The Grand Poopbah Prize Winner!

Maria sends hugs, and demonstrates on her great grandaughter Lindy Loo

We've had a very scientific method for drawing all the other winners for the blog-o-versary reader appreciation give aways. I had a bunch of little pieces of paper with numbers written on them and I put them n a bag ( a POOP bag, of course) and shook it up and picked a number. The writer of the corresponding comment (say, the 6th one down if I drew #6) won the prize. No corruption or graft.

Tonight it is late, and I needed to announce the prize, but I'm in bed with the laptop (and Very Old Dog and Bill) and the poop bag of numbers is in the sewing/computer room.

So I said, "Bill, are you asleep?"

And Bill said, "S.N.O.R.E."

And I said, "Bill, are you asleep?"

And Bill said, "Hnmunmpgh?"

And I said, "Hey, honey, are you awake?"

And he said, "Yes. I am now."

So I said, "Oh, good, I was afraid maybe you had fallen asleep already. Can you pick a number between one and thirty-five, please?"

And Bill squinted one eye barely open and looked at me like I had asked him to stand at the podium and recite 'Mary had a little lamb' at the next City Commissioners meeting, and said, "What?"

I said, sweetly, "Just pick a number between one and thirty-five. That's all."

And Bill said, "Seven."

So PeachMelba is the winner of the Grand Poopbah Prizes!!! Woo - HOOOOOO! Congrats to you!!!
