My Husband Won A Fruit Basket!!!

Canada
December 2, 2009 1:42am CST
We attended the annual CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) Christmas party tonight. Because we are both almost blind, we are both members. It was so much fun. The band was great, the food was wonderful, and my husband won a fruit basket!! It's full of apples, bananas, oranges, pears, and grapes. We've decided to go buy some chocolate tomorrow, and make a fondue, and dip the fruit in the chocolate fir a nice evening snack. I'm also going to get some marshmallows, to ad. YUMMY! Has anyone else won anything interesting lately? :)

...H there danishcanadian, That sounds like a good time was had by all, plus you won a nice treat. I haven't won anything lately but once I went on a short harbor cruise, a friend pulled my name out of a hat for the drawing, I won the prize and if I am not mistaken, it too was a basket of fruit. I love fruit, I was shocked to hear my name called that evening as the prize winner. Enjoy your fruit with the chocolate, love that as well. Take care.

Talk about shocked, we know the feeling. LOL Most of the people at the party were blind, and those who had a little bit of site left (I am among one of those people) were reading our own numbers, as well as reading the numbers for the blind ones. My husband happened to read his number aloud, and it's a good thing someone heard it, because the draws were done randomly, and almost missed it. However, the guy next to him tapped him on the arm and said 'hey that's you! Get up there!' :)

Now that sounds interesting. You gave me a good idea, and I am going to have a French friend coming over for Christmas and we were planning to celebrate it with the kids from under priviliged community, and if both of us join we can make small baskets like the one u mentioned and distribute among themselves. I hope they are going to enjoy it too. Chocolate would be a bit expensive for us as the number of kids is 38, so we might skip it. But thanks for sharing the idea

That sounds yummy! I love fruit baskets. I won a CD and a DVD of a comic on Gather, but I wouldn't call it interesting. Defnitely not yummy like a fruit basket!

That is cool that you won something! I have never won anything in my life! Okay, well, I take that back....my daughter was in with a Party Lite sales person that was pushing really hard for more parties to win a trip and she really wanted more parties, and my daughter was on the top of her list... and me and my daughter went to a party thing she had with drawings...and when we were introduced at my daughters party... she really cozzied up to me and pushed for me to have a party - I don't know enough people to have a party! But she was persistant.. and what do you know... I won a raffle for credits toward any order I place with her that night AND credits toward a party expense thing. I spent the credits that night, but no party. Thought it odd, that I was the one that won the credits to a party that she had been pushing to me for a few weeks! Maybe not, but just seemed to "planned". But have a great chocolate party!!! Sounds like alot of fun. Wish my husband would like doing that kind of stuff!

That is wonderful to hear. I have won here recently also but it was cash money from one of my survey sites. I have won twice from them in the last couple of months. It is nice because I have never won anything.

Oh, that sounds like fun. I don't think I've been to anyplace like that in the last few years. Seems I live a dull and boring life these days. As for winning anything, I can't remember anything at all. I guess I'm one of those unlucky people because I hardly win anything ever.

Congratulations!! I am sure you both are thrilled to have won a fruit hamper in this pre christmas party. I have once won a supermarket lucky pick and I got a basket full of mixed goodies. But that was years ago and hopefully lady luck will smile once more before christmas.
