Versatile Bloggers

Apparently, I have been given a Versatile Blogger Award by Chris Brundage.  There are three responses I am to make after receiving a VBA: 1) Thank the giver of the award and link to them.  2) Tell readers seven things about yourself.  3) Confer this prestigious award upon someone else.

So, 1) Thank you, Chris!

2) Seven things about me:

  • I am an identical twin and I have twin 10 year-olds.
  • When I was a kid, I would smear gobs of honey onto a slab of marble cheese for a snack.  I still do this sometimes.
  • I started dating my wonderful wife Naomi when I was 16 and she was 15.
  • I get earaches in the wind, and I now live in one of the windiest parts of Canada.
  • We haven’t had any TV channels in our house for almost a year.  This may change once hockey season starts.
  • I hate my big hands.
  • I once fell into an open pit full of pig manure on our farm.  Up to my armpits in @#$%.  Really.

3) I confer a Versatile Blogger Award on David Warkentin at Considerations.

    For your #2, I thought of the peanut butter and Cheez-Whiz sandwiches my father often ate. I eat them now, much to my wife’s puzzlement. But I’ve got nothing to match the pig manure episode.

    I hope you didn’t mind being honored so. When I got the award, it was touching. I’m not likely to receive any other awards for blogging!

    Peace to you as you settle in.

    • Peanut butter and Cheez-Whiz—wow! That is truly unique.

      Of course I didn’t mind—it’s always nice to be recognized. Like you, perhaps, my blogging award shelf is likely to remain quite bare, but expressions of affirmation from those I respect and admire are meaningful indeed.
