Short and Sweet (Sort of!)

Hey, I hope everyone's 2009 is off to a great start!!

The past week was rather hectic for me-I had my first event for THE WITCH'S GRAVE at Beaverdale Books in Des Moines (they still have a few signed copies available if anyone's interested). Thanks to the fact that I live in Iowa and it's winter, the 40 mile drive home was interesting!! As in "white knuckle, keep it between the lines, Shirley!" interesting. Rain, turning to sleet, turning to ice!!

So now the winter blahs, mentioned last week, have hit, and I'm dreaming of white beaches and frosty drinks with little umbrella's in them!! Is there anyone else out there who would like to escape the gray doldrums, too? If so, the question of the week is, if you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? As I said, for me it would be somewhere with sand, sun, and lots of warm water!! (To say nothing of all those little drinks! Lol) Share and I'll give away one more signed copy of THE WITCH'S GRAVE!

And speaking of THE WITCH'S GRAVE, last week's winner is Shawn. Shoot me an email (shirley@shirleydamsgaard.com) with your address, Shawn, and I'll get your copy in the mail!

Have a great upcoming weekend!!

Best,
Shirley

I would love to go to Australia but with it being winter and cold I would be happy anywhere it is warm and has a beach.

You can come down here to the gulf coast. I really can't complain much in the winter. It's the summer that makes me gripe.

I can see we’re pretty much on the same page here...we want some place warm!! 8) (and lucky Jess is living in such a place right now! I’ve been to the gulf once, Jess, and I loved it! If you’re on the beach this weekend, think of us poor Midwesterners shivering in 4 degree weather!!)

Donnas and Crystal...Australia has always been a dream vacation for me, too. And not just for the warmth about now—I think it’s a fascinating country. Ah well, maybe someday!! 8)

And Sarabelle, men in kilts, heh??? Lol! For me it wouldn’t be so much the kilts, though that would be nice, but the accent! To be in a country where they all sounded like Sean Connery?? 8) Shades of Jamie Frasier! (one of my favorite characters!)

Thanks to everyone for posting...I’ll announce the winner next Thursday!

Have a good one!

I would love to go to the Caribbean. Sun, sand, blue water and lots of Corona! I can totally relate to the "white knuckle" driving experience. My latest driving mantra is "please let me make it up this hill...". Spring can't come soon enough for me.
