I’m very pleased to be a winner in May’s Blogging for Books contest. Thank you Jay, Kim and Joshilyn Jackson for reading the entries and for choosing mine as a winner among a whole passel of great ones. Congratulations to the other winners. I read them all. I appreciate the honor and I’m humbled to be in such good company. Thank you also to all the readers who left such kind and gratifying comments.
I never won anything before except a bicycle a really long time ago. One time at the Saline County Fair I dropped my name into every little drawing fishbowl at the booth tent and 6 weeks later I got this call from a guy at the local Christian Radio station saying he had been trying and trying to find me to give me the bicycle I won. Christian Radio Station? What? I took the bike anyway.
That was back in 1981. 23 years later that guy was still trying to find me. As FG and I were getting to know each other he confided that long before he got his PhD, worked for Children’s Television Workshop, taught at Temple and started his own consulting firm he did the morning rush hour show on the local Christian Radio Station. That was an important part of his history that he felt good about and he hoped that didn’t mean I wouldn’t go out with him. I married him anyway.
