Congrats, Cali.... Please send shipping info via PM.

 

And now, I am blowing out the flame burning on both ends of the candle. Nite.

Found "it", circled "it", but heaven only knows what "it" is!

 

Red - animal of sorts (cat, rabbit, etc)

Blue - ET or a "man in black"?

Game #9 closed. Mr Elf... would you do the honor of putting Cali's name in the hat and drawing it out?

Mrs Claus, I put Cali Craft's name in the hat and a white rabbit came out, I think I made a mistake with the hats.

 

Congrats Cali Craft, you are the lucky winner.

You're making it too easy now Ruthie...

 

Potties & Trainer Seats - Dora Potty Chair for sale in United States (ID:81871849)

 

(you'd think the lack of sleep due to being at Casualty last night from 00h30 to 01h30 would have kept me asleep and in bed... but we have to go spend the day in the airconditioned shop whilst the rest of Oudtshoorn cooks in the 37-40 degree heat - been this temp for most of the past week with no signs of the temp dropping soon!)

Cali.... Ahhh, method to my 'crazies'. The more the merrier and tho't if I gave a simple one, there would be more names in Mr. Elf's hat (and less white rabbits).

 

Horrific weather here and trees are uprooting and topplin' or snapping in half, taking down power lines. Have a couple of huge trees I am 'keeping an eye one' (one of the downfalls of living in the 'boonies' with timber clean up to just short of the back door...they fall, 'good-bye' house). IF I do not get a game up and running later, it will be because I have no service; electric and / or internet. Our internet service can be interrupted even if there are 'issues' a half a dozen States away (the head bone connected to the neck bone, the neck bone connected to the...)

 

I will trust Mr. Elf to 'do his thing' with respect to names in hat and drawing winner.

Yay! It makes me happy when you pull BALLS out your hat (yes, minds OUT the gutter)!

 

Thank you kindly - am having such a hectic time at the moment what with tourist season upon us - so nice to grab a few minutes on the forum from time to time. And even nicer to be pulled out a hat!

Too hot to play anymore... brain is melting...

 

Yesterday in the shade, the temp rose to 41.8 degrees, and last night around 23h00 it was still 31! In town, the outside temp recorded in the sun reached 58 degrees!!!

 

This morning it was 27 degrees by 7am, and 34 degrees by 8.30am when we left for the shop.

 

Locked all our animals in the house with the fans running full blast. Could not get my aircon installed before the holidays, so will have to carry on like this until early January. My mom took our dog to her house yesterday (they have aircon in every room) and she was spoiled by "granny" for the day!

Thanks Elf Wayne and tons of thanks, Ruthie. I was actually just trying to inspire others when I posted early this morning. I am sure someone could have come up with another word or two??! Perhaps, like Cali, everyone is hot and bothered right now? The temperature in Grahamstown has hovered around 40 deg C today and has been more than humid. I have drunk litres and litres of water and am ready to pop!

Lily... cold here. Winds stopped, thank goodness. Lots of limbs down, but those can wait until Spring. Like a bear, I 'hunker down' for the winter. No water, but I am positively 'floating' from all the double-doubles; hot, not on the rocks... too cold.

 

YSL... good start. Keep looking.
