I was rendered speechless (if that were possible with me) to find a new comment on the Grape Escape post telling me that I had been nominated and chosen for the Best Blog of the Day award!
I know that one of my bloggie friends nominated my post for this award, but I don't know who so I will thank you, whoever you might be, from the bottom of my pea pickin' heart.
I have an idea about that and will see if I can confirm this suspicion so that I may thank you properly. This is a wonderful surprise and honor!
I was not aware of the Blog of the Day site until today. It is a place where we can all nominate our favorite blogs - or even our own - for this award. Click on the award to find out more about how you may nominate yourself or others! What a nice opportunity to acknowledge our favorite blogs!
The following proclamation comes with this award:
Best Blog Awards
Best Blog of the Day Awards offers the best selection of weblogs and famous blogs on a variety of topics. Selection of Best Blogs of the Day is usually done a few days ahead of time based on nominations up to that point. Criteria include content, quality, creativity, and the personal opinion of the judges. Judges grant up to four awards each day in recognition of outstanding nominees who are recommended by visitors to the site and by a panel of judges who bestow the honor of a Daily Blog Award upon the recipients. Being named a Blog of the Day Awards Winner can be the crowning achievement of a lifetime of work or it can be the beginning of a new chapter in the life of a blogger. Presentation of these awards can bring acclaim and notoriety beyond their wildest imaginings. The accolades and praise heaped upon winners of these prestigious awards can be best described as fabulous and the stuff of legends. We don't care what blog hosting platform your weblog is hosted on. We want the best blogspot blogs, the best wordpress blogs, the best typepad blogs and so forth. If you know a weblog that should be nominated for these Daily Weblog Awards or if your own blog seems to be a likely candidate for the prize, nominate it by submitting a comment to the most recent award post.

I am speechless and ecstatic and lying on my Dr. West Fainting Couch with a cold compress and my smelling salts. ( and a large goblet of the Dom Perignon I lifted from Lavinia's apartment in Rome.)
