I have been, in no particular order, a laborer, a surveyor, a computer operator, a dump truck driver, an airman, a retail sales clerk, an archaeologist. a cartographer, a student, and a professor.  Now I’m retired and do what I damn well please.  Which, strangely enough, involves quite a bit of the foregoing.

  1. Hahhaha…I guess you have had a lot of fun in life. I hope you have more of it.
    I like your blog, And it’s definitely in my blogroll now.

  2. Hi Mikels, I wanted to thank you for the follow!
    My blog is a bilingual one. So you may get links to poems in English as well as to some in Italian… Pictures, on the other hand, have no language barriers 😉
    Keep up the good work.

    • Thanks, I’m honored, but I don’t think I qualify. The site specifies blogs with 200 or fewer followers, and mine is listed with twice that many, although I’m sure some (many?) of those have just been to busy to bother unfollowing. Thank you again. I really appreciate it.

      • It’s my pleasure. I really like the way you write, especially the topics that you bring to surface.

        Be assured that you do qualify for this. I was also skeptical about this rule of ‘less than 200 followers’, because I too have more than 200 and so does the individual who nominated me. I did some checking around and learnt that it doesn’t matter how many followers one has.

        • I’ve been reading up on this award, and thinking about it, and I’ve decided that, although I deeply appreciate the sentiment behind your nomination, I can’t continue the chain. It looks like many of your other nominations fit the criteria much better than my blog, since the award was created to spotlight new blogs with few followers. Thanks again.
