Winner named!
Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Yesterday was not a good day. One of the little Yorkies I loved tangled with a logging truck and lost. I watched it happen and there wasn’t a thing I could do to stop it. She slipped out of the fence and ran for it. This morning I’m still down. Such a sweet little thing, but my only consolation was that she didn’t suffer.

I’m back at the red-headed hellion’s house for the next few days, and since she’s on dial-up, I limit my access to Internet. Her menagerie is a lot of work. The chickens are the easy part, if I can manage to dodge the rooster—he’s just plain evil.

I did get a short story out the door yesterday before I left. Cross your fingers it made the cut! Thanks to Brandy and Heather who read it to make sure it didn’t suck too badly. Today, I’ll keep my laptop on my lap (imagine that) and work while I keep the 1-year-old away from the light sockets.

Between this blog, the After Midnight blog and Facebook, there were 43 entries in yesterday’s contest! So without further ado (another of those phrases I don’t understand), the winner (by random number generator) is…Christiana Toups! Christiana, email me!!

    I’m so sorry about your little dog …I get entirely too close to my animals. A kid in my neighborhood used to fly down our dirt road and he hit my sweet Trouble cat. I got so mad I took a pick ax to the road and dug a huge ditch so he’d bottom out.
    My husband went back and filled it in …

    So sorry about the puppers. No suffering is a good thing.

    We’re still in the packing phase and not around much. Just sit and wait until the load everything up tomorrow.

    Congrats to Christiana on the win.
