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 has no cumbersome blanks to fill out.
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 consists of three hand crafted glass candle holders with candles. These are hand-made pieces. Produced by skilled glassmakers trained in the intricate art of glassmaking.

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

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

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal.– Tommy TW , Nancy’s husband. Is still waiting for a publishing date for his novel “ Murder in the Sauna” . That’s the book that was originally entitled “Murder in a Small Town”. His editor says that Tommy TW needs to get a new spell checker. He is a very good writer but a very bad speller. He also is a little sloppy on details so that the same person shows up with a different first name in a couple of places. This was a minor character but editors are paid to find mistakes like that. In a few more days he should have the proofs and then the publishing.
Nancy says that next he should write a contemporary history of Pigeon Falls, Tommy TW says it would be too unbelievable. Who would believe that there is a town that has a dragon fly in on a regular basis? Or where a six foot white rabbit in a pink sweater hops by when it feels like it? Or that has a poltergeist that likes to pile dishes? Or a place where the whole community dreams the same dream and it almost kills them? Or where people turn to stone and back to people again? Or where the government sends in troops and quarantines the town for no discernable reason? Or where it is freezing cold while the countryside around it has a heat wave? Or where a little old lady is Mayor, calls herself dragon slayer, and defeats a professional wrestler? Or where some long dead Russian monk seems to have predicted much of what is going to happen? Nobody would believe it so he is not going to write it.
Tomorrow the big snow is gone celebration with the big street dance. One can almost bet the dragon will show up.

Today's Link-Atravovi-- A look at college life.

Betty has drawn

And the winner is

Dum Ta Da Tum


Congratulations Nessa- Now let us know if you want the Priceless Prize or a door.
Well I had another good day. I finished the fourth table. The staging for the layout is almost done. Betty and I cleared up another couple of boxes. I listed a Coca-Cola G Scale car on E-Bay. I hope my son Peter comes tomorrow and we can go to Menards to get the rest of what I need.
Now I need a breathing treatment.

The people of Pigeon Falls would buy a contemporary history book. They are probably trying to figure it all out themselves and having all the facts in one place will help them. It will be a big hit at Nancy's and she will sell alot of coffee as people discuss it. So Tommy TW will still benefit from his wife's coffee sales.

It took me a while to get here, but I made it. I like those candles. I was going to pick a door just for the fun of it, until I saw the candles. I like candles.
