For What It's Worth

Sunday Ramblings.....

Here's my little buddy - 15 year old Waldo. He's staying with me for a few weeks while his dad is on a road trip. And yes, I do go around saying "Where's Waldo?"

The Wrap up!!

First off! HUGE... HUGE congratulations to Jeri Smith-Ready and the girls from Ficticious Delcious for the shocking...stunning....last minute victory of Zacahry - better known as "Team Kilt" in the YA Crush Tournament. They've been working their kilts off throughout the tournament and we have one last epic battle to go!

I'm already planning my incentive prizes For Wednesday. So get ready Team Kilters! This is going to be the hardest battle yet!

Our opponent will be either Ash from Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series or Jace Wayland from Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instrument series. THE Jace. Nuff said.

Jace is difficult - if not impossible to beat and Ash - well if he beats Jace, then he pulled off an amazing upset and will be tough to beat. Be ready Zach fans and come back here Wednesday for some VERY cool prizes!

OK - back to the regularly scheduled wrap up:
