I'm Honored of Winning a Blogging Award


Gracious Laura, at Under The Sheets-Shhh had bestowed on me at LostNight Scribblings my first online award ever. I am very honored and grateful.

Thank you very much Laura, I will proudly display it on the mantel of the massive stone fireplace in my great-room.

So the rules to accepting my award are as follows: A) first list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep! B) Pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

Passing the award onto 7 other bloggers, well thats OK. But listing 10 honest things about myself, well! That’s reaching into the danger zone now.

I’ll do the best I can, so here it goes, as I tightly grip my chair…


1 When I develop new friends it takes me awhile to allow someone into my bubble space. When I do trust, I hold a lot of value to the friendship no matter how long it last or the stresses that pull on it.

2 Unfortunately have had strong physic abilities that I’d spent a fair amout of effort to ignore a lot of the time, then hate it when I’m right.

3 I’ve came across places that I'm able to quickly discovered that are haunted and I have lived in places that were.

4 I sometimes rely on my sense of humor to much, to a point that even when I’m in serious trouble, like cracking jokes with an ambulance drivers and emergency room doctors.

5 Being a single parent and one of the original Mr. moms in our state probably saved my life.

6 Building a life with my best friend for over twenty years and never having an argument or hurt feelings with each other since we’ve met. I am truly blessed with her.

7 Parenthood was one of the most enriching and rewarding things I’d ever done. Now I spend too much time with our dogs and able to communicate with them, just a little to easy.

8 I’ve always had prided myself of never being the typical guy and gotten along with women better as friends.

9 Sometimes I enjoy spirited arguments, excuse me (debates).

10 I find it annoying that I’ve ruined another shirt, with spoons that seem to leak.


The 7 blogs I would like to pass the “Honest Scrap Award” onto are;

Noelle, Portrait of the Human Heart

Christopher, View From The Northern Wall

K. Lawson Gilbert, Old Mossy Moon

Tracy, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

Azakamarina, MY LEMON VIEWS

Prince Naki, THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS

Bastcrystal, Thoughtful Creativity

Noelle said...

What do I do? Just copy and past the image? I'll have to think of something interesting to say first!!! Then, I will most graciously accept and thank you for your comments on my poems. :)

cool award, well deserved it is too! we have some things in common.... 1, 2 and 3. i remember sitting in a pub in a strange town during a rally with a couple of friends late at night, we were the only ones left, when i went to the ladies. and while i was in the bathroom, i heard the door open and close, and then nothing. when i went back out, i asked the bartender how long the place had been haunted. he was speechless, said very few people knew about it, and who told me about it. well, obviously no-one did...

Congratulations! You certainly deserve an award. Wonderful work.

Thanks for sharing the links with us, too. I know a couple of the people you mention (K and Christopher), and they are indeed excellent. Now I look forward to reading the people I don't know.

I also enjoyed the honest things about yourself. Keep up the great work:)

Thank you. I was kind of lost for words when Laura presented to me.

I know, my family and friends would find that hard to believe. Ha! Me being lost for words.

Thanks again, for your support and responses...
