As I shared with everyone earlier this week, I won the grand prize at a local store's grand opening. That was a huge surprise in itself! I couldn't believe it until Friday when we picked it up and brought it home. Bill told one of the neighbors yesterday that I was going to sell the splitter when I got it home. We got home around 10 pm and it was raining. Bill went out at 11 pm and covered it. Today, as we were getting ready to bring it to my place and park it the neighbor who Bill spoke to stopped by Bill's place. The next thing I knew the man told us that he wanted the splitter!!! He and a friend of his looked at the splitter this morning and decided it was more than a bargain. So, I haven't had the splitter a full 24 hours and I managed to sell it for my price!!! I am sooooooo thrilled because it takes care of Christmas and gets me a flat screen television!! I still am in a state of shock because I didn't expect that I would win something that valuable!!! I couldn't be happier though! When's the last time you had something that great happen to you? How about something that just made you really really happy? It is a time for happiness and thankfulness, let's share our happy events and things we're really thankful for. I know the one thing I am thankful for without having to think more than a nanosecond is Bill. That's why I am so happy about winning the splitter, now I can afford to buy him some really great gifts. So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, what are you thankful for? Has something really great happened that makes you even more thankful? Please share!

Wow! Congratulations lovebear! Actually I don't know about log splitter and I have to research about it a while ago. I am thankful for the posting this discussion because I have gained additional knowledge from it. Personally, I have so many things to be thankful of, my job, my family and the latest was the early Christmas bonus that I received. I think we are the earliest office who received the bonus this year. Merry Christmas!

Congratulations on receiving your bonus early! One of the jobs that I worked at I received the Christmas bonus...via check. Then in January the boss took all the deductions out of the "bonus". What was originally a bonus turned out to be a major loss because the deductions ended up being more than the amount of money that was in the bonus.

Oh wow! Congratulations! I've been working in a company and won something before but they were just small stuffs but the feeling of winning something out of many other workers was very amazing.

thats great news.. something like that happened to me in the usa few years ago. I won a safe at a home depot opening. Didnt have anything for a safe. So I put it in penny saver. I sold it to the first person for 300.00.
