And the Winner is
Saying for the Day: Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it. ~Hannah Arendt
It's Tuesday and time to reveal what you all have been waiting for.
Okay! what some of you have been waiting for.
Alright! what a few of you have been waiting for.
Well! Art least what the writers have been waiting for.
Story number one- Brea Linna ( My grand daughter)
Story number two- Lisa Heidle
Story number three- Charlene Amsden
Story Number four- Janet Nelson
Stories five and six- Lois Haglund
The seven judges were people from the St. Mark's congregation who don't read blogs. There task was simply to pick the story they liked best.
One writer got four votes.
One writer got two votes.
One writer got one vote.
The runner up with two votes was Lisa Heidle with story number two. She has the right to display on her blog or website the runner up symbol.
The winner with four votes was Charlene Amsden with story number three who now has the right to display the winner's symbol and will receive a plaque and a ten dollar gift card.
And now the writer's choice award. This is where the writer's themselves pick what they think is the best story.
I have discovered that writer's see things in a different way than ordinary people.
Every writer got one vote from another writer. That means we have a five way tie.
I found that so hard to believe that I went back and checked each E-mailed vote again and again.
So each and every writer has the right to display the writer's choice award.
News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. Despite whales, dragons, white rabbits, sets of twins, men in black, fake FBI agents, and ghosts work on the museum goes on. Every effort is being made to have it ready for a Grand Opening the first week of Pigeon Days. There have been a few setbacks. Twice the workers have arrived only to find all of the Petrovich exhibit removed from its room and scattered all down the hall. The house was locked up tight. There was no sign of breaking and entering. So the general feeling is it was ghosts. But the workers are now ignoring them and just putting the Petrovich exhibit back in place. So far it is only Petrovich’s room that has had activity.
Tommy TN ( The Nerd) has set up an exhibit in the foyer as you enter. It has a mechanical dragon run by a computer that flies across the room. Of course, you can see the wires it rides on and it doesn’t spew fire but it’s still impressive. He has a model lake with a diving whale as well. The exhibit is called Pigeon Falls legends. Tommy TN is still fine tuning it but it will be ready on time.
Pastor Joan has decided she has to do something about Tommy UK and Tammy not talking to each other. They are both acolytes at Last Lutheran Church and are now refusing to acolyte at the same service. She has arranged to see both of them in the Church Office tomorrow.
The Petrovich’s have gone to Green Bay to get the babies baptized. Mrs. Petrovich’s mother came up to help on the trip. Her father will meet the train. The twins are doing very well. Petrovich says they are the cutest little girls he has ever seen. He is having trouble telling them apart.
Today's Link-Allotment Lady-
This morning Betty went to Bible study then we went grocery shopping. I got the ingredients for a fancy bread I want to try. Then I read the latest issue of Classic Toy Trains or to be more exact I drooled through the latest issue. After that I worked a bit on the changes for Friday. Told part of this week's elf tale to my dragon who told me it was too convoluted. If there is anything I can't stand it's an honest dragon. Now I need a breathing treatment.
Sunday at St. Mark's
