Am I Quirky and Offbeat over Here? I hope so!

Here's an award I got from amazing blogger Patrick Tillett.

I love this award and how Patrick explains it: "The "White Russian" Award is for my favorite blogs. I'm sure it's no coincidence that they all have something unusual about them, are a bit quirky, or totally offbeat, and I like them as folks. Some of them are mega-popular and some are undiscovered."

I love it that he thinks my blog here is unusual, a bit quirky or totally offbeat. I could say the same about his. If you haven't been there, please go because it is a treat. Pat should be writing a memoir. Whether he ever does or not, at least he's blogging and we can all enjoy his posts and his photography.

Thanks, Pat, for this award. And since there are no rules to pass it on, I won't :)


  1. Oh wow!! Brilliant award!! Congratulations!

    I'd say this blog is not only quirky and unusual and offbeat, it's fab too!


    Take care

  2. Well I'm here because of Mr. Tillett. I can see he knows what he is talking about.

  3. Whoo Whoo!!!
    thanks for the nice words Karen...

  4. Welcome Jerry! And what a nice comment. Thanks for joining us over here.

    Pat, I mean that about the memoir :)

  5. Quirky and offbeat, thats a compliment in my book.
    I will go over and take a peak at Pat's blog.

  6. Karen,
    Thanks! Coming from you, I take the suggestion about a memoir as a large compliment. I'd love to do it, but I would need a lot of help. I just can't seem to come up with enough time. For now, I just post my stories (that may oneday relate to chapters) on my blog. Someday...

  7. Love what I read and Pat Tillett has never led me wrong yet!! He is right on with this recommendation. Do you mind if I follow?


  8. Welcome John, I'd be honored to have you follow!

  9. Quirky and offbeat -- two of my favorite things. Congrats! :)

  10. Congrats, quirky and off beat, speak volumes! I love that you are so unique and interesting!!!


I don't post very often, but if you leave a comment I'll know someone is out there reading. And then I will post more! Bwa ha ha!
