During my brief hiatus, I was notified by Michelle Dawn, of Rusin Roundup fame, that she had an award for me. So in her own words:"I have created the Through Thick and Thin Award This goes to all of my blogging friends who have stood by me no matter how negative or positive I get on my blog and that means so much to me."
And on awarding me she said, "Cliff has been a great resource of humor and advice or just positive hang in there comments."
Michelle Dawn created this award to commemorate post number 250 of her blog. Go on over and congratulate her on the milestone.
Cliff Note: Thanks for all the comments on the "Pardon me for a couple of days" post. It has become my personal policy to post here if I might be away from my blog for more than a day. Since August, 2006, the longest I've been away has been a week, and even when I went on vacation to Florida in November, 2007, I managed to access a computer twice. I have some of the best blogging friends in the world and I don't want to worry anyone by my absence, even if it's only for a few days.
