And the Winner Is...

My thanks to everyone who visited and left comments on last Friday's post.  You come up with some of the greatest captions!!  I couldn't possibly choose the best one so I selected the winner by simple drawing.  Congratulations to Becky Barton.  Becky chose as her prize a copy of 16 LIGHTHOUSE ROAD by Debbie Macomber.

Since, in my infinite wisdom, I neglected to ask my captioners to leave their e-mail addresses, I tracked Becky down on Facebook.  That's what I get for trying to do a spontaneous contest.

And I'm cheating a bit today, since it's already after 10:00 (PM), and letting this be my post for the day.

Nah, I've got to include this - Got to see all four grandkids this weekend.  Saturday morning, older grandson, final basketball game of the season, they won in double overtime.  Saturday afternoon, younger granddaughter, last basketball game of the season, single overtime, called as a tie.  Saturday evening, older granddaughter, fantastic performance in her school musical.  Sunday afternoon, younger grandson, back to back lacrosse games, won them both, both shut outs, and he scored in both games.  Almost more excitement than my heart could stand.

So, what fun things did you do over the weekend?

My current word count: 31,131

I'm currently enjoying: Treachery in Death by JD Robb

Groaner of the day: The jockey saw the horse groom sprinkling something behind his horse's neck. "What's that?" asked the jockey.

"It's yeast", answered the groom. "This will discourage birds from mistakenly building nests in your horse's beautiful mane."

"Will that really work?" asked the jockey.

"Of course!" replied the groom, "for yeast is yeast and nest is nest, and never the mane shall tweet."

Congrats! on your word count. Retirement is great if you're a writer. I haven't read JD Robb in a few years. Enjoy the read.
