SIMELI MOUNTAIN.

In the evening the mountain opened, and the twelve robbers came in, and when they saw him they laughed, and cried out, “Bird, have we caught thee at last!”

        1. True they may not know your mistress, the sea, but they have cool swashbuckler clothes and the spirit to steal and mess with their captives – that counts for something!

    1. Thank you – I never got the one with the cupcakes and it is cute, but I think I should resist. I’d like to do an award post because I follow some blogs I really like, and I’d like to attract other people’s attention to them – an award post serves that purpose, but . . . you know. I never post the logo, the questions are too long and too much (and sometimes boring), . . . no the part I like is who gets nominated so I can go check out their blogs and find some new fun stuff!
      Thanks for thinking of me,

      1. Oh, well! I like getting and passing them along, and I’ll be nominating along the way. You should do what suits you! I like checking out the fun stuff, too! Your liebster list was full of great bloggers!

        1. Thanks! I haven’t been very good about other awards. I wish I was, but well, I like getting the awards, but I am short of time to really be a good recipient! It doesn’t sound good, but I’m a bad one. I do feel flattered – so is that nutty – yes probably! Oh well!

          1. We are all different from each other, like colors in the rainbow, and we are all needed in this world. No worries about nuttiness, it’s an important quality in this world. 🙂
