  1. Oo, fun contest, Linda! Let's see, I'll have to guess here. I'll say that the lie is number six. You don't really love chartreuse and have a chartreuse Russel Wright collection. And...thanks for bestowing the award. :) Got my fingers crossed here.

  2. I am going to go with lie number 2. Thanks!

  3. Hi Laura, Krista, and Ron. Thanks for entering my contest. Of course, I can't say if you got the answer correct or not. We'll have to wait until Sunday.

  4. LOL- Thanks, Linda!
    I'm going with number 6 as the lie. I'll put my *ahem* award up on my blog Friday.

  5. Hahaha, Paty! I look forward to your post.

  6. Let's see. I think I'll with number 5 as your lie. Can't wait to find out the answer!

  7. Cool contest Linda :)
    My guess is #1- I twirled a baton throughout high school and part of college.

    Mindy :)

  9. Ooooh, guys, this is soooo fun. Thank you for stopping by Linda, Mindy, and LuAnn.

  10. What a great idea for a contest and better way to get to know you! Smart girl. I'm going to guess #6.

  11. Thanks Linda for this distinguished *grins* award. I will post it on my blog later today and I hope y'all will drop on by to see what I chose as well. *grins*

  12. I think this is so funny - of course it's much more fun since I know the answer, cuz.

  13. I wish I'd had time to join in when Linda sent this to me, but I didn't. Edits! Still not done but wanted to stop in for a moment.

  14. Alana, I'm so glad to see you here! You're very welcome, Dawn! Thanks for not spilling the beans, Anna. Good luck with the edits, Sandy.

  15. LOL! This is quite fun so thanks for including me in the game. Linda: I'm going with number 6--you don't seem much like a 'chartreuse' girl to me (I could be wrong) but my final answer is that #6 is 'the lie'.
    I'm compiling my truths (or are they lies?) as we speak...Mwuahhahahahahahah!

  16. I'd go with #6, Linda. I don't remember you ever wearing the color! :)

  17. I'm going to go with the majority and say No 6 because it just sounds like a fib somehow, LOL!

  18. Edits are done for now, so I'm going to join in. Just to be different, I'm going to say #5 is a lie. lol

  19. Hi Linda. I'm going with 6. Lime green is nice, don't get me wrong...

  20. Do I still get to be in the drawing even if I know the answer...and you know that I do?

  21. I'll guess #6 is the lie. Lime green? Ugh. (Sorry, if it's truly your favorite...)

  22. Thank you Autumn, Terry, Hwyela, Sandy, Mickey, Careese, and Donna for stopping by and leaving a comment. Uh, no Careese, you're excempt from this drawing but will be entered in the monthly ebook drawing.
