Lets do a Marathon

Saying for the day: Some times winning is just staying in the race.

Welcome baqck from your fourth of July celebration.
Today we invite you to join in a JC Marathon.
At the end of this section you will be able to access a list of names.
Clicking on a name will take you to that person's blog.
The purpose of the marathon is to visit as many blogs as possible from the list .
For each blog visited in which you leave a comment with the words Dr. John you will get 3 JC points.
This is your chance to accumulate a large number of usless points. ( They do give you a better chance to win priceless JC prizes.)
Also anyone visting twenty or more blogs will receive 10 blog cards . These will contain your logo , your blog name, and your URL. You can give them to friends, neighbors, or complete strangers on the street.
The marathon ends at 6:30 Thursday morning.
Now go get points. Lots of points.

News from Pigeon Falls- The little town in my backyard-Pastor Marvel and the Methodist Pastor put aside theological differences and ran together in the three legged race at the big town picnic. They won. It was a triumph for ecumenical cooperation.
One of those papers that you read while standing in the grocery store line ran an article on the demonic white rabbit of Pigeon Falls. I think they must have talked just to Mrs. Trumble. In any case Pigeon Falls got a few more visitors because of it. Robert whose Taxi business was going no place is making a little selling tours that promise to see the white rabbit. So far he has shown people the white rabbit on the fire hall roof, the Masonic hall roof, and the Liar's club roof. It always shows up on a roof and Robert always seems to know when it will show up. The tourists love it.
Wille has been sober , now, for three days. He still swears he saw two angels.
No pigeons have returned since the big windstorm.
Nancy says that some people are sorry now about the way they treated the Bishop.Looking back he seems to have been a good guy. It seems even sadder because the old house is empty again.

No link today because of the Marathon. All JC points will be upgraded by Thursday.
The JC points list is now updated as of July 4th and can be seen by clicking on the JC points update on the left hand side. All of my links are back except for one. The Pigeon Falls reprints will return when I figure out where I stored them. We came back from Green Bay today after we took my granddaughter birthday shopping. On the way back we stopped at Arby's and put in an order. The price came to $11.25. Then the clerk told us the credit card thing was down so we would have to pay cash. Between us we only had $6.25. They wouldn't take a check so we just left. The rest of the trip back was fine. Since getting home I have been trying to fix what got messed up on the blog while I was in Green Bay. Well I need a breathing treatment.

Whew...that was a long list, but I saved the best for last Dr. John. Oh yeah, your name wasn't on the list was it! I commented on all of them that would let me...even my as long as it counts, lets see all of them except for two..or was it three. Do I get extra points for being first? Oh well, I'm not going back to count. The point of it wasn't to get the points since they're useless anyway! LOL!

I'm very concerned; what if the pigeons don't return? Will we be reading about "No Pigeons Falls"?

Very distressing . . .

Dr. John, I'm so glad you, and your tempermental laptop survived the holiday!

Annette woke me up this morning with a VERY early comment, and since I'm already awake, I think I'll go marathoning!

Have a great day!

I started on the list before having to leave for work, didn't get very far but saw a few. I did see that Annette was sprinting just ahead of me everywhere I went- knew I'd never catch up, lol... Anyway, it was really fun and I saw blogs that I never would have otherwise.

Okay, you all had me "google" Dr. John.. to come up with notta. I searched high and low trying to figure out why on some comments... "I was sent here by Dr. John" was up. Here I am. And hey! I'm impressed Dr. John. -Margiemix
