Blue Creeper Award #3
« on: February 19, 2021, 01:48:47 PM »
Well it's that time of the week again, here we are awarding the Blue Creeper Award.  First I have to say that it was quite a contest.  Out of the gate it was neck and neck to the first turn with no clear leader, and then the whole "If you ain't rubbin' you ain't racing" came out and it was on.  So many posts, topics, quotes and responses. There were the lobbyists who PM with suggestions - all excellent and you know who you are if you sent them - admin meetings until way late in the night, votes, fellerbunchers (because we don't have filibusterers here), tie breaker votes, nominations, it's just endless I tell ya.

Back to the race, on the back stretch the lead changed a few times, the underdog made a good showing, then got tripped up in the mud and stumbled - over and out.  Coming into the final turn everyone was crowding the rail and still no clear leader.  Here they come, it's going to be a photo finish - oops, seems someone didn't post their photos correctly so no proof of victory can be offered up,  AND HERE THEY COME, the crowd is standing on it's feet YELLING!!!  And the winner is....

We interrupt this event for an important message from our sponsor....

And back to our regularly scheduled programming....

For those who didn't enter this weeks contest because they didn't think they would win, let me say there is no purchase necessary, but donations to the Admin staff sure help your odds, speaking of odds the contest is open to all members of the Forestry Forum and the winner does not need to be able to identify local hard woods that they may or may not encounter, handle, saw, or otherwise manipulate to remain eligible.  Odds of winning are approximately 1 in 54,946 and the ability to generate copious volumes of smoke and fire from household chemicals that are mixed up in a sawmill yard also increase chances of winning, as long as the sawmill does not burn down, in which case the members odds of winning go up in smoke.  You can enter as many times as you like and the winner has the option to select either a lump sum box of goodies or payment can be spread out over 20 years, just realize the stuff will all show up at once so you will be responsible for the whole 20 year thing.

So without further delay this weeks winner is   Timeout Error 416, System Reset, please try again later.

sorry to keep you all waiting, but I guess they did it to me.  :) I went to bed early, after working 4 night shifts, and as you can see by the time my days and nights are turned around.  This award means a lot, and could not have come at a better time.  Lots of work stuff, more than just the medical.  It feels like an extended family and I have great friends here, some I have never even met.  As well, you can tell from my posts, I will very much put these great products to work.  I wish my parents could be here... but that would be awkward as it is the middle of the night, and I may or may not be in my undies. :o :o :o.  Thanks all for making this place so informative, and fun to be a part of.  And thanks to Admin for all the support.  Thanks to Logrite and @Tam-i-am for the gift.  ...   That's weird, there is a lady in an evening gown taking my arm, and trying to get me to walk off ...  Oh I guess I have gone on too long.  Sincerely It is nice to be recognized and look forward to getting the great products.  THANKS!
