I have it on confidence that she has made her decision and is contacting the two lucky co-winners as we speak. She'll let us know here when she's done with that. Smiling

I think this way of choosing 2nd and 3rd place is really fun! But I have a question: does she have to choose from someone who actually bought a ticket, or can it be just anyone?

Oops, too late! But I still wonder, in case we do this again?

Oh Oh Oh Oh . . . I've never used this little guy before: Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Never won anything before either. Vic, I wasn't teasing about the 'love you' part up there, thank you so much! And I shall have zinnias and California poppies and sunflowers - first things that caught my eye! Can't wait, can't wait! Feels like Christmas all over again, maybe even better.

Wow. Whew.

I agree Lynn!

woofie, she could have chosen anyone to get the other boxes. I didn't even tell her who else bought tickets, lest it cloud her decision. Smiling
