An Award For YOU!

Last week Cynthia Chapman Willis at Laptops and Lattes ... An Author's Journal presented me with the Great Comments Award.


Thank you, Cynthia. Cynthia posts mostly on Tuesdays and always has something interesting to say. She's a children's writer with a couple of books to her credit, so stop by and say hi.

The Great Comments Award is one I haven't seen before. According to Cynthia:
From what I understand, this is for regular and/or great blog comments, and I am to pass it on to 20 fabulous blog buddies—folks I’ve had the pleasure to “meet” by way of their wonderful comments and blogs.
I'll just say: 20? Seriously?

I cherish all of you who visit and comment. I couldn't pick twenty. All of you are special to me. Seriously.

So . . . I'm breaking the rules.

If you've ever commented at Under the Tiki Hut, the award is yours. You may pass it on in any way you choose. But please pass it on.

Part of the reason for blog awards is to introduce readers to other blogs. If you're looking for more blogs to visit, check my sidebar. Each blog name is a link. There are all kinds of blogs over there. Feel free to visit them all.

After you leave an award-winning comment here, of course :)

Congratulations on your award. Thank you, too, for passing it on to all of us. I wish I could think of something suitably worthy to say. :)

Passing an award on to 20 others is pretty heavy duty. I don't blame you for opting in the direction you did. But I think we all appreciate great comments.

Angela said...

Vielen Dank, Carol!
i am worried about you, as I heard there was much rain in Texas - I hope not in your area?

Carol Kilgore said...

Hi Angela - I'm just fine, but thanks for asking. We received a little over two inches of rain overnight in a huge and loud thunderstorm with much lightning and thunder. Our area did not flood, but many areas did.
