7 x 7 Link Award For Me?

Each time I’m awarded by fellow and sister bloggers I am shocked, This time is no different. Gerry & I have just recently found our way to one another’s blogs. The friendship upon which I hope to build into a full bloom is just now budding.

The only requirements of this award below.

  • Thank my benefactors.
  • Tell one unknown thing about me.
  • Link to seven of my previous posts.
  • Award seven other folks.

My Award is presented to me by a very talented man and artist. Partly why I follow Gerry’s blogs are he is a writer of all things, including lyrics and is into Folk music too.

This fellow blogger, musician, artist in photography and I’ve a feeling the more I get to know I’ll discover a whole lot more to be liked is from Gerry’s blog’s. He is someone who speaks to my soul in ways that is often hard to reach.(Thank ou for that kind sir) He is also a lyricist with stanza’s that are likely to pull at  your heart-strings as they do mine.

An excerpt from Gerry’s “about” from his blog below because I think he says it better than I ever could:×7-link-award/

“In my early years I played the guitar ( and still do) for several bands, covering various styles, rock and roll, country and middle of the road.I played as a soloist, writing my own songs, lyrics and poems, and started in folk clubs. So I thought this might be a good way to express myself and hope that I can pass on to other people. While I have been doing this I have also discovered other people whose writing I also like so am learning as I travel this road to discovery.”

I encourage you to visit Gerry’s blogs. I blogs as in plural because as you will find access to two different blogs of Gerry’s. Both are brilliant!

Now onto my part…..

 My most heartfelt thanks goes to my benefactor Gerry, for his faith in that I have something worthy of sharing. My hope is that his blogs will entertain and be as thought-provoking as I find them. I thank you so very much

One unknown thing about myself:

I still have every one of my 45 rpm vinyl records from the 50’s & 60’s. I started buying all vinyl albums in the 70’s. My 45’s range from The Drifters to The Beatles.

Okay..links to seven of my own posts….. seriously? How does a woman ever choose? 

And now for a favorite part of mine when any award has the requirement of nominating other bloggers for the award. So…. drum roll please….

And the awards go to….  Because this blogger does more for research and documentation on chronic illness, Fibromyalgia, medical information we should all know. Can you read the latin on a prescription? Do you know what bid means? Noleen is awarded this by me because I think she is a talented writer, maybe even a phenom. But even more important to me is that she is a single mom. I enjoy her journey in raising her son, her witty observations as a mom. If you’ve not read her blog you are really missing out. I think she may be one of the bravest women I know.  This single Dad (I know it seems like a theme but promise it is not) Andy always has something new each morning to brighten your day. He is up- most positive and has an unusual eye for photography compositions. I like Any’s attitude towards life and about being a dad. Go on and check him out. You’ll be delighted you did. This blogger is someone who I believe has such variety of topics on her blog I find myself quite at home when visiting. A lot of things we share in common such as our disgust for took place before and after the Casey Anthony Trial. If you like current events she’s your gal. Judith is another blogger I feel akin to. She makes it so easy to like her and to enjoy her blog. Judith writes about whatever comes to her mind, her life, and that around her. She’s maybe one of the most upbeat person I know. All this despite dealing with diabetes. Dr Michael’s blog is unusual. That’s what I love about it. I’m reluctant to even say more so that you’ll remain curious and visit his blog yourself. I can hardly keep up with his posts because I devour most of them. almost as they come in. Okay ladies & Gents. If photography is your thing, or gardening with flowers is and you need a muse, this is your go to blog. This incredibly delightful woman has an eye for color, texture, contrast, sharpness, and beauty. I am often left breathless when I open almost anything that Cee has touched. .. or ahem that would be shot. AS in taking a photo of anything.

So that is it friends. I once again thank my fellow blogger Gerry. This is a fun and kind thing to have turned me on to.
