Let's Be Friends Award

I came home from an absolutely wonderful week down in Bisbee, Arizona, to discover that two new friends have both awarded me the Let's Be Friends Award. Thank you, Dorte and Lou--I value your friendship with or without awards!

The award says:
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

Now the trick is to choose eight bloggers with whom to share this award. I seldom follow through on these awards, not because I want to hog the honors all to myself, but because I can't stand picking and choosing amongst my friends. Ah to choose eight from so many?
  1. Muse Book Reviews
  2. NoBS Book Reviews
  3. Kim Courteney Writes
  4. Books Ahoy!
  5. Wendi's Book Corner
  6. The Book Chook
  7. Bookworm's Dinner
  8. Find Your Next Book Here
Now I'm off to tell them what I've done!


  1. Oh bless your little cotton socks! That is so lovely. Thank you so much. After the last few weeks I've had I think I might just burst into tears!

    Eight? Oh goodness me... that is sooooooo hard. I'll have to put my thinking cap on.

    Cue the sound of cogs whirring...

  2. Speaking of socks....You knocked mine off. Thanks so much Cathy. That is so sweet of you. I need a pick me up too after a double visit to the VET this week. :-)
    I'll probably blog about this and you tomorrow.
    I also really liked your poll...cute idea.
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  3. Thanks, Cathy. I am honoured by your award. It is just wonderful to have the means of being friends across the world the way we do.

    I made the resolution not to partake in memes, and I read where you understand that, but I truly am delighted by the words of the award.

  4. Wow Cathy - thank you so much for the award! I feel so very fortunate to have a nice great bunch of bloggy friends! (And I thank you for all the help you have provided me with over the past year!)

    I've posted the award on my blog with a thank you!

    Take care Cathy, and I look forward to Family Feud!

    :) Wendi

  5. Well thank you so much! I am so very honored! But I need to let you know that I am very slow on following up on awards ... but I will acknowledge this publicly at some point ... and I'll try to do you proud. Thank you so much! : )

  6. Oh, and I forgot to tell you that I just loved your survey at the top! That was fun!

    And I'm sorry I haven't been by lately ... I was on vacation and I'm struggling to catch up with all my blogging! : )

  7. You like me! You really, really like me!

    Tah ha ha!

    So kind of you to give an "award" to your stalker.

    I JUST got my computer back after one week and a day, 3 trips and hours on the phone with these people. Oh, and about $300! ARGH!

    So, thank you so much.

    After I catch up on all my e-mails and what-nots I'll give this some thought and post on my other blog. As you know, I like to keep a professional facade on NoBS.

    I like your choices! I've checked out all of the links. There were a couple that were new to me.

    Thanks again!

  8. Congratulations on your award! I usually don't follow up on these for the exact same reason.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
