Well I never!!

Imagine my surprise when I opened up my Blog this morning, to find that I had gained two new followers overnight. " How come",  I thought?!

Then, all was revealed, when I found out that  the Queen of Bloggers, Bouncin'Barb over at (This and That As I Bounce Thru' Life) had presented me with Petey, the Pet Rock Award!  As you can imagine, this came as a total but very welcome surprise.  Trust Bouncin'Barb to put a smile on my face!

Now the rules for this Award were made up by a man (thank you Bruce, at JADIP, )so it might take me a while to work them out, but here goes.  I am writing these rules, so that my recipient will know what they they have to do!!

"You can only give it to one Blogger in Arms" (BIA)

"You must recognize the Blogger who gave it to you in at least 3 successive blog posts."

"You can take up to 3 weeks to pass on the Award - but NOT more than 3 weeks."

"The recipient of the Award must NOT have more than 100 BIAs (Followers)."

"You must update the names with your own name before passing it on." (See below).

"You should give 3 reasons why you think  your recipient deserves this Award."

"You can choose NOT to accept this Award, but apparently, if you do this, Bruce will come after you!".

Let's try to stick to these rules please, as, after all, the whole point of the Award is to get our Blogs noticed and to gain new Followers (Friends).

Here is the Winners' Circle thus far :

Becca at
Mynx at
Bouncin'Barb at
Thisisme at

Phew! I do hope that the above covers everything I should have done.  I now have pleasure in handing over this Award to :

Teresa - in the Middle Side of Life

1.  Quite simply, I always enjoy reading her Blog.
2.  She certainly deserves more Followers.
3.  (And this is really the main reason that I have chosen her).  She is a very brave lady who is coping at the moment with a very difficult situation at home, and I have nothing but admiration for her (as I keep telling her!).  It can't be easy, in fact it is very hard, and she is coping the best way she can, never knowing what the next day might bring.

Hope your Award will make you smile today, Teresa!

Congratulations on your Petey and your well deserved boost in membership, Thisisme. People helping people. Random acts of kindness. Building up rather than tearing down. These are the things that can make our world a better place.
