Thank you to everyone who entered the caption competition!

I enjoyed all your entries and would have loved to give a prize to everyone. I found it hard to choose a winner. Apparently I do not have a Simon Cowell streak in me.

But in the end I narrowed it down to two winners.

The first is Dave, with this:

He wins… I don’t know. What would you like to read, Dave? Look at the end of the blog post and take your pick!

And the second is Lena Sbeglia, with this:

She wins my newest book, the non-fiction history/anthropology book How to Protect Yourself against the Evil Eye.

  1. Hi Veronica – I enjoyed being part of your competition.  Thank you for that and just so you know my name is Angela Faia and my e-mail name is Lena Sbeglia (not Leba.  I sent you the info on the Sicilian meet-up where I met Karen.  My parents were both from the city of Palermo and I knew only Sicilian no English until I went to school. And now in my old age I’d like to recapture what I didn’t appreciate growing up.  Regards, Angela
