Nancy Drew, Last day!

The end of Nancy Drew week!

This has been SO fun. Thanks everybody for stopping by. Special thanks to Sarai, Katie(babs), Ellen, Kim, Tracy and Jenn Fisher for their very fun and excellent contributions! 

Okay, I'm racing to catch my train to go out of town, so I'm going to pick contest winners either later tonight when I get to my destination (Pewaukee Wisconsin!) Or bright and early Saturday morning. Because you know, I still do the ripped up names on paper things which is time intensive!!

Up for grabs: The fabulous tote, the hilarious and possibly signed Clues for Real Life book, and the amazing $15 gift certificate! (Details at the end of day 3 post)

I want to close with a passage from Nancy's Mysterious Letter that I thought was really sweet.

At the end, somebody asks Ned and Nancy if they are detectives.
The young people began to laugh, then Ned said, “I’m not, but Nancy Drew is the best girl detective in the whole world!”

“Don’t you believe him,” Nancy said quickly. “I have solved some mysteries, I’ll admit, and I enjoy it, too, but I’m sure there are many other girls who could do the same.”

Oh contraire, Nancy! I'm sure no one can do it with such finesse - and mostly in heels! :)

This was a fantastic week CJ. You did a great job and it was a ton of fun!

You did an amazing job hosting Nancy Drew week. I'm sorry I didn't participate or comment much... but I was reading along. :)

You & LB are meeting up this weekend? Awesome. :)

This was the best Nancy Drew ever! The memories and happiness. It was perfect! You did it better than perfect!

That last quote was the key phrase of why I love Nancy Drew. It made me feel like I could too!

*hugs*

Argh! So here I make some comment about wanting to contribute, but because of internet issues @ home, I couldn't. *sniffle* I feel the need to do a Trixie Belden themed week now. Any of y'all read these? I LOVED Trixie. :)

Aww, I kind of missed it too. I completely lurrrved ND as a kid and was really disappointed with all the revisions. I liked the old ones! I liked the roadster!

I remember reading about the Syndicate in jr high or so and being completely fascinated by the process.
