An Award, An Acknowledgement, and a Pope for Dinner

Posted on May 31, 2011


Territerri of just gave me the Versatile Bloggers Award.  Territeri is special for a couple reasons, the least of which is that she has a repeating name (think John John Kennedy). TT writes about her life in a way that makes me want to grab my coffee cup, pull up a chair, and join in.  She’s a very real person.  And on the side, she’s also a hero.  She gave her dad a kidney.  Not many of us could say that. And I have a feeling that if I called her a hero, she wouldn’t know what I was talking about, and she’d rather talk about bowling, anyway.

SinceI got an award, I get to acknowledge another blogger.  That’s because I make the rules about this kind of thing.  So I’m acknowledging Murr Brewster of  She probably won’t ever see this acknowledgement, because I don’t think she has ever read my blog.  And I also don’t think she has ever responded to any of my comments on hers.  In fact, she has a lot of followers but she rarely responds to anyone’s comments.  

Murr is super smart in that way that some super smart people have of taking any kind of topic and making it seem really important.  For example, she has written a lot about animal poop, and she makes poop seem as important as the many political issues she tackles (which she calls political poop).  The bottom line is that it doesn’t much matter what Murr writes.  I read it, and it all ends up being something that I’m grateful to have read.  

Note to readers: I have to use those doofus links because I can’t get the links thing to work.  Ah, me.


The Big News here is that The Pope (JP2) has arrvived.  We had a celebratory dinner, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
