“The excitement is mounting here outside the hall.  The big stars are arriving.  There’s our host Jasia.  Rumors said she might borrow the meat dress from Lady Gaga, but this appears not to be the case.  She does look hot though.”

“Look there’s Thomas and Greta and Randy.  Is that Footnote Maven with them? Could that be Apple with Bill West? Dear Myrtle is here with Miriam Midkiff.  Look at the array of transportation they’re arriving in!  Are they trying to park that giant RV?  Does it contain their entourage?  That’s Carol.  I think Man is her only entourage.  Who’s that with the little red wagon?  That’s Kerry Scott; she brought the kids.  Is that a nun on a motorcycle? Now there’s something you don’t see everyday. That’s Sheri Fenley, she’s into alternative transportation.”

” Who’s that way in the back?  Is she wearing blue jeans?  Oh, that’s Judy from Genealogy Gals.  The word is she only wears blue jeans.  You know she’s spent years in the laboratory.  Those people don’t own grown up clothes.  I think that’s Pat with her. They always travel together. The gals are a real dark horse, but they’re nominated in 5 categories.”

” Let’s move inside and see how it goes.”

In the category of Best Picture the three nominees are:

Mom and Grandpop at the Jersey Shore

Stanley and Henrietta at the Jersey Shore

Uncle Syd and Aunt Myrna on the boardwalk

And the winner is:  Stanley and Henrietta

This picture just has so much charm and so much memory.  It’s a winner in my book.

In the category of Best Biography the nominees are:

Civil War stories–a two part series about the Civil War years of Charles Minor

The Two Jessie Martins–a stirring story told on land and sea

Charles E. Minor

And the winner is: Civil War Stories  One and Two

It’s hard to beat a true story told in voices long since gone.

In the category of Best Documentary the nominees are:

The Davies Mansion–the Genealogy of a House

Who Was my Great-grandmother

And the winner is:  The Davies Mansion

This is a story of survival with more to come

In the category of Best Screen Play the nominees are.

Life on the Farm–A Three part Series–one, two, three

Cutting Wood for the Mississippi Steamboats

Nathan’s StoryMississippi steamboat

And the award goes to:    Cutting Wood for the Mississippi Steamboats.  I can see Mark Wahlburg in the role of the young Charles Minor in Cutting Wood for the Mississippi Steamboats.  That works; there would have to be an extensive personal interview process of course.

The nominees for Best Comedy are:

New Year’s Resolutions Redux

Ohh–Christmas tree

Every family has..

And the iGene goes to   Oh..Christmas Tree.

Every once in a while we try to bring a little laughter into the world.  If you like that sort of thing check next Monday.

Wait, we’re not done.  There’s a surprise 6th category.

Shameless Pandering

This award goes to the entry that mentions the most other people in a shameless attempt to get them to read their blog. There’s only one entry. And the award goes to….The GenealogyGals.

    A meat dress? Moi? Hmmm. Let’s see. I once had a picture of a meat hat on my blog… http://creativegene.blogspot.com/2007/02/pierogiheads.html

    OK, yeah, I can see the meat dress. It would go great with the meat hat. I’m coordinated if nothing else. And red is a great color on me ;-)

    Terrific awards post! LOVE IT!!!

  6. This was a great post! I loved all of the nominees. I especially enjoyed reading your Civil War Stories and the swimsuit photo of your mom and your grandfather. I also have a couple of “take-aways” from your New Year’s post–spend less time with my family and clean less. Thank you!

    Tell me where and I’m there.

  8. Greta Koehl says:

    Loved this! Wouldn’t it be fun if there were a party like this in real life?

  9. Judy says:

    Thanks Kerry and Nancy. We spend so much time banging our heads into walls that we better be able to laugh about it.

  10. Kerry Scott says:

    Love it!

    (and no pandering necessary…I wouldn’t miss a post!)

    You girls are funny! Great job.
