After experiencing some computer, issues that I am still working on, I realized that I did not blog yesterday.  Consequently, Grandmother Musings was set to Elvis for two days.  I think he deserves some recognition, but his time is over with tonight.  Sorry Elvis, but now I have some recognitions of my own that I would like to share.  It seems that I am having a triple play of awards.

To all of my nominees, please accept your nominations as a gift.  You are all wonderful bloggers and deserve to be recognized for your efforts.  However, I understand the amount of time and energy one has to devote to receiving an award, so please take all the time you need.  If you would rather not participate, I understand that, too.  No strings are attached to your nomination only LOVE.

  1. thank you very much. I appreciate your recognition

  2. WOW A car for $100!That sounds great.What’s the lowest priced car you could find today?

    • Yeah, a friend was selling her old Chevy Chevette and sold it to us for $100. It was a stick shift and had a dent in the side that allowed cold air in, but it ran for almost a year. We couldn’t have purchased a bicycle for $100. It was quite a deal. 🙂

  3. Thanks so much!! I am honored!

  4. Congratulations on your ‘triple crown’…Meats in with veggies…I wouldn’t like that either lol…Diane

  5. Definitely wouldn’t want your head to pop off and fly around the room. But I’m curious – does it happen often? Any pics? 🙂 Lovely post and congratulations on the well deserved awards.

  9. How nice of you to take the time for these nominations/awards! How do you do a blog that “nominates” someone for awards. beebeesworld

    • I do them in word and then copy them to a post. I like Word because I can set up all the hyperlinks and just copy and paste them over to WordPress. I can go into more detail if you would like. I hope this is what you are asking. Just let me know. Jamie 🙂
