****This is a sticky post. Scroll down for new stuff, if there is any . . . ***
Well, I've gone and done it. I've added myself to the increasingly ginormous list of bloggers participating in the big Fall, Y'All! giveaway hosted by Shannon from Rocks in my Dryer. This is shaping up to be tons of fun, my friends, and if you haven't heard about it, you can head over here to check out all of the details.
This whole idea is like one giant swap meet, except we are swapping fabulous new treasures instead of old blenders or macrame plant hangers. In other words, I've been sucked right in. There are over three hundred participants right now -- that's three hundred people who are giving away really cool things! Do yourself a favor and try to win something.
I am giving away a copy of an awesome new CD; Raising Sand by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. Shhh, don't tell Rob, but I bought it for him as a welcome home gift, and I couldn't stop myself from listening to it. It has become an addiction. Frankly, I think he'll appreciate the fact that I love him so much that I wanted to make sure he was not getting a dud CD as a welcome home gift, don't you?
Yes, it's the same Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin fame. And yes, it's also the same Alison Krauss of country and bluegrass fame. Sounds like an odd mix, right? I thought so too, until I heard it. I'm telling you that it's magical, almost haunting. It's folksy and bluesy and gospel and rockabilly, and I am wearing out the repeat feature of my CD player, my friends. You can go here to listen to some of it, but I know you will get hooked and you will be forced to come back here to try and win it. And if you can listen to the last track while thinking of a loved one and not tear up a little, then you might be a cyborg. All I'm saying is that the autoharp is an instrument that sounds like a heart breaking, so consider yourself warned!
To enter this contest, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. This one right here. Any comment will do, since I will be drawing a winner at random, but feel free to tell me that my hair looks nice. Especially since it doesn't.
I will leave this post at the top of the page until Saturday, November 3rd, and I will announce the winner on Sunday, November 4th. This drawing is open to any commenter in the US, Canada, or those at an APO/FPO address (you know my soft spot for the military). You do not have to have a blog to win, so all commenters have an equal chance.
Good luck, my friends -- and I promise not to open the winner's copy as well!
