I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Thanks, Norwood and please accept my apologies

Our good friend Norwood: has bestowed, upon Stumpy, a very prestigious award.

The award states that “This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time, and relationships!”
In other words, “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

Stumpy is thrilled and has a loooooooooooog list of friends she would like to thank for making this award possible. However, the only time Stumpy has to make the speech is when she is running around like a nut, staring like a zombie or crashed with exhaustion. She refuses to give up any of these activities to make a speech of appreciation. I know, not very nice of her ... but since she has thumbed/pawed her nose at doing anything except what she wants to do, I don't have any recourse except to let her have her way, once again.

On the other side of this are my own shortcomings. I am bloggerally challenged!!! A simple
post is the extent of my blog knowledge. I recently learned how to post more than one picture
But every picture posted is a long frustrating trial. To post links I have to find them in another blog and do a cut and paste (e.g.: see the above link for Norwood: note the colon, I couldn't get it out of there without losing the link.)

When the day comes that I have figured out all this stuff I will, for sure, pass the award on. There are soooooo many deserving the recognition.

Norwood, thanks for the award and keeping up with us despite your very active life. We'll keep working on my blogabilities and hopefully, will be able to pass the award along, before long.

I HATE it when my blog exposes my technological challenges. Especially since I spent most of my working life as an IT professional!

Sandra said...

Congratulations! I also can't make a link without doing the cut and paste thing. It takes a long time. Photos I have mastered. : )


oh Stumpy and Mom

Don't worry about your tech skills... I think you did great!!!!
Sometimes simple is best and that's what I like!
