Recipe for a giveaway draw

Making a cheesecake this morning,
a couple of lemons pulled from the tree were still hanging happily

It was a reminder of the need to perhaps manage a faster blog giveaway prize draw this time round.

Ingredients:

~some popping corn~

~a permanent marker~

~one Spring lawn, unmowed for a month~

~3 distracted children~

Method-

Number the corn with entries.
While the kidlets are otherwise distracted,
fling the kernels randomly into the backyard lawn.

Lock the children outside and tell them that they can't go back inside until winners have been found.

Consider the fact that,  gosh, really, those kernels are small
and very hard to find in longer grass.
Who'd have thought it would take so long?

Get down on your hands and knees to look for yourself
(and tell the kids that no, they still can't go inside.
If it is good enough for a 42 year old woman to crawl around her backyard,
they can get their little tooshies down there too)

Decide right about then that next time
a number out of a hat might be the way to go.

Thank you to everyone who entered.
We had a fantastic holiday
and I am hoping that I can brighten the day for a few of you...

That is the best method yet. Hope there weren't any bindies in your yard. Cherrie

Take that Mr Random Number generator!
I did think for one minute that you were going to put the kernels in the microwave and pick the one that popped first!
