I'm A lucky Blogger!

I'm a lucky blogger, because I have a great friend in Christy, from Christy's Coffee Break who also happens to be my writing partner on A Hint Of Poetry. She's done so much for me that it's unbelievable, and now she added A Nice Place In The Sun as one of her best blog stands! You know like a lemonade or pop stand? The first job of the entrepreneur who is ready to enter the stock market when they're six? Remember setting up lemonade stands when you were little and drinking all the lemonade,... or spilling it all over the ground... and loosing your money,.. then getting in trouble because it was irresponsible? Well I don't remember anything like that either, I've just heard other people mention it. By the way, I do know that's a bake stand in the image. The image just reminded me of a lemonade stand, in the same way that visiting blogs reminds me of visiting a lemonade stand, plus I like the picture.

I've been extremely fortunate when it comes to meeting great friends in blogging, and Christy is also a blogging mentor, who is teaching me everything I know. This creative blogger is also the contributing writer on Mike and Tish's blog, Blogs We Luv who also happens to be the blog that created what Christy has referred to as the "blog bumper sticker" blog badge that is I love Your Blog! I thought that was a great way of referring to this really cool award created by Mike and Tish, who seem to be really cool people. Plus, any friend of Christy's is indeed a friend of mine. Hence, I'll have to see what Blogs We Luv is all about. I think these kind of badges are a great way to show our friends we love their blogs plus they look great in our sidebars. Thank goodness for these three bloggers, Christy,(who is also the Writer's Reviews awards creator)Mike, and Tish, for their creative kindness! I would to also thank Mike And Tish for suggesting ten bloggers to pass the I love your blog badge too, since it is always so hard to choose.

I tagged the blogs I love that have been so good to A Nice Place In The Sun, and a few new bloggers who I'd like to introduce to the rest of my friends.

Here are the blogs I love, and if they had lemonade stands I would also buy their lemonade!

Sandee from Comedy Plus
Dawn and Ann from Twisted Sister Totally Pissed Off
Santa Claus, Every Day Should Be Christmas
Bob from Bobbarama.com
Eats Your Math
It's a Whimsical

Monday Morning Power
Kissing The Dogwood

Thank you all for the fun and friendship!

Thank you Ann, now I get to have two bumper stickers! I love it! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far..it's steaming hot here! :)

bobbarama said...

Wow. The thing I love most about getting tagged for this I Heart Your Blog button is that you're the tagger. It makes it that much more special, because I love hanging out in your blog and I look forward every Tuesday to your always-interesting question. You rock.

Congrats to you. You so deserve this button.

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

And I thought my area was the hottest on the planet! I cannot wait for summer to end! I wanted to give a "bumper sticker" to all of your blogs! But I guess the person behind them is what matters! This is a great badge, and I appreciate you thinking of me! I'm thrilled to have one, and I wish I could put it on my car.


Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Wow in return Bob! A jump for joy! Since I feel exactly the same way about Bobbarama! :)

I'm glad you like the I "heart" your blog button, and my Tuesday's question. You have great answers!

Thanks Ann, that is so nice of you! ( I <3 ANPITS )
I also got one from Christy ( I <3 Christy!)

I will hang up the badge TWICE on my sidebar! (and I will, as always, put a clickable link directly to your post behind it).

I didn't at all realize that I could award other blogs with the badge myself. So I am off now and give some to the blogs I luv.

P.S: I <3 Mick Jagger too

Thank you, Ann, for all your kindness. YOu once said that you are lucky to have met such kind bloggers. I think kindness begets kindness, and your aura of such kindness has attracted such a great following to your blog.

Monday Morning Power said...

What can I say except THANK YOU. Your site has been one of the my greatest finds. I am just a little overwhelmed. I will proudly display this bumper high on my side bar with your name prominently displayed with it.

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Winston! What a great comment! You deserve this badge, and I'm glad you like it. It's neat isn't it?

You're great with your kids, and your blog is fantastic. I think you are really going places. I'm honored to be your friend. Hope you're having a good week-end! :)


Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Mel, I'm so glad you found me! :)

I think Monday Morning Power is great and I'm thrilled you like the badge. Have a great week-end! :)


Santa Claus said...

Ho! Ho! Ho! Ann.

I say thinkyou from the bottom of my heart. I really enjoy visiting you and anyway.. anyone who is a friend of Christy's is a friend of mine :-)

I really think it's wonderful that you awarded me this for a blog I wrote in one of my more serious and contemplative moments. It really isn't easy being Santa. Living up to everyone's expectations of the fat jolly guy while at the same time trying to say what is important to me but I guess I always knew that. You'd think after 500 odd years I'd have it all worked out wouldn't you :-)

I shall proudly display the Bumper Sticker on the back of the sleigh and hopefully as I'm spotted all over the world on Christmas Eve it will spread the news that Blogging is "OK".

I've never received so many gifts in my whole life since I joined the Blogging world. It's a unique experience for me.

Santa Claus said...

Ho! Ho! Ho! Ann. I want to thank you for the wonderful award. I really appreciate it.

I think it's really wonderful that you awarded me this for one of my more serious and reflective blogs that I've written lately. It isn't always easy being Santa. Trying to live up to everyone's expectations and be the jolly fat guy while at the same time trying to get across my message. I'm not sure if I ever succeed. However I knew this before I ever started all of this. You'd think after 55 odd years I'd get it right wouldn't you Ho! Ho! Ho!

I really enjoy your blog. I look forward to visiting often.

I'll put my bumper sticker on the back of the sleigh and hopefully spread the news on my Christmas Eve trip for all the people who say they saw me fly over.

Thankyou Ann

Santa ô¿ô

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"
