"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.*

*Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll

Last week Nancy at N.R. Williams, Fantasy Author offered a choice of three different awards to her recent new followers, of which I am one.

Given the title of this post, you're probably not surprised I chose this one:


I love cats, even though I'm allergic to the little sweeties. So I enjoy them in other ways.

Not only do I love cats, but I'm lazy. This was the only award choice that didn't come with requirements that I actually DO anything :)

Since Nancy passed the award to new followers, I'll do that as well. If you see your photo included in the mug shots in the right column, this award is for you. If you become a follower anytime this week, this award is for you.


All you have to do is smile.

Both the award and your post made me smile! You chose a good one.

I'm not allergic to cats, but we discovered the hard way that my son is.

Life 101 said...

Ah! I love this quote.
Alice: Which road should I take?
Cat: Where do you wish to go?
Alice: I don't know.
Cat: Well then, either road will take you there

Now powerful is that?

Good post girlfren.

Carol Kilgore said...

Conda - Cool. Does Puck like kitties?

Life 101 - Sometimes it's the simple things.

Hart Johnson said...

I love that smiling kitty! And it cracks me up that you picked the 'easy one' and are honest enough to say that's why *snort*

Lydia K said...

That is a CUTE award! Congrats Carol!

Carol Kilgore said...

Hart - Easy Peasy. That's me. Whenever possible, I reserve my brain power for writing. Blogging is fun time :)

Lydia - That little kitty makes me smile every time I look at it.

Linda Kage said...

Ahh, the best kind of award. Just accept it and be happy, no passing it on, no filling out lies or truths about yourself, no giving up your firstborn. Sounds like a winner. Love the picture.

Congrats!!!

Holly Ruggiero said...

Congrats. I love the do nothing awards!

Lola Sharp said...

I wish all awards came sans requirements. :)

I'm allergic too, yet we have a cat now...and I am so in love with her it's embarrassing. So, I drink a lot of liquid Benedryl (sp?) and wash my hands after petting her (and careful not to touch my face until I get hands washed)...yeah, I still itch and sneeze, but it's super worth it. She makes me silly happy. (I love my dogs, too...but I swear, she's different.)

Have a delightful weekend, Carol! :)
Hugs,
Lola

Talli Roland said...

Talli - You're welcome.

Chris - I get it. Arf and Woof do, too :)

Claudia Del Balso said...

Congrats on the award! I didn't care much for cats before until my two kitties found me. They adopted me ;) Now I'm a sucker for cats! My husband and I love both cats and dogs. Thank heavens we're not allergic so we can enjoy them. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Laura Eno said...
