Today is a bit of a gratitude roundup. In the past few weeks, I’ve collected a few nice gestures from people, and it’s important that I give them credit (and some invaluable whatimeant2say PR) before my senile mind forgets all of them.
A.) I need to thank Stephyness for awarding me the Beautiful Blogger Award. I am still working on displaying the award, as my Award Shelf Runneth Over. But, it’s a particularly attractive one, so I will certainly find a way to show it off, rest assured.
2.) Much appreciation goes out to my pal over at “I Probably Shouldn’t Have Said That“. She is one of my most stalwart fans, and gives me props on a regular basis. She bestowed upon me the Award That Must Not Be Named on this Family Blog. For some reason, she likes my writing, and the feeling is mutual! Check out her recent article on blog stalking. If you’re lucky, maybe she will start stalking you! And, this clever lady actually has two blogs, so be sure you avail yourself of her sunny side, too, by taking a gander at Hobbling Around. Her Public Service Announcement is one of her many hysterically funny posts.
Trois) I must direct you to The Middlest Sister, who is celebrating 5,000 subscribers by posting paper art of the avatars of her top 50 commenters. And, lo and behold, there is the cutest darn picture of Wonderbutt that you ever did see. See if you can find it in her clever mosaic! Congrats, Nicole, on your many fans. Your fame is well-deserved! (You can also check out Nicole’s clever art at Nevermind Nicki.)
4th.) We just received a new, hand-made, duck canvas cover for a bed for Wonderbutt from Bow Wow Beds. And, he totally loves it. I know he doesn’t look thrilled in this picture, but when have you ever seen him look thrilled? The best way to tell that he is absolutely delighted is to note that he has not chewed it up yet. Now, the cover was not free, but I want to thank Amberlii at Bow Wow for having this brilliant idea to make custom covers at reasonable prices (we are using our cover on Dimples’ old crib mattress – great way to recycle!), and for not questioning my request to personalize it with the name “Wonderbutt”!
