ON FUN ~ Random Updates...


Just a few random items I wanted to share with you, the first being that Tedy has not scratched our new couch since we received it in January. He found his new bed to be far more interesting...

#1 - If you know anything about plants, vegetables, lawn care, trees, pruning, weeding or other aspects of gardening, please come by this Friday night anytime between 8:30 - 10:00 PM ET to join our live Bumble Town Chat right HERE. I need all the help I can get and would really like to have pretty garden beds this year and learn all that I can to have a thriving veggie garden next year.

#2 - We just finished our Survivor Fantasy Pool League with the reality show's finale on Sunday. Kaye, Stacy, Jenny and Julie joined Andy and I each week in trying to pick the right players to earn the most points based on certain actions or tasks that occurred during each episode. There were no prizes involved - just bragging rights. I am proud to say that I earned the most bragging rights, continuing my streak of fantasy league victories! The other Bumble finished 4th. Everyone has expressed an interest in playing again for the next season. I guess they are gluttons for punishment ;0)

#3 - Speaking of fantasy leagues, Andy and I are getting into the full swing of our Fantasy Baseball League. You may remember that I won last year in my first year of participation in this league that Andy had been playing in for several years. You may also remember that the Commissioner of the league was a big baby and didn't like being beaten by a girl on the last day. He turned psychotic and went haywire before finally paying me my winnings. This year the rest of the league branched out without him and we have been happily playing along without name calling and buffoonery. It is a little quiet, but I expect the banter will pick up as the weather heats up and things start to shape up in the standings. I'm 5th out of 9, which is a vast improvement to the last place slot I held for most of April. Andy has made a remarkable streak up the ranks into 3rd and has his sites on 2nd soon. Wish us luck!

What randomness is going on in your world these days?

Congratulations on your big win with the Survivor League! I'm impressed with your mastery of the game. :)

I'll be there for the chat. I'm not sure I'm an expert gardener or anything, but I can chat pretty well. ;)

Mary is just the person for that chat. She's all about flowers, plants and gardening.

Sounds like you two might could be fighting it out for the top spot. Though that might not be all that good for the relationship. LOL

So glad you did the Survivor Leage although it wasn't as interactive as it could have been on the CBS site. Had fun and think I could finish higher next time. Of course, I'm ususally a glutton for punishment :)
Kudos to Tedy!
