Yahooooo!!! I'm so happy for you.

I asked my daughter (she's the only one with money in this family) for a copy of Lottery and Look Me in the Eye for Christmas, since I can't manage to win one.

Congratulations!!!
ahhh, I love the poster who said "This is echt." One of my favorite phrases from your book.

I remembered the store! I'm going as soon as my 90 minute school delayed kids get the heck out of the house! :) My brother is in DC - doesn't get the Sunday Post. His partner is checking in their office though.

Hooray for Pat and Perry!

Congratulatios Pat.
BTW have been meaning to write an email to you all these months on your success, but Life has been demanding.
Congratulations again.

The Anti-Wife said...

Congratulations. Well deserved.

Carrie Wilson Link said...

Very cool! I'm halfway through your wonderful book, just started it yesterday, can't wait to finish it today! LOVE Perry. You capture him so well. The real hero, to me, is Gram. LLLOOOOOVVVVVEEEE Gram!

Sustenance Scout said...

Carrie's so so right! Gram rocks!!

Demon Hunter said...

Uber cool. I like the description: "profoundly lovable". Very apt. Congratulations!

Brenda said...

I'm tagging you on my blog, Patricia. If you have time, post some weird and random facts about yourself!

Jess Riley said...

Way to go, Pat! That is so exciting!!!!

Carrie Wilson Link said...

I'm an auditor. I think that's my new favorite expression. You captured the mannerisms of a "Perry-type" person so well. No contractions, the repetition, the good heartedness, the kindness, the work ethic, the routines. Nicely done. I can't believe you didn't raise a child like this, or grow up with a sibling like this. Hard to pull off, but you did it!

Fabulous that Lottery is on the Washington Post list for 2007!! Very well deserved. Thank you for the comment on my blog...I've left a huge message on my comments page.
