 Kay, who writes the great blog Kay's Thinking Cap gave me an award.  The title of the award is Over The Top.  The deal is:  you have to answer the questions with one word and then pass on the award to three other blogs. 

Okay, here goes.

35. Favorite place to eat? Millie's

And there you have it in one word.  I pass this award on to:

Grannymar, an Irish lass who writes a great blog by the same name.  Grannymar is wise, funny and courageous.  You never know what her subject will be, but you can bet it will be interesting or fun.

Joy of Joy of Six.  Her blog is just super.  Joy is a real sweetheart and she writes poetry and posts it sometimes.   She has a great sense of humor and I always enjoy reading whatever she posts.

Judy who writes the lovely blog Imagine.  She often posts photos of gorgeous floral arrangements.  Her blog is always good no matter what the subject. 

It's fun to leave the heavy subjects of  the Haiti tragedy and politics once in awhile.  I have lightened up today and posted this.  When the cares of the world get you down, take a break. I just did.

Great, Darlene -- And your honorees are excellent and are people who deserve this award!!! I always seem to tag Judy and Joy with this sort of thing but lately, I'm trying to pass things on to other equally deserving bloggers.

One nice thing about the awards is that I almost always find new blogs to read -- as if I don't have enough trouble keeping up as it is!!!! LOL

Grannymar said...

Thank you Darlene for the honour. I will do my best with one word answers at the weekend. Now back to the sidebar to collect the award!

Well, bless you, Darlene!! Thanks for the award and thanks for the link. I'll do that one soon.

Scooter! Oh no, you have one of those three wheel thingies that run into people in shopping centres? I'm so getting one of those when I'm your age . .I'll be a 'mall hoon' Is Millies a chain? We had breakfast at a Millies when we went to Disneyland. It was in front of the Ramada hotel. Good food, very cheap great brekkie!

My list is ready for Saturday.

Darlene said...

*Kay Dennison - Thanks for the award Kay and for sending the gadget.

*Grannymar - You are deserving of all the awards you get. I hope you were able to post the Over the Top''

*Kenju - You are so welcome.

*Baino - I don't usually run into people, but one time the forward control got stuck and I was in a line. To avoid hitting a woman in front of me I turned to the right and almost knocked down a display before I got the damned thing stopped. I grazed her ankle on the way and had to fill out forms for insurance. (antiseptic and a bandaid would have covered it)

Millie's is a local pancake house and she will make Kuchen while you wait. The food and decor is A-one. Come to Tucson and I'll take you there for brunch.
