Friday-Win or Lose

SAying for the Day:Common sense is very uncommon. (Horace Greely.)

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.

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.a snow globe with snowman.

If you don't like snow globes take a chance on a door.
Behind one of our two doors today are the usual pencils and?

Behind the other ...........

Don't forget the 953 contest. Guess when I will make my 953 entry. Put the date in the comment.

Good Luck.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and there is a little warming-The temperature went up to ten below zero. This caused some people to think that this crazy weather might be coming to an end.Perhaps they won’t need a power woman singing some kind of song. It could just go away. But along with the small rise in temperature came another light dusting of snow which might say that this is not over yet.
Mrs. Warren Maki is upset because she has to dry her clothes in her electric dryer. She much prefers line dried washing. But now if you hang anything out it freezes solid and still has to go back in the dryer.Well at least the neighborhood dog can’t get to her sheets in the dryer.
While Kivi & Maki are selling lots of those super coats Wink’s Woods is selling these things you strap on your boots or shoes and they help to keep you from falling down. This cold weather has produced a lot of ice. The cold weather has already caused two broken hip and a mashed elbow. All of them sent to the hospital in Iron Mountain.
Yesterday Jack closed and drained the Sauna. He held out as long as he could.
Will this weather come to an unsung end? Will Mrs. Maki dry outside again? Will people be able to walk down Pigeon Falls main street without having to strap something on their shoes? Will Jack’s ever open again? And of course is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid?

Today's Link-Oh The Joys-A nice happy little blog.
Finally Betty is back from taking Bree to the Doctor.

She has drawn

The winner is.....


Congratulations Stacy.

Well It has been one of those days. My graddaughters asthma acted up and Betty took her to the doctor. She came home with a breathing machine like mine.Now we can both take our breathing treatments at the same time.I was sick again. I got up late. then had trouble with this computer. It wouldn't open my comments or comments on any other blog. I slept off and on most of the day. Now I am feeling a bit better. I need a breathing treatment.

Hey, my Friday Win-OR-Lose prize came yesterday. How did you know I needed rubber bands?!

I absolutely loved the paperweight with my photo inside. Thank you!

So do clothes hung outside to dry in freezing weather suffer freezer burn?

"Common Sense is uncommon"

Common sense can't be learned, bought or taught, you are born with it...or you're not

...and then there are those who have none.....doesn't matter if the glass is half full or half empty if you insist on setting it on the edge of a rickety table...haha

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. just to much going on to blog that much.

Hey - does Bree have a neb mask shaped like an elephant? MB had one for a while shaped like a rhino. Is your's shaped like an animal.

Can I guess November 17 (if I didn't already)? If I guessed that one already, can I guess October 28? It was one or the other that I guessed.
