For the second day in a row I got to go out to the gem show and find myself a birthday present.
April and Seth took me out to breakfast and then the three of us went back to the segment of the gem show that is housed at Tucson Electric Park.(baseball stadium) We wandered around looking at goodies for about an hour.
The ring to the left is what I picked out. I am having to fight Tessie off with a big stick for this one. See the little loop at the end of the ring? That's a catch that fits over the little ball to keep the secret compartment closed. It's almost as good as a secret decoder ring. Actually, I like it better.
Tessie also likes it. She seems to think that it would be a good place to hide ingredients for spells.
As usual,(I am finally catching on to the system.)I brought her something to keep her happy. This time she got a Peruvian bunny. She seems to have a thing for bunnies.
It also helped that I replenished my supply of #15 seed beads with some new colors. She has some of them ear marked for bottle netting.
Now to the important business. I promised a drawing today. Walter was out playing golf, so I had to find an impartial substitute to draw the name of a winner of the followers prize.
I turned to the commander of the house. He is the most impartial being around here. He is pretty much impartial to everything but food. That's Mookie.
I wrote the names of all of the people that made a comment on the blog the other day and folded the papers so that he couldn't peek. Then I told him to put his nose on the one that he wanted to pick. He shuffled them well with his paws then laid down on them. Here you see him putting his nose down on the chosen one.....And the winner is.......Kathi of Beautiful Mini Blessings http://beautifulminiblessings.blogspot.com/ !
Kathi, if you will e mail me with your snail mail addy, we will make arrangements to get your surprise to you ASAP.
Mookie says, "Congratulations!"
Tessie says, "But I wanted that!"
Sorry Tessie, Mookie didn't choose you.
See you tomorrow.
