Give Away Drawing Winner

Thank you all for your lovely comments on our Blogoversary!

It means a great deal to me. It's lonely sometimes writing in this little room. Not lonely in that I always have a hound to hug at the ready. Lonely in that I'm writing this book and little stories and sometimes I wonder who the heck I think I am!!!

That's why your lovely, kind words made me smile a bit.

So. It was time to do the drawing for the give away of Mama Pajama Tells A Story. I asked Delia if she would oversee the procedure, and testify that it was on the up and up.

Hmmmm. I'll take that as a NO.

Then I asked Swede William. Due to Lindy Loo's seriously seductive state, I thought maybe he could use a distraction.

I'm pretty sure he said, "Oh yes, Dear Servant. I'd just LOVE to help out any way I can!"

As you can see, comment # 24 was the winner! Comment # 24 was:

I love your blog and check every day for new stories. I've laughed and cried with you, and now feel we're practically related! Thanks for sharing your whippets with us.

This is fun! I don't know Carolyn in Tulsa and I didn't know you were reading!!! Cool beans! So please email me your address and how you would like me to sign the book and I'll get it on it's way to you!

Thank you all again for hanging in there with me this year. Sunday was my sister Martha's birthday. Her doctors just smile and shake their heads. No one dreamed she would celebrate this birthday. But she did, and she did in her own home. She is my hero. She is facing some tough, tough concepts: her oncologist has told her there will be no further treatment. My job - as I see it - is (1) to listen to her (really listen) and (2) to make her laugh. So far I've been able to do both, with the help of the whippets. The story of William to the Rescue When I Misplaced Lindy Loo made her snort.

  1. Whether one is spiritual or not, I see blogging as a kind of at home ministry. Your stories are definitely good for the soul and the funny bone. A double dose of healing therapies.

  2. Your plate is truly full and we are the one's who will be gaining from it.

  3. Happy Birthday to Martha. and thanks to Queenmothermamaw for the words of wisdom. Had not thought about blogging as ministry. Love the concept.

  4. Like your pretty blue shirt Delia. The poor guy does look kind of sad all cuddled in his bed.
    We bet #24 will enjoy the book.

  6. I'm glad that Martha had a good birthday celebration and after long last was able to have it in her own home. Your stories not only help keep her spirits up, they do the same with the rest of us.


  7. Happy Birthday Martha...it's such a blessing to have a sister.
    Congrats to Carolyn...of course...once you read it you'll be purchasing them as gifts...and no Patience did not pay me to say that. Enjoy.

  8. Happy belated birthday to your sis. You can remind her that she is entitled to a birthday week this year.

    Gentle hugs,


  9. The spelling of my prior post must indicate that there is a bit of Swede William's heritage in with the Irish.... It just slipped out.


  10. Happy Birthday. Your photos are spot on. I love them.

  11. Happy Birthday to Martha, what a fighter. happy Blogoversary.

  12. Congratulations to Carolyn in Tulsa. We know she's in for a treat. We'll reread your book when we visit our aunt in Florida. She's got a copy on her coffee table, in a prominent position.

    We're a little afraid to mention Martha ... that's how far behind we've fallen ... but we are THRILLED to learn she spent her birthday at home. An amazing woman, she is. Just like you.
