9 was Deb On Wheels! Congrats and just know while I am thrilled for Deb I wish I had glasses for everyone. So send me your address!

Today someone�� asked me�� if I liked�� you all.

"Ha!�� That's funny!! �� I freakin' LOVE�� all these chicks!! �� Their funny, caring, crazy as heck, sweet, beautiful,they love God, and their family,they are reading this email�� right now.......... & I love them all!!"

And dear friends - I am going to do something you might think is a bit weird - which is not unusual for Chatty. Just ask my family...

I'm going to send each and every one of you who left a comment, are one of my followers, AND who did not win - a very tiny gift in the mail - a consolation prize! Believe it or not I am.

So if you played, follow me, and did not win - send me your address. Yes really! I ALREADY HAVE THE GIFTS. Now they are not BIG gifts, but I think they are cute ones.

So thank you to my Vitamin F's! And I mean this - you guys are my friends.

I recently saw a quote that said, "The best thing you can have is a friend. The best thing you can be is a friend."

You, my dear, have it both ways. What a sweet idea to give a gift to everyone.

Have a wonderful day.

OK, I happened to notice that Debbie won another giveaway on another blog. Now she's won here, too?? (I think she's rigging the results, just sayin')

As much as it disappoints me to have missed out on the *chick* glasses, I think it's VERY nice of you to give all of us something. As if your lovely blog, and wonderful personality weren't enough!
