    I have enjoyed your posts. Your generosity in time and gifts is awesome. I enjoyed learning more about your family, Guthrie and new techniques and patterns. I, too, raised 4 sons who were swimmers in Oklahoma, one of them swam in The Rio Olympics and represented the USA, David Plummer. Swimming is such a great sport.
    I love your shop, Merry Christmas!

      Congratulations Kathy! You’ve won a $20 gift card. You are the ultimate swim mom! The kids on my son’s team (KMSC) were cheering for your son during the Olympics. He is such an inspiration to them all. Merry Christmas!

    Your 24 days has become a wonderful tradition I look forward to. The stories, recipes, give a ways and discovering what some of your quirky-great finds were (like chewy red hots ). I was sorry to read your father passed, holidays are a bit empty without those we love and cherish, but we push ahead anyway and treasure the memories. And I have to say, I have never once pictured you on a farm, lol. It will be fun to hear how your live unfolds with this new adventure. The shop has come a long way, I remember that hole in the floor! Have a great holiday season.
