The Geezer Nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!

This is a great day because Tazein Mirza Saad of the beautiful blog, THE VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD! | transcendingbordersblog, just nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! Tazein is one of the kindest, most gentle people I’ve encountered on the web. She would be a priceless, inspiring jewel in the attics of anyone’s life. Thank you, Tazein, paladin for peace. And now for the rules of the Versatile Blogger:


1-Thank and link back to the person who awarded you.

2-Nominate 15 bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award and include a link to their site (and tell them that you have nominated them).

3-State 7 things about yourself.

7 Things About Me:

1-I’m a big fan of music (but who can tell?), especially baby boomer tunes. Fasten your seat belt; you’re in the Wayback Machine!Wayback Machine

2-I think a sense of humor is a wonderful thing. As a doctor, I listen for it, look for it, and rejoice when I find it. Clowning is both brave and humbling.alien grin

3-Every day I thank my lucky stars for the most wonderful gift I’ve ever known–my wife.Island Queen

4-Not many people know this about me, but I almost became an engineer. I worked for a consulting engineers way back when (there’s that Wayback Machine). It was a time of great pain and great personal growth. I remember many heroes who were my guides. Many are gone but I won’t forget them.WHKS

5-The statue of me will be finished as soon as the PlayDoh embargo has been lifted. For now the image is preserved in the Hall of Great Adventurers, otherwise known as The Annex.

    Well deserved award. Thank you for the nomination. For personal reasons I have not accepted such awards in the past. You tempted me. So I am semi accepted. I will work on seven things about me and promote your other bloggers one day at a time mainly on pinterest. As you know being 76 I feel a strong need to husband my time. I look forward to visiting your other nominee’s blogs. Pinned you.
