THANKS, ALL OF YOU – YAY, YIPPEE AND CHOLERABLY TUFT INDEED!


 

Snoopy Happy Dance 

When the going gets too tough
One’s inclined to moan, ‘Enough’,
And with Kate eleventh spot
Yesterday, depressed I got;
Then decided, ‘One more shot
At vote-catching stuff.’ 

Aiming at the USA
Seemed the most productive way,
Nancy also on the case
Brought Kate back into the race;
Andra added stacks of pace –
Kate was there to stay! 

Back to top ten was a thrill,
But went further up the hill;
Up to eighth a rise then saw,
But it kept on going more,
SECOND was the final score –
Rallied with a will!

Congratulations Kate!

Now I am off to the beach with grandkidlets and Pooch Pack – catch you later!

    I think that brewery is in order, Col xx And perhaps we should invite all the people who created that magnificant surge of votes last night.

      That surge of votes was like watching a wave crest . . . before splashing down. Such a nail-biter of a day. With a happy ending. Yay!

      And, Col, I love what you brought to the mix . . . a poem topped by a happy dance pix. 😀

      It was quite spectacular, wasn’t it? Fascinating to know what part of the effort suddenly moved the engine room signal to the ‘full speed ahead’ position! The basis of a paper on successful online marketing!

      Yes, hard to pick up on this out of the blue! Kateshrewsday above entered the vote stage to determine the top ten in a Penguin ‘Wayfarer’ contest – and has come second! Now the author who will choose the winner has an alphabetical list, but I’m sure he knows how the votes went.
