Today after lunch Tony and I went to Kerrville to get groceries and to run a few errands. Our first stop was at Wolfmueller's Books to see Sandy and Jon and to also pick up the two Easy Soup Recipe cookbooks that I wanted to give to Ben, and the other copy to send to my mystery friend, who doesn't live in Texas and has no idea she's getting one.
After greetings, Jon told me that Mari had come in on Monday and had purchased two more of the super, soup cookbooks. "Here are the two we held back for you," Sandy says, as she hands me the books, so I could pay for them.
"We decide?" Sandy asked, as Jon kinda frowned and started rubbing his forehead.
"Yes, the four us could be the Official Judges for the contest and we could sign our names inside the cookbook, too! It'll be fun."
"But, what about Mari?" Tone asked. "She loves that cookbook, as much or more as y'all and you know she's a really great writer too."
"Not a problem, Tony. Even though I love Mari and count her as a dear friend, she'll be the only person who we won't allow to enter my contest," I quickly quipped, as we started laughing, again. "I bet she won't even care..."
We left Wolfmueller's a few minutes later when Sandy and Jon got busy checking out their customers and I have my fingers crossed that they will be Judges with T. and me.
THE EASY SOUP RECIPE CONTEST—STARTS NOW and Ends at Midnight on JANUARY 19TH—And It's FREE! All you must do, except for Mari, of course, because she has bought as many copies of this great cookbook as me, is to write in 50 words or less: "Why I Deserve To Win The Easy Soup Recipe cookbook!" and post it on my Comments section, located at the bottom of each new post. The winner will receive the signed by the Judges cookbook and I promise that I will personally mail it out on January 20, 2011! It will be fun!
P.S. I want to thank our good friend and neighbor, Charlie Cooper for coming out this morning to help Tony with his chores. We love y'all, Charlie and Ellen!
Y'all have a great evening!
