A few days ago, I received an email that Carolyn at abcofspiritalk.com was nominated for an Awesome Blog Content Award. Part of receiving such an honor is to post a thank you note to the blogger who awarded it, to nominate as many bloggers as you see fit for the same award, and to write something about oneself, using the alphabet. It was to my surprise and honor, and great delight, that Carolyn had nominated my blog to receive the award. So thank you Carolyn; you have been a very encouraging friend, and I appreciate all the support.
Nominating other bloggers whom I feel deserve this award is a tough choice. Every blog I’ve signed up to follow has excellent work to display, and choosing just a few is hard. Here are some that I tend to visit a lot, whenever I am notified they have posted. You should enjoy them as well…..

I would like to include a bunch more, including those by Michael, Michelle, Scott, Randall, Jimmy, Bonanzaetfils, Patrick, Ajay, Rohit, Lesley, and the rest, but I’m already pushing my skill with this blog editing function to the limits. But I want to say that every blog I’ve visited so far has been outstanding in one respect or another.
I’m not shy about talking about myself, so here is my alphabet:
A) Abundantly self-confident. (Some might say Arrogant, but they’re just jealous. A little arrogance is fine, as long as you can back it up…..)
B) Bozoid, for sure..
C) Cooks really well, all things considered. (A $35K culinary arts degree has to count for something, right?)
D) Debonair (well, maybe not, but I’ve always wanted to be described that way, and this is my chance…..)
E) Eternally romantic, within reason, and budget…..
F) Fools around a lot. Well, I AM retired, and I have a lot of hours to fill up.
G) Gosh, I dunno…..maybe Grateful, for old friends and new…..
H) Habitual reader…..averaged one book/day X 50 years.
I) Don’t get me started on “I”…I just get weirder and stranger to longer I write, and I never can stop myself….see?
J) Just another bozo on the bus….
K) Kreative speller….
L) Living la vida loca….
M) Mostly not serious, except when I am…..
N) Ned, the handle I go by out in the big blue room…only my friends and family know it, so please, shhhh!
O) Oh, how did I ever get myself into this? Will it never end? See next installment, er, letter….
P) Pretty clever, eh? That is several in a row without stating anything prosecutable….
Q) Quietly encouraging revolution….
R) Resplendent in my tap shoes and sequined vest….
S) So many places to see! So many songs to be sung! So many people to meet. So much for watching a game on Sunday….
T) Thoroughly incorrigible curmudgeon….
U) Ultraviolet light makes my hair glow orange…..
V) “Ve haff our vays of making you talk!”
W) Why do you want to know? I got nothing to hide, copper!
X) Xact change only please….
Z) Ze list, she is finish…
Well, there you have it. A veritable truckload of stuff about me, all easily folded for packing away. This may help in clearing up some of the questions you may have had after a period of exposure to the Daily Pearls of Virtual Wisdom, but I doubt it did anything but raise more questions than it answered.I do have a softer side; I just don’t let it out much. I’ve spent too long fashioning my status as a curmudgeon to tarnish that image now. In reality, I tear up at Hallmark commercials.
Thanks again to Carolyn, and to all the bloggers who are now nominated I say, good luck! Y’all take care out there…..
Sometimes I sits and thinks,
I just sits.
A couple of days ago, I received an email informing me that Carolyn at abcofspiritalk.com had received a Nomination for the ABC Award. In turn, she nominated several other bloggers, and to my surprise and delight, I was one of them.
