Almost a year ago, Emily had a training where they served box lunches from Heavenly Ham. Inside her box was an entry card for an Oscar party prize pack. It included a big screen tv and a party tray from HH. We didn’t think anything of it at first, but decided to enter.
Usually we don’t enter those sort of contests because there are 200 million people entering and someone in some far off place usually wins. Anyhow, this time we did enter. A few weeks later, I got a mysterious email from a HH address. At first, I thought it was spam and nearly deleted the message.
The text in it was typical spam-talk, but they listed a few pieces of information that caught my attention. We were the grand prize winners and they didn’t need our bank account or social security information to award us the prize…it must be real! I responded and emailed back and forth with the company representative. A few days later, we received a generous gift card to Best Buy to choose a big screen tv on which to watch the Oscars with a few friends.
That’s sort of the funny part really…we don’t watch tv much. We haven’t had cable in 14 years. We do get antenna reception but find that there is little on worth watching. To be fair, HH said we could spend the money on anything at BB. Still, it was an Oscar party prize so we decided to go ahead and get a big screen tv and a surround sound system with an upconvert dvd player. We took all sorts of goofy pictures of the buying process including posing with the Geek Squad car, the BB sales guy, picking up the food, etc.
So, we invited family over and watched the Oscars and had a good time. The HH party tray was awesome. If you’ve never had Heavenly Ham, try some…it’s a little pricey but so good. I’d eat there every week if I could! I especially love their ham salad.
We still don’t watch much tv on it, but we love an occasional Netflix and it’s hard to beat the Dukes of Hazzard and Daisy Duke in big screen form! Thanks Heavenly Ham and Best Buy!

At least if you were going to win something, you won something good!
Real winners! So cool.
Media is my husband’s work, so I was *forced* to accept the big screen a few years back. It is with a speck of shame that I confess, I love it!
And ham? Okay, yeah, I love ham too!
I think Nature shows are awesome on the big screen.
Oh man, a big ham sandwich and Daisy Duke at the same time. Now that is heavenly. Cool TV too. I won a 12ga shotgun one time yeas ago, I guess that’s where my luck ran out. lol
What a great prize – congrats! My husband loves our ginormous TV. I’m like you and don’t watch much anyway. And, I get Heavenly Ham for Thanksgiving every year – I don’t eat ham or turkey, so it would be wasteful for me to do a whole bird or ham here.
I was worried at first that you were going to say that you bought the GEEK Squd car LOL.
Congrats and as usual very nice photos.
NOW I understand you love of the “Dukes”
LOL…glad it wasn’t us! My hubby had been trying to get rid of my antique amoire’ that houses our measly 32″ tv and in its stead get a out of countrol 60″…NOT gonna happen, at least as long as I can chain myself to my amoire! Congrats on the great prize!
Your letter is T!
WOW – I love that last picture – it clearly shows how dang big that thing is! 🙂 That baby’s head (with the mohawk) is bigger than your and your wife’s heads put together! lol
Congrats and methinks Finding Nemo would be waaaay better on that screen than the Dukes of Hazzard. But that’s just me. 🙂
Aah, the irony. I absolutely, positively love it. You would have to win, being that you haven’t had cable in umpteen years… Great post.
You know, I hate to admit it, but when we do watch movies, I love to watch them on that tv. The surround sound is awesome too…We love the Star Wars movies especially…incredible! Anyhow, we love the irony of it all too…and we aren’t likely to get cable anytime soon. I prefer the money in my pocket. Anyhow, HH and BB were excellent and I am willing to sign book deals or advertisement spots with either!
Wow! Congratulations on winning!
