As part of the award, I have to say a few things about myself.
1. I have been writing since my teens.
2. In the 1970s I was an editorial cartoonist for a weekly newspaper in North Carolina.
3. I love traveling, which is in fact why I became a diplomat after retiring from the army.
4. Despite having been a military parachutist, I’m afraid of heights.
5. I’m allergic to cats.
6. In addition to writing, I’m a photographer and artist, which readers of my blog already know.
7. I like fried spam and peanut butter (crunchy) sandwiches.
Here are the ten blogs I nominate for this award.
Best of luck to each nominee, and keep on blogging!
