Multiple awards

Last week, I received two different awards from three different people. So thanks to +Helen Howell and +Tony Noland for the Super Sweet Blogging Award, and Catherine Russell for the Sunshine Award! So I’m going to combine these into a single post.

Super Sweetness

For this award, the acceptance speech is pretty standard:
  • √ Thank the person who nominated you.
  • √ Answer the five “Super Sweet” questions.
  • √ Include the picture in your blog post.
  • Nominate 13 other bloggers. Wait. Thirteen???
  • Notify your nominees.
So here’s the five questions:
  • Cookies or Cake? Cookies. They’re portable and easier to hide from 3yo grandkids who want “just one bite!”
  • Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate. 'Nuff said!
  • Favorite Sweet Treat? White chocolate macadamia nut cookies.
  • When do you crave sweet things the most? Mid-afternoon. A chocolate cupcake to go with my coffee—just the thing to keep me awake.
  • Sweet nickname? The wife calls me “Hun.” I don’t know why; I haven’t pillaged a single village.


Here’s the rules:
  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog.
  • Link to the person who nominated you.
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself.
  • Pass it on to a few cheery souls.
The questions:
  • Favorite color? Yellow.
  • Favorite animal? Sprite, my daughter’s overweight and highly cuddly cat.
  • Favorite number? 13? It seems to be lucky for me.
  • Favorite non-alcoholic drink? Unsweet tea or diet coke.
  • Favorite alcoholic drink? Rum. Straight. Beer is a close second.
  • Facebook or Twitter? Twitter. Period.
  • Passions? Writing, the beach, passion itself…
  • Prefer getting or giving presents? At this stage of life, giving. Especially if it’s something you know they like.
  • Favorite City? Hm. I think maybe Decatur, GA, because if I ever leave here that’s where I’d like to live.
  • Favorite TV Shows? Old stuff like Hogan’s Heroes, Max Headroom, X-Files. I don’t watch much TV these days.

OK, Who’s Next?

I’m going to cheat. Whoever hasn’t gotten one of these awards already, claim it!


  1. Glad you liked the award Larry - you're answers put a smile on my face ^__^

  2. Sunny and Sweet? That's got to be flattering, if not fattening.

    What's the last present you got joy out of giving, Larry?

  3. Congrats, Larry! And you are the sweetest!

  4. Larry I'm very happy for you. You're a Grandfather who's doing a damn good job. I hope when Mason gets older that he realizes how much his Grandfather loved him and took care of him. Of course, you know in the teen years it will be tough. But you are a good Grandfather.



Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.

Include your Twitter handle if you want a shout-out.
