Yesterday 85 and hot! Today 49 with 15-20 mph winds. Welcome to Minnesota. On another note, the contest bug has struck me. I played around this weekend and through my hat in the ring on a couple low effort versions. Speaking of low effort, but with wonderful payoff, over at Sluggy's site, Don't Read this, It's Boring, she is offering up a chance for anything but boring! This is a good one for US and Canadian folks to get a chance at some fine things to make us special this fall.
Drawings and give aways I like. I enjoy a silent auction as well, and will even buy a raffle ticket for a good charitable cause-thinking of it as more a donation than a real chance to win. I avoid state lottery's and other all out gambling games, if that is the right term. DH likes to get a Power ball every now and again, but I just don't get the urge. Joke is on me if he ever wins, but Minnesota is a shared asset state anyway, so he would need to share. I have sisters who love the pull tabs. Last week my brother was in town from Florida and a group of us went out before he head back a few days later. He and I were the only ones that didn't buy the little rippy things. $100 and 10 minutes, they had a pile of ripped pull cards to show for their investment. To each his own.
