Free James Taylor Tanglewood Tickets - Part 2

At the last post, Ryan Seacrest had left the building, and my impartial accounting firm had drawn the winner name for the free James Taylor Tanglewood August 29 Tickets.



Which was confirmed by Zack, my third party impartial accounting firm who really liked the yellow bowl. (His interest wanes fast…he’s on the rawhide bone, now.)


And the winner is…. may I have a drumroll, please??? PLEASE?



Terri, aka Pepsi's Mom, who hails from northwest Kansas! (Maybe I should have had ThatManILove wash the popcorn butter from his hands first.) Terri, you have won seats to James Taylor, Section 20, seats 1 & 2!

Congrats, Terri – I think I have your mailing address, so be watching out for them, you postmaster you!


Here was Terri's comment on my blog. Though she lives in Kansas, I know her through field trialing our German Shorthairs (and actually, she was grandma to Zoie the WonderPup #1, who we so tragically lost last year - click the link to read the story) - so how cool that Terri got the first set of tickets! (Clue, clue)

Wellllll....I already have a vacation scheduled for the last week of Aug. I am going to see my totally broke, just out of college, daughter. She just happens to live in Coxsackie NY, a hop and a skip down the through way to Tanglewood! I love James Taylor, and she is a cello player who would love to see YoYo Ma! Janie, you are such a generous person! Even if I don't win, this has been a blast posting! LUKE 6:38

So, how awesome is it that Terri won? Now, if you didn't win, don’t close out and never come back to this blog…I decided to keep going. What, you say? Keep going? Are you crazy, Janie?

The answer is...Yes. But if you're a regular reader of this blog, well, then you know that already.

We had another drawing for yet another pair of tickets. I didn’t tell you about these, but this is so much fun, and what the heck did I buy all these tickets for, anyway? I was supposed to sell the rest of our tickets on one of those sites, but I looked at ThatManILove and batted my big brown eyes, and thus this contest was birthed!

Here’s drawing number two:
And the winner is…


Dang that Ryan Seacrest channeler! He's back and calling for another commercial break!

The winner post will go up tomorrow for the second set of tickets!

After that, are there more, you ask? Only. The. Shadow. Knows. And, maybe, the impartial accounting firm of Acme, BeepBeep, and Blam…

Don't you EVEN change that channel. Ya snooze, ya lose!

Congratulations Terri! Enjoy the storytelling, music and fellowship of JT and the crowd he attracts. Sheryl Crow and James make an awesome duet. I know your daughter will enjoy Yo Yo Ma as well. My mother used to be his travel agent - booked him and his cello on tour. Have a wonderful time. Val

Terri aka Pepsi's Mom said...

Thank you so much! I am sooooooo pumped! We will totally enjoy it! This Ks girl has worked for the postal service 6 days a week for 21 years, and I do not get out of town much. We will email you lots of pictures!
Janie, you guys are just amazing!

Congratulations Terri!! Thanks Janie for keeping hope alive for another day...this is so much fun! My love of JT's music has led me, via YouTube, to a couple who has started a cover band that plays his music. They are from the UK and share songs they record from their home. I have never found anyone who plays and sings James Taylor's music better, other than the Man himself. Don't get me wrong I love JT much more but they do a great job. Let me pass on this link so you can check them out as well. http://www.youtube.com/nansir?gl=IN&hl=en-GB

How cool for Terri. The connections are amazing...a cellist for a daughter and Zoie's grandma? Too wonderful. Glad Zack and Ryan were working so hard.

I saw the T...
I thought it was me...
I was elated...
And then deflated.

Congratulations Terri!

Cheers...Tami
