I did, finally, get around to collecting the names of those who guessed right first in the Papiamentu guessing game, and writing those names on itty bitty pieces of paper...
|The nine participating names, the twelve itty bitty pieces of paper|
(Debbie, Bob, and Sabina had two correct guesses each, so they participated twice)
and putting those in a hat...
|A beach hat -- of course ;)|
and blindly selecting three, which means
we have the winners!!!
Congratulations Bob, Susan, and the blogger at Pempi's Palace! I'll drop by your blogs to let you know, and we can communicate (email me at guilie (dot) quietlaughter (at) gmail (dot) com, or via Facebook) to figure out how to get your copy of The Miracle of Small Things to you. The book won't be released until this summer, July probably, so we have time to iron out details.
Thanks to everyone that joined in... I hope you had fun with Papiamentu's sometimes-misleading vocabulary; I certainly have, during my twelve years on this island ;)
