This blog, not yet five weeks young, has just won a sort of runner-up award given by a lively and generous blogger called Judy in Kentucky of Living on the Other Side of the Hill.
Judy runs a great blog about her family life sprinkled with many references to the history of her country, illustrated with fine pix. Her blog is a satisfying way to glimpse the lifestyle in a land far away ...
Anyway, there's a thing going on over there where winning bloggers get to nominate five others for a Blogger Award. Judy spent her five awards but was kind enough to nominate mine and one other as worthy of a look. She also mentioned 70 Plus's sister blog Journeys in Creative Writing as an OK site, and has constantly dealt out encouragement since she sent the very first comment to the 70 Plus site.
I didn't win an award, of course, but decided I'd post a picture of just half of the Blogger Trophy as a sort of incentive for effort ...
While I'm here, I'd like to pay my own little tribute to Olive Riley, Australian blogger extraordinaire, who sadly died on July 12 at age 108. What a legend! See All About Olive
