Come on person. Would you get them out of there? You’re not going to have any room left in your computer for my blog posts. Person, you’re starting to act like a hoarder. Come on, you can get them out. One at a time if you have to.
Person, why are you crying. I see tears coming out of your eyes. You didn’t lose them, did you? Those things you call files. Did you forget where you put the one they’re in? Maybe it’s under the bed.
You what? You’re crying because you’re touched? Person, I think you’re touched in the head. Come on. I know you know where they are.
Is that what it is? You do know where they are? You’re crying because so many of my blogging friends – who have really good blogs themselves, have given me awards?
Did you put my blog roll up yet to recognize all my great blogging friends? Well, get unbusy person. And where’s my Facebook page you promised me?
Okay, I can do that.
My person asked me if I would honor all of the great blogs who nominated me for these awards. I know I’m supposed to pass some of these forward, and I’m trying to get my person to unbusy herself and put up a blogroll for me since I have so many good blogging friends I can’t pick anymore.
So here goes.
A couple weeks ago I received the Awesome Blogger Award from Lilly the Cat. Lilly’s blog has some awesome cat cartoons drawn by Urooj Grundmann. Even if you’re a dog I think you’ll like these cat cartoons. They’re lots of fun.
Three of my blogging friends have awarded me the One Lovely Blog Award. I’m not sure how lovely I am but I have a lot of fun on my blog.
I received this award from Sunshine at Simply Charming. She sometimes has some great poetry and photos on her blog, but my person says she especially likes Sunshine’s personal stories. Recently she wrote about her adopted daughter and my person had those tears in her eyes again.
I also received this award from Cee at Cee’s Life Photography. Cee has some wonderful photography on her site, much of it from Oregon where she lives. My person says she has an affinity for Oregon because her brother lives there and she grew up in the neighboring state of Washington. Cee has also written some very touching, very personal stories that have been incredible to read and can give hope to people who have been through or are going through something similar.
2 Brown Dawgs also nominated me for this award – but they are really 3 brown dawgs now with the addition of their super cute puppy Freighter who recently joined Thunder and Storm. These dogs are all Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. The blog has wonderful photographs of the dogs at home, training, and hunting. My person and I have learned a lot about what hunting dogs do and it has been quite an education. They really work hard.
The Creative Capture Award came from Just Ramblin’ Pier. This was a real surprise as it was awarded for the photos I share on my blog and came from an awesome photographer. I love all the photos on this blog, but especially the ones of Stella the Newfoundland.
My friend Vanilla Bean from the Philippines nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Vanilla Bean is one of the cutest dogs I know, but not only do you get to see all the great photos, you hear about all of Vanilla Bean’s adventures. Right now Vanilla Bean is overseeing a whole lot of puppies that were born into the household.
My friend Sunshine at Simply Charming also nominated me for this last award. This award is especially meaningful to me my person because it means that maybe I am touching people’s lives in a meaningful way through my blog. And all I thought I was doing was having fun.
If you’d like to know more about what the HUG Award is you can find the info at A Hope for Today.
I hope everybody will click on at least one of these links and make a new blogging friend today.
Person, I don’t think anyone’s going to read down this far.

Awards. Oh. No. We remember them from years past. And were never any good at passing them on. Or playing by the rules. But you deserve them cos you have a top blog with lots of pals and thats probably what matters as much.
