You Folks Are Great
I'm not quite sure how to write this. I have put it off for a couple days now trying to figure it out. I still don't know but, anyway, here goes.
I got an email from Txmom last week asking for my real name and mailing address. She said Winforlife had a "random prize" for me from his anniversary tournament. I, of course, gave her the info and - to be honest - I was hoping for a hat. I think it would be cool to sport the UB colors at the occasional home game that I play. And hey, maybe I could get a little respect and they will quit calling me when I try to steal.
Well, Wednesday I came home from work and there was a box at my front door. Cool, the prize arrived. I opened it up and look what I found. This amazing trophy.
Txmom and Hemi Henry - you two are great. You blew me away. Winforlife told me this was entirely your doing. Thank you.
It is in the living room right now - on the end table. The place of honor in our home. It will eventually find a home on my desk so I can look at it while I am playing poker or writing my stories. But that means I will have to clear a spot for it - not an easy task on my desk.
Folks, I write these stories because I enjoy doing it. But now I realize that you enjoy reading them. That makes it even more fun for me. Thank you all, and . . . . .
