Dear Mystery Person (and cd winners announced)

Poetry | Posted by Jannie on 21 October 2010 @ 5:55 PM 64 Comments


Dear Mystery Person,

when I mailed the 6 letters yesterday
I felt a little sad for the 7th yet unclaimed,


until golden trumpets blasted the doors
of doubt wide open, telling me and the stars
to choose you from a comment on this post,

enclose 7 photos,


and rejoice
in the gift
of you.


That was a little story in 55 words for His Highness, the G-Man.


If you post a 55, G-Man will read, comment… then BOOK you, Dano.

And the winners of my 6 cds from that give-away post, as chosen randomly by Kelly are…

1. Comment # 2 — Jeanne of Chronic Healing!
2. Comment # 3 — JoyChristin of Unfolding Your Path To Joy!
3. Comment # 27 — Hootin’ Anni!
4. Comment # 39 — Lynn of Good Things Happened!
5. Comment # 41 — Claudia of Splitter Gewitter!
6. Comment # 52 — Cloudia of Comfort Spiral
And, since we’re talking 7 today… how about a 7th cd!!
7. Comment # 54 — Davina of Shades of Crimson! (Davina will also get a big lollipop, as per Kelly’s “Grand Prize Winner” idea!!)

Winners, please e-mail me with your address, and Blue Bunny will mail your cd pronto!

I’ll give away 7 more cds sometime!

Don’t forget about the 6 poetry books give-away here on Nov. 1st! Open World-Wide!

And to reiterate, commenting on this post could win you that 7th Jannie letter! :)

    Nope, it’s not me with the long blond hair. Mine is a few shades darker, and curly.

    Hi Jannie, more great pictures. Those letters are beautiful. It’s so sad for the 7th one to feel so left out. I’d take it in and give it a fine home!

    Haven’t been around as much lately…vacationing in a warm place.

    Have a great weekend. :)

    Yes, your letters look divine, as does
    G-Man wearing the proper head
    attire befitting his royal status.
    Like many others who rallied to
    order the first Jannie CD, I keep
    mine in the car, and listen to it
    while running errands and logging
    in a road trip. Like many out here,
    I am waiting for the SECOND
    Jannie Funster CD, to be out soon!
    You had sent a lovely note with
    the CD, both the first copy and
    the second, and they are to be
    cherished too. Sometimes knowing
    your “actual” name is like having
    a treasure that one never sells;
    just sits in quiet moments and
    stares it; knowing how rare it is.

    Now, to the bath, and to find that clean shirt.

    Jannie said, 

    Hilary — you are AWESOME!!! But you already knew that, right?? The math book she works from is by Saxon, grades 4/5 in the same book. Now… when you eat your smarties, do you eat the red ones last?? :) Do you crunch them very slowly, or eat them very fast? :) Thanks for the link. I recognize Chase March from Barbara’s blog. You are very very welcome for the letter. I owed you one anyway!! Too much sun here still. Come and get it!! :0

    Hi Jannie!

    Phew… I made it. Just coming up for air after working like a fiend and now I’m so far behind in reading. Yay, I won another CD! Will give to a friend of mine and I *can’t* wait for the lollipop. That’s all mine.

    Love that pic of you in the hat. You look like a carefree country gal.
