Yesterday morning presented me with a very nice start to my day! Well it was really Sue, who resides in Australia who provided the surprise, by sending me this award.
The mission behind this award is as follows:
"This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space,time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut,even more friendships are propagated."
Isn't that a wonderful sentiment? No wonder I felt all warm and fuzzy inside! Then I read the fine print, and she included my kitty-cats in the reason that I got this honor. .now, does that mean that I have to share this with them? If so, that is going to create a BIG problem for me.
I tell them that, and there is just not going to be any point in trying to live in the same house with them anymore! (Unless I agree to move into a nanny suite and to eat nothing but tuna and chicken left overs) They are arrogant, and conceited, and already think that they have me wrapped around their furry little paws. I can understand cat language better than I can speak English, and I know that they think that my whole purpose here on earth is to make sure that their little creature comforts are met with the highest standards. And now that I think about it, maybe they are right, but I'm sure not going to admit that to them!
And now I get an award because of them? No, no way am I going to tell them about this. I'd never have a moment's peace to contemplate life's meaning. Although, they could probably lay that out for me in a span of a few minutes. They tell me that I have a tendency to over think these things anyway. But you get my point.
So I do thank you, Sue, for bestowing this award on me, and I do hope that you'll forgive me for not sharing it with my favorite felines. I know that they would be head-over-tails thrilled with the honor if they knew. So I'll give them a little extra freshly grown catnip to help compensate for my exclusion.
As tradition holds, I'm supposed to pass this along to people that I think are worthy of this accolade. To be honest, this is the absolute hardest part of getting these awards. I always feel heart felt warmth in receiving them, but boy, I hate choosing from among all of the wonderful blogs that I read. .they are all winners in my book.
So, I'm going to send this out to all of you!! Copy and paste it, then add it to your own blog! You DO deserve it!!
Now, I see that Sue has moved on to start a new blog. Do you suppose she KNEW the problems that she was going to cause, and is on the run, trying to hide from me? Naaaah, she'd never do that to me.
