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:
A beautiful ceramic angel with a Pigeon on her lap (Ok it could be a dove). Her wings have places for your two favorite pictures.

Of course if you don't like angels or Pigeons you can choose a door.
What's behind the door ?
It could be;
2 wonderful rubber bands
2 never used pencils (not even chewed on)
2 Christmas pop-ups.or
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.

@@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and the Queen has no clothes.– Last night the judges for the Pigeon Queen contest met to decide if Polly Stir should be excluded from the contest because what seems to be a nude picture of her had shown up on the internet. They met first with Polly that says it couldn’t be her picture. She wouldn’t do anything like that. She didn’t know how that picture got on the internet. After Polly left the judges met with Tommy UK. Tommy said he had known Polly for a long time and she wouldn’t do anything like that. “But” the judges, said, “there is the picture.” That’s when Tommy UK showed them pictures of all the candidates naked. All the pictures looked genuine. Tommy said they were all fakes . They were made by a friend of his with some special computer software. The judges agreed to leave Polly in the contest.
While this was going on the town Council met and passed a resolution calling on the judges to exclude Polly for the sake of the town’s reputation. They pointed out that the Pigeon Queen must be of high moral character and people who put nude pictures of themselves on the internet don’t fit that description.
In the meantime Petrovich has finished translating driblet 119 (except for a tiny piece of missing manuscript) and posted it to his website. He points out that this section fits Pigeon Falls:
When she who would be Queen of the city of birds is seen without clothes. When she is seen not just in the city but all around the world as her picture is carried on the air like dust.
The rest of the driblet can be seen by clicking HERE . Perhaps, this time the people of Pigeon Falls should listen to him. With all those old Iron Mines the earth could open up and swallow the town.

Today's Link-Mom is Nutz- Look at what she said to the poor kid. Leave a Dr. John in the comment.

The drawing has taken place.

The winner is


Congratulations. Stacy. Let us know in the comment if you want the angel or a door.
So the angel is going to have a new home. I had a good day. Breathing was a bit easier. I watched my soaps. I played some computer games. I watched the dog. I loaded a movie up to u-tube for tomorrow. I got last week's winner's prize ready to mail and checked three times to be sure I am sending it to the right place. I got my sisters copy of the April blogs in an envelope and ready to go. Now I need a breathing treatment. ( I said life was better not less dull)

I think the missing part of the driblet has something to do with TommyUK -- not that I think that Petrovich gets anything right.

I bet Tommy UK finds more pictures.

Oh my goodness! Prizes at this early point in a dreary Friday. What a nice surprise. I'd like the angel, please? I'll keep my "angels" in her wings.

Those prophecies are scary. Can't someone photoshop clothes on the queen so we don't all perish?
