Day Three - Realms Faire and Unicorn Hunt. And Happy Veterans Day, Daddy



The Realms Faire has begun! Dozens of games with a ton of prizes. Visit the Realms Faire page at M. Pax’s site for a full list. Join the fun this week!

I am hosting the Unicorn Hunt this week.

You are charged with tracking down the unicorns.

Every day, a new blogger will host a photo. You will have to find the unicorns in the image, much like the famous “Where’s Waldo?” Leave a comment stating how many unicorns you find in that image. The most correct guesses wins.

Grand prize:
Ebooks -
Hot Pink in the City by Medeia Sharif
30 Seconds by Chrys Fey
One Good Catch by Heather Gardner
A Lizard’s Tail by Bish Denham
The Circle of Friends Series by L. Diane Wolfe
And -
$20.00 Amazon or ITunes gift card

Five images - many unicorns - only one winner!

Start tracking the unicorns at today’s host blog - Chrys Fey


And each day I will leave you with a new image:


Many of my images are for sale as stock photos at my site, Spunk On A Stick.
I’ve also just opened a Zazzle Store and you can purchase several items boasting my images.



Since we are also celebrating Veteran’s Day here in the US, I’d like to give honor to my father, Carl W. Wittmeyer.

He was around for the first eleven years of my life and had a huge impact on me. He was reserved, dedicated, gentle, a great carpenter, and an excellent photographer.

My father served in the US Navy during World War II. He never spoke of it, so photos and a few pieces of Japanese planes are all that remains.

Thanks for defending this country, Daddy.

Veterans Day will be remembered all over the world, hope people realise what sacrifices were made in the wars and conflicts over the years.

Military people do so much for us. And those lighted bikes are what people need when riding in the dark.

Thank you, everyone.

Your dad sounds like mine. He served in WWII and never spoke of it either. We have a very few pictures.
