Another (not at all dread) Award

Carrie (alias Prettysiren) at the Prompt Romp has nominated me for an award, the Kreativ Blogger award. Two awards in two days how exciting!

Here are the rules for the award:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
Thank you most humbly Carrie - Check.

2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.

- Check







3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
- Check

4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting. -Check (see below)

5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers. - Check (see below as well)

6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate. - Check (and again see below)

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.
- Check

Seven things people might find interesting about me.

1. I am in love with an amazing, talented, strong, and vulnerable woman with whom I have been married for almost 25 years.

2. I have three amazing daughters who are all much smarter than their dad.

3. I love old rocks, no really, I do: fossils, castles and cathedrals, ruins (especially Roman ones), a nice chunk of granite or marble, any rock really, just as long as it is old.

4. I am trying to get my first novel published while working on my second.

5. I manage a charitable service that helps people who are homeless.

6. One of my ancestors helped set fire to Washington D.C. in 1814

7. I can imagine writing a saga/series based on a heap of my ancestors including the fellow above. The only problem is no one would believe half their stories. What do they say about truth being stranger than fiction?

The seven people/blogs I have chosen to nominate for this creatively spelled award are:

Jemima at the Reading Journey.

Kathleen at A Writers Life

Wendy at A Life Twice Tasted

Corey at Shelf Monkey

Clare at Keeper of the Snails

Heidenkind's Hideaway

And lastly in a shameless display of nepotism

Deb and Shelagh at Here be Knitting

If any of the above people hate the whole concept of blog awards all I can say is: they made me do it.

Thank you! And congratulations on your award. :)

I have no idea who/where my ancestors were in 1814. My great-grandfather's brother did hire assassins to kill him; that's about the only interesting thing in my family's history that I know of.

Thank you for the nomination Al - I feel really humbled by it and must now think of 7 interesting things about myself, which just now seems impossible. I'm being airlifted to Italy for some much needed convalescence and perhaps will feel more interesting there!

Hi Kitty,
Thank you.
That seems like pretty interesting family history. I'm lucky older members of my family have done a lot of work on our genealogy in previous years.

Hi Kathleen
Sounds like the tail end of swine-flu talking (No pun intended).
Have a great time with Neil and recharge.
Take care of yourself
Al
