Win or Lose it's Friday

It's time for the internet contest that requires no postage and handling fee.
The contest that requires no credit card.
The contest that doesn't even require your correct name.
Every Friday we give away priceless prizes to some lucky person who commented on this blog or one of the daily links in the week gone by.
If you left a commement we made a lotto slip with your name on it.( Limit one slip a day per this blog and one slip a day per the link). These are placed in our beautiful rose tinted drawing bowl. Sometime this morning Betty will draw the name of our winner.

Today's Priceless Prize is this beautiful blue Hippo with baby. It is also a bank. A chance to save money in the rare blue hippo.

Now if you already have enough rare blue hippo's or enough banks then you can take what is behind door number one or door number two. That changes every week and we never tell in advance what is the there. It could be;
2 wonderful rubber bands
or
2 never used pencils (not even chewed on)
0r
2 Christmas pop-ups.
or
2 ceramic houses for a Christmas village
or
a DVD
or
One of many other prizes. You pick the door and you take your chance.

Now all we need is Betty to do the drawing. Good luck everybody.

@@@@@News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my gargae where the trains still run, dragons fly , and people are waiting. – Pigeon Falls is waiting to see what the town council will do about selling land to the casino. Members of Last Lutheran are waiting to see if Pastor Castle will be coming as their next Pastor. Mrs. Trumble is waiting for a good shot at the dragon. Tommy UK is waiting for something that will make this the greatest summer ever. Tommy TW ( The Writer) is waiting for just a bit more inspiration to get him over a writer’s block. Nancy is waiting for the big wedding to Tommy TW. Eino is waiting for some answers to the many mysteries of Pigeon Falls. It seems that small town people have a lot of expectations and spend a lot of time waiting.
It as if they lived in a fairy tale and were waiting for the wicked witch or the fairy godmother. No matter how bad or good things get they know that something special is yet to come. So they wait.

Today's Link-The Rocky Mountain Retreat- Funny Cartoon not so funny life. - Leave a Dr. John in the comment.

We decided to let Bree draw today and she has picked:












Patterns of Ink
-Now he needs to let us know if he wants the blue hippo or what's behind one of the doors.

It was a good day. The two dogs are sometimes even funny. My grandkids are enjoyable. I watched my soaps. We got all the boxes out of the basement ( the empty ones). I finally got accepted by Neenah Freecycle. Now I need a breathing treatment.

When Tommy (the writer) figures out how to get past his writer's block, have him give me a call! Wishing you and Betty a great weekend Dr. John!

I found this over my lunch break. I won something. I actually won something.
I never win wonderful prizes--especially prized prizes like this.
I will, of course, gladly accept the hippo bank. My youngest loves hippos and has collected a few. Her favorite Christmas song is... what else... "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas."
I'll send you my address by email.
Thanks for the fun you create here!

Oh dear, Dr. John. I hope the Council doesn't sell land to the casino. Think what traffic that will bring. What..eeeek! "crime" that will bring! Think how many poor souls will lose their Friday paychecks. And all sorts of little knock off businesses will pop up along the road near the casino. Soon there will be a Trump Hotel down the street! I think they should put it to a vote and let the people of Pigeon Falls decide.

I am waiting for the rain to stop, my laptop to be prepared, and the Harry Potter novel.
