Karen check your mail!

All the names were placed in the bowl...

And one was chosen...

The book goes to Karen@BakingInATornado! 

I love her blog and have been a follower for some time now.

So this morning, I popped over to read her latest post and I almost fell to the floor laughing.  Is this a coincidence?  That she would write a post about her trials and tribulations with her mail carrier?  I thought I was reliving a scene from the movie "Funny Farm" with Chevy Chase.  Remember their crazy mailman?  He would try to run them down and then throw their mail out his window and it would fly everywhere! Makes me laugh each time I think about that movie.

So I read her post again, and I am still laughing. And I will probably laugh throughout my day. Sorry Karen!  How did you know I woke up tired of this Missouri Flu and was dreading my day of blowing my nose and trying to breathe. 

How did you know I needed to laugh,
and laugh hard, this morning?

You have probably heard about it on the news.  Thehubs and I are calling it the "Missouri flu" but it's official name is EV-D68. I am in my 5th week of it and the hubs is in his 4th week. After steroids and anti-biotics, we are still blowing our noses and dealing with sinus pressure behind our eyes. It is just what the news says it is, a bad summer cold that won't go away. 

So Karen, the book is yours!

Thank you to everyone who read and commented on my last post. Thank you to Revelle Books and Holly Gerth for the book.  It is one of my favorites and is available in hard back and Kindle versions at Amazon.com. I signed up for emails at www.holleygerth.com and am enjoying her posts.

Thanks for stopping by!
