Win or Lose it's Friday

Saying for the Day-Of course I believe in luck. How otherwise to explain the success of some people you detest?

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.
2: Be willing to supply your mailing address.

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:
Beautiful butterfly and heart soap. Just what you need to make your bathroom the most beautiful room in the house.
Of course if you are don't like fancy soap 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 to do the drawing. Good luck everybody.

@@@@@@News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and a legend is born-Legends are made up of some historical fact mixed with local myth. So it will be of the developing legend 0f "Queen Polly and the fight against Darkness". We know that Pigeon Queen Polly, at the suggestion of Mayor Trumble, went to see her Pastor Joan Castle. We know that Polly went into the church at 2:00 and it was very dark. We know she met with Pastor Castle. We know she left the Church at 3:00 in the bright sun light. We know that she then resigned as Pigeon quuen. We know Mary Risingsun , who had ben the runner up then became Queen. That is all we know. That all took place yesterday.
Today somebody stopped in to Nancy's for a cup of coffee and gave this version . Pigeon Queen Molly had a dream in which she was told that the darkness had come because Risingsun was not Queen. To get rid f teh drakness Polly had to goto her Pastor and confess that she had lied to the
judges . She had to receive forgivness. Then she had to renounce her position as Queen. Following the dream she did all of that. At the moment that Risingsun became Queen the darkness lifted and was gone forever.
You can see there was only one fact there but the rest could be true. Think of what the story will be like a year from now when it has been told and added to a hundred times.

Today's Link-Usless Advice- On the problem of the little finger. Leave a Dr.John in the comment.
Now we wait for the drawing.
The drawing took place and the winner is-

Dum, Ta, Ta , Dum, Ta Dum


Congratulations. Now you need to let us know if you want the soap or take a chance on a door.
I have to apologize to Janvangogh . I was not clear enough in my instructions. One must either take the prize for the day or pick a door by number. .
She picked door two. Behind door two was our grand champion package. It contains not one rubber band but five. It also contains not one but two pencils.
How lucky can you get?
A full day. The day began with Spanky scratching Maggie's eye. we had to take Maggie to the Vet. She will be fine. Then we went to Fleet Farm and got a dog run. Somehow we even got it into the van. Went to Country Buffet for lunch. Then we worked in the basement and finished the second big table for the train set up. Played some computer games with Luke. It was a great day. Soon my wife will be back and I need a breathing treatment.

So, the light has come back to Pigeon Falls. Does that mean the danger of it falling into the earth is over?

Have a good weekend!

So what did Queen Polly lie to the judges about?

Is Petrovich still waiting on the rest of the driblet?

I'd play the lottery more often if the odds were as good as your contest.

Have a good weekend, you guys!

And the dream lives on
in the land of the rising sun

At the moment that Risingsun became Queen the darkness lifted and was gone ...
till nightfall came round again
to give us rest before the new day

Aaah will the Sun and Moon ever meet and steal a kiss, or will they continuously chase each other like lovers across the sky
