The Thinking Blogger?

Pat came off her Back Porch to tag me with the Thinking Blogger Award. I am touched! This award is for a blogger who has inspired someone to think. I am not sure mine is truly a 'thinking' blog... but hopefully a blog that brings a chuckle, brings a warm memory, or inspires a dish.

Now my task is to tag 5 others who have inspired me to think.

My first inspiration had to have been Peabody Culinary Concoctions. Her blog is full of photos that have always made me pause and think...'how the heck can she get that close up?'

Another award winner is Josh Lane who is spending his time in the HOV Lane. His photos are not as much about food... more about life and noticing the most obscure things. Josh has even made me notice unique things in the backroads of Alabama~ and there is plenty to notice!

One of my favorite Thinking Bloggers would have to be Jerry, who spends his days with his Thoughts, Musings, & Rants! His blog is a way to get his thoughts out of that busy head and into our busy heads. I look forward to the day we can sit under a Tuscan sun and share our musings.

One of my favorite cooking blogs is Kristen who is serving up a Dine and Dish. She always has a dish that makes me stop and think... Wow~ I've got to try that. Isn't that the definition of a Thinking Blog?

Finally a thinker who Cooks by the Seat of His Pants. Jerry will post on everything from a most unusual ingredient to ramen noodles. He is not only good~ but real.

When I make a post on our blog these are the things I work hard to be: good~ but real, innovative with something people will want to try, thoughtful in my rantings, unique and southern, and a photographer that makes you say 'Yum'!

I am not there yet...although I appreciate Pat's faith in me. In the mean time I am tagging these 5 who have inspired me!

For those of you who had such wonderful comments about Fannie Flagg~ you will be glad to know that she won the Pop Idol award.

Two award winners in one WhistleStop Blog.

Thanks y'all!

Ooo you're doing it! You are making me think. I think I need to visit those blogs! I missed you at the blogger potluck and I was all stoked for my fried green 'maters too!
Thank you for your sentiments :)

Rose said...

Congratulations Sandi. You deserve it because through your blog and your pictures you seem like somebody who is real and passionate about what she does.

PAT said...

Robin~ I am glad you stopped by...our dog is Fancy Freckles. She is definitely not a fancy-freckle-farm dog!
Shabby~ next potluck I will be there (remind me!!!)
Rose & Tut-Tut~ It is people like you who inspire me.
Pat, Early-bird, & Rhoda~ Fannie says thanks for voting. I will post when she is in town.

Glad Fannie won!

Thanks for coming by to visit with me. Hopefully I won't be living with mine either, but we do live next door. My husband and I are hoping that if (and when) we become senile our daughter will just lock us in at night so we won't roam the neighborhood and unlock us in the morning.......

Please come again........

Sandi - congratulations on your award! And you love jewelry-making, too! =)
Perhaps I should tell my friend Phyllis (shabbyinthecity) that she can get her fried green tomatoes batter from me now! heehee
By the way, I found a copy of Fannie Flagg's book, and having never read it, it is my next read! =)
