Winner & TACOS

Hello Friends.

The moment you have been waiting for.  Some lucky pup or kit kat will win a signed copy of Lydia Criss Mays book "THE LISTENING ME".   Not just a copy of this wonderful book butt a SIGNED copy.  Are we ready?
OK here is how this works.  MOM wrote down all the names on that paper under those sticks.  Then she assigned a number to each name. 
Then she wrote a number on each stick.
Like this.
Here's how I will pick a winner.  MOM will toss the sticks and I will grab one and we will have a winner.
"I'm ready MOM, let them fly."
As you can see I dove right in.
This is harder than I thought.  So many sticks and MOM says I can only pick one.
Butt I found one.  Yep this is the one.
"What do you mean I have to give you the stick back?!"
"Goose we have to see who won.  Give me the stick."
"Grrrrr if I grrrive it backkkk can I grrrrrrr have it laterrrrrrrr?"
"Yes, yes.  Soon as we see what number is on the stick."

#25 is our winner.  And that mean that Jazzi is our WINNER!!!  Wooooo Wooooo.  Jazzi you be looking in your mail box cuz you just got yourself a signed copy of "The Listening Me."
And speaking of Jazzi you know what today is?  It's Taco Day, which happens to be sponsored by our TACO loving friend Jazzi.  "Hey MOM where is my taco?"
"Seriously MOM, a stick taco?"  Where's the buffalo?  Where is the green leafy stuff?  Where is the sour cream?  Where is the CHEESE?  
Really?  A cheese and stick taco? 

Hey it works for me.  Bon Appetit.  Nom nom nom. 
Congrats Jazzi for being our winner and thanks for sponsoring TACO DAY!!!    Buuuuuurrrrrrrrp.  Oops excuse me.
Hey Jazzi we have your address from the Christmas card list, is that still a good one?


  1. Congrats to you Jazzi. Good contest Goose. Wish My Vickie had been online yesterday so we could enter. Ah well, maybe you'll let us read your copy.

  2. Oh Goose that was a perfect way for you to pick a winner! What a great idea. Congrats to Jazzi! Um...we think your mom needs a cookbook so she can rustle you up a proper taco. Sticks are nice to gnaw on but real tacos have MEAT in them!
