And finally, I received this Splish Splash Award from Rae at Weather Vane. I'm embarrassed to say that she gave this to me back at the end of August. I'm finally posting it now. Whew! Thanks, Rae, for thinking of me. You're the greatest! This award is given based on mermaid lore qualities to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive, and inspiring blogs. I am to pass the award on to nine other blogs that I feel possess the qualities listed above. But, you know what folks? I've plumb run out of bloggers. AND - this is hard work. I see why some of you are not accepting any more awards. I've been working on this post for 4 hours now and I'm still not done. True, I procrastinated and decided to put all the awards on one post.

So don't hate me that I'm not following the rules. Let's do this. If you think your blog has any of the qualities listed above, by all means, I bequeath this award to you. Yes I do. Take it. Mwah. Mwah. (both cheeks, don't 'cha know.)

What I have learned from all these awards:

a) People like me - they REALLY like me!

b) It's hard to walk around with this crown on my head from all the awards.

c) My hand is getting tired from waving like Miss America Universe. AND

d) My mouth and teeth are dry from all this smiling. I forgot the trick of putting vaseline on my teeth like the beauty contestants. It's true!

Why, thank you. Of course, I, being the rebel I am, NEVER pass on awards. I also kick puppies and am mean to old ladies.

But I appreciate your thinking of me, anyway.

Bonnie, Original Art Studio said...

My goodness Pat, with all these awards you truly are the Queen of the Blogosphere. I bow to you!

Thank you so much for thinking of me - much appreciated - but as you have discovered there is a big price to pay for such popularity! That's why I reluctantly decided to not accept any more awards. But I sure do appreciate the thought!! ((((Hugs))))
