And The Award Goes To....ME!

I am very pleased and honored to have received this award from RA from Sagittiferously Yours. Those of you unfamiliar with this person may be asking, what does RA stand for? Though I can't be absolutely certain about this, and I know other bloggers have proffered other explanations for this, I think I'm correct in stating that the RA must stand for "Really Amazing."

I haven't been a follower of hers for very long, but I've been more than impressed with the fascinating stories and videos she posts. Her blog boasts an eclectic style encompassing essays on music, the arts, science, pop culture, history, humor, her own personal stories and ruminations and everything else in between!

Following her blog reminds me of tearing open a box of Cracker Jack as a kid to get to the prize inside. You never knew what you were going to get, but you could always be sure that it was well worth the time and trouble. I believe that blogs like hers, which have such a broad-based appeal, are very unique and a wonderful addition to the blogosphere.

If for some crazy reason you haven't been exposed to RA and her talented and imaginative mind, then by all means expose yourself to her here! She would love to see you! Please visit her blog and follow her because she too is well worth the time and trouble!

Here are the rules of the award:

(Oh yes, there's a catch. There's always a catch isn't there!)

1. Copy and paste the award on your blog. CHECK!

2. List who you received the award from and include a link to their site. CHECK!

3. List 10 things that make you happy. CHECK!

In no particular order, they are:

My family

My friends and followers

My Dogs



Hot tubbing

Starbucks gift cards

The sounds and smells of the ocean

Travelling the world

Making people laugh

4. Pass this onto other bloggers whose efforts brighten your day, stir your imagination or make you laugh out loud. CHECK!

These are some great blogs here people! Go check them out and see for yourself if you haven't already!

And thank you again, RA, for recognizing me with this award. A toast to you! *clink*


  1. Oh, I see... THAT'S what it stands for!


  2. Congrats on the award! Well, deserved!


  3. I appreciate the thought! I have not done an award in so long because I got backlogged on them and then lost track of who I got them from. I really appreciate it!

  4. Oh man! Have you got any idea what kind of pressure that wonderful posting of yours puts on me? Am I glad I'll have my winter vacation next week to rake up more witty things to post!! LOL
    Seriously, Tom, thank you very much for those beautiful words. They mean the world to me. :)

  5. I really need to get myself within smelling distance of an ocean again - sooner rather than later. Congrats on the award!

  6. Thank you! I know I'm late here, I'm putting it up now.
