OBF APRIL $WAP….".A TAXXXXING MONTH"

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Our Bloomin’ Friends requires that you be a member of OBF in order to participate in this swap. If you would like more information about membership, contact Shirley or Carol.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

And Now To The OBF Swap Business For The TAXXXXING MONTH OF APRIL!!!!!!!

OBF’ERS, yes, we all know that April is that dreaded month by many….It is TAX time….Federal and State (for many)! Whether you have already filed your TAX return, or are currently crunching numbers, or have no intention of filing a return (SSSSHHHH), one thing is for sure…….We are all watching our pennie$ and our dollar$! It certainly would be $weet, if our government did the same!!! Let the OBF’ERS show them how it is done!!!

Think BUDGET…..BUDGET….BUDGET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For this APRIL Swap, "A TAXXXXING MONTH", you will send……………….

*Bubbler Envelope (No Priority Flat Rate)…send the following in/on this!
*Utterly fantastic and cheerful note (do not buy a card…save your $$$$)
*Delivery Confirmation Tracking # (on you bubbler)
*G…?????
*E…?????
*T…?????
GET it…..G and E and T are up to you. Let this be simple, relaxing and economical! B….U….D….G….E….T in a Bubbler!

Seeds, garden items, yummy things etc...can be easy on the pocket book and fit in to a bubbler envelope. Just remember, send what you would enjoy receiving!

Sign up until April 6
Partners on April 7
Please mail by April 17

Please post when you send (and do post your DC#) and receive. And, of course, please include what was sent your way.

Since this is "A TAXXXXING MONTH", I will have a few surprise random winners……I figure the government likes to “surprise” us, I might as well “surprise” you too…..aaahhh, the difference being I give prizes, the government does not…LOL!

And, of course, a TAXXXXING round of BINGO is in order. Will post soon!

And now a little Poetry……

THE TAX POEM (Anonymous)

Tax his land, Tax his bed, Tax the table at which he's fed.
Tax his tractor, Tax his mule, Teach him Taxes Are the rule.
Tax his cow, Tax his goat, Tax his pants, Tax his coat.
Tax his ties, Tax his shirt, Tax his work, Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco, Tax his drink, Tax him if he Tries to think.
Tax his cigars, Tax his beers, If he cries, then Tax his tears.
Tax his car, Tax his gas, Find other ways To tax his a$$,
Tax all he has Then let him know That you won't be done Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers, Then tax him some more, Tax him till He's good and sore.
Then Tax his coffin, Tax his grave, Tax the sod in which he's laid.
Put these words upon his tomb, "Taxes drove me to my doom..."
When he's gone, Do not relax, Its time to apply The Inheritance Tax.

SIGN UPS START NOW!! HAVE FUN!!

Annie

Also, I would like to thank Margo for the book that I won from her game in February. She sent a Better Homes and Gardens book on Container Gardening. It is super awesome. I am sorry I didn't get to this sooner, but somehow I missed finding her book as it came during the time that Dad passed. Margo, thank you for your e-mail about it.

Happy Easter to everyone.

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

Nice turn out.....way to go ladies.

Very depressed, got taxes filled out yesterday and OWE...OWE...OWE... I file single and no dependents and have an extra $10.00 a week taken out and I owe more? I have filled our taxes out for years and DH complains I am missing something because people get all this money back.
WELL we paid for the service yesterday and I just glared at him when she said we have to pay. I told him oh we had to pay someone to tell us we owe more taxes? He was very quite on the way home....good idea.

Hope the sun shines today to better my mood.

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

Hi, Ladies-Somewhere in outer space there is an email I sent to sign up for this exchange. I just checked the list & I am not there. Please sign me up & Annie, what a great idea! I am waiting for my taxes to be completed & they must be done to send in to State by the 15th. I am not looking forward to this as lots of things different this year.

The weather is finally changing & supposed to be above freezing starting tonight. I was so disappointed when I checked my Lenten Rose that the frost had gotten. It was loaded with blooms & I failed to cover it. Now I must pay.

So glad to see all you lovely ladies that have signed up. Aren't we a great group? Have a wonderful week & thanks, Shirley, for the name for succulents. I am getting into them Now. Blessings, Margaret

Happy Thursday all.
I wanted to share some news with those of you who did not see my post on the FOSTESS swap. We found out that we are going to be grandparents!!!! My second son and his wife are expecting their first child in October. This is something I have been waiting for. They live in Texas so we won't see much of the baby but we hope to skype as much as we can.

Working on my "GET" and looking forward to partners and BINGO!!

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

This darn website....I just did an entire post after I was logged in....it told me I was not logged in and the entire thing disappeared. I am not typing the entire thing again!

A little guessing game.......FOR A PRIZE....TAX MONTH is about numbers but so is BASKETBALL!!!!

The NCAA Mens Basketball Championship game is Monday night....the semi-finals are this weekend. Lousiville vs Wichita State and Michigan vs Syracuse.

Pick the TOTAL NUMBER OF POINTS that will be scored in the CHAMPIONSHIP GAME on Monday night. (For example, if you think the final score of the game will be 51-50, then your number would be 101). You can not pick a number that someone else has chosen. If no one chooses the exact number, the closest number wins. If the final score was 101 and one person guesses 100 and another person guesses 102...over (102) wins. Post your number here by Monday morning 9 AM Eastern time.

Margo, so happy about your news. Thank goodness for Skype.

Today is the last day for IR$ BINGO sign-ups. The canines will start "fetching" tomorrow.

Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the swap "A TAXXXXING MONTH"

A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers.

Happy Friday,

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

Sorry Vina, but go Michigan, my original home state.

I am guessing 174 as a total as it is the beginning of my address so I am hoping for higher scoring points.

Have a cold that is really gotten to me today. I can't shake an awful headache that I woke up with. I even called off work which is the first time in two years. I have been on the couch all day and really would prefer to get up and get active. I have a 5k to participate in tomorrow evening and I am a little concerned. I just might be walking it the whole way.

Have a good weekend everyone. Margo

Yeah I won something....thanks Annie. Tax time always depresses me. SHoot I forgot to guess a game total....Good luck to those who did. I have been working in my flower beds every spare minute while the weather is cooperating. Work is killing me...we have a lady who is out on medical leave and guess who got half her work load.

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

The way the game is going, it looks like Carol or Melinda will be the winner. I don't know what I was thinking guessing so high. I usually pay more attention to the NBA and not much with college. Forgot college plays less time and a little different resulting in lower points. I am rooting for Michigan and it looks like it is definitely going to be down to the wire for these two teams.

I have three of the six words so far. Margo

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

So who is the ncaa winner?


 o
RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

Good Morning/Afternoon!!!

AND THE GUESSING GAME...NCAA MENS BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME....

The game is history!!!! The final score last night....Louisville 82 Michigan 76......Let us do the math and add those two numbers together....82 + 76 = 158

MaryEllen had 162 and Sue G had 154. AAAAHHHH, 158 is smack in the middle. My rules stated that OVER wins..............Congrats to our WINNER MaryEllen!!! Sue do not fret, I am not the IR$!!!! UNDER gets 2nd prize!
Congrats also to Sue!!!

And, of course, congrats to Louisville for taking it all! Great game...great team!

Thanks for playing!

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

PRIZE WINNERS thus far during this very TAXXXXING MONTH OF APRIL......

*Margo...1st person to say REFUND

*VINA...4th (April/4th month) person to sign up for "A TAXXXXING MONTH"

*Shirley...only person to mention the word "depressed" , (depression, depress, depresses etc) prior to the swap sign-up deadline

Prizes will be sent after all of the games are completed as we possibly might have OBF'ERS who win more than one game...If you win more than one game, I will send your prizes together!

Hello everyone, what a difference a rainfall will make. The grass has been brown and one rain and it has greened right up. The flowers are coming up by inches every day. I LOVE IT!

I haven't gotten any new Bingo words. Do have my package about ready to go out. I will post when it is on the way. Most probably by Friday.

Hope the major storms I have been seeing on the news are not in anyone's area. Have a good day. Margo

Annie,
I'm having lots of fun reading your posts.
Not much luck with Bingo though and I found out I should have asked my husband for suggestions on the basketball game. I had no idea how high the points go.

Yep Annie, got it and much thanks. I will be mailing Carol's package tomorrow.

Two more for Bingo. Good canines!!!

Rain, rain, and more rain. We went down south an hour to meet my son to get his dogs as we will be doggie sitting this weekend. Down that way, the fields look like ponds and lakes and the rivers have gone way over their banks. Was pretty freaky. It isn't ending for them yet either.

Moved the snow shovel which for some reason has been sitting in the corner at the bottom of the porch stairs. Hiding behind it was a white primrose in full bloom. Hello little flowers!!

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

My Bingo card still looks very sad.
Yes, the weather here in the South has been nothing but pollen and thunderstorms.I think we missed the extra bad one yesterday but still heard one in the middle of the night with thunder. It looks like more will show up today.
I am going to try to mail tomorrow and if not then, I'll mail on Monday.Every time I go into town lately I am with someone so haven't tried to stop by the post office.
So nice that you dog sit for your son, Margo. It is usually hard to get away if you have pets. My husband and I usually take turns going out of town - but both of us are getting less inclinded to go anywhere. LOL

And we have another PRIZE WINNER!!!! Jeanne, you were the first person to mention.... post office....not PO or P.O....but post office.

Yes, the post office is significant whether sending a swap or sending in your taxes. Without fail, every year on TAX DAY, the late night 11PM news runs the story about people lined up, bumper to bumper, in their cars to drop of their taxes. I must say, I could not imagine venturing over to the post office at 11:15 at night in order to get my taxes in by midnight...but alot of people do it. Congratulations Jeanne!!!

I have five which I have had for some time now.

What looked like a good weekend to get out and garden according to the forecast a few days ago turned out to be a dud. Rain yesterday and wind, clouds, and cold today. I am so bummed. So much to do out there and if I could get out and clean things up a bit, it would be a great start. Hoping that 30% chance of rain stays away tomorrow so I can do something.

Good Afternoon All,
Beautiful sunny 79 degree day here.
Going to spend a little time working in the yard.

Vina your package is on it's way to you.
DL# which is now called the USPS Tracking # is
9500 1103 6169 3105 4577 05
with an expected delivery date of 04/18/13
Planning and putting the package together was fun.

I have 5 bingo words so far.


 o
RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

Ruth, your bubble envelope is on its way. However, with the craziness of tax day at the post office, I admit I forgot to get a tracking number. If for some reason your package doesn't make it, I will send a replacement.
I've been working in the yard, too. The weather is perfect for it, but I have been so "out of energy" lately. I just hope my energy level gets better. I'm afraid It will only be worse once the heat shows up!

Carol, glad you liked your package. Unless I read it wrong, the candy bar was Ohio State. LOL

Beautiful day here. I don't know how many of you know I like to run 5ks and actually walk more than run them. I have decided to increase my running and tonight my daughter and I took off jogging. I was impressing her at how well I was doing when I went down and face planted on the sidewalk. Broke my glasses, (thank God I had a back up pair), put my tooth through straight through the area right above my lip, scraped my face and hand up, and sprained my hand. I had to go to the er to make sure I didn't need stitches on the piercing I did on my upper lip area, (didn't), had xrays on the hand too. They gave me a tetanus shot and two antibiotics. They say I am really going to hurt tomorrow. :/ Not gonna let it stop me though. We should have been running at the local park which is where we will go from now on. My face looks awful and it's going to be fun explaining it all in the next two weeks.

Have 7 words now, good doggies.

I had a prize in here and no one got it!!! When I listed the 30 IR$ BINGO choices a few weeks ago, I made a mistake and did not catch it until after you guys started emailing in your BINGO picks. My mistake.... I posted 3. W-2 and 7. Form W-2 (obviously the same thing). I waited for someone to call me on it and none of my fellow OBF'ERS did. If you had, you would have won a prize. Since W-2 was chosen today, I had to reveal this!

Another Bingo word for me. I am taking the day to myself today and just laying around and sleeping letting my body heal. The doctor said I would feel worse today but I really don't. My scrapes sting and my wrist does when I do things but all in all, I am just tired. Have to remember I was just about the end of a mile run so that might make a difference as well.

Good questions Annie, I will send my guess on Thursday. Not up to too much thinking, LOL, and I have to work tomorrow.

Hey everyone! So sorry I've been so busy these last few days, I haven't had time to post.

I rec'd Ruth's amazing Budget pack! :) Thank you so much for the lovely tea assortment and the butterfly gummies. Kids sniffed these out and they are already history, lol. I especially loved the card and the poems! Thank you so much!!

Annie, I mailed out your BUDGET on Monday. :) Hope you likey...I took some poetic license with the G~E~T...

Taylor's dance recital is tomorrow night. We've been at dress rehearsal for the last 2 days till after 6. Tonight is girl scouts. We're having a EARTH DAY party! :) Planting glass terrariums for a retirement home, and having a super earth day snack...worms and dirt...yum!

Have a super day!

Hello, Lovely Ladies- I received my "taxxxxing month" package from Michelle yesterday but we have been in the midst of severe thunderstorms here for the last couple of days & received 31/2 inches of rain so far with another 2-4 inches expected in the next day or so. I wonder if you, Michelle,you might be experiencing this also as I don't think you are too far from me. Thanks so much for your package. Now to list it-

Neatest card made my Michelle spelling out "Budget", (Thanks, Annie, for this great swap). Hand creme & 2 bars of soap (hand made, perhaps?), I have been Spring Cleaning & my hands really need some loving care, then, something I have never heard of but am looking forward to trying-Merrill's All Natural Compost Tea. I am going to start some of my annuals soon due to the not so great Spring we are having & want to use this with them. I'll try & remember how it does & let OBF"ers know. almost 20 packages of seeds from "Arkansas Marvel Heirloom Tomato seeds to Sweet Baby Watermelon seeds. Several I am planning of using in a special space for Butterfly's to use, Parsley, different kinds of Basil. What a great batch of thoughtful seeds I received!

Mellon-There is a glitch in my sending yours out but it will be in the mail either today or tomorrow.
There have been great packages flying, I see. Thanks, again, Annie. Such a delightful swap you have come up with. I am absolutely no good at games so save myself the stress of getting involved in them. I will be emailing you soon to learn more about your new house member.

Happy Spring to all. Blessings, Margaret

Good morning, Lovely Ladies-Just ran to the Post Office & mailed Mary Ellen's packge with this Tracking #
9114 9010 7574 2455 6867 65. She also lives in Iowa so it shouldn't take too long to get there. Walked out to get the paper this morning & it was spitting snow. It also is very windy. So much for working out today. This weekend there are so many open houses for plants & flowers. It is supposed to get up to 55 so hope to venture out with my Sister. It is really too early here to buy too much, except maybe perennials. I just love to haunt the green houses in the Spring & Fall to get new ideas & plants. I want to look up the Plants of the year but haven't checked if they are chosen yet. Hope many of you have better weather than we are having here. Have a great weekend, every one. Blessings, Margaret

I didn't get my answers in. Sorry about that. This injury to my mouth is really taking time to heal. I worked all day yesterday and the inside of my mouth where my tooth went through was hurting something fierce. Feels like a giant canker sore in there. My hubby had to rush out to get something to put on it so I could eat. I have to work all day today and 12-4 tomorrow so not looking forward to it.

I need six more words for Bingo. Here doggie, doggie, I have a treat for you :)

Have a good weekend. Margo

It was so cool this morning (39 degrees) I started Spring cleaning when I got up but by lunch time it was sunny and warm so out I went. I wish there were two of me, one for inside doing housework and the other outside doing yard work.

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

Evening Everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted much the last few days...life just gets so darn busy.

Annie, so glad you liked your "GET" :). I just love 'shopping' for swaps! I bought myself the same turtle ankle bracelet I sent you,lol. Craft shows are AWESOME!

Taylor's dance recital was SUPER! The entire group of girls did just amazing!! The recital has little girls starting at 5 up to 17. The older girls closed the show with a tap number from 42nd Street. Loved it!

No, we haven't gotten our piggy yet :( We figured that we could just go to the pet store and get the "habitat" for one. NOPE, the houses that they had looked too small for our piggy. So we had to order one that should be arriving Tues. We made arrangements with the rescue to come next Sat. What luck! They will be at a local store along with other groups at a adoptathon. Taylor can't wait! I've never had this kid totally clean her room so fast in her life, lol! She has such incentive...the new piggy home is 3ft wide and 5 ft long....this thing looks like a piggy condo, hahaha!

Worked outside all day today...at long last. Cleaned the string algae out of the pond, put in the dye to protect my fish. Put out my new heron deterants, which happen to be fake herons, that I got for Christmas. We'll see if they can save the rest of my fish :)

Took all of my garden turtles out of the shed today...whew! Sometimes I wonder WHERE did I get so many?? But, I can't part with a single one. All of my beds but one are all weeded, yeah! Getting a jump start ;)

I do have some plans to move a couple of plants around this year, I think they'll look better somewhere other than where I originally put them.

No new flowers out yet, still too cold. Nothing out of the greenhouse either :( Maybe later next week? Will have to wait and see what the weather man has to say.

So bushed! Off to make a nice BIG cup of tea...
Hope everyone is having a super Sunday!

HAPPY EARTH DAY!!

Just couldn't get my guesses in. I was going to do it at work yesterday but was too busy getting projects done. Last night, I went out to get a good pair of running shoes so I can continue to run without the fear of falling again. I may look funny, but once this mouth heals, I am getting a mouth guard to wear. I still have to worry I will have trouble later after banging my tooth on the sidewalk. Thankfully, it didn't break.

Looks beautiful out and would love to do some garden clearing but my hand still hurts from that darn fall. I can't believe my one finger is not broken. It is actually a bit crooked now.

I have not heard from Mellen. Assumed she had the list of addresses or would ask me for it. I wonder if she forgot she signed up.

Hope everyone enjoys Earth day. Margo

Hi ya'll...I'm sorry I've been "awayish" a lot lately and been so swamped with things I haven't even paid attention to my email til a couple days ago...hope all are doing well and I will get my package in the mail by Wednesday ...please forgive me for being late and sluggish!! i kow we all don't like slugs lol

I got my box from shirley today in the mail...it was full of nice surpises....including a dimension lily, a centerfold lily, and some kiind of beautiful plant that has purple and lemonish colored leaves....i'm assuming it is a kind of perilla or coleus maybe???...i got a pot that i either plan to put the pretty mystery plant in or the dimension lilly in and a pretty garden pillow...can't forget the seeds...there is a pack of wild flax saphyr. achillea millefollum rubra, oreiental poppy billiant red, and echinacea purple coneflower....

Thanks Shirley for an awesome package!!! ...now gonna go plant those lilies lol

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

“A” Game….I modified this a bit….Don’t worry this won’t take to long to get a winner!

Shirley had 9 correct
(2, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15) on the Costco part/ NOTHING on Q’s 2-10
Thus far Shirley 9 points

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Melinda had 8 correct
(1, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12) on the Costco part/NOTHING on Q’s 2-10
Thus far Melinda 8 points

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Jeanne had 8 correct Costco (1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 14, 15) /Q’s 2-10.. Correct # 3 (Notre Dame), #8 Family Feud and #9, the number 8
Thus far Jeanne has 11 points

AAAAAAAAAAAAA
However, your not done yet. There is only one more chance to get the “15” COSTCO answers. The three of you might get them all. Since I have listed what you all got correct, this should help you. It will help you if you look at what the others chose. Pretty Simple!

A few hints on the other Q’s…

Remember, Jeanne has already gotten Q #3, Q # 8, Q # 9 correct.

#2…..length of wedding veil….hint .think a bit longer

#4…..12 or more pieces of this……hint lots of carbs

#5…..color of bridesmaids dresses….hint unusual choice back in 1985..I think it still is. People did not get why I chose this. “Why, I said…because I like it”.

#6….dry dog food brand….hint expensive but they all are

#7…Two Nut tree(s) same variety that I planted years ago…..hint good anytime…so yummy!

#10…favorite actress 40’s and 50’s…..hint keep guessing

Jeanne, if you can not post on GW, email them to me. If you want to answer like someone else that is fine. I will post what you got correct after you each have posted for this round and we will proceed. Try and post in the next day or so.

Good Luck!!

I have a new way of logging on and it's working! Hooray! We'll see how long this goes before it messes up. What optimism - right?

My package from Sue arrived and it's wonderful! She sent garden gloves, gardenia scented sachets, seeds (zinnias which look lovely and seem to grow well for me), and two types of canna tubers. I really like cannas and need to look these up. I'll be sure to get them planted tomorrow.
Thanks so much, Sue. Very thoughtful choices and I love how you decorated the package.

I can't believe I have answers right from your "quiz", Annie. Totally guesses I assure you. Even though I can now type into the GardenWeb message box, it's getting late so I think I will try to answer the remaining questions tomorrow. My brain is saying "it's time for bed."

FINALLY!!!! I am on here. I have been able to see what is going on but not able to respond.

THANK you for the birthday wishes!

I sent Margo's box this morning. I have DC# if you want it. So sorry, Margo, for being so slow, but I hope that I made up for it with what I sent.

Margaret, I DID receive your wonderful gifts!
-a nice Ziploc bagful of peat disks that expand when you place them in hot water. I have been starting veggies in them and am having great luck with the plants.
-a box of dwarf-mixed zinnias
-Remy's seeds from the Sample Seed Shop came the same day as your gifts. I received pkts. of dahlia-sized red zinnia seeds. These were Dad's favorite flower. I will be planting tons of zinnias this year.
-pruning shears....I love these. I will try to keep track of these. :)
-pair of pretty gardening gloves.
-a rock with the name Shelby on it.
-a HUGE Symphony chocolate bar!
-tomato seeds.
Thank you so VERY much, Margaret. I loved it all.

RE: NEW: new: obf april "a taxxxxing month" swap

Sorry to have waited to post my package from MaryEllen. I received a wonderful package of goodies. She went well beyond what was required and I am thrilled with it all.

She started with a note written on a notecard with a picture she took herself of what I think were hen and chicks. In her package I found,

A little Josee Lilac
Oriental trumpet lilies
three types of seeds which I am waiting for the rain to stop so I can plant all of that.
A cute shelf sitting frog which will be cute in my shed
Flower wind chime
Chamomile scented bath fizz, mmmmm
Garden markers and a pen to write of them with
designer writing pad
and three yummy snack size candy bars, (all gone)

Thank you MaryEllen for the fantastic lot of goodies. I love it all.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Margo

This is what I have for other months of this year for hosting.

Melissa sent me a message on facebook and cannot do our swap for May. Is anyone interested in taking the May swap?

I awoke this morning with a terrbile headache and sore throat. I think I have some sinus and allergy issues going on. I called in sick and NEVER do that. I did tell them I would try to be there this afternoon. I checked the medicine cabinet and could not find anything to take. Of course most meds make you sleepy anyway so that won't work.

I helped plant our pink flowers for the Garden of Hope flower bed in town yesterday and it looks so good. The garden club is doing another bed in red, white and blue.
We get so many compliments for our gardens and it feels good when folks stop and think to do this.
