Family Tree Magazine's Top 40, Well, I'll Be - -

Copyright 2010, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Well, I'll be, someone nominated me for the Family Tree Top 40, and they allowed Reflections to compete.  When I read the qualifications, I honestly figured I would not be allowed on the ballot, let's be honest here, ole Carol does not blog just about family history or genealogy. 

As my header proclaims, I blog about "This and that from my world of Family Research, Yorkies, Photography, RV's and Traveling."  Sometimes I get really creative and manage to combine family research and travel in one post.  I really love that.  But, I write about my life, my interests, once in a while about my cranky days, about my family, weddings, and funerals.  I blog tombstones, birthdays, anniversaries, technology, and now and then about my yorkies.  I blog whatever catches my fancy for the day.

But, they have me on the ballot, so, I guess that means I am legal (tee hee).  I will say this, there are a lot of really good blogs represented.  WOWSERS!!!

And, I'll say this, it really really is an honor to be nominated. 

Here is the scoop, the announcement is here.  You vote here.  You can read a whole lot more about the whole thing here, and find links to all the really wonderful blogs that were nominated.

It looks like voting is through December 20th.

I would have liked to write a cute, witty, humorous post, but, my cute, witty and humor are depleted for the day.  Man is still feeling icky, we had to move Tana 30 foot to a new campsite today (more on that in a future post), I had to go find someone a humidifier the doctor ordered,  I am trying to get the twins gifts finished up and mailed, and since we are finally staying put for a while (again, more on that in a future post), I am decorating Tana for the holidays.

So, thank you to the party or parties that nominated me, I really am tickled and humbled.  Thank you to Family Tree Magazine for allowing this "not 100% of the time family history blog" in the competition. 

Congratulations to those who were also nominated, including cuz Anne over at Gene Notes

Well, I'll be.
