This has been the kind of week that has me thinking the second drink on that list has my name written all over it. We're buried in two new feet of heavy, wet snow, and a local meteorologist has just predicted hurricane force winds for Vermont beginning this evening. I'd say that's better than a stick in the eye, but if I venture out tomorrow I may have a chance to test the validity of that statement. Just last evening a twenty foot tree branch dropped in our driveway -
It's party time.
If you played along Monday, thanks! I know I made the games utterly annoying, but that's all me. Would you have expected anything less? Or more? Either way, I have to tell you that the e-mail responses I received were a laugh riot. It has been impossible to reply to individual messages, but know that reading them made my week. And for those who asked, the answer is yes - the squirrel really exists. I'm not that cruel. Just ask these ten people. Not only did they find that little bugger, they also answered all questions correctly and had the highest total score (combined height and distance) in the Cat-a-pult. Let's meet our winners! For the sake of simplicity I'm just going to list Cat-a-pult scores for each, since the answers to the pic quizzes were obvious.
1st Linda M. from Montreal 139,330 Yep, you read that right. I'll include a pic below to fend off disbelief. I have never even come close!
2nd Kristin G from Virginia 53,126
3rd Cynthia G from Connecticut 41,384
4th Hannah B from Oregon 27,839
5th Heather C from Georgia 20,486
6th Huskee and Hershey from Singapore 14,468
7th Maryann P from New Jersey 13,600
8th Andrea J from Ohio 13,113
9th Christine W from Maine 12,141
10th Traci L from California 11,628
Nice going players! I have to tell you that I wish I had enough prizes to send to all who played - you made this more fun than work for me, so thank you! Winners - please drop a comment here to acknowledge that you've found yourself in the list. An e-mail will follow.
Now let's look at two quick pics.
First, that high score. Impressive - despite what the cat may have to say.
And for the haters - that elusive, furry little rodent that had you squinting and cursing me is right...
Thanks to all who made this such a fun exercise. I cannot wait for the summer Olympics when we can do this again. And I'll make this promise in advance - no squirrels!
Have a great weekend and hug your dogs for us.
