This morning I posted about being given a blog award & I had mentioned that I had been given a few others but failed to follow through or even acknowledge that I had received them…sorry again…

Well, imagine my surprise when I, quite by accident, stumbled across an award given to me just 3 days ago!  It seems Renee from Rendezvous With Renee likes reading my stuff, even though she admits she is not much for the military.  Renee a double thank you, one for recognizing me & secondly for doing what seems to be so rare these days – being ok & accepting of someone with a different philosophical point of view.  I enjoy reading your blog as well.

The award Renee gave me is also known as the One Lovely Blog Award, but it has a different logo and slightly different rules to follow in accepting it.

The rules are to post 7 things about myself & to nominate 7 other bloggers:

  1. I am really not that comfortable doing the blog award self promotion thing, but it seems to be the way of the blog world…
  2. As a kid I wanted to be a cop when I grew up.
  3. Once I started driving I seemed to meet too many cops, but not in a good way.  But I still thought it would be a good career choice for me.
  4. I joined the Army shortly before my 20th birthday in an effort to ‘start fresh’ because of #3.
  5. It worked.
  6. After my 4 year enlistment was up I decided I would continue my career as an officer & needed to go to school to get a degree.  I picked Pharmacy because I thought it would give me a job after I was done being a Soldier. I had no real idea what a Pharmacist even did.  I had no intention of working as a Pharmacist until I retired from the Army (like that would’ve worked!)
  7. The Army made me switch from an Air Defense Artillery Officer to a Medical Service Corps Officer so I could be an Army Pharmacist.
  8. I thought that was a bad idea and spent a lot of time trying to convince them of that – I was not successful

oops, I guess you got a bonus fact

Now for 7 new blogs – they are not rank ordered, so the first one listed is not ‘better’ than the seventh one.  For those that I select, I want to reiterate that I completely understand if you do not wish to continue to keep the award chain going.  Just know that I do enjoy your blogs!

  1. Tracie Louise Photography
  2. The Laughing Housewife
  3. The Camel Life
  4. The Square Flea
  5. Free Penny Press
  6. In-debt, Fat, Short with Bad Teeth
  7. Urban Daddy

I encourage you all to check them out.

  1. Congratulations on all your awards. Wanted to thank you for being a new follower of mine after reading about my dad, but I don’t want you to be disappointed. My essays vary so they’re not always about such serious themes. I admire very much that you fought for our country.

    Dan my sweet, I may be a mouthy, opinionated, liberal, but I’m also human. I know that what you are doing is important. That what you are doing is being a good person. I like that. Keep up the good stories. The pictures. Give me the human side of military. The heartfelt side. I want to read more. Know more. And keep reading me. In all my opinionated, mouthy glory. Thanks Dan. I pray for your safe return.
