* A PINTEREST QUOTE & BOOK GIVE AWAY *

I'm still learning about Pinterest and it occurred to me this afternoon that I could create a board of quotes, beginning with something kooky my mother said to me after I graduated from high school in 1971.
 
It was obviously so memorable I included it all these years later, in my memoir: From Pigtails to Chin Hairs: A Memoir & More. It's at the end of the chapter titled: "That Crowbar Changed Everything"
 
 
Becky - Summer of 1971

Please click on the link below to go to the Pinterest board and read the quote.

 
 
If you haven't already read my memoir, would you say my mother's quote would inspire/motivate you to want to read it?
 
I'm including a give-away with this blog post. If you'd like to be included for a chance to win a print copy or ebook, leave a comment below about mothers/daughters/quotes and indicate which book you prefer: print or ebook. Give-away will be open until midnight on Friday, October 24th. If you mention this on Facebook, Twitter, or your own blog, you'll get an extra point for each. Feel free to tell your family and friends - - and Good Luck!

  2. I guess it's not such a bad thing to have a crowbar fall on your head. Look how you turned out!
    Nice to see blogging again.

  4. Oh Becky. That was funny. And your Mom probably didn't even mean to be funny. (But she was). Yes, that would make me want to read the book. By the way, I'd love a print copy

    So glad you are on Pinterest. I'm there under Susan Gue. I have a lot of boards but it's SO MUCH FUN. Susan

    1. Hi Susan! Thanks! You are so right, too, because my mother definitely did not intend to be funny. She really thought I was wacky! And I'm so happy that quote makes you want to read my memoir. You are in the drawing! P.S. I LOVE Pinterest, but WOW, it is even more addictive than blogging! Can't stay on it very long!!
