And the Winner Is . . . .?

DRUM ROLL, PLEASE. The winner of our first giveaway at our new blogsite is –TA-DA!
A. J. Cronin!

Yay!!!! Congratulations A.J.! You will receive a special prize from me personally. All you need to do now is email me at to verify your email address. (If I don’t hear by next Monday, I’ll choose a runner-up.)

Anyone out there lucky at winning prizes? I had a friend, a man I used to teach school with, who won all the time. Big prizes, too. He and his wife had a system to dial in to radio shows and they won things like tickets to concerts and plays, a weekend spa getaway, jewelry – I was so envious.

I won exactly once, but at least it was a good prize. I still have it, in fact. It’s a chiming clock. Hangs in my foyer. I will never, ever take it down. Ever. Beause I’ll probably never win anything again.

Are you lucky? Tell me what you’ve won, or came close to winning, or won and lost again. Or maybe you’re one of those people who never wins anything.

Talk to me. I can’t be the only one.

Have a great week.
