Gloomy and cold day with some drizzle here and there.
I did pull out frozen out marigolds and zinnias.

Kittens played most of the day, but There was no Dottie.
I walked along the road way and called for her, but no Dottie.
I wonder if she is locked in at the neighbors garage or chicken coop.
We will see if she is back tomorrow.

Cracked another tooth.

. The kittens were all under the porch this morning. Boy, they really don’t want to stay in the garage over night. (Little buggers)
. Still no Dottie. I hope she is okay.
I have been seeing a lot of red tail hawks and with her white coloring, she can be easily spotted.

Gloomy, a bit chilly and the W I N N D D D D D.

Bette! I cannot wait for my “live prize” to arrive! Hope you poked enough air holes in the box for the little darlings. Glad you sent them priority mail and hope to see a box of meows when we arrive home late this afternoon. We have a wonderful mailman so I am sure he will see to them.
Our vet of 30 some years retired and sold the business, but we have been lucky in finding another, and closer to home with the same type of “feels like home” facilities who also works with rescue organizations.

Love this phrase all kinds of letters and last evening when I got started I just kept rolling along, hope this makes up for the time that will arrive when I am stuck again!

Hubby and I, along with some other governing board members of our volunteer organization are off for Parks & Recreation Autumn Harvest day for the children. They will chose pumpkins & paint them, have their faces painted along with some other outdoor activities. Then they go to the large parking structure for 2 floors of Trick or Trunk. Anyone can reserve their parking spot for their decorated vehicle and hand out treats for the children for about 2 hours.
Most dress in costume, Hubby has kids Halloween music blasting as it can get quite noisy with all those children passing through!
This year our Baseball Athletic Director will be handing out imprinted pens, our President of course chocolate (we eat as much as we pass out I think) we ladies will have rubber ducks for the toddlers and just have a fine time looking a all the costumes parading by. This year due to the cold weather I will be Little Red Riding Hood in a one size too big costume to allow warm clothing underneath the dress and cape.

Wishing all a wonderful weekend and no more cracking teeth with opens up another whole topic and as I seem to be quite wordy today will leave that topic alone.

I would like to offer some prizes for this challenge, do I make a listing in my booth so you may grab the pictures? Snap! been away from Bonanza tooooo long and memory is short.

ANYONE MAY PARTICIPATE IN THIS WORD FIND CHALLENGE SO GET ON THE BAND WAGON WITH US AND KEEP THOSE MINDS SHARP AND BRAINS WORKING.

Kay, an item in your booth would be the way to go.
Easy then for it to be pictured on the prize list. TYVM in advance.

My personal challenge this week is … trying to use Halloween-like season words. It’s a tougher challenge than you think coming up with my goal of all5+ letter words and 500 or more of them. Believe me I am stretching my imagination.

Let’s see??? Halloween character?
Is he a pirate or a ringmaster?
I’ll use both on my list.

Kay, you can post them as a listing and title it WFC Prizes only and you can put a ridiculous price on them. Then we can collect the URL and get them posted.

Kay, yes, I poked air holes in the box, but I have a funny feeling those holes will become larger when the kittens go postal. LOL

Joyce; Yes Pirate or ringmaster OR
Fencer
Musketeer
Englishman

I couldn’t believe this morning, while working on the computer, you could hear the wind build up speed. The two huge garbage cans went flying down the driveway. Then it became a white out with snow/small hail/rain. It didn’t stick but boy it was wicked. It’s still extremely windy. The kittens thought it was safer in the garage with soft blankies to lay on.

While standing in the kitchen, I yelled out “T” “R” “E” “A” “T” “S”.
Fletcher came running into the kitchen with excitement in his voice.
Fletcher knows the word treats and the spelling. LOL

Well, back to work.

Weather here was something else, too.
It was sunny, cool and breezy when I woke.
Sun remained but wind gusted at up to 63 miles an hour.
Neighbors new trees have broken limbs but luck was with us. None of ours broke.

Thanks for the help, Bette. I didn’t have Fencer or Englishman. Englishman proper I think Will add fencer.

Spent part of today going through boxes of in-laws papers. YEAH found a $25 E bond from 1970 worth $134.37 YEAH
Also found the missing title for the 2003 Ford Windstar van in great shape sitting in the garage with a dead battery for about a year. Glad we found the title. At least we can junk it and save the insurance she’s been paying or maybe sell it…lol Buy a new battery is first thing, I guess. It is a clean vehicle. Hopefuuly we’ll find a buyer for a few hundred $$$’s

Here it is and was in good running condition and probably still is.
There was a recall on this van about 8 years ago and Ford kept it for 6 months making it better than new because of recall.

Sometimes, going through old things can bring pleasant surprises.

Not so much for me today.

This is absolutely crazy. My daughter is totally computer-illiterate. She asked me if I would sell her Beanie Babies for her. Now, we all know they aren’t worth much any more, but, I said sure.

Little did I know she had over 200 of them!!!!

All in perfect condition, tags and all.

However the sheer time to look everyone up and get a feeling for what it has sold for in the past year is very time-consuming.

After the first 50, I changed the rules of the game. She has to come over and check them out on the computer.

She has to group them, too – like the Zodiac beanies, the Easter animals and so forth so they can be offered as groups that make some sense.

Never in my very long life have I ever collected Beanies, nor do I care to learn too much about them, either.

Why do I care about the fact that there are 3 identical patriotic bears, each with a different color face! Or how many years they created graduation owls!

Does she have them all, or doesn’t she? That’s her job.

I am not going to do it. Period.

I don’t mind writing the copy and posting them, but the upfront responsibility is hers.

So there, kiddo!

Really strange weather here. There was a couple of times there were high winds along with snow. At least the snow didn’t stick. There are branches in different places, but I will worry about that tomorrow.

I finally found Dottie. I found her across the road, trying to hunt.
This whole summer, I don’t remember seeing that many chipmunks and other critters, even grasshoppers. That would of been fun for the kittens to go after.

Carolyn, I would also group them. But there are some that are more valuable.

I remember I was cleaning for a client and I found lobsters and crabs beanie babies. I put them in their bed. Next day I got a call with a questions why they had crabs in their bed. Then it dawned on her. Just laughed about it.

I thought I was going to get some stuff done here, but purchased a few things for some designs I was laying out.

Oh, yeah, I’m checking the value, too – not the amount people list them for, which often has nothing to do with reality.

Found a good site, but some are not listed, so then I have to go somewhere else to find them.

Just a lot of work.

This week’s game phrase is:

It looks like all the cats are living under the porch right now. It’s upsetting because it’s close to the road and right now, the sugar maple has been loosing it’s leaves. The sound of the leaves against the road has the kittens running into the road carefree.

Cold and slightly windy and frost on the grass this morning. I don’t want to think of what winter will bring.

There are so many soybean and corn fields that haven’t been harvested. It’s been wet for such a long time and the farmers are waiting for the crop to have some drying out time and the ground to hard before harvesting. I am surprise the soybeans weren’t harvested a few weeks ago since they have been ready.
Of course, I have been harvesting corn from the back field and storing it for winter. The bunnies and birds will like it. I salted a few places with corn for the mice to come out for the cats.

Finally, a couple of sales.
I need to get some sewing done. I have some items cut and trims and such pulled. When I was using the sewing machine, the boys were on everything trying to what was the noise and if they could help me.

Good

I gotta share my Beanie Baby story.
“Way back before Beanie Babies became the big thing the gift shop in the hospital where my sister was a nurse started selling them. She found them too cute NOT to buy several. Don’t you know it was shortly after her purchase of Flutter the butterfly that she saw people searching out that beanie baby and paying big $$$ for it. Long story short she sold that Flutter Butterfly for $1200….that is twelve hundred $ That was the most she ever got but others sold for nearly a thousand dollars a few times……those were the days.”
Here is Flutter
I do see a site that would give $15 for Flutter today.
http://www.sell2bbnovelties.com/product/bb_flutter3rd_nt.html
They offer various prices depending on condition, tags etc AND depending on which Beanie Baby you are selling. The earlier pieces worth more than recent manufacture.

My exercise is nearing the 500 word count of all Halloween related words.

I’ve been doing a lot of research on Beanie Babies, and it’s really quite an interesting back story.

I did not know that the creators name was actually Ty Warner. He was a nasty, money-grabbing mean old son of a gun, too.

On another note, my daughter told me she had an odd problem with a car she sold several months ago. Seems the guy never changed the registration to his name, and she kept getting speeding tickets for him. Finally got it straightened out.

For some reason, this reminded me of a family story.

Several years ago, my brother, who has a quirky sense of humor, applied for and got, license plates that read simply, “NONE”

He thought that was funny…..until he began getting tickets from police agencies all over the country.

Seems that there are people who drive their cars unlicensed, and – at least at that time – the police officer would fill in the ticket writing NONE, in the place where it asked for a license number.

Okay. However, computers all over the country, decided that was the actual license plate number of am automobile owned by a person – my brother.

He had a devil of a time getting that straightened out – took a couple of years, actually.

My daughter thought it was funny. I had, myself. My brother did NOT think it was at all funny.

Nowadays, you can’t get a license plate that says, simply, “NONE.” Computers have no sense of humor. My brother learned that the hard way……….

Yesterday wasn’t too bad of a day.
Worked cleaning the back corner of the yard.
I was also at the neighbors farm and worked on dismantling some items for scrap metal. Filled up the truck and one load done. There’s a rider lawnmower and a rotor tiller to still take apart. Maybe Friday, I will work on this. I also have an old tiller that needs to be scrapped. I was going to keep the tines for ? project – maybe a lawn ornament.

Last night the neighbor stopped by and dropped off items. We talked about the items I am scrapping and then Alfalfa came out of the garage (he was in the garage for night time) and met the neighbor. Well, this morning when I fed the kittens, Alfalfa was in the garage. SO, I know he knows how to get back into the garage. I feel better about that for those colder nights to come.

I was up early and went to the laundramat. Almost a full moon and I drove, the road lead right into the moon. Just a wonderful early morning drive.
Washed a load of doilies for my upcycling project.

Stopping in to say Hi! Still studying. A bunch of chapter assignments were just posted that are due tomorrow at 8 am. (which means due tonight) and the last eleven chapter quizzes are due Friday morning (Thursday night). It would be so much nicer if the instructors would post assignments in a timely manner. Only 400 more pages to study in the textbook.

Carolyn, memories are part of what keeps us all going.
Good memories are the best stories.
Bad memories are those most of us simply forget.

Bette, that nearly full moon shines on us all and I love it
especially where we are now with a clearer sky than back in Greentown.

Charlotte, keep on keepin’ on.
Study and soon this will be all behind you.

Word lists are due TONIGHT

Fairly nice day.
. Yesterday, Dirty Nose Ned caught a mouse and ate it in front of his siblings. (I think that is why is his chubby).
. I had Blue outside today and Dottie greeted him and a couple of the kittens. No Problems. I knew Blue is pretty even temper. If it was Fletcher, there would be growling, hissing and a fight.

Wellll what job that turned out to be! All was well and I was just getting ready to pick her up, she was sleeping, when the #&^% door bell rang, frightened her and under the bed she went! I am sure you know how long it took to get her out from under a king sized bed!

I was doing some nosing around, looking at our list of “Participants and Donors.”

Several of them have no presence on Bonanza anymore:

Bookrush
Kathy’s Creations
Love Crafting
Masonic Treasures
rbee (deceased)
Rek’s Place
Sidewing Creations
Vintage Specialties
Ziggy Zool

They aren’t here at all on Bonanza. Question: is it time to prune our list? I know we’ve done it from time to time in the past.

Do we actually have a policy?
