Monday and things change
Saying for the Day: Sometimes you have to try a bribe when all else fails.
It’s “Leave a Comment Monday”. The day when everyone is expected to leave a comment on the blogs they visit.
This is not 30 second Tuesday when the idea is to see how many blogs one can visit to run up blog explosion points .
But if you want blog explosion credits I will give 50 credits to the best comment of the day on this blog or the link for the day.
Now I am resorting to bribery to get comments.
What have I come to?
Am I comment addicted.
Is there a blog comment addiction group out there somewhere.
Is there a five step program ( I don’t have time for twelve steps I’m too busy leaving comments)
Last week I was so busy counting comments that I didn’t get to leave many.
I have tried to catch up and I missed some very good blogs.
My favorite comment of the week was on my wife's blog. She had the same pictures of folk dancers up for a week and QuillDancer said...
These kids have been dancing for over a week! I bet they are exhausted!
Today we bring in the first change in the Monday prize contest since we started it.
Starting today we will draw one name on Monday and one name on Friday.
The name chosen will then pick a prize from a prize list with at least six different prizes on it.
Now instead of being stuck with the worthless prize of the day (woops I mean priceless prize) you will have a choice from a list of priceless prizes.
See the list HERE.
Good luck everybody.
News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my backyard where the trains still run and that gets no help from Washington-Well clean up in Pigeon Falls, after the big blizzard, has begun. Washington said the town didn’t qualify for federal aid . So we called B,E.T.T.Y. This is a state agency and they came with all the help you could ask. The gas station is back in order. Two buildings have no roofs and the B.E.T.T.Y. group is working on Eino’s garage wall.
Eino’s basement closet is still locked and he has a guard at the garage for fear someone might try to take advantage of the situation and steal the Hermit statue.
The man who visited the other day seens to have just vanished leavening questions without answers.
The town is all excited because the Tigers are in the World Series. Twenty years is a long time to wait for a winner. The two football teams they support , Packers and Lions, aren’t doing well. But their Tigers are just roaring.
The same can not be said for the New Potatoes. They have lost still another game. It doesn’t look like they will win this season. The school board has yet to come up with a solution to the name problem. It is going to be a long year.
The churches in town are planning a joint thanksgiving meal. It will be held at Last Lutheran Church but all three churches will contribute. Its for lonely old people whose children have forgotten them and for those who are too poor to have a good Thanksgiving meal. There is no charge. Pastor Marvel will bring his usual apple pie that he makes at the grocery store.
Link for the Day-Original Art Work by the Mad Artist- remember to put the words Dr. John in the comment to get those artistic but still worthless JCPOINTS- Check your points HERE.

We had a nice day. We worked in the garage in the afternoon getting ready to bring in the buildings from the layout. we were going to leave them out this winter but discovered from that first storm that some simply wouldn't hold up. My sister called. Now I need a breathing treatment.
