We've accumulated a few versions, too, as gifts and as bargains. Including two Red Sox versions and (I think) a dot-com version from quite a few years ago. Must go back and see which "properties" are still in existence, and what was Boardwalk in those days! I think we have a "deluxe" version, but not like the Franklin Mint set you have. But we've only actually played on the standard set. We don't get much of a chance to play board games. If we have a spare hour or two we tend to reach for the DVDs.

I've seen a few nice ones (small though) on ebay between GB£9-£12 each but postage was about US$22.00 ! More than the houses ! I've not seen the ones in your photo though. Anyway not to worry, I'll keep an eye out.

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
Hope you receive the correct version quickly!!! Christmas chocolates & sweets. Mmmm!

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!
OUCH!!! Hope it heals quickly!!! Hopefully the boss man is only there b/c he misses you all - &/or comes bringing good things!!! Good luck!!!



Good morning MMC! It's another HOT one in Ohio! I just turned QVC on the tv at work. I'll see how long the boys let it on b/f changing channels. Hope you are all having a great day! See you at the Pines! I'll be late getting there - we are having homemade ice cream at my brothers tonight - we are going to visit with my Aunt/Uncle who are in town from NC!!! (all are welcome)

That's what I thought when I read it! Of course there would be have been complainers there to spoil it.
