A poet I ain't
but don't say cain't
Sophisticates are above
that which I love--
The entry
that opens the door
to the floor
that I'll
own up there in Tahoe.
My voice echoing Hello
O, O,
to the villagers below.


Bad Poetry
Love making a fool of myself.
Anonymously of course.

YOUR Turn......

Tahoe is a place of have and have nots
You eat caviar or you eat tater tots
Get a job for the winter at one of the resorts
You can ski for free so you're not outta sorts
Wanna launch a boat it'll cost a pretty penny
Need that TUP sticker before you get ready
Don't get me wrong it's a beautiful place
And I know you're thinkin I'm gettin in your face
But if you couldn't afford to live there before
Just cause a contest opens the door
Don't mean you live there forevermore.

Yeah it's me chanceinhell, Member since Jan 03. I had to reregister because the overlords wouldn't let me in.
That's how I roll.

There was a dreamhome in the forest
With delights and trinkets abound
Linda and Jack so matter a fact
Filled the house full of beauty astound
The kitchen is full with all you will need
To welcome and dine your guests with ease
They will welcome me home ready to roam
And say nursejudy here are your keys

I'm not in a creative mood just now but here goes...


The lake is pristine
because authorities keep it clean.
It's a reservoir I hear
from someone dear.
If I've gotta drink it.
I'm glad they clean it
pulling boats on shore
to do the nasty chore
Too bad oil rig owners
are not cornered
stopping oil on shore
sand and pelican.

There was a message board nurse
Whose dreams are better not worse
She just wished for the house
So happy was her spouse
The lending tree cash in her purse

You like limerick's?

Art removal I'm scheming
Imploring good luck
Entering takes pluck
My log on reason
It's Dream Home Season

My DH did not want to be left out, so here is his;

My wife has a habit,
Not smoking or drinking.
She's no shopaholic,
If that's what you're thinking.

She says it's no habit,
And I tend to agree.
It's more a condition,
Called HGTV.

You see, though quite busy,
She'll always find time,
To register us,
For the Dream home online.

And there's only one cure,
So far as I know.
It's the key to a house,
Somewhere near Lake Tahoe.

Mr. nursejudy is prettygood Smile

There once was a girl
who took a whirl
after putting her card
into the post office box.

But dang, if she didn't bump
into the creep who stared at
her r u mp,
So instead of celebrating
a win with certainty
She spent time calibrating
how to look matronly.

To Tahoe I go,
Never mind the snow!
I don’t care for skiing,
I don’t need the yacht.
Don’t wanna golf,
I have a better thought.
I’ll sit by the fire
And watch my new flattie.
Survey my domain-
This stuff is not tacky.
My shiny yellow barstools!
Walls full of windows!
Genuine hardwoods, I'll vouch.
My Ethan Allen pillows,
My lovely orange couch!
I’ll blend with my Vitamix
And Eat Tyson Chicken strips.
Cruise in my Denali,
Admire my new paver bricks.
I WON’T be quiet as a mouse.
CUZ I AM SILLY FOR THIS HOUSE!


~~~~Dream On!!!!~~~~

Cruise up 80 or cruise up 50
Try 89 if you're feeling iffy
Roads are clear cause despite the hype
Ain't no snow in Tahoe as I type
The Sierra is dry this year so far
And you can cruise in in a regular car
No chainin up to make you tardy.
Would have been a dream for the Donner party.

Cruising Rocky Mountain Park
on a bus is a lark
when the driver
isn't in a rush.

Is it so in Lake Tahoe
Looking out the window
while going up the road
tossing cookies
and thinking "Oh Woe"

I'll take that house
and hide away all winter
Ignoring the cold and the road
I might even ski but I'll
avoid the trees cause I
don't want a splinter.

Cute Leafy,

Here is my new entry:

My Poem spoke of Keys
The other of cash
What's left is the car
The prize what a stash

The dream of so many
A house and a car
This dream home in Tahoe
Is the best treat so far

So remember to smile
Be happy and Bliss
As the team in their ambush
Award nursejudy her wish

Smile

Cause if you win you might kiss

There was a Dream House of the west...
Whose rustic modern was best.
The gorgeous design
Told me that it's mine.
Please come and be our guests. Smile

I agree. Nice poem Trish.

Judy, I like dreaming too.
But
Most the fun is cutting up.
If I won I think I'd faint.
But
I won't say ain't.
But
I'll just be Trish's guest.
Until I become a pest.
Gee, there are lots of ifs and buts
Quick shut the door.
before I go nuts
chasing buts.

I did my chore
by entering once more.
It's really an opportunity
If chosen I'll laugh or
tears might flow with impunity
That's the loser's lament
Not for long.
Next year comes by
and says Hi.

It's high in Denver
for the playoff
Think I'll watch Peyton
He's gone from low to high
Louisiana to the Mile High metropolis.
On the way Rocky Top to Indianapolis.

Maybe one of us will follow
a similar path if we live South
Sea level to tree line.
In Tahoe.
Go Bronco!

Hi Nurse Judy and JSB,

Gosh I go away, come back and look at those threads about other stations....and go cross eyed like a cricket in a marijuana patch.
Juveniles most likely.

I cant get the dumb entry form to work today. So, I give up - On Front Door and on HGTV. The 'Thanks for entering page' doesn't pop up. Hope it didn't do multiple entries after I clicked submit more than once. Sheesh! Roll eyes.

Show me the money. That's what I'd say
Show me the money amd I'll walk away
Been entering this contest since Jackson Hole
That's since 1997 truth be told
Odds against winning keep getting big
But I don't give a flying fig
I made great friends I've gone on tours
I really don't think I could ask for more.
