It all started last February on Facebook. Nancy suggested to me that ‘My Odd family’ host an Academy Awards pool. This was an exciting idea since I had always wanted to be a bookie. It was a dream of mine. So I agree that Odd would host the pool, and my mom hoped she would not have to bring Cole to visit me in the pokey.
The pool was set up, the money was collected (and I did not have to send Bubba out to break a single knee cap), the results were tabulated, and Bob Early was announced the winner.
The following day, Nancy wondered if “we” were really setting the best example for my impressionable 14 year old. Gotta love Nancy. I told her not to worry as he was not interested in being a bookie since he was in the process of forming an assassin business with his grandmother. My family is odder than your family — trust me.
In any case, I am putting my Bookie hat back on and Odd will once again host an Academy Awards Pool.
Yous can donate ya ten bucks by clicking on that PayPal button below, or if you’d rather send a check or cash, just send an e-mail to my girl at Katybeth@myoddfamily.com and she will set yas up with a mailing address.
That’s Bubba, he works in the deadbeat department, so we ain’t worried about collecting. We know youses gonna pay sooner or later.
Ok now, peeps, listen up. This is important, and I ain’t no kindergarten teacher, so I don’t want to be repeaten myself. First, because I like yas, I’m gonna give yas an inside tip. Before yas hit the link below, read the instructions. Those instructions could turn you into a winner instead of a whiner. Bubba over there, he don’t like whiners much. After you read those instructions, ya hit that link and follow them. If sometin don’t work for ya, come back and we will have a sit down and work it out. Yas don’t look stupid, so it shouldn’t be too hard.

Woah, this looks very official. Just one question in case I’ve overlooked it , missed it etc. But where is the list of candidates and categories we’re voting for? Or is that in another link that I’ve missed? (is it in runyourpool.com?)
Exactly. The list is on on runypool.com. You are not committed to your “guesses” until the awards close–they can be changed as many times as you want to change them.
Let me know if you run into any glitches. If it ain’t easy we will send Bubba over.

What is your address for paypal? When I hit the donate button it doesn’t take me right to it.
Sorry about that! I can not seem to get it to work they way it should GRRRR.
This was so easy and so much fun thank you! I love the black and white photo’s too!
Glad to know it was easy. It’s no fun to be thwarted by something that is suppose to be fun. Thanks–the picture of Cole makes me smile…he looks do darn tough.
