FABULOUS image, Susan! I can totally appreciate the face pain dilemma. I was like that when I got the POTD and was screaming thru the house. When I opened up the email today about the win, it was 5am, so had to keep my excitement to myself so as not to wake the whole house.
SUPER congrats on your first (of many, I'm sure) Gold!

Nadine, Laurie, Lee, Susan, Nancy, Claudia, Datha and RC, thank you so much! Your kind words mean the world to me :)

Lee, you are wise, I believe, beyond your three hundred and thirty three years!!! I never thought about the energy and magic of "3" before. I hadn't even made the connection of the three clocks in your winning image. Wow! You have an exceptional vision and thank you for sharing it with me :)
