V for Versatile

29 Oct

I was going to start this blog by writing a paragraph filled with letters that begin with the letter V. However, I can’t think of enough, so I will just put up a picture of this guy.Vendetta

This is happening because I was awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by one of my favorite blogs, Chandler Swain Reviews. If you like movies (and who doesn’t like movies?), then you need to head over and check it out. Heck, he may have a review for the above photographed Mr. V.

I really appreciate the award and want to publicly thank CSR for reading this blog and sharing it with his many readers.

This award comes with several rules that should be followed. First, I am to provide a link to the presenter of the award. Mission accomplished.

Next, I am to display the award.Versatile

Isn’t it beautiful? Now, I am to list seven things about me that could be considered interesting.

1. When I was a youngster, I got lost in Sequoia National Park.

2. I don’t like peaches, but I love fried peach pies.

3. I have traveled to each of the 50 states.

4. Late one night, I fell asleep standing up.

5. I am pretty sure that I have the entire script of Smokey and the Bandit memorized.

6. I own a miniaturized replica of Mayberry, North Carolina.

7. I love my wife, and I hope she makes it this far into the post to read that.

Here’s the important part. I am to name 15 other blogs to receive the Versatile Blogger Award.

Trask Avenue – I have been reading about the street side activities at Trask for a long time. You need to see what’s happening on the corner.

Front Range Scribbles – Colorado has a music scene, and everything you need to know about it is right here.

Satanic Panic – Another great site about music, and the name of the blog is awesome.

Thoughts From The West Five – This has to be the most versatile blog being produced in Great Britain. We have been reading each other’s stuff for a long time.

Paint Later – This is a view of the art world from the Land Down Under. Don’t paint later. Paint now.

Senior Moments – These are some good Tennessee folks, and they do a lot of traveling. Go on over and read about their adventures.

Manu Kurup – This has to be the most versatile blog being produced in India. Some great writing is coming out of this one.

Dying Note – Another blog about music, this writer must live a mysterious existence. For awhile, they will disappear. Then, they are back with a vengeance. Go check it out.

Guapola – Hey, another music blog. I hope Guapola isn’t taking payola.

Cole Mining – This mine is filled with nuggets of wisdom and great writing.

Serendipity – A blog by two very interesting people. When you read it, I think you will agree.

Hasty Words – For some really creative writing, this is the place to go.

Carl D’Agostino – The cartoons always make me laugh and always make my day.

I should have numbered these. I keep losing track of how many I have listed.

The Nashville Fork – This one is produced by a co-worker. It’s about the food scene in and around Nashville. I know a lot of you don’t live around here, but there are also some great recipes that everyone can enjoy.

Boxer Sweeney – It’s drawings. It’s great drawings. I always wonder what is going to come up next.

That’s it. I have fulfilled the requirements of receiving the Versatile Blogger Award. I enjoy reading a bunch of blogs and wish I could have listed them all. Again, I thank Chandler Swain Reviews for the honors. I also want to thank everyone who takes the time to read this blog. Mr. V thanks you, as well.

    I come back out of the crypt and I see this. What can I say but thanks Rick. It’s feels very, very rewarding to be recognized by a fellow blogger whose writing I have a lot of respect and liking for. I will check out all the other blogs that you’ve mentioned here.
