We have a WINNER!! (finally!!) of the FEBRUARY 2012 Free Photo Contest: Theme: FOOD
I have a huge apology....
Between going to Mexico in February
(and then getting sick after we got back)...
I did not yet post who won the FEBRUARY
FREE PHOTO CONTEST
(How time flies when you are having fun
NOT having fun!)
I am wayyyyy late in doing this, and my sincere apologies go out to the dear, dear readers
who entered that contest (and must think by now that their lovely photos
ended up in the very ocean that I went to see on vacation)....
They were safely tucked away in bloggerland, waiting for these lazy typing fingers to finally post
the Judge's Pick.
(I had a long talk with my fingers and I want you to know they are grounded, and had to do 1,000 pushups to make it up to you.) (I bet you are glad that you weren't one of my kids growing up!)
(Please, I beg of you, do NOT report me to the Protective Services for Fingers Dept. for abuse to fingers. They deserve it, all ten of them!!)
since the post of all the entries was SO LONG AGO (sorry about that! AGAIN!!)
please go to
and take a peak at all the entries
before you come back to this page to see the winner.
(Go ahead, we'll wait right here until you get back....)
HI, welcome back.
Weren't they scrumptous??
Aren't you glad I made you hungry?
So, did YOU pick the same winner as our Judges did???
Drum roll*, please..................................
(*tapping fingers on desk beside keyboard will do)----
Congratulations to Linda R.
Her blog is called: "Linda Letters".
The Judges said they chose this one over the others due to:
*its wonderful colors
*the perspective (angle) it was taken
congratulations, once again, to Linda for her creativity!
Special mention also comes from the Judges to:
--Sharon W. (for her humor on the theme)
--Gary W. (for mouthwatering appeal)
Thanks to EVERYONE for entering each and every month....we love your creativity and your talents and sure love seeing what everyone enters on an assigned theme.
I just joined a new photography class where our instructor is assigning ME a theme, and WOW it is hard... I didn't realize how hard I have been on you until now...but watch out...because NOW? I can
torture you assign them in the future with new theme ideas from the class I am taking. (*insert evil laugh HERE).
Thanks once again for your patience in my late posting of all of your hard work.
I will be posting March's entries soon ( the assigned theme was: Something Green, and boy, wait until you see those entries...fantastic!!) so stay tuned!
the annoucement you have been WAITING for!

- The Retired One
- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
