I printed out all the names of the folks who commented on the September post and the blog email subscribers. I said to Valentino, "Pick a number between one and a lot."
He said a number that would require me to actually work at counting, but you know I am willing to suffer for you folks, so I did it. I counted.

And the winner is...Marc LeBlanc from Chicago!! (Hi, Marc!) Wooooohooooo! This makes me happy for two reasons: 1. I like giving Valentino's stuff away and 2. I went to college (Southeastern Massachusetts University, back when that was a thing) with Marc way back in the day!
Then I started to feel guilty, like you guys would think the whole thing was rigged, which it totally wasn't, so I told Valentino to pick another number. He did.
|Yes, I make this face. Be quiet. Math is hard.|
So our second winner is... Matt Rosenthal! (Hi, Matt!)
Both kind gentlemen will get at least one of these and maybe (probably) (definitely) other cigary things.
|One cigar. Not one box. I'm an instructor at state colleges, for heaven's sake.|
Want to know what's up next? For October? We'll post all the deets soon, but for now...this is a pretty good hint:
|Yep! The brand-spankin' new J Grotto Anniversary Series! [source]|
