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 is very slow at sending out prizes.
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.

To take part in the contest you must
1: Have commented on at least one entry on this blog in the last week.

For every day that you left a comment we write your name on a slip of paper that is placed in our rose colored drawing bowl. So if you commented every day you could have 7 slips in the bowl.
( The more slips the higher your chance to win)
If you commented on the Link of the Day and put Dr. John in the comment you get one more slip. If you commented on the Link every day that's a total of seven slips.

You could therefore have 14 chances at winning the Priceless Prize.

Next Betty or her designated replacement draws one of those slips and that person wins the Priceless Prize. Which today is COOL MAGIC - 15 magic tricks.

Now if you hate magic or have too much magic you can choose to take what is behind one of the doors. It could be;
2 wonderful rubber bands
2 never used pencils (not even chewed on)
2 Christmas pop-ups.
2 ceramic houses for a Christmas village
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.

Congratulations Nea. There is magic in the air. But if you don't want magic then pick a door.\
It was a pretty good day.It was easier breathing. I worked in cleaning up my links in the morning. I have to finish that yet. Then I watched my soaps. Pat and his boys got here while Pennie, Bree, and Betty were bringing the dog home from the clinic. All the boys had gone to see Harry Potter and enjoyed it. Now I need a breathing treatment.

So many overlapping activities. How does the townsfolk of Pigeon Falls keep it all straight? Do they have to dress up in old time clothes for the spouse carrying contest?

Congratulations Nea.

Wow, Pigeon Days - nothing like that around here in my small town. The tourists won't allow it. =O(

But west of here we do have our annual redneck games. That is always a hoot.

glad you had a better breathing day. did you not go see Harry Potter too? i know you like the story.

i loved Josie's comment. very beautiful and true.

my cpack got downloaded today. it showed a big decrease of my sleep apnea episodes. i'm down to about 3 an hour, whoo-hoo!!!
it shows all sorts of things. like how many hours i wear it: 4 hrs is about right for me, straight too..from about 1.5 hrs of sleeping before (can you imagine how good the difference is) and if the mask fits properly: not too much they send me home with 2 nostril pluggy thingy's and see if that is bette..will let you tells them @ what hour i go to sleep and how many times i get up's pretty amazing all in all, the machine has been a great blessing in my life, i'm most grateful.

Keka is now feeling better, she had 2 days of high, high fever out of nowhere and today she already woke up and was ready to be a monkey and no fever at is funny how quickly they spring back to normal isn't it?

i hope Betty's eye is doing much better and she is not bleeding or hurting.

here is hugs to you all and many good wishes for a restful sleep.

Wow that is magic, to win something when you aren't even did I win? i guess I was like that magic rabbit who gets pulled from the hat.....

Well, I think I will take the magic....I have a 12 year old son who loves magic........I think he will take this away from me.......

I am not even home yet, so no rush shipping, you can take your time . and thank you very much......I will be back home around wednesday of this week.
