A relative of mine just sent this to me. It is a contest my beloved granny and her boyfirend have entered where the winner of the best love story gets a cruise from Southwest Airlines. Please vote for her! I read them all and hers really is the best!

VOTE for Clyde and Edna (story #4) to win Southwest Airlines LUV story contest. They are one of five finalist couples from over 2000 entries and they can win a free cruise. After you vote, you can enter to win a trip to Las Vegas just for voting. (See the voting page for details.)

Go to cast your vote for one of the five finalists. (Note: Do not use “www” in the address.)

You will be asked for a phone number which will act as a registration number. You are allowed to vote once per day. (Note: the instructions say, “Only one vote per day per customer.” We have gotten clarification of the term “customer” as meaning anyone who votes.

Make sure your pop-up blocker is off (I didn't get any pop-ups other than the stories). For some reason (spam I guess) it asks for a phone number. I made one up and it works just as well. Please vote!

Voted! That is so adorable.

My boyfriend (of 3 years) and I could never enter one of those contests: "We met and it was love at first sight, but unfortunately both of our significant others weren't too pleased about that when they figured it out"

I voted. Theirs was by far the best story.
Posted by MandyM (Member # 8375) on :
Thanks guys! I think it is so cute that their story is there with all those young people.

My granny is now 83. She acts like a teenager in love when he calls too. She gets all giddy and silly. I just love that she has found a companion to make her happy so late in her life. They go out dancing and on vacations together and she would rather go see him for holidays than stay with us.

Voted...were they chosen from a bigger group as finalists?
Posted by MandyM (Member # 8375) on :
Yes, the site says something like 2000 applicants entered so it is amazing that they are finalists. Thanks for all the votes. It is not the trip that will thrill them; it is having the best story that will just tickle my granny to pieces. [Smile]

Just wanted to give everyone an update. My granny got a call today telling her she won the contest. She and her boyfriend get to go on the cruise! This was great news for her today. She has had a rough week since she had to put her dog to sleep. Thanks everyone for voting and making her day brighter! I love Hatrack!
