Trying to beat the odds
Saying for the day: If the odds are against you find a different game.
Well if we don’t draw the right name this morning then tomorrow we will do a two for to cut the odds a bit.
Whoever’s name we draw today will win if either name drawn tomorrow matches.
If there is no match tomorrow then both names carry over and if the name drawn on Friday matches either one that one wins.
I want my granddaughter to know that I am trying to give the box away.
This whole contest thing has taught me something about winning and losing.
Every day I enter 100 tickets on IWON.COM .
At first I thought with that many I had a good chance.
But now I see that with thousands entering 100 tickets the odds for me are pretty poor.
The same thing is true of publisher’s clearing house.
I enter many, many, times and never win.
In the end it all comes down to luck.
You either have it or you don’t.
But I have something better than luck I have a loving God who provides for all my needs ( not my wants) and constantly blesses me.
What could be better than that?
News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my backyard where the trains still run– Eino’s Stanley Steamer still isn’t running but Eino said by parade time it will. The Liar’s club noted last night to make Quilldancer an honorary member and make her house branch #2. Well Robert Jupola got to go next in the Pigeon Falls Liar’s Club run off. Here is his entry.
“ I have a friend. Let’s call him Tom though that’s not his real name. He doesn’t want anybody to know who he is. You see Tom has this weird power. He is able to fly. Yes, to fly! Oh! He doesn’t fly like super man . He thinks up and slowly he goes up. Then he thinks a direction and he goes in that direction. One problem is he doesn’t go fast. I guess because he is a slow thinker. He doesn’t know where this power came from. Perhaps he’s a mutant like the one’s in the comic book or the movies. He is very much afraid people will find out and then he will be subjected to scientific experiments .So he is keeping this a secret. This means he only flies on dark nights so he won’t be seen. What would people think if they saw him floating overhead? But this is just too good a power to waste so I talked him into playing a little practical joke on the town. I had this old dragon costume out in the barn. In the daylight it wouldn’t fool anybody but at night. Tom put it on and took his dad’s flame thrower and one night while I was taking my tour group out he flew down main street shooting out fire. It was awesome everybody thought he was a real dragon. On the way back down the street he saw the White Rabbit and pretended to chase it. When he turned the corner he saw something. He knows the white rabbit’s secret but he won’t tell me what it is. What he saw got him so confused he crashed in the woods. I suppose because he stopped thinking fly and has no auto pilot. He almost set the woods on fire.
Now if you don’t believe me the old dragon costume is back in the barn and I can show it to you. Or you can turn the corner at the end of the street and go straight into the woods where you’ll find a little burn spot.”
He got six 10’s and four 9”s for a score of 9.6 which puts him in the lead at this point with three people to go.

Yesterday we drew Stacy. If we draw Stacy again today she gets what's in the prize box.
The drawing has to wait for Betty to get up.
Betty is up and the drawing is done....
Todays name drawn is Sue. If Sue is drawn in either of the two draws tomorrow she wins what's in the prize box.
I checked in to Quilldancer's blog this morning and discovered I have been defeated badly. Well I just have no luck. My daughter-in-law who was ahead yesterday was 400 votes behind this morning. Things sure do change fast. Betty took a load of garbage to the dump ( see how thrilling our life is) Then went to Tops. We continued cleaning the garage and packing things up. Today we started on the tools. Then I had the horrible thought what happen's if we never sell the house and everything is packed up. Betty told me not to think like that. I need a breathing treatment.
