Super Hero Friends: Jeremy: Being Retro

You know how much I love getting awards! You also know it's been kinda a tough time around here lately, so getting this Super Blogger Award




from Jo of Jo on Food, My Travels, and a Scent of Chocolate really cheered me up. She said some really upliftings things about me which were part of that whole cheering up thing. She's just a sweetheart. Thank you Jo for honoring me with this award.


It's a unique one – you only pass it on to ONE person.  The rules are simple: tell why your friend is super, then reveal one secret about yourself.  I'm blessed with many super friends, but this choice was easy.


I pass this award on to Jeremy of Being Retro. He's probably familiar to most of you for several reasons, and these are also the reasons he's getting this Super Blogger Award.  

Jeremy is truly a superhero - look at all he does!

  • he's a co-owner of this blog (see sidebar) because he's my technical guy, he designed this all from scratch, and he's always willing to help, like when I said I needed a button to display at Quirky Pickings because she's highlighting me this month (yeah!) and within hours he gave me this: 



  • he's been a co-host of the A-Z Challenge with me for the last two years and does all the art, buttons, badges, bling, etc. there, too, and designed that site from scratch also

  • in fact, his digital art is published, and if you visit his site today, you can read all about it.  He'll be here in August on his blog tour.

  • he's a super supportive friend. When you work long, hard hours on a project with someone (I'm referring to the April A-Z Challenge) you can't help but get to know your fellow workers. We became buds. He's like a brother to me and his hysterical emails always cheer me up.

So here's to Jeremy, my Super pal, brother, friend, comrade in the fight. May the flying monkeys leave you alone, or grab that umbrella and watch out for the flying...stuff...


P.S He loves Superman, so this is perfect for that reason, too. Now go visit him and say hi, and oh yeah, he designs t-shirts, too. Buy one. They are super-soft and very unique. Tell him I sent you and if you know him, remind him how wonderful he is.

P.P.S Oh yeah, a secret about me.  Wow, are there any left?  Hmmm, OK.  (Sorry Mom...) One night I told my folks I was spending the night at a friend's house, and she told her mom she was spending the night at my house and we did neither and stayed out all night with her big brother, cruising the streets of Denver.  It was a really fun time, but the guilt about crushed me.  Sigh.  I was 18.

You rebel!
Jeremy is all of those things and more. He's one of my best friends and I'd do anything in the world for him.

Lucy said...

Congratulations on the award. I think we've all done the same thing with a friend at one time or another - I definitely did (my mum still doesn't know!)

Hey Tina,

Gosh, awards, and a mention of that amazing challenge that brings further awareness of the alphabet with 26 letters. Maybe you could, if heaven forbid, have that alphabet challenge on again next April, use the Hawaiian alphabet. It only has 12 letters!

Congrats on receiving that award. And your friend and now my friend, Jeremy is a worthy recipient. You both are my heroes.

And the streets of Denver have never recovered! LOL

Keep smiling and stay positive, my friend.

Gary :)

Congrats on the award, and what a great recipient you pass it on to!

Well I can see we were well assimilated into American culture by the time you were 18. lol I admire your bravery in getting away with that. No way I could have. My parents knew what I was up to & who I was with at the Mall in Hyannis before I even got home. Way too many people knew me by sight but I didn't know who they were. They'd all rat me out to my parents.

You wild party animal.

Congrats to Jeremy.

Jo said...

Good choice Tina, way to go Jeremy.

I didn't do anything like that until my 20s when I lived away from home anyway. Used to play hookey from school though. Can't have you being more of a rebel than me.

Hi Tina .. great that Jeremy's helping you - I'd wondered where your techie skills came from .. now I know.

Gosh - didn't we do crazy things when we were younger .. I used to drive around not using my car lights .. til someone appeared .. in the lanes of England and back in the stone age - it was probably relatively safe!

So pleased you can get the buttons up quickly etc .. part of project plan too ..

Cheers and have an easier week .. Hilary
