Dear fellow earthlings,

By some miracle of the lord, my photo is among the finalists for the 2014 Springbok Puzzle image contest. As astute followers of this blog will imagine, this moves me to tears of unprecedented joy. Furthermore, I urge the readership to take a quick survey and let Springbok know what you think of the images they are considering for elevation to puzzledom.

My image features some very sweet stars and stripes. The following photo is not part of the photo in the finals, but it should give you a pretty good idea of which one is mine.

Thank you for your continued support.

Love, Erin

Congrats! I hope you win. There were so many good ones. I liked most all of them, but I gave yours ten thumbs up!

Is there anything you're not great at? Seriously. Excellent. It's organized. The left will like that. It's patriotic for the right. Colorful for the independents. Yeah Erin!

"Is there anything you're not great at?"

Making money. Doing my hair (my hair is always a mess). And yoga? Yeah, I can do some, but it ain't pretty.

The list could go on and on, but thanks for the vote of confidence just the same.

As for the image, y'all should have been behind the scenes watching me travel back and forth to sweeties to get the right candy, swearing and carrying on while I tried different designs, trying to get good photos, edited the resulting photos ...

All of it was peppered with loud unsolicited commentary about the silly amount of effort I was making in order to enter a puzzle image contest (by me, not my co-habitants)

Yeah, yeah.

DONE. And without blowing smoke up your ass I think yours was best. I think I had maybe one more that seemed like a contender.

go you!
