Thanks to Folks Who Voted Me #3 in Alibi's Best Blogger Category

I was surprised and pleased to learn that folks who participated in the Alibi's Best of Burque this year voted me #3 in the Best Blogger category:

Best Blogger

Joe Monahan, joemonahansnewmexico.blogspot.com

2) Johnny Mango, dukecityfix.com
3) Barbara Wold, 
democracyfornewmexico.com

I have to admit I hadn't paid attention to the voting this year and didn't encourage anyone to vote for me, so this is an unexpected perk. Thanks to everyone who voted for me -- always nice to learn folks out there beyond my laptop screen are appreciative of what I do. It's a good feeling.

I also have to acknowledge the critical advice and assistance I receive from Sunny the sun conure (above left) and Bosco the lovebird (above right) each and every day. They oversee my blogging, provide a running commentary on my work habits and beg me to take a break to admire their tricks and slip them treats. Thanks birdies! And just think what they could do if they had hands!

By the way, Duke City Fix won in the Best Local Website category, with the Alibi and New Mexico Independent holding down second and third. Congratulations!

Good news! I'm glad you remembered to credit Sunny and Bosco-we need more bird blogging.

joe has his alligators...we have our birdies. they are very insightful. they even chime in on whooo to support at times. and tell us other secrets which travel the bird wires only.
They have very big bird brains.

Monahan? Please. He doesn't even have open comment format. You are the brave one confronting the issues that matter barb. It has been an honor to have participated in our Democracy on this blog. Thanks to you barb!
