    Thanks for posting, Peggy! Don't know how I missed it! I think Jeanne is having computer problems, so it might be a while before we hear from her, and Nicole emailed me that she was going to re-send Jeanne's card. SOOO.. I think we can count this swap OVER! I just wanted to say Thank You to everyone who played this month. I know you all have busy lives and it pleases me that you take time out for our swaps, Thank you! Shirley! Just got done feeding the neighbor's cats, who hid from me, and what's up with that? They know me. Did I say something last time? Oh well, hope they found the treat and then I hope they shared!

    Margo, I am thinking of you and yours...............God Bless. Mandy, I received your BINGO card. Today, is the last day to sign up to do some fun girl swapping.

The canines are rearing to go...fetch...fetch...fetch.... I will start a game tomorrow that will last through out the month. This game will be a no thinker game, so do not fret.......This game and any future games for the month of October, will only be open to FOTESSERS SWAPPING this month. ******************* And now a GIRL song by MJ and Paul McCartney...I think 1982......... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIXlNnlUpRo **************************** Happy Thursday, Annie

    Thanks everyone!!! I had no idea how horrible trying to load a GW thread with a lot of comments is from a phone - I know now. Many times people have split the long discussions to two posts and it’s time to do that now. Everyone who’s a member will have notifications to check this thread since we’ve been posting - PLEASE - don’t post here anymore - have all new discussion go to the part 2 thread that will make everyone on a phone so much happier. https://www.gardenweb.com/discussions/5812129/i-love-halloween-swap-fotess-october-part-2

    GAME 4

    GIRLS + FUN = COLLEGE FOOTBALL

    OK FUN GIRLS it is almost over. We are down to the nitty
    gritty!!

    Everyone has their points going in to week 4....BUT.... a
    few different twists for this coming Saturday.

    *You will each have the favorite (so the oddsmakers say) team
    in the game, as you did last week.

    *But this week you will get TOTAL POINTS scored in the game
    by both teams.

    *If your team wins, you get an additional 10 points. If your team loses, I will take 10 points off.....BOOOOOOOO!

    *And the kicker....hahaha....each of you will be playing one
    other person, but you each have your own game... so there will be 6 WINNERS. Each WINNER gets a Prize!!

    *You want the game to be very high scoring (both teams) AND
    want your team to WIN the game.

    ***Because Erica had less than 50 pts...she received a 10
    point bonus perk.

    WEEK 4 (Saturday, October 29)

    *Next to your name are your total points entering week 4.
    The team next to your name is your team (which is the favorite in the game they
    are playing in). You will see yourself somewhere below. In each matchup,
    whoever has the most points, when all is said and done, will win. EX If Shirley ends up having 201 pts and Jayeanne has 199 pts...Shirley Wins. And the same goes for the other 5 matchups.

    Any Q's ask.

    So here are the matchups....

    *Shirley (159 pts)...Tennessee

    PLAYS

    *Jayeanne (158 pts)... Florida

    ______________

    *Ruth (121 pts)....Louisville

    PLAYS

    *Emily (108 pts)....TCU

    _____________

    *Breanne (100 pts)....Baylor Univ

    PLAYS

    ________________

    *Faye (74 pts)....Oklahoma

    PLAYS

    *Erica (56 pts)...Michigan

    NOTE: Erica received 10 Bonus points because she was under
    50 points

    I just checked the list and I have BINGO!!!

    Updated: At first I worried about #3. I had it marked off (luscusious berries) and when I looked a few minutes ago I didn't find it on the list, but now I see it. Hooray!

    The last time I looked I needed 3 more words so I'm surprised.

    GIRLS + FUN = COLLEGE FOOTBALLAnd week 4 is now in the history books! This game is now over...and
    we have 6 winners. Congrats to Jayeanne,
    Ruth, Breanne, Nicole, Amy and Faye.

    Some interesting games yesterday....some close games and few
    little upsets. Breanne (Baylor) lost her game, while Jeanne (Washington) won her game but.....Breanne beat
    Jeanne by two little points.

    Read left to right to see how I scored.... EX Shirley.....she
    had 159 pts going in to week 4. Her team was Tennessee.....they LOST. 159 pts + losing points
    (L)+21 plus the other teams points of 24, minus 10 because Tennessee lost...for
    a total of 194 pts.

    Please check my math....***next to Winner name.

    *Shirley (159 pts)...Tennessee LOSE 159 + (L)+21 + 24 - 10 =194
    pts

    PLAYS

    ***Jayeanne (158 pts)... Florida WIN 158 + (W)24 +10 + 10 = 202pts

    188 pts

    PLAYS

    *Emily (108 pts)....TCU LOSE 108 + (L)24 + 27 - 10 =149 pts

    __________________

    ***Breanne (100 pts)....Baylor Univ LOSE 100 + (L)34 + 35 - 10 = 159 pts

    PLAYS

    *Jeanne (92 pts)....Washington WIN 92 + (W)31 + 24 + 10 =
    157 pts

    ________________

    ***Nicole (88 pts)...Penn ST WIN 88 + (W)62 + 24 + 10 = 184
    pts

    PLAYS

    *Beth (88 pts)....Clemson WIN 88 + (W)37 + 34 + 10 = 169pts

    __________________

    *Lisa (85 pts)...West
    Virginia LOSE 85 + (L)20 + 37 - 10 = 132 pts

    PLAYS

    ***Amy (83 pts)....Auburn WIN 83 +(W)40 + 29 + 10 = 162 pts

    _________________

    ***Faye (74 pts)....Oklahoma WIN 74 + (W)56 + 3 + 10 =143pts

    Good Morning/Afternoon FUN GIRLS,

    I spoke with Shirley yesterday via the telephone. She did receive her wonderful GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN package from Faye.... She will post all the FUN details after her internet is up an running.

    I just checked the tracking on Breanne's GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN package to Erica....delivery was yesterday, Oct 31. I am sure we will be hearing from Erica soon.

    Some prizes have already been sent and received....RE: Prize winners for BINGO, GIRLS + FUN = COLLEGE FOOTBALL and TWO FUN GIRLS AND A FUN GUY....I will let each of you "winners" know when they are sent out, via PM or email. Tiz easier for me to do it that way versus posting here.

    Happy Fun day!!

    Annie

  • 7 years ago

    So apparently my post from the other day thanking Breanne somehow disappeared. It was full picture and all! Let me try this again (and sorry Annie that you had to ask me via message. I promise that I wasn't slacking).

    Breanne -- Thank you so much for the super fun girly gift pack that you sent! I loved everything!

    Here's what I got in my pack: mini arugula pot, peony journal, assorted seeds (especially excited about the sunflower), nail appliques, foam pedicure thing, and some fabulous spices (Bay Leaf, Epazote, dried Cascabell peppers, and Annatto). The annatto is completely new to me. Luckily Breanne included info and recipes to go along with it. I am super thrilled to get to try this. Thanks again, Breanne, for such a fantastic fun pack!

    (Again, profuse apologies for whatever posting problem I encountered the other day).

  • 7 years ago

    Erica...no problem!! You always post when you send and receive. I figured you were out of town. When I read yesterday that the package had been delivered (I am pretty sure it said "porch")...I thought she is out of town...Oh my, I hope it does not get ripped off.

    And I have posted before and the posts have disappeared more than once....no apologies necessary.

    FUN GIRLS we are done here except for Shirley posting her GIRL FUN from Faye in the next few days.

    Thanks all for playing...

    Annie

  • 7 years ago

    yay Erica, glad it arrived safely and that you like what I put in!

    everyone put on your Cubs colors and cheer with me for game seven ...I am ready for this drought to be OVER! :)

  • 7 years ago

    And the Chicago Cubs did it! The drought is over!!

    Jeanne has posted the November Fotess swap celebrating Native Americans....do check it out.

    Hey, Everyone! My Internet is back up and running! YAY!!

    I want to thank Annie for hosting for us, for the month of October. The swap was just great, I had fun with it, as I'm sure everyone else did too.

    THANK YOU, ANNIE!

    Also wanted to thank Faye for the great package, she is so generous! I've enjoyed everything she sent! Thank you, Faye! She sent 13 packs of seeds that I am really looking forward to trying. Great job, Faye!

    Shirley...glad your back to earth...LOL! I must say we all, (most of us), survived without the internet for years and years and years ect.....Little young-ins have no idea what I am talking about when I say that!!!!

    Girls who have prizes coming...working on it, slowly but surely.....will keep you posted via email/pm.
