My blogging friend Queenie has very kindly seen fit to give me a rockin' girl blogger award. It was bright pink but another of my friends, Dan, helped me out by changing the colour to blue so that it would match my blog's colour scheme. I would have nominatedDan but as heisn't a girl I restrained myself. Someone who is a bit quicker than me though nominated his cat Lulu so I am now in very exalted company indeed. Now it is my turn to nominate five lucky ladies for this distinction:-
My first choice is Lime and not because I have a green button. On the contrary the green button was made because there is lime.
Second in my illustrious line-up comes my sister Pauline. Not because she is my sister but because her blog really rocks.
My third choice is the incomparable Logo who is as witty a biking blogger as you could wish to meet.
Fourth in my line- up is Blancodeviosa becauseI love her pics and poetry as well as her "don't give me any shit"attitude.
Last but by no means least, my fifth choice for a rockin' girlblogger award is Tina.
Now she will have to post.

If I could I would nominate at least another five
but I guess it would be bending the rules too far
so I will have to make do with naming them:
miss understood, sugar smacks, groovy lady,
Ann, Val and Ali.
I will get you next time or develop the know how
to create an award of my own in the autumn.

Wow! Look at the great colors you have the badge in! Wonderful! The lady who started this award thing is linked to in my blog post about it if you are interested. She is going to make a big list of all the gals who got awarded so go make a comment on her blog if you want to be counted.

I thank you for visiting my blog and for the nice comment. I am going to spend some time here at your blog today!


Travis said...

The different colors look great. I got a blue one too - but mine is a Rockin Boy Blogger badge.

Ali said...

What a cool set of colours, and I'm honoured to be mentioned, thank you.

Of course, now I have to find the time to go and visit the five you have given the award to because if they are half as good as yours I will love theirs too.

congrats on your award Cathy.

val said...

Hale McKay said...

Way to go, Cathy. Congratulations.

Michael said...

Did I mention congrats? No?? Oh well, you deserve it I guess having such an outstanding blog and talent far beyond what I am capable of.

Hmmmm, I wonder how much I could sell that award for...more than a bicycle I'm guessing. Lock the door when you leave for Fokia again :oP

Tina said...

Congrats Cathy!!! Thank you, I am honoured... I promise to post something soon...Tina xoxo

Jocelyn said...

You are so cool (as is, em, Dan) to have changed the colors to reflect the women. Love it.

You deserve this award, fer sher!

Miss Understood said...

Aww..thanks for that! What a sweet thing to say!
Love the new colours, too. Not all rockin' bloggers have to like pink!

Pauline said...

Cathy, check out the new honorary girl blogger award over at mine

Dan said...

Congratulations Cathy! You deserve it! :)

Incidentally, Lulu is quite pleased to see her name in the subject of this blog. It's all she's been purring about. She's so vain!

Lulu (Dan's cat) said...

Daddy doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. I'm a cool, sophisticated cat. Just look at me! I'm totally unphased by seeing my name up in lights. What's this nonsense about purring! Balderdash!

I never do such ... purrrrrrr ... silly stuff. That crap is for ... purrrrrr ... stupid little ... purrrrrrr ... kittens.

Well anyway ... purrrrrr ... thanks for ... purrrrrr ... mentioning me. I guess you kind of rock.

Blancodeviosa said...

macguffin and my kids for my "i don't wanna take any shit attitude". ahaha jk
and my mom and dad for their psychotic dna in order for me to make poetry majic!

in all seriousness, thank you very much. i appreciate it soo much!

Anndi said...

Great badges! Well deserved dear!

I love the pink one.. :)

I keep forgetting to put mine up. and it seems my circle of blogger friends have all received this award so much so even some of the guys got one - sheesh!

cathy said...

Thankyou everybody sorry I don't have time to answer you all individually as I'm about to dash off again.
polliwog I will get round to that but don't know when.
Anndi, congrats to you too.
Lulu, I can hear you purring, LOL.
