"In the late 60's, I was divorced and a single mom. Needless to say, I was very short on money since my ex was not paying the child support. I entered a drawing for a CB Radio and won. Someone in the CB Club (my dad was a member) made me an offer to buy it. I sold it for $150 and thought I was rich. The money came at a time when I really needed it. It is great reading with you."--Bonnie M
"Oh, my! I'd forgotten the first thing I ever won--a year's supply of men's underwear! Woolco had a grand opening event in my town in the mid-1960's, and I had entered their prize drawing. I was just starting high school and was SOOO embarrassed to claim the prize, but my dad was grateful. Yes, I do enter your drawings occasionally and maybe I should do it more often--I might be luckier than that first time! Thanks as always for this priceless service."--Mary B.
"I won a lawn chair in a Woman's Club raffle in the small town where I was then living. My last name is Cazan. The headlines in the town newspaper the next day read, "Cazan Gets Chair."--Wilma
"I was one of those kids who filled out a bunch of forms at a local convenience store, and I won an Icee Van (the frozen drink from a machine), which was a go cart with a fiberglass van on the top. You had to climb in from the opening in the top of the van. Being the only girl with three older brothers, I can tell you they were jealous and always asking to drive it!"--Kristin I.
"I remember attending a school carnival when I was in 1st or 2nd grade. I was totally enthralled with the Cake Walk. While music played, contestants would walk around in a circle stepping on numbers that had been placed on the floor, until the music stopped. Then a number was drawn, and if you were standing on that number, you won! The prize was a choice of a cake from the cake table. This was awhile ago, so the cakes were all homemade, two and three-layers, beautifully decorated (at least to my young eyes). I just knew this was something I could win, so I used all my tickets, going round and round that circle. It took many turns, and the woman in charge really started to feel sorry for me (and may have cheated to help me win), but I still remember how excited I was when I finally won! I have no idea what cake I chose, but I do remember the thrill of (finally) having my number drawn. I haven't won much since, but I have clung to my Cake Walk victory my whole life."--Val
If you've never won anything, this could be your lucky day. But you have to enter right now. No hints about what it is, but you know me, so it will be fun. To enter, click here.
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
AUTHORBUZZ: Devoted (Fiction) by Lexi Blake
I envisioned my new book as a romantic, sexier version of those old Rock Hudson/Doris Day films I grew up loving. You know the type. Handsome and a little shady, the hero plays a game with the heart of gold heroine only to find himself head over heels in love and backed into a corner of his own making. Business can be war, but love's the ultimate prize. I hope you enjoy reading Flynn and Amy's sexy skirmish as much as I enjoyed writing it.
