AWARD TIME!



Let me start off by thanking
Sharon K. Mayhew
at
Random Thoughts for this beautiful award! She has a wonderful blog, go visit, you'll enjoy the time you spend there.

The rules are

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason!
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

So...Seven Things About Me:
1) I'm a very private person. I believe in keeping my public life and my private life seprate. So, awards rules like this one are hard for me.
2) I love hot pink nail polish.
3) I like reality shows (survivor, big brother and all the house wives of...) because (as a writer) I use these shows to study the workings of human character.
4) I wear a beautiful silver bracelet on my left arm (gifted to me by my dearest friend M.V.) that says "Believe". She sent it in friendship to give me the strength and the will never to forget MY DREAMS. Thank you sweetie!
5) I use baking soda to brush my teeth and keep my gums healthy and my breath fresh. I don't like American toothpaste that has toxic fluoride in it...I don't like the film toothpaste leave on my teeth or the gum disease I'm a firm believer fluoride causes.
6) I'm almost sure my dear friend Cecile will come up with more interesting things to say in this award thing, because she's funnier than me. So go visit her at All I Want and More
7) This was like having a root canal done and I'm really REALLY glad it's over.

Now, I'm to name 15 Bloggers!!!! OMG...Well, let's see... I bless or curse ~

Mr. Valance
Vic Jones
Sia McKye
Cecile
Blodeuedd
Cheyenne
Christine G.
D.L. Hammons
Dottie
Jon Paul
Lea
Leontine
Natascha
M.V.
Liza

Enjoy your award and don't hate me for the rule of 15! I DIDN'T make the rules...

BTW- I have some other awards I was gifted with and that I'm grateful for but sadly never found the time to post or play...they came in when I was running one of my three week contest or when I was under reconstruction...so, I will put them up to thank those who sent them to me and hope you'll forgive me for not being able to post them on time. I want to gift them to all I've listed above....and just maybe you all won't hate me for listing you! LOL ..yes, it's a bribe!








Hugs

Baking soda, huh, never did hear bout that before, I lean something new every day.

Of course dunno if we have anything toxic in our tootpaste

Dottie (Tink's Place) said...

Hi Hawk!

Thanks for the lovely blog awards! I'm like you, it's hard to find the time to post everything, lol.

I know my Grams used to use baking soda, but I don't know if she does anymore. She lives with my parents now and I think she just kind of goes with the flow around the house, lol. It's harder to have to depend on people than you think it would be.

~Sia McKye~ said...

You want me to do WHAT? Sheesh. Do you know how hard it was picking out FIVE? Now you want me to pick 15 bloggers...AND talk about me...I like pink polish too, one down, lolol!

But thank you for the award.

Liza said...

Thanks for the blog award Hawk. I'll do my best to get something posted soon. Must say I'm about 5 post behind right now, so it might not be this week(unless I really catch up on my day off tomorrow).

My grandfather always used baking soda for toothpaste. Haven't thought of that in years. Might have to try it again.

Cecile said...

You are too much, you know that, lol!!!
I can not believe you had a hard time putting things down!! You love hot delicious eye candy... You love causing mischief when you can... let's see what else, lmbo....

Oh honey, you know I am picking with you!! Thank you so much for the award... And I right there with you... I am not that interesting... But I will think of something!!
I hope you and yours had a wonderful weekend!!!! Hugs to honey!! Talk soon!!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Ah, my number one girl...

Yap, good old fashioned baking soda...it also whitens your teeth, freshen breath and tightens your gums...keeps a healthy mouth!

You'd all be stunned to know what I use as mouth wash! But it's better than anything most people use! It whitens the teeth as well! Ah, but I'm keeping that for the next revealing award! LOL

Big hugs
Hawk

A man called Valance said...

'You'd all be stunned to know what I use as mouth wash! But it's better than anything most people use! It whitens the teeth as well! Ah, but I'm keeping that for the next revealing award! LOL'

Hmm, betcha I know what Cecile thinks it is.

Thanks Hawk. I appreciate your kindness, but I ain't an awards person. Truth is I'm kinda proud I ain't got any. Hope it don't hurt your feelings if I just slip it in my vest pocket and keep it there.

And seven things you didn't know about me...

1 I'm a grouch sometimes.

2 My nomination for best all-time comedy character goes to Fred Flintstone.

3 I was ten years old when I fell in love for the first time, with Jane Fonda in Cat Ballou.

4 I was once in a school swimming race.

5 I can't swim.

6 I once crossed the channel between France and England on my hands and knees.

7 If I could have been any rock star, in any era, I'd have been Jerry Lee Lewis. Beating the crap out of a piano and then setting fire to it always appealed to me.

M.V.Freeman said...

Hugs to you Hawk,
How wonderful to be awarded this!
You will be very dissapointed, but I cannot follow the rules...if you'd like, I will write seven interesting things about me.

I am working hard...and trying to move forward...and Believe..always! :-)

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Dottie, hey Sweetie!

You can only do your best to get to them when you get to them...as you can see...there were a lot of awards I never got to and have now just given them away without all the games to go with them...but it was the best I could do and those who gave them to me know I adore them even if I didn't get to play the award games...they know the awards are appreciated!

More important than the games is the award is just my way of saying...Tho' I may miss a post or two o.k., maybe three, I enjoy all of you that I visit when time allows...the awards show I care, I think about you and love your blogs!

big hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Sia honey...I'm sorry, I didn't make the rules...but you know the game of apple? Yeah, you know when someone whispers a word like Apple in someones ear then they turn around and whisper it in another person's ear and then it goes down the line until the last person says the word is "Adam piddled"...well, you could misunderstand what you read because we all know how late it was when you saw this and your sleepy eyes saw give this award away period....lol, you know what I mean?

big hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Liza! *HUGS*

It took me two weeks to post this award and I won't tell you how long on the others that follow in the post....shame on me, that's how long! So post when you post, darlin'

OH, OMG you'll love the affects of using baking soda for your teeth...so clean, so smooth, no build up that toothpaste puts on your teeth. It's awesome how white your teeth will become....and it doesn't cost anywhere even close to those costly whiteners...

xoxo
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Anonymous!

Glad you like my blog...I'll have to come over and check you out!

HAWK

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile! ((((CYBER BIG HUG)))

Hey sweetie!

See! I knew you'd think of a thousand things better then me!

EVERYONE READ CECILE'S COMMENT...THOSE THINGS ARE THINGS ABOUT ME AS WELL!

I just knew she'd think of better stuff...her mind works better than mine when it comes to games like this.

*Thank you sweetie*

LOL, Cecile...you're such a cutey!
Yes, we had a good weekend...and I know you did, but I want to hear all the details...so I'll call you soon! xoxoxo

love
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Mr. V....teeeheheheeee,

I'll bet you're right on what Cecile's thinking...

But, she's wrong. I will tell you it's what some women use on their hair. LOL....you'll never guess.

Hummm, I guess I'll have to get another award for you all to find out. evil LOL

Mr. V you can keep your awards anywhere you'd like...it's a free world.

1 I'm a grouch sometimes.
OH, I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT! WHY LOOK AT THAT HAPPY PICTURE OF YOU ON YOUR BLOG! ROTFLOL.

2 My nomination for best all-time comedy character goes to Fred Flintstone.
TEHHEEEE, NOT SOMEONE A GROUCH WOULD PICK.

3 I was ten years old when I fell in love for the first time, with Jane Fonda in Cat Ballou.
OH, AWESOME FLICK!

4 I was once in a school swimming race.
5 I can't swim.
ROTFLOL....OMG

6 I once crossed the channel between France and England on my hands and knees.
ON THE DECK OF A SHIP I HOPE...I'M JUST SAYING, YOU CAN'T SWIM

7 If I could have been any rock star, in any era, I'd have been Jerry Lee Lewis. Beating the crap out of a piano and then setting fire to it always appealed to me.
OH NO! NOT HIM...THAT MAN HAD WAY TOO MANY ISSUES IN HIS LIFE...BE SEXY ELVIS AND JUST ADD BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF THE PIANO AND SETTING FIRE TO THE LIST OF THINGS YOU DID AS THE WORLDS KING OF ROCK & ROLL.
ELVIS' LIFE WAS MORE FUN THAN JERRY'S.
BESIDES ELVIS WAS WAY MUCH MORE HADDNSOME AND SEXY!

Loved your answers....see I should think of stuff like that...it's far more interesting and fun to read than my baking soda!

big hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

M.V.,

Big hugs back at you Sweet One!

Ah...I'd love for you to write seven things about you and you can do it right here like Cecile and Mr. V did! This is fun!

fire away!

Love ya'
Hawk

M.V.Freeman said...

Thank you Hawk!

Here are my interesting things:

1. I have rapalled down a castle wall. At night.
2. If I could, I'd dress Goth/emo, with the hair, peircings, tattoos and cool clothes. BUT. I was born a bit too early (I figure a good 10-15 years later, and I'd be all about it) and funny, my job doesn't really approve. I wonder why...LOL
3. I don't like okra. (really not that interesting...but it's unique)
4. I used to collect superhero comic books.
5. Speaking of...My favorite comic book hero is Wolverine.
6. My favorite crayon color is Indian Red. Don't ask me, why, I've always thought it was cool.
7. I love to work out with kettle bells.

See, not so hugely interesting..but unique I think.

Hugs to you Hawk, may your week be glorious and everyone finds a some time to laugh!

M.V.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Congratulations on all of the awards and thanks for the shout out...BTW, I didn't make up the rules either, but I did enjoy reading the seven things about you. Now I'm off to check out some of your blog friends....

Jon Paul said...

HAWK--

Thanks so very much for the award and mention. I'm just doin' my thing all on my own, but it's nice to get noticed. :)

Somehow I never followed you, but that little situation has been rectified!

A man called Valance said...

Got it tucked in my vest pocket. Much appreciated, Hawk. (Enjoyed all the contributions here, too.)

Blodeuedd said...

One award post is coming up one day ;) I never miss a sweet thing like this

DL Hammons said...

Awww.....thank you!! I like thinking of myself as Versatile. Jack of all Trades (master of none). :)

Baking Soda?!?! That's gotta taste awful.

Lea said...

Hey Hawk;

Sorry I'm so late getting over here! It's been a crazy week between one thing and another.

Thank you so much for the blog award, that is so thoughtful and sweet of you. I'll add it as soon as I can.

I hope all is well.

Best
L

Houston A.W. Knight said...

MV!

Why your list is far FAR more interesting than mine! Oh...love #1 why did you do that at night?

Hum, never would have guessed you as a goth...I'd love to dress like a hard rock star...leather, wild hair and sexy legs to go in tight jeans!

Hate Okra! Oh I love the stuff! But then again I like alfalfa sandwiches...lol

What are kettle Bells?

super hero hugs ;-)
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Sharon...you're going to love all my blogger friends...each of them are wonderful in their own special way! And they all have great blogs!

Hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Jon Paul...

LOL...well I'm happy to hear you're going to join my little blogger family now...you'll find such diverse postings here and on all of my friend's blogs as well.

WELCOME!!!

Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Hey Mr. V!

Glad you've got your award...I'm still trying to get to your e but it could be a day or two more before I do...sick pup on my hands again...taking him to the vet tomorrow, then I should find some time.

Big hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Blodeuedd,

I'll be looking for the post to see what you've got!

;-)
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

DL,

I was just about to come over to get you and drag you back over here! LOL

So glad you came by.

Baking soda taste like salt, another thing that's good for brushing teeth...you know how many Native American's kept their teeth so white? They use cooled ash from the fire to rub across their teeth. Ash is a natural whitener.

o.k., Mr. Jack of all Trades - I'll be over to visit soon!

Enjoy your award!
Hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...
