Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

First...Hooray it's no longer Monday!

Second...still all warm and pretty here- No Christmas snow. :(

Yet.

In case you've all not quite figured it out yet, posting will be light until after Christmas, and totally unrelated to politics at that. Who can think about today's political scene and keep their dinner down, much less enjoy the holiday? Oo

Speaking of losers, today I bring you the exact opposite- Winners!

The winners of the Christmas contest are Insolublog and Peakah (whose entry is in the comments here) , and not just because these were the only two entries (ok, that too) but also because their efforts totally rock. Bee-u-tee-ful! Be sure to check them out.

UPDATE I- Yay! I missed someone. Not yay I missed them but yay we have another winner. A Christmas memory from Wyatt Earp (that sentimental fool). Bring tissues. *sniff*

UPDATE II- Stew Magoo of The Right Place brings us "Twas The Night Before Christmas". A must read!

The second image, a digital Christmas painting, is finally finished. Preview here. First image here. The third image isn't finished so I'll just save it for a Christmas day post (if done by then).

Anywho, I guess maybe the busy week before Christmas isn't the best time to have a contest, huh? In any case, heartfelt thanks go out to both of you (yes, poetry makes me that happy *g*). Email at pj_maximum@yahoo.com with shipping information to collect prints and stuff (yeah, stuff is code for stalking), or hq images via email, your choice. :)

Hope everyone is getting in the mood for Christmas cheer (or booze), with less than a week to go now, the countdown begins...

Thanks, Lin. :)

Christmas shopping all done yet?

fmragtops said...

Dang it! I missed the freakin' deadline, huh. Maybe that's why bill collectors don't like me. Anyhoo, sorry, Uber.

Uber said...

S'ok FM...I understand. I didn't even have time to remind and harass everyone all week. ;)

Wyatt Earp said...

The prints are a home run, Uber!

fmragtops said...

Dang it! I was really hoping to add a new stalker to the stalkroll ;)

nice, veddy, veddy nice.

Insolublog said...

Your newest image reminds me of last year's story. I might have to resurrect it with a picture.

RT said...

I'll have a recipe for you posted tomorrow night. Enjoy...it is yummy and will melt in your mouth...really.

Uber said...

Thanks Earpy! I sent your print, let me know what the quality is like, k?

FM- Is there really a stalkroll? If so, I may need to take a look at it...for scientifical purposes, of course. *g*

Thank you veddy much Spacemonkey! :)

Insolu- Sounds great, I love that one. And you know, it actually came to mind after I finished the painting. Maybe it was hidden in my subconscious...

RT- Yay! Thanks. It's making me hungry already and I don't even know what it is. lol

RT said...

It is my great grandmother's Scottish shortbread recipe...a for real recipe from Scotland passed down to her.

However, because I've been meme'd by Wyatt and because I am totally thrashed...the recipe will be available tomorrow night at some point. :)

RT said...

I posted the recipe. :) Enjoy.

Captain Den said...

Hi, Uber! Wyatt sent me, and . . . you've been tagged. Sorry.

Uber said...

Thanks so much RT, I'll be back later after festivities to copy and paste. Sounds yummy! I'm honored, really, I'll even be sure to note credit on the recipe card. (Of course 30 or 40 years from now when grand daughters ask who RT is, it'll likely throw me into an hour long story about how we used to type to blog instead of using mental telepathy..lol).

Captain Den- Thanks for the tag and the visit, I'll play catch up soon as I'm able! :)

RT said...

Just enjoy the holiday!!!!

Phat said...

I've been trying to leave a comment for weeks. This might be the first one that makes it.

Dr. Phat Tony said...

It published the comment but I don't know who Phat is. I will now try with a different account and sign in.

Dr. Phat Tony said...

hmm...o.k. it works now. Merry Christmas Uber.

Uber said...

Doc- Not sure what's up with that but let's just blame beta blogger since it has screwed everything else up around here. Thanks for trying (again, and again). Hope you guys had a terrific Christmas! :)
