I'm one of the Rockin' Girls!

After a few days away from the computer (the weather is finally too good to stay inside for long) I came back to find that CS (Another Tangential Thinker) has given me a Rockin' Girl Blogger award. Now it has been a long time since I've been called a girl and a longer time since I actually was one. And I've never been called "Rockin'". Cool! With my 50th birthday hurtling towards me I am delighted. Thank you C.S. Coming from a rockinest mom, woman, snake lover, photographer blogger I am truly honoured. Proud to be considered one of the girls.

Now I get to hand out five more. To female bloggers that rock. Oh my, where to start? Stay tuned, I need a little time to think about this.

Today's dream travel destination: Parliament Hill, Ottawa. The best place to be for Canada Day celebrations. Where I celebrated Canada's 100th birthday 40 years ago, and where my son celebrated his first Canada Day 20 years ago.

Oh, look at him in his little stroller with his flag! Killing me.

You ARE a Rockin' Girl, most definitely.

Hi Voyager,
Happy Canada Day. I was at Parliament Hill on Canada's 100th birthday too. How come I didn't see you there? We spent that summer in Ottawa, my husband did some research at NRC. And we went to Epo 67.

Hearty congrats on your award!

Lovely photo of your flag-waving boy.

Dan said...

Congratulations on the award! My cat Lulu got that award last week! She kicks butt! :)

Alda said...

Congrats on being a RockinGirl!

Oh, and Parliament Hill ... nostalgia! And the picture is adorable - I see he has the trademark red locks. :)

Diana said...

You certainly do deserve it, you Rockin' Babe, you. (Rockin' and Rollin' on your skates, no less!)

Happy Canada Day!!!

I knew you had been chosen and I commended the person behind it for choosing you. You so thoroughly deserve it. Rock on, my friend.

CS said...

You're so welcome, and you were an easy choice. And thanks for the compliment!

Voyager said...

jocelyn, you are much too nice to mention that my kid looked like Winston Churchill at the time. He grew out of it. But you will be happy to know he kept the red hair. Red heads rock, yes?!

jmb, wow, you were there too in 1967!! It was an amazing day wasn't it? I remember a plane dropping flags from the sky. And a cake to feed hundreds. My Mom had dressed the whole family in 1867 period costume. That must be why you did not recognise me. That and the fact I was ten.

dumdad, see my comment to jocelyn above. You are too kind.

Hey Dan, I am humbled to share this award with Lulu.

Alda, thanks. And yes he inherited the red hair and blue eyes from me. And an innate talent for mathematics that did not come from me. Actually, nor his father. Hmmm. Alien abduction during my pregnancy?

Diana, you rock and roll too girl!

Ian, you rock too my friend. But I am afraid you will never be a rockin' girl blogger.


Voyager said...

CS, Your comment came through moments before my responses. We rock girl, oh yeah. Too bad my bones ache so after a rockin' time.

Big Brother said...

You definitely rock, congratulation. Ah the summer of '67 what a great summer.

Voyager said...

big brother, the summer of 67 was a great one. I think I saw you at Expo in Montreal. Yes, I'm sure of it.
