A Tisket, A Tasket Day

Today is my day for the A Tisket, A Tasket, Put Romance in Your Basket contest. You're traveling to find one of those four treasured easter eggs hidden on some of the sites you'll visit. I'm supposed to entertain you and offer a prize, and I apologize for not posting sooner. The internet wouldn't let me on earlier and I spent my afternoon at Nashville's Tax Day Tea Party, I'm going to share some pictures with you and tell you what a wonderful time I had.

Other than getting tired from standing and feeling like my fingers were going to freeze off,the outing did me good. I never realized so many other people share my feelings. It was actually refreshing to stop griping at the TV and get out of the house and involve myself in something positive. Despite Homeland Security issuing warnings about these Tea Parties, the gathering was peaceful, respectful and inspiring. my sign might have been a tad disrespectful, but I'm very angry with our President for making us look weak and stupid during his recent tour. But the nice America I'm entitled to voice my opinion. Actually, I stole my sister's sign because mine looked like I wrote it with my left foot and I was humiliated to carry it. *lol*

The crowd kept growing and growing, with driver passing by and honking horns in support. The creative signs were the hit of the day and Gwenn and I spent a great deal of time reading them. We would have stayed till the finish if we hadn't turned to ice cubes. I'm happy I went.

So, with that said, I would like to offer a prize to anyone else who went to a Tea Party Today...or if you couldn't make one, send me an email and tell me why you wish you could have gone. A free download of any one of my novels to the first person who sends me a picture you took. You can email me at MizGing.

So, I guess it's time to give you the next url for tomorrow's website and contest. You're next stop is: Dayana Knight's Blog.

Remember, when you've visited the last site, make a list of where you found the eggs by pasting the urls to the website pages in an e-mail, then send the entry to Happyendings by midnight CST on May 1st, 2009. The winner will be randomly drawn and announced March 2nd at Skhye Moncrief's Blog.

Thanks for stopping by today, but I'm sorry to tell you that I have no egg for you... just a free download of a book of your choice (authored by me) if you send me a picture of the Tea Party you attended or tell me why you wish you could have gone to one.

It's time to stand up for change...and I can say I actually did. I joined millions of others today in trying to make a difference. Three cheers for me...the couch potato. *lol*
