The 7×7 Link Award

F.H.Hakansson (of has been generous enough to gift me this award.

Rules to the award:

…..1. Thank the person who gave it to you.


…..2. Share 7 unusual things about yourself.

At one time I worked on a pig farm.

Both my wives have the same Christian name. (Avoids embarrassing mistakes at intimate moments. 😳 )

When remarrying, we took a new surname. My new bride, understandably, did not want a second-hand name.

My parents chose my name because it seemed to be popular among radio broadcasters.

In my teens I sang soprano in a church choir.

I have performed in London’s Albert Hall. So has my father.

I once learnt to pilot a glider.

…..3. Share 7 of your  posts. (Most Beautiful, Most Helpful, Most Popular, Most Controversial, ………_Most Surprisingly Successful, Most Underrated, Most Prideworthy.) Sorry, I couldn’t fit ………_ a set of posts into the suggested categories, so I just picked 7 I particularly like.

Reflections On Government

Dues For The Muse (A Ghazal)

Love Of My Life

Poem For The Last Days

For Music

Masks Of The Crustacean

Song Of An Old Man
…..4. Nominate seven other bloggers and notify them.

Picking 7 poems was not an easy task, but picking which 7 e-logs to hail was even more challenging, especially since quite a few of the obvious choices have already obtained the 7×7 Link Award. But here we go.

I hope there are a few nice surprises here, and no disappiontments.
