George Walker Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, since 2001, and soon to be ex, once said :
"To those of you who received honours, awards and distinctions, I say well done. And to the C students, I say you, too, can be president of the United States..."
I do not know what grade I have, and am happily disqualified from ever following in the eminent presidential footsteps of even more eminent people by virtue of my distinguished birth in the city of Mumbai, India.
And .....one is grateful for awards bestowed upon one, by various friends, and so:
Sylvia K. , Thank you for this Superior Scribbler Award. the Spirit of Christmas pervades the blogosphere, and I wish all my blogging friends a wonderful Christmas and New year season. Greetings from a warm and sunny Mumbai :-)
Hitch-writer has sent me, what I think is an award in Spanish. I think what it says is something like "believing in proximity of folks in space ,time, and blogging....." . (I may be completely wrong, but then Spanish was never my strong point).
Thank you Hitch-writer, the award is greatly appreciated.
I am supposed to find 5 people to bestow the first award and 8 more to bestow the second. The choice is overwhelming. Unlike the Nobels, Magasayays, and Pulitzers, this is very difficult to decide. :-)
And so I dedicate these awards, to all my wonderful blogging friends, in India and across the world, who write such entertaining and thoughtful blogs, and yet, in difficult and trying times, manage to overwhelm the band width with their messages of succour and comfort....
Seasons Greetings to all....
