Leave a comment Monday

Saying for the day: If you can't leave a nice comment leave a bland one.

Another “ Leave a Comment Monday” has rolled around. So many things to comment on and so many comments to beg for.
Last week four people stand out in the comment area. Jan and Chana did remarkable summaries of the blogs that existed only in my head . There also Mimi stands out with her seeing a non existent video.
The one other comment that almost knocked me off my chair was Margaret’s-
“Marzipan Ice Age characters!! What a hoot. The little sabertooth squirrel is my favorite. He reminds me of Dr. John trying to find his false teeth in the morning. Especially in the way he chases that nut around all the time.“
I must give honorable mention to my daughter-in-law for her acceptance speech from last week’s award.
So to each of the great commentators I award 50 JCPOINTS and 10 to the honorable mention.
Today we begin our December clearance . The winner of today’s drawing will have the opportunity to pick two prizes from the Christmas section which we are trying to clear out.

@@@@
News from PigeonFalls– the little town in my garage where the trains still run and there are four days left to Petrovich’s doomsday.-People are busy in Pigeon Falls getting ready for the big parties on Thursday evening. Petrovich wants black streamers all through the Fly Inn . He has ordered special plastic glasses with skulls on them. Her has made huge signs out of the two driblets which mark in his mind the end of Pigeon Falls and is putting them on the walls of the bar. He is paying for a band which has to be dressed in black. He found a group called the “ Zombies”.He says that he doesn’t care what it costs because there won’t be any day after.
Pastor Marvel , on the other hand, is decorating the church in bright colors for his “ Embrace the Future Party”. Everything there is being done by volunteers. The youth group is making Yule Logs for families to take home with them in preparation for Christmas. Volunteers are taking care of cookies and other treats. They will have a nice non-alcoholic punch. He has a committee working on embrace the future games. Two vary different parties pointing to the fifteenth.
Mrs. Trumble continues her struggle to see to it that the trains are still running on the sixteenth. She has a promise from the governor, she has an investor, she is ready to go to the community for one mill, and she is working with Dr. Fortress. There is not much more that she can do.

And now the drawing-

The slip is being drawn-

We have a winner-

The winner is-

ArtsyTartsyViray

Congratulations ArtsyTartsyViray- Please go to the new PIC A PRIZE LIST and pick your prize or if you want to help with the December clearance pick two clearance prizes. Then leave the number or numbers in the comments.
This morning I sent my last E-Bay purchase back. It didn't work. I mailed out last Monday's prize ( I still have a paid up membership in the procrastinator's club). Betty and I went to the credit Union to continue the process of shifting to the new Credit Union. In the afternoon I visited all the links and left lots of bland comments. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Okay. So Petrovich is planning a party on Thursday? Why isnt he getting out of town instead -- as far away as he can? The town is going to be blown up! Something is fishy here. Me thinks Petrovich is making money on the side somewhere. Follow the money, they say.

I would stand out, but it's raining right now. Maybe I'll go stand out when it stops. :)

Thank you!

All the fuss in Pigeon Falls reminds me of all the fuss and fear about Y2K. I hope it amounts to the same big nothing.

Hey, where is my bland prize from last week???

Just kidding!!!!! I know I will get it this weekend.

It was good seeing you guys at church....sorry it was so expensive. My daughter is lucky to have grandparents who are willing to spend so much money moving and driving and moving, and more moving to see her in her pageant.

Ah, "The Zombies"! One of my favorite bands, from an era that will definitively date me beyond any chronological redemption.

Thanks for the 'blast from the past', Dr. John!

We're experiencing a warming trend, here. Hope you are, as well.

Couldn't think of a clever comment
Couldn't think od a 'nice' comment
so rather than not comment at all
decided to leave a bland comment.
But I may return with a better one!

***********
i'm glad that Mrs. Trumble has been able to do so much for the town. we are all grateful.
The party to go ofcourse is the one at church. it sounds like a wonderful way to welcome a new day.
*****************
i'm hoping your headache with Ebay is over. i hope all the banking stuff is resolved soon. Keka went to the docs today for this wknd it was tough on her. Finally, finally they put her on Synthroid for her thyroid. we wait about 2 wks to start to see something. still nothing about her legs/foot. we wait to go back to the rheumatologist...she is going back to school tomorrow. it will be a good day. hope you and Betty have a good restful day.

Okay, spit out the Saffron Bun recipe. Some family breakfast mornings are coming upon us and we all need to share in a Dr. John tradition. =O)

Hi Dr John

Haven't been by for a couple of days, but want to stop and leave my Monday Comment. It is now 0117 Hrs Mountain Standard Time in Calgary on Tuesday, does this comment still count for Monday??

Blessings to you and Betty for a good week.

PS, I've got a new cellphone, I'm so excited. Makes up for the horrible weekend I had at work and having no truck. But after reading Chana's posts, I feel a bit ashamed I fretted for something minor.
