    Job well done! Awesome!
    I was looking through the list and did not see my friend Millie from NY's name on there for 7 scarves going to Iraq.
    Thanks for looking into this Dee.

    A thousand Thank You's, Lynda, for pointing this out ... Millie was correctly identified in my spreadsheet, but when I brought the information over I apparently changed the spelling of her name to "Minnie" (egads!) ... I have immediately corrected the typo so now she gets the proper -- and rightfully so! -- credit she deserves!

    Millie, please forgive me!
    Sincerely,
    ~Dee
