    That sounds like two votes for
    no more contest.

    I can't say that I'd miss it...
    Then again... hiding the
    "did you see it?" stuff was fun.

    Oh!! So now we know!
    So... they were olives, falling?

    I really have no idea.

    I liked that part, the questions stress me out.

    Starting to see a trend here.

    So.... Maybe throw some
    "did you see its" in, with no pressure
    of a contest?

    My mom has a basement like that. She's lived in the same house since 1969. Yikes! :faint:

    Are you afraid of what you'll find down there?

    I've wondered how you keep up with everyone's answers. I couldn't finish one contest. Adding the "did you see it's" with no contest to keep track of sounds like a great compromise. Either way, I'd still read. Your TRs are very entertaining, contest or no.

    I'm afraid to TELL what I've found down there!:scared1: I have been removing things one or two at a time.
    "Mom, can I borrow the ice cream maker?" " Mom, do you have a bread maker?" :rolleyes1

    Okay!
    Like I said... seeing a trend. :)

    And... Thank you!


    :laughing:
    You're like my mom.
    It's my dad who can't let go.
    She just tosses stuff out
    from time to time.

    "Have you seen my ____?"
    Mom: "Nope!"

    I didn't say I threw the stuff out. In fact I now make homemade bread weekly.
    Some things are not salvageable and do go the route of the dumpster, but other stuff I try to sell. Like the mounted deer head, now hanging in my garage because the guy buying it changed his mind. :sad:

    Yes like everybody I would read your reports whether there was a contest or not but I do like the hidden items. You know like everybody is always looking for Hidden Mickeys or Where's Waldo.
    We even find Hidden Mickey's at home - like the time I found one in the snow/salt on my sidewalk.

    :offtopic: did you see this nice poster for Long Beach? :car:
    Guess the count down is starting? Daytona is this weekend for the Nascar folks and soon Indy car will be starting.
    Just have to get over the Olympics. Are you watching any of the doubles curling since Kaitlyn Lawes is from your town? :rainbow:

    I like that. I'm too competitive as is @Steppesister. I like finding the funny pictures but not having to guess at how long it took you to get somewhere or whether or not you rode whatever ride....

    I know you didn't.
    Mom's not throwing out anything
    of value.
    But there's enough crap,
    that some she does toss.


    Grrrr... I hate that.
    Almost as much as I hate this:

    "Hey is that still for sale?"
    "Yes it is."
    "Great! I'll take it."
    "Okay. It's yours."
    "Terrific. I'll be there in two hours to pick it up."

    Two hours later.
    "Hi. I'm almost there! Two more minutes."
    "Sorry. I sold it."

    Okay, I'll add you to the growing list. :)

    Did you do the salt on purpose?

    ::yes::
    March 11 in St. Petersburg.
    Good reason to go to Florida. :)

    I'm trying to watch whatever is on,
    whenever I have a free moment.

    She's from my town? Huh!


    (Just kidding. ;))

    Okay. Got your vote too.

    I think y'all are making this
    decision a bit easier. :)

    You could still toss in a 'Did you see it?' where you felt like for fun! No official contest needed!

    That's what I was thinking.
    Maybe posting "Did you see it"
    and next update showing where they were.
    No points. No contest.

    Nope just happened when the snow melted around it. Of course I would notice it. We have even found hidden Mickeys in old spills in parking lots.

    Yea Johnny Mo & Kaitlin - so happy for them. We got up at 6:00 to watch the game. Johnny Mo is so funny - he has to talk about having a brewskie after the game like it was just a club curling event. I saw that they even brought beers with them for an interview on TSN.
    Now on the men & women's curling as well as seeing what pants the Norwegian Curling team will be wearing. I hear that they have 14 different styles to wear this year at the Olympics as it may be the curtain call for the skip Thomas Ulsrud.

    Yup sounds like a plan. I always liked the hunting portion of the contest but this would just be the hunting portion but without the stress of the contest.

    You're trying too hard....
    or missing Disney too hard.


    You did! Impressed.
    She's from here
    (even the same part of town)
    and I didn't even get up for it.


    :laughing:

    Pretty classic Canadian. ::yes::

    You must follow curling?
    Or just in the Olympics?


    Gotta de-stress my readers. ;)

    Yep we are a curling watching family. I am the only one who hasn't curled.
    We watch all the events - Canadian championship and then the World's as well as all the rest of the curling events that are one.
