I'm a Friendly Blogger...Apparently.
This will be just a short post to say thank you to my very dear friend Gary, aka klahanie, who has seen fit to pass on the "friendly blogger" award to me.
I would just say that I don't think I deserve this award half as much as Gary does. I know he spends hours at his computer communicating back and forth with other bloggers, offering them his kind, warm-hearted friendship. Gary often tells me that he is sometimes "exhausted" by all the communication he so selflessly gives to others, but being the type of guy he is, I don't think he ever fails to respond to some one's comment or email or, if you're like me, telephone call. So here's to you, Gary, my hirsute, hippy pal!
Anyway, as it is expected of me to pass on this award to other bloggers, I thought I would mention just the few who always leave me kind and supportive comments. They are as follows:
The Manic Chef.
bazza at "To Discover Ice".
Dixie at "dcrelief".
Occasionally, I have had comments from others, such as the SNEE (or "The Sometimes Never Eventually Express"), Gem at "The Modern Day Spinster", and "TheraScribbles", so I thought I would mention them too.
And finally, I will give a special mention to Mattie Elliott at "Mattie's Just for Fun Poetry Blog", who left many kind comments on my blog, but who now, unfortunately, appears to have ceased blogging.
You can find links to all the above sites on the right of this page.
Just to say that all of the above mentioned do not have to acknowledge their award, and whether to take part is entirely up to them.
So, this is your "friendly", normal, average, delusional and paranoid man, signing off.
