JOANNE KIGGINS!! from WRITING AFTER DARK! woo-hoo!!!

a second drawing--

MARY LOUISA!! from YES I DO MIND!

(annefrasier@comcast.net)

for those of you who didn't win, i'm thinking about keeping the names and having a DVD drawing every monday. new names can always be added. i'm also open to drawing ideas and suggestions!

oh, and the winning location?

i found this interesting and funny. i know several people who live in Savannah and near Savannah, so i deliberately didn't tell them about the contest. Bek from Georgia dropped in, but she surprised me by voting for Tampa.

top location: SAVANNAH

second: TAMPA

Wow, sounds like a great place, Savannah! So this may happen in the summer, right? Or was that winter? Ugh, I don't remember! ;D

Savannah is beautiful. Almost got a job near there. A small town named Jesup. Kinda glad didn't end up working there. Northern boy like me in an old papermill southern town...yeah.

Can't skip a rock without hitting a church. No thanks...

I've been to Savannah several times. It's a nice town with a lot of history.
Congratulations to Joanne and Mary Louisa! :)

Mary Louisa said...

I'm all verklempt! (sp)

THANKS, Anne!! And enjoy your next winter down south. We will expect weekly reports from Our Woman in Savannah.

kelly, the moving truck is pulling up as we speak!

winter. i would go in the winter. :D summer in savannah can be pretty nasty.

emeraldcite: oooh, the papermill. yes. that place is nasty! i've heard emissions used to eat paint right off cars. people swear that's true.

but it is beautiful -- i agree, jeff. i have a love/hate thing going with savannah. you have this absolutely beautiful and amazing place, but along with it comes high crime, racial hostility, homelessness -- and that damn papermill!!

mary l: the drawing was fun! congratulations!

Tribe said...

Savannah? Over Detroit?!? Surely, you jest...I demand a recount!

Shesawriter said...

The voting was rigged. LOL!

Tanya

Ps. BOOK TRAILER. BOOK TRAILER. BOOK TRAILER. BOOK TRAILER. BOOK TRAILER.

anne frasier said...

tribe -- dammit!! i completely forgot to list detroit in the results. damn damn. i'd toyed with the idea of putting it as number 1 and leaving it up for a least a few hours. :D

sorry to say it didn't have a single vote. :(

tanya, that is funny as hell. :D i love it.

Anne, I'm not making a pass at you... okay, maybe I am, but either way, I reserve the right to take you to your first Savannah Sand Gnats game. Single A baseball in a tiny, ancient brick ballpark, an experience as American as, well, baseball.

If you haven't read The Book you must do so before you move.

anne frasier said...

mark, i always hear people talking about sand gnat games. nobody mentioned the brick ballpark!
and yes, i read the book. loved it. i'm also a big fan of the movie even though a lot of people didn't like it. so what if it was slow and meandering. that's what i liked about it.

i just remembered my avatar is from bonaventure cemetery.

Tribe said...

Ya know, some folks in Dee-troit are gonna hear about this slight....the rest, well...I just don't wanna say...

Joanne D. Kiggins said...

Anne,
Savannah is beautiful. I'm sure you'll love it there. And...I can't believe I won the drawing. Woo Hoo! Thank you so much. Sent a response to your email just now.

anne frasier said...

tribe, hopefully they'll spot my alice cooper t-shirt and decide not to kill me.

joanne, congratulations! you should get the dvd and cd early next week. :)

Joanne D. Kiggins said...

Anne,
Thank you! They arrived on Tuesday. Guess what I'll be watching and listening to this evening?! Thanks again!
