I am excited – you might be too

Dear friends,  a brand new book is coming my way and I would like to give it to one of my readers who loves Michigan as much as I do.  You might remember the Pure Michigan sponsored photo contest from last year.  This book is a compilation of all of the best photos that were submitted by various photographers staying here in Benzie County and elsewhere around the state.

The book has arrived in book stores – Merri Heffelfinger, from the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, saw it at Borders the other day…I have one coming and I want you to have it.

Here’s the crux of the story, I cannot think of anything to ask you.  However, I have wet your appetite. Keep looking  for the contest because as soon as I think of something good, the contest begins.
