Feb Rudolph Days Challenge Winner

I am typing this post on my newly restored virus free computer! We have a monthly fee coverage that includes free virus scans and restoring. Boy oh boy, that sure came in handy. This is the third virus we have had in all our years of computer ownership. The first and this time, it was restorable. The middle time, it wiped out the computer and so corrupted the files that they could not even retrieve our photos and downloads. I lost a ton of cutting files!

Now, back to the challenge...
We had 53 3ntries and I will spend tomorrow visiting you all now that my computer is back up and running. It is my birthday today (67) so I will take today off and do as little as possible all day!!! It is a good time to catch up on Netflicks.

We are venturing out of the house and getting supper out at the White Spot (a Canadian restaurant that has an option of ordering and eating in the car from a long tray that slides into the car and hooks onto the window frames around the doors). The food is very tasty, not like a typical eat in the car place!

So, I used random org to draw the winner, # 48 Paperpapier. Could you please drop me an email to with your mailing address, and I will get your prize off to you.
Last months winner will be sent their prize at the same time. My daughter has been too busy with family problems to worry about my mail.

Her mother in law has had some very strange health problems over the past few months. She was finally diagnosed after a friend suggested a specific disease mainly found in persons of Dutch descent, as the friends mother had just been diagnosed with it.

In short, the blood deposits something in the brain that eventually causes mini brain bleeds that leave you with confusion and stroke like syptoms. Sadly, there is no cure. Since Christmas, she now requires someone to be with her 24 hours a day. Although they have someone come in while stepdad is working, my daughter and son in law have her as much as they are available after work and on the weekends, to give Mike's stepdad a bit of respite. I share this story as if you are of Dutch or Icelandic descent and have a family member seeming to age overnight, this info may help you. As my daughter has mail of her own to send, mine will go out with hers. Sorry for any delays this causes, but 'I do not like to put any requests her way at the moment.

It sounds like your birthday dinner was a unique and happy one. I'm glad you were able to have an evening out, even in the middle of the pandemic.
I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's mother-in-law. I hadn't heard of this condition before, but it sounds serious from what I read. The stress and worry on them must be tremendous.
I'm sure you're happy to see February in the rear view mirror, along with all of 2020. What with health problems, COVID, and then computer issues, that's really too much to deal with. congratulations to the winner and thank you for continuing to sponsor these challenges. This last month's card is the only one I've made for my Christmas stack, so I'm already behind!

A real blessing indeed.
