Queue's, Awards and a Tag

This sculpture appeared on the pavement in our town recently
It is called The Queue
Ironically there is not a queue at the bus stop in this shot
It is too early for people to be leaving, they are just coming in
You won't see me in a queue as I always use the car
and this is in spite of having a seniour citizens free bus pass

The real thing but again no real queue's

Over the last couple of weeks I have received some awards and a tag
The YOU MAKE MY DAY award came from Cindy of In a Garden
Thank you Cindy for your kind and very encouraging comments
I am truly honoured
I pass this on to Merisi of Vienna for Beginners
Merisi makes my day when I visit her and see her wonderful photos of Vienna
she has such an eye for a special photo

This award came from Isobel of The Cosy Corner
Thank you Isobel
I pass this on to Sara of Much Ado About Something
I think Sara's is an excellent blog for it's varied content and interest
her expert photography and her faith that comes through in such
a non-confrontational way

And now for the tag I received this from Mob of The Baby Journals
I pass it on to Sara (as above) as she was saying recently that she was in the 'bloggy doldrums'

I love the sculpture of the queue. It is so appropriate for Britain.

Very interesting meme. I'm not sure that I could come up with a list like that but have to agree with you on the food issue. There is nothing like freshly baked bread -- smell and taste!

Michelle-ozark crafter said...

Hello! Waving at you! LOL! Love the statue!

Vee ~ A Haven for Vee said...

Well that was a fun meme!

Pants does not equal trousers in Great Britain? Very interesting the subtle (and not so subtle) differences between countries supposedly speaking the same language.

Love Jeanne ^j^

I was so glad to see the double decker red bus in the photo. I had read that England, was phasing them out. Have a great week end, Barbara!

Mob said...

Loved your answers. Yea, your right I would be a bit put out if you had said you didn't like me!
We both like honey ham and don't like our stomachs :)
Very funny, whats on your mouspad..your the first person whos come up with that one LOL

Vienna for Beginners said...

you are so very kind to me,
thank you very much.

Sara said...

Barbara, thank you for the award and the wonderful comments about my blog...I appreciate the honor.

That's humorous about pants versus trousers...I'm sure there are other similar word discrepancies between English and Americanese!

You are so right about freshly baked bread with lots of butter...that is probably my favorite food. I rarely ever get to enjoy it; if I baked my own bread, I'd be 50 pounds heavier because I'd never be able to say no to the next slice!

Lisa said...

I enjoyed reading your Meme. Have a great weekend. Lisa

Willow said...

A great post, Barbara! I love the queue sculture.

The meme was interesting as I learned more about you. I'm a Beatles fan, too!

Dear Barbara
I loved your visit to Leigh-on-Sea.
My mother came from Southend and our uncle lived in Thorpe Bay.May I add you to my blog roll so I get to visit often?
Also lots of us are posting "DOORS" next Wednesday.
Have you got lots of interesting English doors to share?
All best wishes

Elizabeth said...

Dear Barbara
I added you to my side bar and I clicked on it and it worked - what a miracle.
Yes, I saw the pictures of Leigh on Sea earlier this morning - so very evocative for me.
How I ended up in Marrakech?
I married an America,and we brought the children up on Long Island NY.
When I retired from teaching we wanted a complete change!!!!
It certainly is.
but we are visiting our son in NY right now and go back to Marrakech at the beginning of April.

My daughter just broke up with her boyfriend, and her daddy went all over town to buy her the newest season of Gilmore Girls, and Ben and Jerry Cookie Dough icecream. I think it helped a little. I had a taste, it is very good icecream.

Penless Thoughts said...

I throughly enjoyed your informative meme, Barbara. Amazing how much we learn about each other in these things.
