Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Thank you to Jan Kearney of My Local Business Online for Nominating me for this fabulous award.  I’m honored to be part of the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers.  It was quite a surprise as there are so many wonderful sister written blogs in this community.  I love the logo of the award and will display it proudly!  I plan to make it a permanent fixture on the site as soon as I figure out how.

These photos are of Baboo, the mountain lion I raised.  Don’t ask how many small rugs we went through.  No matter how many toys he had to chew on, he liked those rugs.  The adult photo shows him in the courtyard of our house just waiting for a new play toy to walk in the gate.  He was a great crime deterrent.

Wow! You raised a mountain lion? Holy crap. That’s fierce! I will buy that book when you write it. One copy sold already… It looks to me like you have had quite the adventures!

    Thank you Amy. I’ll find some photos of him and post them so you can see him. I learned a lot of lessons from Boo, that was his nickname. I definitely became more aware of my movements, my environment, my energy, stalking, respectful approaches (especially when he was old because he was not declawed and had sharp teeth). It was a joy.

    You are welcome Lynn, it was my pleasure. Now I’m trying to figure out how to post the photo permanently on my blog. I’m going to try the suggestions I received from Loralee and see if that works. It was fun to received the award and a great pleasure to pay it forward.

    I think you deserved the blog award. I love the concept of your blog and you give great information. Did you listen to my interview with Debra Berg? Is that how you know about my “adventures?” I have indeed had some amazing experiences. I’m glad you found the award.
