Tag! I'm it And A Blog-A-Rama Of Awards!

I've received a couple of wonderful awards from fellow bloggers this last week  and one game of tag that is REALLY fun, so I hope you all read on and pass this great game of tag and two wonderful awards to those whom you think deserve it!

The first is a game of Picture Tag where I was 'tagged' by  



The rules go like this:

1.  Open your first photo file.
2.  Scroll to the 10th photo.
3.  Post the photo and tell the story behind it
4.  Tag five more people.

So, off I went to find that mysterious 10th photo and this is what popped up...

In this picture is myself and the love of my life, Nibbles, whom I affectionately called "Squishy." Her mother, my Mitsuo Moto was a beautiful Chestnut Oriental Short Hair that was my little shadow for many years. Nibbles was a rare cat...she absolutely loved me to bits but goddess forgive anyone else who dared come near me. My husband, at the time, once yelled at her for something, I cannot recall at the moment, but she got her revenge later that evening when she peed all over his feet as he slept. When he suddenly woke up to find himself  cold and drenched he vowed never again to raise his voice to her, lest she retaliate! Sadly she passed away three years ago from cancer and to this day I miss her terribly...attitude and all!

Great awards, for a great blogger!

Nibbles was gorgeous - you can tell that you two had a bond.

I've been known to nearly drive off the road to avoid the silly quail that stop right in front of your car! I cried for hours the one time I couldn't avoid one!
