Thanks for the love!

Lisa, of bibliophiac, and Donna at A Novel Review, have given me The Versatile Blogger award. I'm terrible these days at passing awards along but I do love to introduce you to the terrific bloggers that took the time to pass them along to me with the hope that you'll visit their blogs!

Lisa is a high school English teacher who would love to see grade be done away with--just the kind of teacher my soon-to-be sophomore would love to have! She has also studied art--a subject we're quite fond of around here, what with a kid heading off to college this year to study Studio Art. I find it very interesting that Lisa's favorite sport is boxing--it's not often that you hear a woman say that.

Donna is new to blogging; she just started her blog in April but is already light years ahead of me on layout! I guess that history of learning HTML before it was even HTML helps! Donna says she looks just like her mother, something we can relate to in this house. When I was growing up people used to tell me all of the time that I looked just like my mother and now they tell my daughter the same thing. Donna used to be a big league bowler--and by "big league" I don't mean a professional but that she was, at one point, involved in three leagues in one season. Clearly she has an average well above my highest score ever of 127!

Please stop by these ladies' blogs and give them some love and, while you're there, check out the other blogs that they also nominated. There were a lot of great blogs that were new to me.


  1. Congrats! You deserve the award :)

  2. OK I'll check them out.

    I have always been called a "male version" of my mother. Lu certainly looks quite like me, but I guess the other two look more like Deb.

  3. Thanks for the introduction to two fantastic new blogs!!

    Oh...and congratulations on a well-deserved award :)

  4. Congrats on your award- you deserve it!

  5. Thanks for the follow-up, Lisa. Nice post. Now I know what to do when I want to introduce a blogger. I didn't blog much in August; so I'm still going through my reader and just came across your post. Thanks again.

    Al, my youngest son can relate. He looks just like me.
