Duet of Awards


I am blessed with two more award nominations! Wow! I am very

honored and pleased with this Duet of Awards passed to me.

The first one for the “Wonderful Team Member Readership Award”

was given to me by two of my friends! Another ‘duet!’

My fellow blogger, Julie, can be found at:


She is amusing in her musings and has me in ‘stitches’ from

the titles and zany subject matters. She may claim to be

a ‘workaholic’ but she makes plenty to time to write and

give us some thoughts to chuckle about! She also has artistic

flair in her photographic ability. Check her out!

The other giver of this same award, Jane, has been around a

while longer than Julie, in her visits and my reading her,

too. I recommend her due to her wide variety of humorous

posts, everthing from cats (she dresses them up occasionally)

and exercise, (she gets the athletic gear on to watch t.v.

and eat M & M’s!) I promise you will laugh at her stories.


I received the “Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award,” from

Jane, too. I have been trying my best to pass any and all award

nominations to other new bloggers. After all, spreading the

happiness is what this is all about! It helps to encourage

us all to keep going, sometimes it also brings new readers into

our ‘fold.’

If you wish to see the awards, please check out the above

writers who still follow the rules to the letter. Mostly, in

my opinion, I feel that we need to mention the ones who gave

us the awards and list more who deserve the nominations, too.

Nominees for these two awards may choose to pick up their

awards and have either only once been nominated or never before

on this blog!

Here is my list:

1. Fun and humor found here.


2. Polly includes beauty in her pairings of photos

and poetry:


3. Italian stories and heart shown here:


4. Photographs with such artistic flair:


5. Similar path, much humor and younger by 10 years:


6. If you haven’t read about her teaching or her “Bloke”…

you will enjoy this writer:


7. Her original drawings of Shadow People and interesting

thoughts shared drew me to this blog:


8. Chronic Conditions and Life Lessons:


9. Conversing with a friend who shares about her

Dad’s losing his memory and more:


10. This is a tranquil place to read and enjoy!


11. Precious stories…


12. To finish up the dozen of new or relatively new

fellow bloggers, I suggest:


13. Another one added to make it a “Baker’s Dozen”

of 13:


My Favorite Musical Duets:

1. Anything sung by Sonny and Cher, they were my ‘idols’

as a young person. I liked their television show and

enjoyed the variety of talent featured there.

2. Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, “Empire State of Mind.”

3. Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, “Islands in the Stream.”

4. Karen and Richard Carpenter, “Top of the World.”

5. Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney, “Ebony and Ivory.”

6. Andy Griffith and Brad Paisley, “Waiting on a Woman.”

7. Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney, “The Girl, She’s Mine.”

8. Aretha Franklin and George Michael, “I Knew You Were Waiting for Me.”

Thanks again to Jane and Julie for my award nominations and hope we

all will be singing and dancing in the future together!!


About reocochran

I am experiencing crazy and hapless adventures in dating that may interest people over fifty. I am now approaching 62 later this year and enjoy taking photographs, incorporating stories or poetry on my blog. I have many old posts which are informative and written like essays. I have several love stories collected from family and friends. Even strangers spill their stories, since I am a grown version of the girl next door. I have been trying to live a healthy lifestyle with better food selections and active hiking and walking. I have written four children's books and illustrated them. They are not published but a battered women's shelter used one about neglect and abuse for their children's program and a 4H group used my "Kissing a Bunny is like saying a Prayer" as a coloring book. Please comment or respond so I may get a chance to know you. Sincerely, Robin

    • Thanks, Brenda! I am so glad you liked my list of duets and also, fellow bloggers, too! Hugs back, Sister of my Heart! It warms my heart that we got close, despite our distance, busy lives and how our paths go separately right now…

      • Robin, I always think friendships have waves like the ocean, and they carry you closer, then apart, then closer. The more followers I have, the more I follow, the more I cannot even make a dent in my reader, but I do try!! I miss my friends when I don’t see them in my reader for a few days. I’ve been working on a database with links but it’s an overwhelming project, and I don’t know if I will ever finish. Meanwhile, I’m limping along as best as I can. Hugs, Sister of my Heart! Brenda

  1. Thanks for a lovely description of my blog 🙂
    Robin, I just love that you like “Empire State of Mind”- you are one cool lady! Congrats on the awards 🙂

    • Jane, I am so glad you feel I am ‘cool!’ I listen to all kinds of music, liked the Grammy Award shows and also, when I can afford to, go to live concerts! I tend to use that word, ‘cool’ a lot! Thank you for choosing me to be nominated, my dear! Smiles back at you!

    • You were most welcome for the awards! I found this special nugget of thanks in my ‘pending approval’ dungeon! I am so surprised that we are connected at all, Colleen! This filtering system is so challenging that it gets on my nerves to find friends here in the dungeon! Thanks for staying in touch! Smiles, Robin

    • Jill, I am so glad you said you wrote a book while listening to the Carpenters! I include them in my “Rainy Days and Mondays” post, I finally got written and published today! I also enjoyed the playfulness and the long friendship that Sonny and Cher had. I heard they stayed in touch, shared their child together, now he is known as Chaz, right? (Wasn’t she an adorable Chastity, too?) Someday, I will have to read your book… Thanks for these comments, Jill!

    • This is so strange, going back into my dungeon of pending approval comments and finding yours! I know we have been connected so why doesn’t wordpress know this? You are so patient with me, thanks for being there. I am often just a sporadic, hit or miss, blogger. I appreciated this congratulations and please accept my belated reply! Smiles, Robin
