A Winner at Last

Saying for the day- Some things are worth waiting for.

The wait is over.

We have a winner.

The seven judges and one alternate have voted.

We had scary dragons, romantic dragons, friendly dragons, hungry dragons, and even cute little dragons.

I hated the fact that we had to pick one story when they all deserved to win.

I loved each and every story. They were like beautiful jewels. Each different from the other but a thing of beauty in its own right.

You can see these stories HERE.

The judges agreed with me that these were special stories. The winner got three first place votes, second place got two, and the other three first place votes were spread among the writers.

But in the end every contest must have a winner. To be the winner in this prestigious group is truly an honor.

That honor goes to:

Margaret


Congratulations Margaret. Thank you to all the marvelous writers who took part.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where trains still run, dragons fly, poltergeists do what they do, and the Liar’s Club has a winner.-The Liar’s Club met this morning and Buddy East, the Grand Master Liar, announced the winner of the Liar’s Club dragon story telling contest. The winner was somebody named Margaret who writes a blog called “ Do You Have Issues”. Bob Smith said that he didn’t think that was right because dragons shouldn’t be cute they should be menacing. Then arguments broke out all across the club. Each member seemed to have a story they thought should have won. That’s when Buddy East reminded them that the decision of the judges was final. Next year they should volunteer to be one of the judges. That quieted the group down. They were all pleased with the high quality of the stories they had received. How a dragon should act seemed to differ from individual to individual and thus shaped how they saw a particular story. Buddy East then pointed out that the winner’s plaque was not yet ready. It was promised in a week. Nothing ever goes right in Pigeon Falls.
The Good Friday service went well yesterday. There were no poltergeist appearances and no dragons. Pastor Moe went over his allotted time and people felt was the most boring of the group. Jack did fine even though he was a bit short. All in all it was a meaningful service for all those who sat through all seven words.

Today's Link-Will be on hold until we return from the house in Crystal Falls. Then I promise new and greater links.
Didn't go anywhere today. I didn't blog much. I napped in the afternoon so did Betty. It was a lazy day.I played canasta with Betty and Pennie and I won. Now I will take a breathing treatment.

Congratulations to Margaret! I haven't had time to read all the stories, and I would never have had the talent to write one. I love the fire breathing dragon on your post!

Happy Easter!

Cheers,
Josie

They were good stories. Very creative indeed. I can't imagine the judges in choosing one winner. It's a pity I was so busy and can't even find time. Who knows, I would have joined too.
HAPPY BLESSED EASTER to you and Betty.
