Curt's Best Shots Slideshow

THE WEDNESDAY EVENING POST FOR MAY 8, 2013

Hey All!


Well, it has been quite a week for news hasn't it???  The Jodi Arias verdict, the new Benghazi hearings, and the 3 found missing women.  What an interesting week of developments.  What a fascinating world we live in.

And speaking of news. . . how about the winner of my 5 Year Blogaversary Blog Candy!?!?!

Here is the prize package to refresh your memory:
There was actually a total of 56 comments, however one person asked not to be in the drawing, one person entered twice, one was my best friend and not eligible, and one was an anonymous comment who did not leave a name in the comment.  So, there was a total of 52 valid entries into the drawing.  I was going to use Random.Org to come up with a number, but that is too boring.  So I wrote all of the valid entry names on strips of paper, wadded each up and threw them on the floor.  I then gave Shotsy the command "Bring!" I use this command if I have dropped something on the floor for him to pick it up and give it to me (he would have made a great service dog!).  Shotsy looked at all the paper balls and looked back at me like "Daddy!  How am I going to bring all of those to you???"  LOL  Bless his sweet heart.  So I told him "Bring!" again, and he walked over to the pieces and picked one up and handed it to me.  How random was that, huh???  I wish I had thought to video it, that would have been a great video!

And ironically, he picked Shirley (Glittered Paws)!  LOL  How fun is that!?!  CONGRATULATIONS SHIRLEY!!!  Please email me with a verification of your address so I can mail you your prize!

I'm sorry you all couldn't have won a prize. . .I just wish I was really rich so I could shower you all with grand prizes. . .

Thanks for all of your congrats, well wishes, and sweet comments.  They mean so much to me!

'Til next week!

Hugs,

Curt

Haha...thats hilarious!! Congrats to the lucky winner!!! I once saw where a cat had picked the winning lottery ticket numbers, by the owner laying all the numbers down and the cat walked on the numbers, so I gave it a shot, but my lazy fat cat layed down on all the numbers and had about 20 stuck to her static fur.....just my luck!! (none)...lol...have a nice week and maybe see ya next week...eh???
