My Mystery Blogger Award


I don’t normally do blog awards because they’re meant to draw attention to newer blogs; and I’ve been around a few blog years (even more in dog years) and have been blessed with a growing following. However, I’ve been nominated for a Mystery Blogger Award by both Tim Holman of Beard with a Blog and Jhavinder Thakur of Fun and Factz 4U, so it ith obviouthly a thign (said with tongue in cheek). Thanks, guys—I’m honored!

The Rules:

  • Use the logo and list the rules
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself (see below)
  • Answer the questions you were asked (see belower)
  • Nominate other blogs and notify them (see belowerer)
  • Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice, with one weird or funny question

Three Things About Me (I already talk too much about myself, but here goes):

  1. Tomorrow is my birthday and I’ll probably blog about it (did I mention that I talk too much about myself?).
  2. My daughter Beth, a brilliant artist and clothing designer (like her mother), is visiting!
  3. My daughter Mandy, who’s a writer and filmmaker (like her dad), will be working on my next feature film with me!

The Five Questions for Me to Answer:

  1. What do you do in your free time? I love reading aloud with my wife, visiting museums, historical sites and nature, and of course watching movies; my work (writing and filmmaking) is my passion, so “free time” has little meaning for me.
  2. Name the place you like most? Cities: London and New York. Notcities: Big Sur, Sequoia and Yosemite, the Canadian Rockies, almost any beach or mountain.
  3. What is your opinion on “God”? I believe love (selfless, divine love) is the most powerful force in the universe, and that God himself (not a “he” in the human sense) is the source of that love (1 John 4:8). So I’m in. Now and forever.
  4. If you get a huge amount of money what you will do? Pay off mortgage, pay off kid’s college loans, set up a non-profit foundation, and make more movies!
  5. Will you forgive someone who cheats on you? Yes (see #3 above).

My Nominees (people you should discover!):

  5. What are the last words you want to hear before dying, and/or the first words you want to hear after dying?

    Hey, when multiple people nominate you, you feel exponentially more motivated to do it, right? I know this because, um, you’re the third person to nominate me 😆
    I WILL get around to it eventually, but right now I just have a draft saved of lots of questions to answer! Hahaha

    Congratulations, Mystery Blogger, and Happy Birthday! Can’t help but wonder if you’ll celebrate by watching a movie at home, tour a museum in a city or visit a site in a notcity. Whatever you do, make it memorable!

    Thanks so much for the nomination, Mitch! Since I only post an average of once a week, I don’t do awards anymore, but I very much appreciate it when someone thinks enough of my blog to nominate it. And I have to say, the Mystery Blogger award is very tempting….
    Also, congrats on your nomination for it! It was nice to read your answers and to scroll through your list of nominees. I now have several new blogs to check out. Thanks again!
