We Have A Winner!

Congratulations to Joyce Coady. Tonight she came up with seven correct songs and performers to the slide shows. She’s our first winner.

Here are the seven songs Joyce figured out…
MoosilaukeU2, “Beautiful Day”
Tom, Field, Wiley- Madeline Peyroux, “This is Heaven to Me”
Jackson – Carly Comando, “Everyday”
Garfield – The Verve, “Bittersweet Symphony”
The KinsmansVan Morrison, “Days Like This”
Summit Shots – Matchbox 20, “How Far We’ve Come”
Cabot – Elvis Costello, “Let’s Misbehave”

Joyce wins our first box set of our soon-to-be released Tom & Atticus greeting cards.

And just for the record, the one song I don’t think anyone figured out was the one for the Waumbek slide show. It’s rather fitting, when you consider the little dog I hike with and live with and who he is named after. The song is the theme from the movie of “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Elmer Bernstein.

With the next slide show we’ll start a new game for the music contest. For round two, Dawn and Jeff Price of The Natural Dog in Newburyport will be awarding a gift basket to the winner. The winner can choose a basket for a dog or a cat. (You don't have to be from Newburyport to win it. It will be sent to you if you are out of the area.)
