I sure hope we still will get a video next month? Maybe a Whitinger Christmas?
I so love the videos, and look forward to them each month.

I am so excited about being a winner of a prize. All of the prizes are wonderful, but I had to go for the one from Trish's store. Hurray!

I have to say Vic, that I was laughing out loud when Dave started talking about the junk car. Rolling on the floor laughing

Blast, darn, drat...hmph...(Note to self: Five not-a-raffle tickets are not enough; 'buy' more tickets next time.)
Okay I got that out of my system.

Congratulations to all the winners!!! Hurray! I am happy for each and every one of you!!! Hurray!

I made my own apron (as a gift for my dear daughter), now I guess I will go buy my own soap. Or maybe I could make some?
Now where did I put that recipe?

I was interested to learn that one of the top winners only bought 2 tickets! My response to them when they told me was that every ticket really is a chance to win! Smiling

Greene, for the daylily not-a-raffle, I spent every acorn I had, and came up empty (that was at least 10 tickets, maybe more). This one, I bought TWO tickets. And I won. It's just the luck of the draw, and more does not always equal a better chance, crazy as it sounds.

so keep buying your tickets, because one day it will be YOUR turn to be stunned and amazed at the drawing results. Thumbs up Group hug

Well I've been shunned and dazed and even punned and praised, but...Stunned and amazed...wonder what that feels like.

See, I can have fun even if I don't win.
