Although the award comes with rules, I hope Julia will understand that I break rules. I'm supposed to reveal seven things about my life. I've pretty well run out of things to reveal about my life. Maybe just one thing. That would be that I've stayed at a very posh apartment at a place in London named, "Dolphin Square." Dolphin Square has been the scene of a certain chap from the House of Lords getting caught on video with a couple of prostitutes as he allegedly snorts coke. I can assure you I'm not the dude from the House of Lords who then proceeded to pose in a bra of one of the prostitutes.
A rule also states that I should pass on the award to other bloggers. Being in my usual dilemma, if you like the award, grab the photo and enjoy.
Thanks again, Julia. Stay special, my kind friend.
According to the rules of the award, I'm supposed to at least tell you three reasons how my blog helps others. Okay, let me think about that....*twiddles thumbs.*
1: My transparency about my mental health issues has created a sense of empathy for those who relate but feel uncomfortable discussing their own mental health concerns.
2: My blog is proof positive that my mental illness is only a small part of who I am. Something for the reader who is struggling to think about in their own life.
3: My blog shows that a dog can take over and "pawblish" the valuable lessons that our animal friends have to teach us.
I realise I'm suppose to forward on this award. Once again, the dilemma is that I just don't who to forward it to without somebody wondering why I overlooked them.
This means that I shall now thank Alex who is, without question, one of the kindest, most interactive bloggers out there. If for some reason you have never visited Alex's site, here it is, Alex J. Cavanaugh. Thanks again, Alex, it's my honour to know you, good sir.
Bish, if you didn't know, is an accomplished author of several middle grade books and one young adult themed book. You can find out all the info about Bish at her blog, which you can visit here, Bish Denham.
Thanks to Bish. Happy writing to you, my illustrious friend. You might note my ongoing theme of not actually obeying the rules to the awards. My apologies for that.
I shall now take this opportunity to thank the wonderful, kind and caring, Yolanda, for considering me for such an award. Thanks for that, Yolanda.
Yes indeed, the theme continues because I'm now supposed to mention seven facts about me. Yikes, the fact total keeps rising. Anyway, the fact is that I have no fact to fact about with. I know that Yolanda will understand. Yolanda has taught me all about "Flash Fiction". Now that I really know the true meaning, I shall keep my clothes on. The Naked Blogger is another story......
To end this feast of awards, to no surprise at all, I shall also not forward on the award due to previously mentioned dilemmas that the awards cause.
If for reasons beyond my comprehension, you've never been to Yolanda's blog site, here it is, DEFENDING THE PEN.
Yolanda, you know you have my total respect and admiration. A truly remarkable lady who embraces the magic that is the written word.
Thanks to all five bloggers who thought about me. I appreciate your ongoing support and kindness.
The comments section is switched off. I'm trying to play catch-up in blogsville and having the comments switched off will help.
Thank you and I'm outta' here.....................................................................................
