Good afternoon and welcome to my world once more. I really enjoy our little voyages of discovery where we learn and explore together and I hope you do too. Sorry I am still in award mode after the first Cliffie awards and really didn’t mean any of that bilge.
Now I can imagine some of my followers have been on the edge of their seats waiting to hear who has won the coveted “Follower of the Year” award-or the Cliffie. Andrew, Willy and I were co hosting the event and we all got dressed up in our best bow ties. What a sight we were to behold on the sofa dispensing good humour and awards like there was no tomorrow. Now as you can imagine with us three handsome guys working together there was time for more than one award. So here are the winners.
Best incompetent of the year-that man. To all those clever dicks out there I know this is effectively saying he is good at something but being good at being incompetent is nothing to boast about-believe me. Trust me I’m an Eagle
Best Eagle in a dramatic role-yours truly. I really had to pull out all of the stops this year when some of my financial transactions came to light and I deserve an Oscar for my expression of naive innocence. Move over George Clooney the Eagle has landed!
Best technical support-Uncle Mike for his help in sorting out that man’s IT issues. Thanks mate I owe you one my sanity was hanging by a thread and you really helped out.
Best bargain hunter-Uncle Dave for his never ending pursuit of a bargain and for running that man ragged in Marks whilst buying a suit. Ere I like a bit of a bargain I do!
Best Rabbit in a supporting role-Cecilia. She has often been a much needed help and support this year and we are always very grateful that she is in our lives.
Best older relative in a dodgy situation-Big Nana for arguing with the consultant whilst he was actually performing a Hernia operation on her. You go girlfriend is what this Eagle says!
Best new followers-Aunty Inez and Uncle Brian. They have both started to enjoy blogs as a result of visiting this little haven of sanity and insight so well done on sharing the award this year. Keep on blogging.
Best overseas follower-Aunty Michelle for her tireless support from a long way away. Trust me I am going to post myself in a jiffy bag before too long so that I can enjoy the American lifestyle. There must be room for a talented Eagle one way or another. Cliffie for President can’t be too far away.
Best cook-Uncle Tache for his tireless efforts to actually make that man eat good quality food and for allowing me to join in on macaroon making duty. Good on you mate and good luck with that man over Christmas. He can be a miserable so and so you know. We hope that you enjoy the pressies from us.
Best Mrs Slocomb impersonator-Uncle Nick and his Cat Lola. What a lovely pair they make.
Best Alpaca supporters-Uncle Dave, Aunty Liz and Aunty Mary for their tireless efforts on that man’s behalf to get an Alpaca installed on the balcony.
Best stalker-EOD No one does it better than you and I did enjoy the quality time we spent together recently. Hopefully you have recovered by now.
Best young person-the Apprentice. Strictly speaking he is the only young person we know but we have to keep the numbers up one way or another.
Best flower girls-the three Taylor girls for a breath taking performance and for being such a joy to be with all day at Aunty Pand’s wedding.
Best wedding of the year-Aunty Pand and Uncle Jean Michel. What a lovely day particularly as that man had more Champagne to drink than he should and that always cheers us up!
Best family cook-Mrs Rine for her wonderful Beef tea and for ferrying Big Nana round the country. I know that man and Uncle Tache had a lovely time so thank you very much and woof woof to my doggy cousins.
That only leaves one more award-yes the big one goes to Uncle Rog for taking me to places that I had only really dreamed of before and for facilitating a certain photbombing incident. Well done sir and congratulations. Long may we continue to collaborate on blogging and other issues.
There you have it the first Cliffies. Better than the Oscars as they have more categories. I am off to the after party now. I had heard that Sir Elton would be there but I suspect it will be a soggy bit of Celery stuck in my Virgin Mary. Ah well a young Eagle can dream of better things!
