A 10th Anniversary Gift-a-Way

Gentle Friends... well, it's been 10 years this month...May 9th of 2007 to be exact ...


...that I've been posting to this Blog.  I've posted about the good, the bad and even the ugly sometimes, but it's been entertaining I hope for the most part.  I was thinking over the weekend that to celebrate I should have a Gift-a-way thing and have the hag Claw pull a winner from the BoD (Bowl of Destiny)... I've not done one in so long I can't even remember when......

So, on Tuesday, May 9th, I'll have the Hag Claw work it's majic.  To enter the Gift-a-way all you need do is leave a comment on this Post Only - by 4:00 pm PST May 8th.  In the comment should be info with a way for me to contact you if your name is drawn.  If you're a No Reply comment type that's alright, but please make sure to leave an email address or some other contact information.  - I'll let the winner know on Wednesday, May 10th.

UPDATE... I settled on what I would like to do for my anniversary...
the 10th Anniversary GIft-a-way gift will be in two parts...the first part will be a 
$25 Gift certificate from 123 Stitch, 
and the 2nd part will be some Treats from San Francisco....

Is there any of your puppies that can't read? If so, that's the one I want to do the drawing. Now, I regret saying "kitties, now we're talking" on another post. That may have sealed my fate with all of your puppies! lol. And you have such nice giveaways!


Paula

P.S. Please tell the doggies how pretty they look for me today.

Holy smokes, Edgar! It doesn't seem possible you've been doing this for 10 years! Congratulations!

Vicki said...

Edgar, I can't remember how or when I found your blog, but it has been one of my favorites for a long time. All of your posts are fun to read from the adventures of the who-hounds to the culinary opportunities in SF to the gorgeous photos you take of your jaunts around town, the country and the world to your beautiful stitching. You and Rico are two talented, creative, generous (I LOVE the Fall wreath!) guys and I appreciate the opportunity to celebrate you. Congratulations on ten years of blogging, I can't wait to read the next ten years! (Sounds like an awesome giveaway, eager to see who wins, however I'm going to pass this time)
