Thank You Laura! My Blogger Award & 5 Star Review!

Hello everyone! I’ve been really sick this last week, and I have not been able to get much done where the social media is concerned. I am now finally feeling well enough to dive back into it all! The first on my agenda is to send a great big THANK YOU to Laura Thomas aka “fuonlyknew” for nominating me for “The Most Inspiring Blogger Award”!! I am very honored to have been nominated by such a wonderful friend and blogger!! This award is also my very first and I will display it proudly! Thank you again Laura!

Most Inspiring Blogger Award

I couldn’t resist putting my own twist on the award image! 🙂

I highly recommend visiting and following Laura’s blog! She always has something fun posted! —>http://fuonlyknew.wordpress.com/2012/07/14/thank-you-ella-my-most-inspiring-blogger-award/

*********

I believe the next step is to share 7 things about myself and to nominate 7 other inspiring bloggers, so here goes:

1. I have 2 grown kids (my son Dallas and my daughter Cirocco) and 4 granddaughters between the two of them.

2. My wife and I were in a rock n’ roll band called “Starchild” for nearly 15 years.

3. I am dyslexic and love to invert words and sing entire songs backwards for comedic relief.

4. I can’t feel heat in my hands after being given a tetanus shot when I was 12.

5. I worked as a Professional Commercial Photographer for over 20 years and have a Masters degree in Photography.

6. My two favorite breeds of cats are Manx and Siamese (specifically blue and lilac point). Over the course of 30 years I have owned at least 6 siamese cats named Dejah.

7. My favorite color is green, the only true color…of course. He he he

Now, in no particular order, I would like to nominate these 7 awesome bloggers!
