Texting With Mama -- And a Winner


When I was at Blogfest in July,
and we all discovered our cell phones would finally work...
on the beach at Gwynn's Island...
I called The Bird.
She actually chatted with her old mother for a few minutes.
She even asked who was there!
And when I said "Living on the Spit" is here!
The Bird wanted to know if I would bring her some barbecue....
Get it?
She thought it was a grill spit...
Not a spit of land.
I raised a good little Southern girl up here in the midst of all these Yankees.

So I asked the Bird to help choose the winner for our Get Happy Giveaway.
And I am happy to tell you all that our Marlene is the winnah!
Chelsea Handler is coming your way, my friend...
and when you read this and you're all happy?
I hope you'll send her on her merry way.

Can I tell you HOW much I need this book RIGHT now? Really, THIS book could not come at a better time!!! And, yes...I will definitely pass it along to the next person who God knows will need it. Can I use a highlighter to keynote certain parts I deem worthy?

Thank you very much and yes Daryl...I am close to being finished!!!

That is the funniest book I have read in a long time! Congrats to Marlene ~ be ready to spew forth liquid from your nose if you read it while drinking.

Mr. Snoots says I'm not allowed to text, so I guess I'll never learn how, LOL!

Congratulations Marlene! Now I think I have to buy that book... immediately!

Oh well, I tried. I am sure Marlene needed it more than me. But it was very nice of you to do this!
