Okay, I did this drawing for Janet Dean’s books very “scientifically” because I wanted it to be fair and square. So, I wrote the names on little folded-up pieces of paper and put them in a bowl. Then I went out on the deck where Hubby, the retired Sheriff known for his integrity, was doing a crossword puzzle and had him draw a name. I just don’t think you could make a drawing any more fair than that!
And the name he drew is …. (drum roll) …. Cathy!
Cathy who is mother to Beth at C. Beth Blog, wife to Sam at Dwell & Cultivate, creator of beautiful quilts, grandma par excellance, planner of elaborate parties for volunteers at their church in Yuma, Arizona where Sam is pastor, and just generally someone I consider a wonderful blogging world friend.
Thank you to the rest of you who took the time to enter. You are all appreciated.
Cathy, unless you have moved since we corresponded at Christmas, I will use that address to send you the books in a couple weeks. I will be having lunch with Janet a week from next Wednesday, and I thought I would wait to mail the books to you until after that, so that I can ask her to autograph them for you.
I just finished reading (my copy — not yours!) the second book, and I think they are really a good read. Janet did a good job of making me care about the characters and keeping me interested in what happened to them next.
