This is a much warmer and friendlier token to be passed around the blogosphere than that hard, cold snowball I usually get hit with this time of year! (Although that's fun to get hit with and passed along, too.) I don't know where this smackeroo originated, but it was passed onto me by Raidergirl3.
This is a quote from the original smoocheree:
"So, the point (and I do have one) to this post is motivated by my desire to hand some of that love and kindness back around to those who have been so very, very, very good to me in this bloggy world. My hope is that those who receive this award will pass it on to those who have been very, very, very good to them as well. It's a big kiss, of the chaste platonic kind, from me to you with the underlying 'thanks' message implied. I really do appreciate your support and your friendship and yes, your comments. ... Mwah!"
I was fortunate enough to meet Raidergirl3 when visiting Charlottetown, PEI this last summer. We had such a delightful visit. We had reading, teaching and science in common - she teaches high school chemistry and I taught high school biology before retiring. Plus, we both love a good bowl of fish chowder and Anne of Green Gables. Raidergirl3 presented me with 2 novels from the series. She's been a wonderful friend. Thank-you, Raidergirl3.
Now I'm suppose to pass this on to 5 other people. You all know how very hard that is because there are many, many blogger friends I would like to say 'Thank-you!' to for the sometimes sincere, sometimes witty and all the times cheerful comments. But the rule said to pick 5, so here are the ones I am sending a big xxx MWAH! xxx to:
1. Melissa the Booknut
3. Heather - The Library Ladder
4. Suziqoregon - Blogging My Books
5. Dewey - The Hidden Side of the Leaf
All 5 people I've listed have uplifted me, made me smile, provided terrific book suggestions and made me feel welcome on their blogs.
