Blog sabbatical and future contest!

So here's the deal... it's going to get quite quiet quickly around here. :)

My parents house doesn't have the internet and I'm not going to sign it up out there.

So I'm taking a months sabbatical from posting.

BUT... some interesting news... Posting will pick up again November 1st WITH a give-away.
I'm giving away something so very dreadful it actually caused me to sin. So obviously, it can't stay at my house. But the object is actually wonderful in a way... and others may not have the same reaction to it that I did.

I'd enjoy seeing your guesses... whenever I get the internet back. Meanwhile have fun wondering what on earth I'll give away... that is IF anyone enters the contest... they may see what I'm offering and refuse to enter. In which case I'm picking an address from the phone book and announcing them the winner.
OR better yet, when I start the contest if you won you could give me the address of someone you don't like and I could mail it to them?? Interesting the options available for giving away bad good things.

Enjoy your October people. It's a beautiful fall this year in Texas. Go sit outside. Turn the tv off and just be quiet.

Obviously you won't need the internet for at least another month. :)

I like free stuff, so I'll take it. I'm guessing it could be anything? And, I can't ever get enough of those "anythings", lol. So, please pick me,(has hands and feet raised, screaming) PICK ME! ME! ME! ME!

You'd probably like to know what my guess....It is a case of beer...A&W root beer, that is.

I'm thinking, maybe, how it is close to the certain day, it is a "big bag O' candy?" or a "big bag O' cookies?"

Thank you guys so much for all the comments and guesses! I've really enjoyed reading them, and it has considerably warmed my month so far.

Because of that, I just wanted to let you know that everyone that has commented on this particular post will be entered in the contest. When it officially starts, any comments on that post will just be extra chances for ya.

I do want to tell you that, seeing as I really do like you all and want to keep you around, that the prize is NOT going to be a month old food item. :) So keep guessing - but it's not food.

I'm enjoying you all so much, thank you for the company this month.

Well, my dad wouldn't mind if it was a month-old food item, he'd eat it, mold and all. Lol. Ok, it is a battery operated device.

Hello again from the internet-free land of my parents house.

Glenda, you most certainly can enter, as long as you don't make me have anything to do with the product if you DO win.

Ms. Layvon, :) I think at Christmas time I'm just going to mail you some wrapping paper and a bow with a card that says "from Jeanette" then you can stop worrying about that dish. I'm thinking it'd be hilarious if you won this awful thing in the contest just because of that dish! :)

I can hardly wait till I get home and actually announce the contest. I think you all will be a little surprised at what I'm giving away!

Perhaps a romance novel?
