Big Winner!

Last month my library had a "Where's Tober?" Contest going on.  It was in honor of My Finding Month.

AAB Miss Myrtle made a super bulletin board covered with lots and lots of Tobers and other (less important) things.  (I think AAB Blog Helper Facebooked the contest but forgot to blog it.  Sheesh.)  Anyhoo, here's a picture to give you an idea of what it looked like:

Visitors got to look at the bulletin board and guess--or count--how many Tobers were included on it!  The number of Tobers was written on a slip of paper and hidden in a top-secret hidey place, so top-secret that not even AAB Rotten Ritchie could find it and cheat.

The winner of the contest got a certificate, and some Temptations treats, and and a picture with me, and a bag of candy, and *ahem* mention on my World- and Internets- Famous Blog!  (That's right here, folks!) 

There were 68 Tobers on the bulletin board, and a library visitor named Darrah picked that number exactly!  She said she counted that many Tobers, which I think is an excellent display of counting skills!

Here I am hanging out with all of the good stuff that Darrah got to take home!  She very kindly left the bag of Temptations treats at the library, where they are being doled out very SLOWLY by my staff.

Today is Bored Meeting Day, so I'm preparing by taking an nice nap.  AB Karen and AAB Christine have a bad case of the sleepies, so I'm napping a little extra for both of them.

Hopefully they don't fall asleep in front of the Super-Bosses.  That would be embarrassing--especially if they start snoring.

Purrs, headbutts, and naps,

Well done Darrah!! I sure hope she shares the Temptations with you, Tober!

What a neat contest and congratulations to the winner. 65 is a lot of Tober counting.

That must have been a really fun contest! All those humans counting Tobers... great way for them to spend their time.

What a fun contest!

That is very nice of you to nap for your employees. Meowm says her bosses don't do that for her.
