ENTER AND WIN A FREE, SIGNED COPY OF “WILD BLUE UNDER” FROM JUDI FENNELL!

CONTEST TIME!!!

O.K., now you all know me well…enough…to know I’m a sneaky little devil at contest time. You know nothing is as simple as I may make it appear, right? Then again … I could be tricking you too…we will see who knows me best!



To win - tell me how many jelly beans are in this jar. If you get it right you could be the winner of this awesome book “Wild Blue Under” (if there is a tie – names go into the hat and a winner will be chosen)
BUT …. if you’re the incorrect lowest number guessed or the incorrect highest number guessed…OH NO…it could be very bad for you…a surprise awaits for the worse guesser(s) as well….But it might not be what you think…you could owe me a book or the jelly beans or, or, or….

So…who’s ready to gamble? Who’s ready to take a chance like Rod did in Wild Blue Under and take a leap of faith?


Can you hear me evil laughter?

Well, it is October you know! The Witches month….

Aahahahahahahahahaaaaaa

So just the ones in the jar or include any around the jar? Want to make sure I'm trying to guess with the right information. Love the contest Hawk!

If I don't win, can I at least have the Jelly Beans?

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile!

I've got your number and I'll let you know if you're right next weekend!

You do know me don't you. And yes, you're welcome to eat the ones out of the jar! ;-)

Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

OH, BTW

I've missed you all! It was a long vacation but I hadn't see me twin in two years so I needed and wanted it badly!

But, I'll be at the party with the Jelly Beans - how many of you are coming?

LOL
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Blodeuedd,

Hey sweetie!

Well, do to the vacation I didn't put a lot into this one...but I did try to trick you girls...I admit, I'm a devil when it cones to making things interesting for you, but you girls put up the challenge, and I had no choice but to be sneaky with you. LOL

I've got your guess on the JB!

Hugs
Hawk - did you discover where I'm being sneaky?

Vicki said...

Welcome home. I'm glad you had a great time with your sister and I'm really glad you're home. Can't wait till the retreat! :)

Okay, so don't put me in the actual contest because I have the book, but I've got to guess anyway.
How about 39. Probably way off.

Liza said...

I'm going to guess 65. Hope I'm close, I would really love to win!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Vicki,

Thank you for the welcome home wish - it's nice to be back.

Glad to hear Paul is doing a little better. So, will you be going to the retreat or staying home with Paul?

Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Liza -

Hey sweetie, I've got your number down!

xoxo Hawk

M.V.Freeman said...

120

and if any are missing, I ate them.

Its been one of those weeks, and its ONLY Monday.

LOL

Back to lurking

Cecile said...

I am just glad that you had a wonderful time with your sister and that you are home safe & sound now! You are right, after two years, that was much needed for you and her!!!!

I have eaten all the red ones... I love those! LOL!!!
Oh... will be emailing you soon... for you know what **wink wink**
Have a great night honey!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

M.V.

Hands off the jelly beans until after the contest! Bad! Bad! But if it's been one of those weeks...have at 'em...course you will be affecting the name of the winner, and I believe you guessed 120???
If you eat too many....

LOL
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile,

Hands off the red ones - ah, look, now I've got to replace them...Cecile, you be good! No eating the contest! ;-)

Yes, it was great seeing me twin. I've missed her even tho' we talk everyday - it's hard not seeing her.
I need to fatten her up and slim meself down...she's swimming in a size 3 and I'm squeezing into a size 5 right now...the food in Vegas is awesome! I had gone hoping to lose but that didn't happen...ah, well. What ya' gonna do?

Yes, please let me know the date. I stayed so long in Vegas...I'm way behind on everything!

Hugs
Hawk

Vicki said...

Hawk - I'll be at the retreat since we're so close and also because I kinda have to be there. But I'll be checking on him by phone alot. :)

I can't wait to be able to spend some time with you. It's been way way way too long. I so miss our talks. You inspire me. :D

Hugs,
Vicki

Carol Henry said...

Hi, Hawk,

Glad to hear you're back from vacation and I hope all is well. Sounds like the retreat is going to be fun, wish I lived closer...

As for the contest, this is one I can jump in on, although I'm only guessing here. I say there are about 75 jelly beans in the jar. Although the depth of the jar is desceiving... I'm just saying.

Leontine said...

HAWK, that vacation got your wickedness level in to the devilish side!! Your evil, evil I tell ya!! Are there going to be any jelly beans left in that jar by the time this contest is finished?? I never tasted jelly beans come to think of it hhmmm

just going by everyone's answer so I will have a new number to add....

My answer will be *pause* 55 jelly beans

M.V.Freeman said...

See, I don't think I'm the only one snacking on Jelly Beans....:-)

*EG*

Cecile said...

Sorry... **putting more red ones in my mouth**... I really love the red ones. Well, that is just a few more numbers we can shave off, cuz I ate the red ones!!!

MV...Nah, you are not the only one snacking... I ate the red ones... I will have to go to the store to get more! Hey, how about some M&M's! Those are tasty and colorful too. Think Hawk would notice if we changed it to M&M's!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile!

Hey! Off, OFF, get off those J-Beans! HEY - WHO PUT THOSE RED M&M's IN HERE?

O.K., who is the guilty ones mucking with me J-Beans and the out come of this contest? WHO!!!!????

};-#
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

M.V.,

Are those your fingerprints I see on these J-Beans?

I'm going to tell Judi you girls are cheating just so you can get her book!!!

Bad, Bad, bad girls!!!

Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Leontine!

Hey Sweetie - well, I know you're being good...never had one huh? Well, I didn't eat my first one until I was back in the States and about 26 years old...it was a black one and I didn't like it so I didn't eat another one until I was about 38 and it was flavored Pina Colada - I liked that and tried another one that tasted like popcorn...cotton candy and one that tasted like grapefruit...lots of suger but they are good when the sweet-tooth hits you.

Come on over and I'll share a few with you - we'll eat the last of the red ones since M.V. and Cecile have already had a dozen of them! EACH!

{:-D

Hawk

Cecile said...

Ohohoh, there are red m&m's in there now!! Yayayay. I am not sure how they got in there but oh man I love me some m&m's!
It's not cheating, if you replace what you took!!! LOL!!!
I guess we know who has a sweet tooth!!! lol!!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Hey Sweet Carol!

I was gone for a month - and running to catch up on everything that need me attention! FAST!

I hope by the time I get back from the retreat I'll be caught up a week or two after...I wish you were here to join me at the retrreat, we'd have soooo much fun.

BTW, while I was at me twins...we made your Banana Peanut Butter Bread! It was awesome! A real hit in our family - Everyone Loved it!
My twin copied down several other ones from my book for making them up later...now that winters here I'll be making more meself!

Thanks for the "Fruit & Vegetable Nut Bread cookbook"
You should sell a ton of these books at holiday time!
I LOVE IT!

Hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Vicki,

I'm hoping to get a lot of writing time in while at the retreat - I haven't written a word in a month. It'll be crunch time for me.
The speakers sound awesome - I just might take a break from the writing to hear them talk.

Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile!!!!! }:-/

I'm I going to have to come over there and get you?

I can't call it a Jelly Bean contest IF it's full of M&M's and it'd tak a lot more M&M's to fill this jar!

,Smack, smack> Hands off!

Goodness - remind me not to bake any Chocolate Chip cookies when you're around! I'd have none to serve when I was done -
I bet you love warm cookies right out of the oven, right?

8-D <--- this is you at the mention of warm CC Cookies!

LOL

Girl what am I going to do with you?

Hugs and Love
Hawk

Leontine said...

*sugar enters blood stream*

*sugar reaches brain*

*Yowza...ding ding ding, we've got a sugar rush*

Thanks for sharing a red jelly bean HAWK!

Cecile said...

You may have to come over here and get me!!!! LOL!!! Cause I am going to eat all these damn things!!!
No one will notice that it is M&M's if we don't say anything... See, no one has noticed so far =)

**ouch ouch... from the -->> Smack, smack Hands off!**

Ya just gotta love me!!! LOL!!!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Leontine -

LOL, you're welcome darlin'! I told you they were good didn't I?

Now can you help me keep the girls- specially CECILE - off the rest?

LOL
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

CECILE!!!

I'm never going to get my guest blog written if I've got to keep my eye on you!

And... "NO COOKIES FOR YOU!"

Bad, bad, bad girl!

;-)
Hawk

Leontine said...

I think the only way to distract Cecile from the jelly beans/m&m's/chcolate chip is with another form of candy...as in man-candy. I can scout a bit for that...wouldn't mind that at ALL *wink*

Cecile said...

Oh... Man candy... Leontine is picking... Oh... Yummy... Okay.. Okay... I'll get out of the jellies... and leave the cookies alone... ***Following Leontine... peaking to see what she finds... I have my bottle of whip cream ready and some cherries... ***


**pouting... but it's my birthday... I can have all the red ones... sugar giggles**

Houston A.W. Knight said...

OMG! Cecile - it's your B-day????

Happy Birthday darlin'! Here have all the red J-Beans you want. I'm sorry I didn't know it was your B-day...I'll have a batch of warm CC Cookies ready in about an hour, o.k.,?
We'll put them on the boy-toy Leontine finds and you can cover them all with whip cream and have a grand B-day!

Hugs on your special day!
Hawk

Leontine said...

Look Cecile...he has a different kind of candy for you:

Cecile said...

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Leontine - BTW, love the hat and it tells me you'll have no trouble finding Cecile a great B-day toy to enjoy for the day.

I try to hide me hat but I guess the evilness shows through at contest time. Hehehehehehehehe.

Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile - you're a little devil girl!

}:-/

I'm coming over there RIGHT NOW!!!

Cecile said...

M.V.Freeman said...

Be very bad!!!! :-)

M.V.

Houston A.W. Knight said...

M.V. I'm coming after you as well!

BEWARE - it is Halloween soon and all bad little boys and girls will see a wicked witch if they're not good.

**I is not scare of the big witch**
Giggles some more...

All those red jellies were delicious!! And now I have cookies!!!

carol henry said...

Glad you liked the cookbook, Hawk. It is baking time and I've been at it for a few days, filling up my freezer to have goods to take to bake sales, as gifts, or to have when company comes. As for selling a lot of cookbooks this time of year, yeah, that happens. Anyone wanting a copy can send me $5.50 and I'll send them a copy.

As for the jellybeans, hmmmm, are those M&Ms dark chocolate?

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile....you had guessed 59 in the jar...you've had HOW MANY out of the jar? Minus that number from 59 and you get what? And who guessed that number? LOOKS LIKE it could be Leontine or Vicki in the running IF any more J-beans come up missings!

}:-/
Just something to think about.
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Carol! YOU TOO!???

O.K., I give up, by the time it comes to pick a winner NO ONE WILL WIN! There won't be any J-beans left and I don't believe anyone guessed 0 in the jar!

You girls! }8-<

Oh...awesome! The girls can buy your bread cookbook! Ah, I'll put that up on my side bar so they know! They'll love the breads for sure...I do!

Hugs and I will write you soon!
Hawk

Cecile said...

Never give up Hawk... I went to the store and bought some more jellies!!! And some chocolate chip cookies while I was at and a couple of gallons of milk to share... and dark and milk chocolate m&m's!!!
Hehehehehehe!!!!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

WooHoo Cecile - so we've still got a contest! Now that'll make Judi happy...and whoever wins Wild Blue Under is going to be happy as well! It is a fun read...I really enjoyed it. I love Judi's voice.

Hugs Darlin'
Hawk

Vicki said...

Heehee, I didn't know we could eat the jelly beans. I like the green ones. Yummy!

CC and milk are sounding pretty good right too. :)

And I've got to go check out the cookbook. Talk about a really yummy Friday. I'm hungry now.

Judi Fennell said...

Hawk said, " I love Judi's voice."

Tell that to my kids...

:)

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Vicki!

Oh, if you like to bake you'll love Carol's cook book - try the peanut butter banana bread it's awesome!

Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Judi!

You know what they say...some people (kids) just don't know how lucky they have it until they turn 30 and become MOM's or Dad's of their own....lol, they'll find out soon enough that your voice was sweet...and they'll wonder how you ever lived through all they put you through and still managed to write so many awesome books like WILD BLUE UNDER!

Hi Hawk!

I've been running sick kids to the docs this week, so I finally have some time for playing. lol.

My guess for the jelly bean jar is 28, I know that's not many, but Cecile and Leontine have eaten half the damn beans!!!

I love the black licorice jelly beans myself, and the red ones. And if they're spicy jelly beans, I like the pink ones that taste like wintergreen, too yummy!!

Dottie :)
