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.

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 marvelous snowman globe.

If you don't like camels take a chance

on a door.
You could win two paper clips
A treasure Chest
Something else!

Good Luck.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and it’s cold.– There was a heavy frost in Pigeon Falls last night. Petrovich says that it fits right into driblet seventy seven. Eino says that’s nonsense. The heavy frost went as far as Green Bay in Wisconsin. You might as well say that the driblet pertains to Green Bay.
Petrovich says it’s not just the frost it’s the “City of the Birds”.
Eino says that “City of the Birds could be any town anywhere with birds in the title. There is an Eagle’s Nest in Austria, and one in New Mexico. There is even a Bird City in Kansas. Why does it have to be Pigeon Falls?”
Petrovich responded with the fact that everything in the driblet fits Pigeon Falls.
It was still cold this morning as the milk train came in. In fact there was a touch of snow in the air and it’s just September.
Nancy and her new husband will be coming back Sunday. They are coming back from the warmth of Florida to the frost of Pigeon Falls.

Today's Link-Illustrations & some other stuff- Scroll down and take a look.

The Drawing is over

and the winner is

Tun Ta Dun Tah Da


Congratulations Quilly- Perhaps you should take the snow globe as you won't be seeing much snow in Hawaii. Quilly choose door number two. She has had enough of snow. Behind door number two was our magnificent, almost magical desk set. It consists of two genuine ball point pens and a extra heavy paper weight.
This was a busy day. I ordered some flower bulbs, made arrangements to sell a bunk bed, put some k-net stuff up on free cycle, visited most of my links, and watched my soaps. I started the process to get a portable oxygen concentrator. Betty got called and told her that her lab test showed she has high cholesterol . Now she has started on pills. Both of us worked for a bit in the garage. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Dr. John, no snow globes, thanks. I plan to live a snow-free life. (The way my luck goes I have probably just assured Hawaii of a blizzard.) I think I would like to be surprised by whatever is behind door number 2, thank you.

I suggest [smirk] that you send the snow globe to Eino in Pigeon Falls.

lol Dr John, you mean fully grown?
even humans have to gestate, and then pass thru the three stages: infancy adult hood and old age, unless they get hit by disease, a car/bus/train or a bullet first.

A day can be like a billion years or even two and a bit, so 13.7 billion years that still means One could rest on the seventh day

congratulations Quilly!

I had to laugh at Quasar's comment about shark meat. And to answer his question about has anyone ever been pulled alive from out of a whale- What about Jonah? But then, he was barfed out not pulled out...

You know it could be that Polly Stir confessed too much to Pastor Castle. Maybe that had a boomerang effect, going from dark -- to white. In Pigeon Falls, all things are possible.

BTW, Betty should try eating oatmeal every day. It worked for me to help reduct cholesterol.

Snow globes are fun...until you manage to break them. You know, I found my great grandmother's (she died in 1993) Beatrix Potter musical toad. It is dated like 1950 something. It still works.

I was called unchristian because the anon poster didn't like my "name calling" (femi-nazi). Sorry, but I call it like I see it. Besides, there's a big difference between judgment on someone and a personal judgment.
