If I had put my mother on the case, I would have known last week that it was the lovely Owlhaven and Toddled Dredge that nominated my “Ode To Mary Tyler Moore” post for a Perfect Post award. (Is there a limit to how many links one can put in a single sentence?) Due to my limited access to the internet and not my semi-natural blonde tendencies, it took me several days to find out who had this lapse of judgement and then a full week to get around to sending a thank you note. In the south, the only thing worse than not getting a thank you note out on time is putting dark meat in your chicken salad. It’s just bad form.
Veronica Mitchell who writes Toddled Dredge is so smart and funny and reads lots and lots books (and not the cardboard kind either) and uses words that the rest of us would have to look up and even knows what they mean, so you can imagine how honored I was that she thought anything I had to say was noteworthy! And Owlhaven – she has like 26 kids or something and is so pretty and never sticks her foot in the toilet, so again, that she would bother with my little blog – I am astonished and grateful all at the time time!
Thank you thank you for the nomination ladies. You have put wind in my sails!
If you haven’t been to Owlhaven or Toddled Dredge, treat yourself and go now!
