Manowarplayer, you are such a sweet guy for doing this every year. I was thrilled to win last year, as you know - I don't tend to keep things hidden that well! My life has been so busy and crazy over the last year. Part of it involved a divorce from a man who makes pretty decent money to going back to supporting myself (and the kids, half the time) on my meager salary in comparison. It's a big change, but I've been frugal before and I do believe that money really doesn't buy you happiness.
It was, however, a wonderful treat for me to receive a new game last year. And I was expecting a new-to-me game, not a brand new, unpunched game! And did you know that I love punching and bagging new games? So it was a double present for me. So timely and so appreciated, and all because of you and your generosity.
So thank you so very much. And I hope this year's winner gets as much delight from their gift from you as well. Happy, happy holidays to you!
