Christmas Prize

"It's a grand prize... 'frah-gee-lay' it must be Italian!"

It wasn't a "grand" prize, and it's not a leg lamp, but I did win something.
J.D. at Get Rich Slowly posted a fine article all about saving money for the holidays. He asked readers to submit their best holiday money saving ideas.

I commented on how our family is writing a chapter of our history. We'll pick different topics, and each of us will submit a little something on it. This year, we're all writing about how we met our spouse.

I love when we do this, especially a year (or years) later when I look at writings I'd forgotten about. One year, we exchanged our favorite recipes and wrote a food-related memory. In re-reading those, I'm getting hungry for my sister-in-laws cooking. She had so many good-looking recipes!

J.D. and his wife liked my idea, and awarded me with a one year subscription to Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine. Hurray!

    I forgot about the recipes! I was wondering what ever came of that. I remember Lyric asking for us to submit them and then I never heard anything more about it. Did she send them to everyone through e-mail? Forward me a copy if you have one! I would really like to have all of those!

    I probably had everyone submit and then didn't get to doing what I planned to with it.
    Sounds like me.
    Sigh.
