Chrome swans left silver trails down sleek hoods, chased by cougars and horses. One hundred cars with names as powerful as the engines that pulled them down the parkway. Studebaker. Packard. Mustang. Thunderbird. Victoria. Fairlane. Galaxie. The parade of names rolled by, each caressed to a shine by the loved ones they carried through the mountains. Special.
What better way to celebrate 300 than to introduce you to a few special people that got me to this point. Please don't blame them for what you find in the padded cell here, but they helped me along the way.
Today I received two marvelous awards:
The wonderful Colette Amelia granted me the first. One of my friends from Theme Thursday, who writes as beautifully as the pictures that adorn each post and asks the tough questions this world needs. I am to pass it on and "continue your passion in writing because your hard work will always be appreciated."
Mrsupole - whose Opal Nation posts always leave me wanting more, and whose comments always leave me feeling warm.
Poetikat - whose way with words make me strive for a pale comparison
Willow - who needs little introduction, just stop by the manor once and you may never leave
Lola - whose mix of recipes and stories will entice you to seconds and thirds
The things we carried - such stories, just read, you will understand
Travel & Dive Girl bequeathed the second. Hard to believe I just met her a few weeks back on World Oceans Day. Her words are real, which make them a treat to read. This award is bestowed on blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggradizement. Please give more attention to these writers.
Theme Thursday - check out Mr. Linky for all the amazing people or join us one Thursday and have little fun. Ever one has their own voice, which is a joy to read each week.
A few other special people that deserve the recognition and you should check out, right now...
Really, this list could go on and on and on....if you are reading this, you probably deserve an award. Thanks for all the comments and encouragement, I cherish each one. Looking forward to sharing the next 300 posts with all of you.
