A Puzzle and a Prize

Today is my birthday!

To celebrate it the Luapula police force will be holding a ball in my honor tonight.
I'm just kidding. But, the annual Police Ball is happening tonight and Tom and I will be attending. Not only will we be attending but we have prepared a ballroom-esque dance to perform at some point in the evening. We've been practicing hard and long for this moment. Neither of us really have any training and so the choreography might be interesting. I promise to fill you in on all the details no matter how mortifying.

Now, since it's my special day, I want to play a little game with you. 

In April, I bought one of my all time favorite movies but decided to keep it tucked away until my birthday as a gift to myself. I've had it on my T-shirt shelf all these months and have been nearly tingling with anticipation as my day drew ever closer.

This movie stars Robert Redford and Paul Newman (can hardly get any better than that!). It won 7 Academy awards. It is over two hours long. It is also as old as I am.

So, can you guess the movie?

If you guess correctly you will be entered in my giveaway. I will send you a 2 yard piece of African cloth if your entry is randomly selected. 

You get extra entries if you are a follower of this blog or the Kazembe Orphanage Facebook page. Leave me a comment for either of those options. The contest ends on Monday 5 PM PST. I will announce the winner on Tuesday's blog post. You must leave an email address so I can contact you. This contest is open to any and all*. Have fun!

*Well, all but my children who know exactly what movie is sitting on my shelf right now....

Exactly One Year Ago: Happy Birthday to Me!

  6. Happy Birthday, young lady! I'm old enough to have seen "The Sting" when it was playing in theaters! But my favorite Redford-Newman movie was four years earlier--"Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"! Hope you videotape your dance for us! :-)

  11. Sorry I'm a day late, but Happy Birthday. I have seen the Sting and you will love it, it's a great movie that only works once because all the surprises are gone after the first time. I hope you had a great day, a lovely dance, and enjoyed your movie. Judy

  15. Absolutely has to be The Sting. Great flick -- would you believe that I found that movie down here in a basket of discounted DVDs -- everything was marked at $2 or $3 (US price) because they were pure English -- no Spanish subtitles even.

    Do post photos of the ball!!! :^)
