Our dear friend Sitka and dear friends Jazz & Dixie have given us the BTB Award! As they said, "This award is presented to a successful blogger, one who can 'be the blog' - making it their own, staying with it, interacting with the readers, and just plain having fun."
Thank you SO much! We are truly honored!
We are equally honored that our most favorite pup in all of Scotland, Marvin, has presented us with the Community Blogger Award! "The Community Blog Award celebrates people who reach out and make the blogger community a better one. It also underlines the importance of a blog's readership community, one of the most rewarding parts about blogging. It's the people that come back to comment, adding to the conversation, making you feel like someone is listening and interested."Marvin! Thank you so much! These are both such cool awards - we love the interactive aspect of blogging, "getting to know" our readers, and having fun together! That's what makes it all worthwhile! Especially the friendships with our readers!
Our new friends, Colleen (the biped) and Izzie tagged us in a cool, new meme. Colleen said to "open the current book you're reading to page 161 and post to your blog the 6th line," as well as posting that same line as a comment in the sender's blog.
Thanks for the tag, Colleen!
Cool. We just started a new book, and I don't think taking a peek at page 161 will ruin any surprises. We're reading Michael Shaara's The Killer Angels, a novel about the Battle of Gettysburg in the American Civil War. (Mom is reading a series of books by Michael Shaara and his son Jeff, that run from the American Revolutionary War through WWII.)
The sixth line on page 161 reads, "Clarke blinked." Seriously.
I am trying to get Dave to bet me who wins the battle and ultimately the war. Frankly, he'd be more prone to go for it if Amber would stop giggling.
Hmm... Stormy hasn't read this before, has she? I wonder if I should take her bet? She can't know who wins the battle in the book, can she? ...
I may have him. I'm not sure. I bet him "alone time" with Mom. I sure hope he takes the bait. Now if I can get Ammy to stop giggling about this!
We're going to tag Guinness & Shiloh in this 161 Meme! Their mom is a librarian, so I'm sure they're reading something cool.
Thank you again, Sitka, Jazz, Dixie, and Marvin. We are truly honored by the awards and love what they represent! Colleen and Izzie - thank you for the tag! It's always fun to be included and to play along!
