A Little Bit Of A Mystery!


So I know ya'll are all wondering about the other penny, right?  Well, the saga drug on for a while.  Jack and I both were sick of eating cupcakes so we talked Allen into coming down and eating more.  It was strange that it just kept getting down to fewer and fewer cupcakes and still no penny.  Finally, we got down to the last two.  Erin and Sal; which wold it be?  I mustered up the stomach for one more while Allen took the other one.  We chewed slowly, wondering which one would hold the prize.  Then....we realized neither one did.  What??  Those were the last two??  What happened to the other penny?  Allen and Jack laughed at me!  Are you absolutely sure you put TWO pennies in the batter??  Yes!!  I know I did!  Ya'll saw me!  I could not figure out what went wrong.  Had one of us accidentally eaten one of the coins?  You'd think we would have noticed that.  We thought and thought and scratched our heads but we never did figure it out or determine where that other penny got off to.  So..................





 I put everybody's name (sans Pablo) back into a bowl to do this the old fashioned way.  I counted to make sure everybody was there!


I stirred them up good and got Grendal to draw!  She sniffed around for some time but finally picked one.  Actually, I closed my eyes and drew one.  And..............








I know that's actually Peg on Vancouver Island but I was short on space.  Anyway, congratulations!  Email me your address Peg and chose your mug from that original picture.  Remember Pablo got the most red one.

I'll be back to posting soon.  Jack has still been under the weather and I've been rather sick the past 2 days myself.  Plus, the weather is awful dreary and rainy and has just sucked the enthusiasm right out of me.  I hope to have some more interesting stuff soon.  I've got some recipes and other things in mind and am even going to do a separate food page on here.  I don't know why I didn't think of that sooner.

Thanks, Grendal!!
Wow, how nice to win a piece of your beautiful pottery. I like the one on the far right of the pic. Actually, I like the handle-less large mug in the background!!

I am a tea drinker, so it will be my tea cup from now on and I will think of you as I enjoy my tea!!

My address is Peg Challender

Hope you are both feeling better. It is beautiful and sunny here today and would be a perfect day to sit in the sun and hope to kill the cold germs.

Hope you and Jack are feeling better soon. Maybe too much cupcake eating...or maybe one of you DID swallow the errant cent? This was Avery fun series of posts and sure had me checking back,even if (sigh) my name didn't come up :(

Maaan, I thought we were friends! So much for you. I had planned on giving it to "someone for a wedding gift". Vancouver! Of all places. I'm hurt, Hurt I tell you! Now I have to buy one. Really I'm going to buy another when I get some money. I am so paranoid about that cup breaking. I won't let anyone touch it. I move it far away from the edges of any counter. I love that cup. Matter of fact, I named it Pooky. He was so looking forward to having a friend. Oh well, Congrats Peg. Tell Jack I hope he feels better. Grendal?

That is hilarious!! This was a lot of fun. I feel extra special just getting my cupcake splashed all over the innernets.

Sal in Maine said...

Bummer! Guess I'll have to buy mine after all.. I'll send you an email for particulars in a day or two...

My mug arrived today!

(Intestinal blockage on the way perhaps?)

I knew that penny was stuck to the wrapper on the bottom of my cupcake. I should have taken out insurance.

Hey Peg! Great! I'll send it to you tomorrow! I drink tea myself instead of coffee. Here's hoping the rain is gone for a while here and it will be sunny! And I believe this will be my first piece of pottery to venture into Canada.

Hey Bea! thanks! yeah, I don't think all those cupcakes helped too much! ha! Glad you enjoyed the contest.

Hey Dan! Weeeeell, what can I say man! I can't play favs! lol! Pooky is a good name for a mug.

Hey Erin! thanks for being a good sport! I can't believe we didn't find that other penny. I will wonder about that forever.

Hey Sal! Sorry!! But thanks for playing!

Hey Pablo! God let's hope not!!

Hey Ed! I swear I looked at all the wrappers! lol! generally because I'm greedy and want to make sure I'm getting all the cake!

This is just too funny! You still might find the missing penny but I'm pretty sure we won't need to know about it!

HermitJim said...

Never a dull moment when we come to your house!

Not sure I can stand this much fun at my age!

You did good, my friend! Sorry to hear than you and Jack are under the weather!

edifice rex said...

Hey Lisa! ROLF! I don't think I want to know about it either!

Hey Jim! well, I'm glad everybody enjoyed it so! thanks; we are both feeling better at this point.
