**9th Bloggaversary Sweepstakes Winners***

So alas... The Sweepstakes is over. And you chicks were in it to win it. I know because,there were over 300 comments. So yes, ya'll were serious. I know it must've taken me a few hours to write out the names of each commenter and to cut everything out. That right there was more than a notion.

There were over 3 pages of names of commenters and texters. So congratulations to you all for hanging in there for over 35 posts. That was some marathon run...

And our beloved Commander By is back from his top secret deployment mission on the West Coast.

Equipped with fists of fury!

Trained in hand to hand combat!

Hands able to annihilate the enemy! Able to sweatlessly incapacitate the enemy with a barrage of one-two punches.

At the same time, he had hands soft and gentle enough to love on his woman...

(Poor By... I have been singing that to him today: "Fists of fury... hands trained in combat... hands gentle enough... to love on his wooooomaaaaan... la la la la oooooooooh!)

Yeah. Sang that to your favorite quiet storm old school beat. Indeed.

And his hands are agile enough to draw the winners of the 9th Bloggaversary Sweepstakes....

So shout in your seat if you see your name! That means you won that money, honey!

First winner drawn!

Congratulations Adrienne... You win for your comment on the 8/13/14 bloggaversary post!

Adrienne had an interesting technique: Don't run the marathon. Come in on the last few posts and take her chances and throw in 3 or 4 comments. I have seen that she has done that before, but this is the first time it has worked to her advantage. Congrats, hon! "Plan Go-and-Sew" worked well for you!

Second winner:
Lisa B!!

Congrats girl!! You win for your comment on the Good Monday Morning post on July 28, 2013!

I noticed Lisa B had an interesting strategy. In the past, she would text. She decided to leave her comments this time in the comment section. (Does she not trust me to record text message comments in the table? Hmm). I also know in the past she said she doesn't comment... just wanted to read and enjoy and text me. (We have good long soul cleansing convos about posts over texts). I remember telling her "Girl, you better go for the money, honey!

I guess she too could see how she could get her groceries, panties and makeup from her local wal-mart if she won. LOL.

This time, she ran "Operation Arkansas runner". She lightly sprinkled comments throughout the marathon run. No she wasn't going for the most comments, which is an automatic winner. She wanted to just get enough in to up her chances! Go girl!

Watch as the Good Commander certifies the winnings with his deadly yet gentle hands.

Thank you Commander By for your hard work (and Thanks for clipping your nails and lotioning your hands... cuz us sisters can't stand an ashy rusty-tailed brother. No sir).

And finally, the winner for most comments:

I counted up the major players. I tell you, your names rained hard all across the comment tallies.  So congrats for hanging in for 35 posts. You all sprinted hard!

I counted up everything and figured out who the top two commenters were... then I counted those again in the final round to make sure I didn't miss a comment.

And here's the tally sheet.

Congrats This One Woman! Go girl! Go girl!!

She said in the beginning when she does this that she just wanted to challenge herself to comment daily. And that she did... and then some! Go girl!

You TOO get a $99 gift card for making the most comments- 42!

So congrats ladies! You can get your shop on at your local Target or Wal-mart! Just shoot me a quick email with your address and choice of store!

And thank you all for not only reading, but participating. I only get to do this twice a year - for bloggaversary and my birthday. And thanks for allowing me to sow some seeds -words in post, and financial- into your lives!

From your friendly neighborhood Original Oldgirl LadyLee.
