I only purchased 2 tickets but hopefully, that will be enough. Have my eye on one of the prizes...but as always, I'd be just as happy to win acorns.

Thanks to the generous sponsors and thanks to NGA for hosting the NARR. Thumbs up

Purchased my tickets, great fun and great prizes by terrific donators!

Whoa!! Slow them horses down!! Blinking

Truly, I do appreciate y'all giving me acorns, but I was not making a plea for acorns folks. Only bought 2 tickets because, well, you only need one ticket to win.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thanks to @kniphofia , @plantladylin, and @robertduval14 for contributing acorns to me.

So here is my offer...
I will give 5 acorns to the next 5 people who need them to buy a NARR ticket. That should settle things fairly. Thumbs up I will edit to add names.
