Monday Monday Monday Again
Saying for the day: An English spoon is as good a spoon as you'll ever have.
Another week has gone by and here it is “Leave a comment Monday” already.
So I will visit all my links and if the entries are new I’ll leave a comment. I may also add a couple of links.
Monday . Of course is also when we have the priceless drawing for items beyond value.
The prize today is and English collector’s spoon in honor of TC who has been on vacation but always leaves interesting comments.
The first name drawn gets the spoon that says England on the top and the second gets the spoon that says Wales.
These are the high class collector’s spoons that you can only get from the trunks of cars in the big city.
Also since nobody has won we add to the Prize Box two more buildings and some neat little people.
My granddaughter really wants somebody to win so if there is no winner by Wednesday we will do a two for on Thursday.
Instead of drawing one name we will draw two and if either matches the previous day that one wins the box. (See Bree I’m trying)
If I don’t get a winner pretty soon the postage on the box will kill us.
Good luck everybody and good commenting.
News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my backyard where the train still runs and dragons fly free– Bill Maki won or lost the draw and he started the Liar’s Club finals today. This is the story he told:
“ You look like a group of people who can be trusted so I am going to tell you a secret that I’ve kept from all of Pigeon Falls. I have a good friend named Robert Strickenberry who is a professor of biological science at the California Institute of Technology. He has been working at the splicing of genes and he spliced some human genes into the gene code of a rabbit. He was trying to create a human that could jump higher. The result was a three foot White Rabbit with human characteristics. Now he wasn’t authorized to do this experiment so he brought the rabbit here where it escaped and where people catch a glimpse of it every once in a while. Now this rabbit has some other strange characteristics. He likes pink sweaters and to wave at people. He can talk. He also seems to have the ability to float upward and my friend has no idea where that came from. My friend assures me that the rabbit is not dangerous but has one terrible habit. It likes to lie. In fact if you sat in on Jon Bergall’s story the other day that Rabbit had Jon believing that he came from another dimension and was being chased by a dragon. I’m telling you the rabbit could win this contest hands down. He also likes to fool people . He has poor Mrs. Trumble believing he’s a demon. But he won’t go there anymore since she bought a shotgun. There is nothing worse in this world than a lying , joke playing rabbit. Now if you don’t think this story is true ask any of the people who have seen the White Rabbit they will back me up.”
The judges gave him five tens and five nines for a score of 9.5. Now we have to wait to see how the others do.
The Link for today is:DMD Scratchboard Gallery Blog . Remember to put Dr. John in your comment to get 5 lovable JCPOINTS. To check your points click HERE.
Today's drawing will be held when Betty gets up. She has done a lot of work lately so I'm letting her sleep.
I'd like to ask a favor . My grandaughter Bree has lost a friend , her age, and part of her first communion group. She is helping to handle her grief the way many in the blog community do by blogging. Could you drop by her blog and leave one of your kind comments. Click here on Bree to go to her blog.
If you have some ideas about how to handle a bully your could stop by Bazza27's blog Tremendous and share them with him. His blog today is on bullys.
I could suggest you go to Quilldancer's blog andd vote for me , two or three times, but that would be unethical so I won't do it.
Well Betty is up and the first drawing has been held. If sue's name was drawn she gets what's in the PRIZE BOX. And the name is.....
Meredith who has only 16 JCPOINTS so the odds are against her for tomorrow. Sorry Sue.( Sorry Bree)But luck is a a funny thing. Good luck Meredith.
Now to the second drawing. The second drawing went against the odds. Jafabrit was drawn twice so she gets both spoons an almost impossible happening. To make it even stranger she is from England and has won once before. Wow life takes strange turns.I calculated the odds on this happening. For her to be picked at all the odds were 1 chance in 22. To be picked twice the odds were 1 in 484. This is based on her JCPOINT total.
Betty took the garbage (some of it to the dump) then we cleaned the garage and took down and stored the tables from the rummage sale. After that we began the boxing up of the G scale train cars that aren't going with the house. Then Betty went to the grocery store and now she has gone to bible study. I need a breathing treatment
