What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

I've got a crummy job. It don't pay near enough to buy the things it takes...

Sometimes I'm a big goof. I saw Todd start up his contest and forgot to give a shout out to it. We shall rectify this situation (said with a German accent).

Hey look, Todd Wheeler has started up his summer reading contest and lassoed a sponsor. Good on you, Todd. This year's charity is the Children's Literacy Foundation. Considering in my own state the Governor and Legislature are cutting library funding like it was the new crack, I wholly support this contest.

This year I'm not eligible for prizes having been a previous winner. BUt I'm sure you all qualify. Read a book, get a chance at spiffy prizes (Random Michelle won the first week) and make Todd and Bear Pond Books fork over the dough and books. What could be easier and more fun. And you know you're going to read books anyway.

What? Of course you're eligible for prizes. We need you more this year than ever before!

Although, if I reach into the hat for the Grand Prize and pull out your name for the third straight year, the shock of the statistical anomaly might cause my hand to spasm, shaking loose the slip of paper and requiring me to reach back in to pick a name.

Well, I thought we had agreed that I shouldn't make myself eligible this year. But, hey, you know, I'm flexible.

Thanks for the reminder! I'll credit you in my post.

Glad I could be of help, Camille.
