The Versatile Blogger

   We are so honored and thankful to have received the Versatile Blogger Award from our friends at Noir Kitty Mews. The dashingly handsome Valentine and his mom have a wonderful blog. They recently won the Best Pet Humor Blog at the 2018 BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards! Valentine also shares his home with a beautiful Basset Hound named Bessie. If that isn’t coincident enough, his aunt is a white Westie named Lily Madison! It is obvious that we were meant to be great friends. Thank y’all for our award. πŸ’˜

4. Lastly, tell your nominator and readers 7 interesting things about yourself. ✅
• I’m obsessed with having things in alphabetical order like spices, files, and my Versatile Blogger winners!
• I never leave my house without making my bed. It gives me a sense of accomplishment before I face the world. I also have a fear of getting into an accident and having people come to my house and my bed is unmade. (Shudder at the thought)
• It is not unusual for me to crack myself up when I’m writing. The things the dogs say in my brain are hilarious.
• Way back in the late 70’s I was a cheerleader in high school and as an adult was a cheer coach for 15 years. (There will be a book someday on the things I survived behind the scenes and it should be a bestseller!)
• I met my husband when I was four-years-old.
• After over 40 years of smoking, I quit cold-turkey on August 17, 2014. (Blog story: Does Your Dog Think You Stink?)
• No matter how hard I try my fingernails will not grow long. If you have any remedies, I'd love to hear them.
😊There you have it!😊
 Congratulations to my Versatile Bloggers. I hope you accept and proudly display your badge. I look forward to finding out 7 interesting things about you.

  1. concats to your award and thanks for nimination moi! ... and concats for saying good bye to Nico&Tina... I wish I could do that too... well at least we only smoke outside, that's a little progress too... but once we will be the turkeys and the smoke on the water will disappear...

  2. Momma has good luck wif fingernails - she just wishes she could get her hair to grow!

  3. My mom makes the bed every morning before we leave for our walk. She can't stand the thought of it being a mess. They say making a bed daily sets the tone for an organized day and makes a person feel better. As for nails, Mom's grow like weeds. Maybe it is the diet coke and chocolate in her diet? Otherwise no clue. Congrats on the award and thank you for passing it on!

  4. Congratulations on being able to give up cigarettes. Can't help you with the fingernails though, I keep mine short. :)

  5. Congrats on the award and thanks for nominating us! Bravo for quitting smoking too!
    Hazel & Mabel

  6. Ohhhh Pierre and Bentley thank you thank you for including us in your recipient list.

  7. Concatulations on your award ! Purrs

  8. Congrats on the nice award! Valentine is one cool dude and his Mom is a very cool dudette! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  9. Congrats on your well deserved award. That is cool that you met your hubby when you were just a tot.

  10. Congrats on the award! We enjoyed reading those 7 things about you. You've known your husband since you were 4? Amazing!

  11. Congratulations on the award and thank you so much for nominating us!!! We are very honored !!!

  12. Congratulations on your award. Love your facts - especially meeting your husband when you were 4! Wow!

    Love and licks,

  13. CONGRATS!!!! And a big slobbery THANK YOU! For the nomination! I am very honored, and will be thanking you wonderful furiends in my own bloggie post! Nows, Ma used to smoke too, and she quit with the gum stuffs. She can't understand how anybody can afford it now! yikes! If you don't quit for your health, quit for your wallet! Anyhu, Ma's nails have always been crap. Bendy! And she made the mistake about a year ago of putting some gel nail stuffs on them (that was SUPPOSED to make them stronger, and it just made them split and peel and boy, was Ma mad!!!) So, she is finally getting them to (sort of) grow past the tip of her fingers! She started taking Biotin a year ago, and it MIGHT have helped. Don't believe the hype of people telling you it helped them in a few weeks, cause your nails have to grow out furst, and it take furevers! It's cheap, and may be worth a try.
