Am I being naughty for accepting this Award and partially accepting others – yes I AM (guilty as charged).
Shall I be chastised because of it – I HOPE NOT.
Do I feel truly honoured for receiving it – Yes I DO!
Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time.
This Award was bestowed upon me from Face at the window

“Oops sorry it is”.
“Good evening ladies and gentlemen and members of the foreign press. I stand here before you
with a really sore toe, humbled that Face has nominated me for the The Best Moment Award. At this juncture I am a little lost at what particular moment I have actually received this honour for. Is the time when I felt really sorry for myself when I was out of work and lost a girlfriend and moaned to the blogging world? Is it for the ode that I wrote about my dog that was put to sleep 6 years ago? Is it perhaps my Haiku or free verse?
It may be for my entries into so many challenge sites that I lost count of what I did for whom. Is it because I write of my Pop and mum and share with you all, the love I have for them? I could go on and on and I realise that you are all getting rather fidgety at this point and want to head to the after party bar for refreshments, so I shall wind up as the man in front is waving his arm madly in a circular motion at me.”
“I would like to sincerely thank Face or as I call her ‘Ace’ for thinking enough about me to put me in her list of other fine nominees. She is simply a gorgeous human being who I have grown to have an affinity with and for that I thank her for being who she is.
“I do hope you all check her site out and enjoy what she writes as much as I do”.
“My nominees are the following, drum roll please. What we don’t have drums? Ok without drums then..sheesh!”
“I am nominating 3 people whom I haven’t nominated before (I don’t think) is there a rule where you have to walk the plank if you forget who you have nominated previously?”
Forgive me but my link button is not wanting to play with my nominees – they keep going to a bank sites or amazon 😦
thesenseofajourney.com- because this lovely woman writes exquisitely and is helping me to become a better writer and you should pop over and have a read.
raisingthecurtain.net – because she is a fellow Australian who writes extremely informative, intelligent and down to earth posts.
unfetteredbs.com- because she writes as her name implies, she is both hilarious and extremely talented (especially with Haiku).
