Okay, really, the winner is....

Yes, the winner is....
Deborah Weber from Chicago! Chomp, chomp, chomp...

That's just Guinnias eating the rest of the entry slips up...

I do want to mention that Deborah in many ways is a well deserved winner - not only because she has donated to Guinnias, but also Tony's tooth emergency, and Samuelle's medical needs and Donkey Dreams and more. What else is special is Deborah works as a healer and how appropriate is it that a healer win the raffle here.

"You're not going to say everyone comes out a winner in this, are you?" said a gruff vice over my shoulder.

"Frankie, please, let me finish this..."

"Because everyone isn't a winner in this, most of them are losers, except that one Deborah person." Frankie continued.

"Yes, yes, Frankie, they lost, she won. But they helped Guinnias, so they feel good. They don't need a prize to justify the help they gave us..." I said firmly.

"Hrumph. If you get to the food dish first, you're a winner, get their last, you're a loser. Much better to be a winner," and with that she waddled off.

Now that she's gone...I want to thank you all again. I work with these creatures out of love and a calling to help them. It is on a small scale compared to many, but when emergencies arise like this, it helps to be helped. I know many of you can't have goats and donkeys and such, so it's nice for you to live though the farm this way, and feel like you are helping. And you are.

My husband wonders how much I could collect if he had a boil on his butt that needed lancing! I said, "Hey, any time I post a picture of you in an apron it seems to garner lots of attention, so some nudie close-ups of your bottom might reap a lot."
