I’ve Been Nominated…!

Liebster-AwardVersatile Blogger AwardI’ve been nominated!  Hip-hip-hoorah!

The Eternal Scribbler has nominated me for the Liebster award -but that isn’t all….

Thanks to her generosity, she nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award -as well.

Thank you, Ari.

The Versatile Blogger Award Rules: 

  1. Thank the person that nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Nominate at least 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  3. Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.
  4. Share 7 facts about yourself!


  1. Eternal Scribbler is one of my top blogs.  She gives you excellent advice on writing.  Tools all writers can use.  Please go check Ari out -if you write, her site is a must!  Again, thank you!
  2. They will be at the bottom
  3. Done
  4. 7 facts about myself
    1. I wanted to be a wildlife photographer or a vet -neither happened, but I know a lot about wildlife and animal medicine.  I did work for a vet, for a period.
    2. I promote Shinee -because I want them to have a huge fan base in America -so I can see them perform many times.
    3. Dressage is my favorite style of riding.  One of my horses is an Arasian -Arab/Friesian mix.  Many call them sport horses.  I dreamed of us riding our way to the Olympics.
    4. When I lived in Rome, New York a little old lady lived behind me.  She wrote poetry every day.  I was fortunate enough to be one of the few that got to read them.  She inspired me to develop my own poetry.
    5. My first French kiss was Italian guy -named Andre.  I always thought this was perfect!  I should write it into one of my novels -the setting was just as it should be, for such a kiss.
    6. In my younger years, I was a professional singer/dancer for a production that had previously performed in NYC.  I got to know some talented actresses/actors.  Memories I still cherish.
    7. I am an extra in A League of Their Own.  I got complemented twice on my acting, and the audience was told to watch me.  You can actually see me during the movie, but I am blurry.  I am between Tom Hanks face and another actress, at the mound.  You have to know it’s me -but it is!  I have a baseball they all signed.  One of my highlights.

Liebster Award Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. Display the Liebster Award on your blog.
  3. Share 11 random facts about yourself.

  5. Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers for the Award and have them answer 11 questions.

  7. Copy the rules into your post.
    1. All the above, and: My husband is a drummer in a Classic Rock band.  So, I guess I am a groupie.
    2. Dancing is a passion.  I owned my own dance studio -in three counties.  I danced, weekly, even into my 50’s -but then switched to, just, ballroom, for health reasons.  Before then, I continued to practice in tap, hip hop, jazz, ballet, and ballroom.  I did dance pointe, but when I closed my studio -I stopped.
    3. I compare myself to Puff the Magic Dragon -as I live most of my time, in my own head.
    4. I want to speak as many languages as I can learn.  To me, words -have a beauty that must be grasped, and spoken.

I am a mother of 16 children and grandchildren. Some of them are by blood and the rest by heart. I was a foster mom for a few years and the children I cared for during that time have mostly stayed with me through the years. I love to write, read, dance, paint, and play with my animals. I enjoy dressage riding and just being in the barn. My words are my gift, as they allow you to know me as I really am. Thanks for joining me on this ride of life!
