Winner Announced!

We are happy to announce the winner of our little contest. It is our friend Sandy! We will be shipping it out this week. Now the story behind this plant. What you can't tell from the picture is that the pot is only about an inch across. The plant is about 8" high. It spends about half it's life floating in a bowl with the pot off. Not sure how it has survived the neglect and abuse. We got this plant about two and a half years ago (July 2007) when our friend Davis moved from Ohio to Texas. When he lived here in Ohio he spent time everyday at our house for almost four years. We could have used him as a tax write-off. He became a part of our family.

We had a 'going away' party for him and in the center of the tables were these little plants. We took two home and so far have only been able to kill one. Davis returned this summer for a very brief visit on his honeymoon trip. We got to meet his beautiful wife Christina. They would appreciate prayer as she has been very sick (nauseated) during her pregnancy - she's due in April, and still is very ill with 'morning sickness'.

Why the picture of Dallas? My DH constantly calls the dog Davis instead of Dallas. I think it is the first 'D' name that pops into his head. He loves it when 'Davis' greets him at the gate in the evening. Or when the pup miss behaves it is 'Davis' that gets yelled at. The most interesting and humorous moments occurred when 'Davis' got fixed, we had him neutered. I wonder what Christina would think about that? He He.
