Well, one Canadian, that is.
And I don’t believe the British need to be placed on high alert.
Well, one Brit, maybe.
But she knows already.
So Paul Revere can take the night off.
Hello friends. I’m sorry I’ve been pretty scarce around these parts lately. Life has been a wee bit hectic. Business travel has seen me away from home for a week at a time, every other week since mid January.
- Atlanta (USA): January 19th to 23rd
- Vancouver (CA): February 2nd to 6th
Next stop, Manchester, Newcastle Upon Tyne and London (UK): Feb 16th to 22nd.
The week after next will be a grind. It starts with a red-eye flight from Toronto to Manchester Monday night, followed by meetings with colleagues Tuesday afternoon [without the benefit of a shower or nap following my overnight flight]. It just gets crazier every day thereafter. Two more cities in 3 days.
But then I finish up my workday Friday in London, one of my favourite cities on the planet!
This trip to London will be made extra special because my imaginary friend, Sam, will become my real 3-D friend when I meet up with her that Saturday! I couldn’t be more excited.
Since Sam and I share a passion for activities that make us sweaty, we want to do something fun and physically demanding that day.
This is where you come in.
We have decided to let YOU decide how we should spend our Saturday. You wield all the power. Well, at least one of you do. The reader with the winning plan for “one Saturday in London” will win….
Drum roll, please…
That’s right, my used-to-be-imaginary-but-is-now-a-real-life-friend, Andra, recently launched her 2nd book, a memoir, Not Without My Father. It is a beautiful, poignant and funny-as-all-shit look at the changing dynamics between an adult daughter and her aging father during her grueling 444 mile walk of the Natchez Trace.
Here is my friend, the author, explaining why you should read this book.
And one, okay, maybe two of you, but certainly not three. Well, who knows, MAYBE three of you, but certainly one, and quite possibly two, of you could win your own copy of this wonderful book.
Winners will be judged on a completely subjective basis by Sam and I, and will be announced after we have taken part in the winning plan(s).
You can enter early and often, up until the evening of Friday February 20th.
I think we can all agree that since my last blog giveaway was Cock Soup, this is a massive step up, as prizes go.
So without further ado,
3, 2, 1… go!
