We've Done It Again!!!

I am very happy to announce that I am about to send ANOTHER $1,000 check to the Mario Lemieux Foundation!!

I say it a lot, but I never imagined this project would be so huge.....I was hoping to send *maybe* $500 when this all began. And now we're on our way to the next $1,000....amazing!!

But getting to write a big check every once in awhile is only one of the perks for me. Your e-mails and pictures truly make my day! I love how people have embraced the Roamers and you guys are really creative with your stories and places you take your penguins! And for those that think "well, there's nowhere really neat to take my Roamers", let me tell you....the pictures of them buckled into the front seat of the car, sitting in front of the tv watching a game, or hanging out at a restaurant are some of my faves :) Of course, I will admit, seeing the Penguin players with the yarn boys is a special thrill. It means so much to me that you guys take the time during your very brief interlude with the guys to get a Roamer in there for a picture. Keep up the good work!

I am also happy to announce that the waiting list is dwindling. Oh, I'm still getting orders every week, but it's slowed down just enough that I'm getting them out faster than orders are coming in. Right now the list is 37 penguins long (at one time it was 120!). It will be nice for me to be able to answer order e-mails with a "your penguin will be ready in about 2 days" instead of "you're going to have to be patient for about 6 months"!  I am almost to the 400 completed penguins mark.....all I can say is AMAZING!

So give yourselves a huge pat on the back! It's cliche, but this project and those checks would not exist without you! You guys ROCK!!!
