MRMACRUM at Lost in the Bozone has passed on an award to me and I am very thankful for it. There are times when one hopes to get some award or memento of recognition and when it does come, it's a surprise.
MrMaCrum said he gave this to me for the following reason: "Just cuz he shares a Mainers dislike of strangers in his driveway." This is not a regional thing. One reason I dislike strangers coming up my driveway is that when I see a car coming, I think, "Oh good, a friend is here and we can sit and bullshit and have a cup of coffee." Or tea, one friend no longer drinks coffee, he drinks tea. But when they turn around in the yard and leave, you wonder why they drove in??
This one has rules of engagement. Simple rules thankfully. I am requested to pass it along to four other blogs I feel are deserving of recognition. Simple in the request maybe, but not so simple in the execution.
I have to agree that passing it on is not easy as so many blogs have already received this award. But here goes:
Gadfly and Dan'l at The Future Was Yesterday, not sure what the title of the blog means, but sometimes they make me laugh and sometimes they make me think.
Yellowdog Granny for her Stumbles and general attitude.
Nan at All The Good Names Were Taken, for her insight and humor.
