Spring has sprung so let's have some fun!!

Here's your chance to take a trip down memory lane, celebrate spring and baseball, and possibly win a free copy of CONNECT THE DOTS.

When you were a kid and in school, do you remember a game your teacher would play with the whole class where you had to guess the number of jelly beans that were in a jar and the person closest to the actual number won the jar of jelly beans?

First, let me digress for a second. Didn't you ever wonder who in their right mind would actually sit there and count the jelly beans one by one?

Now you know. Some crazy author who wants to have some fun. Only, just so you know, I know why someone would volunteer to count the jelly beans that fit in a jar. The answer is simple. One for the jar, POP, one for me. One jelly bean for the jar, two jelly beans for me.

On with the fun!

Let's play jelly beans in a jar...or in this case, M&Ms in a water jug. Not just any water jug, but a Boston Red Sox water bottle. Wanna see your jar and your prize?

Here you go.

Here's how to play:

Post a comment here with your guess as to the number of M&Ms you think are in the Red Sox bottle.

Whoever comes closest to the actual count will win the jug and a copy of my latest novel, CONNECT THE DOTS.

You have until Thursday to place your guess.

The winner will be announced on Friday.

ohhh.... fun! My guess is 262 M&M's :)

Have a great day dear!

I'll say 300 M & M's

what a cool game.

After counting the M&M one by one...okay. So I couldn't do that. But I'm guestimating 463

LeslieJane March 25, 2010 at 10:33 PM  

I'm keeping my fingers crossed and guessing 423. Since I am addicted to both M&Ms and reading, this could feed bothmy addictions. Plus, I made a New Year's Resolution to win at least 5 contests a month, and have not done well this month at all, and need the wins.

ps. Love the picts of the cats.
