                         A $75 AMAZON GIFT VOUCHER! WOO-HOO!

Now you know what that means, dontcha? One guess? Anybody? Yes, my TBR pile has just skyrocketed==================== WHOOSH=============

                                    THANK YOU DL!!

    …who scored 6 votes for her “whacky” definition of the word slumgullion! Congratulations Nancy! And since the letter "S" is 19th in the alphabet, that means Nancy's hamper will contain 19 units/items…

                         …..AND THAT'S A WRAP!

      So true DL! And that's why I have NO chance of winning the lottery. I don't play it! 🙂

  15. Hilary on May 11, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    Hi Michelle congratulations on winning – what a treat.

    Your A-Z was great fun .. just sorry I was so late to the party .. and congratulations to Nancy for her definition of slumgullion (except I wanted to type 'slugmullion' … could be a good story there … 


    Cheers and happy weekend … Hilary

    • Michelle Wallace on May 12, 2013 at 7:34 am

      There could be a great story there, Hilary… "slugmullion" lends itself to all kinds of wonderful and whacky possibilities…
