    Good Morning All !

    Happy Friday !

    dee… Hey from CLE.. travelling is exhausting for sure… Hope you get a good night’s sleep as you continue your travels ! Have fun… Safe travels

    moms…thanks for all your help setting up the Preakness !
    Love the horse’s name you choose.. Perfect for you !
    Did you happen to catch the finale of Grey’s Anatomy ? It was so good !

    Getting ready to head out for Columbus ! Will be so nice to have some time to chat with himself and hear about what is happening with him..
    Don’t really think he is embracing having his car…but not my place to give him a push !

    Hey to all !
    Have a good day !

    Sheba.. I usually do two rounds of the collection challenges.. after that not so much !

    Safe travels, Gaga! Is there a particular horse you are routing for?

    I have three or four favorites….so will be hard to narrow down.

    May 19, 2023 @ 10:09 am

    Well….since I have a lot to do today, I’m just going to pick!

    I’m going to route for Red Route One! Maybe not favored over some of the others to win, but there is always that surprise!

    gaga – i wondered why he wasn’t driving himself, but i didn’t know what the status was of the car & didn’t want to bring up a potentially sore subject . . . is he still not comfortable driving much???

    hope you have safe travels & good conversation

    i did watch grey’s after the basketball game in the wee hours of this morning – i thought it was good too – i was surprised & felt more of a cliff hanger with it than recent years – i didn’t expect that . . . will be interesting to see what happens

    May 19, 2023 @ 7:44 pm

    I will back #3 Mage.

    I am not getting any blueberries. Has anyone else got them? I am just wondering if it is me or are they being stingy with everyone. I keep getting the planting station which I didn’t care for the first time around. I did get blackberries on one of my two accounts.

    May 19, 2023 @ 8:24 pm

    dee – glad you’re safe

  13. 13 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    May 19, 2023 @ 8:25 pm

    topazz – i have gotten blueberries but not as many as the potting benches or antique well pumps – those are coming out of my ears!

    Hi, all!

    I will be away from PC most of the weekend. Just thought I’d let you know. Celebrating d-i-l’s birthday tomorrow.

    So don’t worry about me. Cheering on Red Route One!

    Looks like Chase the Chaos is doing well.

    I was able to spin the Deluxe wheel twice today. Not that the prizes are that great.

    Good Morning !

    moms.. was a whirlwind trip… he was packed up and ready to go when I arrived.
    We went and saw the building where he will be renting for the next year. He
    measures everything in how long it takes to ” walk ” ! He told me the car is making a ” humming ” noise on acceleration.. Need to have mechanic look at it but I don’t think it is good for a car to sit either for lengths of time. I will talk to my sister and get her involved too. She has much more influence than his “gaga” does. What do I know ! ( eyes rolling up in my head } LOL

    dee… Happy that you arrived safely to your destination ! It seems like so many people drive like they are in such a hurry to get to where they are going
    Hadn’t particularly noticed until yesterday… almost was clipped by drivers a couple of times yesterday !
    If you check in this morning pick your horse for the Preakness !

    Sheba… Enjoy your weekend celebrating your d-i-l ‘s birthday !
    New week of NEXT challenges…They almost seem to have a couple of challenges that are time intensive and spread out over days or longer.
    New flowers in Kinzville which are really cute !

    Topazz.. Have gotten some blueberry seeds but they are few and far between
    I am a little disappointed in the Wheel prizes in general this time around but I guess they can’t have great prizes every month.

    April… Hope all is well with you and Stella ! Hope you stop in and are able to choose a horse for the Preakness !

    Hope you all enjoy the day !

    supposed to downpour buckets later today/tonite

    May 20, 2023 @ 2:25 pm

    dee-How could I not remember you would be there when she was also there in concert? I imagine traffic was a nightmare. I think we are going to have to Uber when we go in Los Angeles. When I took dd at Staples, leaving was a nightmare, and now at Sofi, cannot imagine.
    Enjoy your time there!

    qos-Enjoy your time with family this weekend. My favorite reason to be away from the computer is time with friends/family.

    topazz-I have only gotten one of each, mostly getting the well pumps, so guess they are more rare to get.

    moms-Hope you are enjoying your day.

    gaga-Glad you got to see himself and catch up a bit. Interesting about the car situation, keep us posted.

    Thanks for the Preakness fun!

    I like Chaos, but going with National Treasure just to add into the mix.

  22. 22 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    May 20, 2023 @ 5:47 pm

    gaga – why didn’t you choose my backup horse??? it’s going to be the lucky one! i thought for sure qos would choose it

    the race is in 1 hour

  23. 23 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    May 20, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

    gaga – did you see the race that just ran? nagirroc was amazing

  24. 24 gagagee said,

    May 20, 2023 @ 6:16 pm

    Yes moms.. Have it on.. Saddened that a horse had to be euthanized because it was injured while acting out…

  25. 25 gagagee said,

    May 20, 2023 @ 6:23 pm

    Very quiet here on the blog today… Was hoping all of the horses would be spoken for !

    Good Morning

    I had to go back and watch the race, we were with friends yesterday and not home until late so forgot all about it. Saw Moms comment on here, and went straight to google.

    Thanks for hosting the contest, this is as close to “betting” as I get, much more fun this way. Congrats to dee and topazz!!!

    They had basketball on where we were, which I also don’t follow much, but try to pay attention in the finals. Still didn’t really watch, just enjoyed making dinner and catching up.

    Good Morning All !

    Congratulations to all of you who have kids graduating this spring ! It is such an exciting time for them and for you ! Ready for life’s next adventure.

    Today is dee’s big day day ! I am sure she will smashing in her new outfit and her dh as well.

    moms.. Thanks for all of your help with the Preakness Giveaway ! Still trying to get over the fact that they no longer sing My Maryland My Maryland… I sure am behind the times ! ( LOL )

    Sheba.. Hopefully you are having a great weekend with your family.. and the weather is cooperating.. Pretty chilly here but the sun is shining which really
    helps. NEXT’s ladybug sure is elusive ! I really don’t have time to keep logging on to look for her. Ghost is very scarce too.

    April .. Hope you and Stella are doing well. I am sure you must have heard about the passing of CLE Browns player Jim Brown ! So much hype here about his passing…I guess he was one of the best in his day.

    cmpets… Congrats on your horse !
    I was talking to my sister this morning and she was saying that if ts is doing a concert in a playoff city they lose !

    Topazz… Hope you are able to get some blueberries.. They do seem pretty few and far between.

    Hey to all !

    Enjoy the day !

    going to visit the farmer

    i haven’t gotten blueberries in days & have only gotten very few – now i’m wondering if they messed up something with them

  35. 35 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    May 21, 2023 @ 3:01 pm

    still no broccoli *sigh*

  36. 36 Topazz said,

    May 21, 2023 @ 4:31 pm

    I am so excited I won. Yeah!

    Still no blueberries. Sigh. Maybe tomorrow.

    Congrats to all the graduates!

    Gaga – Sounds like you had some close calls on your travels, but glad you came through without a scratch on your car. Nice you had time with himself. It sounds like he prefers to walk????

    Dee – Congrats to your girl! Did you dh’s outfit end up matching? Can’t remember what the outcome was on that!

    Moms – Why are you looking for broccoli? Isn’t it asparagus?

  38. 38 Queen of Sheba (WWID: Royalmajesty) said,

    May 21, 2023 @ 8:12 pm

    Thanks for the fun contest, Gaga! My choice came in 4th and I almost thought Chaos might surprise everyone! Congrats to the winners here – cmpets, Dee & Topazz!

    And btw….we drove through Baltimore on Saturday on our way to Philadelphia. All I could think about was the Preakness and how I wanted to stop and cheer on the horses! Anyway, my dil’s party was at the Phillies/Cubs game (we are all cubs fans) and our team did terrible. We discovered (via text) that some of our friends were there who are Phillies fans.

    Had a great time with family this weekend! ♥

    and thanks for the pony miss gaga

  41. 41 Queen of Sheba (WWID: Royalmajesty) said,

    May 21, 2023 @ 8:23 pm

    Oh, and I’m not crazy about the harvesting of onions in the farmer’s plot. I put all the w-shop seeds in a different field. I had to rearrange my farmer’s plot today to include the onions (on both accounts).

    Gaga – I agree about the labor intensive season challenges. Sigh! And the ladybug is maddening. I didn’t find any yesterday, but I found one today.

    Moms – I’m curious as to why you thought that I would choose Blazing Sevens! I like the red horse (Red Route One) because it reminded me of Felicity’s horse, Penny (American Girl doll). LOL! I read articles on all of the horses and watched some videos. It was hard to choose.

  42. 42 Queen of Sheba (WWID: Royalmajesty) said,

    May 21, 2023 @ 8:26 pm

    Oh, Dee! Sorry that you did not get ONE compliment! You certainly deserved one! Going through heavy traffic makes me glad that I’m not in the metropolitan cities anymore. Have a safe trip home!

  43. 43 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    May 21, 2023 @ 8:45 pm

    qos – i didn’t know you were going to be informed about the horses! i just thought you would choose it because of the 7s & that it was also post 7 – i picked the name without even looking at odds LOL

    dee – you looked so wonderful today! i’m sure dd just forgot to notice in all her excitement – hopefully she will when she sees photos

  44. 44 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    May 21, 2023 @ 8:46 pm

    i haven’t sent codes, yet – i’ll email once i finish folding these towels

    May 21, 2023 @ 9:27 pm

    okay – prizes all sent – winners – check your emails & lmk if you have any problems!!!!

    thanks again gaga for hosting – coming up with the idea, giving the prizes, etc. ♥ always appreciate your generosity!!!

  46. 46 Queen of Sheba (WWID: Royalmajesty) said,

    May 21, 2023 @ 9:40 pm

    Cool reasoning, Moms!

    As far as being informed….I love to learn so I decided to quickly educate myself.
    Also, learning from the college basketball predictions in March Madness I realized that the top contender doesn’t always come out on top, so I decided to choose someone who might have a lucky day!

  47. 47 Queen of Sheba (WWID: Royalmajesty) said,

    May 21, 2023 @ 9:41 pm

    Hey I just got some blueberry seeds!
