Mucho Gracias

How blessed am I? I have received many a wonderful thing from my Buds here on the Blog.

I received this super cute and oh-so-detailed card from one of my Favs, Dana, on the day I arrived home from my trip. It was the cherry of my week. It is lumpy and ribbon-y and layered with material and paper and has these cool little candy-like buttons. It weighs about 5 lbs and I LOVE it. I love you, too, Dana. Thank you ,thank you, thank you. (See, who said whining wouldn't get you anything?) BTW, you have gorgeous handwriting.

I have been awarded this great award by Deb, who was my first crush, and AmyBo, who I met when I saw her on someone I was reading and flipped out that I had stole her name and she was going to kick my ass. But she didn't and now we are in love as well. I think someone else has named me for this award, but alas I am in the first stages of Dementia and can't remember where I read that you bestowed it upon me. Remember, I am a pud and have no memory. That's why I am great confidant. I never remember to tell any secrets. Seriously. Please accept my apologies, whoever you may be. Deb and AmyBo know I am in need of reminders and do so accordingly. So, here it is:
-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.
This is the worse part of receiving an award....picking 5 people that I think deserve this. Since I have been out of the loop for week, I am not sure who has or has not received this award. So, if you are reading this, you are undoubtedly Superior, and if you have a blog, then you qualify for a Scribbler. So please take it and pass it on.
Just a little FYI: My mom is becoming computer-savvy, which to her means she can turn it on and send emails. She is using my Daddy's old email that says Joe K********. So today when I check my personal email, my heart skips a beat. I haven't received anything from my Daddy since Jan 1st, 2008, 4 days before his death. Seeing that still has my nerves on edge. I know. I am weird.
Anyway, my mom sends me pictures of the puppy she is thinking of getting. Gus,who I got for HER, has chewed the rocking part on one of my outdoor rocking chair off. He has since gone to live with one of my employees. Can you hear the Hallelujah Chorus ringing out now? Oh yeah, it's ringing loud and clear. And my back porch enjoyment hasn't changed. I just switched chairs with Rick.

Thanks girls!!! You are all the BEST!

Cute card, Jill. And any awards you receive you sure deserve, because you have one of the funniest blogs.
That is pretty cool that your mom is learning how to email...she'll be surfing the web before you know it, and shopping online. If she could do damage in an outlet mall, can you imagine the damage she can do online? lol.

Debz said...

Su bienvenida! Just make sure the room is ready for me when I get there. Based on the last 24 hours, it could be a lenghty stay.

You are so deserving of the award, you are one funny biatch! Can you go rub some funny on my blog?
My funny bone wore off and I am needed some inspiration.
How come you got all these peeps sending you stuff?
Did you send out your address and forgot a few choice people? I am feeling rather neglected. *sniff*sniff*

So....while you were on a shopping trip, I'm running to the post office to mail you a card that I toiled over til I was dripping sweat off my nose? By the way, there's a drop of it on the card....somewhere.

Glad you liked it. I made it as lumpy as I could.

You know I have a jill jill bo bill shrine.
