Aloha to Flashback Friendship Friday!

Unfortunately I have no clue where this is at or what year, but I'm going to take a wild guess that it's in Atlantic City, New Jersey where my Mom & Dad got married.  So, the year would've been 1943 & Dad was in the Army then too, and those are his Army buddies.  Dad is the handsome devil on the right.  hehehe

Same day 1943 - Dad has his arms out!  What a ham!  Typical jock! LOL


Question Of The Week:  

International Day Of The Girl – A New Holiday

Come see!

"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday a day of rest. So we're doin' the same. On Fridays we're taking it easy on posting. Therefore, our hostess is asking a simple question for you to answer; nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d  like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at the very friendly place of Islandlife808.com. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends and find new followers! 

Question this week:  This week I'm going to do a little something different.  Here's my question.  Did anyone win a Dale & Thomas Popcorn giveaway?  

Well, I did.  It doesn't matter from who, but it was one of those where three or four blogs were involved with the give-away... well, two that I know for sure (I think there were more).  Anyway, I was contacted that I was one of four people that won around Father's Day this past June.  Time went on & I never got it.  I asked the girl where I entered at & she said she wasn't the main one & yada yada yada you know the rest.  I go to the main one & I let her know... nothing! I don't believe I heard back from her (if I did my memory fails me).  Anyway, I decided to contact them myself this time just the other day (after 6 or 8 e-mails later).  I got a reply today that I'd like to share with you all and the 3 other winners:  


Dear Marie,

Thank you for contacting Dale and Thomas Popcorn.

I apologize for the breakdown in communication.  As of June 30 Dale and Thomas decided to temporarily close the business and focus on the phenomenal growth of the wholesale business, Popcorn Indiana.

I handle all incoming emails and would have fulfilled any request that would have come from a Blogger.  This is the first time I am learning of this situation. 

As we no longer have Dale and Thomas Product,  I have nothing to send.

Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions you may have 1-800-767-4444.
Thank you,

Customer Service

So if you entered one of these and you won.... SORRY YOU ARE S.O.L. JUST LIKE ME!  DANG, THAT SUCKS THE BIG ONE!  PERSONALLY I THINK THEY SHOULD'VE CAME UP WITH SOMETHING GIFT CERTIFICATE OR SOMETHING THAT THEY OWED IN COMPENSATION!  THAT NAME IS CERTAINLY SCRATCHED FROM MY SHOPPING LIST - FOR ANYTHING!!!  So, I guess you can say WINNERS LOSE!  I'm sorry!  I guess I'm just one that speaks her mind!   Thank you indeed!  THANKS FOR NOTHING!


Don't forget to check out my give-aways!  May I add and you can take it to the bank that any of my Give-Aways if you win and you do not get the product please let me know when you get and especially when you don't!!!  I personally will contact the company until you do get your just rewards for your time!
Also, check to see if you're following me if not and you do let me know I return every follow.  Any questions let me know.  Have a great weekend my friends.

Hi Dolly,
I know how you must treasure those pictures of your father and his buddies. He clearly was having a lot of fun on those occasions. Have yourself a great weekend.

I always adore your pictures from way back - your dad was a handsome dude! :)

That really sucks about that giveaway - I don't enter very many giveaways which means I rarely win any...sort of like never winning the lottery since I don't buy tickets! :) But when I do host a giveaway I like to follow up and make sure my winners get their product - if they don't, you know I'd be all up in the company's business to find out why - and get them something comparable. Only seems fair!

Wow, they really mishandled that giveaway--the company should have offered you and the other winners an apology and a gift certificate, at the very least. Poor customer service.

Very cool pictures!

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Following you here

Those are definitely treasured photos.

And that company could have come up with the compensation or something close. They choose not to.

So sorry about the winloss. I am always hoping sponsors will get on the ball and come through.

The pictures are GREAT! Looks like your dad had a lot of fun with his friends.

As for the popcorn, boooo :(

I've won and never rec'vd the prizes (even after follow up). In fact, I have two and half like that now (one was two prizes, and half came but the other half never did). Both were won months ago, so...

:)

I'm fairly new at the giveaways, but I sure would hope the reader would let me know if they didn't receive a prize. Sorry about your popcorn.

Happy weekend, and thanks for the cool photo share.

I haven't received a few things in the past that I've won from various places or another, and yes, I did contact the bloggers in 'charge' and they said they'd look into it but I still never got something.

I just look at it like this-I didn't pay anything so it's not that big of a deal if it doesn't show up.

It's a totally sucky situation you got stuck in though :(
