  8. WOW!  I am so excited.  Thank you and the judges so much from my heart.  I'll post it in my sidebar immediately.  I'm very, very proud and honored to have it.  I read Val's entry that day, took a moment of silence and prayed for wisdom and instantly, that was the sentence that came to my mind.  Appropriate?  I thought so.

    Happy Birthday to the sweet grandbaby!  I know how precious they are having some myself and the priviledge to raise one, now four years old.  They grow up too fast.  Looking forward to pictures.  

    Sincere thanks again,

  12. Nelishia's sentence is awesome. Kudos Nelishia!

  13. Am I the only one who noticed the winner's letters go DWTC and the other submisstions are in the order of DWCT?

  14. I didn't notice
    I'm glad someone did
    I demand a recount!

  15. I have to say, "Doomed warrriors chased the Huns southward" is by far the most literary.

  16. Looks like makemarc is correct.  Judges goofed!
