Now, there are certain requirements of this award which I've copied and pasted from Maureen's blog:
✦ Link back to the blogger who bestows the award. (✓) (Writing Without Paper)
✦ Display the image from the award creator (see graphic above). (✓)
✦ Pass the award on to five (5) other bloggers who must follow these rules. (✓)
✦ Link the post back, so Jillsmo can follow its trajectory. (✓)
And then the fifth, and not so easy to accomplish requirement 'cause it means I gotta tell a lie, or two. Four to be exact...
✦ List five (5) facts, four (4) of which must be lies. (✓) (see below)
But first, the best part, the links of five bloggers who, hopefully, will follow these rules and be equally as delighted as me to receive the award!
Drum roll please....
And now I sweep out onto stage wearing the latest red gown from Versace. No wait, that's the Academy Awards and that's my eldest daughter in five years.
I'm still in my flannel pjs still, hair mussed, feet in snuggly slippers and coffee steaming in a mug beside me on my desk!
And, before I get to the winners, I just want you to know, this isn't easy (not just the four lies part) The name five recipients out of all the amazing writers and photographers and poets out there in the blogosphere. So, my goal is to give a cross-section -- an essayist/poet, a community activist/builder/writer, a combo (writer/photographer/poet), a photographer, and a humorist.
And so, without further ado.... The recipients are are.... (let's try that drum roll again)
- Glynn @ Faith. Fiction. Friends.
- Josie @ Two Shoes in Texas
- Diane@ Contemplative Photographer
- Susan @ Just a Moment
- Brandi @ Drama, Conspiracies and just general Awesomeness
And now, for the tricky part...
A fact amidst four lies about me.
+ I had a walk-on part in The Tempest when I was 24 because my bosses wife was the Stage Manager at the Citadel Theatre where it was playing and I won a bet at a dinner party. ( I walked from stage left to stage right and disappeared off stage)
+ While studying at the University of Strassbourg I met the boy who would become my first husband.
+ I drove a pink Cadillac for a year in 1979 because I was selling Mary Kay and did really, really well.
+ I currently do not own a red scarf -- though I do own at least 85 scarves. (note the currently. Now that I've realized my lack -- I'll have to fix it!)
+ My second toe is longer than my big toe on my right foot, but not on the left. (go figure).
So there you have it. Can you detect the one truth amidst the four lies. If you can..... comment back and I'll announce a winner on Tuesday AND!!!! There's a prize! I won't say what it is until I announce the winner and the prize is in the mail.
Looking forward to your responses.
And -- just so you know, yesterday's art gallery opening was a shining success. We sold 14 pieces of the 25 on display and three of the artists were in attendance -- and over the moon with gratitude and happiness for the success of the event.
Here's a few photos to enjoy! -- Taken from my Iphone as the camera went dead on the firsts shot!
