Holy Crap, Lori !

So I get this comment on Mondays blog post, I'm getting some Blog Award that I've never heard of before. I was just going to ignore it since this is an honor rather than a prize bearing award with gifts of cash or even a new back hoe. But then Lori at Hahn At Home confessed she was the nominator. So just for shits and grins I visited the award web site and read the absolutely kind words that Lori wrote about Astoria Rust and your humble narrator. Thanks, Lori. I sincerely mean my thanks.

The funny thing about it all is like when someone takes a photo of you and when you see it you don't recognize yourself. I questioned every comment Lori stated, thinking "That's not me", but I guess it is me and has been all along. The cool thing about blogs is that you can create your own image. You can put forward the face you want everyone to see. In reality I can honestly say that Lori has captured the essence of Rust, and the personality flaws of its host.

See if you agree with her assessment at Rising Blogger.

Seems like I should get an award by association.

Don't try to push me into a corner and fit me into a box there Mr. Bigshot.
No one knows diversity better than me.

Gearhead...Right on time.

Syd, Funny thing was it was the post where I was sharing your email. You said all the funny stuff, so you are the one who should have been featured. Hear that, Lori. You should check out Syd, and I'll make it easy for you, I've already done a tribute to her back in the early summer of 06. You can copy and paste.
