4 facts about today:

1.  This morning I woke up two hours earlier than usual so I could attend a local annual rummage sale starting at 9:00 a.m. and hopefully find some interesting books there.

2.  I missed the bus because the traffic lights had an overextended interest in the color, red.

3.  When I finally arrived, there were no books there.  I was gently told that this year, they are saving all of their book donations for a spring book sale.

4.  I departed from the rummage sale grinning from ear to ear, holding two shopping bags filled with mostly new or almost new games, puzzles and learning materials.  The total cost:  $11.00.   I LOVE GETTING GOOD DEALS!  The children where I work will be delighted.

My nominees are:


All are blogs that I have recently enjoyed visiting!  Wishing all of my friends and readers a wonderful weekend.

Best regards,

Thank you to Christi M. at: nominating me for this blog award.  I am honored.

Questions and Answers:

1) If you could change something what would you change?

I think it would do a world of good if all world leaders could be invited to spend a day watching young children playing together as good friends, in a high quality multicultural childcare setting.

2) If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?

I would be willing to repeat any age, and long as I could work on my current screenplay while repeating it.

3) What one thing really scares you?

Having to stand on a ladder and remove a light bulb cover using both hands.

4) What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it.

My dream is to complete my screenplay and then sell it to Hollywood.  Persistence pays off is my motto, so yes, I do believe that I have a shot.

5) If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be?

My mother–I’d initiate all of her dreams and then give her life back to her.

Likely many of these nominees do not accept awards, but that’s okay—this award lets them know that I have enjoyed their blogs and would like to recommend them to others.
