And Congratulations to all the winners, and a thanks to all those who provided prizes, (to all those who DID win so they don't need a hug 'cuz they get flowers! Hilarious! )

Special thanks to the Whitingers for sharing their talents to bring this to us and for sharing their darlin' children with us. They do get a hug! Group hug

Congratulations to each & every winner! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

A hearty thank you to each company providing prizes. Thank You! Thank You! I tip my hat to you.

Thanks so much to Dave, Trish & the family for this fabulous site & the never to be forgotten Not-A-Raffle Raffle videos. I just love the videos.
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.

For some reason the video, won't play for me. I even tried to play from the Youtube page and it still will not load. All the others play, but not this one.
