I used an online ran­dom num­ber gen­er­a­tor to pick the win­ner of the $50 Lowes gift card. The give­away goes to Kelly, another mom of two Papil­lons, Betsy and Ella. Con­grat­u­la­tions Kelly!

My brother actu­ally won the first round. But his com­ment wasn’t even the kind of lov­ing com­ment I told all my Face­book friends to leave. I even gave an exam­ple, in case he needed it. But no. What do I get instead?

Roses are rose, vio­lets are vio­let. Bacon.”

I am not clean­ing up his punc­tu­a­tion. And I’m not send­ing him a gift card either. He deserves other types of gifts, like the straight jacket I sent him for Christ­mas one year. Or the horse head in the bed he actu­ally sent me one year.

You can learn more about my brother by fol­low­ing the links on this post.

(Love you, bro.)
