Prizes and Animal fun

As the blog tour for Animal Sound Mix-up nears a conclusion, I've found that my gmail account has been having problems and not receiving emails. This was the address I had given to contact me when copies of Animal Sound Mix-up were purchased to enter the prize drawing. Please leave a comment below or contact me at beautifulmomentsofjoyandpeace at yahoo dot com to let me know if you purchased a copy of the book. That will ensure that you are entered in the drawing for an animal ornament collection.

There will also be drawings for a $10 Amazon gift certificate and Animal Encyclopedia from those leaving comments during the tour.

The complete schedule for the tour, in case you missed any stops and would like to visit, is below, followed by some animal fun.

computer issues can be so frustrating!! Hopefully you get it all cleared up!

Jemi, it is frustrating. It also won't let me follow people's blogs. I don't like that! Thanks for your sympathy with the problem.
