Winner of the Blog Contest


So after a morning of beautiful sunshine, ignoring all of my emails (except for yours Dave,)  terrible wind, excellent chocolate at the new bakery down the street from me and a good bike ride on my favourite trail, I am going to grow up now and actually post. I had so many lovely entries that I actually had to email and poll some of my readers to help me choose a winner. So, without further ado–The winner of the blog contest and the proud new owner of a spiffy $25 gift card is

Mr. John Howell over at

  1. Sometimes, I’m the first one at the scene, before the revelers arrive.

    I love queekant. I will find myself using it in the future, as I love onomatopoeia sound effecty words.

    Used in another sentence: Inspector Clouseau crept across the mansion’s empty courtyard. His shoes went queekant, queekant, queekant.
