We have Winners! ~ four of them (yep, finally)



We have Winners ~ Yeah!  

Wonder why this guy looks so fun and happy, even in the rain?  I think its because he has a bag of books in his hand and he won them all from Layers of Thought.

Since we love to win books, its even better to give them away!  Which is the point since we finally have winners to our belated contest, and three others which are not quite so behind schedule. I hope you will all forgive me *wink*.  I am a very bad blog host.

Well enough of that and lets hear it for our winners ~ with a great round of applause, drum rolls, four gun salute… and all that……

BRAVO for the book winners!

I also wanted to tell you I love that John Burroughs quote you share beneath your header graphic.

Thanks for the effort to support our winners!

I loved that quote too and thought the word thought was perfect for layers of thought.
