RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Where is everyone? I was hoping to get some plants dug for swaps and other trades but we got the best rain shower. We sure needed it too. I think it has forgot how to rain here.
Thank you Dear Lord for the rain we did get.

It's almost bed time again so good night.

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hello everyone! I am still in the swap and excited this being my first traveling daylily swap! I am going to send to MaryS, but will wait to hear from her when she gets back! We got a great rain yesterday and really needed it. Been pretty hot and muggy lately, but it is summer!! LOL! Actually though we have had a lot of rain here for the year for us. My weeds are growing faster than my plants!
Haven't done much this year with new things, as my knee had been in a brace until the 14th ! So it is taking me a little to get back into doing things and not wanting to hurt it again! 10 weeks was long enough! Took away most of my spring! I did order 2 daylilies I had been wanting though. I ordered Eleonore for my mother's memory garden. It is her middle name and her fav colors! And I ordered frosted vintage ruffles. They should come this fall when it is better to plant them. But I never seem to have any problem with them whatever time I plant. I have to force myself not to order alot! I could buy forever but would be in debt forever!Lol! But there is always another one I want, or two, or a hundred!
And of course, I am thrilled to be getting from Debbie. The ones I traded for with her last year outdid themselves this year and were gorgeous!
Haven't heard from you Paul. I thanked you for the brugs cuttings and they are actually doing really well! No blooms but gorgeous leaves. I wanted to know if you had a preference as to what you might like of mine for them, but I never heard back. Then I hurt my knee and haven't done much at all. I will try and send you something for them.
Hope all are having a good summer and looking forward to the surprises in the swap! Melinda

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hi girls:)

Shirley I'm here, this has been a crazy month for me and I'm not sure when the ship deadline is but I'll probably be running into the 1st week of Aug. Hope that will be okay, I'll try to get it out before that but I don't want to make promises I can't keep.

Jean would you please look at my trade list and see if I have anything you'd like, I'll have to be honest, some of them have not multiplied enough, but just let me know what you like and I'll fix you up the best I can:) I was gonna send you some hosta too, but I don't think there's any you don't already have. lol Just email me and I'll try to get this out for you soon.

Marea, I've just decided, I love everything you have so just pick for me, wow, what beauties you have and your iris are awesome too! You don't have to worry about pleasing me!

Night girls

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hi to all! I am back from vacation and my daylilies are in full bloom. Oh I just love this time of year! We finally got a real good rain last night so I will not need to worry about watering for awhile!
Melinda, you can send anytime it works for you!I will not be going anywhere now except the lakehouse, an hour away,on the weekends.
I am looking forward to the swap!
Ellen, I may have to wait till next week to send yours now. It is real wet outside today. I will let you know for sure.
It sure has been real quiet around here for awhile!
What ever happened to the TD trip to the Smokey Mts (I think) Did anyone go? or did that get cancelled?
Off to clean the house!It has been ignored too long!!!Mary

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Welcome back Mary! I hope you had a great vacation. I plan on sending this Monday, but can't guarantee. I never know what may come up! But so far, I hope to dig on Sunday! I hope you enjoy the items I send! I have found a few things you don't have! Fun, huh? ! Melinda

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hello everyone!

I am still here, just MIA. I've had an awful lot to tend to over the past few months.

I've thought of each of you quite often, especially since the Daylilies started to bloom. A few from Anita, several from Marea, some from Mary, .......the list goes on. I can't believe what a show we are getting this year and it's thanks to all my TD friends. My gardens are filled with more Daylilies than I even realized. They are shining through the weeds like beacons and i'm soooo very anxious to move them all over to the new house once they have finished their marvelous display. : )
'Hush Little Baby' bloomed for the first time today......it's just so pretty! I was just out in the dark studying the lone bloom before it decided that it's day is over. Gosh, I need to double check my records but i'm just about sure that Mary B. sent me that one.

I'm going to try my best to get on and give you all an update and post those pictures of all the amazing things Jo sent that I was supposed to do a while back. The blanket for the baby is just so gorgeous and he loves to cuddle with it. Speaking of baby.....he is now 14 months old and is walking all over the place. How time flies!

I need to do some reading to try and get caught up.....I'm kind of out of the loop and haven't read anything since Paul's fabulous vacation. I loved all of your pictures Paul!

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the Summer.

Hugs,
~Dawn (mamabirrd)

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Dear friends ~ so glad to read your posts tonight!

Carol, the technology i have can handle tv screen size photos. Glad you are up & posting again & sending good flower thoughts my way..

I have been wildly busy with my daylilys during this hot spell, getting them relabeled, watered, photographed, crossed with each other, watered, fertilized, watered...
Good news is I can tell Abba, Gregorian Chant, Law and Order, Utopia or Oblivion, Mailmaison Plum, Mephistopheles, Paradise Lost and several other red purples apart on sight now. LOL!
OK, off to start on my swap box, marea


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Just checking in. Good to see people posting again.

Melinda...I got your box in the mail yesterday. I hope you like everything. I tried to choose things from your want list...BTW..I have several other daylilies from your list, but will have to wait until next year to send them as they are too small right now.

Marea...I sent you a "just because" box. So keep an eagle eye out.

I'm getting a few other boxes together to get out next week.

Hugs to all,
Debbie


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Thanks for letting me know Debbie! I am sure I will love everything you sent! Melinda


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Jean-Yes it is nice to see a few more posting. Maybe our swap boxes will arrive soon and we can ohhhh and ahhhh over them. I love reading what each one gets in their boxes.

Mary_s-Good to see you back from Vacation. We all need those Vacations although sometimes I come back as tired as when I left. I Vacation with younger family members and it is go go go. Gloria had planned our great Smoky Mtn. getaway but haven't heard anything since she proposed the offer. It sure would have been nice to meet some of you.

Dawn-So good to see you posting..looking forward to your pictures. How far along are you on the house now? Jo was posting quite regular and she is MIA again. Probably busy with outside things.

Carol-So good to hear you are feeling better.

Night All

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hello everyone. I'm here :).
Just returned from vacation... went camping to Zion and Bryce National Parks in Utah with the boys, then met up with the girls in Las Vegas. It's been about 5 years since the last time I was in Vegas... and I remembered why I hated that place. It'll probably be another 5 years before I forget and agree to go again... LOL.

I hope everyone has fun with the swap. Too much for me to handle at this point.

Shirley, no worries on the irises. Whenever you get a chance is fine.

Dawn, I don't think you posted any photos of the special quilt. Would love to see the final product.

Take care everyone,
Paul


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Paul-It was so nice to do what the girls wanted in Las Vegas though. You're a good man. LOL You may have received your box from me already but wanted to explain about the irises you chose from my pictures. I had a tag made to go on Pink Magnolia and found it after they bloomed still laying on the table...have no clue which one it is now. In your dreams got attacked by an iris borer and I have one small piece left. I did remember you asked for spider daylilies so sent you some of those. Hope you like what I sent.

Woke to a rainy morning and almost decided to stay home and not sell at the market today. The truck was loaded so we decided to try and sell anyway. It started off really slow with a steady rain for almost two hours then the sun came out and people came and bought and bought, was glad we went after all. Trying to decide what to cook for supper I'm cooking green beans out of the garden but don't know what else to have. I came home from the market and made 13 pints of bread and butter pickles. The only way I like potato salad is to put these pickles in it. YUM YUM

Shirley

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hello All! I am thrilled to be able to list my goodies from Debbie! I was thrilled with the box! She sent me these:
Daylilies-spacecoast sonata, ruby spider, dominic, key to my heart, blueberry candy, splendid touch, and guardian angel! Was I happy!!!
Also sent me these--pink bergenia, pretty polly heuchera, pink phlox, rose campion, hardy glads!
Debbie, bless your heart! I love them all!! Thanks so very much! I do also understand how it is a very hectic and busy time of year for everyone! I forgive you and all for not posting alot! I am also guilty of this!
Shirley, don't you just love fresh garden green beans! And the bread and butter pickles sound yummy! My mother and I always made those! Brought back some wonderful memories for me today! Thanks!
Have a great weekend everyone! Off to plant my goodies and pick out some more things for MaryS!! Melinda

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Melinda-There's nothing like fresh green beans, corn, squash, okra yum I love it all. My Mom helped me can the bread and butter pickles. My sister was the one who loved to can me on the other hand wanted to dig in the dirt. Nice box from Debbie.

Marea-Thanks for the link to my favorite song too. I could listen to it all day I think.

Shirley

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Our new ladies should be receiving their daylilies that I promised to send as a welcome and because I missed participating in Marea's swap. I also included the special daylily that I was to send Roxy which was Oceans 11. It bloomed beautifully this year. It was still just 2 fans but it seemed to bloom on and on.

I'll try to get a few pictures posted soon.

BTW as Shirley mentioned...who would be up for a Gatlinburg TN trip in Sept/Oct?
I'll see if Gloria wants to do it, if not I will help with arrangements....but I will have to depend on everyone to pay their own way;0)

Let us know if you're interested.

Hugs to all,
Debbie


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Debbie-Yes I would love to meet up with any or all of the ladies who want to join us in Gatlinburg (Paul you to..bring Shirley and the kids). Gloria may still be interested let us know what she thinks.

Shirley

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

G'morning every one!
Shirley, you are quite welcome for Going to the End of The Line. It always makes me happy. I'd love to hear more about your Sat Market sales - will you email me about it?
Everyone, remember that our ol' mamabear is constantly at her email 'cuz of eBay, she never remembers to come here but answers emails quickly!
I won't have the funds to make a trip this Fall, but please promise me ya'll will take dozens of photos?

My daylily bloom season is winding down now & I am coming up for air. It was a late one this year, more like zone 4 than zone 8 because of the looong cold Spring i had...
There were days I had nearly 300 different daylilies blooming ~ was just heavenly!
But, dang, instead of choosing a few favorites to keep so as to get this hobby under control, I now have dozens of new ones!
All of my '05 seedlings bloomed & several of the '06's - lots of pinks, I have like 500 pinks! It's taken longer for mine to bloom 'cuz of those pots that dry to bricks overnight, I guess. Although some of this years sdlgs have grown really well & should bloom next year, as well as my ten 2007 sdlgs. I get such incredible joy from the sdlgs!!
I finally got almost all of the plants relabeled - amazed me how much time & effort that took since I bought several of each type I liked, like Thais/Forgotten Blues/Dust To Diamonds,
or those essential dozen red purples LOL!

I am mailing Sassy's Perennial Swap box on Monday. She said she's had a hard time getting on GW the past week.
Will try to get your hostas in the mail on Monday, too, MaryS. Will have USPS email you both your delivery conf numbers.
Have a wonderful weekend every one, marea

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hi - I did receive my daylilies from Debbie.

I am very happy with them.

I check in here ever few days, but somehow I have missed 2 swaps - Shirley's and Anita's.

I have had a virus for a couple of weeks, sneezing, coughing, chest congestion. Miserable!

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Update regarding the Gatlinburg get together: I have heard from Gloria that because of some family stuff going on, she has not been able to sponsor a paid trip to Gatlinburg as hoped. She still cannot. But she has no problem if someone else wants to set it up.

I would suggest that first off, we wait until spring to do this...it will give more time for planning and saving money. Second, we should share the cost of the cabin equally, depending on how many end up going. Lastly, decide on someone to put this all together. I would rather not...I have a 1st grandbaby due anytime now...plus there are others that know more about Gatlinburg. So who wants to volunteer? I will help if you need me.

I hope our missing members wander back soon. They are sure missed. Who will I brag to when my grandbaby is born?

Posting more daylily photo.

Big Hugs,
budsnblooms

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Just wanted to pop in and say hello! Also to let Mary-s know that I haven't mailed her box yet! This past week has been over 100 and just too hot and too tired to get out and dig. But will be sending, sorry for the wait.
Also my computer crashed and I am at the libray right now. I will try and check weekly until I get my computer fixed or buy a new one.
So Mary S could you please send me your addy again. I had all that stuff in my files and I can't get to them from this competer. I can check my mail here but not get my folders and files. I will try and let you know for sure when I mail as I hope to this Monday or Tuesday, it is suppose to rain and cool off! Thanks, melinda

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hi everyone,

I wanted to pop in and say hello. I know I've been a little quiet the last couple of weeks. DH had an accident a couple of weeks ago. He got hit by a flying piece of metal in the face. He was lucky, it came close to his eye but didn't take out his eye or his ear or jaw or noose. But on Thursday, he had to have surgery to replace his cheek bone and the support under his right eye.

I wanted to thank Mary S for her wonderful box. I got 8 different, wonderful daylilies and the hosta So Sweet. I will followup tomorrow with the list of daylilies. I gotta say though, my easy favorite is the one named Matt. Not only is it a beauty but it reminds me of my nephew Matt who just joined the army and will be going to Iraq soon. Once it gets bigger, I'll be sharing it with my sister-in-law - his mom.

Marea - your box is packed and will be shipped tomorrow. I hope you like what I've selected for you.

Ellen


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Ellen and Sassy...I am so sorry to hear about your dh's accidents. I wish there was something we could do to help both of your families. I know this must have been just awful. Please know that your are in our thoughts and prayers.

Miriam and Melinda...I am glad you enjoyed your boxes.

Besides Shirley and myself, does anyone else think they might be able to make the trip to the Smokies? You don't need to committ now, just help give us an idea if there is enough interest to get this thing going.

Debbie


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Ellen, I'm so sorry as well to hear about your DH's accident! OUCH! My prayers that he heals fast & can tolerate pain meds...
Thank you so much for bothering with my box with that going on in your lives!! I bet I will love your choices.
I grow 'Matt' and it's a true beauty, both you & your SIL will love it for that reason, too!

I don't know where to read about Sassy's DH's accident - but my prayers are with her & her DH in the hospital, too.

Debbie, realistically, I won't be able to fly out there to party with yall, as much as I want to. Our only income right now is my eBay sales
so it's a big deal here these days to just drive into town... LOL! marea


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Ellen I'm so glad to hear your dh is okay. Mine had a 'emergency landing' with his airplane a few years back that went bad. He had a broken cheekbone, broken jaw, 2 broken ankles. They had to put a plate in to fix his cheekbone, is that what they did with your dh? Lol, he gets so mad when people said he crashed his airplane. Hes always said, if I had crashed it I would be dead! Anyway so that you all know, I've been with him 22 years, married 20, this is his 2nd mishap.

For those of you wondering what the heck, my dh had an accident at work on Wednesday. He was using a grinder saw, it got in a bind and he lost control of it. He was in a corner, lying on the floor, not a good position to get away from anything, when it jammed it hit his arm, severing an artery and then hit his chest just under his ribcage. Thank God no organs were hit in his chest. The jobsite was over 10 miles from the hospital. (He has been a firefighter for over 30 years, he's been firechief for 20, so he knew he was in trouble) He told my stepson they didn't have time to wait for an ambulance. He gave my stepson the direct line for the ER and they were waiting for them. Thanks goodness.

Anyway, hes had surgery, hes fine now. Sorry, didn't mean to blubber on, just wanted you to know the deal. and I want to thank Marea for the awesome box of plants she sent me and my mother got them all planted for me Marea.

And also, Deb!!!!! I so apologize that I didn't post getting yours before this. I did get them and and they are planted also, thank you so much. What an awesome person you are to do that for us newbies. Please forgive me, (both you and Marea) for not listing everything, I have it all written down, but just trying to catch up here.
Please, both of you know, I loved both boxes!

Jean/DirtPig pleaseeeeeeee know I have NOT forgotten you! I'm going to do my best to get your box out this week and I so apologize for being late for my first swap:(

Deb....send me more info, I love Gatlinburg! I've never been in the spring.

Sassy

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hi all,

My DIL is to be induced Friday...so I should be a Grammy either Friday or Sat. I am so excited, this is our first grandbaby.

We have plenty of time to get ready for a Gatlinburg trip so anyone thinking they might like to join us, can start saving a little back now.

Sassy, Melinda, and Miriam, I'm glad you are enjoying your boxes. Annette and Roxy did your boxes arrive safely?

Karen...I have been to your photo album...what a beautiful landscaping job...have you done it yourself? I have absolutely no talent in that area. Luckily for me, daylilies are beautiful where ever you put them.

Shirley...I am posting a picture of the iris "Mt. Cook a "Dawning" that you sent me last year. It bloomed beautifully this year.

Hey Anita...where have you disappeared to?

Big hug to Marea.

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Big hug back, Debbie, and to yall...
Life is odd here - professional roofers are reroofing this big ol' warehouse where my office/computer is & it's noisy & dirty & the electricity is disconnected occassionaly...
I'm starting to harvest seeds now - not 1/2 the amount of last year's daylily seed. I had a long cold Spring and then a VERY hot sudden Summer, it was hard for me, too, so I'm not surprised.

I ASK Anita on the phone why she wont post & she wont answer me...

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hi, all,I am going to jail in september for md and may be hitting some of you up for help with bail, sorry but it is a good cause and I don't wanna be in jail. I feel bad but ya gotta give back every once in awhile and sitting in jail will be my chance to help out some of those beautiful lil children.otherwise I am designing away and raising pups. kids have teeth now so I got tiny puncture marks all over me. most of my days have seed pods but it is open pollination so no planned crosses. if you want some, just ask, should be ready in about a month. sorry to run on. hugs carol

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Jean, I'm so happy you were happy, I hated to send all iris, but had to. I had done way to much damage to my days...I don't have as many as some of you girls, so I'm so glad the iris were ok:)) Anyway hope it was all good:)

Anita...God is good! Yes she is! Don't forget it!

(We) love you!

Jean, have fun planting! I'll be doing the same, just got a new box in today! All iris! And new ones at that:)

Carol always know, I wish for you exactly what you deserve.

Have a good nite
Sassy


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Thankyou Sassy, does this mean you wanna contribute to my bail ? I actually feel honored it is a muscular dystrophy fund raiser and someone turned me in for having a big heart, so the 18th I get aressted and taken to a fake jail by a fireman, if I have bail I get out, if not I get fed their version of bread and water. I will have a web site soon and will post it then. It is at a steakhouse so could be pretty good. friends may be hearing from me, hope you don't mind. being eaten by puppies is enjoyable. hugs carol


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Yes, you should! I feel honored for you! I'd rather see you sit there awhile 'with your BIG ole heart'. I mean, it is for a good cause as you said. So why do you want to escape so quickly? Did you say they're going to feed you or the puppies? I really think you should let the puppies eat first, but thats just me. I wish you the best, I'm just curious, do you honestly think I worry about you talking to your friends? (Remember what I said in my email about your mental health?) I say this with the best of intentions, you really need to see someone and I'm not talking about a fireman or a vet:(


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Sassy, give up please, I will not argue with you on this thread either. please e-mail me privately if you wish to fight. These ladies don't wanna be bothered with our dislike for each other. so once again please don't try to start a fight on a thread. To the rest of you. big hugs carol

So wonderful to see all the new posts. What a busy day I have had. We are still looking for a bigger truck to pull our new camper and have had no luck. Looks like we will be borrowing our Sons truck again to pull it to the campsite Labor day week-end. The car dealerships want a fortune for the diesel trucks and want to pay us nothing for our truck.

Sassy and Ellen hope your DH's are still doing well.

Carol-My grandson got a new puppy about 3 months ago and he was jumping with it on the trampoline. Somehow it fell off and got it's foot hung in one of the springs. He tried to rescue it but it was in such pain it bit his hand many many times. He has all these little pin size holes in his hand. I told his Mom I could not believe he was that tough. The first time it bit me I would have went and got help. DD said such a commotion like you have never heard. Many of the neighbors came thinking he was being attacked by some wild dog. I was concerned about rabies but the Vet said no it was to young to have rabies.

Debbie-Please let us know when that little grandson makes his appearance. Sure hope Audra, Son and Baby are doing well. I do hope I get your box out this week. I will send you a list of some daylilies you can choose from. My irises have not done well this year. The iris borer wiped out quite a few for me. Next year I will definetely spray for those pests. I actually found one in a Siberian iris also. I know the bearded and the Louisianas are susceptible to the borerer but was surprised to find one in a Siberian.

Miss all the ones who haven't posted in awhile. Gloria, Anita, Paul, Canna, Jo, Dawn, MaryB, Mary_s, Karen, Sharon, Dianne, Cindy...Sure hope everything is ok with everyone.

Shirley

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Shirley, I'm very sad to hear that you got borers in your beautiful Iris collection! Dang! I thought I had it bad getting leaf spot this Spring... Let me know if you need to replace any that I have. I'm fixing to divide daylilies this coming week & have Jesus Arose coming your way, I could tuck in Iris, too.

Didn't you stragglers get your Perennial Swap boxes YET?

Anybody have daylilies blooming? I've got some of my fav's blooming today, giving you a link to a slideshow of 'em in case you're interested.
Happy almost back to school ~m'

Here is a link that might be useful: 7 daylilies blooming today

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Marea,

your Possum__ (4 names long)... DL is very unusual. Makes me think of finger curls!

Budsnblooms, well I do my landscaping but my hubby has assisted with tractors, etc if it involves moving loads of dirt or boulders. :)

I don't feel like watering. I'm going with 'tough love' except for new transplants. It is getting down in the 50 degree range at night. My elephant ear will go dormant before ever hitting their stride this year.

Caught 15 monarch butterflies which are now crystalis. We are getting to let them loose in our room for a while and have a short term butterfly house like the one we enjoyed so much in Seattle!

Have been riding horses with the kids about every sunset. Very fun and so lovely in God's great garden!

Is anyone else watching Psych? It's a crack up!

Later!

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

John Gunner (we're calling him Gunner) was born Friday, August 22, 2008 in Louisville, KY. He weighed 8 lbs 9 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long. Baby and Mom are doing fine and were released from the hosp. today. The other GM is staying with the happy couple this week to help out and I will be staying the following week. This should give us a chance to start the spoiling process.

Thank you everyone for your well wishes on the birth of our grandbaby.

Marea, my daylilies are all gone...They didn't do too well this year...first it was too cold, then too wet and for the last 2 months it has been too dry. I checked out your pictures on photobuckets, not only do you have beautiful plants but you really do well with your photography.

Shirley...I'm in no rush for the box, send when you can....I have a box of named iris that I got in the mail while I was in Louisville that need to be planted. When they spread, I'll list them. They are all fairly new cultivars (2000-2006).

Anita...I am so sorry to hear that you have lost loved ones. Is there anything I can do to help?

Hi jumpin4joy!!!!

Ellen and Sassy...I too hope your hubbys are still on the mend and are doing well now.

Hi Jean...thanks...good to hear from you.

I too miss all our MIA's.

Off to post baby pictures.

I apologize to all of you and Carol,

I hope you take it in the context meant. I wanted everyone to know that its over, I accept your apology and absolutely agree, these girls should not have to listen to it, we have decided to come to a truce.

Thank you Carol, I really appreciate everything you said.

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Thankyou Sassy, you have the Best graphics, I love them, your cats were the first thing I liked about you. Debbie, enjoy and spoil him rotten its us grannys job. my oldest grandaughter brought her daughter for me to spoil in july. all she asked is that granpa didn't tell her things he told her when she was little, like all the speed bumps in the road were turtle shells and frogs were turtles without their shells, said other kids at school made fun of her for believing him. Anita you know you are loved and in my thoughts and prayers. Marea , I loved my bed of lilies from you. they are right by my front door and bloomed their lil hearts out. you are so very generous, e-mail chatted with mamma bear, she's still not feeling well but loves us. Dawn is Talon driving yet ? hugs to you all. carol

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hello Ladies! Finally popping in to say hello!
Congrats Debbie on the birth of grandson. Nothing like it!!
Anita, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Very sorry to hear that you have lost loved ones. Also continuing to pray for you and hoping things will be well soon.
Mareas, what beautiful daylilies you have! That celebration of angels is gorgeous (as all the others are also-never saw an ugly one!! LOL). Everyone's pics are great!!
Last but not least is Mary S. Your box went out and the dc # is 03080730000024174326. I hope you enjoy and do apologize for sending so late!

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Good morning everyone,
Have been real busy lately and have not posted here much. Debbie, thanks very much for the daylilies you sent, got them planted and they are doing great. Congrats on first grand, remember how it felt when I had my first. If you need daylilies let me know. I will be dividing some of mine in pots in late Sept. and would love to share with you if you need some. It has been hot and humid here but we have gotten some rain and I had daylilies that rebloomed that have never done this before.

Thanks again for the daylilies.
Annette

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Oh boy... looks like I missed a bunch.

Debbie, CONGRATULATIONS! Will look forward to the pictures.

Dawn, should I draft Talon for my fantasy football team?

Shirley, I received the plants you sent several weeks ago. Thank you.

Marea, How do I love thee... let me count the ways.... or better not... don't want hubby coming after me :).

Seems this group has really dropped off... perhaps it's time for some new blood? Just a thought. My yard is filled to capacity, so I'm not really trading anymore. Feel free to remove me from the group, but I'm sure I'll still pop in to check up on you ladies.

Thanks,
Paul

Good to see you again, Gloria. Now that the weather's cooling, maybe more of us will return to the roost.

Paul, my take on "US" is that we are about being online friends first and active traders second. I love hearing & seeing your experiences of nature/daylies/plants
and would be very sad if I didn't know that eventually you are gonna treat us to another one of your fabulous plant experiences/photos/if we are REALLY good
maybe even your art... ~m'

Marea-I LOVE YOU GIRL!!!!!!YOU ARE THE BEST If you have not shipped my daylily Jesus Arose please add to the box Irises Joyce Terry, Starship Enterprise, Pumpkin Cheesecake and Pineapple and Grapefruit Mints..that is if you have any of them. I bought 6 mints 2 weeks ago and have them planted. If they do well I will share them with you next year. I also will send you daylily Cobalt Dawn, Chocolate Mint, Canna Journeys End, Hostas Pauls Glory and Great Expectations next week. These are on your want list. If you want anything else from my list just LMK.

Well we are up to 4 going on our Spring Trip. Hopefully some others will decide to join us before Spring arrives.

Gloria-If you will drive to Franklin you can ride to TN with me. I think I can drive there with my eyes closed. I have been 5-6 times so far this year and will be going 2 more times before the end of the year. So good to hear from you.

Debbie-That precious little grandbaby...I can never get enough of mine. I am so blessed that they live right beside me. It is strange how love gets bigger and bigger to include ALL your children and grandchildren. My first grandchild I thought I can never love another like I love her. Then Dawson comes along and I love him the exact same way. They are just like mine. Enjoy every moment and every day with him.

Need to finish packing for our camping trip.

Night everyone

I miss you all.......it's been so hard to find any spare time these days. My sweet baby is 15 months old!! And my precious niece turns 2 this weekend. WOW!

Carol, yes, he's off to Penn State. ; )

And Paul, QB #22. : )

Hi all, it's nice to see so many of you here now. I stopped by to see what's going on and to say hi and found out it's "Luv Marea Day", well, gosh, who wouldn't love Marea? She's the best. She tries to talk to everyone and let them know they all count and is just a terrific, loving person so I'll say, I Love you "Rea!!"

Take care all,

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Morning all,
Sorry, I too have been guilty of not checking in very often these days. Life here continues to be crazy with a very heavy work schedule and three needy teenagers. So much new going on with everyone, where do I start?

Well, you know I love you all, BUT I LOVVVVEEEEE MY MAREA (and yes, I do think of her as MY Marea). I've said it so many times before and will always think of her as the heart of our group. Marea, you are one of only a very few here that are always holding us together when we all seem to stray. So even though many of us aren't around as much as we should be - DON'T EVER DOUBT THAT WE LOVE YOU - YOU'RE AWESOME!

Debbie, Congrats on the new grandbaby. What an exciting time for everyone! Will go on over to the picture thread to see if I can find the new pics of little Gunner. Big hugs to you!

Gloria, so nice to see you posting. We miss you.

Dawn, miss you as well. Hope when I get over to the pic thread (if I can find it) there will be some new ones of Talon too. Wow, 15 months already. I remember that age all too well. They certainly keep you running after them don't they? And Brooklynn is 2? How is that possible? Please let us all know how you are feeling too.

Paul, oh no you're not getting away from us that easily. The trading is so secondary here and you know that. We all love to hear your stories of your trips and your wonderful pictures. So no, just forget it, you're not going anywhere.

Anita, hope you're feeling okay these days. Not really sure of all that is going on with you - don't know if I missed it somewhere, but I think of you often and wish you would post and give us an update. We love you, Anita.

Jo, hope you're still reading and know we love and miss you too. Hope you come back to us again.

Shirley, thanks so much for organizing this last swap. Sorry your box hasn't gone out yet. I've looked at your list several times and thought what in the world am I going to send this woman that she doesn't already have????? Oh well, you know I'll come up with something.....good thing you're a hosta lover too. Hope to get to it at the beginning of the week. My daylilies are finally just about done blooming and I did very few crosses this year so I think I can safely dig some now. Need to get a box out to Sharon too so it could be a day of digging. I'm hoping with school starting next week to finally have some days to myself. It has totally been a summer of transporting my kids and their friends around all day every day and pretty much working every night. Where has summer gone?

I would SOOOO love to do the trip in the Spring. Just can't really commit to anything right now. Will have to be on the fence for awhile on this one.

Hello Nancy, Jean, Carol, Dianne, Annette, Sassy, Melinda, Miriam, Ellen, Karen and MaryS!

Better get going on something today. Lots to do before work.

Did I mention that I LOVE MAREA?

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hey everyone, I've got today off ... I am working the entire holiday weekend. sad. Thought I'd pop in and say Hi.

Marea, you are the BESTEST!!!! Love the pictures you posted. Can't believe you have some daylilies still blooming.

I may be up for a few trades next year again. I really cleared out my gardens this summer since my back was hurting. And of course now it is feeling great. Who knew????

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Sharon, bad girl !!! you were in washington state and didn't come to see me, I can only forgive you if you promise if you ever come again you will stop at my house. Paul one of the cuttings you sent me this year is full of buds, I know I owe you something but can't remember what, please remind me. the one blooming is charles grim. I waited about two months before I potted them, so surely did not expect a bloom. We all have Mareas smile in our gardens, and in our hearts. I for one count myself blessed to have her as a friend, so why not have a Marea love fest. my delphinums are putting out a second bloom, I finally got a pink one growing, this is about the fourth time I"ve tried, but first success. Remy please tell me how to tell when a green zebra tomato is ripe ? Hi to everyone. hugs carol

Carol, OMG, I didn't realize anyone in our group lived in WA. We did the Olympic Nat. Park and Seattle. Was I close enough to have visited you???? I'll feel terrible if I was. I couldn't believe how tall the original stand pine trees were ... they rivial the Sequoias.

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Sharon, I live in the Tacoma area, about 50 miles from seattle. I would have come to seattle to make sure you saw the center of the universe and the troll under the bridge. did you go to pikes place market ? you would have loved visiting my puppies, so now you owe me. if you don't mind a slight puppy odor I have a guest bedroom you could have stayed in. it is an open invitation to anyone of you who comes my way, but Sharon now you owe me. blooms are slowing down but I planted a bunch of mums last year and they increased nicely and are blooming now along with autum joy sedum. happy gardening, enjoy the cool fall. hugs carol

Miriam-We never could forget you...you are a part of this daylily group. So good to see you posting.

Nancy-So good to see your post also. Hope your garden was every thing you wanted it to be this year. The drought nearly did me in this year. I dreamed nightly of those water hoses. Couldn't enjoy the blooms for watering constantly.

Debbie-I will wait until next week to send your swap box since you left home to take care of that precious little bundle of joy. ENVY ENVY here.

Anita-Wish you would drop by and let us know you are ok. Miss you terribly.

Jo-Likewise hope you are ok....we worry about you when you are away.

Sharon-So happy to hear your back has mended. My back pain comes and goes. Can't figure out why it does that either. I really cut back on ordering new plants this year. Have a hard time taking care of what I have. Loved all your pictures on the picture thread.

Paul-Glad you received the daylilies. My brugs have not started blooming yet. As dry as it has been they look stunted.

Dawn-It is hard to believe that Talon is 15 months old. He will be in school before you know it. He is a beautiful little boy.

MaryB-Your list is likewise very long. I will love anything you send, you know me I love it all. LOL

Daylilies-Waiting for Peace
Indian Giver x Medium Feather
Peach Magnolia
Trahlyta x Fairytail
Cranberry Challice
Orange Exotic x Satin's Spawn
Gordon Biggs
Island Maiden
Little Heavenly Angel
A lovely Begonia and 2 other nice perennials

Thanks again Melinda for a great package.Sorry I am so late in posting. I thought I had sent an email to you on Monday but maybe it did not go through!

It was our anniversary last night so we went out for dinner!

Things have been busy since I started back to work on the 11th. Our school started the 13th here...way too early for me! The weekend lake season will be winding down soon and we will stay home!

Anita-I am behind too. For sure Debbie's will be shipped next week.

Mary_s-What a great box you received. Love the daylily Waiting For Peace-just beautiful-And what a name. I can remember the first time I saw daylily Peach Magnolia I was in love with doubles after that.

Miriam-We always welcome your posts when you can post. Take care of yourself and those lungs.

Marea-I'm so excited that you are taking over the group. You don't know how happy that makes me. That you care so much about the group that you will keep us together. WAY TO GO MAREA.

I'm still working 10-11 hours per day (No more pay either) I am Salary so I get nothing extra. I was going to take Vacation next week but my boss asked me not to. I really really need a week off but I can't just leave for a week with no one to do the job. I'm counting the days to October it's supposed to be easier when the new Company takes over.

Night all...I'm ready for bed.

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Oh Carol, you have my prayers for your little Tiyli! IV fluids can do miracles & I'm praying for one for her.

Mirium, I didn't forget about you, either. Hope you feel well enough to join in this month's swap so you can feel the love, too *grin*

Shirley, thanks for your support, my friend. That is too much work!! You & Cindy are in the same boat with that dedication to the job keeping you at the grindstone a zillion hours a week. But I know how it happens, I was working like 70 hours a week two Summers in a row at the vet hospital, with 10 hour days on the run that would turn into 14 before the last surgery case was stable and ready to be left alone for the night. Don't know where I found the energy for that! Anyhow, wishing you more than enough health & energy to keep at it until your mean ol' boss lets you take that week off. And hopefully THAT week you can tell me about the Farmer's Market...

Anita dear, I was so HAPPY to see you post! I love you right back, you know it. And I'm happy to hear that you are feeling well enough to get some gardening and box sending done!! Hoping you can join in this months swap.

Even though we aren't QUITE done with the Perennial Swap, I thought I should get this month's started so we can make Jean's Zone 4 planting deadline THIS year...

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Miriam you are in my prayers, Marea, thankyou for your prayers I felt bad asking for prayers for my dog, but I got my miracle her kidneys tested good today, after one 24 hrs of iv's so she came home, she dosen't go outside without me attached to her, I am always on the lookout for toxic items around my critters, but a renter next door moved and left cars, campers, bottles of chemicals, garbage, owners are in their 70's so haven't cleaned it up. Tiyli snuck over there on her potty break. I just love her sooo much and am so happy she is ok now. dh said he wasn't gonna pay for her to be on a kidney machine, that I would have to let her go, so I was a bit worried. thankyou for the prayers. I love ya. hugs carol

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Least expensive? I guess there IS no way to judge that, never mind that part of the prize award qualifications. LOL

Just wanted to emphasize that this swap is NOT to be a deluge of store bought gifts or a call for hundred dollar plants to be sent.
Just 3 things that are special, small & surprizes... marea

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Good morning everyone! I finally have a Saturday off! I too am on salary and have only had 4 full days off in 4 months!! Really sucks! But then someone has to be there to keep things going. Going to enjoy the computer this am and then out to plant, plant, and weed!
Carol, I am so glad your little Tiyli is getting better! Will have to try and keep her home and away from the neighbor's.
MaryS, glad you liked the box! Sorry the fan of little Heavenly angel was small, but only one I had on your wish list!
Mareas-glad you are hosting and would love to be in on the swap for September.
Debbie-I bet your new grandson is getting more grand by the day-isn't he!!
And good to see Anita and hoping things are doing well for you.

Thanks for you prayers Veeja - I covet your prayers - that's the only thing that changes a hopeless situation.
I want all the prayers I can get - I would like to be off this oxygen tank some day - Lord willing. If not the grace to accept it. I haven't done that yet - sometimes , I get angry when I don't have the breath to do anything. Human nature GETS IN MY WAY.

I want to be in on this swap too.

MaryB-Posted on August 29th.

Marea-While I am thinking of it I will tell you about the farmers market where I sell plants in the Spring. It is held on Saturday mornings from 8:00-12:00. You can set up and sell there as long as it is something you grow, canned, made, baked and etc. WE have some of the neatest vendors selling there. One lady grows mushrooms, two other ladies sell goat related items. I could not believe the fudge they made out of goats milk, it was really good. Then they do several kinds of goat cheese. Then we have several folks selling bakery items, several selling fresh vegetables, and I of course sell irises, daylilies, hostas, crocosmia and other plants. I usually quit selling after the daylilies quit blooming. It only costs $20.00 per year and you make very good money. They use the money for signs and advertising.

Carol-So happy your Tiyli is going to be ok. I know how it is losing a beloved pet.

Melinda-I do get my week-ends off thank goodness. I really got alot done today. After DH returned from hunting he helped me weed a huge flowerbed.

Miriam-I pray that you will get off that oxygen tank. I guess you have to go about things in an entirely different way when carrying an oxygen tank around. She doesn't post anymore but we did have a member (Barb) who was in a wheelchair and she did do gardening.

I feel kinda lost since Brittney (Granddaughter) has left for college. It seems so odd that she doesn't come home everyday now. She thinks she wants to be a dental hygienist.
Good money if she doesn't change her mind.

Shirley

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Oh Mirium! I didn't realize you were so limited! You have my prayers too.

Shirley, thanks for the cool & mouth watering description of your farmers market. We have them all over here, too, but I was wondering about the business side:
taxes, licensing, permits etc. I was thinking it would be fun to sell gallon & 12" pots of flowering daylilies & hostas etc. Guess I better find contact info for a local one & get the details.
I bet you keep expecting Brittney to walk into the room, huh? I'm blown away about how fast she grew up! You & Sharon should compare notes about girls off to college.
Isn't Sharon's blue-eyed flower fabulous? I have a couple sdlgs from it here & boy, do I baby those things...

Just in case any of you have been looking for daylilies to purchase, remember to check out our BUSY Canna's website! What bargains to be had!
I was just drooling at it & thought I'd share:

Here is a link that might be useful: Southern Skies Gardens

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Just got back from spending a week with my new grandson. He is just the cutest grandbaby ever. I just can't stop grinning. I'll post pictures so you can share with me.

Miriam, Annette, Roxy, Melinda, Diane (sassy)-Please know that new members are always wanted and loved. Unfortunately, the last year has been a transition time for the TD's. Now that Marea has agreed to lead our wonderful group, we are no longer at loose ends and you should see a big change in the TD's. If you have any questions...ask the person who sponsored/brought you into the group or feel free to ask Marea or me or anyone else in the group. If you're shy about posting your questions, privately e-mail any of us.

I want to join the SSSSwap also. The list is now:
Paul
Carol
Jean
Marea
Anita
Mirium
Melinda
Shirley
Debbie

Sharon I loved seeing the pictures of your beautiful/handsome children. Please keep posting. I've missed you.

Jo have you disappeared again? We would love to hear from you.

Karen I loved the butterfly idea. How are they fed/watered in the house? Cut flowers maybe? Houseplants?

Happy anniversary Anita and David....Pics of Little 'D' please.

I have a list of the rest of you that I will say hello in the next post. I don't want this one to go on too long. But I don't want to miss this chance of giving our old mamabear a big thank you hug and to let Marea know that I love her too and will support her 100% just let me know what and when I can help out.

Off to post pictures and answer e-mail.

Big TD Hugs to everyone,
Debbie

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Thanks, Debbie! I already sent you kudos on the bouncing baby boy, but forgot to tell ya he even makes ME grin.

Had a computer disaster last night ~ windows caused a fatal crash & burn and the only thing my computer would let me do was wipe it blank & restore the original programs...
Lost the past 4 years worth of photos, as well as everything else. Of course I had not gotten around to copying my photos on discs... :( Luckily, I have quite a few on photobucket, so I have some left. Lesson here for yall ~ get that irreplacable stuff copied!

Will draw partners on Friday 8/12 for the SSSS Swap, so c'mon everyone ~ just throw any 3 things from your desk or potting table into a box & sign up!!


 o
RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Was hoping to send a list for you to choose from but think I found some things you will like and were looking for. Off to the picture thread to see if you have posted those pictures yet.

Hi mareas- I tried to let you know that my name is spelled

************* Marie in French and Miriam in Hebrew.
Also I have a most wonderful husband who does not begrudge me his time when I need it. That is why I can still work and have fun in my flowers.

Thanks for your prayers Shirley - that means a lot to me.

Thanks to all of you who pray for me and each other. It is comforting to know that so many here are friends of God.

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

I'm tuckered out. Just dug out a 100# iris pseudacorus. It bent my metal handled shovel. I fought the iris and I won!

Butterfly caterpillers eat the butterfly weed. After they get their wings they don't eat- they just want out. They didn't flutter as I had hoped, they just glued themselves to the glass and begged me to open the window.

My son has his drivers permit. We pray before heading out!

Marea bless you! After a computer crash. We sent our HD to a guy who recovered the old harddrive and pics with some fancy computer stuff. Worth a try? I have no idea if it's too late. It costs. I think the guy was in Oregon.

I'd like a new member with email list if we have one compiled.
Could we have a newer emial list mailed out via emial?

I need to go play with the kitties to fully recover,

Karen

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hi Karen...Making changes now to the member list. I will mail one out to everyone with the e-mail list included as soon as I'm done.

Miriam...please send me your birth month and day to add to the members list.

Shirley...no hurry about the box. Oh, I see you already mailed it. I'll let you know when I get it and don't worry about pleasing me...everything you grow pleases me (grin).
I also hope you will post more about selling at the farmers market as there is a small one not too far away that I have thought about renting a space and selling dl's.

Ellen...I can't believe how much your blonde beauty has grown and changed. Do you have blonde hair too...or did she get that from her dad?

Canna...new pictures of your younguns please...know you're busy but post when you can.

MaryB....Teenagers...run for the hills!!! Just kidding. It's a sometimes difficult age but also a fun one. They're almost grown...enjoy each moment with them.

Dawn...I love the pictures of Talon you posted...Such gorgeous eyes. Visit us as often as you can.

Carol...how is Tiyli?

Paul...A daughter in high school. A fathers nightmare (just teasing). I saw that you play fantasy football...my hubby and son does too. Hubby's teams name is "Flat Rock Cowdogs" in case you are ever in his league. What's your teams name? If you don't mind saying. I'll tell him to keep and eye out for your team.

Nancy it was so good to hear from you. Please let us know what't been going on in your life.

Dianne...thank you for sharing my grandbaby with me. You were right...as soon as I held him...I fell totally in love with him.

Debbie

Hello group.

I'm feeling very embarrassed and ashamed at the moment.
:-( I owe you all an appoligy. I wasn't aware I had been excepted into the group and hadn't been watching the forum. Darn it, I would have known it if I had been. My bad. I'm so sorry and so disappointed in myself.
I found Jeans email while cleaning out my spam folder the other day so I wrote her back asking what TD was and did we have a trade and if so, what did I owe her. She explained that I was a member of the Traveling daylilies group and she got my name and I got Mary B's name for a trade. Sorry Mary. Anyway, She told me it was taken care of when no one had heard from me. I'm so sorry and pretty mad at myself for missing out on the fun you all had. I'd still like to be a member if you'll have me. I promise to keep in better contact and to post on a regular basis this time if you will.

RE: UPDATE: 10,800 Traveling Daylilies

Hi everyone. I talked to our humble leader and she agreed this is an important topic and doesn't mind me posting this. We all love children so why would anyone mind? Right? .................................

I'm just going to cut to the chase, you need to contact both Senators in your state and you also need to email the Senate Majority Leader, its up to his discretion, Senator Harry Reid...Nevada, whether bills are up for being voted on. Please send him emails, he's 'the' most important along with your Senators. If he's not contacted, they might not get heard at all.

If you have any questions please email me, I'll be more than happy to help and thanks Marea! You're awesome and I appreciate your thoughts! This is what I received from (1) of my Senators. Mind you, I also have a residence in NC and I've not heard from either. How dissapointing. I still say we need to also email the Senate leader. I hope you will, whether you post on here or not. I'm not asking for posts, I'm just asking that you act on it!


Dear Mrs.....,

Thank you for contacting me to express your support for child protection legislation. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.
As you may know, Senator Joe Biden of Delaware introduced S.1738, the Combating Child Exploitation Act on June 28, 2007. This bill would establish a Special Counsel for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction, improve the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, increase resources for regional computer forensic labs, and enhance the ability of law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute child predators.
Like you, I am outraged when sexual predators prey on innocent children. There is a growing need for legislation that modernizes the reporting requirements for child pornography violations and enacts stricter penalties for the use of the Internet in violation of child pornography or sexual exploitation laws.

Unfortunately, the Senate Democratic Leadership has twice objected to the passage of S.1738, insisting it will only pass if it is included in a package of nearly 35 other bills, many of which are unrelated and address less vital concerns. The Democratic Leadership has continually refused to bring S.1738 up separately for consideration.

Blocked by these repeated objections, Senator Tom Coburn has introduced S.3344, the Protecting Children from Pornography and Internet Exploitation Act. This comprehensive child protection bill combines S.1738 with the Securing Adolescents from Exploitation-Online (SAFE) Act, which passed the House by a 409-2 vote. However, the Senate Democratic Leadership has objected to this legislation as well.
Currently, S.1738 and S.3344 have been placed on the Senate legislative calendar and may be called to the Senate Floor for consideration at the discretion of Senator Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader. Rest assured, I will keep your thoughts in mind if and when either of these bills comes to the Senate floor for a vote.

Thank you again for sharing your concerns with me. Please feel free to contact me in the future about any issue important to you or your family. It is an honor to serve you and the people of South Carolina.


Sincerely,
Jim DeMint
United States Senator


Dear Senator Reid,
I hope and pray you will make sure S.1738 and S.3344 are voted upon before the session ends this month. I beg your cooperation in this matter for our children's sake. Its long past due and I'm sick and tired of 'our leaders' coming up with any reason they can find to trash legislation that will help save OUR children.
Thank you in advance,
my signature

I admit, I'm not an elequoent speaker, thats why I need all of you! Maybe one of you will say it better than me, I don't care as long as it gets through to them.

Thank you to everyone that helps!
Sassy

You can go to protect.com or oprah.com whichever is easier. Either way, please just do it!

I've always posted pics but have never posted links, so anyone that can do that, please do it now. This is so important, session ends on Sept. 26! Think of how many children will be hurt and killed before they come back in session. Really, think about it:(
