Now then, back to the award. Al Diaz, over at, Father Dragon Writes, very thoughtfully bestowed the "Semper Fidelis award" upon me. In the spirit of the meaning of the award, I do try to maintain an always faithful, always loyal demeanour. I know I've been blessed getting to know Al and I know you may well have been blessed visiting such an open, honest, thoughtful and clever blog. Al, I'm most appreciative of receiving the award. Thank you, my friend.
Oh no, here are the rules :
1 : Add the Semper Fidelis Award logo somewhere on your blog.
2: Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
3 : Nominate five bloggers whose loyalty, friendship you value and you consider being part of your "pack of wolves".
4 : Post something special for each one of your nominees and dedicate it to them. Such as a quote, saying, poem, picture. Anything you think would pertain to that person.
5 : Let the nominees know that you've nominated them.
Okay, those were the rules. I hate rules. Now I have to pick five people and hope I don't upset anybody I might have overlooked. Such a dilemma and please forgive me. Pretty please. Here goes......
Ah yes, the ever smiling, Tammy Theriault. I've had the great privilege of much good natured interaction with Tammy, via an interview and quirky comments. And beyond the joking around, lies a sincere, kind lady who is the epitome of awesomeness. If you have never visited Tammy's site, why not? You can find the happy, smiley Tammy, here, Tammy Theriault
Tammy, I dedicate the award to you and much success with your recently finished book, "Living RunAway".
CindyLu's Muse. Kim, I treasure your friendship and I'm wishing that your life continues to move on in a more positive way. I dedicate this award to you.
Elephant's Child Sue, my kind friend, I dedicate this award to you.
That's five folks, right? Yes, I really hate this dilemma. Who to pick and not hurt anyone's feelings. And yes, they are all ladies. What can I say. Only this, those who have been included in my list must not feel obliged to acknowledge the award. It's entirely up to you, ladies. Thank you all for your friendship and it's party time at my place!
Am I now going to go on a rant? Of course not. This means I wont go on a rant about blogfests, or bloghops, or blog parties, or reflection posts about reflection posts about the amazing alphabet challenge. This also means that I will most definitely not rant about the fact that whenever a bloghop or whatever is on, virtually my entire blog list is on that bloghop theme. How much of the same stuff repeated, over and over and over again, can my frazzled brain take.. The good thing about those themed posts is I can copy and paste my comment to each person involved in the blogfest, or bloghop, or blog party, or book tour, or whatever..."Argggggggghhhhh! I feel better now!"
Before this posting starts to ahem, dragon, it will suddenly end!
