My ears are for awards coming out of…

Not one, not two, but three awards. Thank you, thank you and thank you. It is very humbling to think that people like my blog enough to nominate me for awards. It must mean I am doing something right.

  5. Congratulations dear Mondrak, you all deserve them. And Thank you for introducing me with new bloggers and how nice of you, by thinking my blog too. Thank you, have a nice week, love, nia

  6. Congratulations! And a HUGE thank you for sharing with me 😀 ! Always love (yes I’m repeating myself haha) reading thing about people and getting to know them better!! I agree about seeing the world through your son’s eyes…I do would like to do that with my son (he’s borderline aspergers — ok maybe more than borderline :/ )…such a sweet sensitive soul!

    Thank you again!!! Huge Hugs!!!! ~

      • Agreed!! My son has such a HUGE heart…I know he struggles with his sensitive emotions…another reason to be livid with the ‘evils’ for messing with his mind and heart. I would love to see what he sees…just to understand him better 🙂

        • Sounds like your son has the same traits as mine. As you say, that’s what makes the evils even worse. He will not see the bad in people at first being so naive

          • THE biggest thing going for him I belive (when it comes to the “evils” is that he loves me to no end. So when he saw how hurt I was…well that sort of cinched that for him. He’s struggling to understand…but he is beginning to…I’m so grateful they will be leaving soon! Have more to say on that, but will share via another venue 🙂 Love truly does conquer ALL when it comes to children!!!

            • Yes it does. With the love of children they can get themselves through the day, the same as they can get you through the day.

              He is so lucky to have such a caring mother as yourself.

            • Thank you…they are my strength, have been my reason to FIGHT…Jack turned 10 two days after what we call “bad friday”. The day we lost his father…I am so sorry for him — he will always link the two in his mind…but it did get me up and going when it was the last thing I wanted to do.

              You sir….are an awesome dad!! I have to reciprocate here because you love your children and accept them for who they are and encourage them to be all they can…by that very definition…you are awesome!!! 😀

            • Poor kid. I know it is something that will hurt him until the end of time, but hopefully he will be able to deal with it and accept it later in life.

              It’s amazing what kids can help us do.

  7. Congratulations!!! Well deserved!! and I think you, too, for the nomination. That award is currently sitting on my “award” page, and I am on my way to put a permanent link on my blog to you, right above that award. Thank you! 🙂

  8. You deserve all of them and more!! And I love the things you posted about yourself!! So I guess you won’t want any of the fish I have in my freezer from “The Fisherman”? 🙂

    And thank you so much for the nomination!!

  9. Congratulations Mondrak, and thank you for your nomination. I really enjoyed your 21 things. Always good to learn more things about a new friend, I think :), thank you for sharing these, with much affection, Penny

    • Thank you 🙂

      I have no photos of me anywhere on any of the social mediums that I use – Facebook, WordPress, Blog-spot, Google+. Even when I was on MySpace and Bebo I never had any photos. That’s not to say there aren’t photos of me on there. I can’t tell people to take down photos of me, I just untag myself from them 😉

      • oups … did not see previously the nomination of our new international and collective blog “Graffs en Capitales” … you named it Decal Capitals (btw, not bad at all!).
        Thank you so much in the name of all members of the project!
        Keep in touch … great new pics will be post in the next days.

          • No problem!
            Don’t know how to do with the rules … think it is first time a collective blog received an award?
            Btw, should you accept to join our international blogs (maybe you have shoot or will do some street art and graffiti in your country?) … hope you will accept!
            See you,
            Eric (

            • Hello again Alastair,
              Is it possible for you to indicate Graffs en Capitales in place of Decal Capitals?
              I’m making the post with our nominations (with the link to your post) … As “Graffs en Capitales ” is a collective blog (actually 11 members/authors/contributors) … we are going to break the regular rules … so more nominations than 7.
              Kind regrads,
