And the Winner Is...

       It took hours and hours to count, create, and tabulate the entries...hours, because there were hundreds of people interested in winning a book of poetry.
      Okay, it really only took a minute but the low number of entries isn't due to a lack of interest in Shay, Joy and Kelli's poetry. It's just that I have a small number of followers(but they are mighty).

      Here are the entries:


          Notice the fancy font I used to create the slips. My techno-skills are so amazing, I can make things appear like they were handwritten. I'm oh-so-clever that way.

         Who are you tryin' to fool? You wrote those names on slips of paper with some old, fat-tipped marker that you found in a drawer. And don't even waste your breath about using rafflecopter or some computer program to determine the winner. You folded each one in half, closed your eyes, stirred the slips up and then snagged one...

        And the winner is...

        Marcia, if you email your address, I will send the book your way. (And it's ironic that Marcia won this book. She and Shay have competed in at least one writing contest, and Shay swears that some day, she's "gonna get" Marcia.)

       (You'd better watch your back, Marcia.)


  1. I believe Marcia is a perfect winner! Guess I'll just have to purchase the book. Congrats Marcia!

  2. Congratulations, Marcia. I hope you will enjoy the book!

  3. Congrats to Marcia! (As I try not to be a sore loser)

  4. Congrats, congrats, congrats to Marcia Marcia Marcia. I'm not a bitter Jan Brady at all.

  5. Yippee! We have a winner! Lucky Marcia!

  6. Congrats to Marcia!

  7. I hope that you enjoy the book, Marcia!

  8. Whoopie! I can't wait to read all the elegant and insightful poetic musings of these wonderful women! I'm sure I shall learn just how poetry is to be done via their example. Thank you, thank you.
    And Dear Shay, Can't we all just get along? Think of the children! They're watching our every move, you know. So in the spirit of the children, I say, Nyah nyah I win!
    And Sioux, I love the font and the method. Only an elementary teacher could be so precise.

    1. Shay and Kelli--I am sure Marcia will enjoy the book. She's a gifted poet herself, so I know she will appreciate it.

      Everyone--thanks for commenting and entering. I have another giveaway (maybe in June) that you will barely be able to "survive." (That's a hint.)

      Marcia--I don't think Shay is going to let go of the grudge that easily. I can't say this with certainty, but I think Shay is quite competitive, and she doesn't like to lose. If that is indeed the case, I'm sure she's hatching a scheme as we speak...


Thanks for your comments. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by...
