The Seven-Awards-in-One Award

dragons-loyalty-awardTHE SEVEN-AWARDS-IN-ONE AWARD
Thank you (again!) to Irene at for my fifth nomination … this time, for the Seven Awards-in-One Award. Irene hails from Australia, a land that’s known around the world for its friendly inhabitants, possesses an incredibly diverse and beautiful range of fauna and flora, and is blessed with natural wonders on an eye-poppingly massive scale. I always set aside a bit of time to read her stories (which can often take me down memory lane, too!)

1. Display the logo(s) on your sidebar.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State 7 things about yourself.
the-cracking-crispmouse-bloggywog-award4. Nominate 15 (or so) bloggers for this award.
5. Notify the nominees of their nominations.

1. I love Japanese food — especially salmon sashimi.
2. I’m an amateur birder and hobby photographer.
3. I am learning to speak, write, and read Spanish.
4. I have piloted a single-engine propeller plane (a Cessna Piper), and my co-pilot has lived to tell the tale.
5. I constantly re-read the best parts of books I own to pieces. Literally (no pun intended).
shine-on-award6. If I won the lottery, I would keep former racehorses.
7. I had aspirations in my youth to be a dog trainer, having familiarized myself with 200+ breeds.

While due diligence has been done to make sure that yours is not an award-free blog, please accept my apologies (if I have missed the obvious), and in the spirit in which the nomination is given. Thank you!
