October Friendship Flower Thread

Well welcome to October and the beginning of shorter days and cooler nights. The time when leaves change color and children get ready to take to the streets in costumes and fill thier bags with candy. In Canada October is also the month that we celebrate Thanksgiving. So what are your plans for this month?

Hugs Debbie

In October we are in the middle of springtime. The gardens are a delight, new growth and lovely flowers. We desperately need rain. The country is so dry. Our Village Open Day is to be next Saturday, we have stalls, a BBQ lunch, A Vintage Car Display, Afternoon Tea, etc. and it is a great (but tiring) day. Also Hemlynne's daughter, (my granddaughter) is to be married in North Queensland. I will be at a wedding paty nearer home on 4th Nov. The sun is shining and it is very warm. Happy day to all. Marj

Thanks Teresa, yes got to sleep shortly after I went back to bed sometime around 1.

I have several B'days this month too, 11th is a very dear friend Gloria use to be my back door neighbor till I moved(been friends since Oct 68), and on 16th is Suz's (she and I go off together as often as possible) and mine is 17th, 18th is a bit of a sad day for me as lost my Otto that day in '95 (Suz and I try to get together and go some where for the 3 days) and 28th is my foster daughter Stacie's day.

DeBora it turns out that mom's heart sometimes beats to fast even when she's asleep so the doctor put her on some new medince we hope that will take care of the problem as she high risk for any type of operation so we won't do none unless thats a last resort. She may also have to have her pace-maker redone as it is rihgt under the surface of her skin so that you can see and feel it otherwise it works fine. So we are take it one day at a time with mom. Thanks for asking about her though.
Nell, that is good to hear. My 4 legged baby, Jet-Bo is on meds to regulate his heartbeat and he wasn't supposed to live past a month and it has been over a year later. I am sure your mom will do well.

Hi can anyone post on the October friendship flower thread???

Buddy, we always welcome new people to post here! Jump in and join us! We'd love to hear more about you.

DebK, try not to kill our flower this time, okay? I am sorry. I just couldn't resist! lol

We had to dump our black water tank yesterday. I was telling DH about what some of you, I think it was Ellen or Felicia, about the movie RV with Robin Williams. Anyway, he starting laughing because he HAS seen it with his co-worker and friend, Dave. He said at work he is teased because he actually did what Robin Williams did in the movie. When DH moved my RV from one place to the one that I am currently at, he left a cabinet door open when he moved the slide in. Of course, the slide busted the door. He had his coworker fix it, who does wood work. DH said it was just in the movie. Those of you who saw the movie might get a laugh out of that. After DH told me that I decided that I am going to have to see the movie. lol

Well, I am enjoying what little time I have with my DH. He will leave today after the race to go back home. I am not sure, but I think the next time I see him will be when he comes to get the boys to take them to Texas to my in-laws so they can babysit while we go to the races! I cannot believe that it is almost time for us to go to the races. Well, I hope all is well with everyone.

I forgot to tell everyone that my battery got recalled on my computer. I sent off to have it sent to me. Well, my neighbor noticed that a package was on our back porch and looked "weathered." I decided to call Dell and, as usual, couldn't get through. DHL evidently delivered it and just set it on our back porch, which we NEVER use! It is of NO use now that it has been in the weather for who knows how long. I am not going to tell Dell that I even received it. I need it BEFORE my NC trip and I am going to have them send it to me ASAP to Las Cruces via us post office to my addresss here. Btw, I did get a mail box here for when I need to get mail.

Halloween of course, which is a BIG DEAL to my 3 3/4yo...
It's not always the coolest weather here in FL, but it is much nicer
It's also planning for bday's for my boys.. They have Nov bdays 7th & 17th.. So I need to start planning for 4yo & 1 yo bday parties.

I cannot wait to see the flower bloom !

I hope all of our Canadian friends enjoy planning Thanksgiving... It's such a wonderful time of year.

Thanks for the October flower pot...

I am planning a Halloween party this year at my house. It's usually a my friends house but she just moved yesterday and now has no yard. So now it will be at my house. She's going to help plan it.
Mine & my husbands birthdays are both this month. Mine is the 28th & his is the 29th. The Halloween party is actually going to end up on his birthday.
I'm also the Halloween committee in the PTO at my son's school. I'll be running the Biting for Apples game booth. We're going to hang apples from a string and the kids have to bite them, or try to. I've done this at past parties and it's hilarious!
