Time's running out- and Cinderella's gettin' nervous

Time's running out- and Cinderella's gettin' nervous image                                          Time's running out- and Cinderella's gettin' nervous

It's not over yet, but somebody's coach is just about ready to turn into a punkin'.  As a famous Yogiism instructs, "It ain't over 'til it's over"- and in just a few short hours, it'll be over.

Yes, today marks the last day of my first ActiveRain contest, "Under The Influence(s): an ActiveRain Contest".  Polls will remain open Entries will be accepted through 11:59 pm PDT (ActiveRain Left Coast time, you know), and you can get to my original post by clicking this link:


Thank you to all who have submitted entries thus far, and to those whose entries may come in before today's end.  At more than 200 comments and over 1,600 views at this point, it's been a pretty steady stream of activity over the course of the month.

I'll be posting the results as quickly as I can- likely Monday morning as I see it right now.  I've personally read every entry I've received thus far- and regardless who ultimately "wins" this thing, I can guarantee that ActiveRain is blessed with a wealth of amazing members- and I've been blessed by the opportunity to learn more about folks I previously knew and to become acquainted with a number of others for the very first time.

Once again, to all who have already entered the contest, I 'preciate it.  And to those who have yet to enter...tick, tick, tick.......

Hi, Sally and David:  Thank you for stopping by, and for your kind words.  I think there have only been 1 or 2 days when things got a bit crazy.  I wanted to ensure I commented both on the entries themselves individually as well as acknowledge folks on the original post page- so on days when I had a Board of Directors' meeting, work, etc, it got a bit crazy as I didn't want to get behind on things.

That's where the positive side of not really sleeping that much comes in, though!

Hi, Eileen:  Thank you for dropping by, and for your comment and kind words.  I'm glad folks seem to have enjoyed this.  As I mentioned in responding to a few entries (have to forgive my not recalling exactly whose entry right now), one of the neatest things has been the cases where folks have known each other for years on here (and in some cases for 20 years apart from this site), yet learned things about each other for the very first time.

Roy Kelley and his beautiful flower photos and another entry where it turned out someone is a tremendous painter come to mind as things I'm glad I discovered.

Have a great day!

Dennis, Thanks for all the work you have put into this contest and thank you so much for the wonderful comment you left on my entry into your challenge. I thought writing entry would be difficult but not having to do the negative stuff took a load off of my mind! I appreciate it very much. Have a great day..
