My Versatile Blogger Award

25 May

http://charlywalker.wordpress.com has recently awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award.  Apparently, receiving this award is not as simple as it sounds.

Not only do I have an assignment, but there is some disagreement on what the assignment is.  I am supposed to link to seven or fifteen other bloggers, depending on who is giving the rules.  (I am going to go with seven.)  I am supposed to list seven random things about myself.  Also, maybe I am supposed to look up the word “versatile”, or maybe not.

My late grandfather’s 1948 Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary has this to say: “Turning with ease from one thing to another; having many aptitudes; many sided”.  It also says “fickle”, but I will overlook that… things were different in 1948.  I could use an online dictionary, but I like the feel of thin paper and black tabs with gold embossing.  I also like seeing my grandfather’s cursive script on the inside cover.

Seven random things about me:

1)  I like musicals.

2)  I am way behind on my blog reading.

3)  I only wear comfortable shoes (comfortable does not mean ugly).

4)  I stopped drinking milk ten years ago when I realized I have a mild allergy to it.

5)  I rarely get sick.

6)  I can’t stand avocados.

7)  I recommend the documentary “Young At Heart”.

It is nice to receive an award, especially from one of my lovely readers.  I would like to promote my fellow bloggers’ work, so here are a few blogs that make me smile…

      Glad to make your day, Big Sheep. Yours was one of the first blogs I subscribed to, and it remains as one of the most consistently enjoyable.
