Lady Betty Orpington asked me to announce the winners of her Holiday Preparedness Care Package Giveaway. (She's busy doing chica things at the moment. After she pulled two names from the hat, she looked me square in the eye, and asked me to give a chica some privacy!)
First name pecked, and winner of Care Package #2: Beverly, of Tea Time and Roses. Congratulations Beverly!
Betty pecked a second winner, Rois, of Hrafinstaad. Rois Care Package #1 is all yours!
I read and enjoyed every comment. Betty was clucking happily all day... I know she liked the flattery, the sensible tips, the good humor. And I liked sharing a bit of fun with old friends and new friends. Thank you everyone for playing, and do come back... I am going to share blog-link-holiday love, later today!
Zoltar kept attacking my rain boots while I was consulting with Lady Betty. I am less concerned about his attempts to bring me down, than the chance that I may accidentally crush the little twerp.
I scoop him up, and give him regular doses of tough love. He actually likes the attention. But as he was particularly cocky this morning, I told him the story of Thanksgiving... turkey and all. I added that "our oven is broken, and I have no room for a big turkey on our grill, but that I could fit a smaller fowl..."
That settled him down.
