Wow, gonna go check my oak tree and count my acorns to 'buy' some tickets. Y'all know how much I love to win acorns!! Hurray! Hurray!

(Okay, truth be told, as I am sitting here with my dog sleeping at my feet my mind was elsewhere, not thinking about acorns or N-A-R-R prizes...
I was really thinking, "This dog could use some Beano". *Blush* Rolling on the floor laughing )

Oh boy, acorns! Yippe, generous vendors! Hurray!

@greene I know of what you speak, seems our doggie needs Beano quite often and it's usually when he's sitting next to me. I always tell him to go sit by daddy. Rolling on the floor laughing

I always get 1 ticket. I'm not known for having good luck, but you know that old saying, "You can't win if you don't get a ticket!" So ....

Always nice of the vendors to donate some great prizes! Good luck to all !

Yes, it's a new thing Marilyn to give people more time to realize it & buy tickets. It also serves to give one more time to earn more tickets if they need them.
