I confess.....it were me :-/ :-/     I just thought those questions would find out just how savy the qualified entrants are when they get outside their territory AND a nice hat might just be enough to entice 'em.;D There is a rhythm to the contest and I'll see if the qualified entrants can figure it out. ::)

Wow! I can not believe my Luck!  Out of the pen just i week and not only a new suit, but a contest I really qualify for.  We got that Mag in the exercise area. I read it at lunch while on breaks from my duties as sawyer at the minimum security mill. (Sure am glad to be out of there, 10 years was plenty)

Well, the answers are as follows.


1 c
2 c
3 c
4 c
5 c
6 c
7 c
8 c
9 c
10 c

Did you know that here in Michigan Our red pine is actually the co-champion with the Minnesota red pine?

Michigan's tree actually has 5 more points (263 MI to 258 MN).

Did I win??
If so the guy that runs this site knows me and can vouch for the fact that I am "justin barnes" (And around them and actually all over! )

The winner is Justin Barnes of the Michigan State Prison!  Way to go Justin!  Just e-mail me your mailing address and your new patriotic hat will be in the mail! ;)  If I can't mail it directly to the prison, please send me the address of your best friend. ::)  I'm impressed that you knew all the answers without CHEATING!!  And, yes I knew about the Red Pine. :P

State Prison? Where did you get that? Justin Barnes is a farmer and was talking cleaning Pig Pens! Minumum security mill, means "Unsecured Loan", used to purchase a worn out "orange" band mill.

One thing you should know, it's not really Just-in Barnes, its sometimes all over the barn yard, and sometimes all over your shoes...

Sumpin is fishy here.

A mag that good would never make it to the yard in the prison I work at----the guards would be reading it, inmates would never see it. :o  Also the mag. would get pretty wet because unless it's the S.H.U. the yards are outside. If it was the SHU it would be torn to shreds.... Have to come up with something better than that one guys.  ::)  

But on the original scale it rates at the top. ;D

See what you started Charlie? Now Gordon thinks Justin is from the Prison. He NEVER said prison!  Exercise area would be the dining room.

(Most exercise he get's is pushing himself away from the table...)

Guess I better get out of the work mindset I guess. :D

Well I've got a three day weekend so that should be enough time to do it.Get out of the work mindset that is.
A new suit? Been shopping?
