A Link to My Erma Bombeck Essay Posted on the Washington Centerville Library Website
Thanks to everyone who called, e-mailed, or left comments and words of encouragement and support on my blog. Special thanks to my friends who posted about my win on their own blogs or on Facebook.
You are the BEST FRIENDS EVER!
Several people have asked to read my essay.
The Washington Centerville Library has posted all the winning essays on their website. Here's a link to their page. If you scroll down you can find mine as the First Place winner in the Global Humor Category. The website also lists statistics for entries in all categories. There were 525 overall entries from 49 states and 7 countries, including Ireland, China, and Spain. I don't know how many of those were in the Global Humor Category, but the contest coordinator told me on the phone there was a lot of competition.
As for the celebration and workshop in Dayton, my sister Kathleen is driving there with me next month. Walt is going to stay home to take care of the grandkiddos. What a guy!
After I return from Dayton I'll post about it here. Thanks again, everyone. It's been an exciting few days!
