THE WALTER - a cranky award


A Cranky Old Man Award

"The Walter"

Because, unlike Suldog, I believe there cannot be enough blog awards, I have decided to add my own.  It is named after Jeff Dunham’s hysterical cranky old man puppet, “Walter.”

This award recognizes those bloggers who post consistent (3 days a week or more) original, humorous and or thought provoking material.

To accept this award you need only grab it and display it on your blog.  There are no questions to answer. If you wish to award it to anyone you feel meets the above criteria, you are hereby authorized to do so.

Without further ado and in no particular order I award to the following six bloggers:


Scott at Flight Plan

Scott posts virtually every day.  His posts are a mixture of humor, politics, and life observations.  His political commentary is not knee jerk politics; he is sometimes Liberal, sometimes Conservative and always thought provoking. 

Good stuff!

Gia at “Mayor Gia”

Gia’s posts are a mixture of cartoons and dialog.  She is reminiscent of the comic strip “Cathy” only funnier and with a potty mouth.  She generally posts three times a week.

Borderline genius.

Stephen at “The Chubby Chatterbox”

Stephen is a talented artist.  He posts almost daily, personal stories which are sometimes touching, sometimes funny, always entertaining and often mixed with interesting art history.

A daily must read.

Pearl at “Pearl why you little…”

Pearl posts daily about her strange world of bus commuting and her life with two controlling, booze drinking, chain smoking cats.  She is unique to say the least, with spot on life observations and a way of painting pictures with words.

Visit, you will not be sorry.

Fran at “Fishducky, finally!”

Fran makes the list because the internet needs a funny paper section.  Her daily posts are full of cartoons, jokes, and her funny observations.

Because we could all use a little Fishducky in our lives.

Val the Victorian at “Unbagging the Cats”

Val post daily on her life with a country Hick, a Genius son, a haunted house and battles at school or in line for Gas Station chicken and 44 oz. bottles of diet coke…it’s a little complicated, just go visit.

Smart does not have to be stuffy.

Congratulations to the award winners.  Everyone else on my follow list gets an honorable mention.  I read everyone I follow and follow posts I enjoy. 

Bloggers Rule!

  4. Whoa! I'm honored, Big Joe. I'd like to thank my mom and my dad, my 3rd grade English teacher (she was HOT!), and my parole officer. I couldn't have done it without them.

    Seriously, you really do meet some great people while blogging, do you? Thanks for thinking of me, my friend. :)

  9. It is an honor just to be nominated, but it ROCKS to win one-sixth of this award!

    I noticed an increase in visitors traipsing across my lawn. Perhaps I should have picked up a little bit, and set out a tray of cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off.

    Oh, who am I fooling! The only thing we serve visitors around here is auction meat.

  10. EGADS! :) Thanks so much! This is a great one to receive!
