Day 5 with Rhonda Vincent

bananaHere is is December 18, the 5th day of our 12 Days of Christmas with Rhonda Vincent.

Today’s winner, Daniel Houseright of Kingsport, TN, will receive all the prizes shown below, plus a Bluegrass Today cap and t-shirt.

When notified that he had won, Daniel sent this message along to Rhonda on Facebook:

day5“Thank you for the prize pack I won today. Big fan, catch you every year at Dumplin Valley…. live in Kingsport which is near Elizabethton, have jammed with Hunter at different places over the years. I have all your CDs so I guess these will be stocking syuffers. Thanks again and see ya soon.”

Don’t forget that even though the giveaways have begun, you can still enter to win; one entry per household, per day, will be permitted. Winners will be drawn daily through Christmas Day, when one lucky reader will receive an iPad 3.

Rhonda has a lot of fun stuff for us today: the answer to yesterday’s What’s Missing challenge, and her recipe for Banana Nut Bread.

missingDid you try to find 24 missing items in yesterday’s photos? If not, check over there first, before examining this photo.

In addition to the items in the photo, the following were changed in the second photo:

  • the blind is up
  • the mixer is unplugged
  • the paper towels are gone

Did you get them all?
