Sunshine Blogger Award Nod


Laura has nominated me for my second Sunshine Blogger Award as she herself has been. Click on her name to be re-directed to her site. Laura is fun and is living her life unapologetically and she should indeed be proud of herself for being an engaging blogger who writes about many different topics. I would like to thank her for including me in her post.



Since this is the second time I’ve been nominated I pretty much have a good idea of what to do. Laura has presented these questions she wants me to answer.


I have been nominated now for several awards but never actually received the award itself. This includes a Leibster Award, of which I hope I spelled correctly, and a Mystery Blogger nod. Yet alas I apparently fell short of eternal glory as a recipient of any of them. Still I’m seizing the moment again because it is a good way to connect with other writers. Which is always a good thing.


1) One of my favorite memories of my youth is a good question. At my age I’ve pretty much forgotten a lot of “Little Jared.” Yes, I spoke of myself in third-person just then but anyway I think I would have to say it was when I learned I had been accepted to the University of Arizona in Tuscon, Arizona. I wanted to attend and study criminal justice but unfortunately those plans fell apart and I ended up going to my in-state University.

Which, quite honestly, left me unmotivated to really try that hard. I wanted to leave my hometown eating my dust but things are just the way they are sometimes. I learned to accept my place but my heart lies out in the South West part of the States where I once visited and fell absolutely in love with Phoenix, Tempe and the city of Scottsdale, Arizona when I was younger.

2) My favorite season is fall. Mainly because humidity is as if you were walking through a sauna here in the Tennessee Valley. I don’t like that. Think about it. When your cold you can layer but when you are hot and sticky you can’t very well frolick through town doing errands in your birthday suit now can you? Strike that. You could and frankly some people might as well be wearing nothing due to today’s fashions where the skimpier the better seems to be the idea.

***

3) My favorite songs are about love but for a pick me up and get going song I would have to say most definitely without a doubt “Renegades of Funk” by Rage Against The Machine.

***

4) A super power? Well, I guess if I was immortal would be a super power so I’ll go with that one. I would love to see my niece and nephews grow up and have children of their own.

***

5) If I could time travel I would go back in time and attend live concerts of The Doors, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Heart and Led Zeppelin.

***

6) My favorite comedian is by far and above Dave Chappelle. He is intelligent, witty and pushes the envelope. All while being hysterical.

***

7) Anytime a Harry Potter movie is on television I’m watching it. My favorite character is Hermione.

***

8) My pet peeve or what I think is annoying is when people talk in a movie theater. If you want to talk to someone then go do it elsewhere. Most people are there to watch the movie and to be inconsiderate of that fact drives me crazy.

***

9) This is a Mayan symbol of a black panther. The Mayans believed the panther was a deity that looked over the forest. I don’t just like cats, I love them. That’s why I had a big cat tattooed on my ankle.

***

10) My favorite topic to write about is love. Because love is kind, non-judgemental, vast and gives sustenance to the soul.


So there you have it. Now, what is left is to nominate more people to do this very thing. Yet I am not for one second going to nominate just a few of my most favorite writers and leave others out. I love and wish I could nominate all of my favorite writers here on WordPress. It just feels wrong of me. Yet if I did I would ask them the same questions.

So again many thanks to Laura for thinking of me to include me in one of her posts. Many thanks Laura.

    I enjoyed reading your answers. I went down the list, nodding my head in agreement & fistbumping the air, as if you could see me. Lol! Anyway, I agree with every single answer, especially going back in time & attending all the awesome concerts, particularly Zeppelin! I’m still a little jealous of my previous boss who had the pleasure of seeing them live! Anyway, great answers, Winchester! I enjoyed getting to know you a little better. 😊

    1. I can imagine so. When my mother was younger Jim Morrison came to Nashville and against my grandparent’s will she snuck out to go see him. Lol.

        Lol! I would have loved to see him live. Well, as long as the police weren’t involved.
