Whale of a Good Time

Because Sunday was Easter, they celebrated her birthday Saturday afternoon.  He took She out for a drive.  They visited several of the most beautiful spots on the island. At one point they were on the north side above Lime Kiln Park. He took She there to look for whales (even though it is a bit early in the season).

She stood at the retaining wall taking in the vast expanse of blue water and blue sky before her. Even the Cascade Mountains were blue.

Blue. Blue. Blue. Blue. Blue.

She said, “I don’t see any whales — so you’re about to hear one!”

He said, “Don’t be silly. Of course you can’t see Wales. This isn’t even the right ocean!”

She had a very happy birthday, even if she did spend it with a smart-alec.

Bling Fling ~ Winner!

Four people entered guesses and all of them had the designer — Blu Bijoux — and the item — bangle bracelets — correct.   I know this contest was super easy because the first correct guess came in last Wednesday (I asked her to resend her guess at the correct time).  I don’t know why more of you didn’t play because the prize is gorgeous!

15 bangle bracelets in a seashell

These 15 bangle bracelets from Max & Chloe are the prize. The sea shell is Amoeba’s and we are keeping it. Believe it or not, it’s a horn and he can play it. He learned in Hawaii.

However, you aren’t interested in shells, you want to know who won!  The contestants were:

  1. Church Lady, 9:21 a.m. PDST
  2. Khyla A, 4:21 p.m. PDST
  3. Kelley (South Lakes Mom) 5:26 p.m. PDST
  4. Barbara, 9:23 p.m. PDST

And according to the Random Number Generator, #3 wins!  Congratulations South Lakes Mom!  You’ll have a brand new set of spangly, jangly, bangles to ring in the New Year!

Bling Fling Jewelry Giveaway ~ Make Your Guesses

Quilly is giving away a quality piece of jewelry and you want to win it!  The big day is here! Stack up your clues, jumble them all together and make your guesses, then brace yourself for the winning announcement!

You have slightly more than 24 hours in which to  EMAIL your final three guesses (you may list all three guesses in one email).  Contest closes at 5:00 p.m. Pacific on December 19th, 2010.

Your guesses must include 1.) what kind of item you believe I am giving away (earrings, necklace, bracelet, ring, anklet, etc.) and 2.) the designer’s brand name.

Those folks who have any one of their three guesses correct will get tossed in the hopper in the order of the time stamps on their emails and the random number generator will pick the winner.

In the event that no one guesses correctly, every one who emails me three guesses will be tossed in the hopper in the order of the time stamps on their emails and the random number generator will pick the winner.

Since Amoeba and I are hosting a humongous party on Sunday, the prize will be revealed and the winner will be announced Monday at noon. The package will be mailed Tuesday (December 21st, 2010).  I cannot guarantee arrival before Christmas, especially if the winner lives overseas.

I instigated this giveaway and purchased this jewelry item under my own initiative.  Contest void where taxed or prohibited.
