RE: 2nd Annual Bearded Iris Swap Sign up!

Marea, thank you. The paperwork is done, but I will drive home in the morning. Today we got rain, it is pouring down as I'm typing, and sure wish I could share with those that are in a drought.

I have to work Friday night - Monday morning then I'm off till the 27th. I'm not going much of anywhere but plan on doing some serious digging in the dirt.

I hope everyone has a good evening, and will chat more tomorrow.

Abbeyjosmom you are most welcome.

If anyone has any questions you can always post here or e-mail me. I am not going to be home thru the week-end but come Monday morning I done working until the 27th except for 10 hours next monday; I'm taking some much needed time off. After that I'm on the road every other week.

blodeuwedd, please e-mail Susie and/or myself.

I'm going out, I've sprayed myself with Listerine, and I guess I will find out if the flies, gnats, and skeeters leave me alone.

 o
RE: 2nd Annual Bearded Iris Swap Sign up!

Susie, I've not received a reply, maybe I will later.

Sis called me from a friends house and said that the fierce storm that passed through Iowa/Illinois hit hard and fast. She has a hole in her roof from the big tree on the side of the house and is without power. She said again, she was so afraid as a tornado went through last year in June.

I hope anyone else that got hit by this storm are safe.

Hello Ladies,

I've made it back home, and I think I've picked up enough logs, twigs, brances and debris that will last me a lifetime. Now the contractors need to start on the the new roof and take down three more trees.

I'm so glad everyone had a good time with this swap, and
I will make a list of who sent and recieved tomorrow. There is still plenty of time as the mail date is August 15.

Hi Annie,
I did hear from Sherry two weeks ago and sent her my address. The send date isn't until the 15th so there is still plenty of time....but, I have to tell you I feel like a kid waiting for Santa to come!! I sent Sherry an email and asked when she expects to send because I will be out of town a few days next week. This way if the time overlaps I can have my neighbor friend take care of the package:)
Cheryl


 o
RE: 2nd Annual Bearded Iris Swap Sign up!

I'm checking in again and was hoping those that mailed or received their packages had posted. Don't be afraid to let me know if you have sent but have not received as I will make sure you get a box.

LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie


 o
RE: 2nd Annual Bearded Iris Swap Sign up!

Hello again everyone! Soooooo sorry that it has taken so long to post and send my swap! My computer monitor died, the washing machine broke, and the expensive and hard to replace tension spring on my garage door broke as well! Not to mention 2 of my best friends in life just both split from thier husbands due to very sad and unfortunate reasons. And then received word that another dear friend has stage 3 bone cancer and is suddenly taking very serious radiation! Oh..... and sadly my 18 year old son who we have been having problems with has been living on his own for a few months and now has went from 2 jobs to none, he's down to 113 pounds, took up smoking among other things, is being evicted, stuck me with a car to pay for since it is in my name and has not been making payments for 2 months unannounced to me, and now it has been brought to my attention he married the girl he's been living with who coincidently enables him to be just how he is being. And I was not supposed to know about the marriage. Life has been very trying lately! So if any of you have the time and think of it please drop a prayer to the Good Lord on my behalf.

Kay -aka- kbugs405- sent me a great box with quite a few different iris I have been wanting but I don't have the list with me as I am not at all organized with everything going on. But I assure you it was a wonderful box of iris and I loved them so much! Thank you so much Kay!

I sent out Sherry's -msbernard's- box on Friday the 15th. The confirmation number is 0307 1790 0004 7471 2259 . Sorry it was sent right on the last day but, well, life has been hectic for me to say the least. It is on the way and I do apologize dearly for my lateness! God bless!
