Finally We Have our Kindle Winner--Hello from Dennis 929

I finally heard from Dennis 929 this morning, and here's his email back to me. As you can see he's rather excited, as I think I would be too. And he's also explained his absence, which makes my heart grow fonder as he appears to be a really nice guy. Congrats, Dennis 929 and the info on claiming your prize is on your email when you get to it.

Hellooooooooooo, Hellooooooooooo, Helloooooooooo,
I've been working to restore power to the tornado locations in Alabama. We're in very rural parts where the internet service is null...or very spotty! I used my co-worker's netbook on break to enter your drawing. I'm a mechanic, and am often on the move here.
I do not have a personal smart phone, etc....plain ol' tracfone....straight dial...no text...no internet! (I'm not up on using all the techie phone & puter stuff anyway)
I'm on a quick break now & another co-worker has an iphone & is showing me stuff on it & told me to go to my email....which is out of control!
Your email was on the top 30 this morning & I thought you were going to give me info. about the book I won. Whooooo Hoooooo Dennis 929 is me!! I do feel like I won the lottery...ha ha it's been years since I won ...& I'm talking about getting only 3 #'s right!!
I'm speechless & very excited about it! I can't THANK YOU enough!! Thank You---Thank You!!
My wife has a Kindle 3G & won't share....lol. I told her I was going to win one...ha ha...wait till I tell her & get the Kindle 3G Special Order one...that will really get her! ha-ha.
Thank You for being so generous. You remind me of my wife...on her BD she always buys her Mom a present. I didn't get a chance to read the rest of your blog now...but hoping you are doing well & had a wonderful Birthday!
You made my day!!! Thanks Again!! My wife & I pledged last month that for the rest of this year to donate each month both of our book budget $$ to the tornado fund. But, THANKS to you...I'll get my Kindle & I also won a book from your drawing too! Thanks Linda, & also thank the other author's for doing this...I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!
Gotta go,...the boss was good to me & let me finish this email....lol...I don't type very fast!
I'm on my way to another crew, no idea when I'll be able to get back with you...or what I'm suppose to do next.
I was told that we may be leaving to go home in a week or so. I will check my email when I'm able.
I will tell my wife tonight...ha ha...can't wait till she see's my name!! I will have her check my email & answer you if you need any other info.
Thanks Again Linda, Thanks for emailing me this morning, & my apologies for not getting back to you sooner!
Dennis (Yes it's me..the PITA...Dennis 929)
