Thank You. No, Really.

Dear DT Person,

     Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today! I know you've got deadlines, a whole slew of cards to look at, and, probably, the whole-mommy thing, but you came by anyway. I appreciate it. I value your comments and learn from what you tell me.
     For the record, I do notice which challenge sites' DT members make it by and which don't. If I enter challenges through particular sites two or three times and notice that DT doesn't stop by, or we get those "Oh, sorry, we got busy" blog posts, I stop entering at that site. (Hey, I'm a working mom. I get busy, too, but I found time for you.) OK, that's not going to crush anybody, but fewer players will make you less attractive to sponsors, etc.
    So, dear DT member, you rock.

So, rant being done, (and I almost never do that) here's today's offering:
