Win or Lose its Friday

Its Friday and time to play my blog game. Sometime this morning Betty will draw one name from the names of all the people who commented on this blog and on the links during the week. there is one chance for each day on this blog and one chance for each comment on the LINK. so one could have fourteen chances. One , of course , is enpough to win f you are lucky.

We offer as the priceless prize of the day the same thingy we offered last week. Margaret turned it down and got what was behind the last door. But I still think it would be helpful for somebody. It will light your grill or your fireworks and keep your hand away from the fire.

If you win and don't want it there are the doors. You never know what's behind them. It could be six rubber bands and two pencils, or a bicycle reflector and three Christmas pop ups, or it could be a Christmas train, or wind chimes. You take a chance and see waht you get.

This week I have changed the doors. I seem to have trouble with colors so I got rid of those doors and we have two doors with numbers. If you win and want a door just leave the number in the comment.

We will draw sometime his morning. Good luck.

@@@@- News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and Last Lutheran might be getting a new Pastor-The council of Last Lutheran met with the Bishop last night who gave them the name of Joan Castle. Pastor Castle has been serving in a multiple parish which was her first call. The Bishop thinks she would be a good match for Last Lutheran. She is conservative theologically . She cares very much about people. She is married but her husband has a job that takes him all over the UP and so they can live anywhere .
Some members of the Council expressed reservations about calling a woman Pastor. Last Lutheran has never had a woman Pastor was said several times. Somebody said that the Bible says woman should be silent in the church. At times the discussion got very heated. That’s when the Bishop played his trump card. If they turned down Pastor Castle it would be at least six months before he found another candidate. That would be okay because Pastor Moe would be glad to stay another six months or more. On that note the council voted unanimously to consider Pastor Castle.
Pastor Castle would now be invited to preach a sermon and meet the members of Last Lutheran at a luncheon.

Today's Link-Unwoven-Some thoughts on what it means to be somebody's " The One". Leave a Dr. John in the comments.


Quilly- I have a feeling she doesn't need one of thingys because she is moving. But Quilly you can always choose a door. Leave your choice in the comments.
The morning was quiet. In the afternoon we went grocery shopping and mailed out the prizes to Kat and Margaret. We took my new scooter for the first time ( pictures next week). We discovered there was no way we could get it into the van using the ramp I bought for it. So we took it apart and loaded the three pieces in. It wasn't easy. Then we went to the grocery store where we took it out and put it together. It worked fine. I enjoyed grocery shopping. Afterward a nice lady stopped and helped us put it back in the van , again in three pieces. It is going to give me considerable freedom. There is a basket in the front where I can put my oxygen bottle. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Maybe a woman is the right man for the job of getting those Last Lutherans straightened out.

Poor Pastor Moe -- how sad to live your life as a weapon of torture.

Dr. John, by all means, send it to Friday Harbor. It might come in handy on our camping trip. Thank you!

I just clicked on "and the winner is" and there was no name, does this mean I still have a chance?

SOMEHOW, I CAN PICTURE YOU BECOMING QUITE A HOT-RODDER ON YOUR MOBILITY UNIT! ... Maybe racing kids on their bikes? Hope you solve the problem with the ramp; maybe a good welder could help?

Catching up from being gone a few days.

Our former church had husband and wife team pastors. We liked her very much.
