Good Morning, 'Piners.

Ah!
Indeed!
Open house day at the old S.P.
Last one in April.

But first, this:
Days to the Season: 203
Days to Christmas Day: 245
Well, just look.
Day after tomorrow -- the 1/3 Christmas Day Milestone arrives.
Then, the 200-day Season Window.
Almost double-milestone time!

And.....I'll miss the second one!

Yes, it's the first cottage preparation weekend of the pending rental season and I'll need a countdown volunteer for this Saturday's and Sunday's posts.
Not much pay (in fact, nothing) but a chance to participate in history!
An opportunity for one of our volunteers to post for the 200-day Season Window on Saturday.
(Who will it be??)

Warmer weather expected for today and our high could reach close to 80.
We are at 50 right now.

You have a Wonderful Wednesday, Everyone!
(Carl and crew are waiting for you.)

Have a good night everyone!!!

Rain moving in tonight and about supposed to be about a 20 degree swing in weather, so it's going to be colder tomorrow...

So, I've been looking at the Hallmark Ornament Dreambook....I'm stoked about this year...even more so than in the past....what's yall thoughts?

Speaking of collections, my mother is going to let me have our Department 56 North Pole Collection.....when i say ours, I mean that I have bought her about 50 of her 125 houses....thinking about building a prop that will store them....anyone else have something built for their houses??? I'm looking for ideas...
what an awesome gift from ur Mom! jackpot!

Snowflake...Hope the wee dog was catch and is safe. i wood have been worried to about it getting hit with a car. and i might of had a few picked words for the hubby. cant figure why it did not come for a treat maybe just cause it was scared or does not know what a treat is. Sometimes when a dog gets out it will run round the place for long enough.
I'm not sure, my friend. I will keep an eye out for him today, especially when I take Har for her morning walk. Please keep him in your prayers. xx

Good morning everyone! and I noticed @crown's post their weather is basically the same as ours and they are in NC which is way north of me in very southern Ga. I know NC has beaches,piedmont,and then western NC has tons of mountains that get about 90 inches of snow each year...I just noticed it's such a diverse state! hehe...just an observation..

I just got caught up at work and am about to eat Breakfast at the Burger King on base just down the sidewalk here..I love their breakfast menu.. the weather here is 53F right now it feels so good,but the high it going to be 84F so it's warming up during the days..I wonder when we will hit 90F! Otherwise it's a pretty good morning...the weekend is now in sight and we are so close to the 200 day mark to the season! We are making progress folks! Well I better go eat...have a great morning everyone!!

Grey, humid and rainy here today. I can't believe we are almost in May!
Have a great day everyone.
Good morning!!

Just like gabulldawg said, you just hit multi button at bottom of each post you want to quote. And when you're all set, click post reply & they should all be in there

Good luck!

Only exception is that I haven't found a way to do that from my iPhone on Tapatalk..

Hope you have a wonderful day, Festive Spitit!!

Hey Shelliegirl!!!
ok, coupons are printed in a paper circular. many, many manufacturers have "instant rebate" on products they offer. most are food & personal care products. They are in our Sunday papers. I buy about 10 papers per Sunday for the coupon inserts, cut them all out, keep them in a notebook w/ baseball card holders, match the coupons w/ what the grocers have on sale each week. I do not buy much w/out coupons & sales together. when I said tripled up to $.99 that means, a manufacturer coupon is for $.75 off bread, since it's under $.99 the coupon will triple to $2.25 ($.75x3), the bread costs $2.49 on sale, I only pay $.24 for it. I am hoping to get several freebies today also.

I hope this makes sense to you. I'm not good @ explaining w/out being accompanied by illustration, lol.

love you girl, have a fabulous day!
