We were awarded the Versatile Blogger Award

On behalf of my sisters on  the mortal side of the Bridge I would like to thank the author of the Death by Chocolate blog for nominating us for the very prestigious Versatile Blogger Award.  I would like to thank everyone who voted for me, the writers, the producers, the director (I am all of them) for helping us to secure the nomination.  Securing a nomination is a group effort and I thank every member of this group 90% of which is me.)

It is a very beautiful rewards.  We are very proud of it.  But there are rules of accepting the award.  I have already thanked the Death By Chocolate blog and provided a link to their blog.  That was number one.  And then we have to list seven things about us.  We are going to write seven things about our Mom because I think that is what is meant.  So here they are.
  1. Mommy is actually painfully shy and hates to talk on the phone, or meet new people, and she only found her voice through us dogs.
  2. Mommy was an x-ray technician when she was younger but gave it up to raise her children.
  3. Mommy has been married for 40 years but they have been to two different men.  Not at the same time.
  4. Mommy has had both knees replaced after a dozen knee operations before then, she has had lots of other surgeries too including gall bladder, back, and rotator cuff.  
  5. It took three years before Daddy convinced Mommy to get a dog.  Since then Mommy can’t imagine living without a dog.
  6. Mommy and Daddy are two of the youngest people living in their 55 and over community.  She had to move to one because she has such a tough time on stairs.  She considers moving here one of the best decisions she has made.
  7. Daddy helps Mommy with her blogging but never wants any credit.  They are a team, like Boris and Natasha.

Now the 15 blogs I am nominating for the major award.  These are blogs that I follow regularly because I think they are entertaining, informative, and just plain great.

    That No.1 about your Mom sounds just like my Mum. Funny that, aye?? I'm not at all shy. I use my voice whenever and wherever I can. I don't bark much but I've got a real happy howly song thingie I use whenever I'm happy.

  5. Congratulations on this great award. We found your blog just recently, and it has been a blessing to us after losing our Greta. It brings us comfort to hear about the goings on at the Bridge. Thank you for nominating us, it means a lot.
