The Versatile Blogger Award


Thank you so much to Keith Hillman of Keith’s Ramblings for offering me this award. I appreciate the thoughtfulness. And if you enjoy flash fiction, his blog showcases some excellent examples.

In accepting the award, I have been asked to do the following:

1. Display the badge
2. Thank the person who awarded it to me
3. List seven interesting things about myself
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the award.

As Keith himself stated, finding interested bloggers can be tricky when folks tend to have so much going on in their lives. I will try my best. Listed in no particular order, each is a treasure.

A. Catherine Noon

Rochelle Bradley

So, you obviously see the badge and my list of victims, er… nominees. Now, to find seven interesting things about myself.  I don’t know how interesting they will be, but here goes…

1. I utterly dislike going barefoot
2. I’m in a desperate struggle to reduce the weight of an eighteen pound aging pet cat
3. My body seems to have no internal clock whatsoever - a handy thing being able to drastically change up my schedule
4. I used to burn up the dance floor in my teens when I had a willing partner
5. My canine teeth look like fangs…
6. … which I refused to allow a dentist to file down
7. The only times I’ve been struck by sickness from a bacteria or virus in the past three years or so directly corresponded to the health issues of my cat Luna, whom I still miss terribly after her death last August fifth

Thank you again, Keith. And Happy Independence Day to fellow US citizens. Be well.

    1. I wear boat shoes, honestly. :P I don't want to step on something sharp hidden beneath my steps. Since the shoes have netting on the top, I technically do end up with my toes in the sand. ~grin~ Thank you for the kind words!

  4. Thanks so much, Darla. I'll try to do my best with this!
    We share a problem with going barefoot. My brothers delighted in hiding my footwear when we were kids! ;)

    1. What stinkers! The middle of my three older brothers always tried mischief against me, even going so far as to lock my mother and I inside a cubbyhole for a few minutes. Another time, he pretended to have been knocked out when he fell from a tree. In fact, that brat torments his wife to this day. ~shakes head~ Thank you for sharing your tale. Best wishes!

  6. Darla, fangs so much for taking up the challenge and giving us such an insight into your life! I've been off the radar for the last week or so - I've had a pretty busy few days which has restricted my computing time! I too am without a body clock which is pretty handy as I never suffer jet lag when I'm travelling here there and everywhere!

  8. Hi Darla. It's taken me forever to finish up the challenge--I'm sorry, but it is done and just check on my blog to read those 7 things about me. How is the kitty diet going?

    1. Awesome! No worries, my dear. The diet remains a struggle. She's making cute little "merr" sounds as I type in hopes of getting another feed. ~rolls eyes~ The "meow-tronone" gets old after a while. And she hadn't lost an ounce at her last vet visit. But at least she didn't gain! And thank you for asking.
