That's right, pallies!
The Dino Lounge has been honored with the You are a great read! award by my good pallie Jessica over at her wonderful blog Chronically Vintage. I am so thrilled with receiving this award. I thank Jessica so much for bestowing it upon my blog. I highly recommend her blog. I hope you'll check it out.

I'd love to be able to give this award to all of my blogging friends. You all have incredible blogs that I enjoy checking out and commenting on. It's hard for me to only highlight a select few. You all deserve this award so much. I am limiting myself, however, to only fifteen blogs since that seems to be the standard. I tried to pick an eclectic bunch of winners. If you've never visited these blogs, I hope you will take the time to stop by them. I'm sure you will like them as much as I do.

Cafe Fashionista


Dapper Kid


Fantomorte


Felinofelice


ilovedinomartin


It's Unbeweavable!


La Dolce Vita


Marisa Mell

Moon In The Gutter


Planet Mondo

Pop Champagne

Retrospace


Slacker Chic

The Sydney Girl


The Urban Gentleman II


I do hope that nobody will feel slighted if I didn't pick them. It's nothing personal. It was hard to limit myself to these blogs. I did try to pick blogs on everything from film to music to fashion. These are some of the blogs that I love and enjoy. There are so many others. I do hope the award winners will pass this award on to some of their favorite blogs as well. Congrats to all the winners. I raise a toast to you. Cheers!

Hey R.A. Thanks. I appreciate that. That's cool that I share the same name with your dad. I was named for an uncle of mine. I did have a great weekend. I didn't do a lot to celebrate the holiday. I did see the fireworks. Besides that it was more or a less a movie night with friends and some beer.

Keith said...

dino martin peters said...

Hey pallie Keith, great pix of our Dino and Mr. Bing....you certainly are findin' some great candids of our great man that I have likes never seen before...and thanks for honorin' ilovedinomartin...just don't know where you find the time to read and comment on so many bloggs...I have a hard time just researchin' and presentin' material for ilovedinomartin...and tryin' to stay current commentin' here.....

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. Your blog definitely deserved it. You are keeping that Dino magic alive and well. You do a fantastic job with your blog.

I'm glad you liked that photo. It's cool when I can introduce you to pictures because I know you've seen so many of Dino. I thought this was a nice one of Dino and Bing.

I guess I figured out a way to make the time for doing my blogs and also commenting on other blogs as well. It's helped bring in a lot of people to my blogs. They may have come here for another reason, but I've helped introduce some people to Dino. It's worth all the time and effort. Cheers!

Robert M. Lindsey said...

Great and varied list of bloggers you have there Keith. It's always fun to see what everyone else likes. I usually end up picking up one or two more blogs to follow from these lists.

I hope I don't need to say it, but don't worry about not nominating me, I just blog because I enjoy it.

Happy & inspired blogging to you always!

Hey Robert. Thanks. I hope you will find a few blogs out of this list to check out. I enjoy all of them. They aren't all retro. Some are on more modern things. You do have a wonderful blog. I wish I could have given this award to every single one of my blogging friends.
