I've always liked that Dickiebo. He's awarded me an award. Thank you!
I think I should pass on the compliment. A new blog I've checked out looks very promising. I don't think I'll issue an award on the basis of one (so far) post, but suggest you pop over there and offer encouragement to the newbie.
Ruthseems to have received every award available already but lo and behold not this one so I'll choose her. Apart from the fact she's a great writer (she literally IS a writer, unlike us amateurs) she's such a faithful and gracious commenter, I love her. And Jay can have one too - I like her sense of humour and she posts beautiful pictures of God's creation (usually the bit of creation she focusses on is - well see for yourself!)
That'll have to do for now. Not because I don't admire any other blogs - I'd hardly have added so many to my blogroll if that were true - but because some children want their tea. Feed the hungry 'n' all that.
