No, I'm not singing a Barry Manilow song, I am referring to joining the "Club". 


About a month ago, my laptop went to comptuter heaven and I have had to enter my sweeps from my itty, bitty 7" tablet, thus reduding the number of sweeps that I enter. Just got a new laptop and I can finally let you all in on my big news.


On Thursday, July 11, I received a UPS alert that a 1 lb package would be delivered on Friday, July 12 and it had to be signed for. Well, I was on vacation and would return Sunday, so, I knew that they would re-deliver. On Monday, I UPS delivered a large envelope.


Inside was a notification from Kellogg's/Meijer that I had won the Meijer-Kellogg's MLB World Series Sweepstakes that ended on June 30.  Sent the affi in right away, but won't know anything until the National and American winning teams are decided. Trip is for 2


Prize includes air, hotel, admission to World Series game, and a $350.00 prepaid MasterCard for meals, etc.. They are giving an ARV of $5,500.00, but all will depend on the final itinerary and where they need to fly us.


Took the papers to my Daughter's house and let my grandson read them and his eyes got real wide. He turned 18 last month and will be a senior in high school this year. I asked him, "Would you like to go with Grandma?" Needless to say, he will be going with me. This will be his first plane ride.


We live in W Michigan and all are huge Detroit Tigers fans-wouldn't that be something if they end up in the World Series!


Sorry if I rambled, I am so excited!!


I wish to thank all of the kind, helpful members here on ST, your friendliness has meant alot to me and is greatly appreciated.


(Now that I am back on a laptop, I need to catch up with all of your winnings for the last month and a half as there was no time to check on them with my tablet. Looking forward to reading all the posts)

I'm so happy for you and it's so sweet you are taking your grandson! It might have even choked me up a bit reading your story. Congratulations and GO TIGERS! My Dbacks don't stand a chance.
