There were 607 tickets bought by 45 different members. I wish we had a prize for every member but that's not how raffles work! Mr. Raffle Boy was a little sleepy still and had some trouble remembering how this works, but at least we had fun regardless. Enjoy the video:

Here is the video:



Congratulations to valleylynn for winning the painting, and to goldfinch4 for 2nd place and LarryR for third place.

Thank you to Sharon and jmorth for so generously hosting this month's raffle, our biggest one yet!!!

That was actually the third time we tried filming the drawing! The first two times we spent 3 minutes each trying to get him to draw a paper and he never would! So we finally decided to give it a third try and if he wouldn't do it, I would do it. So, maybe he'll do better next time. Smiling

Congratulations to all the winners! What great fun this has been. The painting was fun to do and when Jmorth added the gloriosas, it just added to the excitement. Thanks J, those gloriosas are just simply beautiful.

And thanks to those of you who bought tickets! Maybe we can do it again sometime. Smiling

Dave, thanks to you and Trish so much.
This is a such good place to be.

Congratulations Lynn, Chris & Larry! That IS weird that Lynn & Chris hosted the last raffle/not a raffle & they both won this time! Karma. Good Karma. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Thank you Sharon & John for hosting this months fun & providing such irresistible prizes! I tip my hat to you.

And thank you little man for entertaining us all & being such a good sport & letting daddy use your toes for note storage. You are a little Angel

He sure was fascinated with that handle & how it worked. Maybe he's going to be a mechanic or an engineer.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Raffle Boy appears to be on strike, but thank you, Raffle Man, for taking over.

Congratulations, Lynn, Chris, and Larry. Thanks to Sharon and Jmorth for contributing such wonderful prizes. I love these not-a-raffle raffles!

Woofie, you're on my list for using "fun" as an adjective. You know I hate that! Green Grin!
