Welcome WON-hundred Followers Week (and then some)

Thank you for all your kind words concerning my mother. Aside from my husband, she is the person I’m closest to. So, yeah, I’m pretty upset as is my whole family. But dark moments come to everyone and time marches on, whether we want it to or not.

Anyway… in lieu of Search and Find Friday tomorrow, I’m bringing out the party banners, balloons, and baskets. This next week is officially Welcome Won-hundred Followers Week!


That means it’s time for another basket giveaway. And as some of you know, my baskets are considered very lucky (just go ask Shelley, if you don’t believe me).
So from now until Saturday, April 10th, 5 pm PST, all you follower/friends (in-whom-I-am-so-grateful-for) will have a chance to win a gift basket from a cool Flagstaff local business called Creative Gifts To Go. I picked the company because a) they’re local and a small business and b) because they have a plethora of choices so that I can fit the winner’s tastes. The date was chosen because, yep, it’s my birthday. So since I’m turning 33, I’ll be adding a bookstore gift card to one lucky runner up if we pass up 133 followers by then. There will probably be a couple of consolation prizes too, since we can't have a party without treats (and by treats I mean CHOCOLATE), music (ITUNES), and entertainment (MOVIE NIGHT!).

The party rules? Simple. Be a follower and leave me a tally below. Now I’ll leave you to your honesty to do the rest……………………….




ETA: Apparently my brother-in-law doesn't have a follower sidebar to follow him, so instead for the bonus point you can either a) leave him a message telling him you would like to follow him or b) go into your Google Reader page and cut and paste his URL to your blog role. Sorry about the mix-up!

  28. You have a delightful blog and a winning voice. I, too, have re-invented myself several times, too. I've been a teacher, counselor, bookstore owner, and now blood courier, courtesy of Hurricane Rita. A young customer once said, "Gee, Mr. Roland, you've been everything but a pirate."

    But he didn't know that in my university days, I had worked for a tax preparation firm, so I guess I've even been a pirate!

    Come check out my blog : WRITING IN THE CROSSHAIRS : http://rolandyeomans.blogspot.com/

    Have a beautiful 33rd birthday, Roland
