Woo-Hoo, I won a raffle prize

The merchants who sponsored the "Dude its only a Mile" fundraising walk and run in our neighborhood also had a raffle for prizes. First come, first pick of what was offered. I entered via email and won so I picked up a gift certificate for a free office visit at our vet! Poodle Princess has her annual visit in December so this is wonderful.

Last time I remember winning anything was when I was 8 years old and won a small homemade wooden sailboat from a local lumberyard. I had gone on an errand with my Dad and filled out the form and put it in the box and was thrilled to win. My lovely Dad hauled that little boat along with the kayak he and my brother had built whenever we went on picnics at a park with a lake. Even the adults tried it out and I remember my brother rigging a tow line from the kayak to the little sailboat to pull me around since it wasn't exactly sail worthy.

This prize won't provide such happy times and lovely memories, but I am a happy camper none the less.

What is the best thing you ever won?
