The Hollywood Foreign Press Association had nothing to do with the following award
It came from Pat - An Arkansas Stamper about whom I know very little, only that her name is Pat and she lives in Arkansas and is a stamper and likes my style. Oh, and also, thanks to a comment she left on this blog, that she was born in Yorktown Texas about 35 miles from her mama's home town of Victoria, so she is really from Texas and not from Arkansas at all, Pat I mean, not her mama, who as far as I know never once claimed to be either a stamper or from Arkansas.

From Carolina in Nederland, March 2008
Rhymeswithplague, who doesn't communicate well at times, somehow neglected to tell me about this award for several days. Carolina, thank you very much. I appreciate it more than you know. If I may say so, you are a "Best Blog Darts thinker" yourself.
I have lived on earth for 79 years and have been married for 57 of those years to Ellie, my wife. We have two sons, one daughter, the appropriate assortment of in-laws, and six absolutely magnificent grandchildren. I enjoy reading, playing the piano, driving in the country, sitting by the ocean, watching birds fly, gazing into a roaring fire, holding my wife's hand, and spending time with my grandchildren. I don't fancy doing yard work, walking a dog who definitely is not in the mood, or cleaning up after one who is (RIP Jethro, 2004-2013).
