First, let me thank all five participants in this blogathon. All of these entries are delightful to read, and they really capture the cheery, blithe spirit of Laurel & Hardy’s comedy.
I promised that I would post the first- , second- , and third-place winners’ entries here at my blog, and I will do so later today. In the meantime, here is a listing of all of the winners, as well as links to their blog entries. Click on each movie title to read each blogger’s entry.
If you are one of the winners, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (If you’re having trouble reading that, put these altogether as one word: social media specialist @ gmail.com) In your email, please include both the name of your blog, and the name and street address where you would like your prize to be sent.
