RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Tucking my box under my shirt and sneaking away now before that goofy girl tries to grab it back. LOL!

Fran, are you going to go to the doctor?

Karen, I'm sorry I smacked you with that stick! I didn't see you hiding under there! Woopsy!

 o
Maaaaaybe

Um Karen, I would never do anything like that. What would make you think such a thing. I'm way to nice to plot any revenge on sweet Lisa.

(looking in cupboards for my trusty tazer gun)

Juuuust checkin! I really didn't think you would do that, but I had to ask! And I know that the tazer gun is for self defense, right?? (wink wink, I got ya!)

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Tracy, Tazer gun? OUCH, that will hurt. Who are you trying to fool? But then you might fool everyone by putting that box under your shirt. They'll just think you got chest enhancements. LOL

Fran, I'm sorry you don't feel well. I will fix you a hot toddy. Hmm, that is equal parts of Lemon, honey and whiskey, right? Well, to make you feeeeeeeeeeel real good I'll mix a fifth of each in a punch bowl for ya!

I'm really, really, very thankful I'm getting help in keeping track of these boxes.

Hellooo Ladies,

I told you all that I'd be busy cleaning up after Tracy all day! I think she did a colon cleanse in my motorhome!

Anyway, I'm sorry to whoever has box #9 but I can't steal back #12 YET!

My choice is #9

I'm off to larry's house to show him how to get on the garden web.

I have a party tonight but will check in before I leave.

 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

It is getting quiet again!

I've decided, if it is ok, that instead of the 1 or 2 non-plant items I listed, (I never said what it would be) I'm going to change it to plants. Does everyone think that would be okay to do?


 o
lol

Denise, we're thinking alike!!


 o
Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Yes. We had the same idea about the same time. I wouldn't mind if you just sent plants.

Denise


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

If no one minds, I'd like to change the 2 non-plant items to Daylily 'Nefertiti' 'Pandora's Box' & 'Eenie Allegro'


 o
fun continues....

So, everyone's gonna start adding things to their boxes? LOL. Maybe if I make mine fabulous enough, I'll never have my choice stolen from me! :)

Whatcha gonna do, Sassy? Huh? Comeon, pick something good! Pick one that hasn't been picked, so we can get this thing moving! lol


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Well we made maybe a little progress today. Deb chose her box.

Just leaving work but I'm going to Curves to work out but should be home around 6:00 p.m.

Boxes: New & Improved!

So, here's the deal... I'm Zone 3/4, so whatever is in the box that I get, that is not suitable for my zone, I will give the option of forwarding it with my box (#9) to whoever wins that! :)

Um, Miss Sassy, I have some bad news for you dear. It seems that Carmen has decided to steal your box from you. I know how much you wanted to keep Shirley's box but you have to let go now.

Carmen, you need to find some place to hide. RIGHT NOW!

Ptilda, Karen, and Denise, all of your boxes are perfect! I know I have my eye on quite a few things in all of them.

 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Denise, I think there is a little too much stealing going on in round one! These girls need to get to picking new boxes, don't you think?

I've been looking up a few things from your box and I love the Esther Reed Daisy. Mariann/Galium sent me some that look a lot like it last summer. They had the most amazing blooms this year. I really like the edging on the leaf of Heuchera Ring of Fire. I don't have that one yet!

You solved a mystery for me with posting NZ Brass Buttons "Platt's Black". A lady from GW sent me some in a swap when I first joined, it was my very first round robin. she didn't know what it was called but thought it would be great for my shade garden. Now, thanks to you, I have a very good idea what it is. Thanks!


 o
She did it again!

OH! There goes Ptilda's box again! Say goodbye to it Lisa, bye bye little box...

Deb, you're pure evil.

Lisa, pick again!


 o
Box #9

Don't worry, Deb. I wont steal that box from you! lol

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Tracy, I agree with you about all the repeat swipers in the first round. I think they are just trying to tease the people at the lower end of the list.

Denise


 o
Swiping

Hey, I've only swiped ONCE! Of course, I'm the one that STARTED the swiping, but that doesn't count, 'cause I'm new & didn't understand the severity of my actions at the time! (hehehe)


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Denise, they are quite mean aren't they? Allow me to serve you some refreshments while you wait. I have fresh lemonade, iced tea, pina coladas, margaritas and mojitos. What would you like?

Oh, I think Pat made some fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Care for a slice?


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Denise,
DON'T TAKE IT!!!!! IT'S GOTTA BE A TRICK!


 o
still waiting

OK, I am just leaving work (in about 15min) I told Zack I would take him somewhere special tonight for a treat, he went into daycare the past 2 days with NO fussing!!!!! YIPPEE!!!! It only took 9 monthsfor him to adjust!

I'll check back as soon as I can!

And after all this waiting NO ONE BETTER TAKE MY BOX!!!
If you do I'll cry!!


 o
Just trying to help...

My goodness, Vic! I was going to offer some to you too since you've been waiting so long. I thought you were my bud! What happened? Where'd we go so wrong?

Well, I will offer some to you even though you're such a crabby pants. Cake? Beverage? I have the blender all rev'd up and ready to go.

Ptilda, it really is all your fault. I would NEVER have stolen a box if you hadn't started it. Cake? Tea, lemonade, mojito, anything while we wait for that silly Lisa to come back?

Denise - I know it's hard to be patient but eventually, the early traders will use up some or all their chances to keep a given box. The result is that people who come later get to use their 3 chances when it counts most.

Sorry, Tracy (and everyone). No Pineapple Upside Down Cake today. I do have some fresh-from-the-oven Cinnamon Apple Bread with pecans. It's still too warm to cut but it smells yummy!

Maybe I could whip up something else that would go better with the drinks you're serving... What sounds good to you?


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Ptilda, don't listen to that bs! She lives to steal! (Oooops, that didn't come out right at all did it Tracy?)
You know i'm kidding:))

All I know is shortly these girls on the end of the list are going to give us a run for our boxes! And they'll probably win, but thats ok, I haven't seen a box I wouldn't be happy with.

Vic, hurry back!

Fran, you outta bed yet? Still hoping you get to feeling better, I'm with Tracy, you might better see a doctor hun.

Deb, I still want Toby!

I'm sitting here snapping green beans and keep checking to see new posts. Kenzie is here, but she watching 'Finding Nemo' like she hasn't seen it 25 times. Unfortunately, I need to keep her busy for a bit and give me time to snap these beans.

Sassy


 o
O boy!

Yummmmm! Pat don't make anything else! That cinnamon apple bread with pecans sounds wonderful. You made my mouth water. I'll make a batch of Appletinis and serve some cider instead to suit your delicious bread. Delicious!

Sassy, you take that back! She started it! Not me! I'm just trying to keep my box is all. :O)

Question: is there a certain number of times a player is allowed to steal a box? I think I'm a little fuzzy on the details. (big surprise, I know, ha ha ha!)

Game rules

  • Posted by pat_6 z6 NE KY (My Page) on
    Wed, Jul 8, 09 at 20:13

Tracy - I started to post that same question to Shirley. We (my family) always play that you can only have a given item 3 times, including if you pick it from the pile originally. BUT, I've played it other times where you can actually "steal" the gift 3 times in addition to the original pick.

We'll have to get Shirley to clarify that for us.


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Tracy-The rule is a box can be chosen by someone 3 times and it is frozen-meaning that person has the box and no one else can steal it. So keep up with how many times you have had a chosen box. Say if Sassy chose box #5 and someone took it and she chose another box but somewhere down the line someone takes her 2nd box and she re-claims box #5 the second time. This could even happen a 3rd time so when she chooses box #5 for the 3rd time it's hers....its froze.

Pat-E-mail me a piece of that Cinnamon Apple Bread....YUM

Years ago I had a guy that quit where we worked and actually called me and asked me if I could fax his check to him. Poor guy...I'm nor sure what he thought a fax machine was.

Sassy- Box #5 (Alana's)
(Sassy's has had #5 two times (orig & stolen from Deb), #3 one time (2nd time pick))

Carmen- Box #3 (Shirley's)

Karen- Box #2 (Lisa's)
(Karen has had #2 one time (orig))

Pat- Box #8 (Tracy's)
(Pat has had #8 one time (orig))

Lisa-
(Lisa has had #12 one time (orig), #5 one time (stolen from Sassy) and #9 one time (stolen from Carmen))

Shirley - I'm glad we asked! That's a lot different than we play the game. We play that if you've had it 3 times and you lose it, you can't have it again. About 180 degrees opposite!

So, the girls at the end could end up precluded from getting a specific box? (Theoretically, Sassy might have box #5 locked up by then!) They're not going to like that!

Well, let's just enjoy some apple bread and one of Tracy's drinks. The sugar and the alcohol will take the edge off the wait!

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Lovely Iris Shirley!

Turn your back for a few hours and all heck breaks loose-boxes flying from one house to the other, threats of bodily harm, crying, stealing, and a fair amount of drinking.
May I have a Mimosa, by the way?

Can someone help me understand the whole maximum steals concept a bit better. For example, since Sassy got my box (5) first and it was stolen from her by Lisa (steal 1) who lost it to Deb (steal 2) who had to relinquish it to Sassy (steal 3), is it now off the market?

Not to worry about us late gals, I am sure we'll do just fine.

Alana

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Here is a picture of the iris that will be in my box.

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

SHIRLEY STOP THAT! NO MORE PICS OF BOX CONTENTS LOL.....seeings how I may NOT get to choose your box after all :(...

That one is lovely though, ummmm aren't I the girl who said she wasn't an Iris person? hmmmm I think you ladies are making me change my mind about them!
All the ones you all have ever posted sure are prettier then the plain old plain old you always see.

Tracy/Sassy, I will be fine. I have slept a lot today and not done too too much. My neighbor brought me some tylenol last night and that helped with the fever I am sure I had because I was having chills and I haven't had them in the last for hours, not to say the fever won't come back.

Annie, I usually do make one of those hot toddys and go to bed and sweat it out BUT I don't have the mix for it this time. No lemon, or whiskey.

Thanks ya'll for the well wishes, I will be good to go soon. I hope anyway. I am not sure what it was, but it wasn't fun. I don't feel as bad as I did but I am still not up to par either.

Is is EVER going to be mine and Alana's turns :(? waiting waiting waiting....please don't keep us waiting LOL...

Man as is this could go on for a while hehe.

I spy a few boxes I REALLY like lol....

:O Fran


 o
Rules? What rules?

I'm fuzzy too... on the detailes, not from the Appletini & cider... Are we playing 1 round, or 2? My understanding is that if someone steals my box & I want it back, I can't steal it from the one that stole it from me. BUT if someone ELSE steals it from MY perp., then it's free game. Didn't realize there were number limits on steals... might change my game plan!


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Here is your Mimosa, Alana...Mimosa Pictures, Images and Photos

So as I understand it, if Box # 5 gets stolen again, then she may get the chance to steal it back as her third and final time stealing it, therefore it will be off the market and is hers.

Shirley, Coral Point is so beautiful. I love the shades of peachy pink.

Denise, your purple iris is gorgeous! I love it!

RE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Alana-It has to actually be possessed by Sassy 3 times. She has had it 2 times so far.

Shirley

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Oh girls those Irises are to die for for( not that I want anybody to kill me over that box) yes they are one of my favorites.


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

I'm back! And we're still waiting for Lisa, lol. Now I'm confused, (but it is ok, I'm used to it) cuz I thought box #5 was stolen 3 times and was now frozen. It isn't frozen? It is perfectly fine if it's not, :), but I just thought I had the game figured out. Just think it's funny that I thought I knew what was going on, when I actually don't! lol All I do know for sure, is that I'm having a fun time with this game!


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Ah ha! Thank you. Somehow I missed the part about the same person having it three times. That clears things up nicely.


 o
RE: Two drinks

At least I think it does. Tracy served me two drinks at once so I might be a little foggy. I think she wants to get me drunk so I will be too loopy to steal her box.


 o
rules...

So, you mean, if I steal any one box 3x, it's then MINE & can't be taken from me again?


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Yep, just what I was thinkin'! lol

I chose # 5 originally. Its been stolen since by Lisa and Deb and I got it back. So i'm comfused too! But either way, I don't care. Let the fun continue! I'm in for the long haul!

Sassy


 o
Ok, maybe I get it now?

Shirley......oh, you mean I have to steal it 1 more time? Ok, hehehe, that just means I get to play longer! *smiles*

Thats alright with me *evil grin*

Sassy


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

SOOOO Sassy, ummm what your saying is box 5 since it has been in your's 4x now this time it is YOURS and can't be taken again. SO box 5 is LOCKED right?
SHOOT, I would have wanted that one too, heck WHO am I kidding I want them ALL!!!

OK, I got lost who we waiting on again? LISA, I am not going back to look....

:) Fran


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Here Alana, have a slice of Pat's apple bread, it'll help soak up those drinks!

(Pssst! Pat, soak some of that bread in a little rum first, lol)

Rules: yes, if you steal your box back 3 times it is yours and no one can take it away from you again.


 o
confused

OK so, wait, Sassy has only had box 5 2x then? OMG, I am confusing myself. I will let you all keep up with the details, just tell me when it's my time to choose.
SOMEONE pass me a drink and some apple bread....

:)Fran


 o
Oh, Leeeeeessssssaaaaahhhhhh! Come out & play!

Isn't Lisa supposed to be back from her party by now? She's gonna be all snickered when its time for her to pick a box!


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Fran, all I know is..........I CAN apparently steal another box......or hummmmmm....a dear friend told me......something about stradgey (sp?) maybe those are not the ones I'm after at all????? Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Have fun!

OK, well all I know it there are many ppl in front of me and it will be forever before I can choose a box I think and I am sleepy and I have to go to bed.
Being sick is for the birds....you all have fun I will catch you all in the AM.

Night all,

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Goodnight Fran, I hope you wake up feeling much much better!

Priscilla, I was checking out your page, wondering where you were from, being zone 3, and see that you are right next door to me! One of my daycare moms was just telling me today that they vacationed in Duluth (or TWO-luth as her daughter called it, lol) over the week-end. I'm just a mile from the MN border. You are one talented lady! Kudos to you for going back to college!

Tracy, are you still handing out Pat's delicious Apple Bread? What is there to drink?? Maybe they are gone already! :O(

Shirley and Denise, beautiful Iris'.

Well, it's taking me awhile to type this. I've had to get up and get things for people, and such, so I better close it up, and see what I'm missing! Maybe Lisa's back!


 o
hey fran....

Oh sweet Fran, get some rest, but just know.....your time is coming, and we'll have to sit back and watch you! Oh its gonna be fun and I hope you're feeling better by then, I just bet you will be! I sure hope so:)


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Oh Man, I've got a headache from trying to keep this all straight. HMMMMMMMMMMMM.

Denise, I am so sorry I guess I missed you joining our group. WELCOME! Please e-mail me your address so I can put it in our master file. I guess I've named myself the master name/address person.

ptilda, Yes, you are welcome to some of the coneflower. Just give me a few weeks to get them dug. I work crazy hours and I've taken on a part time job so with that said it will be a bit before I get to you. I've got a few promised boxes to get out ahead of the coneflower. But I promise I will get to you.

Debbie, Your Boston Terrier is very cute. My son as two, and guess who gets to babysit them........yep! me. They leave for vacation on the 27th, and I get to drive up to Wisconsin to get the little devils, I mean babies. Then take them back on August 7th. Their names are Zsa Zsa and Kingston.

Fran, not a iris person? Hmmmm, Well Shirley I think we have converted another. (giggles)

This months swap is very entertaining, and it is good to see everyone having a good time; all the boxes are very impressive. Yes, I'm kicking myself as I'm typing this for not playing.

Sassy,I'm ready for another Kensie picture fix.

Vic, Tracy, Lisa, and everyone else a big wave to you guys.

I will be back later,
LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Whew, all this chatter and it still NOT my turn!!
I want to pick, I want to pick, I want to pick!!!!

Tracy, is Lisa still cleaning up the RV???

All the pics are soooo pretty!

Annie, I would be happy to send you postage for some coneflowers!

Carmen, thanks for the info on the colon cleanse, I really like Fran's suggestion of drinking beer every day much better, but I think at this point I am about to try anything! AND, maybe that would help me loose a couple pounds! LOL

Fran, I hope you start feeling better soon!

Hmmmm, I guess I should start thinking stradegy too! The box(es) that I want are still available, I need to keep them that way! :o) But, I would also be tickled with ANY of them!

I've gotta go water the dogs and then I'll come see if Lisa finally showed up. OH LISAAAAAAAAA.......


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Goodness, you've all been chatty waiting on that Lisa lady!

Yes, there is still plenty of apple bread and cocktails to go around.

Karen, here you go, a slice for you and a nice appletini!

Vic, knowing that crazy cleaning lady, she is probably vacuuming the undercarriage!

Sassy, you just behave yourself, I think you've had a bit too much to drink and I haven't even served you yet! LOL!

Fran, I hope you feel better by morning. This bug is keeping you down too long. Get some sleep!

Big Waves back to you Annie!

Pat, where'd you go? I hope you have another loaf of that bread cooling, we may need it. It is scrumtious!


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

I'm sorry, didn't know I was mis behavin'. I'll try to do better, tommorrow......*wink*

Do these girls have dibs on who is gonna make us wait at night? Is there a pot going that I don't know about?

Hey Annie, I think I forgot to speak back there too! I'm sorry! You know I love you:))))


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Oh yummy! and an appletini. You know what else has been sounding good to me tonight? A grasshopper. (the drink, not the bug!)

I'm getting tired..maybe I'll lay down on the couch for a bit, and check back in a 1/2 an hour.

Come home Lisa!!


 o
goodnight all!

Ok, I think I'm hitting the sack. See you all tomorrow.

(really just going to hide in the bushes so I pounce on the thief that goes after my box)


 o
Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's it! Lisa is gonna be on my HIT-LIST if she makes me wait all night again! I need to see some action! How will I POSSIBLY LAST A WHOLE WEEK? I think I need a drink...


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Crouching down and sneaking in to post...... I'll take box #3.

Lisa


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Ok, I'm not buying it anymore! WHO goes to a party in the middle of the week and is out this late!!
I thinks Lisa is stalling us OR Tracy really did tie her up to make sure she wouldn't steal her box!!

Ok now Tracy, enough fun, you have to let her go so the rest of us can play!

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Hi All-I apologize for not posting that I wouldn't be participating this month. I had actually planned to and was looking forward to my first White Elephant Swap. Unfortunately when I walked around my gardens I was dismayed by the damage done to my plants due to deer, slugs, insects and all the rain we had. I do spray a deer repellent that I make up but it rained every day in June so it washed off. Didn't matter how many times I sprayed. I was so disappointed and upset by the damage. Slugs where the worse I've ever seen. They chewed a new Toad Lily, I bought last year, right down to the stems. Picking them off and using salt was no help what so ever. I encountered fungal diseases and mold everywhere. Needless to say I was to upset to even post.

I hope everyone has a great time this month!
Mariann

mornin'!

Morning everyone! ready to go? :)


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Mornin, all!

I'll be peeking in throughout the day.

Mariann, I feel for you, having so much plant damage! We wish you could have played this month! Hopefully the weather will co-operate and you & your plants will be able to take back control of your flower gardens.

Fran, are you feeling any better this morning?? I sure hope so!

:) Karen


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Hi Mariann, sorry you couldn't play and your garden is suffering, I know what you mean I'm having the same thing. I'm almost afraid to play and get plants because it's too hard to keep them alive in this heat and rain.
I read in another forum that coffee and coffee grounds will keep slugs at bay, so I tried it and it seems to work real well for me, see if that will help with the slugs at least.

Everyone else HAVE FUN STEALING, OOPS! I mean swapping boxes today.
Hugs to all

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Deeeeb, (Ahem)Your turn AGAIN. (Tapping fingers impatiently) You guys are going to drive me to drink with all this back and forth stuff.

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Good Morning Ladies!

I went to a Lia Sophia party last night. I saw people that I haven't seen since high school,that's 27 years for those of you who don't know. I posted the minute that I got in the door! I really didn't think that that theiving Deb would steal another box from me. What's wrong with stealing a box from Tracy,huh huh! I need to get that box back and can't until someone steals it from her!

I'm working today until 1 soooo, if my box gets stolen AGAIN, I won't be checking in until shortly after that.

Lisa


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Tired and cranky checking in!
I actually had DREAMS about this game ROFL

Carmen, it's ok, we all our moments! I knew who you were talking to! I better get that colon cleanse huh?!

Hey Lisa, hows that chart doing with how many times each box was stolen?

Denise, you might as well have a drink, it's not just this game that's gonna drive you there! And, I'm sure it's 5:00 somewhere! lol

Mariann, so sorry to hear about your gardens! I know the rabbits did me in this year too, it is depressing isn't it. I do have them under control now with some spray and the neighbors got a new cat the thinks she lives here. I hope you don't loose a lot and that stuff comes back for you! Hopefully the sun will start shining for you and get rid of some of the pests!

Shirley, this is a GREAT game! I'm sooo glad you did this, even if it is driving me CRAZY!!! :)

I've gotta go shower, I'm sure the ppl I work with would appreciate it! I WILL be able to check in today, my docs in surgery.


 o
Pat....

You are doing a great job keeping track of who had what and how many times!!
I would love a piece of your bread, that does sound yummy!


 o
forgot...

I keep wanting to ask if anyone has those hybrid willows? I'm wondering if they do as good as I see advertised, we really need a wind block of some sort....

Thanks, Vic (now I'm really going to go : )

RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Ok Girls! For those of us that can't get a turn, I say we take our boxes and go play by OURSELVES!!!!!


 o
Traaacccyyyyyyyyy

I can't believe you are holding us up!
Get your *%$($& in here and pick a box!!
: )


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

OMG, I am so torn between which box I want and all this is just so confusing Vic I have to tend to agree with you, we should just go play amongst ourselves. They can come get us IF they ever get to us lol.

I do feel better today but since I have NO idea what it was that had me in the first place I am taking it easy and NOT DOING MUCH at all today, esp. NOTHING to make me hot, I'm afraid I might have set-back and I felt bad enough as it was!

OMG DEB, that is how I feel sometimes LOL. Good clip, I laughed so hard at it, I think it explains a lot of us sometimes hehe.
Good thing you took that box and RAN, I am sure someone is right behind you though.
You KNOW I started collecting daylilies again this year right? HEHE, I sure am eyeing that Slap Me Sassy awful hard! hehe
Nah, no one will hate you after it's all said and done but you better watch Tracy and Lisa, they might lock you in the cellar somewhere. And I don't mean at either of their places LOL. SO BE CAREFUL, watch your back!

Vic, If you pick my box, I have some nice goodies to add to it just for you ;)...HEY, I'm just SAYING, I think you are the only one who is remotely interested in it anyway :(. ARE you interested in it? HEHE....

I feel left out and loney too hehe...

Yes, Karen, I can't believe the silly chits have not taken your box yet. I had my eye on it all along. Don't cry. I love it, I'm going through the cookbook right now! Hmmm, what should I make? Any recommendations?

Poor Pat is stuck with my box. No one else wants it. She was just being polite. Poor girl.

Vic, quit yelling at me. I turned my phone back on. I never have it on by the way and I have no idea how to set up my voicemail. You should call the house phone instead. LOL!

Denise, are you happy? I let you have a turn unlike these other selfish women. Oh no, are you crying too? Here's a hanky...


 o
RE: Update Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap

Karen, rest assured, I wanted your box and a few others which haven't been picked yet LOL.
AH HECK WHO AM I KIDDING??? I WANT THEM ALL DOG GONE IT!!!
There isn't any listed I would be disappointed with, there are just some I want more then others....

I think we should do this type swap again...I wish I would have signed up to host a summer month now....I would do this BUT a little different LOL.
JUST a tad bit, it would keep it interesting and prolly going a little longer hmmmm......

I just want you all to KNOW you are killing me posting these fabulous pics of all these plants.

YES ANNIE, I AM NOT an iris person. THEN Last year you sent me some. THOSE were the only ones I had, BUT I looked them up liked them and because they came from you I would have kept them reqardless of whether I had actually liked them or not BUT since then for some reason EVERYONE has started sending me irises, I THINK it is because I listed one or two you had sent me and now ppl think I want them LOL.
I DO like the rebloomers and I love the double colored ones, and the more unusual colors of them, the only reason I am not really into them is once they have bloomed they're done and tend to get ugly LOL.
BUT don't get me wrong, I do love some of the colors of them as a matter of fact because of you I have started given them a second chance. My mom has a beautiful white one and the bloom was HUGE on it, I told her I was going to get some of it because I saw how big the bloom was, so yes you have turned me around on irises!!!
THEY WERE my least favorite plant, but because of you I have given them to consideration! SOOO, how does THAT make you feel lady? LOL, I'm a convert because of YOU hehe!!!
AND, if you want to through in some of what you offered last in the box you are planning on sending my way please feel free to add, heck I can't even think of what it was now..good grief, I think my brain is fried from all this commotion!

Fran, which ever month you want, I'm sure whoever is hosting wouldn't mind sharing that month. Ya'll can get together on the details and we'll have another white elephant. Hopefully designed so that half the group is not waiting so long to play. I would love to play another one, adds in alot of fun for the month.
