An Excellent Award

I received this award from Wandering Coyote of Way-Out-West Cowpat, British Columbia (not to be confused with North Cowpat, Ontario). I considered giving her a big (((hug))), but then I reconsidered. “WC is liable to slap the shit out of me,” I thought, and I imagined her saying something like this:

“We may be friends, asshole, but nobody said anything about touching.”

The reason I imagined her saying something like that is because she says something like that all the time. WC is the real deal, what you see is what you get, she says what she means, and she means what she says.

Please know, Bloggerites, that I’m not blowing my horn—hell, I don’t even own a kazoo. But I don’t take an award lightly, either. It is a symbolic thank you, and for that I’m grateful. Delighted. Even tickled pink.

You can sure as hell bet, though, that it won’t be WC doing the tickling.

Sorry, Kara, but there are several of them, all preceded by a direction. The only one I've been to is East-By-Southeast Cowpat in Oregon.

"Way-Out-West Cowpat" - that's about the size of it, actually!

Hey, I love hugs and am very hug-able. I may seem prickly but I have a soft side and I often lament the fact that I do not get enough hugs!

The award is well-deserved my friend! I'm glad it tickled you pink!

Well deserved, Charlie, well deserved. I hereby give you the "Read Religiously with my Morning Coffee" award but don't have a thingummy for it yet, so you'll just have to take my word for it. *big wink*

A very well deserved award, indeed! You and WC are bloggers whom I read without fail every day, so no slacking now that you are a big award winner dude.

Charlie said...

WC: (((2 hugs))), one each for the home-made gifts that brought a tear to my tired eyes. And yes, you are very hug-able.

JIMMY: I just finished reading "The Blackened Spoon" and I was blown away--couldn't even think of a response, and I still can't.

But still, you take the time to visit my little corner of cyberspace . . .

PAT & SAVVY: Thank you to two classy ladies!

TUI: "Religiously" doesn't quite fit with my filthy mouth, but I'll accept the daily read. And thanks for inventing Cowpat, which I've blazenly stolen.

BARBARA: I'll make you a promise here in electric black & white: no slacking from this slackerly sloth.

Hey, take your awards howver you can get them. Recognition is recogniton.

ROBERT: There's no question of whether or not to take an award, but it would be nice if it had a check attached for $100,000 like the President got.
