I must admit I was a bit disappointed when I didn't place in the top five, until I read the winning entries :) . They were great! And I was excited to be in the top 40 for the first time!

My family's praise and all the wonderful yellow boxes make me a winner every week :thankssign

Once again, there were some fun reads this week. I liked my entry, but didn't really expect to see my name here. What a surprise.

Congratulations to all who placed, and to all who entered!
