Coast Guard Day

Today, August 4, is Coast Guard Day. You can read all about it here.

And what better day to announce an award than Coast Guard Day? This one even looks like a life ring with a heart in the center!

I'm honored to have received the Circle of Friends Award from Medeia Sharif. Medeia's blog is chock full of interesting things, and I always learn something when I visit.

The rules are simple:
Pass the award to five other bloggers.
Post a link to their blogs on yours.
Notify them they've received an award.
Easy-peasy ... 1-2-3!

The five bloggers I'm passing the award to are:
Donna at Donna's Book Pub
Ann and Jen at Long Journey Home
Jennifer Shirk at Me, My Muse and I
Holly at Scribbles and Splashes
Lola at Sharp Pen/Dull Sword

And to all Coasties out there . . . Happy Coast Guard Day!

Great post!
So glad you highlighted this group that had the recent oil spill slime up their already down-and-dirty job.

You go, girl.
Loving this place.

Sigh. I'm leaning back, imagining that sea breeze...

Congrats, and seriously they have a day for coast guards? Do they have a day for writers?
Thanks Carol. I'm with Clarissa. When is writers day?

Congratulations, Carol, on the award. And I am so touched that you passed it on to me and Jen!

I'm knee deep in revisions today and tomorrow, but as soon as I finish, I'll post it on my blog, check out the link to Medeia, and pass on the award to five other bloggers.

As always,
