Post #800

It’s not that much of a milestone. I really shouldn’t be celebrating anything until post #1000. But I have this thing for numbers, especially if they’re even numbers, and even more so if they’re round like this one. So 800 tickles my fancy. Not to mention it’s coming up on the holiday season and I felt like doing something nice for my readers. Then Nika Dixon posted that blog post a while back about the Firefighters without Borders Calendar, and I found the Toronto Firefighters and voila, an idea for a prize.**Edited** since some of you haven’t seen my earlier posts on the calendar, the proceeds from the sale of the calendar benefit Toronto’s Princess Margaret Hospital, one of North America’s top 10 cancer hospitals.**

I decided to have a bit of fun with the contest – something to make you work a little harder to earn this prize.

Thanks to a suggestion by Gizmo Guy, Curly’s used his fantastic Photoshop abilities to adjust a photo I took when Blue Sue and I were visiting Fort Worth back in 2007. And so we’ve ended up with my first “Spot the Differences” challenge.

There are seven things different in the bottom photo compared to the top photo. I recommend you click on the pictures so they will be displayed in a very large format for easier viewing. You must find ALL seven items to be entered. Partial answers won’t qualify.

Once you’ve found all seven differences, EMAIL your answers to leah DOT braemel  and you’ll be entered in the Firefighter calendar contest.

Do NOT post your answers in the comments. I’ve turned on moderation, so your answers will be deleted and you will be disqualified.

I’m going to leave this contest open until December 10th.  The winner will be chosen from amongst those who have submitted the correct answers using Random.Org and announced on December 11th. If the winner has not contacted me within one week (by December 18th), I will redraw a new winner.

Good luck!

    Wow! That's tough. I got a couple and I'm still looking.

    Fun contest and a fabulous prize being offered.

    800 posts. Wow.

    All posted for YOU at Win a Book. Where we blew through 800 posts pretty fast. Go figure.

    It doesn't take away YOUR accomplishment. In fact, I'm sort of in awe of you! I don't think the Meet and Greet, which is older than your blog, has 800 posts!

    Susan, I usually only post once a day, where at Win-a-Book you often have a half-dozen to a dozen posts a day.

    I really appreciate you posting it over on Win-a-Book considering it's not a book that your readers would be winning. Maybe you can console yourself that they could use the calendar to write down their favorite authors release dates?

    I'm usually so bad at these things b/c I can spot the tiny differences but miss the Really Obvious ones. LOL

    And congrats on 800! Excellent!
