Giveaway, Halloween and Suka
Over the years, Jan has often said that God has used us or TWCB (Those Who Came Before) to teach and encourage her. She used to write her own spiritual-related stories and we were often embarrassed by Miss Tattle Tail ... er Tale. So Jan was pleased to receive a copy of this book a few weeks ago and we are thrilled to have an opportunity to give another copy away. If you love animals and enjoy a daily devotional, you will enjoy this book. If it doesn't interest you, perhaps you know someone it would. And it would make a great Christmas or other occasion gift.
You can get a look into the book and read some sample devotions on Amacon com. At Amazon, above the book on the left, click on "Click to Look Inside."
We HATE those "giveaways" where the blogger makes readers jump through hoops to enter, using raptocopter or whatever it is, so you have to leave a comment, like their facebook page, follow them on twitter and tweet about them, do a blog post, bake a souffle, buy a horse trailer, subscribe to their blog posts, visit the shop and write an essay on which product you like best - you get the idea. We don't have that kind of time. Occasionally we might leave a comment, but that's it.
We think a giveaway should be just that, a giveaway. So we are going to do one. Of course, if you'd like to subscribe to our blog posts, follow us on twitter, do a blog post telling everyone how wonderful but humble we are, and bake us a tuna souffle or a salmon nip cake with real whipped cream icing, we will kiss your paws with joy. But those are not requirements.
If you would like to participate. just leave us a comment saying you'd like to win the book. Be sure to leave some way we can contact you, such as a link to your own web blog or an email address, should you win. Because of postal rates, since we will be mailing the book to the winner, we will need to restrict entries to the US only.
You do not need to be a pet blogger to enter. This is open to anyone who would like a copy of Paws to Reflect devotions.
Entries will be accepted through Saturday, November 3 at 11:59 PM EST. The winner will be announced on Monday, November 5.
Don't forget to vote for your favorite Halloween Real and Photoshopped contest entry (one vote for each). Voting ends at midnight tonight. So go by the Tabby Cat Club and cast your vote. (A reminder, if you voted Friday, please go back and re-vote. The polls went berserk and kept dropping the votes, so voting had to be changed to comments and was extended this extra day.
Suka's Just Sayin' blog.
We think we covered everything. Jan is exasperated. She cut tree limbs over the weekend and we had winds last night that blew them every which way. She had to fetch and carry, then beat them down with a rake to make them behave. A while ago she found them all over the place again. Some even blew across the yard and into our pen.
So if you'll excuse us, Jan needs to get cracking on hanging a blanket over the window with the ac unit before those branches blow inside. Okay, the leaks aren't quite that big but the wind blowing in is sure cold. And you know how klutzy she is, so we're going to have to go snoopervise.
The cold and wind are an annoyance to us, but we are concerned and praying for those northeast of us who are / will be getting hard hit by Hurricane Sandy. Be safe!
