The Winner of My 100th Post Celebration is . . . .

already selected. But first I want to tell you what a headache it was to pick a winner! If you remember, my sweet dog Josey was supposed to pick the winner out of her dog dish. So I carefully cut all the entries and folded them so they would all be the same size and placed them in her dish. Then I gave Josey a bath and combed her hair and put her prettiest bow in so she would look good in the picture I was going to take to post on today's announcement. Then I looked for my camera. And I looked some more. I couldn't find it. Apparently I loaned it to my sister this week and it is at her house. Oh well, we can still do this without pictures. So I proceeded to bring Josey to her dog dish to pick out the winner. Josey would not go near her dish. In fact she ran under my bed and hid. She will not come out. I am not getting this. She loves to be in the limelight and she LOVES paper. I thought this would be an easy task. So I coaxed her and bribed her with her favorite dried chicken treat. She came out long enough to grab her treat and then retreated under the bed again. Geesh....you would have thought I was asking her to kiss the cat or something! So anyway, I finally resorted to drawing the winning name out of the dog dish. Now I'm glad there was no camera! Anyway, I am happy to announce the winner of my 100th post celebration. She chose Today's Christian Woman magazine. And the winner is . . . . . . . drumroll please. . . . . . .

Karen from Over the Backyard Fence

Congratulations Karen!! This was a fun thing to do and thanks to all who entered their names and posted on their blogs about it. I'll have to think of something special for my 200th post and I'm thinking it won't be involving a certain little dog named Josey!

I love Karen! So happy she won. She will have fun choosing a good magaine that will help her do her valued job of wife and mother even better.

What a fun way to choose the name, Robin. I would have done something like used that automatic system on line. Eeek. I am not creative.

I just caught up on your Thankful Thursday and it made me cry! The nearly empty nest - for you; the closeness of your church - for me and your sweet sweet bloggers comment - for the whole circle of us. Sweet. And congratulations to your winner! How fun.
