The Great Experiment: Childhood Memory

Congratulations Norma from November Juliet! You just won $135!

Seventeen entries this time around! Is it getting to be too many to read? Should we change up the rules again? If it gets any bigger I'm not sure where to take it because I don't want it to get too time consuming to read all the entries. Larger entry fee? First twenty people to enter are in? All ideas are welcome.

Because so many folks entered this time I'm just going to leave voting up all weekend. Voting closes on Sunday night at midnight, which is technically Monday morning. That gives you all weekend to read and vote. And leave the good people some comments! Comments are nice! Get to know each other. That IS kind of the point. And the money ain't so bad either. Remember, only one vote per IP address. Thanks for playing everyone! Am so excited so many people entered.

Good luck! In no particular order:

1. Shelly - Hair Bows and Guitar Picks

2. Anne - Annabelle Speaks

3. Wyndi - Wycked Texan

4. Barbara - Barboletas

5. Misc Momma - Miscellaneous Momma

6. Digital Bath - SlobberTrauma

7. Crummy Mummy - Crummy Mummy(Who Drinks)

8. Livia - Yes, That Was Me

9. Damien - Spawny's Space

10. Sara - Saradigm
