Battle of the Booze Results

Well Hello Again!

Time just seems to fly by these days. If we’re not careful, it will be next year before we know it. 

I hope everyone’s April is treating them well so far. I find myself taking it a bit easy these days (even though the blogging world is keeping me busy busy busy!)

A couple of weeks ago when I was waking from an afternoon nap, I was stretching in bed. As I stretched my left arm, I heard a Pop! Pop!  I didnt think much of it as joints and such seem to always make a noise when I wake up.  But I soon figured out that I lost my range of motion and experienced decrease in strength in that arm. 

I mentioned this to my Radiation Oncologist during a followup visit. Next thing I knew, I was being referred to the hospital to get an MRI of my shoulder done. I havent heard from medical staff yet, but a quick peep at my medical records indicates a small tear in my rotator cuff. The report made it seem insignificant, and I truly hope that is the case. I just need to be careful about how I use that arm now so that I don’t aggravate the tear. As it is, I can know in advance when cooler weather is approaching. 

But enough about me - let’s find out how this latest battle went!

    Well, my March 11th prediction about this BOTB installment was pretty accurate, if I do say so muh-dang-self.

    My prediction was:

    I can give you my ironclad BOTB guarantee that this will NOT be a shutout. It may actually be a pretty tight race. ... John Holton will vote for ARS. And I think the odds are in favor of Debbie doing the same. What little I know about Ed at this point, leads me to suspect that he too may be an ARS voter. Abbalouly NO CHANCE of a shutout here!

    According to your results posted above, it looks as if Ed did not cast a vote. But indeed John and Debbie voted for ARS, and a 2-vote margin of victory is indeed a "tight race".

    I only wish I could predict lottery numbers as well as I can predict BOTB contests!
