smile-type thoughts

I have been given the "Stylish Blogger Award" from my friend, Tracy, author of Cooked Heads - a blog that if you haven't yet checked it out, go ahead and do. It's humorous and rich, and makes me smile every time I visit. Hers is one of the precious few blogs that I have in my Reader - and that is so for a reason. Quite a few reasons, actually. So go check it out and you'll soon have plenty of your own!

Though my blog isn't about "style," with "stylus" as a base, she felt confident in passing the award over to me, anyway - and I truly appreciate it. Assuring the recipients there's nothing we need to do in order to accept it, other than hopefully think "smile" type thoughts, I wanted to respond anyway. It could be called the "Stylish Blogger Award" or "Randall" or "Juanita" - it just doesn't matter - because any award that I'm given, the way I see it, comes from, and is all about, spreading the love. They usually come with different rules (or suggestions?) for accepting, though I never quite follow them. Instead, like I'm doing now, I direct people to the blogs on my "Favorites" list and tell you that they are the ones that I read and love and feel are worthy of countless awards. And our time.

Thank you, Tracy! Just so you know, with or without an award, Cooked Heads (or your life/adventure/party/trip - Spirit! - in other words) never fails to bring me smile-type thoughts. That's just what you do.


Seven factoids about yours truly:

1. I like crushed ice.

2. I wear size 11 tennis shoes.

3. Often I will claim that I don't like a food I've never even tried.

4. I have an oscillating fan blowing on me pretty much year round, regardless of the temperature.

5. Someone I knew in elementary school, that I wasn't particularly close to, has been a recurring character in many spiritually significant dreams that I've had over the past 20 years.

6. I loved Nick at Nite in the early- to mid-90's. I stayed up late at my dad's on the weekend and would watch all those classic shows from back in the day: Patty Duke, Bewitched, Dobie Gillis, Donna Reed, Dick Van Dyke, Mister Ed, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Green Acres, etc.

7. Eyes closed, right before sleep, is my favorite time of day.


  1. I agree with Tracy: your blog is indeed stylish. There are many ways to be stylish and style is of depth and meaning.

  2. I want to know very very much more about your number five too! spill, boy :P
