Our favorite one that is the only one we play on is, get this, Franklin Mint one! It's not meant to be played on because it's expensive and suppose to be a collectors edition but a friend gave it to us because they said they don't play it anymore. It was a little beat up from them playing on it and I was shocked they even did that! I can't even imagine just giving that away! But since it was not in mint condition anymore, a little scratched up, velvet slightly worn, we decided it's okay to play on it too and it's really nice! Not sure it would resell for very well since it's slightly worn so why not get some use out of it! It has a drawer in it to hold the money and pieces. That book holds the property cards in it.

Here is a picture of one off the internet:

That is absolutely amazing! You are lucky to own one like it. I am a huge monopoly fan, so many cherished memories playing with my family.

I've gotten through the letters, now I have to go through more than two years' worth of e-mails. If this eventually leads to something being done, it SHOULD go in my favor. I apologize for talking in riddles, but since the law is involved, I feel like I shouldn't discuss the details.
Sounds like you are organised and taking the right approach in being slow and thorough. I hope it doesn't stress you out to much.

The big boss made a surprise visit here from the corporate office this morning. No one knows why he came all this way, but I guess we'll find out soon.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Hope his visit has a positive outcome. Take care of your hand , it sounds painful!

So an update to my Monopoly mishap lol. They will send a courier to collect the wrong one they sent me and they are resending the correct limited edition version. I just hope that it is the right one this time. Fingers crossed !

How is everyone today? I just finished doing an online supermarket shop and I noticed that they added on a Christmas Chocolates and Sweets section. There was only a few tins of the traditional chocolates bought here around christmas but it made my day !! It is creeping in slowly.....I imagine they should start with Halloween soon!

I can not believe that it is only 77 days till the start of the season! I am really excited for this weekend as it marks the start of September!

Well see you all at the Pines tonight. Have a great day! xxx
Glad they are going to get you your right Monopoly game!! Fingers crossed for you!! =}

See you tonight!!

If I was walking by and heard it, I probably would have decided to eat there just to enjoy the music.

BOOOO to the people who complained.
