Petrel41 nominated me for my first Versatile Blogger Award.  I am not sure what one needs to do to be nominated for this.  I think I probably should qualify for a scatter-brained blogger award because I cover so many topics.  I do thank Petrel 41 for nominating me and I will try to follow the guidelines sent to me:

I have thanked Petrel41 for the nomination.  I cannot figure out how to add the award to my blog – I have found an image, but have no clue how to add it to my site.  Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

In nominating other wordpress sites I would have used some of the same ones nominated by Petrel41 but as that seems redundant, I will choose others that I think meet the criteria:

Parga Hellas


Sorry I Can’t Stay Long

Hella Sydney


Moment Matters

Secular Morality



Some of the blogs I look forward to each day such as niasunset and Anne Novek’s blog have already received all kinds of awards and, while I know they are eminently qualified, I believed it best to spread the fame.  I would have nominated Postcards from Colorado but I was unsure whether that site meets the criteria.

About me:  I really enjoy writing my blog, riding my bike 5-6 times per week and doing distance running 3-4 times per week.  I enjoy taking pictures and am off on a shoot later today.  I am a Military Veteran, having served for four years in the US Air Force as a Russian linguist.  I live in Austin, Texas most of the year and spend the summers in Colorado at a very high altitude.  I have two children and 4 grandchildren, with one more due in September.  Life has been good to me.  I enjoy reading your posts and look forward to getting to see more of your work.

Finally, I am supposed to post the rules – so, here goes:

1. In a post on your blog, nominate 10 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award. 2. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award. 3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog. 4. In the same post, share 10 completely random pieces of information about yourself. 5. In the same post, include this set of rules. 6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

Keep on blogging1
