A Welcome Gift

I dropped in at my favourite female curmudgeon’s blog a couple of days ago, in the midst of a huge “Connectivity Issue” which was afflicting my ISP (Internet ‘Scuses Provider), and found an unexpected gift. The best sort.


Except I AM not, and have NEVER BEEN “Lovely”. I will accept “handsome”, “irresistible”, “masculine” or possibly, in a pinch and with a minimum of chunderous reaction, “Cute”.

But NOT “Lovely”.

I do appreciate the thought and now must find 15 people to pass it on to.

This is MY list and I am not taking into account the lists of other bloggers. So, if you end up with more than one of these little roses, take it as a compliment that you have more than one friend. (You’re lucky!)

Oh yes, first the RULES!

The rules for this rolling award are passed down as follows:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you love and/or have newly discovered.

3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

4. Use the One Lovely Blog award picture from my blog, on your blog to let everyone know that you have one lovely Blog!

So, my fifteen choices as lovely blogs are; [pause for drumroll]

First and second, my Posse of Daisy’s, daisy fae and daisy mae.

And, of course the bookelicious Woo.

Next, photographers extraordinaire, KymRJ Flamingo, and Helen Edith, and the incurable bookaholic, Cathy , then, in no particular order of sexual orientation, nationality, alphabeticity or age are casa az, SilverstarPuddock, The GitwizardLinda, Daddy P, Wandering Coyote, and the imaginitive  Petramichelle.

  1. most honored, archie! you clearly have a soft spot for strong, tough women… and we seem to take a liking to you as well!


  2. Goodness me, two in one week. I am delighted. And right back at ya archie! I’ve been compiling my list since healingmagichands put me on hers, and you’re on mine… does that make any sense? No probably not.

    Ah well.



  3. Thank you so much, kind sir. I’ll get this up in the next day or so. I’ll warn you that I tend to be a bit of a curmudgeon about award rules, though! 😉


  4. LOL! I also had the “One Lovely Blog” award bestowed upon me. So far, I haven’t managed to pass it on. You can click on my name above to see my take on the whole thing. I am working on a masculine blog award. If I ever initiate the “Silent But Deadly” award, I’ll be sure you’re one of the first recipients.


  5. Aw shucks, :blush: The feeling is mutual–Since I’ve never seen you then I’ll take your word you are handsome but I know your blog is witty, funny and, er…lovely.


  6. Thank you Archie, that’s very kind of you, although I share yours and David C’s reservations about the name/design.

  9. As a strong, tough woman …… hang on a minute *rummage* ….. as a lovely bloke, I humbly accept this award …….. which had reminded me, I keep meaning to build an Atrophy Room …… [thanks Archie – very kind]
