No, I Didn't Nominate Myself.

I've just been talking to a blogging buddy about blog styles (or the lack), awards and so on.

I said my style, such as it is, is my own and that this blog has provided an escape from the isolation I've often felt since I retired and left the big city.

Awards have never interested me. I care much more about the friends I've made here.

Or at least I didn't think they interested me. It may have been the campaigning that bothered me much more than an award itself.

Imagine my surprise when I found this in my email just now:

You Won!!

Won what? I didn't even know I was in the running for anything. I thought at first it was some type of spam that had crept past google's eagle eye. "You have been awarded an all expense paid..."

Then it looked legit so I opened it, still puzzled.

I am a Blogger of the Day. Wow!! I have no idea who nominated me; I promise I didn't do it.

I may have been the only nominee but that's okay too. I read some of the earlier award blogs and those bloggers were impressive. I checked out their sites and could understand how they won.

All well here. I've surrendered the hack license for today I hope. Only two short trips to VBS and back. I do have a few pictures (would you believe it took me four tries to type the word "picture" correctly?) which I will post later today. I ran into some lighting problems once again but they're okay.
