Have you ever won anything?  My Mom won a Red Oak tree though a radio contest in the ‘70’s, my brother won $500 in a scratch off game through the Texas Lottery, but I don’t think I’ve ever won a single thing. I’m not talking about how you studied for months and took first place in the Spelling Bee, or trained all your life to win a triathlon.  I’m talking about when Lady Luck calls your name out of the clear blue sky.

Lady Luck and a fellow blogger, ninilovespie.wordpress.com granted me the

Versatile Blogger Award!

Read what she said about whydicomeinhere and check out the other blogs while you’re there.

I looked up the origins of the Versatile Blogger Award and it doesn’t come from a panel of judges or experts.  It comes from fellow bloggers that just enjoy your blog.  For me, it came from LaMonique, and I’m very grateful and humbled.  Her blog is uplifting and always makes for a thoughtful read, thank you ‘Sweetie Pie’!

Now, that being said, let’s not forget that an award is still an award, and so I’d first like to thank my husband and kids….



Without your weirdness, I could never write from the perspective that I do.

And to my staff,



it is your constant encouragement that keeps me going.

I also think that many of my life experiences have enriched my perspective.  From our exotic outings…


spring and summer 060

to the fine cuisine we’ve have had the pleasure of enjoying,


Toad in a Hole cooked on a can stove for Cub Scouts


to all of life’s most beautiful moments.


t.p.'d bed bunks at SkyRanch Science Camp...revenge!


These have all made me the perfectly mediocre blogger that I am! Thank you.

5. Wind makes me mad. I can’t help it. (same with The Hubbers)
