We have a winner!
But first, pics of the drawing.
This first picture here is of all of the lottery cards that were entered in the drawing. (Note: I used old business cards of mine as lottery tickets, so they’d all have the same weight and shape.)
Look at all them cards!
Second pic is of Alan shuffling a portion of the cards. Yes, folks, we trained in Vegas.
This pic is the big moment. Alan (my husband, and the official “drawer”) has not only closed his eyes to insure impartiality–he’s taken off his glasses!
Alan has pulled the winning card…
And it’s Melanie (Lasoff) Levs!!!
Big congrats to Melanie, who must email me her address by midnight tomorrow, May 5th.
And thank you so, so much for everyone else who entered. I loved reading y’alls haikus, plus your thoughts on gratitude, s’mores, peeps, Peeps, favorite foods from childhood, unorthodox foods, mom’s names, etc. etc.
And keep checking in with me. Next week I’m running another contest, giving away a copy of my friend Sandra Novack’s excellent first novel, Precious.
Ciao for now.
