      TY Dear One and I believe I responded last month with gratitude on your blog. I didn’t realize you’d added a note here. Thanks again! I accept your award with joy and will check out the other nominees too. Blessings! 🙂

    I did, and I wasn’t trying. I just wrote something that I thought was funny. And it was. My reward is not the status, but the fact that I got to make so many people laugh, chuckle, happy, smile and so on. A privilege. 😀

    • 12/10/2012 11:57 pm

      Congratulations to you too and what a delight! 🙂 I had fun writing my email post because it’s a topic I’ve shared with friends, and we always make jokes about the providers. Like Mike and many others have said, I’m grateful for the unexpected exposure… Now back to what we love doing — blogging!
      Thank you! 🙂

    If you haven’t already received the Reality Blog Award (I didn’t see it on your wall) now you have. Hang it proudly. Here is the shortlink
    If you have already received it (and have it hidden) you are just too darn special. At least a few of us think so.

    Hey, Eliz, I just nominated you. Ceck this out:
