Hotdish Hoedown 2005

Jell-O contest features games, archeology, fish, politics and the mysterious contents of a frying pan

fishbowl, trophy

Hi Karen,

Jacqueline and I had a great time at
the Hoedown and making the jell-o
thing. The trophy is proudly displayed
in my front window (at least for now).

Have a good week and again, thanks
for the invite.

Joe and Nelson created Jell-O pizza, a most-revolutionary product
that won a prize, much to the dismay of Joe's sister, Emma.
This pizza of the future should interest General Foods,
parent company of Jell-O.
Inspector Gadget visits the Hoedown. Hey, didn't he trick-or-treat at the hostess' house on Halloween. Go-Go Gadget -- and Sam, the creator, who took home the trophy he desired. Who says dreams can't come true?

Apologies to Laura, the hostess must have misread the log sheet, mistaking a "L" for yet another "J" in front of "Good."

Laura missed her share of public acclaim for her runner-up win in
the best special
effects category.
Sorry, Laura.

Human error or electoral fraud and malfeasance? Only the election judges know for sure.
