I'm Stylish

History would be an excellent thing if only it were true.

Leo Tolstoy
************************
It has been twice now that I have received the Stylish Blogger Award. The first one came from the Yellow Dog Farm and another one from the Lone Star Concerto, The rules say I must thank the one who honored me with the award, so thank you both from the bottom.

Next the rules say I am supposed to tell you 7 things about myself. I don't have 7 things to tell. My life story and it's details are written out in my journal, Vagabond Journeys, in which there are over a thousand entries, some still to be rediscovered from the dusty vaults of Google. Besides a recital of facts, a biography, doesn't tell the story of a man, The only words that count are those that tell what a person is, above, around and beside all the "facts" of life.

Another rule connected with this award is that I am supposed to pass it on to 15 people, 15 other deserving blogs. I can't possibly do that. I follow 88 blogs, and I do click onto every one of them, which is why I don't get to yours as often as I want to. I figure anyone who has shown an interest in me and my writing even occasionally deserves my attention.

Lastly I'm supposed to paste the award on my journal. The images that are at the bottom of my profile have been there for years. They moved from emachines through Dell and onto Hewlett Packard. But owing to the vagaries of my contract with HP I am unable to paste anything else, no pictures, no graphics, no videos, nothing except words. So please accept my words because words are what I've got.

Although I've only had my HP printer/scanner for less than six months, I'm going to toss it and get a different brand. That's how much I hate it.
