Well gosh darn it anyhow. I'm blushing aren't I?

One of my favorite blog-haunts is none other then Gem-ospohy by Gale Martin aka Gem. What a surprise it was to open my bookmarks, ckick on Gem's Blog (that's what I have it saved as because l'espirit de l'escalier didn't seem to want to cut and paste properly, and I haven't got around to renaming the link Gem-osophy) and find that Gem had tagged the Honk'n'Holl'r with the Thinking Blogger Award. Founded by ilker yoldas of 'the thinking blog', The Thinking Blogger Awards is a very simple meme for the purpose of bringing forward blogs that have made you think. I think ilker says it better:

"Please, remember to tag blogs with real merits, i.e. relative content, and above all - blogs that really get you thinking!" --ilker yoldas

Thank you Gem

(I'm still blushing)

But, this meme was started February 11, 2007, and is gaining headway fast. There are many blogs that I regularly visit and would love to tag with this, all my close blog friends have recieved this recognitition. Lately, there have been a few bloggers that have visited either of my blogs and commented, or otherwise got my attention.

The Thinking Blogger Awards (meme)

"If you choose to carry this meme forward, remember to tag only those bloggers who stimulate your cortex....or something like that. Please make sure you pass the rules to the blogs you are tagging.

----ilker yoldas of the thinking blog

The participation rules are simple:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award'

The Thinking Blogger Award

So here's my list of blogs that have made me think for one reason or another

Stop in and give them a look.

Jana's Jounal and Sketch Blog by Jana Bouc. I've just recently found Jana's blog and her art is wonderful and she shares her techiques and art experience with her readers.

Astronomical Drawings by Sebastian Lehner. This is one of the most unique blogs that I've encountered. Sebastian is a Medical student, but his hobby is astonomy. On his blog he draws the most detailed drawings from his telescope, and includes all relevant information about that drawing.

Angel Feathers Tickle Me (She goes by many names Magical Enchantress, Beloved Princess, and guardian of all that enter my garden of hopes and dreams, but I'll just call her angel). I first encountered Angel, by her leaving a comment on my art blog, but it was more than a comment, it was a poem. A peom that was her post for the day. Angel's blog combines art and inspirational writing. Everytime I visit, I leave with a smile.

Blubloodunlimited by Blublood. A well rounded blog that he calls his "manic journal of unlimited things". It includes one of my new favorite comment games he calls "I say...and you think...?" which is a very simple word association game that can lead to some hilarious results.

And Finally

WTIT: The Tape Radio Blog by Bud Weiser. Bud is one of the most creative and humorous bloggers that I have met in the blogoshpere. His wit is endless, and his comedic creativity seems to have no boundaries. After 40 years of writing comedy for WTIT, and DJ'ing, and hosting the blog and...and...

That's my list, and I hope you enjoy visiting these blogs as much as I do.

And, Grand baby is on it's fourth day holding out. I hope he/she's not holding out till he/she finds out what school he/she is going to be enrolled in.
Hey, Grandbaby you can come out now. Winter's over. Spring started a week ago. Yoo Hoo! Grandpa wants to play.
(Note: I know I goofed when I made this Peace Globe. Baby is due this March, but I made the Globe in 06 so it got dated funny)

Don't forget June 6, 2007 Mimi Lenox's Dona Nobis Pacem in the Blogoshpere. Get your Peace Globe

I have the first round of Read It 'n' Sketch It up at my art blog, and I will be back after work tonight to complete round Three of See It 'n' Write It (If Baby doesn't come that is)

How fun!!!! I can't wait to hear about your grand baby, Frank. Keep us posted. And by the way, it's always a pleasure doing nice things for you.

Frank....Great choices for Thinking Awards (although I'm a little prejudiced with the last choice. Wonder why?).

Everytime I see that ultrasound Peace Globe I get chills.
Sitting on pins and needles here.

Wow, I don't know what to say...? Actually I do know what to say...

I want to say thank you for the props on me lil' ole bloggy blog and am glad you have found something of interest there. I am not the most interesting person but I tell it like it is and give it to ya' straight and it has been the best possible therapy for me over the last 2 or 3 years...

I am not the originator of the word association though. as much as I would love to take credit for it, I can't...It comes from Unconscious Mutterings every week.

I really appreciate the visits and hope to see you again...

Come visit my mania...

Disappointment grabs hold of your tender heart

Don't allow it to hang on too long.

You weren't born to be sad or born to be blue

You were born to ever shine on.

Loneliness drops you in a deep, empty hole

Don't forget there's a place you belong.

You weren't born in darkness or born to be lost

You were born to ever shine on.

Mistakes and false steps, shatter your confidence

Don't believe that you'll always be wrong.

You weren't born defeated or born to stay down

You were born to ever shine on.

You're a symphony of light, a grand design

Don't transgress to a life without song.

You were born to a Promise, born to love

You were born to ever shine on.
