Well, lookie here.  Stephen at The Chubby Chatterbox has nominated me for an award.

It's the Sunshine Award.  Considering my sometimes sarcastic, sometimes snarky, sometimes snarly blog posts, I'm not sure I deserve it.  But, what the heck.

The rules of the Sunshine Blog Award are simple…

#1 Thank the person who nominated you with a link back to their blog. (Thanks Stephen! The link is posted above.  If you've never been to his blog, trust me, you'll enjoy it.  Stephen is a talented artist/illustrator and a very talented writer who spins great tales.)

#2 Answer a few questions about yourself.

Favorite color: Red, I think.  I do like black, too, but I'm told it and white aren't really colors.

Favorite animal: Cats.  And jackalopes.

Favorite number: 4, probably because there are an abundance of them in my birthdate: 4-24-1940.  Hasn't helped me out with the Powerball, though.

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: NON-ALCOLIC???  You've got to be kidding.  Oh, o.k., I guess it would be Diet Coke.

Facebook or Twitter: Facebook, I guess.  I've never tried and never will try Twitter.  (I know, never say never)

My passion: This damned computer.  And the Arizona Diamondbacks!

Favorite flower: I think it would have to be Lilac.  I keep threatening to plant a lilac bush around here but haven't done it yet.  But we had them around my house when I was a kid and I love the smell of them.

Favorite movie: Oh, man, there are so many.  Casablanca is one I never fail to watch.  And The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming is fantastic though I haven't seen it in quite awhile.

Favorite painting: I love anything by Renoir, particularly The Luncheon of the Boating Party.  Though I've lived for years in the Southwest, I'm up to here with cowboy art or Western Art.

Now, I'm supposed to nominate some other blogs for this award.  I was going to decline this one but I'll suggest a couple.

I like that Renoir too - although I wouldn't have been able to remember that I like it :)

Bruce Taylor, a.k.a. Catalyst said...

Y'know what? I had to Google it to get the correct name.

That Renoir is one of my favorite paintings. It's in Washington DC and I remember walking into the room where it hangs and smiling uncontrollably. It's one of the happiest pictures ever painted.

Steve said...

Most deserving.

You see to me, to always be a gentle man, and never given to effend. You post nothing that is offensive, as far as I have seen and you are a credit to honour.XX

Thank you for the thought Bruce! I have been trying to catch up on the days I missed while my sister and her better half were here for a visit. I will try to do this in the next couple days.
