Finally, The Prizes

Again, thank you to all of you who sent questions back at the first of the year. I did not think that it would take me this long to tie up all of the loose ends, but there you have it. It did. Originally, I said that I would choose "a winner". The winner was to be the person whose question I liked best - not objective and really not fair; but again, there you have it.

As I tried to determine which question I liked best, I realized that, even though there were only a few in the running, it was a difficult task. I could not decide. They all were a favorite for one reason or another. So, everyone wins! The prizes are as follows:

Anonymous and Weber: You each will receive a Barnes and Nobel gift card. This is to allow you to find answers to those burning questions from a reputable source, which I am not. I hope the fact that you will very likely purchase something with literary merit will not keep you from continuing to visit here. Enjoy!

Lynn: Thanks for your question on creativity. It really made me think and it allowed me to relive some moments that I had not visited in a long time. You will receive Sark's New Creative Companion: Ways To Free Your Creative Spirit. If you already have this book let me know.

Ikanlala: Despite the fact that skiing is not an everyday word in Texas, we do knit socks here like our feet really might get cold. I am sending you a skein of sock yarn dyed right here in the heart of Texas, where at this very moment it is 70 degrees and I am wearing handknit wool socks.

Offspring No. 2: Like Anonymous and Weber, you need to find a reliable source for answers to your questions. Remember, I am the one who told you that Thanksgiving was always on Thursday because they both began with "TH". There actually is a book that speaks to your question, Did Adam & Eve Have Belly Buttons? and 199 other questions from Catholic teenagers, by Matthew J. Pinto. Because you are a good little Episcopalian, you can take with a grain of salt all the stuff on the pope and the dogma of the Catholic Church. Altough, as you are about to be confirmed, you might be thankful to be an Episcopalian rather than a Catholic.

If all of you would send an email with your mailing information to me at, I will get your goodies in the mail.

Thanks again for playing!
