I was blessed to receive two awards the other day- and this is the second one from  

This is the Lovely & Loyal award. I pretty much am this with all Blogs I follow- but Alice is exceptionally easy! I MEAN HER BLOG- to follow..see her recent post--I'm babbling!



1. Say why you made your blog and if you expected it to be popular at all:
I created my blog to transfer all of my years of Journaling to an easy to keep- (HA) format. I never thought it would be popular, because I never really expected to ever let it be read. As you can tell, after all these years, I value Loyalty over numbers. Thanks everyone!

2. State the exact date you started your blog:
Blogger says a Member since 11/2005! Did they even have Blogging in 2005? I started over once, but my earliest post remaining is :

Parallel Universe

The original pic was so old it was deleted-so I stuck this one in here!

If you lived in a parallel Universe, would you have to horizontal park? In another sense when you'd say-- "We'll I'm besides myself on that issue! You are! Vuja De--the feeling you've never been there before, and probably haven't- but since it's parallel----it may have crossed your mind!!!


3. Nominate 5 loyal followers! These 5 have been with me since the beginning!

Now that's Loyalty--and: PAIN & PUNISHMENT!!  THANKS GUYS!!!!! 

Should you desire to participate here are the 3 questions. Even if you don't please pick up the award, as I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you!!!

  1. Alice is easy...LOL! Congrats on the award!

  2. Thanks! I'm glad you PICKED up on that! LOL


  3. Hey, now play nice, children!
    Yeah, I'm pretty cool, even though only Christie and me agree on that....but she is easy too, that's why we get on so well!

    Oh, John, tell me what that photo is before I go mad! I can see some writing...oranges or garages?
    Is it some reflection?
    You can tell me...I won't tell anyone!


  4. Ha Ha,

    Just for you Alice,

    I just opened up the shutter- pointed it through the woods for about 30-45 seconds, and believe it or not- that is a lighted sign on the Interstate through all the trees.

    I took about 4 or 5 and they gave a pretty neat effect. I was going for the streaking--but NEVER expected the colors!

    No skill- all luck and experimenting!

    Thanks for asking!



    PS: Really- I was abducted!

  5. Congratulations, John! Your blog is as high quality as it gets.
    I love the idea of horizontal parking, provided it's easier than doing the parallel thing.

  6. Haha nice! Thats a really pretty award!

  7. Robyn,

    You are giving me a big head! Thanks so much & back at ya!

    You could definitely get more cars on the lot!! :-)



    Thanky Gal!!!


  8. Congratulations, Juanny! I also want to thank you for being just as loyal...I'd have to give the award right back to YOU, amigo. :)

    PS - I didn't realize you've been around since '05. I started my blog in Jan. of '06 and I would've never imagined I'd be still at it today!

  9. You're an award collecting guy lately! I don't post them, but I thank the people who gave them to me...

    Thanks for always being there Buddy!



    And to you too sir!!!! Have a great upcoming week and MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!!!! Hope the weather is awesome!


  11. Well THANK YOU JOHN!

    I don't think I was here for your first post and don't recall how long ago I joined in but I guess it's been quite some time. I think I found you through Sweetie and Ily through you.

    It's been a great few years anyway.

  12. Thanks john have a fabulous sense of humor and I consider you one of my loyal blogging *friends* and no doubt in real life we'd we'd crack each other up!

    Thank you for the award. I will try to post about it soon. I have a lot of stuff going on in life now... and so have been remiss in following my favorite blogs. Lifelong friend (51 years in june - since I was 4 and she was 5)recently diagnosed with lung ca adenocarcinoma stage IIIB and reading up on that. *sigh*

    But then there is God's report. I just wish they'd hurry up with the chemo treatment. It has been 3 weeks since they did the 1st thoracentesis in which they took out a liter of fluid ..did it last week already back and in the mean time they've done nothing.

    I shouldn't say that but have lost focus a bit and trying to get back on track and be balanced with emotions.

    So made me smile John and I am grateful for your visits and the laughs you give me ..some really good ones too. :)
