Versatile Bloggers Award

Since i recieved my first Versatile Bloggers Award from Hocam  , i have also received the award from  Lornas voice , momfog , Chronicals of Illusions ,  sons o thunder  , mature student hanging in there   and
Words from my soul

At the same time i recieved both the Liebster and the Rebekah Loper Awards from Chronicals of Illusions

And i would like to thank everyone concerned very much for the awards and thinking my blog is worthy, it makes me feel that its worth while.

Thats my acceptance speech over and done with.

It can only go downhill from here 🙂

The Liebster Award

The Rebekah Loper Award

Now i have to tell everyone seven things about me.

1. I stopped working full-time at my trade, a heating engineer, 10 years ago i just got fed up with it and working.
2. Worked part-time at d.i.y. for people, started and finished when i wanted, never before 10 a.m.

3. 20 years ago i worked for an undertaker for 3 years, handling the dead from start to finish, and i must say i enjoyed my time there and we had some laughs, even at a few funerals.
4. I love being grumpy and straight the point, i believe if you have something to say, say it. If people don’t like it sobeit.
5. I also like practical jokes, our best friends got new expensive cases for a trip. While they were away i made up a letter from the case supplier inviting them to a hotel for a reception with others who bought the cases, and a prize of another set. They went because they told us about it and it was very hard to keep a straight face. They never found out it was me.
6. I have been married to my wife Gwen for 45 happy years, we know each other from the age of 17, we are each others best friend.
7. I like to have a beer or brandy or both when with friends or out to dinner, but i don’t like to drink in the house, i think it’s because my father never did. I might have a beer on a steaming hot day but we have not had any for years.


Well that’s my seven facts, and its my part of the award completed, now to pass it on to 15 people. In the main i  have tried to give them to new blogs that i found.

As someone said, because you did not get this award it doe’s not mean i don’t like your blog.

  1. Hi Harry,
    Thank you for the mention and passing on the love! Is that hard for a grumpy pensioner? I’m looking forward to reading your recommendations. I hope your friends with the suitcases don’t read your blog or your well kept little secret is rumbled:-)

    • Hocam, thank you for starting it, passing on love gets harder every year 🙂
      They will never ever find out, its with me until i die.
      Can i have your name for the post please, its all i have to add to it.

  2. Thank you so much my friend. You are too kind! 😀

  3. Congratulations on the awards! And if your friends who bought the new cases and went to the reception read your blog….they know it was you now! HAHAHA!

  4. Harry, I searched your site for “versatile blogger” before I nominated you, just to avoid the “embarrassment of riches” that happened to me. I’m sorry that the search didn’t pick up your prior nominations. This is not to say you don’t deserve recognition. Hey, maybe it’s the Universe’s way of kicking your keester into accepting the recognition?

    Anyway, you can feel thrice blessed or thrice … Anyhoo, worked for an undertaker, huh?

  5. Harry congrats you deserve it, your blog it just brill x Thank you so much for thinking about this newbie x I am honoured, thank you x

  6. HeHe!!! Grumpy Old man…Heh, yeah right…man I just stumbled onto your message, and it’s still not showing up on my recent comments…anyway..Congratulations on all three rewards, I’m sure you’ll get many more..and thank you for the shout out!!! Here’s a little something for you from my poem archives: Grumpy Old Man!!!

  8. That’s wonderful, Harry. Congratulations!

  9. Ciao Harry,

    Well done on the award! Congrats.

  10. Congrats on the award!
    Gumpy people are OK…Do you remember the character Victor Meldrew from the TV series “One foot in the grave” ?

  11. If you lived here, you’d be a hopeless alcoholic by now. We have steaming hot days 2/3 of the year. 🙂

  12. Congratulations! Good to see your new work is taking off so well! I know I don’t stop by often, but one of these days I will have more hours in the day. Not sure when!

  18. An update has been made to this post that i forgot to do, its just the top bit down to here.

    ” Now i have to tell everyone seven things about me “

  19. Oh my gosh! I feel like Sally Field at the Oscars! You like me! Thanks so much for including me. I feel honored and a little hungry. But them I’m a guy. I’m always hungry. But seldom honored. That is a great list of blogs!

  20. Thank you, you old dribbler you!! Sorry it has taken me an age but of course you know all about age don’t you.
    So that is the insult over and I shall post it onto my blog tomorrow.
    I thank you.

  21. Ooh, I posted a long thank you and now not sure if you got that. I will wait and see and post again if not.

  22. Undertaker, eh? Yikes. That is one job I would not want to do. But if I did, I would be really good at it. 😉

    • Its how you look at the job, you must look at the people as bodies, nothing else, and not starting to feel sorry or you could not do the job, that sounds very callous but that’s life ( or death ) 🙂

I appreciate any comments you leave, and thank you for reading my posts and please call back again.
