A bad poem, a winner and more giveaways...whew!

‘Twas the night before vacation and all through our place
We’re scrambling around at a hurried pace
The suitcases are packed and next to the door
In hopes that Mag can squeeze in just one thing more

With Bug sleeping soundly--we hope through the night
We’ll be ready for our journey in the morning light
With many states between here and the shore
Driving will--at times--be a chore

But as we press on I can hear Donnie shout
We’ve passed Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey--hi Bruce!
And through it all we're sharing our snacks and some juice
Now to New York, Connecticut and soon to the Cape
We're getting so close I can hardly wait!

So to all a goodnight and happy dreams to each
I’m off to say prayers that I’ll soon hit the beach

(Sorry, but that's what you get when I wake up at 4am and am working on holiday promos at my job.) And now that you've suffered through that...Blueviolet at A Nut in a Nutshell , you won the giveaway! Email me and let me know what size tee you want and where I should send the package.

AND...as promised...here are two more giveaways:
