Burrrp!  Oh, uh, sorry.  I'm still recovering from the festival last weekend.  I think I ate too many pizza-on-a-stick.  I think next time I won't eat the sticks.

Yeah, the festival was last weekend.  And I only threw up twice on the new roller coaster!  :-[

No, no, Bob!  Didn't you read the topic title?  She's probably getting us confused with that old ABC television series where the plane crashed on that island.  See, it had a lot of plot twists based around time travel and alternate timelines, and she assumes that the the missing fall festival is actually part of a Dharma Initiative experiment.

Settle down you two!  Nothing that elaborate.  Yes, I know there are new people here, and I apologize to them.  But the things have been rather slow here this year, and we really didn't get much turn-out for the spring festival, so I figured we'd skip the contests this fall and hope things pick up and we can have a more active set of festivals next spring and fall.

Oops! Totally forgot the date for festival :( Tomatoes are so beautiful, now, too! Pleos are not happy with me. Perhaps they snuck out to, at least, hear the Fernback Band and see the  midnight movie. ;D

Sadly it is always the same people who enter the contests, and they seem to get fewer and fewer. They take a lot of time and effort to run and when hardly anyone participates then there is a lack of motivation to put in that effort.

I am still torn over whether putting together a Halloween contest this year is worth my time :(

I do understand and it can be very frustrating, The last contest I entered on here was another photo one but no follow up and I think there were only about six people that entered and it was a lot of effort on everyone's part, but when there are not a lot of new people entering or even feedback, it does get depressing. On another site I entered photos of my cats because that is the most important part of my life, they keep me going and I wanted to honor esp the ones that have translated, ( four of them) and even if none of them had won, jlust being able to show their photos off to others made me feel better. The fact four of them one spots on the calendar is just a bonus.

           So I will do the same for the Toamto festival, Even if there is no tomato festival this coming Spring, it is fun for ME and my PLEOS. Who knows, I could be dead by then, I am not getting any younger and seem to be accident prone. So why not celebrate while I can by showing off what I love, my Pleos and my cats. Big question I have not figured out yet, if I die, (hopefully not for a long time...) who will inherit the Redwoods Pleo Township..........? :pray: P:'( P0:) It is not like a pleo or two, but enough to fill up a van or U Haul and all their chargers, clothes and accessories, I know my hubby would just throw them out, he does not want to deal with any of my stuff after I am gone, he has already stated that fact to me many a time trying to make me feel guilty, leaving him all alone................
               Anyway, I will post some Tomato photos cause I can and it is fun, who knows, it may draw some interest in the next few months....................

Let's not plan on you dying anytime soon, OK?  But I know that situation all too well.  I have several friends in the same boat.  I have a business associate who is a long time pack rat.  And the Monday after his funeral, his wife has already said she'll have one of those semi-truck sized dumpster delivered to her driveway and have it filled by Tuesday.  A least I know that even if my wife wants to throw all my stuff away, the kids will gladly take most of it . . . :P

But you're right.  It's fun to post things here even if there's not a contest.  I'll go move & rename this topic for you. ;)
