Today is the mom’s birthday.  She’s like elebenty billion years old.  I asked her what she wanted me to get her for her birthday.  And she said “Ernie, I don’t want to get anything…how about I give something instead?”

Well, I think that’s a pretty cool idea…mainly because I don’t have to get the mom something.  So here’s what we’re gonna do to celebrate the mom’s birthday.

Most of you know Miss Chrystal over at Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats With Your Coffee) and all she does for homeless animals.  She has a brick walkway called “The Winnie’s Wish Walkway” and right now she’s having a fundraiser to raise green papers to help the homeless animals she cares for…donate to get an engraved brick in the walkway.  You can read more about it HERE.


About a year ago, we donated to get a brick in the walkway.  Now we want one of you to have a brick, too. Leave us a comment that you want to be entered into our giveaway to win a brick (text engraved only) in the The Winnie’s Wish Walkway, and let us know how you would have the brick engraved if you won. You can have it engraved with whatever you want…maybe memorialize a furbaby or human who may no longer be here or highlight your blog or your family.  We’ll randomly select one of you to win a brick in The Winnie’s Wish Walkway.

So this giveaway is a two-fer.  We’ll give a donation to help the homeless animals and give one of you a brick in the walkway.  We think that’s a great way to celebrate the mom’s birthday.

Leave a comment…one per family or household, okay?  And everybuddy’s eligible.  If you don’t have a blog, make sure you give us an email address where we can contact you.  You have until Tuesday, October 15 at 10pm (island time) in which to enter.  We’ll announce the winner later this week.

Happy Birthday, Mom!
