It's President's Day, which is perfect for announcing the winners for the Swept Away Valentine's Blog Hop. After a cup of coffee to clear my head, my poodle and I entered the comments to my Valentine giveaway post and drew numbers at random. With no further ado, the poodle thumps her tail and the winners are:
$10 Amazon gift card... Carol L.
Copy of one of my ebooks... Sue Adams
Congratulations, winners! I'll be sending you emails to confirm your addresses and send your prizes.
And now, in honor of President's Day, here's a nod to Calvin Coolidge (1923-1929).
"Silent Cal" may not have been our most memorable leader but he will always be remembered for his anecdotal exchange with the marvelous writer, Dorothy Parker. Parker, who was seated next to him at a dinner, said, "Mr. Coolidge, I've made a bet against a fellow who said it was impossible to get more than two words out of you." His famous reply: "You lose."
