Ayak, on Turkish Delight has kindly given me this Versatile Blogger Award.
I am most grateful to her, not just for the award, but for the confidence she has given me in wrestling with the way computers work...the help she has given me in solving earth shattering problems like how to copy and paste - don't laugh out there, that was the paste bottle and paper in my young day - and her readiness to offer a hand even when she is busy with her own life.
It's a great blog...too.....
The award comes with conditions...I have to tell you eight things about myself.
I'm not quite as grouchy as I seem.....
But I do have a ferocious temper.
The savage breast is best soothed by five days of Test Match Special. But it will make do on a One Day International if it must.
I detest housework.
I usually have a book in my hand, or in my pocket, or on the table, or (shame on me) dropped in the bath...
I love Belgian food.
I would like to see Blair arraigned as a war criminal...and quite a few others as well.
I love Mr.Fly 'a la folie.'
So there you have it.
I would like to pass on the award to:
the Diary of Amy Rigby, which has opened an entirely new world to me, with style and humour.
Grumpy Old Ken, without whose round up no month would be complete.
Delana at Du Jour, whose ability to rise above it all sometimes astounds me
Tales from Clippy Mat, whose accounts of encounters with wild life still give rise to wild mirth...
and nodamnblog whose blog I appreciate for its compassion for animals, its regular Wednesday word...and its subversive humour.
No obligation on the recipients to fulfill conditions...the award is just a small way of saying 'Thank you' for giving me so much pleasure.
