liebster award

My dear friend Mark  at http:// nominated me for the Liebster Award.  It is an award for bloggers who have 200 or fewer followers which neither he nor I am observing. This is an award to honor our fellow bloggers no matter the number of followers.

I call Mark, Marco and he is a very special friend.  He is a trained journalist , an expert on all things sports related, and also a gentle, kind human being.  I love the way he so respectfully and lovingly refers often to his wife Karen. He is a good husband, too.   I also remember how Marco jumped in to help Angie   , another blogger, who had difficulty with her blog. Marco got in-touch with WordPress and tenaciously stayed on the situation until Angie got back on line.  Mark, feminist, writer and friend. . . . visit his terrific blog.

    Thanks so much for nominating me for the Leibster Award! I’ve already received this one, but I’m thrilled that you would find me worthy. I have stopped putting the badges on the front of my posts. I’ve even thought of creating a page for Awards, but haven’t done so. So don’t be offended if I don’t participate this time. You deserve all the accolades for what you post, and I love checking in with your blog whenever possible. Best wishes!

    Loved your answers, especially #7 and #8. Of course your children will say about #7 “why was that hard?!?” and if you have more than two children, then I think you have your next post already written 🙂
