This is my 100th blog post and I didn’t want it to be about dead mice (that will be next time). So I think I’ll talk about something else instead.

I can hardly believe I’ve had that much to say over the past eight months. I’ve been surprised and humbled by the amount of interest in our family’s little adventure here in East Texas.

In England, when you turn 100 years old, you get a card from the Queen. At one Chick-Fil-A restaurant we visit, every 100th customer gets a free meal.

So to celebrate my 100th post, I thought I’d offer my first giveaway to my faithful readers out there. I’m new to this, so be patient, I probably won’t get it right. And don’t get too excited, I’m not giving away an i-Pad.

In order to enter, I’ll need to know you do, in fact, read my blog. So, you’ll have to leave me a comment (see bottom of every page). Hopefully I’ve got it set up so that anyone can leave a comment. If you want a better chance to win, you could start following me (see at right).

To be fair, I’ll give everyone one week to make a clever comment. Then I’ll choose a winner from the best comments.

The prize will be a one pound bag of East Texas pecans. (sorry to those non-pecan-lovers)

Here's the prize: one pound of East Texas pecans


  1. I've been "pecan" at your We Love Texas blog site since summer last. Walnut sure I'm cut out to be a great Texas farmer like you all have been, I do know almond love with your sustainable food garden! And while I'm sure there will be many comments from which to chose, I hope you will "pecan" one as nuts as mIne! :) DM

  2. Oh, I don't know, a post about dead mice means they're no longer alive, and that's good! My dad drives a red '55 Chevy truck exactly like the one in the logo on the sack...those pecans were meant to be mine. :-)

  3. I have loved reading your posts!
    Hope to see 100 more.
