Our winner is Silly Sasha she knew when to play her cards!

The song was The Gambler by Kenny Rogers

On a warm summer's evenin' on a train bound for nowhere,
I met up with the gambler; we were both too tired to sleep.
So we took turns a starin' out the window at the darkness
'Til boredom overtook us, and he began to speak.

You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done

The gambler then mentions that the "secret to survivin' is knowing what to throw away, and knowing what to keep" and that "the best you can hope for is to die in your sleep". At this point, the gambler puts out the cigarette and goes to sleep.
At the end of the song we are told that "somewhere in the darkness, the gambler, he broke even", and that the narrator finds "an ace that I could keep", in his final words.

I, Sweet William, hope you find that ACE!

Sasha chose our purple corsage lady tote.
What did Sasha win for herself and her Mom you ask?  Well Sasha you won a Martha Stewart rope bone.  You won our dragon fly windchimes.  And for your Mommy you snagged her a $20 Kroger gift card.  Total prizes $32 plus you chose our purple corsage lady heavy organic cotton tote.

Everybody who gave me the correct answer gets their name in the fish bowl draw for the last tote.  If you have answered correctly last time, you will get two chances in the draw.  Those who answered correctly are ~
