In honor of Dave and all of the magnificent work that he does, I will be gifting 10 acorns each to the first ten people who reply to my thread and ask for them! I wish I had more acorns to give but I have been planting a few dozen all summer long in the forums!
It would be great if newcomers would apply but in light of the fact that this great event has returned, first ten "asks" get the acorns!!
Good luck to everyone and ten acorns will get you two tickets. All it takes is ONE!!

Okay everyone, correction. A generous benefactor has stepped up and gifted me a bunch of oak tree nuggets. I will give away acorns until they run out and thanks to him, that will NOT be anytime soon!
Again, good luck everyone! Lovey dubby

So nice to share. I don't do the raffles but also don't care for the exclusion factor so tip toe away.
