I need to be more

I need to be more careful what I wish for. I really wasn’t expecting to get any entries for the 5 Bytes Contest…it was just a little joke. However, since people did send me entries, I suppose I should declare a winner. The prize-winning entry was actually sent in by my mother…who isn’t that Web-savvy, but is apparently getting moreso by the day. Go, Mom!
