Topic: And the Untraditional Traditional Biscotti Winner Is... (11 msgs / 207 lines)
1) From: Lynne
The time drew near (actually, in true Lynne-Fashion, it drew past... late as
always..). The names were printed out, (I carefully made each entry only two
lines wide, so there would be no discrepancy w/different size entries). Ray
Charles and Nina Simone sang "Baby It's Cold Outside" as I cut each entry
into a rectangle wicker basket.
Emma was curled up on my pillow (her favorite spot.. pft.. ptuwee.. dog fur
covered pillow..) Sammy rested peacefully, motionless with his little eyes
staring out to me, as Renee Olstead sang "Someone to Watch Over Me." I sat
in front of my computer, scissors in hand, basket on lap.
Shiloh napped on the floor.
I took the names & crushed each into a ball. Shiloh got up and left the
room. (Renee Olstead asked, "Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby." Hmm.)
Then I shook all the names in the basket, and told Emma & Sammy that they
had a very important job ahead of them. They sat up, thrilled with the
opportunity to be of service. I cleared the dog-blanket away, and tossed the
names on the floor.
Sammy was the first to touch one entry with his nose. I picked that one up -
but then Emma did the same, only a second later. (They both seemed a bit
disappointed that these were not smeared with peanut butter, but I reassured
them that they were providing a valuable service, just the same. They seemed
to think that peanut butter would have made it all the more valuable.)
So - since we had offers from several people to pay for the shipping, and I
decided that we will have two winners. Heck, I'm the boss of myself (no, no,
in actuality, my dogs are the boss of me, but let me pretend for a few
minutes) so - we have two winners!
*drum roll *
(and Renee Olstead sings, "A Sunday Kind of Love." Honestly, I didn't plan
this.)
the winners are:
(as I put on two pairs of glasses so I can read the names..)
Bill Morgan
and
Bonnie Polkinghorn
(sound effects: applause in the background)
Congratulations, Bill & Bonnie - I should be mailing out your packages in a
day or two (or three).

Wow!  And here I thought the Holidays were over.
I have to go back to work tomorrow after a couple of weeks off (one of the
things I get from a .edu job instead of a real salary) so this really
brightens a glum evening.
Thank you so much, Lynne.
Best wishes,
Bill

8) From: Bonnie Polkinghorn
Oh my goodness, I couldn't believe my eyes!  Thank you so much Lynne.  I am
so behind in reading the list, my brother got married at my house on Sat.
and I have been a very busy person.
I did manage to roast a bunch of coffee for the wedding and hopefully have a
convert in the lurks.  One of the guests seems very interested in home
roasting.  A full report at a later date.
I absolutely love biscotti and can't wait to receive your generous gift!
Please give a nice sritch behind the ears to Sammy and Emma.
I will leave you with the thoughts of Popcicle Toes by Michael Franks, I
don't know why, it popped into my head after reading your original post.
Happy New Year and have a wonderful day.
Bonnie P.

Popsicle Toes is one of those sultry love songs, you can imagine!  Michael
Franks wrote it and sings it but Dianna Krall's rendition is more popular, I
think.
It's quite cold in my office today, I'm ready to break out my thermos, my
mind isn't working 100%, but it is a Guatemalan.
