Linky Love....Awards and Clicks

Spreading some more link love to J's today
Thanks to Jennifer of Dust Bunny Hostage for the Good Chat Blog Award she gave me. I am truely honored! She compared yours truly to donkey kong. I don't think there is a greater compliment than that. She also gave Fabian much link love and nods. Most appreciative.Thank you Jennifer.


I really wanted to pass this award on to a handful of people, Since it was a "chat" award, I made my own criteria of what I wanted to look for, to determine worthiness. I don't want to just throw awards around and not make them meaningful. My criteria made me really think about which blogs that I visit where there is almost daily posting, like turning a page to see what is next. And 2. A blog where it is guaranteed to always have a good tale told. Much like my favorite story teller, and my mentor, Katherine Tucker Windham, these folks just know how to tell a tale, no matter what the subject, it is interesting. For me this award, as I present it is about the story telling skills.....an art form, thus a very "distinguished" award.
And the five winners are:

1. I, Wright by Trickie Nickie. Who else can make reading about achne interesting. Gross.
2. The Nester- No one can discuss window mistreatment's and make it interesting...NO ONE 'cept her.
3.For the Love- Always a guaranteed laugh there in her tales.
4.Big Mama-Another that can write about anything and yet nothing but have you wanting more.

5. Warm Pie- comfort read for the"suthern" soul.

In other link love
