Please take the award and the challenge...and I hope that this is not a burden, but a sign of my appreciation for your blog and the topics that you choose to write about and share!

Val ..... mules, horses, dogs, work and play, and wow does she express herself well!
Jill's life
Jill ..... giant pumpkins, dogs, mini-critters with long ears, garden sculptures, and so very interesting and fun to follow.
Laura ..... I have only followed Laura's blog for a very short time now, but could immediately recognize her knowledge and love for her horses and (one) mule?  She has a wonderful gift for telling a simple tale ... very readable and easy to follow.
Nature Nutz
Lisa .... her love of nature, all aspects of gardening, and  fondness for her own as well as shelter animals makes her blog not only a learning experience but fun to follow as well.
Baba Yaga's Mirror ..... educator (now back at work for the school year) and animal lover .... this site is packed with information.   Thanks for all your genuine love and care.
Pick a Peck of Pixels
Abe .... a photographer extraordinaire with a great sense of humor and gift for putting words on paper!

Never having accepted any award before, I am not totally sure how this works or if the way I did it will work.  Ah well, like I said I'm passing it on (I think I'm passing it on)  to those of you whose posts that I continue to enjoy each time I log onto your blogs!

Hope you are all having a very nice weekend....

P.S.    Now I have done my part, but I have no idea what to do next except push PUBLISH POST  


  1. Awwwwwww, I got an award, thank you so much! I gotta admit I really have fun with these things.

  2. Oh MJ, You did such a great job! You did everything right. Great post, great answers and thank you for accepting this award.
    I promise, I will not "do this" to you anytime again soon... ;-)

    Have a great Sunday Mancos Family! :))

  3. PS: You might wanna drop a short note on your 6 recipients blogs to let them know that you have something waiting for them on your blog.... ;-) Just in case they miss it...
    Unless they are regular readers of your's... ;-)

  4. I appreciate your kind words and thoughts but I have 8 or 9 blogs all going and I stopped accepting or participating in awards and memes and things that go bump in the night. Hope you are not offended.

  5. Abe, Not at all! I totally understand. Just wanted you to know how much I enjoy your posts, your humor and your compassion for animals!

  6. Holy Cow!!!
    You may have to wait a bit for me to get these answered though...

  7. Thanks MJ. It's nice to know that we share the same love of animals and nature. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and will try the challenge this week sometime.

    Cheers, to all bloggers with compassion :)

  8. Thanks! I will give it a whirl.


  9. Oh thanks very much, will have to have a wee think about this and try and do some witty clever answers (may take me a few days!!) Thanks for the lovely comments about the old boys, off out now to trim some feet so will try and do a post on the others soon!

  10. Just to reply...

    The Tufted Titmouse is about the size of a sparrow. They are not really cousins, I just call all birds cousins.
