I just received this lovely award from Elizabeth Spann Craig at Mystery Writing is Murder (link on my list of faves to your left)

This is what she said - The Humane Award is to honor certain bloggers that I feel are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn't for them, my site would just be an ordinary blog. Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a regular basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendships through the blog world.

I am totally thrilled! I have now basked for awhile in the glow and imagined what I was wearing at the award ceremony ( black pants - like rice paddy farmers wear - with a turquoise cami and a square cut black jacket- all in raw silk) and what I ate at the awards dinner - trout cooked over an open fire with veggies in a tin foil packet and s'mores for dessert. Did I tell you the awards dinner was a cook-out? Yep, by the Grand Canyon. Geez it was fun! Then I stripped to my bathing suit (Gucci - turquoise) and jumped in the Colorado River to cool off. Man we had us a time, all us humane types - especially later when we were drinking Mango Margaritas...

So now to pass on the fun - here is my list of recipients of the Humane Award! These are the folks whose sites I rush to read and who always say hello when they drop by mine!

I also want to give this award to a few non-bloggers who often show up and read my blog and let me know what they're thinking - Jude in Perth, ON, Liz in PA, and Sue in Halifax! Yay y'all...

Now - I got some writing to do so there!

Wonderful awards banquet! I love your outfit and our menu at the dinner. And, of course, the Mango Margaritas at the post-show party.
