Day 131. Another Award

Honestly, I don’t know what to say.  I have been getting such a good response to my blog.  I’ve had my fair share of visits, follows, ‘likes’ and comments.  Not so longBlog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg ago the film and travel-loving author of MANNINGTREE ARCHIVE nominated me for the One Lovely Blogger Award .

Still Day 82. An Addendum

LOVELY BLOGGER AWARD!

How lucky am I.  I have just been nominated for the One Lovely Blog award by MANNINGTREE ARCHIVE.  If you haven’t already visited this blog, you should.  It is all about one man’s passion for the arts.  For film, theatre, music and literature.  But the twist is, the artists that he’s so passionate about are the ‘greats’ from another era.  So visiting the MANNINGTREE ARCHIVE is like a visit to a wonderful museum.

The rules for the award are:

Thank and link back to the person that nominated you.  SO THANKS, AGAIN, TO ………..       MANNINGTREE  ARCHIVE.

Post the award picture in your post.
