Friday -Win or Lose

Saying for the Day:

Today's Priceless prize-This beautiful small Dickensville building. It would look great in a little Christmas village.

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.

If you don't like porcelain 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–Tonight the New Potatoes play there last game of the season. If they don’t win it will mean a season of nothing but losses. This is the worst possible tragedy for those who find their self worth in the success of the team. Down at the Fly Inn where every single man know he could do a better hob of coaching there is talk of demanding that the school fire the coach. Every week these leaders have rehashed every play of the last loss. They know just what should have been done. “This coach has made us a laughingstock !” one says, “We can’t hold our heads up” says another. They want a coach that can coach. One like that Kangas guy in Manistique who took his team from a losing season last year to the playoffs this year. “Now that man can coach” Hank McGregoir said just before he left the bar for the night.
Nancy says there were a couple of Fly Inn regulars that stopped in to her place this morning and asked her to circulate a petition to get the coach removed, The honor of the community is at stake. Nancy refused. She says the coach is a good guy who does the best he can with what he has. The two men said they will never come into her pace again. Nancy wasn’t upset. Her place was never where they did their serious drinking. One of the wives stopped in to Nancy’s later and told her not to worry. Her husband always goes a little crazy over sports, He wanted the last Green Bay coach tarred and feathered and run out of town,

Today's Link- Dan's Den- The happy story of a man and his car.

Betty is up and has drawn

The winner is ..........


Congratulations Yummy

It was a great day today. I visited all my links. Now I am a fountain of usless knowledge. Then the track came. Betty and I spent most of the day in the basement laying track. The track for the first module except for the trolley line is laid. We trued an engine and it ran without any trouble after we moved the track a little. I hope to get some pictures and run them on the blog next week. It has begun. Now I see that my railroad car sold on eBay for a bit more than I expected. Now our problem is shipping a 16" long car. Now I need a breathing treatment.

They want the coach removed, yet they do nothing about Petrovich! Hmmmm, maybe Petrovich should become the coach.

I am looking forward to seeing the new layout. I love trains, real ones and small ones. We used to have a six car set of Lionel Train and track that we ran under the Christmas tree, it was from the 60's. But we don't have it anymore, moving and garage sales......and no more trains. I miss it every Christmas.
