Premio Meme Award

This little framed beauty, the Premio Meme Award was presented to me by none other than Audrey, from Stage3! Who, me? Merci bien, mon cher ami! This was unexpected to say the least. This is the second 'Award' that Audrey has graciously passed along to me in the last month. And in that month, I have witnessed an amazing transformation of sorts. In the past month, Audrey has become a public speaker, a very able participant in the Friday Shoot Out series and has shown a marvelous sense of humour. She has also expressed a true sense of humility and gratitude towards all of her blogging friends she has made over the past few months. I would be an idiot to not accept this from Audrey. Thank you so very much Audrey!

The rules for this one are to name 7 things about myself, and then to pass it on to 7 other people. Now what can I tell you that you don't already know?

  1. I was born with a broken nose. Seriously! They didn't want to operate on it when I was a kid and then when I started to play contact sports they told me to wait until I was finished playing sports. I'm not finished playing yet! 10 years ago I had a piece of one of my ribs inserted in my nose to help me breath better. Didn't work too well!

  2. Until this year, I have never looked at age as anything but a numbr. This year I'm looking at it as a milestone of sorts and have come to realize that I am on the other side of the hill. As you can see from the above, I am not done playing yet!

  3. I will probably not live long enough to read all of the books that I have collected. It doesn't mean I'm going to stop buying them or collecting them, I just may not get a chance to read all of them.

  4. The one person I regret not meeting in my life, was my Grandfather. My mother's father to be exact. He was killed in the Second World War. I have only 1 picture of him. In it he is wearing his uniform. It haunts me and for some reason, I believe that it is he who watches over me. Strange eh!

  5. I would love to see a collection of Blogger Poetry in a Coffee Table Book, published, with the proceeds going towards something that will do some good in this world. 2 of my poems were published about 12 years ago in a collection that was used to generate income for some local community groups. I think it would be nice to do something like that on a bigger scale.

  6. Life is a series of lessons. I am not always going to pass those lessons. I'm human and thus, prone to making mistakes. Mistakes are good; they give me something to work on....and I have a lot to work on.

  7. I love good food and so long as I can still see my feet when I look's all good!

Now here is where I am going to change the rules a bit. My prerogative. I would like to make this a bit of an open Award. Anybody who sees this Award and wants it can take it. However, they do have to complete a list of at least seven things about themselves and share it with whomever crosses their blog. They should still acknowledge where the Award came from but the point is that they share a little of themselves with the rest of blog land. Take care everybody and thanks once again to Audrey.

Congrats Bogey. If you had a ring for each award you would already have one hand filled including your thumb.

Well deserved Bogey! I love your list, in particular the bit about yur Grandfather - I agree, he probably is watching over you. And also the bit about the blogger poetry. That is a FANTASTIC idea!

Thank you so much for your kind words about my blog. I appreciate them so much, and I am very happy to read your perceptions. Thanks!

Congratulations and thanks for the sweet revelations. Now, go read those books you've collected. What are you waiting for?

Lover of Life/ Nancy said...

The blogger poetry is a great idea. Not a poet myself, I certainly admire it in others, especially my dear bloggy friends.

Congrats on the award!

Bogey said...

Thanks Michell, yes it is.

It's a good thing I don't do rings then eh James! Thank you sir.

No, thank you Audrey. You're contribution far outweighs mine to be sure.

Thanks Amel, and welcome back. Hope you had a nice vacation.

Thanks Natalie, much appreciated.

Thanks Rosaria, it's nice to feel appreciated. Life is a little hectic right now hence, the books take a back seat. I will end up going on a reading spurt once I'm caught up on things. They will be read.

Well, hello Nancy. Now if only we could get others on board. I think we could have something here. Thanks for your comments.

Thanks all, Bogey

I'm late! Congratulations on this fine award. It was fun to read your list and I agree about the books, I am thinking the same thing! And what a wonderful idea about the poetry.
