Moreidlethoughts Weblog

humour,art,gardens, books and whatever idle thoughts float through my mind (it's a very draughty mind.)



Some things take a little time…some things seem to take forever!

I’ve been off-line due to a landline fault. Apparently. All seems well again, but, of course, there is a backlog of stuff. Not to mention 143 items in the reader!

But…drum roll…I have three names from my comments . Just drawn at random- no dumb questions. Naturally, the draw was conducted under scrup scroupu very ethical conditions.

Rusty and Sporran making the first draw.

Rusty & Sporran make the first draw

Of course, they insisted that being roused from a nap to hook bits of paper from a hat would cost a “little something.” However, bribed with a few crunchies, they drew:

First…Pearl, from Feline Fine.

old magic lino

(Although I suspect Pearl’s person will claim the print!)

Rusty drew Hilke.

Geiger had disappeared so Sporran scrabbled in the hat, found one more crunchie and drew…Ziggi!

nelsonPerhaps not as exciting as a brisk canter on the  Fredster, but I hope you like it, Zig.

So, ladies, if you’d email me     and let me know your postal addresses, I’ll lasso a snail and send the prints on their way.

And thankyou, all of you, for sticking with me, even when I don’t have much to say.

I suppose I should go through that reader list…one hundred and HOW MANY!

Back again soon…

  2. Thanks, Hilke. And I’ll have the fish swimming to Bonn early next week.


  3. I’m envious of Hilke.


  4. wow! how exciting! I’m so chuffed, I love owls and thank you so so much!


  5. andrea…well I’ve always been fond of your fishbones. Loved the old avatar!

    ziggi…are you home yet? Let me know your address and I’ll give the owl the coordinates!


  6. Well, I missed the entire 3 questions thanks to my faulty wireless router taking me off line for over a week. So pleased to see Hilke won your lovely print – you’re right, her books are wonderful and she’s also very generous in her sharing of knowledge.


  7. carol…I scrapped the questions when I realised not all readers would have seen my original bio at blogger.
    Routers and landlines have conspired to keep us both out of the loop, but here’s hoping!


  8. Oh man!! I never win anything and I’m so excited that I was the first one drawn. My address is on the way.



  9. zizzi(and Pearl!)…I just hope it doesn’t get stuck in your postal strike!
