Me? Superior Scribbler? You're kidding, right?

MorningGlory has seen fit to bestow upon me a blogging award. Why? I don’t know! But looking at the rules, especially the one that says it has to be passed on to someone who hasn’t received it yet, perhaps she just ran out of more worthy recipients for I know, deep down in my sole that I am not worthy.

(Then again, it could be because she is a former NJ resident, like me, and likes to see how things are going when I write about Rutgers.)

She did have me blushing a bit when she wrote: "Next, let me point you in the general direction of Compass Points, “The adventures of a retired couple as they travel the USA–or just build live in a new log home, the Aerie, in the north-central PA.” If you want the latest news on college football, bird watching, or want to pick up some home canning tips, this is the place to go."

Of course, as with every Bloggy Award, there are A Few Rules. They are, forthwith:
• Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
• Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
• Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post , which explains The Award.
• Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
• Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

Now I'll have to put on my thinking cap to come up with five bloggers I believe would be most worthy.....mmm, let me see....

Well, for log home love there is Shelley of Building A Log Cabin who has just moved into her Michigan home but loved the process and the company sooo much that she has become a sales rep for Hiawatha Log Homes. She's got lots of pictures of the inside and out of her cabin on the lake. She and her husband are celebrating an anniversary today: their third. (Young whippersnappers!) Shelley's also got a second blog dedicated just to Birding In Michigan. (Personally, I think she's a little loony over loons.)

Then every day I check in to see what Richard of At The Water is up to and find he has usually posted several marvelous pictures of birds from his little patch in Minnesota. He also convinced me to stoke the economy some by purchasing a new digital camera which I'm still learning to use. He's full of photography hints, birding knowledge and more.

Continuing to the west (and north) I like to check in on Rev. Paul Way Up North in Anchorage. I find he provides insight on what folks up there actually think of their Governor. (Besides, I feel slightly warmer after reading some of his weather reports.)

Now, let's head south a bit to warm up.

Moving down the west coast some into California we come across a very weird character named jihadgene or the Great Reader who, on occasion, channels Kim Jong Il but who always has some interesting stories to tell.

There's GuyK and Sweetthing down near Tampa, FL whom I find CHARMING, JUST CHARMING. Now his rants may not be everyone's cup of tea (or Jump Start) but I find myself nodding along as he steps up on that stump to let us know what he thinks. And his gardening and fishing skills make me jealous.

Well, that's my five and I strongly urge you to go over and check them out. I hope they won't mind being on my short list.

Joated you are too kind - thank you!! I'll agree that I am loony over loons but not that I'm a whippersnapper (42nd birthday is coming up in dec.)but I wish I were a whippersnapper! Does that count?!

42 compared to my 59 and only your 3rd anniversary compared to 36 years with Terry...You are a Whippersnapper!

Richard said...

Thank you very much Sir!!! Glad it's a Scribbler award which means I don't have to think about writing anything of substance in the future.

joated said...

Actually, Richard, you do mostly pictures anyway. Maybe I should send you a big box of crayons?

Richard said...

A picture is worth a thousand words, so you're just lucky I'm not writing.
