Win or Lose it's Friday

Saying for the day-Some days you lose and some days you lose.Winning is not allowed.

It is time for that contest which is shaking up the internet.

Where we give away a priceless prize every week.

Where all you have to do to enter is leave comments.

One a day on this blog and one a day on the link.

For ever comment you get a chance.,

This week hasa many more entries than last week.

The priceless prize today is one of those thingies that you use to light your grill.
Or you could use it to light off fireworks ( if its legal in your state).

Now if you don't need one of those there are two doors. One orange and one blue.

Behind those doors - who knows. It could be six rubber bands and a paper clip. It could be a DVD about Stalin. It could be a Christmas train or six left over Christmas finger puppets. The one thing for sure is it will be different every week. You pick your door and you take your chance.

But first you have to be drawn.

The drawing will happen when Betty gets up and I finish adding in yesterday's comments.

One other thing, as Margaret and Stacy can tell you , don't expect fast delievery of the prize as I procrastinate a lot.

Good luck.

@@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life goes on as normal.– Next weekend the rodeo is coming to Pigeon Falls. It will be held at the old fair grounds where the stands are fairly solid. Most of the time it’s just used for racing old cars but once a year the rodeo comes. People are looking forward to it. It brings a little change into otherwise boring lives. The normal everyday things like washing clothes, fishing, snf taking saunas get tiring after a bit. The rodeo offers a little change of pace. Not that any of the local people have ever taken part in the actual rodeo events. Eino keeps saying he is going to ride a bull but he never does. No! The rodeo is just for viewing not doing. But it is coming and people can hardly wait.
Nancy and Tommy TW are now looking to be married in early September. For a short time they toyed with the idea of being married on Pigeon Falls Day. Then they could ride in an open car in the parade with a sign that said “Just Married”. It was such a romantic idea. Pastor Moe pointed out that to make the parade they would have to get married at 7:00 in the morning. So they gave up on that idea. Instead they will ride in the parade with a sign that says “ Soon to be Married”. They could of course change their minds again before the parade.

Today's Link-What a Life-AY! Que Vida!- Find out what you can learn from a dog. Then leave a housebroken Dr. John in the comment for a chance at next week's drawing.

One small change. we had my grandson Elijah do the drawing.



Congratulations Margaret. All those comments on the link of the day are paying off. Now let us know if you want the prize or to take a chance on the door.
So Margaret has picked door number three and passed up a lovely fireplace mantle cross. ( I see number two as orange while others seem to see it as red.
Behind the door she picked a wonderful DVD on Gardening. I will mail it out first thing after I mail out Kat's prize from last week.
It was a fairly good day. The grandkids got a lot done in the basement. Then they played with the dogs and on the computers. I took a nap. I finished the day playing canasta, Alex and I against Pennie and Betty . Alex and I won. Now it's late and I still need a breathing treatment.

Actually, Dr. John is very reliable when it comes to getting packages out from the Fortress. Most other places make us allow four-six weeks for delivery.

Mmmm, well I quit smoking so lighters are banned and Sunday's blog post will reveal the massive new addition to our backyard that lights itself by mental telepathy.

Red Doors can be tricky. It's been my experience that red doors are for emergency exits only. When you go through 'em, bells and sirens go off, the fire department shows up and the owner of the establishment seems to be very irked at you for doing so. Thus, I shall avoid bursting through the Fortress' Red Door.

That leaves the blue door, #3. I shall tiptoe over.... stick in this magic skeleton key. Turn it and....

"Pidgeon Falls ... the place where life goes on as usual." Riiight!

Th other day a high speed police chase ended abruptly at the tree in my neighbor's yard. The suspect tore into our complex with the police in hot pursuit. Apparently neither driver knew that this place is built in a cirlce, and the only way out is the way one came in. At any rate -- on their second circuit the young fellow being chased slammed his car into the tree in my neighbor's yard. The kid lept from the car and sprinted to the retaining wall. He went up and over. My neighbor, still dressed in his Air Force fatigues, went after him, and the cops were right behind. For me, that is life as usual. I would like to mov to Pidgeon Falls and enjoy a more sedate and normal existance.

I agree with Margaret. You're very good at getting packages sent, Dr. John. It's getting them sent to the right person that might be trouble. I didn't win last week's drawing. I didn't think I did, but then my memory isn't always what it should be so I went back and looked, it was Kat.
