The Versatile Blogger Award

I'm excited.

One of my favorite bloggers, Michael, who writes the "Lazy Thoughts from a Boomer" blog, has bestowed me with an honor.

The Versatile Blogger Award.

I'm honored and tickled pink - thank you, Michael!

The award comes with some rules. 
  • Thank the person who gave you this award  -  Easy Peasy - Thank you, Michael!
  • Share 7 things about yourself - I can do that!
  • Pass the award along to 15 who you have recently discovered and who you think fantastic for whatever reason (I'm going to copy my friend Jen who writes the wonderful blog "Jen's Book Thoughts," and cheat a little. And for the same reason Jen did.  We must be hanging out at the same places because a lot of the folks on Michael's list would have been included on my list - so many of my favorites are already recognized).  
But.  As time goes on I think I'll bend the rules a little more and pass this along kinda piecemeal when people are least expecting it.  Which may mean more or less than 15 people could be receiving this at some point in the future.  Is this a terrible thing?  My bending the rules like this?  I'm sorry!  I can't help it.  Truly!  I refused to color inside the lines when I was growing up, and I guess I just haven't moved beyond that.

But I can share seven things about myself.  They're probably not going to be new things to most of you though.  I seem to have very few secrets.  I need to work on this and become more of a woman of mystery, don't I?!

1.  I was a very clumsy child.  My parents, being concerned about how clumsy I was, mentioned this to our family doctor.  Dr. Wolff suggested they sign me up for dance lessons.  I took tap and I took ballet.  For a lot of years.  Unfortunately - I'm still clumsy.

2.  I am mommy to Harley the Wonder Corgie.

3.  I am wifelett to Sir Donald of the Loom.

4.  Two of my very best gal pals are Sissyfriss Sockmonkey and Lou Lou Skiptoo.

5.  I'm a lot like my mom.

6.  I like to bake.

7.  A sunrise, especially at the beach, is one of my favorite things ever; 'course, sunset at the beach is pretty special too.

 This was fun!  Thanks again, Michael!!

Well done, Kaye. And you are very deserving of this. I have to tell you, I love the ballerina picture and the dueling giant glasses images of you and mom. Thanks very much for this.

Patricia Stoltey said...

Congratulations on the award, Kaye. I love that you did your list in photos. My own Versatile Blogger Award arrived today courtesy of Cat at Words from the Woods, so I'm very tempted to "steal" your lovely idea and do my own photo list. :)

Vicki Lane said...

Congratulations, Kaye -- well deserved!

I had to take ballet for the same reason. And it didn't work for me either.

Earl Staggs said...

Congrats, Kaye Darlin'. You deserve every award there is. I'm disappointed, tho. I already knew most of the seven things about you. I want seven more.

And, btw, I took tap, but not ballet.

Mason Canyon said...

Congratulations on the award, so well deserved. Loved the photos and finding out more about you.

Hi Guys!!

This was fun! I'm so happy to have been a recipient - Michael, you're the best!

Patricia - I love these photo blogs! I stole the idea from Vicki. Her blog is a must see for me every morning. Not only does she write beautifully, she's a very talented photographer.

Oh. Well, hey Vicki - we were just talking about you! This is a hoot that we both took ballet for the same reasons and failed at it! Wonder what we did wrong?!

Earl Darlin'! Hey! Where have you been?! I've been missing you. You have thrown down a challenge and I'm gonna see if I can meet it by coming up with 7 things you don't know about me. Give me a few days! DID you take tap?! Y'all - this man is the dancer in the crowd, no kidding.

Mason, thank you! You be watching your site - you may have to come up with 7 things about your own dern self pretty soon!

Kaye, I believe it all except the clumsy part! You seem very graceful to me.

oh Jill - you're just always looking the other day when I trip over my own feet! Pfftttt (just ask Donald).
