ON FUN ~ Luv-erly...

A few weeks ago, Square Peg Guy @ Thoughts of a Square Peg in a Round World surprised us with an award. Typically this is where we would describe it as a lovely award, but this time, it really is. That's what it's called. Ta-da!




Square Peg Guy is a family man who shares his quest to find and maintain good health. His weekly weigh-ins keep him honest and allow his readers to offer support. But what hooked us were the posts of how cats suckered him right into becoming his pets. So go visit Square Peg Guy - any engineer bold enough to display such a flowery award is a good egg. This award comes with rules, albeit pretty open to interpretaton.

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.

2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Well, let us be the first to point out that just because you've just discovered a blog doesn't mean it is lovely. We come across blogs new to us all the time that are sometimes downright ugly - in temperment, in design, in musical taste. So we'll assume the intent is to pass this along to a newly discovered blog that we feel is lovely. So without further ado, we give you...

First of all, she truly does have a lovely design. She mentioned something recently about getting herself a new design but the one she has is great. Can't wait to see what she comes up wth next. Second, she seems like a lovely person. Although she suffers from the effects of a serious medical condition she refers to as her brain fart (aka a herniaton of the brain) and deserves more latitude than most to have a pity party, she refuses to do so. She shares her struggles along with her loves, like the Amazing Egyptian Dude. And she covers the GAMUT. You honestly never know what you'll come across each day. Wonderful writing, music, humor, travels - pretty much whatever education the world provides. We're happy she found us and took the time to say hello. We look forward to reading her lovely spot on the blogosphere and hope you will too.

Wow, I like your response to this award. You gave me quite a nice write-up. Plus you selected an awesome blog to pass the award on to!

Thanks so much!

Awww....thank you so much! It's been a hectic couple of days, so I capitalized on the fact that it's quiet and decided to catch up on comments and found yours about the Muppets video. :) I'll be thinking of them tomorrow, too, and somehow, Stars & Stripes Forever will never be the same!

Congratulations on a well-deserved (and very pretty) award.
