Sunshine Blog Award

Presented to me by LowandSlow  , a former Journalspace buddy and aviation enthusiast  

We even met in person back in 2008

The rules of the Sunshine Blog Award are simple…just answer the following

Favorite color: blue, like my eyes….

Favorite animal: cat, especially Shila 

Favorite number: 6 (son’s birthdate), 13 (daughter’s birthdate as well as her two daughters) and/or 23 (my birthdate)

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: CocaCola (only the original!); Bitter Lemon

Facebook or Twitter: facebook… I still haven’t figured out why twitter is so popular

My passion: once upon a time it was flying, then blogging, now ????

Favorite flower: bottle brush (see picture above with Shila) and bougainvillea  

Favorite movie: musicals, historical movies

Favorite painting: no real fav (and I simply HATE modern art), but I saw this at the Louvre in Paris and liked it (a girl friend managed to take the picture without us getting caught heehee)

And finally, nominate a few other blogs and include links to them

also former Journalspacers....

Dear Maggs  from Downunder (=Australia)
HarpO      who now lives in my (former) hometown and who I have also had the priviledge of meeting in person      

BlueMoaner    an excellent writer....

Sunny a very sweet lady from Floriday and great inspiration

Now it's your turn to present this "award" to some of your favorite bloggers.....

Dorrie aka "Westy"

P.S. maybe some day I'll catch the blogging bug again! :-)


  1. geeez, I could add so many more bloggers, like Pastor Larry, BOBBY, etc. etc. But then the list would be to long... :-(

  2. Change is the only constant. Let's make Blogger the new JS. Or at least as close as we'll ever get to JS.


  3. Scott, unfortunately blogger doesn't have a cool homepage like JS did. Pity, since most other sites do (WordPress, KCL, xange). Wake up Blogger!! :-)

  4. Wow. That's a lot of work. Nice of you.
    The JS setup was more conducive to getting to know people. I guess the main page had something to do with that.
    Have fun. Let us know if you pan to visit the land of fruits and nuts any time soon.

  5. Awww,Congrats to you sweet lady ~ and thankyou for thinking of me. I'm still with this awful whatever it is, illness, and feel like poo. Have to relax and rest on the sofa so much. Breathing is hard at times. Anyway, yes I wish we could get Blogger like JS was. But now Blogger is messing with formatting ( again) Take care of you, Westy ~ ((hugs))

  6. thank you John! Yep, the main/home page of JS was one of it's best features... here you only have the option to click "next blog"

    Sunny! you take care, you hear me!! Momma Westy is keeping an eye on you *wink*

  7. Oh, I miss, Sunny. I must catch up with her, Maggs, too, however,I have difficulty leaving her a comment on her blog, being that she isn't here.
    Glad to see you still here, Westy, and I'm sure the you'll find the 'bug for writing' in time.
    Love the picture of you and Lowandslow, above. Lucky you are to have met some of the JS members.

    Warm hugs your way~

  8. Hi Westy! *wink* That's a great picture of you and Scott. I like your wonderful smiles :) :) Happy Saturday! :)

  9. Westy
    Great picture of you and Scott.
    Wish I could meet you some time.

  10. You are very special, Dorrie, never forget that. You're one of the kindest people I've ever "met" on the internet. :)

    A former JSer ;)
