Did you know that Fall (the season) is short for the medieval English for Fall Of the Leaf? I read that somewhere a long time ago and have filed it in the part of my brain that stores Things That Might Not Be True But Are So Good That They Should Be True.
We had a heavy rain here on the north shore of Long Island last week and it was mighty helpful in bringing down some decent-sized leaves from trees that are still a week or two from their peak colors. So I took my crutches and hobbled over to the neighbor’s front yard and spent a very happy half hour staring down at the ground, poking at this windfall to find leaves with personality that I could paint for you all. So here is your mutt maple leaf (see above, as per your request, dear readers) that can be yours in my Fall Leaf Give Away (see below).
Yes, I like these new paints mucho.The colors are more vivid and so true to nature. Fun!
Here’s how you can win one of these hand-painted (and, eventually, hand autographed) Fall Leaves:
1. Leave a Comment below. Your Comments are each assigned a number by the gremlins that host this blog (WordPress) and that includes the hundreds of spam (tiresome, endless spam) Comments I get, which is why this next step makes sense:
2. Top Cat has randomly chosen two numbers. If that number corresponds to your Comment # or, in the case of a spam Comment hitting that lucky #, the one just before it, you will win one of these Fall Leaves. I will announce winers next Frida, and send them wafting your way as soon as I receive your mailing address.
By the way, the numbers you want to hit are 2391 and 2954 .
Oh, and there’s one more thing:
3. To qualify to win, you must have left a 5-star review of Le Road Trip on Amazon.com. It’s not to late to leave a glowing review on Amazon — you still have time to do so and enter your name for the prize!
