Finally - the winners!!

Yes - this contest was tougher than I thought! I put up a picture I found in a store circular, and asked for the best caption for it. I was gonna pick my favorite - but I COULDN'T - so I let YOU guys choose among my four favorites (out of 19 entries).

And now, without further ado...the winner of the "interesting prize" is...GARY L. MINIX, with his incredibly funny caption: Honey!!!!! The kids have been playing with their Chia Pets too close to my Rogaine again!!!!!! Gary - send me your snail mail address and I'll get your Camo Compact (not this exact one - but I don't think you much care ROFL) out to you soon!

And for those who remember, I also promised a book with one of my stories in it to a random entrant. Using the randomizer, the winner of "Women of Passions: Ordinary Women Serving an Extraordinary God" is HOOMI/Rick Higginson (oh - it's a GUY - if you want something else, Rick, lemme know LOL). You send me your snail mail, too, and I'll send you your book.

Thanks, EVERYONE, for participating - whether it was entering, voting, or just reading the post. Blessings to you!


  1. Whoo hoo! I'm random!

    (And I never look a gift book in the mouth...)

  2. Love the caption. And Hoomi, hang on to that book. Men always shake their heads and say they don't understand women. This could be the answer to that question for you (supposing that you've ever asked it!!!!!)

  3. I couldn't believe I was even in the running when I saw your post. Congrats to the winners. That was a great caption...Rogaine! lol

  4. Oh,so close! Oh well. At least it wasn't by one vote. :)


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
