Special Edition -- I Got a Liebster?

Okay, y'all!  I have just been notified by Roseanne Dowell, that I have been awarded the Liebster.  Ro explained that Liebster is German for "favorite" or "dearest" and like Ro, I'll be anybody's favorite, any day of the week and twice on Sunday!  Many, many, thanks!  The intention of this award is to draw attention to blogs worthy of note, currently without a lot of followers, and a condition of acceptance is to post it (doing so now) and share it with five other blogs.  Wow.  Now, that's tough.  I'm assuming that it can't go back to the person bestowing it or the person who bestowed it on them, so okay, that eliminates two of the folks who'd make it even tougher to choose whom to share the Liebster with. 

So after much deliberation, not lightly undertaken, I'm bestowing my five Liebster choices on:

Lin Holmes,
for Lin's Own Mining for Gold, wherein she celebrates all things worthy of celebration;

Barbara Ehrentreu,
for Barbara's Meanderings, wherein she meanders into the hearts of her readers;

Pat McDermott,
for Put the Kettle On, wherein she makes Ireland and the Irish legends live again;

Karen Cote,
for Karen's Chaise Lougne, wherein she gives us all the gift of each other's voices; and

Miss Mae,
for Ahoy Gum Drop, wherein she brings to life that zaniest of all unofficial official reporters I. B. Nosey and makes me laugh till I roll on the floor.

Cyberspace is so wonderful.  New friends from coast to coast and throughout the world!  Now, I was supposed to:

1. Post this award on your blog. (Check)

2. Thank and link to the person who gave it to you. (Check)

3. Pass it on to five bloggers who have less than 200 followers. (Check, except I'm not entirely sure about the number of followers.)

4. Comment on those five people's blogs to share the good news. (Check, except, I'm taking Ro's easy way out and e-mailing them!  And y'all know I comment every chance I get every time you post, so I really think that oughta count!)

I love you all and thanks for making my world such a more varied and wonderful place!


  1. Great choices, Gail

  2. Gail, thank you so much!!! Love your style and I will post this proudly on my blog today!! Can we use some of the same people or do we have to choose others?

  3. You are such a Sweetheart. Thank you for this honor. More than 200 followers? I am really behind the times. What must one do to stomp for followers? The most I have on any of my 12 blogs is 48, I think. Since I have an easier time stomping for everybody else, I guess I'll just continue moseying along and see where that takes me. 200? At this rate, I'm gonna have to LIVE to 200.

    Love You Gail, from the bottom of my Spirit,

  4. Congrats, Gail, but you chose some of the people I was going to award the Liebster to...gotta be quick around here. This is so much fun. Enjoy!!

  5. Miss Gail, my eagle eye friend, from all the gang at Gum Drop Island, thank you for this coveted award!

  6. Thanks Gail. Now all I have to do is figure out how to follow the recipe :-)

  7. Guess my comment didn't take the first time around.

    Just wanted to say CONGRATS on your award!
