The Bronze Award from Count Sneaky's Journal

Dear Grandpa, owner/operator of the wonderful blog: Life on the Farm has bestowed me this classic Award:

I love awards. Thank you, Grandpa!

If you would like to know more about Grandpa, please visit his blog and read the most enchanting tales about the tropical rainforest at the foot of the Malaysian mountain range. As Grandpa puts it, "Take a break, come over and join me for a cuppa, and stay a while, will 'ya -- coffee, tea, chlorophyll, s'il vous plait."

To learn more about the Bronze Award, check out its creator: Count Sneaky and his journal: Moral and refined, unique, and eccentric entertainment for Ladies and Gentleman of all ages...  I'm particularly impressed with his many tidbits of wisdom. Here's a few:
A thing of beauty may not not be 
a joy forever...but the payments will seem to last forever
Write...and the world laughs, cries,
and thinks with you.

Now it is my pleasure to pass along the Bronze Award to someone who has only just begun to blog, but who has been a consistent positive force in my career. Thank you for all you do, Vicki. 
Check out V. L. Smith's new blog at:  Turning Medieval. Life and matters literary from the perspective of an historical novelist in Central Pennsylvania. Vicki's just starting out, hasn't got a whole lot to say yet, but mark my words, if you like history, you must bookmark her site. 

Have a great day. 
ps. Vicki raises show dogs. 


  1. Congratulations Joylene.
    I'm so intrigued by Count Sneaky I'm going to have to have to read his journal and well done to your friend Vicki, I'll have a look at her blog too!

  5. Hi Sheila. So glad you could stop by. I know you're going to love Grandpa and Vicki's blogs. Their places are inviting, plus I always learn something new. Love when that happens. Thanks for stopping by, Sheila.

  6. "A bronze award... for whatever?" That's an intriguing award for sure, but congratulations. I'll have to check out Count Sneaky's Journal. I've just returned from Vicki's. Always happy to meet new cyber friends. :)

  7. Hi Carol. Raining in your parts? It's been raining here since last night. Everything is turning green, and the lake's rotting. Yay. Hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Now Count Sneaky does sound interesting! And I love the guy with the bow. Thanks for the Bronze Award though I am abashed to admit I don't what to do next! Help!

  9. Vlcki, go to Count's blog and he'll explain. Or copy what I did and just change the names. I've already been assured that my readers are stopping by to check out your site. Hope you get plenty of followers. I'm sure you will. I'll send you something in a second.

  10. Hey Joylene,
    How's it goin' eh? Yes, I'm practising my Canadian eh :)
    Anyhow, sorry I haven't been visiting your awesome site, lately. Getting prepared for my triumphant return. Bet you're really excited about that eh!
    Glad to see that the 'Count Sneaky's' award, first bestowed upon me, yes, shy and humble me and then forwarded by me onto Grandpa and thus, in turn, Grandpa, forwarded that thoughtful award, onto you. Hooray and yay, I say! :)
    I have checked out that fascinating site by that new blogger, Vicki and I've no doubt she will be thrilled beyond her wildest dreams, when she realises that I have linked into her site.
    I'm into a bit of history and it might take several knights to read her stories :)
    And aint Henry over at Count Sneaky's journal a delightful chap?
    See ya later eh.
    Kind wishes, Gary.

  11. Hey Gary, got your pjs packed yet? Don't forget your toothbrush. Several Knights.., haha, I get it!

    Henry is very kewl. Glad you were able to visit Vicki's blog. She's an awesome writer and if I can introduce her to everyone, I'm pleased. Take care, young feller.
