Congratulations everyone!

What a pleasant surprise to see my name up there... wow! I have really learned not to care (most of the time) so when I do place either now or later (been a long time since I placed now, meaning in the morning post of winners) I'm just thrilled. And this morning seeing my placement, I'm especially thrilled! Thank you, judges!!!

Hugs,
Pamela

Oh my gosh....you could blow me over. I was just hoping to place this time even though I kind of knew it was a good one.

Judges: Thanks so much for the honor.

Everyone at the conference will recognize me as the one walking around with her mouth hanging open....

Kathryn - I'm PRETTY sure that will not be a distinctive characteristic at the conference. We'll all be so excited to SEE people that a CLOSED mouth might make you stand out more.

And CONGRATS - I do believe I forgot to woowoo you! :D

:clap :clap :clap Congratulations to all the writers who placed - it's nice to see some new as well as familiar names up there. Special shout out to PhilsJewel and Sir William in that regard. Enjoyed all these stories and more that haven't been recognized yet. I was stumped by this theme, but you showed it could be tackled and done well
