Giveaway Winner

Is Jo Who Can't Think of a Clever Name.  I'll send her an e-mail today and let her know to expect the charts as soon as the somewhat erratic cross-Atlantic mail can manage it.

What did it for me was her comment that she liked my sense of humor and found it a bit British. I majored in English literature while at college.   I imagine immersion in all those British authors has had an effect on my wit [though my siblings claim I lack any humor, at all - but, then, they don't get me]. 

To this day, I still re-read the collected works of Jane Austen annually and enjoy reading a  bit of Shakespeare or D. H. Lawrence every so often ... not to mention lighter reading like Tolkien, Lewis, Frye, Wodehouse and Ellis.  Even my DVD shelf is crowded with British titles: Jeeves and Wooster, Fawlty Towers, Rumpole, Mulberry. Cadfael, Poirot, Miss Marple, To The Manor Born and The Irish RM.

So,yes, I guess my sense of humor is a bit British.

Oh that's me! I think you have a very dry wit and I really appreciate your writing.
I got into quite a "lively" debate on Facebook the other day because an American woman just did not understand the irony being used by another poster, the more I tried to explain irony and sarcasm, the less she got it!
Anyway I am delighted to win the charts, can't wait to see what is in the bundle. They should arrive just in time for my Birthday too. Not a special one this year so I'm keeping quiet about the age.
