Semper Fidelis

Well even though I have told him I cannot manage awards  , Shaun    of   has seen fit to nominate  me for, The  Semper Fidelis Award ! So thank you Shaun!!

The Rules:

  • Add the Semper Fidelis Award logo somewhere on your blog.
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Nominate 5 bloggers who’s loyalty and friendship you value and
  • you consider being part of your ‘pack of wolves’ on WordPress.
  • Post something special for each one of your nominees  and dedicate it to them.
  • This can be a quote, saying, poem, picture, anything you think that would fit that person.
  • Let the nominees know that you’ve nominated them.

So what did Shaun say about me ?

He said I was :   Always there to be honest and to have fun, someone I look up to on Word Press more than she knowns.

This was a lovely surprise so thank you Shaun.

So who do I nominate………….. everyone?? apparently not. I can only  nominate 5 so this will be difficult. Here we go and in  no particular order.

1 Pen of  Poems and stuff    Pen believes in the same things as me  eg.     I really appreciate Pen’s opinions and I love the  knowledge and wisdom of her poems. Thank you Pen. xxx

2 Matron Bell

    A Good and wise friend , someone I truly  just chat to ! She never ceases to  amaze me with her poems and stories! Thank you Matron. 😉  xxx

3 gigoid    My favourite  old curmudgeon, his words are all Pearls pf wisdom and his poetry  is profound, funny and even thoughtful.  Here is his song, he has lived.

 Thank you Sir. xxxx

4 Noeleen of wordsfallfrommyeyes     An already published author  The James Diaries   and she is now writing about another part of her life.  When I read Noeleen’s post I always feel as if we are sitting together in her kitchen, drinking coffee while she tells me of her life. Thank you Noeleen.  xxx  

5 One of the first poets I met here on wordpress, he has influenced and inspired me, challenged and helped me to grow. He is not always around but his work is a force to be reckoned with. Zumpoems   I do not know enough about him to set a video for him  so I shall use Thank  you by Alanis Morisette

   Thank you Zum  who and where ever you are . xxx

Special Mention To Martin Shone    he does not do awards so I am not nominating him, I am just drawing everyone’s attention to his talents. He is a wordy romantic, sometimes steamy poet!  Thank you Martin. xxxx    

Thank you again Shaun ,a wonderful , brave and honest man!

        Yes doing awards is time consuming and I have so many award posts to do. You wouldn’t believe I am working on one right now. I have set my own rules which means no rules which is convenient for people as they can accept the honor but don’t have to do anything else. I am working on it since yesterday. My post is waiting to be looked at. I understand the frustration. Well dear enjoy the special award from a special person, Shaun is a nice person. Take care and stop feeling guilty i am your friend and I know one cannot nominate everyone. We all understand. So relax and take care.

        Yes I know and that reason, not being able to nominate everyone and the amount of time they take to is why I decline them nowadays. I must be off to bed now it is gone midnight. So thank you and good night. 😉 oh yes Shaun is a good guy.
