Wardlow was among those who lived the next three years as prisoners of war. This is his story of that time.”  I nominate you for the Reader’s Appreciation Award

For you The Scottie Chronicles, I pass on the Reader Appreciation Award! Thank for blazing unknown territory. I know it is uncomfortable at first but if it works it will all be worth it.

You all make blogging fun and interesting! You don’t have to accept the award if you don’t want to but I just want you to know I for one am reading your blogs and I thank you for keeping my life interesting. It is kind of like reading living books here and how awesome is that.
