How It Happened

OK, here is how it happened . . . over a month ago my dad entered a contest on Facebook that was sponsored by the local news station.  Dad hardly EVER goes on Facebook! That night they put dad's name on TV and said he won.  But dad NEVER saw it!  So then they kept the prize, just waiting for over a month for dad to come get it.  Then on New Year's Eve a lady said that the prize was sitting there too long so she better call dad on the phone or else give it to someone else.  That's how dad won a 51" plasma TV for me and him and Stanley to watch hockey on!

Happy Happy Happy Day; we are excited that you will get to watch t.v. on a big screen. I never like football on t.v. until we watched it on a big screen here in Colorado and now I love watching it.
We will get a big screen for our new house and I'm sure Hunter will love watching animal planet.
Wags, Noreen & Hunter
