LIEBSTER BLOG AWARD from Kathryn Neff Perry

My dear friend Kathryn Perry at Katts Komments awarded me with the Liebster Blog Award. What an honour. Did I mention I love awards? I feel like Sally Fields every time I receive one. "You like me--You really like me!!!" Hey, what's not to like? I'm adorable. And every chance I get I remind my family:  "Yes, my dear sons, your mother is adorable." You can imagine their response. Yet, when I say this to my grandchildren, they nod. Hmm?

But I digress. Please take a moment to visit Katt at her blog:

Katt is even more adorable than I am. Thank you, Katt, for this wonderful award.
The rules:

1. Thank the giver of the award and link back to them.
2. Give the Liebster to five bloggers and let them know with a comment to their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award onto your blog.
4. Have faith your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. Have blogging fun!

1. Hilary Melton-Butcher,

3. Keith Pyeatt,
4. Carol Zampa,
5. Cher Green,

  1. I'm honored for you to hand this award to me!

    Thank you, my friend!

  2. You're more than welcome, Carol. It's been a pleasure reading your blog.

  3. Hi Joylene .. got carried away - but am here now .. I feel very guilty as I'm hopeless with awards .. I have two outstanding .. and must acknowledge them and yours ..

    You're great .. I love being here and can't wait to read your book .. and be with you as you go along your journey ..

    Thank you so much .. I will love displaying it shortly (dare I say it?) ... enjoy Friday and see you soon .. Hilary

  4. Hilary, there's no rush. You put it up when you have time. It just happened that I was caught up when I received my award, so I was able to blog about it right away. But that doesn't always happen.

    Take care.

  5. Congrats on being Liebsterized! You so deserve the award and attention. :)

  6. Thanks Laila. And thank you for your support. It means a lot.

  7. Hi Joylene,
    What's this? You've won a 'Lobster Blog' award? Good grief, we have blogging cats, blogging dogs such as ummm....Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star and now, lobsters! And, I say, before I clam up, why not. Something to read that gives you claws for thought, eh.
    Okay, congratulations on receiving that must have award, the 'Liebster Blog Award'. You know what, I think you would be just perfect in the starring role if they ever made a movie of the 'Flying Nun, if you know what I mean.....
    Congrats to those extremely worthy folks you have forwarded the award onto. And now and gosh, I shall grace your friend at 'Katts Komments' with a visitation from shy, humble and very unknown me.
    Take care eh and keep smiling cause we like you, we really, really like you :)

  8. Congrats on the award, Joylene! You deserve it! :) Congrats to the new winners too!

    Have a wonderful weekend,

  9. Thanks, my friend. If anyone's worthy of awards, it's you. Keep up the great work.

  10. Hi Joylene .. I see I forgot to congratulate you on your award - I'm obviously having a few blanks here! Well done ...

    Great fun thought about your sons - but I have to say they ... whatever they might think ?!?!!?! they're bringing their kids up to think their GrandMama is rather special - so something's working ..

    Cheers and have a fun weekend .. Hilary

  11. Congrats on the award. Thank you so much for passing it on to me. I'm honored.

    Best wishes,

  12. Hey Joylene! What a wonderful surprise and honor to see that you chose me for the Liebster Blog Award! Thank you!!!! You made my day! Your kindness couldn't have come at a better time. Thank you so much - I'm humbled that you picked me out of all the great blogs out there.

  14. @Gary, lobster? Yes, how'd you know? LOL. Thanks for the thoughts and good wishes. Say hi to Penny.

    @Thanks, Karen. Hope your weekend is great.

    @Keith, my dear friend, thanks!

    @Hilary, yes, my sons are used to my humour. Their philosophy is to always agree with "mudder".

    @Cher, you're very welcome. Keep up the great work.

    Honestly, you guys make my day every day. It's much nicer world with you all in it.

  15. @Lauren, you're so welcome. Glad you like the award. You have a lovely blog. Happy weekend.

    @Lola, welcome. So glad you stopped by. Have a happy weekend.

  16. And my humble friend, did you mention how FUNNY you are????
    I do love you! You ARE adorable.
    Hugs and blessings

  17. Seriously, Katt. I do tell everyone who'll listen that I am really am adorable, I'm not just saying that.

    Hugs back at cha!

  18. Congrats again on the award! You deserve it!!!

  19. Thanks, Lola. And thanks for following. Have a wonderful weekend.

  20. CONGRATS on receiving the Liebster Blog Award! Is Liebster the name of the person who created the award? Just wondering. Have an AWESOME day!

  21. Hi Susanne. You're right, it was named after a person, rumour has it that it might be from Germany. Things always seem to be changed over time, but originally the recipient was asked to choose 3 bloggers. What I should mention also is there is no obligation to continue this award. It's a personal decision and not reflective of the blogger who passes it on.

  22. Congratulations! You are adorable! :) I always reminds my kids that I am too and that I'm clever and funny. They have the mistaken idea that I'm embarrassing. LOL

  23. "A, you're adorable; B, you're so beautiful; C, you're a cutie full of charm; D, you're my ... " Oh, wait. That doesn't work. It's a love song, isn't it? Well, you're a great Ally, Buddy, Companion and Darn good friend, anyway, and very deserving of any award that honours lobsters, as long as it honours you, too. :) Congrats on being adorable ... I mean, on being Liebsterized! ;)

  24. I don't know if this comment will get thru - your blog hates me lately. Anyway - congrats on the award - hope the book's sellin like mad.

  25. Amanda, Carol, and last but not least David... thanks!

    Hope you're all enjoying the last of August. Didn't it go by too fast!
