Friday- Win or Lose

SAying for the Day:

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 in the week gone by.

THE RULES:
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)


Next Betty or her designated replacement draws one of those slips and that person wins the Priceless Prize.

Today's Priceless Prize is this cute bear with fish.


If you don't like bears take a chance

on a door.
Behind one of the doors today are two globes. One with a camel and one with a snowman.
Behind the other ...........
Good Luck.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and it is very cold.– It snowed a little last night. Just enough for a light dusting and to leave the ground white. The temperature seems to have leveled off at zero.
The two sets of scientists ( the government and the we don’t trust the government) started testing yesterday. They flew weather balloons. They checked radar findings. They had airplanes fly over. They gathered data. Both groups have now announced there is no upper air inversion or disturbance. Above and around Pigeon Falls everything is normal. It simply should not be this cold and there should be no snow. One government scientist has suggested this is a mass delusion. There really is no snow and it really isn’t cold. Tommy UK pointed out to that group that last night he walked on the Lake of the Loons. Either he has magic powers or the ice on the lake is no illusion. Further the national TV networks took pictures from the air of the snow in and around Pigeon Falls. You can’t take pictures of illusions. One of the scientists from the other group said that kind of thinking should be expected of the government scientists who are really more politicians than scientists.
Petrovich says that this failure of the scientists is predicted in the driblet seventy seven. “ The king’s men can’t help”.” The king’s men know nothing”. Since there is no king the government men are the same as King’s men.
Petrovich had to take some time to work on his website which was not operating properly yesterday. It is now back to full function. Along with trying to understand the driblets so that he can find a way out Petrovich is also writing a short history of the Monk and seer Alexis Grengicoff whose driblets Petrovich translates and to some degree interprets. When it’s done he will post it on his website. He is thinking of moving his website to a new home. He said “ I pay good money to A Lutheran Pastor for that website. He should keep it working. It’s not like blogger which is free.
Will the snow ever stop? Will the pigeons return? Will the fat lady sing? Does the lady have to be fat? Is a government scientist really a contradiction in terms? And of course is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid? Not a single one of these questions will be answered tomorrow but perhaps the next day.

Betty has drawn and the winner is










Quilly


Wow Quilly again and I haven't even mailed out last week's prize yet. Congratulations Quilly.
Worked in the basement this mormning. Then after the Soaps I put some items out to Free Cycle of Neenah which has to be the slowest Free Cycle in the country. Then I put a child's bed up for sale on the Neenah sale group. It was posted ten minutes after I sent it. Now I need a breathing treatment.

If I were that Lutheran pastor, I would be suspicious of Petrovich's offer of paying "good money". Has anyone actually ever seen Petrovich work?

That Quilly sure is a winning fool. I got mine, by the way, like a week ago. Thank you. I will be posting about it this weekend. I'm so behind.

I shall bear the burden of winning twice in a row and accept the bear ... thank you. (He may find that fur coat unbearable in Hawaii.)

lol, Dr John
What is real and what is not
for some its too hot for some not hot enough, or in Pigeon Falls case
for some its too cold, for some not cold enough.

But walking on water is a not unfrequent illusion, alas one I have not mastered yet.
I still need a jet-ski (water skies, snow skies or ice skates)

That bear is so cute. I know I'm late for it, but there is always a next week right?
How are you and Betty. It has been quite some time since I've dropped by.
