I DID it! The Big 200th post !
Now, if you've been paying attention, (and I'm sure you've been on pins and needles all week) I promised a giveaway for my 200th post...
And this is IT!
I never knew when I started this blogging stuff, that it would be so satisfying.
That I would meet so many warm and lovely and fantastic friends.
That it... and you, would come to mean so much to me.
But it has. And YOU have.
The state of my house and garden can attest to that... and you would think that with all the wonderful tips and ideas that you share, that I would be in better shape house-wise and garden-wise.
All those cleaning and cooking ideas and all those gardening tips... and here I spend more time reading and blogging, than I do actually using those tips.
But do I care? Nah...
It's the friendships formed, and the fellowship that we share, that has come to mean more than anything to me.
When I first started blogging, I just wanted to talk. You know... have a place to natter on and to get my thoughts down.
And to that end, I'm as happy as a clam.
Because I never shut up and I always have some weird ideas floating around in my brain and it does my heart good to share them.
It probably bores the heck out of you though.
But the bestest part, is meeting you all - and the friendships that I've made.
YOU have made this fun.
YOU have made it all worthwhile.
And even as my house and yard slowly sink into a bottomless pit of despair, I don't care.
I'm havin' too good of a time to quit now.
Thanks to you!
So I'll quit dribblin' on now... and get down to the reason why we're here.
I have stuff to give away.
And you want some of my stuff.
See how well I've come to know you?
Now all you have to do to have a chance to win some of my stuff, is to leave me a comment.
And you'll go straight into the draw to win some fantastic prizes.
The prize is open to anyone... and it will be tailored especially to you.
All you have to do is leave a comment in the next 3 days... and at the end of those 3 days, the Old Guy will don his "I Feel Lucky" underpants... and draw a random name out of the hat or bowl... or whatever is handiest. Just pray it isn't the cat box.
Pictures will be taken, I assure you.
Which is why you should pray that it isn't the cat box.
The Old Guy has been doing sit-ups and tummy crunches all week, and he promises to wear his lucky jocks for y'all, but I can't pin him down as to what part of his body he'll be wearing them on.
He's being coy ...and it doesn't suit him at all.
The jocks do though, so get your smelling salts handy.
Now, just to make this fair to all, it's Monday June 8th here in Australia, and since dates and times vary throughout the world, get your comments in as soon as possible!!
The draw will take place on the 11th of June, so get busy leaving those comments.
And oh... you'll get extra bonus points for sucking up.
Well, not really, but I do love me some sucking up...
I'm just sayin'.
