What fun! This blog has not received an award in quite some time.
I'd like to thank MB from Pleasing 2 the Eye for giving me this award!
Awards are like BOOTY to the pirate blogs!!!

Here are my instructions upon getting this award:
• In a post on your blog, nominate 15 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.
• In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.
• In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
• In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
• In the same post, include this set of rules.
• Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

7 Random things about me:

1. I'm an over-60 pirate and retired attorney (which some people will think is the same as a pirate).
2. I have three blogs: "A Pirate Looks Past Sixty", "Pirate Knitting" and "Quig Land".
3. I have very bravely placed all in the A-Z Challenge starting April 2012.
4. My favorite things are knitting, reading, trying to write and playing the piano.
5. I have also enjoyed sailing in my life (hence the pirate themes) and look forward to do it again this summer.
6. I enjoy looking at the bizarre side of life
7. I have three wonderful grandchildren and two wonderful children, now adults.
