Congratulations to 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners ... hope to see photo's of your new plants in the database in the future and congratulations to the Acorn winners too ... more acorns to stash away for future raffles!

The video's get better and better every time! Love the smiles and laughter those beautiful children bring! Baby Rosebud is growing up so fast and is such a pretty girl and oh my, the boys are such cuties! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful family with all of us. Now, get into the air conditioning! Green Grin!

Edited to add: Dave, you look great in those glasses, very studious and professor like.

I'm Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! @ the goodbyes in the video. Such happy fun.

Rosebud is growing SO fast! Blinking Blinking Blinking

As usual, I loved the video. Ha, ha, ha, it was nice to see someone else talking about how hot it is especially out in the sun. Now I don't feel like such a wimp.

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! I'm ecstatic over winning!

I would like to thank Santa Rosa Gardens, Garden Harvest Supply & American Meadows for their generous donations of prizes. I will be happy with any of them.
Thank you Dave & Trish & "the crew" for ATP & the acorn prizes.
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.
