Huh?  Me?  I got nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award.  What the Heck?

OK,  so i’m in …great idea and thank you Tammy at Novel Opinion  –


Here is what VBA is all about:  Versatile Blogger Award (VBA)
What is it?   (and btw, i copied some of below from the lovely Tammy, cuz she’s quite witty)

As far as I can tell — details are rather sketchy and only the creator knows for sure — this lofty-sounding award is basically a mutual admiration society where bloggers recognize their peers for writing quality blogs that touched them in some way. The VBAs honor the blogger rather than specific posts. It’s a chance for bloggers to pat themselves on the back like the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences does with the Oscars. Until someone starts giving out Blogscars, the VBAs will have to suffice.

What are the criteria?

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award. I nominated 15 outstanding bloggers below. Congratulations!

Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.

Thank you, Tammy!  I’m so happy that you thought of me!  And I also want to thank the Academy, and my parents, and all the little (and big) people that I stepped on along the way to get this award

Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.  (I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)

1)     I LOVE honest people who are comically self-deprecating.

2)     I hate people that talk about shit that they truly know nothing about.

3)     I’m a  #Twitter  addict
4)     Also addicted to Mountain Dew (and no diet shit)
5)     I love Yellowstone.
6)     My three kids are better than every other kid on the planet now, in the future, and from the past.
7)     My wife still thinks I’m funny after 20 years.  That is, whenever she’s listening to me.

    Congratulations on your award, Andy.

    Congratulations on your award! Ooh! And thank you for passing it along my way. Your seven things made me laugh. I was such the Mountain Dew addict in college. That stuff is the bomb. You might get some fights over #6 though. I’m just warning you. 😉
