We Have A Winner!

The results are in and have been verified by the law firm of Dewey, cheatem and Howe.  We have a winner in the "Guess the Amount of Money in the Milk Jug" contest.

We had 19 responses, from a low guess of $40.86 to a high of $420.  Thank you to all my friends who participated.  It has been fun to watch the estimates come in.  Several of you came pretty close, but the winner was only $4.27 off!

The total amount of coinage in the jug was $256.79.

The winner is Norma, of Waco, Texas, who guessed $252.52

Congratulations, Norma!  Enjoy your Starbucks gift certificate!

Note---before the coins were counted, Cindy guessed $37 and I guessed $70.  Boy, were we off!
