It’s Monday. The Monday after Thanksgiving. We’re tired. We’re stuffed. We’re out of sorts. Geritol won’t help. So, how about a contest to help with the post-holiday re-entry blues?
What is this contraption?
RULES: In 2 words, tell me what this contraption is. Wednesday morning, I will put the correct entries in a pot, and let Termite pick the winner. (And if you are an outdoorsy type, hold your guess until others less fortunate(!) take their guesses, please.)
PRIZE: Here’s what I’m going to do, and I hope I’m the first blogger to ever do this. The winner will pick a photo that you would like printed in 5×7 or 8×10, and I will upload a high-resolution image to the store of your choice: Walgreen’s, WalMart, whichever one is your favorite; and if there is a feature that will allow me to pay for it online, I will do so. If not, well I hope you think it’s worth the price of printing just to have a BW original!!! (yea, I’m laughing too!)
Okay, let’s see those guesses and no cheating!!! Just look at the photo and take a WILD GUESS!!!!
Remember, in 2 WORDS, tell us what this thing is.
TUESDAY NIGHT – CONTEST OVER
Y’all are so smart and so funny and creative!!! But to everyone down the bayou, this is known as a “duck plucker”. So, those of you who said that will be entered in the drawing.
When Jane guessed “finger plucker”, I had to do a google search for that, and I have no idea on earth why they would call a duck plucker a finger plucker, but sure enough, in other parts of the country, that is exactly what it is called. And as I looked a little further, others call it a “feather plucker”. So, all of you who said “duck, finger or feather plucker” will be entered into the drawing.
I CUT PAPER INTO STRIPS, WROTE A NAME ON EACH STRIP, PUT THEM IN A BOWL, WOKE TERMITE UP AND ASKED HIM TO PICK ONE, AND THE WINNER IS REBEL. CONGRATULATIONS! PLEASE EMAIL ME SO WE CAN TALK ABOUT YOUR PHOTO CHOICE.
Meanwhile, I would like to sweeten the pot, thanks to Choupiquer’s bright idea.
The first person who correctly names the duck in this photo will also receive a photo print.
Ready, set GO! Guess the duck!
