B - ABC Wednesday -B - I WON!

ABC Wednesday is now in its 12th round.  Click on the logo to view posts by many other bloggers!

This week, we celebrate the letter:

Some time Before Christmas,
after a run through the house,
I sprang to my computer
just as quiet as a mouse ...

When what to my wondering eye
should appear
But a post by C (Carolyn) Binder -
told of Give-way Cheer!

(SG note: To view Carolyn Binder's post ("Ten Days of Holiday Giveaways for Gardeners") of  December 9, 2012  --- click the date). 

 The temptation to enter?   
Too great to resist.
I typed a short comment, 
crossed my fingers, and then . . . 

. . . performed "Christmas Business,"
Giving nary a thought to the contest 
I'd entered --- and yet,
Bless My Soul, an e-mail.

'Twas an e-mail from Carolyn.
The great contest spinner ... 
an e-mail that stated, get this!
I was a WINNER!

By Gosh and By Golly,
I was truly Jolly!
But the nicest of all ---
a Beautiful prize by Steve Asbell

I received his Epiphyllum Burst last week.
