OBF OCTOBER SWAP is......

"FABULOUS & FUN x FOUR"

OBFERS, OCTOBER is upon us. We are cleaning up our gardens, we are waiting for the tricksters to knock on our door, we are planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas, we are thinking about what we will be Winter sowing, and the list goes on and on. So much to ponder. So ladies let us keep it simple!

For the month of OCTOBER, you will send FOUR FABULOUS & FUN "SOMETHINGS" in a BUBBLER.

***ONE of the fabulous & fun "somethings" must be related to gardening in some way.

***the other THREE "somethings" can be anything ie candy, your favorite kitchen tool/gadget, a potholder, a Christmas ornament. Yes, whatever turns you on. Keep it simple, fun, fabulous and economical. Just remember, send what you would enjoy receiving!!

***FABULOUS & FUN x FOUR must be sent in a BUBBLER. PRIORITY FLAT RATE BUBBLERS are fine! No boxes!

***Tracking/Delivery Confirmation PLEASE.

***Sign up Deadline OCTOBER 7
***Partners OCTOBER 8
***Please mail by OCTOBER 19

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!

I love BINGO, so yes there will be traditional BINGO for a prize. More later.
I love surprises, so I will have random "whatevers" along the way for prizes. You never know.... You might just win something and not even know you were in contention for a prize.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sign ups begin NOW! FALL in to October..let us have a FABULOUS and FUN time OBFING together!

Thanks!

Annie

Thanks so much, Annie for making this a easy one. I have lots going on (am called for Jury Duty this month) and my daughter who is disabled fell at home last weekend, broke her ankle & has surgery next week but this will get my mind on something else for a little while! Please sign me up! Blessings, Margaret

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Bingo words sent.

To all my Gardenweb friends, since this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I want to remind all of you that are due for your mammogram to be sure to get it each year. Because my friend is a procrastinator and waited four years to get hers, she is about to start chemo. She has been diagnosed Stage 2 breast cancer. I am taking her to the hospital on Friday to have a port put in. She will have 7 months of chemo then surgery to remove the tumor, then more months of chemo and radiation. It is so hard to see her going through this and it hasn't even begun yet. I just feel it is important to remind all of you in hopes of keeping someone from ever having to go through this.

thank you, Margo

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Jeanne-If you check in...thinking of you today. Hope everything is going well with you. HUGS

Margo-That reminds me I need to get mine done for this year. Thanks

Margaret-So happy to see your post....WE HAVE MISSED YOU. Sorry to hear about your daughter. I hope her surgery goes well next week.

Carol-I was late sending too. Things happen and I get behind but will catch up sooner or later, just hang in there.

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Oh my gosh, somehow I missed the post that I had won the first of the prizes. Annie, I am so sorry to have missed it and must have seemed very unappreciative. I received your email today and that is the first I had noticed of it. I have been so involved with my friend that I have just dropped in and out quickly this past week. My sincerest apologies and my many thanks. I will let you know when my prize arrives.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I am running my 6th 5k tomorrow. This one is at a pumpkin farm and corn maze and after the run, we can do all the fun things for free. It rained all day today so it is going to be a muddy mess. Even more fun. LOL

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Beth-So good to see you joining in this month. Have missed you...glad to see you back.

Congratulations Margo & Jayeanne...it pays to be first.

I got a tip this week on calling a local company about some dirt/compost. Seems they need places to dump it with only a hauling charge. I had been buying it from a nearby neighbor for $30 a dipper and DH was picking it up. So excited when I got home and they had delivered the first load. I only paid $85.00 for them to haul it and got 10 dippers free. It would have cost me $300.00 if I had bought it from my neighbor. Wow he was making a lot of money by storing it on his property until someone bought it.

Bird nest & walnut photo WalnutKwansoCherry_zps2bb7b437.jpg

Eddie and I were trimming our Kwanso Cherry tree and a black walnut fell out of the tree, I was so surprised and couldn't figure out how it got up in the tree. Upon closer observation we found a squirrel had placed two walnuts in a birds nest for safe keeping. Eddie climbed up and got this picture of the walnut left in the nest. I guess the little squirrel got tired of digging holes and burying them, smart squirrel.

Yeah for my 4 chances at winning the prize.....

Thank you Annie.

Margaret, If I do not hear from you, I am going to sign you up for BINGO and do your picking for you, thus you will be playing BINGO with the OBF'ERS. I always say, the more the merrier. Actually, I will let the canines x 2 pick your 15 selections. I trust they will do a better job than I.

Very smoky, fires are in the area. I do not like the fires but I sure like the smell. I am off to make pizza and of course have a little vino.

My Cousin and her husband are coming to visit with me this Friday. We are so much alike it is scary. We like the same things but the only thing that she does that I do not is hunt. She is coming to bear hunt with DH and his buddies. Her and her husband have both killed one in years past. It would absolutely bore me to death I will stick to gardening.

Hello, Lovely Ladies-The names are out & I get to send to Beth, which I don't think I have ever sent to before. That's great-I just sent you an email Beth & would you believe I forgot to ask you for your address to send to? Too much going on here, I think.

Isn't this the greatest? Thanks ,Annie- Please be in prayer for my daughter's surgery which is Wednesday at 3. We will leave tomorrow & stay the night there so we can be there for the surgery & spend so time with her on Thursday. Blessings, Margaret


 o
RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Margaret, I send to you but I should have your address so don't worry about it. Just take care of that daughter of yours and I will be sending prayers along to all of you.

No words for me out of those four.

Annie, thanks for asking about Caprice. Her parents took her to chemotherapy and did not stay because it was a 41/2 hour process. If she can have people stay with her, I will volunteer to do so. Who wants to sit by themselves for that length of time? I imagine the staff is pretty nice and takes good care of her as everyone she has come in contact with has been very kind.

Margo


 o
RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Margaret-Sending prayers your way for your daughter...will pray for her on Wednesday, have it written down and posted on the fridge. I can't remember anything anymore unless I write it down. Travel safely and God Bless.

Annie-DH gives the bear meat away, we don't care for it but he does like deer meat. I can eat a bite or two but that's about it. I'm not much into wild game.

Vina-Sending to you, Yeah.

I have two out of four of the BINGO words.

Shirley, I would love to give bear meat a taste...one of these days!!! How is your Mom?

Margo, thinking of Caprice.............

Vina, shopping "one for you" and "one for me".....that always works for me!!!! What is new with Taylor and Billy??

We have rain...finally. It won't be much but we welcome any rain drops out here.I don't think it has rained here since March or April and even then it was minimal. I was wearing shorts/tank yesterday, today sweats and tomorrow will be shorts again...mid 80's. It smells so fresh outside!!

And speaking of rain...todays quote!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

I am here tonight for a favor. I am in need of quick prayers for my 24 year old daughter. She went to the emergency room yesterday because she first started having stabbing pains in her chest then her left side began tingling and she was dizzy and had difficulty concentrating. She was tested for stroke and bloodclot and when they could not find anything, sent her home. Her pain went away but not the tingling. I took her to the chiropractor and she didn't do any work on her because just simply looking at her and her reactions to certain tests made the chiro ask me to take her back to the er. I took her to a different hospital and they have admitted her. I know someone asked if MS was in the family and I do have a cousin. They are doing an MRI tomorrow and after reading the symptoms tonight, realize that Elizabeth has several of them and they even mentioned some patients had pains described as stabbing which is how this started. I am scared for my daughter and pray that MS is not the problem. Please keep her in your prayers and I will keep you posted. Thanks Margo

Dear God please touch Elizabeth during this trying time.

Margo-prayers for you and Elizabeth. I know it must be very worrisome when your child is going through something like this.

Margaret-Keep us informed about your daughter, hope her surgery went well.

Annie-Thanks for asking about Mom...she is doing ok. I don't see her ever coming home.

Shirley


 o
RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Just got home from the hospital and wanted to update all of you.

All tests have been negative so far. No stroke, no ms, no heart condition. Elizabeth is doing so much better although still has some tingling and an occasion shooting pain in her chest. They are keeping her another night to be sure. So far they have mentioned the possibility of a migraine (some present themselves very oddly) or mini strokes. TIA's I am going up in the morning to see her again and will see what they do as a final diagnoses if they can even do one. Poor thing gets so frustrated and I can't blame her. She is so much more happy and smiling today.

Again, thanks to my GW friends who make me feel so comforted that they are thinking of us. Margo

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Good Morning!

Margo, tests thus far are negative...wonderful. And SO HAPPY that they were keeping her over night to keep an eye on her. Be well, Miss Elizabeth.....

Hi, Lovely Ladies-Thanks for all the prayers & thinking of us. Bren's operation went well except for a couple of things they weren't expecting. Her break was much worse than they thought. The surgeon had to put 6 screws in her ankle & her bones aren't good at all. Probably from all the meds she has had to take for years. The surgeon doesn't use casts so she is still in the boot & he said because of the condition of the bones she cannot have any pressure on it for 4 to 6 weeks! She will be in a wheelchair & will have to hop to get to table, etc. They are so good to do what is necessary for her & she just takes whatever happens & goes with it. I do believe she will one day be confined to a wheelchair as she is regressing some. Her accident was 33 years ago, in a coma almost 3 months & much rehab since then. God has been good & gives the strength & grace needed for all that takes place & I praise Him for it.
Margo, I am praying for your situation, also. I know we mother's would prefer that it happens to us rather than our children & it's hard to take.

Annie-Thanks for your email you sent. It meant a lot to me.

Beth-I still haven't heard from you with your address. I sent an email so please let me know if you got it. I sent it through GW & sometimes that doesn't work.

Have a most wonderful weekend, All. The weather is beautiful here & hope to get some yard work done. Blessings, Margaret

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Margaret, glad that the operation is over and you are right about mothers wanting to take it instead of the kids.

Elizabeth is home now and feeling much better. A couple things still persist a little bit. No real diagnosis but migraine and mini strokes are the possibilities still. She is going to go to another neurologist to see what he thinks. Elizabeth still feels it was a mini stroke. Thankfully, either one will not cause any real damage so she will be fine. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.

Only two words so far for me. Margaret, will be working on your package soon. Hope you all have a good weekend. Margo

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Margaret-Thanks for the update..so happy to hear Bren's operation went well. God is Good all the time.

Margo-Thanks for the update about Elizabeth. Sounds like something that may never happen again. God is Good all the time, praise his holy name.

Jayenne-I received my wonderful package today and loved everything you sent. I googled the yellow walking iris so I would know how to care for it. I believe this is the first time I have ever received my package first. Yeah

Received:
Russell Stover Caramel mini pumpkin candy
pumpkin napkins
yellow walking iris plant
cinnamon pumpkin candle
Happy Halloween card

Thank you again Jayenne....I think I will sample my candy now. YUM

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Margo,
Get well wishes for your daughter. I hope she surprises the doctors and mends quickly. Yes, we moms rather be hurting than have our children hurt!
Shirley,
I will keep you mother in my prayers, too. I'm sure all of this is hard on you.

Not a lot going on here... just rest and recover. I can't say I've had a lot of energy to do much more. Oh, I don't think I've passed along that I am going to be a grandmother again next year. Not the daughter with the 2 1/2 year old triplet boys - it's the other daughter who's expecting and this will be their first child and our first granddaughter. It's pretty exciting!

Happy Fall, everyone!
Jeanne

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Jeanne, congrats on the new grandchild Jeanne. Glad to hear you are resting for that recovery which is very important.

Thanks for the well wishes for my daughter. She is still having brain fuzziness and I really feel she is having the migraines without pain. They have a name but I can't remember. I just wish she could start feeling fully herself so she can accept that is what it is. She still feels it is the mini stroke but they last no more than 24 hours and this has been several days.

Our dil is getting close to delivering our grandson. The doc says any day now and if nothing is happening by Tuesday, her doc is going to do something to help her along. I am guessing Brayden will be here by Thursday which if he is born on Thursday, it will be our youngest sons 20th birthday.

Excitement to go along with frustration. :) Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Margo

Afternoon! :)
Woohoo! I have 6 words...still in the runnin'.

Taylor lost her election on Friday :(. She and a good friend of hers, Ike, were running against each other. He won, and Taylor was very happy for him. She then got elected as class representative, so it turns out she'll have to go to the monthly meetings anyway. That's all she wanted to do to begin with. Student government is fun at her school. They have hat days and crazy sock days to raise money for the local animal shelter, and at Christmas they raise money and adopt a local family. The whole gov't. kids all go shopping for the whole family! They wrap everything so the family has Santa presents under the tree :) Such great kids!

Billy has been under the weather/ allergies...all weekend. :( So, my package to Sue will be going out by Friday. He was even home today...such a sad face this morning! When a kid WANTS to go to school and can't. All day..."I miss my friends...I miss my friends...ahhhhhhhh."

Margaret, sending you daughter some well wishes :)

Margo, congratulations on your new grandson! :D I hope your daughter is feeling better.

Shirley, congratulations on your families 5K! AMAZING! You must be so proud.

Have a great Tuesday!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Forgot to post games earlier....here we go!

Tiz game time…in fact two games for you! College Football is Fabulous & Fun….or I think so anyways...LOL!

GAME 1
Fabulous Home State College Football Game…for a prize, of course.

I have chosen the following college football games to be played this Saturday, October 19. I chose teams from your home states as noted below.

Princeton Tigers vs Brown Bears (Jayeanne)
Syracuse Orange (Vina) vs Georgia Tech
Washington Huskies vs Arizona State Sun Devils (Sue and Beth part time)
Iowa Hawkeyes (Margaret) vs Ohio State Buckeyes (Margo)
Florida Gators vs Missouri Tigers (Beth part time)
Duke Blue Devils (Shirley) vs Virgina Cavaliers

The game…so easy, so not to confuse you…..just guess a number!

*Guess how many points Brown, Syracuse, Arizona State, Iowa, Ohio State, Missouri and Duke each will score and then add them together.

For example…..….
Brown scores 0
Syracuse scores 13
Arizona State 13
Iowa scores 10
Ohio State scores 28
Missouri scores 10
Duke scores 35
Total 109 points

That is it…….give me your guess of the total points ex 109 points. No need to give each individual team guess.

*You CAN NOT guess what someone else has already guessed
* EX if 109 is the total points scored by these seven teams, if one person guesses 111 and another guess 107..that is a tie as 109 is smack in the middle. My rules are that OVER wins so the person who guessed 111 is the winner.

GAME 2
FABULOUS NOTRE DAME Game (for a prize, of course)

University of Southern California Trojans (USC) will be playing some football with my beloved Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Saturday as well. BBBBOOOOOOOOO USC !!!!! Go IRISH!

*Guess the TOTAL POINTS that will be scored in the game. No need to pick the winner. If you think the final score will be Notre Dame 21 USC 0…your guess would be 21.

*You CAN NOT guess what someone else has already guessed
* EX if 21 is the total points scored, if one person guesses 23 and another guesses 19..that is a tie as 21 is smack in the middle. My rules are that OVER wins so the person who guessed 23 is the winner.

Please post both your guess’s by Saturday, October 19 6am Pacific time. I will announce the winners on Sunday. Two prizes on the line here…..even if you know nothing about football….take a chance x 2 and you might just WIN!

Good Luck x 2!!

Annie

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Annie, thanks so much for asking. Elizabeth is doing better and still no sure diagnoses but as long as she is feeling better, not much more can be done. Caprice had her first chemo and handled it pretty well. Now the best news

Brayden Woodruff Smith arrived this evening at 6:47 a healthy 7lbs 10 oz and 19 1/2 inches long. Both mother and baby are doing great. The hardest part is we couldn't be there because they live in Texas but we get to meet him in 3 weeks.

Now for my game numbers.

Total for all teams is 127 and for Notre Dame 27.

Margo

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

hey Annie, great quote there. We were visiting a friend yesterday who asked if I would sample his "home made wine". This was 9 AM but being a polite guest I said yes thinking he meant One wine. ( thought wrong), I only sipped four types, but it got the day off to an interesting start. Bet Ben would have approved. LOL
Then we went to the PO and mailed your package. Jack declined to sample. He prefers dark brown ale so he was designated driver.
So, look for the mailman about Saturday, sorry, no Vino in the bubbler.

Since "Octoberfest" was fetched today in BINGO......a little German vocabulary is in order (nothing vulgar here).

Ozapfa (v.) (OHTS-app-fuh)
To tap a beer barrel. The Oktoberfest is inaugurated each year with a ceremonial tapping of the first barrel of beer in the Schottenhammel tent. The mayor of Munich attaches the tap with as few hits as possible. When the tap has been attached, the mayor shouts "O'zapft is!" ("it is tapped!")

Happy Friday!!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Thanks for the German lesson. Up to now, all I could do was ask for Coffee. Maybe now I could get Beer instead. Oom Paa Paa!

Hello, Lovely Ladies-Have finally gotten all of my plants planted this morning & hope it is a little while before we get a heavy frost. I still have some coming (I ordered them a long time ago), the grower stated they would ship between now & Nov. 6th. Wonder if they might have to ship in the Spring.

Beth-I just mailed your package with tracking #
9114 9010 7574 2465 6980 93. I am not sure where Stockton is but shouldn't take it too long. The last package I put in was an afterthought after I read your list again. I have had them & didn't get them planted so hope you enjoy.

We have had such a great Fall here. sure hope it lasts a little while longer as I still have some work to do outside. I suppose it will be there in the Spring but want to get hoses put away & clean some of my tools, too. How are you all coming getting ready for the Winter months? I really like Winter but without the ice we sometimes get.

Bren has good days and bad. She is having quite a time staying in the wheelchair. I know it cramps her style-she is very independent but with her bones so bad, she must stay off her ankle.

So sorry to hear of all situations some of you are going through. Keeping you all in thoughts & prayers. Blessings, Margaret

Morning!

Sue, your bubblie went out on Thursday :) Hope you likey!

Sorry about the mia the last few days, I was "hijacked" at parent pickup by an 8 year old, lol. One of Taylor's friends Uncle's is having a fundraiser for a new wheelchair. Poor kid! He's only 20, and he's had a debilitating disease since he was 12. Being under his parents insurance they won't cover the cost of a new wheelchair! How sickening, he literally cannot leave the house without a wheelchair! And his old chair just pooped out. SO....they are having a fundraiser and Rach asked me to bake "some things" for the bake sale....how could I say no? So, a baking I did... :) Hope they make some good sales with them.

Shirley, I 'd love to play your game!

I guess...

Thanks Annie

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Margo-How very precious....I would love to kiss those little cheeks as well. There is just something about babies that make you smile and want to hold and kiss them. Congratulations on your win.

Margaret-Congratulations to you on your win. Good guessing on the games.

Vina-Your package will go out tomorrow. Good luck on cutting your irises back. I have around 800-900 daylilies and know the feeling of being overwhelmed with all the cutting back.

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Hi, Ladies-Received my swap from Margo today & love everything she sent-A pair of pink garden gloves for Breast Awareness Month, which I really need-This years are almost worn through! Whoppers that me & my husband took care of right away, Halloween kitchen towel, hot pad & oven glove, a solar witch, baggies for seeds, and my favorite seeds, Cosmos, Psyche, Sea Shell & Double Click & some of her favorite Nasturtiums & a lovely card. Thank you so much, Margo. You really made my day!

I actually won something, Annie, Thanks to you. You have been a real blessing to me through this swap. Such interesting games & this is the 1st time I have been involved in Bingo. Such fun.

I finally got a short time today to get some outside things done. We are supposed to get a light frost tonight so wanted to get the plants I wanted to save in. According to the weather long term we are to have frost several nights this week.

Shirley-Do you cut all your Daylilies' & Iris back in the fall. How in the world do you keep track of all of yours. How about hostas'? Are they to be cut back, too.? I need to get busy, I think. I have been called to Jury Duty this month but it has been postponed so far. Am to call in tomorrow to see if I need to report.

I just talked to Bren & she went to the Dr. today & doesn't have to go back for a month, so she must be doing well staying off of it. That's a relief as her bones are really deteriorating due to all the meds she takes. Thanks so much for all your prayers & support . It has helped me a lot.

Have a wonderful rest of the week & let me know about all this cutting back please. I can't wait to get started! Blessings, Margaret


 o
RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Margaret-Yes I cut everything back...we are expecting frost this Thursday and Friday so I'm racing against the clock. Daylilies and hostas especially get all slimy when the frost hits them. Good news about Bren....Praise God!!!!!

Annie I have only four more BINGO words to go....

I still have daylilies & irises blooming....it's been a crazy year...I hate to cut these all back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Hello ladies, Margo I have been praying for Elizabeth, if she hasn't been diagnosed yet tell her to get her dr to do a doppler, sounds like it could have been a tia, doppler is the only fail proof test. Shirley do you wanna sell starts of in style and collaberation. I'm in love. Beth nice to see you here been awhile. how is Jack, give him my love. hugs beautiful ladies photo carol.gif

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

My Fabulous package arrived yesterday and I need to try to thank Margaret.
Margaret I love everything!!!!! Fall socks and towel are beautiful colors.
Starts of a sedum and a hen and chick plant. All four of these things are going Home to AZ with me so I can enjoy them and baby the plants a bit.
Naked ladies bulbs will get planted here as, I'd never get to see them bloom in AZ .
Thanks so much Margaret.
OH, but there's MORE Nice little desert plates with sunflowers. a pair of spring loaded scissors ( anxious to try these),some packets of flavored coffee ( handy for when we are traveling) a little note pad and two fantastic chocolate covered pumpkin candies. Yum Yum, these never mad it home. LOL
I suspect that Margaret has a problem with her counting, but I'm not complaining and I promise I won't tell.
Margaret, the card and bookmark are very pretty. It was such fun discovering all the goodies in that fat package and I hope to swap with you again soon.
Carol, Jack is doing great. Thanks for asking. We had a couple scares a few years ago but he has been doing very well and we are very thankful. I miss getting to see you and DH.

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Almost forgot......

OBF'ERS, I have been bad...I have been playing a little game with you, kind of tricky....intentionally, of course....for a SUR-PRIZE. LOL!

I have been waiting for someone to call me on this and no one has. Obviously, it has happened more than once. Possibly, someone noticed when I was doing it but did not say anything because they thought I was confused or losing my marbles...or something!!!!! So for a SUR-PRIZE, Jayeanne, Shirley, Margo, Sue, Margaret, Vina or Beth, do you know what tricky something I am speaking of??????????? First person who gets it correct WINS.

Must run....tata!

Annie

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

*Jayeanne........nope....
*Beth.......nope...
*Margo.....nope.....
*Shirley.........nope.......................but I am just kidding.....you are correct!!!!!!! LOL! Earlier in the month when my canines picked the first of the four phony BINGO words, "Trickster", I thought for sure one of you would nail me, but nothing! And then #2 "Prank"...nothing from you guys and then #3 "The Joker"...and nothing! Well this morning, my little Lab grabbed "Scary Carrie"...the timing was good. Congratulations Shirley!!!!! You WIN a SUR-PRIZE!!!!!

Besides BINGO which is still up for grabs, I have another quickie game before the end of the month!

Margo-You are killing me with all these sweet baby pictures. My Boss's little girl is 1 year old and I have not seen her since she was tiny. I got on to him the other day about it and he promised to bring her Sunday to see me, can't wait. They live in SC and he drives to NC every day to work so pleased he is driving that far on Sunday for me to see her.

And one more game!!!!!! Easy as pie!

"WORLD SERIES BASEBALL, THE FINAL GAME"........

*Vina, Shirley, Margaret, Jayeanne, Beth, Sue and Margo......pick one of these numbers below. Do NOT pick a number that someone else has chosen.
*1
*2
*3
*4
*5
*6
*7
*8
*9
*0

Please post your guess by Saturday, Oct. 26 at Noon Pacific time. Whether some of you play or all 7 of you play....there will be some numbers left over regardless. After the deadline on Saturday, I will put all of the names that are playing in a bowl and all of the remaining numbers in a bowl. I will pick a number and then pick a name....that person will have an additional number, kind of a bonus in that you might have a better chance of winning the game. I will do this until the remaining numbers are gone.

And what does the number mean? I can only tell you that it will have to do with the FINAL game of the World Series.
Boston beat St. Louis 8-1 in game 1 of the World Series last night . The FINAL game will be either Sunday (10-27), Monday (10-28), Wednesday (10-30) or Thursday (10-31.)

Pick your number and maybe you will win a SUR-PRIZE!!

Good Luck!!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

I am visiting my son in Indiana and forgot to bring my Bingo words with me. I am pretty sure I needed a couple words that came up yesterday and today but I don't think I have Bingo yet. If no one calls the big B, I can check when I get home tomorrow night.

I had to drive a 61/2 hour drive to get here and dreaded it but it really wasn't too bad. We have been having a good time and I will be sad to go tomorrow but this is just temporary. My son is doing an internship at a company here so will be back at college in January. That is only a 2 1/2 hour drive.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Margo

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

BINGO....WHAT!!!! No one called BINGO!!!!! OK, here are two more for you! I will check back later. If no one has called the "B" word, one of the canines will head back to the bowl for another fetch. After, this mornings fetches, there are only 4 pieces of paper left in the bowl!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Woohoo! It must be fate! I've been trying and trying...and trying to post on this thread since Thursday when Shirleys package arrived to no avail...now I have Bingo AND I can post...I reiterate...WOOHOO!

Shirley, your bubblie was wonderful! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!

In my awesome bubblie from Shirley was:
Yummy Reeses Pieces...they were gone before I had a chance to look at everything else, lol.
Amazing hand made soap. Appropriately named 'Love Spell'...smells wonderful!
2 plants...False Spirea: Montgomery and Arum Italicum :D
Autumn Harvest Potpourri
An adorable Scarecrow to decorate my table!
And the cutest mouse Halloween card!

THANK YOU AGAIN SHIRLEY!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

We have a BINGO WINNER!!!! Congratulations Vina!! The dogs are thrilled! That bowl of paper was getting a bit boring for them, even though I gave them a yummy something each time they fetched.

PAY ATTENTION,,,BINGO is not over. There is still an inkling of hope for you (Margaret, Shirley, Margo, Beth, Sue and Jayeanne). There will be a BINGO 2nd place.

I just looked up Vinas 15 BINGO choices up as I did not know what put her over the top. Anoka, MN....Halloween Capital of the World did the trick. I do know that one other person has that on their list but they still needed one more to get BINGO. SSSSSSSOOOOOO........here is the deal.

Today, between 5:30-6:00pm PACIFIC TIME approximatley, after I have poured a glass of Vino, after my full day gardening, my Little Black Lab will fetch one more time. If you have BINGO, let it be known. Whoever calls BINGO,first (in case there a few of you) gets a second place sur-prize. Margo, hoping you will be back home in time. Hopefully, all of you read this. Good Luck!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Morning!

Annie, Thanks for such a fun month!!

We've had cold, nasty rain for the last few days. YUCK! I can't believe I'm saying this but, yesterday, I actually saw a snowflake...can't believe it! I'm wondering where the summer has gone.

Annie, I just love hearing about how your planting cabbage and lettuce right now. Just amazing to me.

Shirley, how's your mom doing?

Margo, how's your daughter? And your new grandbaby?

This month is almost wrapped up. :) Who has November?

Happy Almost Halloween!!!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Vina, I forget that you gardeners in other parts of the country can not plant. I started so much lettuce, bok choy, cabbage, favas, sugar snaps, garden peas, parsnips, rutabagas, turnips ect in early October and thought I better get some more in the ground. I have never done parsnips, rutabagas or turnips, so anxious to see what happens on that front.

Margo, glad you had a good trip and a safe one. How are Elizabeth and Caprice doing?

Vina, Fabulous and Fun package from Shirley, as always! By the way Vina, what will be your attire on Halloween? If you said, I missed it. Have fun!

OK, BINGO is a wrap. Congrats again to Vina 1st place and Jayeanne 2nd place.

Melinda...heads up you are down for November.
Hopefully Maryanne will check in and see she has December.

Can't believe this year is almost over....Turkey day will be here soon and then Christmas.

November - Melinda
December - Maryanne

Jayeanne-Congratulations on the BINGO win...we play BINGO at work but I have never won. They have some really neat prizes and they e-mail our words drawn each day.

Annie-I agree with the others you are the best hostess ever. I really had fun this month and hate some others missed it.

Had a sad day today...a lot of the Florida residents left to return to Florida for the Winter. I have made so many friends when they joined our local Garden Club. Most will not return until May. I'm debating whether I am going to visit with one of them during January again. The drive was 12 hours long so I'm thinking about flying this time.

Vina-Mom is doing well, the cast is off her arm but she still struggles with walking. I went to visit her during my lunch hour and she told me to push the wheel chair close to her bed..oh no I thought this was how she fell the last time. I made sure it was way over against another wall. I don't think she will attempt to go that far to get in it.

Shirley

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Received my prize of a wonderful dish towel today. Something my kitchen is in need of since all of mine are thin and pretty used. Thanks so much Annie.

Caprice had her second strong chemo treatment last week and did well. A little nausea and that was it. She said she has not missed much work either. They checked the tumor last week and it has significantly shrunk in size.

Elizabeth is doing fantastic and feels better than she has in a long time.

Thanks for asking.

Hope everyone is off to a good start of the week. Spent the day at work putting up three Christmas tree getting them ready for decorating tomorrow. Ugg

Hi, Lovely Ladies-We are getting a wonderful rain here in SE Iowa-much needed & the temps are in the high 50's & low 60's which is very rare here this time of year. I still haven't received all plants I have ordered so these temps are fine for a little while longer.

Annie-I received my gift yesterday & thanks. Such a lovely color of green. Seems I have some color of green in every room of my home. I do so agree that you are a great Hostess & it's been fun even if I can only check in every so often. Things have slowed down some & I am thankful for that.

Glad things are going better for some of you ladies. Life does so get in the way of us doing the fun things we enjoy. I guess we need those times to appreciate the good ones.

And I am also asking-where has this year gone. I can't believe that Thanksgiving will be soon be here & it's late this year so Christmas is closer to coming. I am thankful for Christmas as it is one time of the year that people are made aware of Jesus & what He has done for us.

I see the Hostesses are named for November & December. Looking forward to what is coming up!

Have a wonderful rest of the week & thanks again, Annie, for being such a great Hostess. Blessings, Margaret

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Hello Ladies! I have to say sorry for missing so many of these! They have been great swaps but I couldn't get my computer to post at all on the forums!
I am thrilled to say that I now have a new computer and will be definitely working on next month. I am not very creative, but will try my best to have some fun with everyone. I have missed you all. Did I say my oldest grandson bought me the computer as a surprise! Wow, it was too!
Annie, you are a hard one to follow as you always do so good!
Margo I hope your dgt. is better and what a beautiful baby boy you have!
I will post for sign-ups tomorrow.
Happy Halloween everyone!

Home again. Enjoyed the wedding and all the visiting but the trip was long and we were all happy to be back home. While we were gone there was a heavy frost here. Goodby beans, tomatoes and squash and Hello to a glorious burst of color in the trees. I'll try to post a pic or two in the next few days.
Annie this has been a fun swap. Many thanks
Melinda, god to see you back. I had wondered about you

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

My package was in the mailbox, (crammed I might add), when I got home from Chicago late last night. Thank you to Sue for a great one too. She included

Dishtowel, potholders, and oven mitt in a rooster design. I so need all of these things.
4 packages of breath saver mints, (if she knew me in person, I would think this might be a hint, LOL). I do use these at work all the time since I work with the public.
A package of tea light candles.
A calendar with waterfalls on it and although I haven't opened it to check, I do see that I have been to at least two of them that are pictured and want to see if there are others.
Seeds, sunflower, and two types of nasturtium which are my latest favorite flower.
and lastly, the cutest little clip on cardinal that is light sensored and sings when the sensor goes off. I love it.

Thanks Sue for the great package and thanks to Annie for the great swap. I had a nice time playing all month.

Remember your numbers??? They were.....

*1 Vina
*2 Sue
*3 Jayeanne
*4 Beth
*5 Jayeanne
*6 Sue
*7 Margo
*8 Shirley
*9 Beth
*0 Margaret

Congratulations to Margo. Her number was *7 and the final score was 6-1 (and the math, 6 + 1 = 7.... LOL!)

But we have a second place winner. Sue had the *6. The winning team, Boston, scored 6 runs. Congratulations Sue!

I have one other sur-prize winner....How many "Strikeouts" would the winning team have in THE FINAL GAME? Congratulations to Beth with her *9. Yes, Boston struck out 9 times last night. !
In fact, Boston now holds the record for post season (all 16 playoff games) strikeouts at 165. In just the six games of the WORLD SERIES, St. Louis struck out Boston 59 times....9 of those last night. Lots of strikeouts by Boston and they still won!

Margo, Sue and Beth, I will email you when your little sur-prize is headed your way.

Thanks to all for playing!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Margo, three sur-prize wins for you this month...not to shabby...LOL!

FABULOUS & FUN x FOUR is a wrap...Thanks much for playing! Until next time!!

Happy Halloween....BE SAFE!!

RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Woo hoo, lucky 7. Thanks Annie.

Happy Halloween everyone. Rainy day here and trick or treat was moved from tonight until Sunday. We are supposed to get bad storms but nothing happened. It has no effect on us as we don't get anyone out here in the country anyway.

Margo


 o
RE: NEW: obf october fabulous & fun x four

Margo, Sue and Beth Congratulations.....Yeah

Margo if you had not picked the number 7 I would have chosen it. It is my favorite number for God created the world in 7 days and it is the symbol of divine perfection. The whole word of God is founded upon the number seven.

Beth-Happy to hear you are home and the wedding went well.

Melinda-Nice Grandson buying you a computer....Looking forward to our next months swap.

Hi Margaret....always so nice to read your posts. I have gotten into succulents and have them all over the house and in my office at work. It has been so much fun finding the right pots to put them in.

Can't believe tomorrow is the first day of November...turkey day will be here soon.
