The Envelope (well, really just a little piece of folded-up paper) Pleeeease!

 

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.

Congratulations, Cathy!

    Thank you, Sandra! I’m very excited about getting the books. I will read them right away and then let Beth read them. I already know I’ll like them.

    Yes, wait to send. I’d LOVE to have them autographed and yes, our address is the same.

    I’m excited! -Cathy

    Hilary — Thank you, friend, for always being such an encouragement to me and others. Could you please move into a house down the block so that we can have coffee together regularly? 🙂

    Cathy — I’m delighted the books are going to be enjoyed, not just by you but by Beth too!

    Second only to me winning myself 🙂 this is the best! I’m sure glad my mom offered to let me read them since of course I was going to tell her to let me…uh, I mean, ASK her…anyway!

    Beth — I hope you and your mom both enjoy them as much as I did. 🙂
