Liebster Award

Well thank you Cathy over at http://muskokariver.blogspot.com/ 
for my infamous "Leibster Blog Award"
Apparently according to the "lovable Rosie O'Donnell of Bracebridge" the Leibster blog is awarded ( and I quote)
"All this is in aid of the Liebster Blog Award, which John Wiswell honoured me with this morning. I think the rules are something like, take a photo of yourself with the sharpest object in the house and name five other bloggers who you think aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer. Or maybe they ARE the sharpest knives. Sharp. Dull, wtf, I don't know. I forget and I'm way too lazy to go back to John's and find out."

And so
I have to say that strange as it would seem, I am the sharpest thing in our house!!!
I only say that because  I have just beaten Chris again in a game of Scrabble!!
Now as long term readers of this blog will suddenly realise, that this is no mean feat
basically because I am a really SHIT speller
and Chris is a PhD with little grey cells oozing out of his arse!!!!

I will give my nominations further thought!

  2. A clever twist to the award requirements, showing that you are, indeed, very sharp.
    The visual of Chris having brain cells oozing out of his bottom was just a bit too much for me, though.

  12. You are a writer from the heart and according to the picture, a very handsome man. With that said, please don't send this award off to me. My sharpness left me years ago.

  13. I refuse to play with Lady M... for some bizarre reason she always wins. Cheating I guess! Congratulations on your (the pigs) worthy award.

  14. Who needs to know how to spell anyway?
    Correct spelling is highly over rated.
    Besides, that's why God made Spellcheck!

  15. Your acceptance speech omitted the required thanks to your Mother, your agent, your production team ...

    An oversight, I'm certain.

    Conga rats and ululations!

  16. Congratualations...very well deserved!

  17. Hi, I have followed you home from my place and am enjoying myself. Congratulations. Spelling/shmelling. What did those clever people develop spell check for anyway?

  18. For some reason ;-) my scrabble games always end up x-rated.

    Must be something wrong with the letters in my box...

  19. You're looking very trim and handsome this morning John!

  20. I admire your humbleness. Jerry sometimes beats me at Scrabble, but then he refuses to use the timer and I'm usually asleep by the time he forms a word. Congratulations on your win!

  21. Love love love the pic :-)
    Terry and I play Words With Friends and I have to say I do a little dance when I beat him. Usually in the bathroom out of his sight. Complete with fist pumps. Out of his sight because he would pout.

  22. Your photograph sits right next to the one on your side bar and I can see the loss of that stone John. Hope that cheers you up!

  23. I have never beat Ron at Scrabble and probably never will! He sees 'things' I don't! So I guess he is 'sharper' than me. I wouldn't want the burden anyway!! lol

  24. Congratulations on the award! When I win at Scrabble it is a celebration of note :-)

  27. Very good picture of you! Confused about the name of the award, though. "Liebster" is German. How did that come about? And why are you supposed to pose with a sharp object for a German (?) award? Those Germans!

  28. You're looking so thin!

  30. Nice to see this passed down to you, and glad you enjoyed the gift from gracious Cathy. Not surprised someone made the "I'm sharp" joke...
