An Award for Little Old Me?

Jason from The Jason Show is one of my blogging heros. He has a wicked sense of humor, knows how to tell a great story, and, most important, he is able to tell the truth with remarkably little self censoring. I admire his writing and his courage. When he drops by my blog and leaves comments I have to fight the urge to dance around my computer. I can't even begin to describe how excited I was when I read his latest post and found that he had actually given ME an award.

Thank you so much Jason.

This award is especially neat because it comes with an A to Z quiz. So here are my answers...

A. Attached or single? Attached to the same guy for 24 years.
B. Best friend? Bob (see question A)
C. Cake or pie? Oh.. tough one.. how about cake with fruit but not fruit cake. A nice fruit tart with lots of fresh berries and pastry cream on sponge cake. Oh goodness I just took myself back to my Great Aunt's kitchen in Melrose Park... except no one is yelling at me in Italian.
