Hey, thanks for everyone who visited and those who¬†played Pick¬†Your Favorite¬†Dragon in my Appreciate a Dragon Day contest & giveaway!¬† Diana was the obvious favorite, although the Medieval Mars dragon got a vote and my son wanted to vote for Duck’s friend Dragon if I had let him enter the drawing, which I didn’t.¬† He has all of my books already. ūüôā¬† Anyway, I used a Random Number Generator from Google and it chose the number 2, which means that the second¬†commenter (Lori)¬†is the winner!¬† Congratulations and thanks again everyone who played!
