The Sunshine Award   2 comments

Sunshine AwardMy thanks to Sarah Angleton, the practical historian, for nominating me for this award.  You’ll really like Sarah’s blog … here’s how she describes herself:

I am a thirty-something wife, mom, and writer of historical fiction. When I’m not busy working on what is sure to be the finest novel my mom has ever read, I blog about history, one quirky anecdote at a time.

And she does … today’s summary of the history of Erector sets, along with the U-238 Atomic Energy Lab play set from the same manufacturer, is a great read!  Please enjoy!

Here are the Sunshine award questions asked of each recipient:

  1. What is your favorite color?    It keeps changing.  Must be about aging.  Green.
  2. What is your favorite animal?  Homo Sapiens.
  3. What is your favorite number?    Pi, as it defines an unending circle.
  4. What is your favorite drink?    Diet Coke.  Wait.  Whiskey.  Wait.  A Cadillac Margarita.  Wait.  Diet Coke.  Wait.  Elijah Craig 18-year old Whiskey.  Wait.  Diet Coke. 
  5. What is your favorite pattern? Test Pattern
  6. What is your passion?    When you do something, do it right.
  7. Do you prefer a good movie or a good book?    No question: a good book.
  8. Would you rather give or receive a gift?    Why is that a choice?  Both, please.
  9. What is your favorite day? Again, it keeps changing.  It used to be Wednesday, but now it’s Saturday.
  10. What is your favorite flower? Hibiscus.  So complex, so fragile.

Other than the practical historian, I want to nominate some of the blogs that I most enjoy reading.  They run the gamut from photography to recipes to humor to armchair philosophy. Some are new, some are less new.  Some post daily, and some are less frequent.  All are great blogs.  I hope you’ll enjoy them, too.  And, in no particular order….

  1. Oh thank you! Ill get on it this week too been crazy round here!

  2. Sunshine Award…I like the sound of that…Sunshine Award…just has a lilt to it. (Thanks also for the reminder). I’d like to answer questions 4-8-10 right here in my reply. Water (then unsweetened Iced Tea), Giver (why I wear a necklace with the word Volunteer inscribed in stone), and finally I’m “taking the fifth” since it might incriminate Corinth’s flower lady. And BTW, I’m with you totally on #6…if you can’t do it right, don’t do it at all. Just ask my kids on that one.

    Thank you for your support and encouragement.
