BLOG AWARD WASHES UP ON RIVERBANK!

A month or so ago, Sydney, of Adventures In Nature, stopped by and left a comment. Curious, I returned the favor and visited her blog. Sydney’s enthusiasm for nature and animals belies her Big Apple raising. She does volunteer work at both a zoo and a wildlife rehab and education center, and is happily learning everything she can about whatever latest creature has captured her attention. I liked reading about Elvis, the Muscovy duck, and everything from a fossa (a feline-like animal related to a mongoose) to beavers and a baby ‘gator. I figured some of my readers might also get a kick out of Sydney’s adventures, so I added her blog to my “favorites” list. Yesterday, Sydney gave me this blog award—my first and only—which I appreciate very much. And I’d like to reassure her that I’m not worried in the least about compromising my masculinity just because the teapot’s decoration is a bit frilly. I may be a bear…but I’m an occasionally refined bear. As seems to be the protocol, I’d like to pass this award along to several other blogs which I read and enjoy regularly. They are: 1. Bankside 2. Moments of Mine 3. Nature Nutz 4. Roundtop Ruminations If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll stop by and give these blogs a look and a read. Again, Sydney, thank you for this neat blog award…and for being a fan of Riverdaze.

I grinned when I saw your subject line. Congratulations!

Then I was overcome with delight and gratitude when I saw your shout-out to Bankside. Thank you! What fabulous company I travel with these days!

Have a very merry birthday, Jim!

Wow, thank you for such a humbling treat, when it's your great writing and photography on a shared subject we both love that warrants the attention! I am going to jump right on visiting the other blogs, dear Bear sir, since they are favorites of yours.

I'm also tickled that I get to be the first (of many, I am certain) to recognize your great eye and point of view on your corner of the world (and river).

Kindly accept my bear hug, lol

Fabulous company…ha! Just an old river rat who'd rather putter about the bankside than engage in "productive" tasks. If you want to join such a scruffy bunch, you're certainly welcome; we'd be honored to have you along. But just remember your reputation with the Brooks Brothers and Beemer set is pretty much shot.

You have a great blog yourself. And thank you for the birthday wishes—I am having a very merry day!
