Once again many thanx to Mr Mn who is a true gentleman and Esme a caring, sharing friend….. This is my one and only attempt at the awards as I just don’t do them but rules in my world are meant to be broken…I have always been an opinionated rebel so on this auspicious occasion I have accepted and am truly grateful.

I am not going to nominate anyone as most of you are all deserving of an award so take your pick of the above mention four awards and do your thing…Although I didn’t mention the 4 so you have to check someone else’s post….

As to the questions .…make them up but they all have to start with consecutive letters of the alphabet…..I have been SO good to you…LOL….You can start at A or start at L  or start a U ( The end and then the BEGINNING)…… So I have thrown down the gauntlet who I wonder is going to pick it up??????

In the immortal words of  one of the Disney characters…”In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun.” — Mary Poppins (Mary Poppins)

I look forward in anticipation ….That’s all for now folks!
