I am bitterly disappointed.
We asked our readers, and the community, to send us photos of their moms, as well as nominations for our Mother of the Year contest.
We got four responses.
Well...five, if you count the person who sent one in late that was about 250 words instead of the 25 words or less we asked for.
But even so, we placed those names in a basket, written on little pieces of folded up paper, and we had our bookkeeper draw a winner. And I attempted to contact the winner right away...last Friday afternoon, in fact.
