And the winner is....

It's time to announce the winner of the Smalltown Mom Share-The-Luck Fall Giveaway! Here's my old-school random drawing. The entrants:In lieu of a hat, I put the slips in a beautiful wine glass:

They were stirred, not shaken. Then Ernest drew the winner. (I should have rotated the photo before I uploaded it. Oops. However, I have been politely asked not to upload any more photos this evening because they cause lag when two certain people are trying to play their new Wrath of the Litch King WoW expansion. Since they were polite, I'm leaving it alone.)
Look, his eyes are closed. His other hand is still playing Wow.
And the winner is: Louise, of Potted Frog. Louise, e-mail me with your mailing name and address! smalltownmomblog (at) yahoo (dot) com

The ultimate package is still mostly a surprise to you as well as me, but it will be finalized by this weekend and definitely WILL include chocolate and other items made or obtained nearby, in keeping with my desire to shop locally.

But I am having a difficult decision over the chocolate: Louise, do you want a box of the See's Seasonal Pie Truffles that I raved about? (BTW, I just realized you were the only comment on that post. Is this good karma or what?) Or would you like a box of scrumptious assorted chocolates made 3 blocks from my house? Your choice, just let me know ASAP. Before I eat them all! And don't worry. Whichever one you don't pick will still be gobbled up.

And that made me remember how much fun I had with my only other giveaway, which was a pay-it-forward thingie. So I'm definitely doing a holiday giveaway in December AND I am planning a large book giveaway on my book blog. Details to be posted later!

Lucky Louise.

Oh, I'm so excited! (jumping up and down, screaming as loud are her laryngis-ridden voice will allow)

You do not understand that I. NEVER. WIN. ANYTHING. NEEEV.R!

Thank you! Thank you! (It's hard to type when jumping up and down.)

I'll e-mail you after I finish commenting...

1) You have beautiful handwriting. (When I did my giveaway, I had to type them into a document and print so they would be legible enough to read--even for me to read.)

2) The rotating photo commentary made me laugh out loud. (As loud as a laryngitis-ridden voice can laugh.)

3) I am quite impressed at Ernest's AMAZING skills of drawing a name (specifically mine) while still play.... I'm looking.... Litch King WoW expansion. (??)

4) Truffles. I'm a truffle fanatic, and I LOVE seasonal ones.

5) Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!!!!! (grinning ear-to-ear--much easier than trying to make sounds come out of this throat)
