Oh, wowie! I got two awards today. First the one that I am most excited about. Mark, LC, Ayla and Iza designed this award just for me. The photo is of Edward Lear, master limerick writer. He wrote hundreds of them. The most famous one is this:
There was a young lady from Niger
Who smilingly rode on a tiger.
They returned from the ride
With the lady inside
And the smile on the face of the tiger.
He wrote lots of other poems, too, but most of them have become rather obscure. His best known one is "The Owl and the Pussycat" which I think will be well-loved forever. I am so very happy that I will celebrate with a limerick of my own:
Thank you so much for my limerick prize.
I truly appreciate you guys.*
They are fun to do**
And to know that you
Really like them, too, is the bestest prize.
*Well, one guy and three gals, but I was going for the rhyme.
**The tribute ones aren't really fun, but they are done with love and I always feel gratified when they come out right.
I also got this one from Mark, LC, Ayla and Iza. They are really spoiling me. I don't understand much Portugese, really just enough to recognize the language when I see it, but I do know a few words and I think it says, "This blog is a dream." Thank you so much. I didn't see any rules, but I feel that I should pass it on. I would like to give this award to:
Shadow, Molly, Trooder and Jake
Diego-san, Theo and Thompson
Cheysuli and Gemini
