First, I had to ponder the whole notion of awarding a prize known as a “Shaggy” to another male, for fear that it may contain some trace elements of homo-eroticism.
Then, I had to ponder the whole notion of that last sentence, for fear that it may contain some trace elements of homo-phobia.
Finally, having deemed myself to be clean on both counts, I can now get on with the task at hand, which is presenting The Third Shagadelic Contribution To Blogland Award to the mighty Buffalo over at “Buffalo’s Path”.
That I have chosen the excellent post “Bangkok” is not particularly significant; I would grant the award to the entire blog only the rules don’t allow it; I know I came up with them, but that’s beside the point…
Buffalo’s natural ability to put a story on paper (screen?) grabs you by the scruff of the neck and drops you right into the thick of the action. With the minimum of adjectives and descriptive terms you are treated to all the sights, sounds and smells of a given situation. It won’t take you long to work out after scouring his blog that in conjunction with his considerable talent he has a seemingly endless well of experiences from which to draw jaw-dropping material.
While you may not necessarily agree with his viewpoint, you are left in no doubt what it is, and you certainly do not regret allowing him to share it with you. He also has the honorable quality of being unafraid to broach any topic you care to float in his particular direction.
While I very much doubt there are many who come to my blog that have not also been to his, I strongly recommend it to those who haven’t. Take a bow, Buffalo, and keep up the excellent work.
