Saying for the day: A tidy blog is a good blog.
This is Wednesday and I thought I’d use the space to just tidy up a bit.
First of all there is the PRIZE BOX thing.
I never thought it would take this long to get a winner.
But if we don’t have one today we will draw four names tomorrow and if any of them match the one drawn today it is finally over.
Next I am getting ready for the next blog marathon which will be next Wednesday.
I am checking all the names to make sure the links work.
I am laying out a plan to count the results so we don’t have the trouble we had last time ( of course I am not responsible for AT&T or blogger).
You will have more links to choose from than last time.
Then Margaret wanted to know what my favorite song or artist is.
That is a hard question but I narrowed it done to two possibilities , Amy Grant singing “El Shaddai” or Gene Autry singing “Back in the Saddle Again”.
Somebody asked how they could become a “link for the Day”.
That is not easy to answer.
First I have to find your blog.
Then it must be interesting.
It must not be a primarily commercial blog.
After that it is placed on a pending list.
A blog is chosen each day from that list by using an advanced equation developed out of chaos theory.
I think that’s all the loose ends.
Now the blog is tidy.
News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my backyard where the trains still run and old ladies carry shotguns– Well we may have seen the last of the White Rabbit. Yesterday evening they blocked off the main street and set up the beer drinking contest in the very center of town. Six tables with kegs of beer. There were 30 contestants. The idea was too see who could drink the most glasses of beer in ten minutes. Five minutes into the contest there was the sound of a shotgun blast at the end of the block and then thick black smoke poured around the corner. Everybody , including the contestants ran to the end of the street to find Mrs. Trumble with her shotgun . She was covered with little pieces of stuffing from the inside of a stuffed Easter rabbit. She said she expected the White Rabbit would show up today and so she waited for it. When it came out of the woods she jumped out but as she raised her gun the White Rabbit threw the stuffed rabbit toward her and her blast hit the stuffed rabbit. But she thinks she hit the White Rabbit as well since all this black sulfur smelling smoke suddenly appeared and when it cleared the Rabbit was gone. “ I sent the demon back to where he came from”, she said. ”He won’t bother us any more” . She explained that she had special shotgun shells that had silver pellets and a drop of Holy Water in them. She got them from a catalogue that sells things to protect you from the supernatural. Eino says he is convinced that the White Rabbit is a mechanical device and that when she shot it is must have caught fire .That would explain the dense smoke. But there were no ashes, the forest didn’t catch fire, and there is nothing left of the rabbit. How does one explain that in a rational manner?
The beer drinking contest went on and Fredrick Hemingras , a tourist, won. He drank one glass more than anybody else inside the ten minutes. After all the excitement with the White Rabbit nobody really seemed to care who won except for Fredrick who liked his fancy shirt that said “Best Darn Beer Drinker in the World” on the front and back.
Nancy says that Mrs. Turmble has become Pigeon Falls equivalent of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She is now Mrs. Trumble the demon destroyer. Tommy says he still thinks the White Rabbit was nice and that if Mrs. Trumble did kill him it’s a bad not a good thing.
