WOOAH... Rudoph,Dasher and Dancer,pPrancer...
.. A Christmas miracle in Texas just occured ~~~ LOOK up then swoop down into that little Texas town.There's a hard drive down there with a winning image in it that has copyright attached to it.with the name Murry Grigsby... I know that he was a good boy this year and worked real hard for it.
I think that Mr.GRigsby deserves a big pat on on his back from Santa himself and a kiss from Pat and all of his betterphoto friends too..We'll have to pick them all up and deliver them to him all giftwrapped and ready for kisses on Christmas day. See ya on Christmas Murry; Santa~

MURRY ,Congratulations on your big GRAND PRIZE!!!. THat's a gift that we'll all enjoy and learn from all year round. YOU DID A TREMENDOUS JOB!! HAve a holly,jolly, holiday and keep up your great work and spirit in the years to com.
Love ya, DOnnarae~
I am exceedingly happy for you, Murry! YOU DID A WONDERFUL JOB... WOOOZER FOR YOU..
