course, well-deserved! You are exceptional in the blogging neighborhood and I mean that most sincerely. I'll trot around to see the new recipients, too.

Your fox! I would strongly suggest you keep the cat in until she has left the area with her kits trailing behind- maybe another month or so. We had red fox in Ann Arbor and make no mistake- if they are feeding children they are bold and aggressive in a way that is uncharacteristic for them at other times of the year. You probably heard this (I haven't read the comments yet for that post) but sometimes coyote urine, which you can buy online and in feed stores, is a smelly deterrent but our experience suggests the cat should be in while the fox are about. xoxox
