WINNER To Name That Song

I have a winner! And the winner is Finn Howard. Finn knows his music he was determined to win his Mom and himself a present. Finn gave the correct answer last time, but was not the number I called for. Finn kept trying and he won this time.
Since only two bloggers answered correctly last time I, Sweet William The Scot, wanted to mix it up a little. So I said the first one to give me the correct answer wins. All other correct answers go into the fish bowl for a draw for the last tote. Don't worry I put the fish in the toilet to keep him safe. Lee don't flush.
Uh! Oh! I used that to indicate concern, the fish just had a mildly unfortunate event.
My song was "Time in a Bottle" by Jim Croce.
A posthumous Billboard Hot 100 and Cash Box Top 100 Singles chart number-one hit for Jim Croce. It was also a number-one hit on the Billboard Easy Listening chart. The song reached the top spot on the Billboard chart at the end of December 1973, three months after his death in a plane crash. Our clues were the clock and watch in a bottle.  Still were not quite sure, if you enlarged the photo my paw is on September 20th date on the calendar which is the date Jim Croce died.
If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you
Now I have already asked Finn to pick his tote. Finn picked our Blue Daisy tote, his favorite color is blue.
What is inside Finn's tote you ask? I didn't hear you asking!!

So Finn inside the tote you picked I had packed one rope pull toy, one chewy strip, one small windchime and a plastic card. What the heck is a plastic card doing in my tote. Well it is a $15 gift card for you to take your Mommy to Starbucks. Your prize package is worth $25 plus of course you get our 100% organic heavy cotton tote also.
Enjoy, you deserve it Finn. You are a great player of this game.
Now everyone who gave me the correct answer will have their name put into the fish bowl draw for the remaining tote.

They are ~

Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine.

This landed at Lunken Airport last Friday evening and caused a traffic headache for Lee and me getting home.  I saw on the internut the press is charging $6.49 for a glossy picture, (that is really nutty)  feel free to take my picture. If you hit on the picture and enlarge to full screen it is  quite similar likeness shot.  "Believe in America", well I already did!
