The Fourth Blog Marathon

Saying for the day: If you think you can then do it.

Are you ready for our fourth monthly blog marathon?

Are you ready to type “Dr. John” until your fingers bleed.

Are you going to pile up useless JCPOINTS?

Then here we go.

The rules are simple .

1. Go to a blog on the list for the day.
2. Leave a comment containing the words “Dr. John”
3. Repeat the above two steps

This marathon will be different than the last three because summer vacation is over.
It will run six days.
Each day there will be a new list containing seventeen names.
You can work a list until I remove it from play.

If you finish 60 blogs in the six days ( that’s ten blogs a day) you will receive a marathon certificate of merit.

If you finish 75 blogs or more you will get a genuine blogger’s cup.

If you finish all the blogs you have far too much free time.

Because of the marathon there will be no link for the day.
Go! Go! Go!

News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my back yard where the trains still run and old ladies hunt rabbits.– There was plenty of excitement in Pigeon Falls last night. Ronald Smythe was in the Gazebo telling his rabbit story to an assembled crowd when the White Rabbit showed up on the other end of the street. It was carrying a huge pumpkin and wearing it’s red , white, and blue sweater. Mrs. Trumble was in her usual place in the middle of the street and jumped to her feet when she saw the rabbit. She raised the Demon Slayer aimed and fired. The pumpkin literally exploded in the White Rabbit’s arms. Pumpkin flew everywhere. The White Rabbit kept right on going and disappeared behind the church. All that was left were pumpkin pieces. A group of people spent some time searching in the woods but found nothing not even a track. Mrs. Trumble said she hit him but it was just a little slow to take effect. She is convinced the reason they couldn’t find him is she sent him back with all the other demons and their boss. Poor Smythe his story got lost in the melee. Who wants to hear a White Rabbit story when they have the real thing . When those tourists go home they won’t be telling a story they heard but one that they participated in. As with all stories it will get bigger and better with the telling. A few years from now Mrs. Trumble may be remembered as
having a machine gun instead of Demon Slayer.
Nancy says some people went and visited Mrs. Trumble and asked her to run for Mayor. She turned them down cold. She said that when she frees the town from its demons she wants to just sit home and crochet.

Todays Link List - First Link List- Remember to put the words Dr. John in your comments. Check HERE for your JCPOINTS.
We had a good day. I finished the lists for the remaining days and checked them. Betty went to Tops and over to the George Young center for luch. There she met the lady that was having her baby the same time as Betty was having Pennie and they shared a room. They fadn't seen each other for years.Betty and I took the loan request to the bank and now we wait. We went and looked at a new car but at $6000 it was too much. That's $6000 with our car as trade. Its a Pontiac Montana 2006. We took it for a test drive. We miss the Montana we had. There is lots of warranty left on this one and only 9000 miles on it. We almost caved. Well I need a breathing treatment.

hi Dr. John. did my rounds, left your name in all the links. it was nice to visit some marathon blogs of the past. you did a great job setting it up. thank you for all your hard work.
Mrs. Trouble is back to her old ways i see. How terrifying to be all wrapped up in an intriguing story and have a gun shot blast you ears off...the pumpkin pinata must have been some sight. sorry for Ron..i wonder if he could get another shot, oops wrong word, another opportunity to tell his story.
i hope this marathon goes easier on you both. thank you both for your kind and thoughtful comments. i'm feeling at peace again today. take care and read you tomorrow.

The poor Rabbit! Bad enough to be covered in pumpkin guts, but he could be winged or worse. Where is PETA when you need them?

Again Mrs Truble is over confident in her target skills. I think the rabbit should get a new sweater with a pic of Mrs Trumble on it inside a circle with a line.

That or a sweater that says "Trumble for Mayor"!
