I won a color TV at a volunteer banquet and gave it to my grandson because his was broken.

With God all things are possible.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass;
It's about learning to dance in the rain.
I am still living on the green side of the grass!

I won $50 in a radio call-in contest once. I also won a red ribbon for one of my afghans at the Sonoma County fair.

I won a pair of Hartford Wolfpack hockey tickets in a radio contest, then at the game they picked my seat to win a $50 gift certificate to a local jewelry store-I bought a little gold crucifix that I still have.

I've won Employee of the Month a couple of times and Employee of the Quarter. I've also won several drawings throughout the years.

Oh I forgot...when my oldest son was 5 yrs old, the local UHF channel had a kiddie show and they were giving away tickets to an amusement park called Dutch Wonderland. I remember my neighbor at the time...she mailed it 2 dozen post cards to try to win. I mailed in just one...and I was the winner! She was pretty mad about that.But I was thrilled to win those 4 tickets. My two sons and I went, along with my cousin and had a blast.

Iwon concert tickets from a radio station when I was in middle school. Not to brag too much, but my daughter won a nation-wide art contest when she was in 3rd grade.

Over the years I have won various things. Most recently I have won drawings from several of my favorite authors~~~autographed books, etc but the best was a $250 jeweled music box. And it did cost that much as I googled it. LOL

Employee of the month and employee of the year. I also left my name in a gift shop several years ago and won a basket of goodies.

I won a poetry contest as a teen. The prize was just having my poem printed in the school newspaper, although I made them say it was by "anonymous".

I've won Employee of the Month at just about every job I've ever had.

No, but my husband won a Brewer jacket. They announced his name on TV during a game and pronounced it wrong....we just looked at each other and laughed, not knowing for sure if it was him. The jacket showed up a couple of weeks later and we realized it was him!!

Yes. A patio table and chairs ... they were nice. A set of toys when I was a child ... we thought we were the best kids in the neighborhood! Assorted free stuff online from time to time.
