The Versatile Blogger Award!

On November 29th I received a lovely surprise from two fellow classic movie fans and bloggers, the two delightful sisters at the Pure Entertainment Preservation Society.  Tiffany and Rebekah Brannon had nominated me and 14 other bloggers whom they enjoy reading, for The Versatile Blogger Award!  I swiftly sent the ladies a thank you, and agreed to be a guest blogger for them in April, writing a post for their site.  I did tell them that since I was in the midst of grading myriads of 7 year olds’ school assignments, making reports for administration, and trying to keep a house picked up and readied for the holiday, that I wouldn’t be able to properly respond to my “award” until Christmas break.  It is now December 26th, so here is my response to this nice award.   


When one receives the Versatile Blogger Award, one has a few things to do upon receiving the honor:

  1. Thank the blogger(s) that nominated you.
  2.  Post a link to the nominating blog on your site.
  3. List 7 things about yourself.
  4. Nominate your 15 Versatile Blogger Award winners.
