Congratulations to all! and me and Betty and Billy and Bobby want to thank the judges. I must admit the grammarian in me made this one very difficult to write. I enjoyed very much the ones by others that I read.

Re: Winners for GROCERIES

Re: Winners for GROCERIES

Thanks so much for your observant eye, Shann. I had hurriedly checked the EC winners and didn't find me there--till you pointed this out. I'll take 9th OR 10th place with great pleasure.

Congratulations to all the happy dancers!
