Man Gives The Award But God Gives The Reward

I have been very lax in recent weeks regarding award posts which doesn’t mean for one second that I don’t appreciate the nominations, however, my real life has been a little demanding of late.

So I would like to thank the following lovely bloggers for nominating me for the Leibster Award. So big thank yous to theinnerwildkat and Odie & Odie Mamma @ eyesOfOdysseus. Now there are a shedload of rules but I’m just going to answer Kat’s well thought out questions on this occasion and suggest that as we’ve all had a very busy start to the New Year, I am going to invite those that are interested to join in with no pressure, leaving the link in the comments below so that we can all check out your answers.

  1. I never get tired of Under the Tuscan sun…that movie has fueled many a daydream of abandoning current reality and being really brave, and of lovely homes in IT*TA*LY, where creepy trees just know things!


  2. Congrats on your award, Dallas, so well deserved. I used to wish I had daintier feet, but I’ve realised that being tall, I would overbalance if my feet were small. 🙂 Under the Tuscan Sun is a fabulous movie……love it. The falconry/picnic day sounds idyllic. Maybe you CAN paint. My sister only discovered her talent when she was in her 50’s, so there’s still hope for you. I didn’t think that Denzel was the same sex as yourself. 😕


  3. Wonderful answers. I love that you arranged a falconry lesson. How innovative is that. And as for living in a place hot and exotic, well, you did live in Tinky Town for awhile (and will again) and Turkey is quite exotic. And about the feet—big feet have a better understanding with Mother Earth. I buy men’s athletic shoes b/c they are a lot more comfortable anyway. Be kind to your feet, I say.


  4. Totally agree about Denzel … some mature sex on legs .. and that laughter and smile.
    Elizabeth, good choice too … and GRATTIS, as we say in Sweden, Guess, what it means. *smile


  5. Love your answers, Dallas. I am blessed with big feet, too. I think they used to be dainty, but they never stopped growing. I love Under the Tuscan Sun! It’s on television enough, and I seem to gravitate to it every time it’s on.
