    Hope this is ok Pops, JS,

    Just thought it could be a bit of fun, no monies involved, just comment if you would like to be included in the sweepstake, and i’ll include your name in a sweepstake generator

    Winner takes nothing but bragging rights.

    I’ll post the results of the generator around this time tomorrow, so if you want to place a bet on the horse that was chosen for you, you have time to do so.

    Who’s in? 39 places left!

    Well lack of interest means the chances are none of us will win, but i’ll still run the generator in a couple of hours time and see which horses we get.

    Hi Trev

    I reckon if you had suggested that there maybe some chance of a weather girl photo for the winner, then you may have had more interest in this!! lol

    Here we go then, the 6 entries so decided to give us 6 horses each to fill the field a bit… what’s the betting that still one of the horses we haven’t picked wins it…. Good luck





    Oh i did consider adding over regulars names in the hat anyhow, but not knowing how they feel about the national and/or horse racing i chose not to.

    I haven’t even looked at the betting to see who has the favourite yet!


    #48481 Reply

    Trev I choose my friends carefully and I like the cut of your jib, is the race tomorrow? I’ve a feeling I’ve won.

    #48484 Reply

    I’m very honored to be your friend Brydo, don’t have many at all. Always been a bit of a loner, easier that way.

    Yeah tomorrow at 5.15pm, the wife doesn’t like it so i’ll be watching on my chromebook – haven’t placed a bet, but by doing this it adds an interest.

    #48485 Reply

    How about that lightbodyae55, 2 of the horses picked for you have the word red in lol

    A man is sitting at the bar in his local tavern, furiously swallowing shots of whiskey. One of his friends happens to come into the bar and sees him.

    “Lou,” says the shocked friend, “what are you doing? I’ve known you for over fifteen years, and I’ve never seen you take a drink before. What’s going on?”

    Without even taking his eyes off his newly filled shot glass, the man replies, “My wife just ran off with my best friend.”

    He then throws back another shot of whisky in one gulp.

    “But,” says the other man, “I’m your best friend!”

    The man turns to his friend, looks at him through bloodshot eyes, smiles, and then slurs,

    “Not anymore! … He is!”

    You’ve been reading too much Daily Fail Brydo, as that’s the sort of thing they would report! lol

    Hi Trev

    Sorry its a late reply, a 60 mile journey yesterday to Aberdeen Hospital for an MRI scan on my knee all of 15 minutes in the scanner then 60 miles drive home, 1n hour and a half each way.

    So I guess that Red Rum did not win this year!!.

    I am glad I do not waste my money on these gambling ideas, I can now go and start another home wine kit  and have six bottles of home made wine, just what the DR ordered!!



    #48597 Reply

    Hi lightbodyae55,

    Hope you don’t have to travel all that way again just to find out the results?

    Not a fan of the homebrew myself, actually not a fan of alcohol with all the meds i have to take…. lemon & lime, and Orange & Mandarin flavoured waters are my tipples of choice… in fact it’s the only thing i do drink.

    That’s the good thing with this sweepstake, it allows you to take an interest, but at no cost.

    Same time next year?

    Wish you the best for your results, and the treatment is quick and effective.

    Hi Trev

    At least I only have to go 15 miles to Elgin hospital to see the specialist that wanted the scan, so not to far to go.

    I don’t drink too much of the homebrew, i did make 18 bottles for Christmas last year, and gave 3 bottles away as presents, and I still have 12 left.

    As long as Red Rum is in the National next year you can count me in!! lol
