Susie, I just do a google search for "animated christmas tree" when looking for trees. They have a great image search, too, if you're looking for specific images.

Who ended up with the candy cane shot glasses? Or are they still in the box?

Good morning,

I wanted to post before I went to bed, If I am repeating myself, I apologize, this is my first RR sooooo with that said... I know we post when we recieve and when we send it out, but do we send out with delivery confirmation/priority mail, and post it here?

Since I was lazy and didn't collect any seeds, I will put in a some books of postage stamps so whoever needs to use them please do so, and extra seed bags. I'm sure there will be room for those.

OFF to bed I go, I work crazy hours, but I'm going to love them during the growing season.

Thanks to everyone!

LIFE IS GOOD,

Susie-
The package is recorded as delivered at my dinky PO at 11am today. We usually get our mail later in the afternoon, so hopefully it got there before they sorted the mail for delivery today. I'll know when I get home from work.
Assume it's in my hands. If it's there when I get home, it'll be back in flight tomorrow. If not, it'll probably show up on Fri, and I'll get it out Sat. Will post back here when it's on its way!

Oh yeah, question...are there instructions in the pkg? There's nothing 'weird' or 'special' that I need to know about this Robin, is there?

Ok, Here I am. I forgot that if I use Click-n-Ship that I can save the cost of the DC, so I did that instead.
Scratch the DC that I gave you up there. Here's the one I just got with my online label:

420 28734 9101 0385 5574 9904 9355 28

That'll be taken to the PO at 10, so don't go looking for it before then.
Thanks, and sorry for the little hiccup.

mmqchdygg(Z5NH)

Ok, that was just weird...(no, I don't normally clutter up boards like this)

Anyway, the number I gave you is evidently wrong. That was the number of the package, not the DC...

Third time lucky, right? Ok, for real this time...this is the DC# on MY portion of the online label record:

0103 8555 7499 0493 5528 Really.

And for what it's worth, Girl-Clerk at the Concord PO decided that "we don't scan those" and just took the package to the bin. (Since when? Every time I bring stuff in with postage already on it, the guy types it all in, checks it, and gives me a "0.00" receipt with all the DC#s and destination Zips...

Whatever. So if the number is in the system, great. If it's not, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Really.

Ok, so evidently the very first post that I made LAST night re: actually receiving the Robin and its status did not get 'submitted' to the board, and now you're all confused, dazed & bewildered at this muttering that's going on here at the bottom of the thread. Was that the goal? No? Ok, then, here's a recap:

I got the Robin.
WOW!
Sort, sort, replace, replace...
22 out, 29 back in
Retape, label, stick DC on it.
Oops, I can save a little by using online postage. Bag the original DC...use this one...no don't use this one, use this one...yes, use this one:
0103 8555 7499 0493 5528
Package is given to clerk at PO who doesn't scan it, but takes it directly to a 'bin.'

Tag! Shirley, you're it!

hey micke-
Those ads are run on an Active-X plug in thing.

To get rid of the ads: If using IE:
Tools, Options, Programs, Manage Add-ons...
when the list comes up, find the one for Shockwave macromedia, and it'll likely say "enabled." Highlight it, and in the gray part of the box, click the 'disable' button.

Wah-lah...ads gone.
However, any other sites that use shockwave (like forums with a live-chat feature (not aol) may not work until you allow the Active-X control again.

HTH!

I have a pretty good pop up blocker, for some reason though there is this one pop up, that instead of disapearing when I click on the x it takes me to the site! and it follows me! when I scroll down it scrolls with me, the only way to get rid of it is to go to another page. All good though:)
(waiting patiently for the seed box..... or not:)
so good to be back on line!

Carol==== (hope you see this before driving down to the P.O) The post office may be closed Monday due to the fact that it is Presidents Day. I had a mail carrier that would pull the same stunt, actually said mail carrier liked to keep mail for himself, important mail! Must of gotten a kick out of it or something. Maybe he didn't want to leave it out because he was afraid something would happen to it maybe? If he is new maybe he doesn't quite understand how this works yet, maybe you need to have a face to face with him and tell him if he don't straighten up, he is going to have around 30 gals surrounding him to tell him how this works? *grin*
ups is not much better, my neighbor goes out of town alot as he is a carpet layer for a motel chain, he has a huge note on his front door explaining that if he is not home they need to take the packages next door to me. He was expecting a fax machine from HP, as his old one was still on warrenty and when we had that bad ice storm it went out, well he had 10 days to recieve the new one and return the old one. I was suppose to call his son as soon as it got here so he could switch them out and return the old one for his dad. They didn't deliver it to me, instead they took it up the road to the first house (which thank goodness it was the managers house) and left it there. Morons! took him alot of phone calls to track it down, if he didn't get the old one back to them, they were going to charge him for the new one! So none of the package deliverers are infallable:)

Went to po today and gave them a printed copy of the tracking info they brought me out a pkg from another trade, no notice left for that one either. it didn't have a confirmation # so if it hadn't been for this robin I may have never gotten that one, I sent her back to get the robin, nice selection, I will mail it tomorrow to dizzy. The other box was to heavy to carry walking, I opened it to see if anything could come out to make it lighter, I gave it back to the po worker who noticed the tape was disturbed she asked if I opened it then wrote on it that I had she said so that I didn't blame the po for opening it, a bit sarcastic I think. a batch or morons of course if I make them mad I may never see any of my mail. sorry for the delay. don't anyone send me a gun I can't trust myself. sue it will travel tomorrow. hugs carol

Carol, don't let those bas*ards get you down!! I don't know quite how it happened, but I have a really nice mail carrier & she follows the procedures for scanning, etc. How the heck did they let her out with the public??? There is a PO branch office here I will NOT go to though - they tend to be rude & pissy, so I just drive another mile to the main office.

Wow if kazillion is a number, there are a kazillion seeds in there! I took out 10 and put in 25 -- I don't think I can fit all this back in a big envelope so I switched it to a box. It will be on it's way to Michelle today. I'm using one of the delivery confirmations in the box 03060320000387973715 -- I'll try to get it mailed on my lunch hour. Thanks again.

ARGHHHHH! It still says it is in Arizona! Those silly postal workers. What they have it on hold? Maybe they think it is a suspicious package or something. Watch out for the box that says seeds on it, you never know what it could be. Good grief. Actually it has to be my post office, they can be such imbeciles.
here's hoping it arrives sometime this year.
Okay I know I am impatient. I took a deep breath and I feel better now:)

Hi ladies

The box arrived yesterday. I haven't had the time to get thru it yet. Have had a house full of kids all weekend.
I will try and get it back out Tuesday. Monday is going to be a full day for me. I have doctors appointments most of the day in a different town than I live in.
I will post an update Tuesday.

Thanks,

Susie,
Thanks for including me! I really enjoyed the robin!
I ended up taking some lettuce, a couple of herbs (chives), a couple packages of tomatoes, plus a few flower packs. I replaced everything I took (and added a few extra packs).
I'll mail out the robin in the morning, and post a delivery confirmation number.

Subject: OBF SEED ROBIN

Tina
Just wanted to give you the chance to send MY 113 pks of seed you took out of the robin back to me within the next week or I will post what you have done .

Rule Of thumb replace what you take . I have the list as to what you took & If I have to
I will do the list in the post to let other know how dishonest you was .
Its your choice do the right thing or it will be posted .
I Knew from the 1st one that went around you took more then you said & did not put back in but had no proof. this time I do .
when you send everything back to me & I check it off the list & it is all there all will be find No more said about this . I want the all the veggies , trees , sages , bird of paradise, snowball bush, the list goes on .
if you try to pass off other then what is on this , it will be posted.
so I want them in the mail No later then MONDAY Mar 26th,
priority conf# sent to me .
if I do not hear from you with this information by Monday 5pm my time .
there will be a list of all the seeds that you took out of the robin that others in our group have missed out on .
we will see who will ever want to trade with you again .
I will also post it in the rating forum . this was so unfair to the others in the group & once they compare the list
they will see how dishonest you was in our group.
Tina there is no love loss in this & you want to spread things about me this is your way but no one can say I was ever as dishonest as you .
if I don't hear back from you with the conf# by Monday , trust me it will be posted .
your threat Don't work on me ,
Susie

Now, First off, I don't have a clue as to the " threats" you are referring to. You can explain that.

As far as the seeds go, Micke was right before me, and Debbya was right after me, so I am sure they can attest to what was in the box when they had it.

I posted exactly what I took out, and I REPLACED with other seed packs.

If you go look in the seed trading forums, you'll see that I have been trying to get rid of most of my seeds for the past two months or more. Why would I want to take out 113 more packets of seeds? Susie, there wasn't anything out of the ordinary that no-one else doesn't have in that box.

Now, if you would please quit e-mailing me with threats of things you KNOW are dishonest, I would appreciate it.
I can't help that Elizabeths box is stuck out there somewhere. The DC# shows I sent it. Thats what this is REALLY about isn't it? You've already kicked me out of OBF because of it. Now just let it be.

It is really a shame that you think this is about your
late feb box , so not true ..

what this is about is Honesty, my list of 323pks to you showed a shortage from you to debby who counted 210 pks,
Do the MATH.

I would not have cared that you take 20-30 pks & put in 10 of anything else but that was not done .

its not the fact You took the seeds from me or my robin I started If you was going to use them . But in truth you trade them off also .

trust in the group was why we started this group & you have not realy been that honest .
I just want to say at this point if I get booted for this being brought up on the forum "BY TINA".
This Is ok . you all will do fine . as long as you
open your eye's to some trader 's . check out their rating system's & forum .

anyway Tina you have to live with the fact of what you done ,I have the fact or proof . & the fact I have nothing
to be sorry about .

like I said if I get booted at lease I have honesty on my side :)))

This really puts me in a very difficult spot. Why? Because I didn't take those seeds, but I don't think Micke or Deb took them either.
You check my list and my posts, and you show me where I traded off those seeds Sue. The only seeds I sent out to anyone from what was in your box was some clover seeds to diene in my St. Patricks day RR. If you want the other seeds I took out (the ones I even posted above)You can have them back. If that is what it will take for you to finally leave me alone I will go send them back to right now!

I ONLY TOOK OUT WHAT I POSTED ABOVE!!!!!!!!

Hi Kiddos
Well I put in 41 packs of seed however some were duplicates like several packs of lettuce and melon and moonflower vine seed, most from my garden and some trades. I took out 10 + some of Susie's echinops. The seeds I got like coreopsis I was happy to get and should do well here. I think the diversity is pretty good and worth the price of the robin, thanks for hostessing Susie!

The robin went out Friday afternoon to Theresa, confirmation number 0305 1720 0000 8244 6624

Ladies! I'm very sorry for not posting sooner! When the robin arrived a couple of days ago I thought it was a different box coming from Susie. So I put it aside and forgot about it until today. Upon opening it I was so surprised to see that it was the robin and not anything else. LOL Again, my apologies for not posting sooner.

I'll go ahead and dig through the contents (there are 3 large ziplock bags full of seeds!). From there I'll remove and refill.

Thanks for waiting on me! I'll get this box out in the mail tomorrow after posting here about it.

Susie - This is being said with sincerity. Did you ever figure out where and why you came up short on your count of what you thought might be missing seeds? I have been watching, and everyone that has gotten the box so far has reported an abundance of seeds with a well rounded variety as well. I did notice that some you thought might be missing, has been picked out by participants, since the box was in my possession. That was good to see :-)

I know your feelings concerning efrosty and the situation that occured. I accept that (I know, as if I had any other choice, right) So, I wish you the best.

Thanks ladies, for including me in this swap. I'm glad I got to know many of you. Thanks for everything :-)

Happy Gardening,Tina

YES Tina with all sincerity I know For sure with NO Doubt As to who took the seed's from the robin .

as for taken so many packs of seed's, did not bother me it was the fact that there was some that had 2-3 pks alike
that were taken . that maybe others in the group might of like to try .
& all seed robins I have ever been in
rule has always been just replace what you take out .
this was not done .

its all about honesty. to yourself & your friends .
guess I wasn't a friend to who took from me right ?

well another robin about over thank you all.
Trully if I sound hurt , I guess it is true
for I guess maybe I take Truth & Honesty very
sincerly in my home & life .

I 'am the kind of lady that if you hurt me once same
on you.
but hurt me twice same on me .
life goes on when you can forgive,

All is forgiven .

Nancy - I didn't "leave" OBF, I was kicked out.

Susie - I didn't "take" anything from "you" or anyone else.
I don't kow how many times I have to tell you that I didn't take all the seeds you claim to be missing. I, too, am a very honest person. Almost to a fault as I have been told.
Your post to my name in the rate and review forum wasn't a bit honest. I've tried over and over with you. I thought over Christmas, when you wanted me to bring you two puppies, that you had gotten passed all this crap. I honestly don't know what started all this to being with.

I was sincere in my earlier post and you was sincerely rude and sarcastic in yours. I'm through trying.

Hi ladies. I'm very sorry for being MIA. The robin arrived, I went through it, and then an emergency came up that took me away from everything. So everything still lays on the floor where I left it. My sincerest apologies for not wrapping this up faster. The worst part is I will be at work for the next 3 days (I work 12 hour shifts) and will not be able to send the box back out until Thursday. Please, Susie, be patient with me. I have always done my part with the swaps and robins. This time I just happened to run into a terrible snag. I WILL GET THE BOX OUT ON THURSDAY!! :)

Susie, as for the other box I thought was coming from you is from the March OBF swap... the 5 daylilies. It seemed like it was too soon to dig them up! LOL

At last! The Robin is flying back to Susie as of today. I'll post the DC# later on when my headache goes away. I'm currently working on cold #3 in six months. The perils of working in a hospital, I suppose. *sigh* It really stinks to be sick is all I can say.

In any case, I took 28 seed packs and replaced them with 32 of my own. A big thanks to those girls who put empty seed packages into the robin. I ran out of ziplocks and put the spares to good use. :)

Ok... I'm off to take yet another nap. Thanks for a great swap!
