Mystery Blogger Award!!! (3)


I was gifted with the Mystery Blogger Award by Suze! Thanks so much!

You can find Suze blogging at the above link.


What is Mystery Blogger award?

“Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. –Okoto Enigma

Rules for the following are:

• Put the award logo/image on your blog.

• List the rules.

• Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

• Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.

• Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.

• You have to nominate 10-20 people.

• Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog. 

• Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question

• Share a link to your best posts. 


Three things about myself:

  1. I volunteered working in libraries while I was in Jr. High and High School, and later at my kid’s school. I got a lot of experience of all kinds of tasks that go on in libraries, such as checking out books, classifying books, getting them ready for the shelf, shelving books, etc. Yet, when I later on applied for a paying job doing the same things, I didn’t get hired.
  2. I’m not really superstitious, but I will knock wood three times in certain circumstances, just in case.
  3. I had a really cool snake ring when I was a kid, but I lost it at a lake. I still miss it. I also lost a neat puzzle ring at the airport in Yakota AFB in Japan. I like rings, but hardly ever wear them… I just like all the strange and weird ones best, so every time I see one, I buy it.


Question I was given to answer by Suze:


  1. you look in your fridge and see the following: two eggs, a bag of fresh spinach, a jar of jelly, pickles (sweet not dill) a rasher of bacon and some French dressing. What do you do for dinner?

I’d make scrambled eggs & bacon, have the spinach and French dressing for a salad, and a spoonful of jelly for dessert. You can keep the pickle.

  1. Give me your best answer (screw modesty) to “why were you nominated?”

Because you like me…you really like me! And, you know I can’t resist doing these award things.

  1.  If you were stuck writing non-fiction for the rest of your bloggery term..what subject would you write about?

Aliens, UFOs, Ghosts, all weird things…because they are real and true.

  1.  Yes or no, and why or why not??? aren’t these the BEST questions EVER?

Yes! I think these questions are some of the best I’ve seen, because they are fun and not too deep and thought provoking. I tend to skip those kind.

  1. If you could rename your blog, what would you name it?

My Weird World


My favorite posts are – all of them If I didn’t like them I wouldn’t post them. Take your pick out of all the variety on here.


So, I’m leaving this award open to any of you that want to take part. Grab the banner, answer some questions, and have fun with it!

You can answer the same questions Suze gave me, or here’s a few more suggestions:

  • what’s your fairy tale name? (favorite color, favorite flower/favorite fantasy character)
  • look to your right … what do you see?
  • you can only spend $10 (ten dollars) for a gift for someone = where do you go, and what do you buy
  • You travel to a galaxy far far away…what do you find there?


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

Inspirational Blogger Award


Inspirational Blogger Award




Thanks for the nomination for this award, Suze! (you can find her blog by clicking the above link)

Here’s some rules. (do them if you want to…or not)

  1. Answer five questions posed by the person nominating you.
  2. Give one random fact about yourself.
  3. Link back to the blog of the person nomination you.
  4. Link back to the one who nominated you.
  5. Nominate 5 blogs to receive this award
  6. Pose them 5 questions of your own devising (Four personal, one stupid/fun)

These are the questions Suze asked:

My questions to you:

  1. What would your perfect blogging/writing room look like?
  2. When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?
  3. Who has impressed you most with what they’ve accomplished?
  4. What is the most annoying question that people ask you?
  5. As the only human left on Earth, what would you do?

My answers:

  1. It would have my computer, a bunch of shelves, and filing cabinets. I’d want a nice desk, with enough space to spread things out, and some drawers for office supplies. I’d have books, knick-knacks, and plants on the shelves. A window, no even better, a glass French type door, leading to a secluded patio space, with lots of flowers and plants, and bird feeders.
  2. I don’t think people come to me for help, that I know of. Sometimes my daughters want an old family favorite recipe, or something.
  3. My grand-daughter
  4. It’s annoying to be asked every day, ‘what do you want for breakfast, lunch, supper…it’s your decision’. I just can’t make decisions like that. I don’t care what we have. I’ll cook whatever, and eat whatever, just don’t make me decide.
  5. The last person on Earth? I don’t know how that would even happen. I’d want to have fun, going into stores and playing around with all the merchandise. Mostly though, I’d be scared. I hate to be alone, even in my own house. As clumsy as I am, I’d probably fall down first thing, and there’d be nobody to help me up! 🙂


I guess that would be my random fact about myself…I don’t like being all by myself.

Now, the rest of the rules I don’t do. I don’t usually send out nominations for these, as I feel everyone deserves all the awards. I know how much time and effort it takes to keep up with a blog, so you all should be recognized.

If you want to grab the badge, and accept this award for yourself, please feel free to do that. Answer these same questions, and go have a look at the ones Suze answerd on her blog. There are interesting questions there, too. 🙂

Thanks again, for the nomination, Suze! 🙂

NABLOPOMO – # 21 – BLOGGING AWARDSuntitleduntitled

Today’s 21st post for the NaBloPoMo blogging challenge, I’m accepting these two awesome awards that was presented to me recently. They are the Liebster Award, and the Infinity Dreams Award.

Thank you so much Bobbi, for nominating me for these two awards. Bobbi’s blog “Drawing on Words” is a delight to read, and can be found here … you should go see what all she posts 🙂

The rules for these awards are:

Thank the person who nominated you for the award, and link back to their blog.

Include the award logos on your post.

Nominate other bloggers that you enjoy reading.

Copy the rules onto your blog.

Tell 11 facts about yourself. (you can use these questions, or make up your own)


Here are the questions I was asked, and my answers:

  1. What’s the story of your blog’s name?

I chose the name of “Teleportingweena” because I love the idea of time-travel. One of my favorite movies is “The Time Machine”, and one of the character’s name is Weena. We also had a cat that was named Weena (Rowena). She sadly passed on, this past August. We always said she could actually teleport herself, because she’d disappear for hours. As an inside cat, there are only so many hiding places, and we looked everywhere. Then, Weena would suddenly re-appear in the last place we’d seen her, looking like she knew secrets of some other dimension. So, that’s why…”Teleportingweena” 🙂

2. Why did you start blogging?

I wanted someone, somewhere to read my stories. I started out on Blogger, and have lots of stories there, and my serial Fan Fiction Story, “Two Souls: Into the Fire”, which I add to three times a week. You can find them here Then, I started the blog here on WordPress, to do more things with my fiction, and to do the many challenges I take part in.

3. What was your favorite class in High School?

English…because I love words, writing, and we got to do essays in that class. Most people would groan when we were supposed to write one, but not me 🙂

4. Favorite Movie?

Well, the Time Machine (the original version), and…pretty much any movie that has rock music in it. Some titles…Dazed and Confused, That Thing You Do, Rock Star, Ricki and the Flash, Empire Records, and all the John Hughes movies of the 80s.

5. Favorite Books?

My favorite book is “Lost Souls” by Poppy Z. Brite (that is the book I write my fan-fiction on). Another favorite that I read at least once a year is “The Survival of Jan Little” by John Man, and I like reading series by the same author, such as all the Stephanie Plum novels, by Janet Evanovich, and all the Shopaholic novels, by Sophie Kinsella.

6. Weirdest thing you eat?

Burned meat. Very, very, very, well done, and better if burned. Any kind of meat. Also, some think this is weird, but I like to put ketchup on meat. 🙂 …A couple of other foods I have eaten, and would eat again are snails (escargot) yum in butter sauce, and fried frog legs (tastes like chicken) 🙂

7. What is your party trick?

I don’t like going to parties, so getting out of going sometimes is tricky. I have some silly excuses, sometimes, whether true or not. One was that I broke my tooth, and didn’t want anyone to see me! haha. actually that was the truth 🙂

8.  What 3 things would you take to a desert island with you?

My make-up. I don’t go anywhere without make-up on. I guess some food, because I have low blood sugar, and tend to feel faint if I don’t eat. And, my time machine, so I can get off that desert island as fast as possible 🙂

9.  If aliens invaded the planet, why would you be the 1st they should take?

Aliens would come to Earth to pick me up. You see, I was dropped off on this planet many years ago, by my fellow space travelers…to do research on this big blue ball you call home. … I am one of them, and it’s time to go back to my home planet. 🙂

10. Share 1 thing you didn’t understand about the world when you were a kid.

I never could understand how the Earth, or any planet could be so huge, and just be floating around in space. It boggles the mind to even think about it even now!

11. ??

There wasn’t an 11th question to ask, unless I missed it. Hmmm…guess I’ll make one up…

If you drive, what kind of vehicle do you have. What dream vehicle would you want?

We only have one…it’s an older, blue Dodge Pick-up. It only has a cassette player (which we don’t use), crank window handles you have to manually roll up or down, but yay, the A/C works! My dream cars would be… a classic Thunderbird, 2 door, powder blue w/white convertible top, or an IROC-Z Camaro… I’ve always loved these. 🙂


My nominations are as follows…there is no obligation to accept these awards, but just know I love reading your blogs!

For today’s NaBloPoMo  Day # 4 post, I’m catching up with a couple of Blogging Awards I’ve been nominated for recently. The Creative Blogger Award, and the Dragon’s Loyalty Award. I’d like to thank Beaton, for thinking of me for these two awards. His blog is called “Becoming the Muse” and can be found here… His writing is truly an adventure to read, whether serious subjects, humorous stories, or thought provoking, he always speaks his mind. You won’t be disappointed by visiting! Thanks again, B!


The rules:

Participation is optional.

  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog.
  2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate some bloggers in return, and notify them of their nomination.
  4. Keep the rules in your post, so it makes it easy for everyone to know what to do.

That sounds easy to do…except for nominating someone. I just can’t choose…I enjoy every blog I read and follow. You are all so creative, and loyal to your readers. I appreciate every one of you, so I feel everyone deserves these awards. Feel free to grab the logo for them, write a few facts about yourself, and nominate anyone you want. 🙂


5 Facts about me…

  • I’ve traveled and lived in quite a few places. Here’s the ones I remember at the moment … Texas (where I live), New Mexico, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Alaska, Hawaii, Missouri, Arkansas, New York, Kansas, California, Washington state, England, Ireland, France, Germany, Mexico, Japan.
  • I met Kinky Friedman when he was running for Governor of Texas, in 2006. It was at a book signing/speech here in town. He’s a wonderful speaker, author, singer/songwriter, politician.
  • I’ve been through earthquakes and a typhoon while in Japan. I’ve also been in an F-5 Tornado, here in town, back in 1970.
  • I went to see a hot-air balloon festival/demonstration (with my daughter)…but we were too late…the balloons were already gone when we got there…so we sat out in the parking lot, just eating our McDonald’s breakfast, then went home, laughing at ourselves.
  • I write fan fiction on my other blog. It’s on BlogSpot. The story I write is based on the book “Lost Souls” by Poppy Z. Brite. My blog can be found here
