Contest Winner

Just a quick note to let everyone know that the actual retail price of the items in my quick contest was $2.47, and Alia Thabit guessed closest without going over, so I’ll be making a donation to The Covering House in her name today.

I was really touched that there was a whole group of you who wanted to help the donation get there. I think you all get a little sprinkling of good karma for participating, don’t you?

We will play this kind of game again!
