Way to go winners. Let me know who will be receiving the iris from my garden. As to the Paul2032....Paul is my name and 2032 was part of an old telephone number which I supposed to be able to remember easily, It was typed incorrectly so means nothing. Shrug!

Congratulations winners!!!! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!


And thank you Paul & IrisloverDee for the generous prizes. That was very thoughtful of you two.

And thank you Dave for the 3 additional prizes of acorns.

Thanks Dave & Trish & Raffle Boy for a job well done. I don't know why but I happened to think, "Oooo, what if raffle boy pulls those pieces of paper out from between his piggies real quick & gets a paper cut. Ouch!" He's growing up so fast. And Bibi --- talking already! He was only born yesterday, I swear! I believe he said "dada" immediately after filming. Isn't that always the way?

Waiting impatiently for next months raffle not a raffle......
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.
