Giveaway Wins!

I was so surprised to win three giveaways on Facebook.  Down at the bottom is a $10 gift card to a really cool store in Maine called Mexicali Blues.  Total Deadhead place.  On the top right is a sticker from Grateful Dead Books that I got for answering a trivia question correctly.  The top left set & Shakedown Street are from Parking Lots of Grateful Dead Tour's Facebook page.  They'd asked Deadheads to post their best picture taken at a Cal Expo show in Sacramento.

I didn't think I'd win with this one because it's blurry, but it's the full moon coming up from behind the stage during Drums, which, that evening, was extremely Celtic sounding and it was like Mickey & Billy were drumming up the moon.  As the full moon got to this point, they both hit their drums simultaneously & loudly, then stopped playing.  The crowd was so mesmerized that there was a beat of total silence in the arena, then the Deadheads went wild with cheering & applause, then the drummers started up again.  

I just love entering contests...I love winning even more!


  1. Wow! I guess so, you win a lot! Now do you ever get a Powerball ticket?


    Congrats JoJo!

  2. Hi JoJo .. lots to be positive about here - that's good news. Lovely wins too .. I agree the full moon sneaking out so brightly is a great shot - I love Celtic music ..

    Sorry about the car insurance hike - that's such a nuisance to have to deal with ...

    Cheers Hilary

  3. Wow, congrats! That is a great picture, and the moment sounds like one of those once-in-a-lifetime concert happenings!

    Had we known you were on a 'winning' streak, Tess could have had you buy the lottery tickets she bought for the both of us on Saturday ;0)

  5. Awesome!!


  6. Thanks all!!! I never buy Powerball because there are so many states that participate. Actually I rarely buy lottery tickets except scratchers for Russell.

    Tina, yes it was a once in a lifetime concert experience; the Dead shows were great for that !!

  7. Ooo, nice haul! Looks like you had fun, too - even blurry :D

  8. What year? 1989?

  9. Congrats on your wins! What a treat!

  10. Congratulations on your multiple wins. You seem to be in a very lucky streak or are just blessed to be a naturally lucky person.

  11. Cool! I love having winners for friends! :D
