Thank You Transmission #1

‘Tis the time of year to give thanks, so I have decided to do so in a story telling format (after having been inspired by watching the Harry Potter marathon on the Fox Family Channel and the Star Wars Marathon on the Spike Channel – two cable channels in the USofA).  Without further adieu – make yourself comfy, cue the tunes and away we go…..

Once upon a long time ago, in a universe far, far away, there lived a clan of four soldiers.  (This is a true story) They were a kind, loving bunch spreading goodwill throughout the universe – protecting those who could not protect themselves.   The leader of the clan, Syd Pee 3-O, was the strongest of them all with a Paw that could maim with a single swipe.  Next in command was the brains of the operation,  Jor-2-d-2.  He was the technical mastermind, able to bring any operating system to its knees.  Then there was the director of security, Master PeYoda.  He could cook up any top-secret plan and execute it with precision.  The last member, MomBacca, took it upon herself to watch over the clan – making certain the ship was operational, supply clean underwear, food in the fridge and – this is the most important – tuck the soldiers in at night.  MomBacca did have one more responsibility – to blog, aka to communicate.  Blogging made use of the W3 (top-secret wavey things in space), and for the millions of other goodwill soldiers, this was their only means of communication.

Eons of years were spent traversing the universe.  Eons of  clans came and went and many blogs were transmitted, whereupon they still do exist – floating amongst the W3’s in space.  Many of these transmissions have been passed down from generation to generation and some have been placed into a collective source called the WP…………….flash to present day…….

I am the great, great, great…etc… grandchild of MomBacca.  I still oversee the transport, food and laundry of my little clan and I have continued the tradition of blogging.  I blog about many things but one of my absolute favorite things to blog about is gratitude for my fellow ‘clans people’ and here is one such transmission…….

The Versatile Blogger Award

Gifted by Ilka at

  •  Include a link to their blog.

My five (should be fifteen) nominees are:


As you can see, I have bent the rules quite a bit.   I have adjusted the number of nominees and the amount of information given about me.  First of all, there is not too much to tell about myself and secondly, I want to spare you the many more words I have to type – of which I have many more to type and they will be revealed shortly with a few more upcoming ‘transmissions’ of gratitude.

I would like to end on this note:  I sincerely want to thank each and every fellow blogger for each moment you have gifted of yourself on your blog site.  These include more than the follows,  likes, comments and awards you have given me – they are the photos, words, thoughts and feelings expressed in each post – the little bits of yourselves you share across the W3’s on the WP!

Until the next transmission –

Happy Reading, Happy Writing


Happy Day!

With love,

The Merci Series Part II

Hello Bloggerbuds –

Here we are again for another episode of the Merci Series.  Tonight I am presenting Act II.

The Synopsis:

1. As usual a big thank you and a link back to the person who nominated you.

2. Mention 5 things you would like to do with your life, no matter how mad or tame.

3. Nominate six bloggers and say why they have left their mark on you. Hence the name “The Thank You Award”

4. Let them know.


The characters are as follows:

The nominator:  Shaun at Looking for reasoning in a complicated world

The nominee:  Words4jp – aka Kimberly

The award:

The nominees:

  1. Free Little Words –
  2. Wrestling Life –
  3. 108+ –
  4. Black and Write –
  5. Knocked Over By A Feather –

The Merci:

First and foremost, I would like to thank Shaun for bestowing this Thank You onto me.  I am touched and humbled by this honor.  He is a genuinely kind, caring and an all-round cool lad (who by the way, does not wear a kilt). This lass is proud to call him a friend.

Secondly, the six nominees are all wonderful and quite simply beautiful blogs to behold.   Each one of the six holds a special place in my heart and I can truly say that each one has given me something very special – whether it has been a laugh, a tear, a memory, food for thought or that feeling of being a part of something greater than what I am on this planet – I have received all of these gifts.  I believe I speak for many of us on WordPress when I say that we are like one big community.  We come from all around the world – a bunch of unique spirits who enjoy communicating and sharing.  I consider myself fortunate to be in the presence of such great talent, truly beautiful souls and I would like to thank each one from the bottom of my heart, as well as, thank the entire WordPress community for such a wonderful opportunity to hang out, to play, to learn and to make new friends.

& The 5 Things:

  1. I would love to build a house or two or… with the Habitat for Humanity.
  2. I would love to visit the South Pacific (I was hooked after I saw the movie South Pacific – I fell in love with John Kerr as Lt. Cable).
  3. I look forward to being in the audience when Jordan debuts his first movie!
  4. I would like to get back in the dance studio again – that is if the knees and hips cooperate.
  5. Go to Russia and see the Bolshoi and Kirov ballet perform…..someday...

Once again, I would like to offer my heartfelt gratitude to Shaun, my six friends up above and to all of the WordPress community for – everything!

This concludes the evening’s production of the Merci Series Act II.  There is one more act, which will make its way out of the wings in a day or two.  Until then – happy writing, happy reading, happy day!

Lots of love,
