I Am An Awesome Blogger Friend ...And ....

Isn't this a gorgeous award? It's was created by Ettarose from ettarose-edge of sanity. com and I am one of the bloggers lucky enough to be nominated. Ettarose is one of the funniest writers and nicest bloggers on the internet, so I couldn't have been happier when I saw that she thought of me, well...actually I couldn't believe it. Thanks Ettarose. You've made me smile once again.

And I took the liberty of quoting some of what you wrote in your award post.

"I created this award because words sometimes are not enough to show how much you guys mean to me. I have “met” so many good people on the internet, and a lot of you have brightened my life in so many ways. "

She also said that the blogs she nominated had the option of either passing the award along to others or posting it, it was up to them. Her only request is that you link your post back to her, the creator. Because when bloggers forget to mention the blogger who created the award we lose sight of where it originated and that's a drag. Therefore, remember the awards creator when you pass it along to your "Awesome Blogger Friends."

Thanks again Ettarose for this magnificent honor...you're the greatest.

And because I think both you and your award are also "awesome" I decided to pass your award along to my special "awesome bunch" of friends. Who are:

Dawn at Twisted Sister
Sandee at Comedy Plus
Ferd at The Best Parts
Eric from Speedcat Hollydale Page
Bud at WTIT Radio Blog
Maunie at her new blog Maunie's World

Farvel Cargo
Paula's Playground

I usually don't place awards on the same post, but I'm been blessed enough to be nominated for a few more by my buddy Sandee from Comedy Plus that I've had for some time now. I love them too and I wanted to pass them along before Sandee thinks I forgot. Both of these awards were passed to Sandee from The Teach at Work of the Poet

One is the You Make Me Smile Award and the other is the Super Commenter Award, both of which I would like to pass to everyone I nominated for The Million Dollar Friend Award I gave out on Monday, so check the list. However, I would like to mention a few bloggers for The Super Commenter Award who frequently leave comments that keep me going on a daily basis. Thank you again Sandee and thanks to all of you~

Nominees for the You Make me Smile Award is everyone on my blogroll and on my list for The Million Dollar Friend Award.

And special thanks to my regular super commenter's:

Dawn at Twisted Sister
Sandee at Comedy Plus

Sue said...

OMG! Where do I start? First I'd like to thank the little people, without whom I'd never have won these awards. You know who you are!
And my parents who haven't a clue what blogging is and their eyes glaze over when I speak of it. My family who wear dirty socks because I'm too busy blogging to do laundry.

Seriously Ann, thank you for thinking of me. I will post with a link to you this weekend. Busy week at work. I'm looking forward to a three day weekend!

Speedcat Hollydale said...

My goodness... I have hit the blogging jackpot!
So very nice Ann :-)
Right now I am in the middle of a 90 hour work week - (hard to believe but true)
My next and only day off will be Monday. I will be showing off my new awards then !!!
I read comments and blogs on my cell phone when I get an extra minute during the day. When I read your comment and it really gave me a boost.
Singing Sweet Home Alabama tonight, and have no idea why. Ha haa!!!

Daisy said...

Congratulations on your awards! And thank you so much for the link. My Mommie is still in Wyoming so I am a little bit sad.

Just checking on you sweaty...if I don't see something every day I get worried...All the excitement...How wonderful of Santa to take pity on a wacky lady who can't even keep passwords straight...now, I promise I will tattoo all the info on my butt...hum no that won't work I'd have to use a mirror...perhaps my boobs...my gyno would have a smile but oh well...have to put that backwards so I could mirror it too. maybe I'll just tell it to all my friends and they can remind me...hope your taking it easy sweaty...hugs and a big fat kiss

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

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"

Mark Twain
