Thanks everyone for all the comments and concern. I appreciate it!
I had a bad reaction to the pain meds because I have a sinus infection. I’m so uncomfortable from the back spasms and the ankle throbbing that I assumed my head hurt in sympathy.
The back and ankle situation is a whole lot of blah-blah-blah and yada-yada-yada that I’m not even going to talk about it until I see the specialist on Thursday.
So – since I’m woozy and could pass out at any moment I decided to do what all the starlets do and hit the red carpet. I want to acknowledge some awards I’ve been given the past couple of weeks.
Just in case I do keel over I hope I fall at a flattering angle.
First – I want to thank KIMMIE for my blog mascot – “The Fork Goddess”
If only I looked like that in a clingy gown. As if that wasn’t enough Kimmie then gave me the:
Perfect Blend of Friendship Award – created by the effervescent CHUCK
I’m only going to spell out the rules that apply to giving credit to the person who created the award – that seems right. As for the how of passing them on - those rules just don’t compute with me.
I’m going to continue my new tradition of passing the award on to just one person. I’m all intimate like that.
I’d like to pass the Perfect Blend of Friendship award on to JENI – she was one of my very first blog friends and has always been incredibly supportive.
The next award comes from the wonderful MARY/the TEACH. I love Mary’s photos and her wonderful sense of humor and I’m thrilled that her Ruby Tuesday project grows each week.
Million Dollar Friend
This award comes with some lovely words from two of its creators:
"You are never a burden.. don't ever think that. Friends need each other to pick them up when they are down and I would do nothing less. "Dawn Drover~ Twisted Sister*****
A Million Dollar Friend is the kind of person who instinctively knows what it means to be a good friend; this kind of person makes you look forward to the days ahead and fondly remember the days that have passed. - A Nice Place In The Sun*******
I’m passing the Million Dollar Friend on to JAY – BAILEY’S BUDDY. Jay was the very first person to recommend my blog to others, something I still can’t believe anyone does! Jay’s Wordzzle stories always make me smile, his Friday roundups are wonderful and his politics fill me with glee. And most of all Jay always responds with care and love.
I received 2 awards from DARYL. Daryl is a new friend who is an exceptionally talented photographer. She should be paid by NYC’s mayor for always showing the city at its best. Daryl is also very supportive of my political rants and I am touched by that. Through Daryl I have met some wonderful new people. I have also begun to delve into Black & White photography through Daryl's introduction to the team blog – THE WORLD IN BLACK AND WHITE
The Must See Award
Just Plain Fun – which Daryl created herself
I’m giving the Must See Award to FAYE’S PHOTOS. I think I found Faye through a comment on CG’s blog. I’m so glad I did – Faye’s photography is inspiration through a lens.
The Just Plain Fun award goes to QUIET RAGE. She is hilarious and angry all at once - which of course makes her delicious.
Last but not least there is the
Kick Ass Award
The award was created by MAMMA DAWG and even has its own club – check it out HERE
I received Kick Ass from PAGAN and from DIVAJOOD which is perfect since I found Jood through Pagan.
They have both become people I count on for good information and great entertainment. Pagan is art personified and Jood is an incredibly gifted writer. They are both great women to know.
I’m taking my pair of Kick Ass awards and giving them to a pair of bloggers I like a lot.
PATTI is one of the most positive, upbeat people – she makes me feel good just by leaving a short comment. Her creative photography is wonderful – she always spreads her wings and tries a new flight pattern. I admire her a lot.
RALPH gives good comment! He always has something funny or useful or helpful to say. He is thoughtful and knowledgeable. Ralph also comes up with great lines which I then steal and claim as my own.
So there ya have it! I’m off now to chuck my panties and climb into a limo. Hope no one is out there with a camera!
