In a little less than four hours, the Phoenix Coyotes will host the hated Detroit Red Wings in the first whiteout game of the 2010 playoffs. Anyone who knows me well will agree that along with stitching samplers, I am passionate about hockey, and especially the Coyotes. I had season tickets with my sister for the first five seasons. I gave them up when the team moved to it's new stadium which is fifty miles one way from my house. The photo above shows me on the right with my beloved boxers, Lucy and Otis. They were special dogs, and I miss them dearly. I was on the season ticket with them for one game. The contest was held to show why you are a real fan. The picture was actually meant for our Christmas card, and I wasn't supposed to be in it, just the dogs. I was trying to get them situated, and my husband snapped it. It was pure coincidence that I had on a Coyote sweatshirt. I sent the picture in at the last minute, and they chose it. We also took the dogs to the opening game and got to walk out on the ice with the other winners. It was quite a night to remember. It's been eight years since Phoenix made the playoffs, so you can understand why I'm excited. I won't be going to the game, but I'll be cheering from my Lazy Boy. Go Coyotes!
Here's a little bit more of Ann Wragg. I'm headed up to the long verse. Don't you just love the long tailed sheep?
Thanks to several of you for keeping me busy painting this week. You should be receiving your sets any day. There were a couple of comments left asking about special orders. I am always happy to take them if a design you like is gone, just drop me an email.
