Saturday Centus - You are my sunshine...

Jenny Matlock
Welcome to week sixty-six of Saturday Centus.

Loved the egg posts! You guys are wayyyy too clever.

So this week, we'll kinda/sorta go back to a regular prompt.


I'm going to make it a tiny bit different by doing a little giveaway with this weeks offerings.

The prompt this week is: "You are my sunshine..."

You can use the four words of the prompt AND, since my office is ridiculousy hot for most of the day, UP TO 50 additional words. You can also use a picture if you like.

The regular restrictions apply: PG, no splitting of the prompt, play nicely and visit the other entries, any style or genre of writing you prefer.

This fun little sign will be the prize for this giveaway.

It is 9 x 10 inches so it will fit just about anywhere and it comes in pink, light blue, light green, navy, milk paint teal, apricot, yellow or black.

This company will only ship to the continental US, so if you win and live anywhere else, your prize will be an Amazon gift card for $25.00.

The little sign will take 3 - 4 weeks to get to you, since I can't order it until I choose the winner (since I want you to have a color choice).

Here's all the blah-blah-blah fine print stuff.

1. Your linked post is your entry.
2. Linky closes on Saturday August 13. I will use the Random Org site to select a winner on, Sunday, August 14th.
3. I will notify you by e-mail on Sunday night so you can get your color selection and address to me.
4. You can get one extra chance for this cute little sign by visiting the last 7 links from last weeks SC and leaving each a comment. Just leave a comment on this post telling me you did it and that will count as an extra chance. (Hmmm...I hope that wasn't too confusing.)



Please display my link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.

E-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!

Goodness me Jenny - SO many instructions! You know me - always do as I'm told so have been visiting as requested. Will now try to sort out a picture AND more words! See you later!

Lynn said...

Not so easy to write once that song gets in your head... Thanks for a chance at the fun give-away! Happy Weekend:@)

Dazee Dreamer said...

I so try to get to all of the links. But I will go do it so I have a better chance of winning. *laughing hysterically*. I know you just asked why I'm laughing, well, because, hates me. But I still give it a go once in a while. :)

Great prompt.

Sunshine? Need Rain...Just because you live in the land of the desert sun does not give you authority to keep coming up with these 'hot' prompts. If you don't stop, I am going to have to make you do a prompt with snow imagery. Ha!! BTW i did as you asked and have read the last 8 postings from last week...oh, I want that sign sooo badly...Peace and blessings

Nonna said...

50 extra words and a prize ? Baby, I'm in writing heaven today and you're awesome !!!

Unknown said...

Oh what fun! My centus will be up after I am able to capture a certain photo...This is the perfect prompt for me, with special memories and a very special meaning.

Oh yes dear sweet Jenny I just savor this prompt and also gives me a chance to bring forth my Marionette that some asked for last they never ever saw a Marionette with his one arm tied behind his back while blindfolded and in competition with Sir Gordon! The only 50 extra words does me good too cuz it's a busy weekend! Thank you so much Miss Jenny! Have a great weekend! ;)

Bookie said...

Thanks for the constant variety for Centus. Also thanks for reminder to go back and read last 7 of last week. I zip along all week reading and then a new week starts and I I miss some good ones. Glad you pushed me back this week so I didn't miss Tom's Humpty Dumpty one!

Cranking up to another 106 today...very tired of weather and my own whine about it. First horrible winter, short wet rainy spring bringing killer torndao, and now hot as Hades...I am afraid to even think what is next! Centus is a nice escape!

Nonna Beach said...

No, NOT 50 words EXTRA, just 50 words period. Naughty Jenny !

Nonna was never good at reading directions. Too busy and on fire writing my story.

Thank you so much Becky for giving me the heads up in you nice comment !

Daydreamer said...

LOL I'm not going to even try to understand your info on looking at those pics and noting. If I get one I like the one you have or, blue is my fav colour ;)
Thanks Jenny

noexcuses said...

Thanks for allowing a picture! It really helps unscramble some of the mess in my head when I can focus on one idea. As always, I'm so grateful for this meme, as I am a complete idiot by the end of the week!

Your comments also feel like hugs!

Ames said...

Hey Jenny, I went back to make sure I read the last 7 posts on last week's Centus for another chance at the "You Are My Sunshine" sign, and I did. But I think you forgot to read mine
:( ~Ames

I kept hearing that song too man.... hard but I got around it. I was determined since I missed last week's:-)

I read the last seven blogs from last week but wasn't able to post on one of them. I love this prompt and I love that cute little sign. When the contest is over, could you please post a link to the store for those of us who do not win as I would love to have one.

Hi Jenny,

With apologies, I wrote a story I titled "Jenny" before remembering it was your name. I had deleted that story and re-posted it as "Debbie".

Susan Anderson said...

Oh, dear. I interpreted the word count this week as an additional 50 words on top of our usual 100 and didn't realize I had it wrong until I read Judie's comment on my Centus (and now these comments, here).

Sorry, Jenny. I think I got in too much of a hurry reading the instructions. From now on, I will read them over slooooowly and carefully!

(And if that doesn't work, I'll have my head examined!)


Susan Anderson said...

PS. I did read and comment on all the Centuses last week. Does that redeem me?


Unknown said...

I read all of last week's SC-posts and commented on every last one!
Best wishes,
Sanna's Sunshine SC Wk 66

I liked reading these. My boys are on the autism spectrum, and they had speech delays. When they began talking (finally) they only used words that they picked up from songs or TV programs. Fearing that I would never hear them say "I love you" I taught them this song. Then - when I sang it to them, I would stop after I said, "You'll never know dear, how much.." and then they would say it, every time. :)

I collected many "I love you"s that way!

Unknown said...

Dear Jenny,
Now I have read and left comments on all 40 of this week's "You are my Sunshine"-posts.
Just so you know.
And last weeks too.
Best wishes & hugs,
"John Leaves Sanna" Link number 6.

Now I have commented on link 41, so I have not missed anybody!
