The Winner Is--

I ended up with 21 eligible comments. Eligible meaning one per day excluding my daughters. I used Excel's random number selection, and -- drum roll please-- Lisa J from 'My New Thing To Do' is the winner. Congratulations! If you will send me your mailing address via this email address - shirleysmith@astate.edu - I will send your tea towels off in the mail to you. I have enjoyed playing this little game, hope you have too.

Now on to other important things. Did you watch Dancing With The Stars last night? I was pleasantly surprised at Adam Carolla. I thought he did a pretty good job. I do think they are being too hard on Marisa. All three judges jumped on her. I thought she did a good job as well. The sad part was they were so hard on her, and then just oohed and aahed over Priscilla Presley. Which I admit, she has done well also. But it's almost like - let's get the fat chick! And being one myself, I don't like that.

I think the top ones will be Jason and Christi. He has such a smooth presentation, and she's just downright good. But if they are going to cut Carolla some slack, they should cut Marisa some as well. She may be a performer, but she's a singer, not a dancer.

Let me get off my soapbox. I will not watch the show tonight, I will watch Biggest Loser. I've decided that I just can't devote two nights a week to one show that they drag out for an hour and could be done in 10 minutes. I don't care about all the guest stars who sing and the dancing by others. Oh wait, I was going to get off my soap box wasn't I?

I've started cleaning out drawer space for my DIL and two grandchildren who are coming in less than two weeks to stay with me while they find/build a house. The chest I'm working on right now has a lot of family pictures in it, so you may get bored with seeing me as a child, my parents when they were young, and even some of those two daughters who seem to like to argue on my blog comments.

I also went to the chiropracter yesterday morning. I've had what I call a hitch in my get-a-long, but I was about past getting along. It hurt really bad when I walked on my right leg, and there was only one position comfortable when I was trying to sleep. When I left his office, I wasn't sure I was any better, but I stayed as still as possible at work, and by the time I got home, I was some better. But by the time I went to bed last night, I was a lot better, and even more so this morning. I'm going back Wednesday for another adjustment. I may not have to hobble this time.

Today is April Fool's day. Hope you don't get tricked too many times.

Have a happy Tuesday. Do something silly. Make someone laugh.

Oh what a WONDERFUL, HAPPY, BEAUTIFUL surprise!!!! I am a winner!!! I won something, I can't believe it, are you sure and not just playing an April Fools joke on me? You're not joking me are you???? I am very easy to get, I take things, hook, line, and sinker, so did you just get me or did I really win??? The best part??? I have something from a "new friend" that I admire for your talent that I can not, and never will be able to even come close to doing. I can't wait to show my aunt, my cousin, my mom, and my fellow bloggers. Oh I am so happy, I sure hope this is not an April Fools Joke!!!! You should know I would be suspucious by nature! It's the 22 years on the job. I am going to email you my address right now! woooohoooo..I am a winner.

Just remember I have not, nor will I sign a release to have any childhood pictures of me posted on your blog. And, when I find my birth parents, I'm sure they'll have enough money to sue you shoud you post any. I'm just sure I came from money. Congrats to Lisa for winning! Can I pick out pictures of Daughter #2 to put on here? Hehehe.

LOL... I can't wait to see the 'vintage' photos of you! I love looking through other folk's junk.... let's see pictures!!! Please? Surely your junk is more interesting than mine? LOL

So glad to hear that you got the hitch in your get-a-long taken care of....I feel a trip to chiropractor coming on as well, each morning I'm hunched a little further over trying to get up and out of bed! :) Have a great Tuesday!

Wish I had some of that junk food you fed Maddie Bug the other night. Will you come and feed me and my kids junk food tonight? I don't feel like cooking. Daughter #2 can't come though, she won't approve of the menu! You can sneak her kids over though!

So glad the chiropractor was able to fix the hitch in your gitalong! And I was zapped a bazillion ways for April Fools today. Ugh.
