I have been nominated!

I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by a fantastic blogger Cheryl!

This means a great deal to me, as I am really very green at this and it serves as validation and will motivate me to keep plugging away.  Besides being a great place to read the writings of others, what I have been most excited to see is the really accepting community that I now belong to and I thank you all for being a part of that, especially you Cheryl!

The Versatile Blogger Award rules!

  1. Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  2. Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  3. Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  4. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link back to the post on your site announcing their nomination.
  5. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

The Chosen One

Seven things about me:

1.  I have recently become a father, almost 5 months ago, at the age of 42, with the help of fertility.

2.  I am an amateur blues harmonica player.

3.  I once, a long time ago, won $25,000 at the casino for getting a Royal Flush at a Let It Ride table.

4. I am a Texas Hold ‘Em enthusiast (you’re now concerned about me having a gambling addiction).

5.  I wrote a treatment for a reality TV show and, it seemed, was an email away from meeting with MTV about it…so said the agent who later dropped me.  So close…

6.  I am happily married to a wonderful woman who not only gave me my beautiful son, but also had a wonderful son of her own that I cherish.

7.  When I was in 7th grade I bought a Ghost Busters’ jumpsuit and wore it to school…repeatedly.  In other words…I’m a geek.

8.  (BONUS)  I was named after Erich Fromm, after my mother and father read his book, “The Art of Love.”

Thanks

Erich

  3. Congrats on your nomination. It’s great that you like the blues. I just saw Charlie Musselwhite last weekend at my home town – Silver City – blues festival. I never realized before how energetic blues can be.

    • Thank you! Yes…I’ve liked blues for a while and I bet that Charlie Musselwhite concert was pretty good. 🙂
      I listen to a lot of the real old folk type blues. My favorite, as I am a harmonica enthusiast, is Sonny Boy Williamson.
      Thanks for stopping by 😀
