Yes, while it is beyond me whym anyone would waste their time PM'in' me it is wonderment that that I now have recieved 986 PM's... Now, I'm sure that folks like LH and Kat amd Spaw get that many before breakfast every day but, hey...

...seein's as at least 90% ain't the "Go Fu*k Yerself" variety I'm sho nuff happy to have 'um but...

...with that said... Seems it's been on 986 fir a week 'er two... Yeah, I ain't been up to my troblesome self and ain't started no "Waht's This about Womenz" threads of late which usaully get the PMS PM's a' flyion'... Jus' funnin' ladies... I'm sho nuff sure that PMS ain't no more fun than getting kicked in the groin or worse, gettin' drafted...

Nevermind all that babble...

So here is the contest...

1. Only one PM per Catter between now and when it hits a 1000 so don't send me no "Screw up, Bobert" too fast or too slow...

2. No GUEST's allowed...

3. I will periodicaly post the PM count... and lastly and most important...

4. No cheatin'...

Prize, you say???

Nuthin...

(Now wait jus a danged minute, Bobert... You cheapskate... You gotta offer a prize 'er noone is gonna play...)

Okay, how 'bout an autographed Bobert CD???

(Yawn...)

Tough danged critic, I'd say... Okay, an autograpghed CD plus theree days and two nights, wonderful P-Vine cooked meals included in Bobert's '53 Spartanette trailer located in the picturesque Pine Grove holler in the Luray Valley???

(You clear this with the P-Vine, Bobert??? You know she warned you about inviting any more carzy people here without first discussin' it...)

Ahhhh, I can handle it...

So let the contest begin...

Oh yeah... If yer gonna send me a PM say something other than "Screw you, you radical commie hippie..." I got plenty of them in my collection all ready, thank you...

Well, dunno where I am in the queue, but I've sent you a PM, Bobert. I seem to be lucky with your contests. The peace of mind from the last one was very nice, thank you.

The Luray Valley is indeed picturesque, and not TOO terribly far away from me, so I'll take a crack at this contest... as long as I don't have to go visit 'til fall when all the purty leaves will be puttin' on a show (and the current heat waves will be over!). PM to be sent momentarily.

Sheesh, relax, everybody! Bobe said he wouldn't be back from his Blues Wednesday gig (yesterday) until tonight!! That's 07:00 PM or later, Mudcat Time, for all you globe-trotters.

He's just had a long hard night-into-the-wee-hours of guitar pickin', so let's just tiptoe away and let him rest his poor sore fingers for a few more hours. He won't leave us hangin' TOO long without giving us the contest results, I'm sure!

Wow, been away from the computer all day - my brother is visiting and he has been hogging my computer. Now that they've gone out, I jump back in, check this thread, and voila! I'm a Bobert contest winner yet again. Cool!

I'm really looking forward to hearing your music, Bobert, so a PM with my address is on its way!

From: Ebbie

I came up with a discomfitting theory a few years back. And that is: 'Winners', by their very nature are few and far between. The chance of my being one of them is slim. And if someone I know becomes a winner, there go my chances. In other words I am already in the lightning's neighborhood. In any group of people there will be only ONE winner.

Does that make sense to anyone else?


:) That sounds as though I am serious about being unhappy about it; I am not. In many other ways I have been extremely lucky in my life.
