    Yay! An April challenge. (And such a relief 'cause I will need to up my blogging technical skills to do this again!) And thank you for thinking of me. Good luck finding your 15. This is like a spider-web, isn't it!

    Aw, thanks so much, I'm honored. I feel weird accepting this --I'm just having so much fun with the Jingle Monday rallies. It's all about fun and sharing. I think I'll pass on the award stuff -- Enough already! --but thanks for thinking of me.

    Thank you for the nomination, but I really can't cope with all these award thingies: they seem like the dreaded chain letter to me. Sorry to be so negative.
    1. Terri said on March 11, 2011
      No worries! Just know you were thought of.
  9. goldenhairbear10 said on March 11, 2011
    Oh sorry. I messed up on the previous link. Here is the edited one: And one question: Did you want us to notify the people we nominated?
    1. Terri said on March 11, 2011
      If you can let them know, that's the best way to do it!
  10. goldenhairbear10 said on March 11, 2011
    Wonderful Dubble Bubble poem. I am nominating you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I hope you accept. Cheers!
  11. Paulo Guimaraes said on March 11, 2011
    Thanks for nominating me! Just to make sure, I have to follow the same rule pattern as stated above, right? Nominate 15 and tell some things about me? If so, will take care of it later, have busy day. Thanks so much!
    1. Terri said on March 11, 2011
      Exactly so. Although, I think the nomination pool is getting smaller, so I'd take the pressure off. I hope your day goes well. I have an unusually calm moment today.
      1. Paulo Guimaraes said on March 12, 2011
        Good for you, calmness is a precious thing, I try and find it when i can. Especially with a very energetic little child running around,lol.
        1. Terri said on March 12, 2011
          I have teenagers, so no more chasing little ones for me! (Whew!)
  12. Gaurang Rao said on March 12, 2011

      Zack is the cutest lizard! I swear he can smile.
  16. trisha said on March 12, 2011
    thanks for the honour jane. I am grateful and very very proud that you thought about me. does that lizard roams around freely or you have to keep it confined?
    1. Terri said on March 12, 2011
      He is an Egyptian lizard, so he has to be confined in a terrarium with mondo heat lamps.
  17. Pat Cegan said on March 12, 2011
    Well, I am very touched and pleased to be nominated but as I am unable to comply with the terms of the award, I must pass. Thanks for thinking of me. hugs, pat
    1. Terri said on March 12, 2011
      No worries! I know it is challenging and a bit like a poetry chain letter!
