Winners of the "Got Green?" Blogfest !!!

Aloha,







I wanted to thank everyone for taking the time to participate, comment (or do both!) during my "Got Green? Blog O'hop (version 2.0') last Friday.

 I had a great time reading all the official - and unofficial - entries and it was hard picking the winners, but after a second helping of ham and cabbage and a few pints of the Black Stuff, the choices were chosen.

I have linked each winning entry via the post writer.

If you haven't already, please stop by and I promise you'll enjoy a great yarn, a couple of true stories and I mustn't forget the French Connection :)


... Here, mister conductress, can I get a bodhrán roll please...

Elise Fallson said...

Congratulations to the winners. I had great fun too even if I didn't enter. Thank you again for making my day with that song! Best of lucks with your challenge.

~Sia McKye~ said...

OH MY GOSH! Really?

Well...wow! Thank you Mark. I do have a pretty awesome family--most of the time.

Is this where I mention that I didn't even notice there was a prize when I signed up? I just thought it was a cool topic and would be fun. I don't get to do many bloghops.

I loved Sheena-kay's leprechaun story. It was a great piece. I love stories that entertain and have a moral. I could so see this as an oral story--the gestures,voice pitch, musical beats, and the reactions of the audience circled around.

Donna's family being the survivor of the Donner Party was fascinating.

I think Elise had fine contribution--well there was green beer but I loved her green dress, lol!

Congratulations Ladies!

Thanks for the fun hop, Mark!

Thanks Mark. This was great fun. I'll send the query; and no rush on it. Don't mess with that editing schedule.
