Significant Award

Well, apparently I spoke too soon.
In my last post, I mentioned that during my lifetime I only received "insignificant awards," such as:
Well, I am happy to inform all of you that since that post, I have received a "significant award" that has nothing to do with my freakish jumping skills:
or the fact that I am a towering inferno of beauty:
My calculated plot to take over the blogging world is finally starting to take root.   (Something sinister won't plant itself).
My pal over at Randoom Blog! has so graciously passed on the Liebster Award to me! I would like to thank him because this is the second award he has given to me.  If I understand awards, and I am pretty sure I don't, you must reasonably deserve them.  I feel that there are so many more deserving  blogs than mine, but will accept it with gracious humility.

So, like other "Liebster"  recipients before me, I will accept it properly according to the rules:

1.  Link back to the person who gave you the award.  Please show your love to my friend over at Randoom Blog!.  He is a very funny fellow and I love reading his posts!

2.  Pick 5 deserving people and notify them on their blogs.

This was my conundrum.  I don't feel comfortable at all picking from so many great blogs! It has to be blogs with less than 200 members so that narrows it down a bit.


Making important decisions is not something you can run away from like paying your cell phone bill or a crying baby.
I actually have to do something! So, I sat down and had to choose from over a hundred blogs that I love and have narrowed it down to 5:

    I.  Pickleope.com--He makes me smile, makes me laugh and is a great commenter on my posts.

   II.  Stephanie at Claybaboons.com--She does with clay what I do with drawings only she is good at it.  She has something that is very original and she is actively involved in my blog.  Thank you Stephanie!

  III.  Youngmanbrown.com--I just love him.  He has a dire seriousness about his posts, yet trims it with funny.  I don't event think he does it on purpose and I see so much potential in this blog.  By potential, I mean he's awesome!


  IV.  mayorgia.blogspot.com--She makes me laugh...a lot!  Also, very good about commenting on my blog.

   V.  Brett at transformednonconformist.blogspot.com--I love how Brett describes the ongoings of his day.  Maybe I am just nosey or maybe it is how he pulls me into his little world and keeps me there.  Check him out!

Like I said, the worst part is that I couldn't choose you all, because I would have.  You have become my second family and I love how you accept me and my blog into your lives.

3.  Post the award on your blog and spread the love.

Well, to you five, I am passing this lovely award onto you for you to place on your blog and I hope it means as much to you as it does to me.


And as for the crying babies, just remember that they are here for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to replace us all. submit to reddit

  22. Congratulations on the award there. As for the babies, by running away from them when they cry, they learn to become more independent and take better care of themselves. Ultimately, by abandoning a baby, you teach it to be more awesome when it's older.

    That's what I'll tell the judge at least.

  27. Read the one about gator and wetlands. No good deed goes unpunished. Loved your blog and pics. Haven't tried to blow up any federal building for a long time. An accordion and an alligator. It's such a common sight. I can't understand the uproar.
