We're back again this year! Help us celebrate WdC's 18th Birthday in this fun auction!
Welcome to the Annual
WdC Birthday Ice Cream Social!







Hi there! Welcome to my little house on Hatchett Creek Hill in the lovely state of Alabama! Come on up and sit in the porch swing. There’s freshly squeezed lemonade and homemade ice cream in the churn. Oh, I see there are more guests arriving. It's time for the Birthday Party to begin! You see, my birthday is September 1st, just like Writing.com's. 

Happy Birthday, WdC Sig 4


The site that makes so many dreams come true for all of us is celebrating it's
*BalloonP* *Star* *BalloonB* *Pointright* Eighteenth Birthday *Pointleft*  *BalloonB* *Star* *BalloonP*


Here in Alabama, it's simply not a proper birthday party without homemade ice cream from the churn. I have some already made on the porch. Each day I'll make a new batch, so make sure you come back and guess what flavor is in the ice cream churn! Every time you bid on a package, you get one guess at the ice cream Flavor of the Day! *Bigsmile*
