Golden TrophyI won! I won! I won!

I really thought I had posted this already but I just found it while I was looking through my drafts for something to post (I’m not in much of a writing mood today).   A few weeks ago Gary held a contest.  He had an especially good day in terms of the amount of hits his blog received and he invited his readers to guess how many visits he got.  Unbelievably – I had the closest guess! 

I’m not a good guesser.  In fact I’m one of those people who says “I never win anything”.  Well thanks to Gary that is no longer true. 

Winner of the contest will not only win bragging rights but will also receive a virtual trophy to post on your real blog. The trophy could also be used as a virtual spittoon or a virtual vase for some beautiful virtual flowers or something. Whatever you want to do with it.

Golden Trophy

Needless to say, the virtual spittoon part cracked me up.  It’s beautiful isn’t it?  I’m filling it with virtual candy so my readers can have a virtual treat when you stop by for a visit.  Thanks again Gary!  Dear readers, have you won any contests?  What did you get?

Edited to add:  There’s a new contest at Gary’s.  Go check it out.  You could be the next big winner!

      Good idea. Since it’s virtual and cost is not an issue, I want one of those modern gas fireplaces where the flames come out of decorative broken glass. It should have a chunky dark wood mantle and travertine lined with decorative glass tiles.

    Congratulations Era. I read the spittoon part & decided to try it. Now I have to clean my monitor. I missed the “virtual” bit.
