kms4meDecember 21, 2008

The contest results were very close. Several of our contestants received second place votes which indicates we had some really good stories contributed. A few of the entries received first and second place votes. BUT one person received two first place votes, and that person is:

WENDY, AKA SASSYBUTTERFLY!

Congratulations to her and thank you to all of you who shared your stories. Thanks to Ronnie, Angela, Sue, and Remy who helped judge the stories.

Happy Holidays to everyone.

Way to go Sassybutterfly, congrats for your win! There was a segment on our news about a purple squirrel. He really was purple! Apparently he had eaten parts of an ink cartridge that turned his skin purple. As I was watching the piece, I thought about your squirrel, imagining a colored squirrel chunking nuts at you. LOL.

Wendy,

I am glad you like the selection of seeds. When I started the contest I wanted to offer several tempting things in hopes of getting great stories, and I think the results speak for themselves.

I am hoping that someone else will start a new contest...
