One Lovely Blog Award

I want to thank Shelley Bishop for nominating Karen’s Chatt for the One Lovely Blog Award. It is an honor to be nominated by Shelley, a very talented writer and blogger, whose blog is A Sense of Family. Thank you Shelley!

One Lovely Blog Award nominees are chosen by fellow bloggers to recognize bloggers who share information, stories, thoughts, and ideas.

When nominated a blogger should do the following:

1. Thank the person who nominated them with a link to their blog
2. Add the One Lovely Blog Award logo to your blog post
3. List seven things about yourself
4. Nominate at least 7 other bloggers you follow and inform them by commenting on their blog.

Here we go. Seven things about myself:

1. I don’t like spiders but I have a very hard time killing them. I usually either avoid them or shove them outside.

2. I can’t swim.

3. I started out as a math major at Bowling Green State University before transferring to Indiana University for Dental Hygiene.

4. Back in the 1960s my best friend Karen and I were folk singers. We called ourselves the 2-Ks and I played guitar while Karen Westerberg played the tambourine. We provided entrainment for local organizations and we even won a few talent contests.

The 2-Ks!

The 2-Ks!

5. I once led a fluoride brush-in at an elementary school somewhere in Indiana while standing in the center of a football field, leading the group with a microphone.

6. I have been our church organist since I was 13 years old but I actually prefer to play the piano.

7. I have implants. (No, not that kind! DENTAL implants.)


Below are several blogs that I regularly read and nominate for the award.

Pam Seavey Schaffner, Digging Down East

Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, Always Anxiously Engaged

    Congratulations, Karen! I continue to be amazed at the amount of research you find time to do and thank you for sharing the information on your blog. I have learned so much interesting stuff about the people and happenings around the Chatt and Schumm areas since I started following “Karen’s Chatt”.

    1. Thank you, Sondra! And thanks for reading regularly.
