May I use the excuse I swallowed sips out of
Alice’s cups of tea? The result being a kind
of time-warp or life-changing experience
that happened due to this extremely
odd and strange adventure?
May I say that there are far too many friends
out there who are on my “To Do” list? Along
with my adorable six grandchildren who may
resemble the “Munchkins.” Maybe this is really
just my coming back from Oz via a Tornado or
another exciting, rare weather extravaganza?
Oh, dear! I am going to tell you that there
are so many who recognize my apologies,
those who have been stuck in Spam-land,
those who I regularly read and follow, but
sometimes miss and don’t comment to you.
Then, there are the ones who are kind and
generous, who mention my name or blog,
who also give me nominations for fun awards.
I have a long list of thank you’s to hand out.
I wish to give a BIG Thank You
to all my followers!
You make me smile,
just by knowing you
are out there.
I love to see the little flags
and countries you all live in.
Along with reading
the comments and
pictures I see of your
faces or the images

Also, if you like to look back for the award
post in November when Amanda awarded
me a nomination for “One Lovely Blog Award.”
I found a long-lost daughter who is very
creative and could easily fit into my clan.
You ‘had me,’ when you asked me, “Mom?”
Smiles to my new girl!
A wonderful friend and very artistic person
who brightens her posts with colorful, bright
and beautiful creations is Pauline King.
When I posted my January calendar
I shared all the activities, events and
holidays, including a few birthdays.
Pauline featured the fact that Rod Stewart’s
and Tom Selleck’s birthdays made her happy,
sending some of her readers to visit my post.
Thank you so much, Pauline! Check her out:

Brenda just mentioned me on her blog that has
amazing poems, haiku’s with folk and fairy tales.
She uses her own original photographs and lots
of creativity to make her place a warm, inviting
and friendly place to visit. Brenda surprised me
with a nomination for the
“Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.”
Thank you very much, Brenda!

Now, I shall think of a few people who may have
never been presented nominations and suggest
each to pick any one of the three special awards:
“One Lovely Blog Award,”
“The Versatile Blogger Award,”
“Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.”
Each of the above awards has its own special designed
logo or patch to find, which leads me to remind you
to go to those who passed the awards to me, should
you wish to display the special and deluxe emblems.

we don’t get evidence
we are following
in our Reader.
This is what happens,
