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:( Very important)
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 cute little bear.
He will sit on your computer.
Could be used as a door stop.
Not safe around chewing dogs.

If you don't like little bears 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. One entry per day. First one with the right date wins.

Good Luck.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life goes on.– This weather is taking a toll on the citizens of Pigeon Falls, Two people are in the hospital in Iron Mountain with carbon monoxide poisoning as their old furnaces couldn’t handle the strain of this constant zero weather. One family is homeless as their house burned down because of some problem with the wood stove. There have been numerous frozen pipes and even sewerage back up from freezing. This is not the greatest of times for Pigeon Falls.
A special community prayer service has been planned for Sunday evening at Last Lutheran Church. All the churches are coming together to pray for an end to this weather. The service will be preceded by a pasty super served by the Methodist ladies with soup from the Lutherans. Nancy will cook the coffee.
At the same time the search goes on for the right song and the right singer that could possibly end all of this if the driblets 62 and 77 are to be believed . Somebody pointed out that in the professional wrestling coming to the Field House in Marquette there is a lady wrestler that has crossed lightning bolts on her outfit. Now that’s a power lady. Someone also thought that she used to be a singer or has an album now. Henry Freestrom went to talk to her in Green Bay but she thought he was insane and laughed at him. “Sing to end a snow storm! You gotta be kidding” she told him. A group of men over at the Fly Inn bar are talking about kidnapping her and making her sing the Pigeon Falls song. She would probably beat the tar out of them.
Will this ever end? Is the wrestler the key? Will more pipes break? How powerful is community prayer? How good is Lutheran soup? Can you dip a Methodist Pasty into Lutheran Soup? And of course is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid?

Today's Link-It's Jim- A really bad idea unless you live in your portable computer.

Betty is up. The drawing is done.

The winner is.....


Congratulations Susan. She had only one entry and won. Which shows it can happen but seven gives you a better chance.
Had a good breathing day today. Betty and I got a lot done in the basement where we worked in the morning and the afternoon. Now my grandsons have arrived and I need a breathing treatment.

I feel so guilty giving guesses everyday to the 953rd. =O(

But today I'll pick Oct. 22, 2007. 22 is half of my lucky number 44 - and it may be a charm.

Those poor folks in Pigeon Falls should be looking for that fella who froze all the nice folks (and some not-so-nice ones) from General Hospital back in the 70's. In the meantime, I have one spare bedroom in a nice warm climate.
