* * AND THE WINNER IS........* *

Hi Everyone! As promised, today is the day to announce the winner of the Barnes & Noble $10.00 gift card. I've decided to have giveaways much more often now because:

                                             1) I think they're fun!
                                             2) Hey, it's spring!
                                             3) To give is better than to receive!

Thanks to everyone who left comments on my March 10th post. Your names were all thrown into a hat, and voila'.....the winner is......

Linda O'Connell!

Linda, please let me know if you'd like to meet for coffee or lunch and get your card.

All colors, hues, and tinges,
And every cover is a door
That turns on magic hinges."

    Dang! I'm sorry I missed this. When I'm in the midst of a 'Battle Of The Bands' contest that usually occupies most of my bloggin' time. You know, responding to comments, visiting other Battles, listening and voting there.

    So, sorry I wasn't around but I'll try to be more punctual next time.

    I read your short story entry and I liked it. But, really, that was all YOUR fault. Knowing the way men are, you should have told your husband that the jacket was a heavy Winter coat with fur and had polka dots with stripes. That way he would have gone immediately to the light jacket with little squares. You need to learn to how to reverse the wiring.

    Have you ever watched any of MARK GUNGOR'S videos at YouTube? He's a marriage counselor dude and he's really funny. Here's a URL to one of his videos I posted on my old 'STUFFS' blog years ago:

    I love the new look of the blog. It is a vast, vast improvement over the old look. And I like that "Mountains Of Christmas Bold" font, too. When I find time, I may even try that one on my BOTB blog.

    Yak Later, my friend.

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
