March 21st at 2:37

I got a call from the fabulous, friendly, fantastic Fred!

I have heard about Fred, but have never had the opportunity to visit with him.

What a great guy, doing what he does, making people happy by calling them and making their dreams come true.

He called and asked if I knew why he was calling, and I told him that I hoped so! He proceeded to inform me that I had been selected as an Honorable Mention in the Hall of Fame contest and then asked if I had entered before. I told him that this was the first time I had entered and that my heart was pumping chunky peanut butter because I was so surprised that I was getting this call because of that! He told me how happy that they were for me for having this success my first time, and then...

My phone died! I went through a bad service area and it dropped the call! Thank goodness that Fred is not easily annoyed and didn't give up on me! He calmly and sweetly called back and we finished the rest of our conversation. At some point in the conversation I asked him how many married women had proposed to him, and that I had a very cute daughter too. What the ????

My husband was even in the car just looking at me like I had completely lost it, which by the way I had!

I soooo didn't expect this and it really means so much to be in this group of talented people!
