And the winner is . . .

Gunnar and The Prof went down to the basement and did their complicated treat ritual again. Gunnar now looks stuffed to the gills with treats. And he has made his choice.

This week's winner of The Great Book Give-Away is Ellen!

Congratulations, Ellen! I hope you enjoy all six of the books that will be coming your way next week.

Please go to my website, click on the "contact Anne" label on the left hand sidebar and send me your mailing address. Then I can post your books.

Hope to hear from you by Wednesday. If not, I'll have Gunnar pick an alternate winner. Many thanks to everyone who commented this week and last. You were all in the drawing this week.

You will all be in next week's drawing as well. On Monday I'll announce the first of the books to be given away this coming week.

In the meantime The Prof and I are off to watch oldest grandson play in a basketball tournament this weekend.

And, of course, I have Seb and Neely to deal with, too. Right now we're looking for a transition. Sometimes those are easy. Sometimes sitting and staring at a blank page is the order of the day. I fear it's one of those days. Let's hope it's not one of them again tomorrow.

Oh, Kim, I've been doing that, too. Since we've been painting I've been trying to weed things out and throw things away. Got a long way to go. And still need to get to work on the book as well. But one more basketball game today! It's been fun.

Chris, I'm so glad you enjoyed Syd and Hugh's story. I, too, loved Pelican Cay. I need to do a blog about the 'real' Pelican Cay!

Christa, yes, the basketball was super. They lost their first game, but won the next two, so not bad at all. And lovely to get all the boys here at the same time. What a treat.
Thanks for asking.
