Man, It's May - Award Winning Edition

Well, it seems that there actually was at least one person reading my little blog in the month of April and that has led to me winning a "major" award (as Ralphie's father says).


So, I've always wanted to be a mystery writer but that's not really what the award stands for.  You can read about that on the creator, Okoto Enigma's, blog.

In order to "qualify" I have to follow the rules...not significantly difficult for me unless you are ruling me not to take pictures at a concert, that I have a problem with.  Here goes:

Rule 1:  Put the award logo/image on your blog.  -- Done

Rule 2:  List the rules -- You're reading them.

Rule 3:  Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog. -- That would be Outside Perception, a really cool blogger who talked about movies during the A to Z.  I have several on my list that I need to watch thanks to him.  Thank you again for the nomination!

Rule 4:  Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.  -- See above.

Rule 5:  Tell your readers three things about yourself.  --

  • I have three sisters and all of our names start with the letter "J."
  • My first job was in the local library working as a "page" - that person who puts all the books away when you return them.
  • My current mission in life is to make someone smile every day.  (Did it work on you yet?)

Rule 6:  You have to nominate 10 to 20 people.  -- Do I even know 10 to 20 bloggers?  From the A to Z Challenge this year I came across these gems:


Outside Perception would have made the list as well, but he's the one who nominated me so...Of course if any of you don't have the time or inclination to participate, I totally understand.  No hard feelings and I'll still follow you!

Rule 7:  Notify them. -- You'll have to take my word for the fact that I went to each blog and commented on them to let them know.

Rule 8:  Ask your nominee any five questions of your choice, one weird or funny question.  My questions to answer were:

  • Tell us about something you used to believe only to find out it was incorrect.  
I used to believe it was possible to have too many scrapbooking supplies.  Now I know I was incorrect.  There are never enough!
  • If given the choice between cake or death...what would it be?
I'm trying to lose some weight right now so death...NOT!
  • What was your imaginary friend's name and what special skills did they have?
I had a little sister so I didn't have an imaginary friend.  I had a pest who wouldn't use their invisible powers :) (Love you sister).
  • What is your all time most watched movie?
In actual number of times watched I'll bet it is "A Muppet Christmas Carol."  I love that movie.
  • When (if) I ever have down time what would I do?  
See the answer to the first question.  When I have down time I am in my craft room.  That and/or reading books.  

So, the five questions for my nominees are:
  1.   Who is your favorite author?
  2.   How long have you been blogging?
  3.   Have you ever been nominated for a major award?
  4.   If you could play a musical instrument what would it be?
  5.   Who is Carmen Sandiego and why should I care where in the world he is?
  6.   Extra credit question, did I make you smile today?
Rule 9:  Add a link to my best post.  I don't know about best but I have a few favorites.  One is from the A to Z last year, the letter "Q" where I talked about a very special quartet.  The second is from 2015 on our 31st wedding anniversary.  It will be 33 years later this month!  Finally, this one from April 2015.

Okay, I think I passed all the requirements.  Thanks again for this "Major Award."  My blog will wear it with pride!
