OBF MAY TIZ PARTY TIME, LET US CELEBRATE THIS WOMAN!!!!!

******************************************************

DRUMROLL PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And that woman is SHIRLEY aka BRITTNEYSGRAN!!!!!!!!

And why are we celebrating Shirley during this magical month of May? It is make believe time. Shirley, May is finally your birthday month!!!!!!

In March, Shirley posted the following on an OBF thread, thus the inspiration for this months swap.

"I love the month of May. As you may know my Birthday is December 24th and I have never liked my December Birthday. My Sister's Birthday is in May and she always had a Birthday party. I was so jealous and wanted a party like hers. We were always out of school for weeks during this time and who would come to a party on Christmas eve. My Children always try to make it extra special now because they know I wanted a different Birthday."

Well, Shirley (brittneysgran), this May, your childhood wish will come true. May 24th will be your birthday. You can finally enjoy a Birthday Party during the month of May! The OBFERS are going to celebrate some, "make believe" and make the lusty month of May your birthday month. May will be a month long celebration just for you Miss Shirley. You were jealous of your sis when you were a young girl. Maybe now she will be jealous of you LOL!

Now Shirley, you really have no choice in the matter! You must sign up....LOL!

Here is the birthday scoop......

*You will send Shirley aka Brittneygrans a birthday card (buy it or make it) with one simple something inside the card, examples, a recipe for a desert fitting the birthday girl or a packet of seeds that Shirley would enjoy or a book marker ect..

AND

*After sign ups have concluded, I will partner you up and you will send your partner a May Sprintime card (buy it or make it) and one packet of herb or flower or vegetable seeds your partner would enjoy. Shirley, since this is your birthday month, you will not be partnered up!!! Just enjoy the fun!

So this month of MAY, no boxes or flat rate shipping or tracking. We will keep it simple and festive and fun. Easy peasy as Vina says!!!

*****************************************

*Sign up deadline May 6
*Please make sure the BIRTHDAY GIRL, Miss Shirley, receives her birthday wishes by May 24
*Everyone has the entire month of May to send to their partners.
*Please post here when you send to your partner.
*Please post here when you receive.
*Do not Post when you send to Shirley....surprise is good.

*****************************************

Of course, we will play "SHIRLEY, IT IS MAY BIRTHDAY BINGO" and other games through out the month..PRIZES, PRIZES, PRIZES. You never know when Annie will post a game!!!!

So OBFERS/OBFETTES, let us sing a MAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to BRITTNEYSGRAN and party all month long!
May belongs to Shirley.

***********************************************

And guess what we already have two prize winners!! Jayeanne and Ruth attempted, yes, I say attempted, to guess who we would be celebrating and why. Jayeanne, finally guessed Shirley but did not get why we were celebrating. So first place to Jayeanne and second place to Ruth for giving it a darn good try. CONGRATULATIONS!

Sign ups start now!! It is soon Shirleys Birthday Month of May! Let us flood her mailbox with birthday cards and happiness!!!!

Any Questions, please ask!

Thanks much!

Annie

Annie-Oh my goodness what a surprise when I read this sweet post. You are amazing my friend and I thank you so much. It made me cry to know there are friends who take to heart something you posted months ago. I will have to tell my sister I am having a May Birthday. LOL My GD Brittney is here and spending the nights with me this week. Hunter (her DH) will be gone this week on Company Business and she won't stay by herself. I had her read the post and she said AWE how sweet Mam Maw.

I guess this Birthday will be my 29th and holding. LOL

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Too fun I tell you...it would be so boring without this creative group....Great turn out for a Birthday party...Eleven is a good number.

I stopped by the gardens in town on my way home and planted a few more pink flowers. Will get pictures soon, it was drizzling rain so I was glad I didn't have too many to plant. Bearded irises have started blooming so I want pictures of those as well.

Sylvester and I both are enjoying this.

Happy May Day!

Did anyone ever make May Day Baskets when you were a kid? My Mom loved making and delivering them to very special people.

We'd leave them hanging on the door knob and never tell them we were there. They always knew it was from us, though.

Our baskets looked very similar to the ones in this photo, but they were mostly stuffed with sweet-smelling lilacs.

Sheri, I remember May Day Baskets when I was very little. On May 1, I left a basket of flowers with some candy for a cute boy on his front door step....then ran away laughing and giggling with my friends. My Mom gave me the idea....great memories!

Welcome Carol and Sue! I will update in the morning!

Happy Birthday Shirley!!
Never heard of May Day Baskets, but what a beautiful thing to do.
Was it more of a city/town thing?
We lived on farms way out in the country in NW Georgia.

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Great turn-out for Shirley's party... how fun! :)

Ruth, the May Baskets are an old-timey British tradition, as far as I know. Both my parents delivered May Baskets as kids, in very small, rural towns, here in the US. That was in the 1920's and 30's, though. It's a tradition that's faded-away over time.

GAME TIME!!!!!!

Shirley and her party guests, put your pretty hat on. We are off to the Kentucky Derby which is tomorrow (Saturday).

RULES:
At presant, there are 19 horses running. I have removed horse 11, as it will not be running.

*To each of Shirley's party guests (if you want to play), pick one horse and put your name next to it. DO NOT PICK a horse that someone has already chosen.
*Shirley, the birthday girl gets an additional perk. She gets to pick 2 horses.
*If you choose a horse and it is scratched, meaning for whatever reason it does not run in the race...to bad....LOL!
*If you decide to play, please post your pick by 3PM Eastern/12 Noon Pacific on Saturday. I will then take all the horses that have not been chosen (put them in the dog bowl)...and in another dog bowl put all of the party guests that are playing.......and possibly you will get another horse.
I will then post it for all to see.

Prizes...
WIN....1st
PLACE...2nd
SHOW...3rd

And if you will, as you each pick your horse, copy and paste the entire group of horses with names next to it, so everyone will know who has already been picked. Hope that makes sense!

POST time..6:24PM Eastern on NBC
. I have removed ODDS, Jockey info. So take a guess on who will win the Kentucky Derby. AAAHHH and enjoy a MInt Julep! .

Promise-Love your name, you and I are practically neighbors. I vacation in Tn. quite a bit.

Since no one has chosen California Chrome which is favored to win this race and Vicars in Trouble who has Post position 1 I decided to jump ship and change my choices. Maybe it's a good thing I have never done this before , I may have been a bidding tycoon. Just reading about this race and can't wait to see who wins it.

Sharon-Hope you find some treasures at the garage sale.

Hello fellow friends of the obf and thanks for the welcome. I think I have traded with most of you, I know Margo, Ruth, Jeanne, Beth, Annie, and Jayeanne. Like most of you I like playing in the dirt, mostly flowers and a small garden of tomatoes, cuks, and peppers. I also enjoy swimming, fishing and camping.

KENTUCKY DERBY......

Here we go....

There were 8 horses left that had not been chosen. Susan (skyblue) did not pick another horse in time, so German Shepherd Klaus chose a horse for her first...#13 Chitu.

The dogs then fetched a party guest name (Shirley and all the DERBY playing party guests names were in the dog bowl) and fetched a horse for that person.

So sorry..... a few of you did not get another horse!

Read below to see if you were one of the lucky ones (**)

Good Luck!!

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Welcome to all of our newest OBF'ers and good luck to everyone in the derby!!

I hope yall all had a better day than I did. I just had the longest, most complicated, most asinine tasting-sample to hand out at work today. (For those who don't know, I prepare and hand out food samples at a 'big-box' club store.) This was one of the busiest days of the spring/summer season, and I had a bazillion very messy and time consuming steps to pull off- FAST! To make matters worse, the instruction sheet I was given was useless so I had to wing it. Day three of a five day madhouse... CHECK!
(Thanks for letting me vent!)

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Welcome to the new members. Annie, you are throwing one fantastic birthday party this month!

Congratulations to the horse race winners. Glad to see our birthday girl picked a winner! I not only watched the Kentucky Derby, but I also watched the Kentucky Oaks on Friday and as many of the other Churchill Downs races as I could remember to set up on my DVR over Fri and Sat. Lots of fun! Did anyone else see the start of the Kentucky Oaks? What a wild time at the starting gate!

Annie, I e-mailed my bingo words to you a few minutes ago. Hope you get them okay.

Well, past my bedtime so this is all for tonight.

Jeanne

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Congratulations Shirley, Jayeanne and Margo on guessing the winners of the horse race.

Didn't find a treasure at the city wide garage sales, but it was fun none the less.

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Laura, sorry on the rough day.

I won again. I watched the race and am looking forward to the Preakness. Was not too impressed with some of the horses names. Kind of boring. Lol.

Our fourth child is graduating college today. Emily has just completed her time at Ohio State University. Now to find her big girl job. :)

To Melinda and party guests, you may send to Shirley, the birthday girl, anytime. Make sure she receives by her "Birthday" which is May 24. And do NOT post when you send to her....SSSHHH...surprise is a good thing!

Jeanne, I missed the Kentucky Oaks on Friday. I do love pony races! In Southern California, we have some great tracks......Santa Anita and Del Mar. Del Mar is about 40 minutes South of here...beautiful track. I go every year at least two times during the Summer and I always wear a hat but I wear a shorts, not a dress. It is a very casual track but classy at the same time.
Bing Crosby and Pat O'Brien used to be owners/part owners of Del Mar....that track has quite a history but so does Santa Anita. Many consider Santa Anita to be the finest track in the country.

Shirley, you have never been to a horse race?

Happy Sunday to all!

Annie-No never been to a horse race....I've led a sheltered life. LOL

Margo-Congratulations to Emily on her graduation....a whole new adventure ahead of her.

Ruth-Thanks for taking over the month of December. I will post an updated list soon.

It's been a busy day today....I visited a Church this evening where my Nieces husband was called to preach so he spoke on the beginning of creation. I was blown away and could have listened for hours and hours. He definitely had done years of research. To God be the Glory.

Sheri-Thank you sweet lady. I received my first Birthday gift this month.

Sheri sent:
Crocosmia Big King (Love crocosmia and did not have this one)
Butterfly pot holder (This is gorgeous)
Grand candy bars (Which have been eaten)

Margo! How exciting! What a cute couple they are. He got on his knees... I'm so glad you got that photo. I didn't think men did that anymore. So sweet.

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Hi y'all! My name is Promise. Thank you for allowing me to join OBF group. I am new to GW, home ownership and my gardens are just getting started. I love animals, babies, older people (you just never know what they will say), gardening, music, tie dye, bright colors, coffee, Jesus and my family (3 kids) and friends. Not necessarily all in that order.

Currently,I take care of my kids and a friend with terminal cancer who is doing chemo. I am gardening for healthy food to help me lose weight and feel better. I have a veggie garden, butterfly garden, herb/salad garden, a rock and flower garden and sunflower garden. I go to the YMCA everyday for exercise!!!

Can y'all tell me a bit about you? Smitties, what a wonderful picture! Thank you for sharing.

Please tell me what comes next? I guess I have missed 2 games already. Sorry. I will do better now that I'm in!!!


 o
RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Welcome Promise.

Annie, Emily and Geoff had the ring and Geoff had already asked us as the old tradition goes. Emily just wasn't sure when the actual engagement would be. They have tentatively chosen the date of 9-12-15. My other daughter got married on 6-9-12 so they thought that would be a neat date. Easier to remember. LOL

I will say that yesterday was an exhausting day. I am not really doing much today although the weather is not allowing me to garden. High of 55 today but going to be 82 on Thursday. It's crazy.

Carol-I never thought about I will have to add two years to my age this year....Yikes...the years are adding up too fast as it is. So happy to see you active again....

Promise-You go girl....going to the gym everyday. I wish I could go everyday but it doesn't happen. Sorry to hear about your friend with cancer, here's hope and prayers for her recovery. Just try and read Annie's posts everyday, you never know what awesome fun she has in store.

Margo-Congratulations to Emily on her engagement. When my children left home I got the empty nest syndrome and that is when I turned to gardening.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Today I went to the greenhouse around the corner, where I bought WAY too much goodness (I needed everything, I swear!) then spent ALL afternoon in the garden- even got a little sunburnt. It was wonderful!

Congrats to the various winners so far! I love that your dogs are in charge of Bingo, Annie. How do you work that out, anyway?? (And please let me know if you didn't get my Bingo email.)

Margo, What a wonderful weekend, and I LOVE that you got a picture!

Promise, Welcome to GW. What part of Tennessee are you in? I grew up just outside Memphis. It's beautiful there, but the clay soil is a ^%$# for planting.

Shirley, could you please email me your address? I'm not saying I have something in mind for you, but I have something in mind for you! :)

lilangel - I am by Athens, Tennessee, right between Knoxville and Chattanooga. Fortunately I live on what use to be a cattle farm and some of the soil is decent, but mostly, its not. I am doing everything I can to amend this red clay. So far, we've brought in 3 truck loads of mushroom compost this year.

pinkiris - I did not receive your email but I also didn't receive most of these posts today. I will email you my address if your email is functional on GW.

ruthz - It looks like I need your address! I will be emailing you also thru GW.

Today I took my friend who is doing chemo to get her hair shaved off because it is falling out. Being with her reminds me how blessed I am to be in this moment. Hopefully y'all are feeling just as blessed.

Thank you again for letting me be a part of your group.

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Woo Hoo another Birthday card.....

Thank you Jayeanne for the beautiful card, Dragonfly Friends pin and the Giant Asters of California Mixed seeds.

Can't wait to plant these beauties. Never seen the dragonfly friends pins before....On the card there were two and your friend keeps one and sends the other one to you. I have always liked dragonflies and have some dragonfly jewelry.

On the way home I stopped by Lowes and was checking out some plants when I heard a man cussing someone and talking to them awful. At first I thought it was a Father talking to his child. I could not believe it and it had everyone's attention as he got louder and louder. I then found out it was coming from a truck parked close to the table of plants. A small little lady was in the driver's seat and a man was cussing her. I'm not sure if she had cancer or was just really sick but her hair was real thin and she had a hat on and was on oxygen. Well no one confronted the man at all so you know me..over to the truck I went and told him to shut that mouth. At this point another lady walked over and asked the lady in the truck if she needed help and she shook her head yes. The man started yelling at me and told me I did not have to live with her and put up with her. I told him he did not intimidate me and that he was a half idiot. Others helped the lady out of the truck, so frail she was....broke my heart. There was a young man who worked for Lowe's who kept thanking me and all I could think about was Why did you not help her, you were the Male in this situation. The frail little lady came up to me twice and thanked me. Not sure if I handled the situation in a Christian way but I swear I have never been that mad in a long, long time. They did tell me before I left that they were getting some help for her so I pray all goes well with her situation.

Shirley


 o
RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Shirley, Good for you for getting involved and helping. Just always be careful. But it sounds like there was enough people around so he didn't turn violent toward you.

Talking about Lowes .... yesterday I was standing in line. I had a bunch of broken bags and that takes a while to ring up to I let an older couple with just 2 items go in front of me. Such a sweet couple, all smiles and talking to me. So I'm finally out to the car, picking up those heavy awkward broken bags and 2 men came up and asked if I needed help? YOU BET I accepted. KARMA!

And today taking the dog for his walk, the trail swings by a Community Center. A school must have been having their Prom there. Lots of couples and parents on the trail taking pictures. So nice seeing all the highschoolers dressed up.

Anne, hope you feel better fast.

Sharon

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

I took a bouquet of daffodils into work today and now I have to go dig up some bulbs to fill the orders. :o)
sharon


 o
RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Shirley - I admire your willingness to jump into the situation. Agreed, that your safety needs to come first, but it did help being in a public place like Lowes, Being 6 feet tall I have never been intimidate by an idiot either. I can't believe the "men" didn't help. Bless you for helping that frail woman.

toomanyanimals - I concur about the Bingo words!

Annie - Please get feeling better. Push the fluids!

Ruth - I received your email. Thank you!

Note to y'all I am not a savvy gardener, but in my defense since I have found GW, I have learned a lot! Over the past week my husband and I removed 50+ volunteer tomatoes from the garden. Never in my life, would I have thought of a tomato plant being a weed! I do believe they were mostly the yellow pear tomatoes, which are extremely prolific. We are moving more towards canning and freezing varieties this year.

I love having a glimpse into your lives thru this group! Y'all are some wonderful people.

One last thing, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to you fantastic ladies!!!!!!!


 o
RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

Wow, Shirley, what a situation! I'm glad it turned out okay and I hope someone gets help for the lady who was being yelled at.

Sue, please e-mail your address to me. I don't think we have been partners for awhile so I'm not sure I can locate it. I am still at the same address if that helps.

Have a wonderful Mother'S Day. I will try to mail out the first part of the week.

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

My mailing is done. I sent my birthday envelope and my card today.

I am beginning to think it will never get warm and stay warm. The rain keeps falling daily and the temperatures keep going lower and lower. I am worried I won't be able to get any gardening done. I have a porch full of plants that I can't get in the ground and I am having to pull the basils into the house every night because the temps are too cold for them. Ugh.

Not doing too well at Bingo. Have 5 words crossed off so far.

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

I got the cutest card (and a bunch of seeds) from Jeanne.

The card has a picture of a 50's (picture June Cleaver) mom in heels and perfectly coifed hair and apron, mopping a floor and the caption is "I get rid of stress by mopping my floor and buffing it to a perfect shine"

Then you open it up and it continues "Then I bang my head on it for a couple of hours"

LOL!

Here are the seeds I receive (love them all!)

Angel Wing begonias (from her garden)
Portulaca Sundial mix (love portulacas they do so well here)
Marigolds
Euphorbia

Thanks Jeanne!

RE: NEW: new obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this woman

GAME TIME....girls were off to watch the ponies again!

THE PREAKNESS 2014

RULES:

At presant, there are 10 horses running. Rules are pretty much the same as The Kentucky Derby. This time SHIRLEY does not get to pick two horses...sorry!

*To Shirley and each of her party guests (if you want to play), pick one horse and put your name next to it. DO NOT PICK a horse that someone has already chosen.

*If you choose a horse and it is scratched, meaning for whatever reason it does not run in the race...to bad....LOL!

*If you decide to play, please post your pick by 3PM Eastern/12 Noon Pacific on Saturday, May 17. If there are any horses left, I will put horse name(s) in a dog bowl...and in another dog bowl put all of the party guests that are playing.......and possibly you will get another horse.

******If per chance, you come late to the game and all the horses are spoken for, I will have another game....YOU WILL PICK WHO COMES IN LAST PLACE. I don't like excluding people from playing games and since there are only 10 horses and 17 possible OBF players....well, you can do the math....LOL!

I will then post it for all to see.

Prizes...
WIN....1st
PLACE...2nd
SHOW...3rd

And a prize for LAST PLACE if we go down that road!

And if you will, as you each pick your horse, copy and paste the entire group of horses with names next to it, so everyone will know who has already been picked. Hope that makes sense!

POST time..6:20PM Eastern on NBC
I have removed ODDS, Jockey info. So take a guess on who will win THE PREAKNESS .

Congrats on the dinner party Ruth! Also, I got your package in the mail today.

I got a lot of errands done today worrying about my almost 14 year old boy (May 20th) who is at Six Flags Atlanta today for his 8th Grade Field trip. All I can think about is the kid who fell off one of the roller coasters there a few years back. SHEESH!!!

My garden LOVED the rain, I have many yellow flowers on cukes and squash!

My name is Promise and I'm addicted to seeds. I can't stop thinking about and dreaming about seeds and growing more plants. I broke my garden hoe today digging up a new garden bed. Maybe I need to go to Lowes for my intervention.

Have a marvelous weekend everyone!
