Return to Sender
Please pardon a second post today announcing the winners of this week’s blog theme contest. Andra and MTM renew their wedding vows in Vegas was the hidden theme. Cootchie Hooch and Las Vegas themed prizes are secured for the winner. Several honorable mentions get Las Vegas tinted goodies as well. I hope no winner stamps their package ‘Return to Sender.’
Lou Mello was the first reader to guess the theme. He had a slight advantage, because he was one of only four people who knew what we were doing in Vegas. I think he guessed the theme as a joke, not really sure where the week was headed. A deck of fabulous Las Vegas themed playing cards and a pair of loaded dice are en route to Lou.
Andrea Boccucci was the first reader to guess the Elvis theme behind the song titles. I hoped some of his gospel music would be less obviously Elvis, but I discounted how many diehard Elvis fans exist in all genres of his work. For her devotion to Elvis, Andrea will receive a deck of kitschy Las Vegas themed playing cards.
Robert Johnson at The Quotidian Hudson guessed the theme about five seconds after our winner, making him the true runner-up. Readers may recall Robert’s win during last month’s Christmas music extravaganza, one that required luck and multiple comments to be drawn from the hat. This week’s theme needed a little more skill. Robert wins a delightful set of Las Vegas themed playing cards.
Nancy Hatch at Spirit Lights the Way is the winner of this week’s contest. On Thursday, she logged onto the blog at just the right moment and scored. Though we did not spring the extra cash to have Elvis conduct our ceremony, it was our original intent. Nancy wins Cootchie Hooch, a deck of tacky Las Vegas themed playing cards and a pair of lucky dice used in a casino in Vegas. Congratulations, Nancy!
Thanks to everyone for reading and playing this week. Your presence made us feel like you were there in The Little White Chapel with us, and we couldn’t ask for a more eclectic, esteemed group of guests.
