Thank you all for your warm wishes!! Your notes sound like youíre almost as happy as I am 0) I honestly never thought this would happen to me so I may rethink buying some of those LOTTO tickets. Congratulations to everyone that posted, to all the finalists and to all the other terrific winners. Iím honored to be among such great photographers!! #988597
