Ding Dong the Thread is Dead, the Wicked Old Thread is Dead!

Hallelujah! The Thread is Dead! A few months and 1754+ comments later, The Wicked Old Thread is Dead! And we have a WINNER!  WAY back in May, we kicked off the first Kill This Thread Contest. You can see the original thread HERE. Basically, the idea is that the thread lives as long as someone has posted a comment within 24 hours. If 24 hours go by without a new post, the thread dies. Well, the thread never actually died. I had to kill it b/c it went on forever. An amazingly dedicated group of posters, they were. And so, what I had to do is throw all the posters' names in a hat and pick a winner. My wife actually picked. And the winner is:

Lady Dragonkeeper

Lady Dragonkeeper, please email me with your snail mail address and name you want Christopher and I to sign the book to. We'll get it in the mail asap.

And thanks to all for being such enthusiastic participants.

I had to go to camp, and I assumed it was over when I got back.

Congrat's lady dragon keeper. it was good talking (or typing with you) and the rest of you too. it was a great experiance.
Mr. Batson, if you want to do that with one of your next books, i think that would be really cool. it is a great way to comunicate and build relationships in Christ. Just remember to start it a few years before the release date.
As aslways,
Endurance and Victory

OMGoodness!!! =D I'm so sorry . . . I've been swamped with mid-terms and since I assumed that the winner would get e-mailed since we entered the drawing via e-mail . . . I never thought to check back here. =) Thank you SO much, and thank you all for the wonderful conversations and all the fun we had . . . hopefully I'll get on the Underground soon, so we'll be able to continue. =D
