An Aptly-Awarded Award

I'm humbled by the generosity of Kathryn at Prairie Rose Designs for choosing this blog as the latest recipient of the "Aptly-Named Blog Award." The honor came following the post just preceding this one, but I suspect a series of agricultural posts last summer played a significant part in our recognition.

Since we are firm believers that rewarding behavior enforces it, our readers can rest assured that we will endeavor to live up to all that this award stands for, and will strive to continue winning this award for many years to come!

Thanks for visiting. Interview requests can be submitted in the comments section.


  1. Congratulations on such a prestigious honor! We are all very happy for you!
    Sincerely the Whitakers

  2. Congratulations on your 'big' award.


  3. Congratulations! I am honored to bestow the award on such a worthy recipient. A few more posts from Lily would have rendered your blog unworthy, but since she hasn't posted since England, you may count yourselves blessed. *naughty grin*
    You may also note you are the first to receive this distinguished award!

  4. So Mr. Riggenbach... have you got any interview requests yet? ;-)

  5. Soooo what's up? You Riggenbach's may have reached the pinnacle of bloggity success with this award but that's no excuse for resting on your laurels. Your fans await you!

    By the way, how's the stubble in that cornfield coming along these days? I do believe we were promised regular updates on its decomposition. Surely I am not the only one of your readers who was looking forward to a series of scintillating posts on that subject. O yeah.

  6. Thank you all for your congratulatory remarks. No interview requests have come through yet, although I'm sure that's just because of the weather.

    Rather than seeing the recent lack of posts as resting on our laurels, I prefer to see it as an attempt to insure our position in the running for the next crowning of the winner of the "Aptly-Named Blog Award."

    I apologize for leaving everyone in the dark on the corn stubble decomposition. I'll try to shed some light on the subject in a future post.
