I laughed through the whole video! The kiddos are always a hoot, as is Dave! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Thumbs up

Well, it looks like I just broke my "never win anything" streak! I am writing THIS date on my calendar! I should go play the Florida lotto today, too! Or should I have done that yesterday since my name was drawn yesterday and announced today. Sticking tongue out Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

Congrats to all the winners! And a BIG Thank You to all the vendors donating prizes! This was a BIG raffle with so many winners!

I decided if I ever placed in any of the raffles, that I would not play again the following raffle to give others a chance to win, too.

I had 2 articles published a short while ago (actually one was a re-published article), so I bought 10 tickets for this raffle from the acorns I earned from those articles. The rest of my earned acorns I've been giving away. I love seeing folks win and was certainly not expecting to win myself, so imagine my surprise .... Smiling

Thank you! Thank You!

I hadn't caught that. Sorry to learn this. The good news is there are LOTS of other great prizes, too. Santa Rosa Gardens would be a great fit for your climate.
