Nominated April 26, 2013 by SwittersB & Fly Fishing

I was completely taken by surprise and honored when I learned that Gary at SwittersB & Fly Fishing nominated my efforts for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, Gary! Please take a moment and visit  his fabulous blog. The Rules of the Award are:

1.  Obviously, thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog

2.  Nominate 15 blogs/bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award, link to their page and leave a comment that they have been nominated

3.  Share 7 things about yourself

So, without further ado, I nominate the following 15 blogs in random order for your viewing entertainment and enjoyment. This is in no way a full and complete list of the blogs I enjoy!

The World’s Top 10 of Anything and Everything

Genealogy Lady


A Hundred Years Ago


Rosemarie in Europe 2013


Robyn Graham Photography


Brandy Heineman

The Armchair Genealogist

Dear Myrtle

And lastly, 7 things about me!

1.  I’ve been retired for just about one year and I’m still trying to figure it out

2.  I currently have 2 dogs and 5 cats, all rescues (I don’t claim the neighborhood strays that eat here!)

3.  I love my God, my family, and my country and would defend them all to the death

4.  I have become obsessed with tracing my ancestors

5.  I love the beach and I love the mountains (I am a closet snowbird!)

6.  I love music, dancing and laughter. If I had to choose between, I’d choose laughter

7.  I love to write. If it’s fiction, I have trouble getting it from my head to the page

Thank You!

    Your very first one, well congratulations, that is fantastic. Thank you for my nomination, I don’t really do awards, but I will give you a nod on my blog in the near future.

  3. Thank you so, so much Linda, for this award but I am afraid I have already been nominated for it and attached it to my website, but I still am very grateful for you choosing me and a little bit honoured to have it again so I will follow the rules and pass it on. I hope this is OK.

    Heartfelt congrats!!

  5. Congratulations! You are ahead of me in the pet department. I have four cats and was thinking that is just enough . . . Lol.

    Congratulations Linda! And, thank you ever so much for the award. I can’t thank you enough. I am inundated with lacrosse events this weekend but will post recognition of you on my blog some time in the next few days! Blessings, Robyn

    Congratulations on being recognized for quality writing! It’s a pleasure for me to stumble upon your blog simply because you “liked” mine. I appreciate the visit and the like! Best wishes for continued success. My husband is quite interested in all things Civil War, so he, too, will be glad we’ve found you!

    • Thank you for your very kind words. Since I’ve started delving into my family history, I’m finding so many of my ancestors were involved in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and the Civil War. I was never all that interested in history until I started doing my genealogy.

    Thank you for nominating A Hundred Years Ago. I’m honored that you think it is worthy of this award.
