Your Challenge: Name the Lions

We’ve heard of famous duos: Laurel & Hardy, Abbot & Costello, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Or trios like “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.”

So what would you name this group of lions: Panting, Drooling, and Licking?

Today’s post is actually number 800! Not 8 or 80, but 800! I’ve been doing this a long time. Thank you to all the readers out there who have joined me in this journey.

As a thank you, today’s post has a contest element. The best trio of names for the lions will win a prize: a digital (ebook) copy of one of my books–you get to choose. If you live in the continental US, I can send you a paperback instead, if you’d prefer. Contest ends on March 30 at midnight PST. My neighbors Karen and David will be the judges (both talented writers and lovers of Venice).

I hope you send lots of entries and ideas! Send some love, too! Writing 800 blog posts is some sort of achievement and worth celebrating.

March 31: The judges have ruled….and the winner is: Harpo, Groucho, and Chico! Thanks to all contestants. Valerie, I’ll be in contact so you can choose your prize–one of my books!

    The other challenge: Where are these lions?

    • Haha! That’s quite challenging. I saw them on one of my wanderings in the city from a few years ago and now have no idea! Maybe one of the readers out there knows their location? I have a vague recollection that they might be near S M Formosa….
