One Lovely Blog

How does this happen?  How is it that I got the honor of being nominated this early in my blogging "career"? Well it was pretty easy I guess... Lisa J. at SunlightinWinterQuilts nominated me.  Not that I completely understand what all this means, but still it is really "neat" to still a word from the 80's generation that I grew up in.
So I guess I can say I humbly  and graciously accept this award. That being said I guess I need to post some things that I stole from Lisa's post. Thanks Lisa for the Nomination and maybe we will get lucky and meet at Quiltcon. My wife wants to go and I told her to look into it.

The Rules:

*Thank the person who nominated you, and give a link to his/her blog.
*List the rules.
*Display the image of the award on your post.
*List seven facts about yourself.
*Nominate (up to) 15 bloggers for this award, and notify them to let them know you have nominated them.
     So here are 7 facts about me.
1.  I am a runner....  though I haven't done anywhere near as much as I did last year (1000+ miles over the entire year). I do it to relieve stress as well as experience the runner's high....yes that is a real thing.  I do my best thinking running (and mowing and sometimes while indisposed ...TMI)

2.  I am 1 belt test away from being a black belt in Taekwondo. I have never really had the desire to complete it either....alot of responsibility that I am not willing to commit to or be responsible for comes with being a Black Belt.  I have to many other Irons in the fire, so to speak

3.  I have been in law enforcement in some capacity for over 15 years now.
This one being the one I am most proud of.  

4.  I am a bit of hermit....or should I say Jedi???? I don't do well at places like Walmart.  My wife has all but accepted this and avoids taking me when possible.  I get "road rage" in the isles when people block them.  

5.  I FEEL (and it is just my personal feeling) that society has a whole has went down the tubes and people have lost the ability to be kind, respectful, and considerate of others (and more importantly their time).  I have to say though... the quilting Bloggousphere has restored my faith to some degree.

6.  I have an addiction to cinnamon.  My wife even buys me the LorAnn Oils and i actually turn them up onto my tongue and work my way through a bottle a little at a time. Sometimes even to point of causing an upset tummy from burning due to using to much of it.

7.  I'm Batman, I just don't have the money to go with it.

I know some of this was in my first post but there is a little more info with this one.
Nominations...I am really not sure who to nominate.  I won't pretend to be a dedicated follower of blogs because my time to work on this or even read is very limited between work, duty, and only having 2 days off to accomplish anything...most of which is ate up right now with mowing.  

I guess I will nominate Cheryl Brickey and Sandra

Cheryl because of her awesome patterns that are extremely easy even for a beginner and Sandra because she let me "field test" as guys call it a pattern....that would be "pattern testing" for the quilter that isn't trying to come up with new lingo for quilt processes. LOL

Hope you enjoyed!


  1. Great post Dave: I never go places like Walmart either or places like Canada's Wonderland. My kids had to wait to go with other families or on school trips, don't like crowds. I like point 7. It's the best. Great nominations as well.

  2. Well done! Your texts are as pleasing to read as your quilts to see))

  3. I am so glad that quilt blogging is helping you feel better about society. I always feel renewed after going to Oshkosh, WI, for the EAA AirVenture air show. It is a huge event and most people who attend camp. Walking through the camp ground to the air show I witness so many acts of kindness that it fills my heart to overflowing. It always leaves me feeling better and is a good reason for my husband and I to attend when we can (it happens once a year at the end of July). And... are you secretly BatDad? :D

  4. I"m trying to be a runner...we'll see how it goes. Sadly, I agree with #5. But have made some great blog friends. It's a supportive community.
