Ooooo Sorry, I somehow missed the last two comments.

Quote:
Equill: Look around.... see any acorns or nuts? How about pine cones? Most of the fruiting trees dropped and about the only thing clinging out there that I can see are buckthorn berries
Quote:
Sage: We drove over a hundred miles yesterday in two countries and I didn't see any pinecones!!! Aaaacccckkkk!
Quote:
Dapjwy: Smile. I was wondering where I'd find some photogenic pine ones or acorns myself.
Ewe...With all the talk about not having any photos of those stored to fall back upon (YES they'd be eligible) nor wanting to go forth to look out doors at this time of the year for them (We've plenty of them "here") And receiving private suggestions about holding off on the contest along with waiting for Will-O-Wisp to buy a camera I'm afraid we've skidded into a spin.
Quote:
W.G.: Let's fire up this contest after Will-o-wisp has a camera.
Who is judging this contest; me or you?
We could still DO the contest but it is so very important that I receive the promised monetary donations from those that originally agreed to join in.
With out those, we could still hold the contest, but there wouldn't be enough to purchase the "said" prize unless others jump in.

Show those hands! Shall we move forth and go ahead with the contest as planned?
If so, I can start one up next week upon my return with W.G. Admin stepping in as our judge.

Acorns..... they've all dropped months ago. It's just the way it goes with acorns. Female cones... that's mostly what's left.... contain the seeds. Animals that eat that seed to survive will be whittling away at our kodak moments. The other thing is.... female cones are usually... not always.... higher up in trees than male cones. That could make taking photos tough.

I really think this contest would be better later in the year even if stored photos are allowed and with or without a prize for it. If it were me.... and it's not... I'd run with October 15 through January 15 just because this is for acorns AND pinecones. Running with 90 days starting next fall would give willo plenty of time to research and buy that new camera she wanted and it'd give the rest of us time to start looking around and I dunno about you but... brrrrrr.... it's 4 by me right now.... I begrudge having to walk dogs at this time of year!!!

I've still got the $10 in an envelope in your box with your little owls and some silk plants... I was planning on handing the whole box to you on March 9th but.... it wouldn't be any problem at all dropping it in an envelope if you want it before then. And if for any reason there's not enough $$$ to get the single or the triple windchimes..... no biggie.... you could just ferret that $$$ away for another acorn and pinecone type contest.

hava> Are any of your kids around? Do you want to try that on your own or do you want me to call you on the phone and talk you through it? Once you do it.... you'll be able to do it again. You've got Microsoft Publisher or you wouldn't have been able to open and save those files!!! You're half way there baby!!!!

Write that you need it on a stickie note then stick it on the front of your computer and look at it every day then stick another stickie on your frig and then when you know he's coming home.... write it on your hand and hold it out of the bathtub when you take a bath so the ink doesn't run!!! That's what I do when I need to remind them to do something for me otherwise.... I call them on the phone and dump remembering in their laps. That works real well too!!! 1 more trick I started using is I take a crayon and write what I want on the mirrors in their bathrooms. I've been doing that more and more ever since I found out that a single edge razor blade scrapes off all the crayon easy peesie!!!
