Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Recently I received this award from fellow author Gale Martin,

Gale thank you so much this is the first time my blog has won this award. Things like this do make me smile. It is nice to know people read my ramblings.

Well as with some awards come rules.

Here are the Rules of the Award Blog:

-Display the award logo on your blog post.
-Link back to the person who nominated you.
-State 7 things about yourself.
-Nominate 15 bloggers to the award. (Rules can be broken and this is one of them. Do what works for you)
-Notify those bloggers of the nomination by linking to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by ping back. With so many forms of communication this can be adjusted to however you notify the winners.

Seven things about me

1- I love sweet ice tea. As a New Englander raised on hot tea this was a true treasure when I moved to the South.

2- I can’t grow pansies. It does not matter if they are seeds, seedlings to full-grown plants. I can grow just about any plant around unless it is a pansy. The plant just does not like me.

3-I am an avid sports fan much to the frustration of my family.

4- I am left-handed.

5- I am of French origins.

6- My birds own me I can be honest about that.

7-I have two short stories published in an anthology. Something I am still proud off.

Now that was not so bad was it?

Ok now to think who to pass this on to. I will be mixing it up. Some of the links below are to people I love to hear from to my new followers. I want to thank them both for reading the topics I write about.
