For being my third most frequent commenter & saying such lovely things about my photos 🙂


For having such a great name!

Leanne Cole

    Thank you for thinking of me Barbara. If there are questions to go with the award, I answer them and then break the rules – I leave it open for anyone that wants to accept the award. This one has no questions, so Please, take it as accepted! 😀

    Thanks for this, Barbara. After receiving three consecutive “Worst Blog of the Year” awards, it’s nice to finally have the monkey off my back. And even though it smacks of nepotism, it is humbly accepted.

    Your pal, Uncle Al

    OMG I just saw the comment above, that can’t be true, how can there be awards like that?

    Congratulations Barbara, very well deserved, and thank you for nominating me. I don’t really do awards, but I have started putting links to everyone who nominates me on my awards page, so will put you there as well.


  4. I love your reasons for nominating blogs! Thanks for thinking of me 🙂
