Oops! (Responsorial)

Many of you have found your way to today’s Bulletin Board, despite the SNAFU in today’s email — but we have reasons to believe that others have not located it.

How that “Oops!” happened: We hit PUBLISH instead of SCHEDULE last evening, then immediately — but too late — changed it to SCHEDULE, thinking that you would receive a second, clickable email this morning. But no.

Should we make that mistake again, please know that you can always find every Bulletin Board at BBonward.com.

Here is today’s: https://bbonward.com/2016/12/02/is-this-the-best-bluegrass-clog-dancing-video-ever-made-gotta-be-a-contender/

Onward!

Country mouse, city mouse: “How different can two siblings raised in the same family turn out?”

There & There

KH of White Bear Lake writes: “Subject: Small Town, Big Town.

“How different can two siblings raised in the same family turn out?

Is it true that no country would put a black stripe at the top of its flag? Nein! Das ist nicht wahr!

Unclear on the concept
Leading to: Hmmmmmmmm (responsorial)

The November 25 Bulletin Board opened with a story from IGHGrampa: “In a shop at the Mall of America, I noticed some state-shape decorations on the wall above the display shelves.

“They had North Dakota backwards. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota — they were all the right way. But they had North Dakota up with the eastern border on the west.
