From the Cat Choir

inspiring2What an inspiration to be nominated by silence & honeysuckle for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!  Woohoo!!  It feels great to get a nod from another blogger, whether it’s a “like” or a thoughtful comment or an award with a really pretty badge for the ole blog.  I love “events” like this that promote camaraderie and community among bloggers.

Like all blessings, this one comes with responsibilities, which include:

*Display the award logo on your blog

* Link back to the person who nominated you

* State seven things about yourself

* Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them

* Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements

Seven things about me:

Hmm.

1. I’m like a deer in headlights when asked to list facts about myself.

Um

2. I’m pretty sure I’ve been hit on by Studs Terkel and William Shatner.

3. When that happened I was a LOT younger.

4. My kids still talk about the time I left the Disney World tickets back home in Michigan and the time I drove off with the metal tube belonging to the bank.

5. My four cats are a perfect choir: one soprano, one alto, one tenor, and one bass/baritone.

6. When I was a kid everything I wanted to be started with an A: author, actress, archeologist, architect, archer.

7.  I know what you’re thinking.  No, not like mind-reading.  I was talking about #6.  You know, another word beginning with A.

I’m supposed to limit the list to 15 bloggers?  Sigh.  It’s so difficult to narrow down!  OK, these bloggers inspire me a lot and so do more than are on this list!

1.  Little Girl with a Big Pen

2. Writing the Girl

4.  We’ll Be the Last Ones to Let You Down
