Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
I received five more birthday cards for Margaret (my former mother-in-law who's turning 80). Thank you!
For those of you who haven't heard about it yet, although I don't know how that could be possible with the way I run my mouth and tap at my laptop, I want to send Margaret 80 cards from all over the world. You get 10 entries in my giveaway for sending a card.
Prizes are three books, two Amazon gift cards, one t-shirt, and a partridge in a pear tree. Or maybe $150 worth of editing by The Queen of Grammar (dat's me).
To send a card for Margaret, please use this address:
PO Box 61371
Jacksonville FL 32236
Today's new card-givers are Sue in Australia and my oldest sister. I'm not telling you where she lives, but it starts with a T and she says y'all. Super-duper card-givers are Inger, who sent a SECOND card, and Shelly, who sent a SECOND and a THIRD card. God bless you all.
Okay, now let's figure out how many cards we have and how many more we need to get to 80.
Yesterday we had 34 cards, so we needed 46 more. Now we have five more, for a total of 39 cards. Consider the sine and have a tangent. That means we need 41 more cards. I'm counting on you, but don't worry if we don't get to 80 by the end of the giveaway. I will walk the streets, which I do anyway, and accost strangers, forcing them to sign cards.
As of this moment, you have five days and two hours to enter my giveaway. If you don't want to enter the giveaway, you still are allowed to send cards.
Infinities of love,
P.S. I hope you'll visit the ab fab author Nicki Elson at Nicki Elson's Not So Deep Thoughts. She's added my rafflecopter to her blog and if you tell her you sent a birthday card to me for my mother-in-law, Nicki will give you a free digital copy of her short story that involves three octogenarians. No doubt, antics ensue.
