  1. Wow! Thank you! Congrats, Shirley and Pat Garcia!

    I’ll have to trust my intuition more from now on, since I guessed at 99% of them. Now if we’d had that blogging challenge before the game, it would have been easier to guess at the answers. Great game! Fun details! And thank you, Holiday Pubs Sponsors, for the gift card!

  2. Hello Y’all,
    Thank you. I didn’t even think I had a chance. This is amazing. I have to repeat what Shirley said. I never win anything so I didn’t expect to even be anywhere close in the race.
