Hi all,
I was able to get caught up on bingo tonight and I have 11 words!! YAY!!

As most of you know, Mark has had a stroke. He is doing better and if you would like to read the update it is in the prayer thread. I am just on here a little bit tonight. I need to take a bath and go to bed.

BBB, I LOVE the church PCs!! A LOT!! Thanks for sending them to me!!

DM, thanks for the PC from Rockland. Such gorgeous harbor views!! You live in a beautiful place! I can see why John wanted to retire there!! I am glad you are home but I still get tickled picturing you driving home, you with your broken toe and John with his boot! You must have been a sight!!!!

Thanks to craft-e-mom for the pretty PC from Michigan! Autumn looks beautiful there and it was 102 degrees here today so autumn sounds really nice!!!!!!
I am glad Kayleen is enjoying her cards she is receiving from FC friends! I hope they make her smile!

And lastly, thank you for the PC from one of our newest members, justmeskj! The Orton plantation is really pretty. Have you been to Cape Hatteras? I love the beach!!
I havn't forgotten about sending you a PC, sweetie, but have spent nearly all my time at the hospital this past week and will be for the next couple, it looks like.........

hugs, train

Debbie basically yes that is what happens and at vertain times of the day it produces whirlpools and is fun for those who like to get in the jet boat and ride through them.

Itís worth a day trip to Saint Johnís in New Brunswick, Canada to view an extraordinary twice daily natural phenomenon called the Saint John Reversing Falls. The only one in the world, the tides cycle every 25 hours, though the tides change by an hour each day. Plan to view it both at high and low tides to experience the incredible force of nature as sea combats river. For the best view, station yourself in the parking lot of the Reversing Falls Jet Boat Tours on the bank opposite the Irving Paper Mills.

You can actually get into the action on an hour-long ride run by Reversing Falls Jet Boat Tours.


I only got 1 word over 2 days


Hugs debbie

Good to see you posting Train. Glad Mark is doing so well. Tell him we are praying and thinking of him and you. Keep us informed.

Names have been sent out for the swap. Thank you to those who have let me know you received them. Please have your swaps sent out by the end of the first week of July.
Thanks.

Day 8 Bingo Words

(#2)Rocky Mountain Parnissian...

Wing span: 1 3/4 - 2 1/2 inches (4.5 - 6.4 cm).
Identification: Antenna has alternate black and white rings. Upperside of forewing of females and most males with 2 red or yellow spots beyond the cell. In some males these spots are black.
Life history: Males patrol close to the ground for receptive females. Females lay eggs singly on almost any surface. Caterpillars feed on leaves and occasionally flowers and fruits. Hibernate as eggs.
Flight: One flight June-August.
Habitat: Open forests, meadows, grasslands.
Range: From New Mexico north along the Rocky Mountains and into southwest Alaska.

(#32)Summer Azure...

Wing span: 15/16 - 1 1/8 inches (2.4 - 2.9 cm).
Identification: Upperside of male powdery blue often with ill-defined white patch on hindwing. Female with much white scaling on both forewings and hindwings. Underside of hindwing pale gray or white with small black dots and submarginal dark zig
Life history: Caterpillars eat flowers. Chrysalids overwinter until flower late spring or summer.
Flight: One flight from June to October.
Habitat: Various habitats including stream valleys, powerline right-of-ways, gardens.
Range: Most of eastern and central United States as well as southern Canada.

(#58)Morning Cloak...

Wing span: 2 1/4 - 4 inches (5.7 - 10.1 cm).
Identification: Short projections on both wings, borders irregular. Upperside is purple-black with a wide, bright yellow border on outer margins, and a row of iridescent blue spots at the inner edge of the border.
Life history: Overwintered adults mate in the spring, the males perching in sunny openings during the afternoon to wait for receptive females. Eggs are laid in groups circling twigs of the host plant. Caterpillars live in a communal web and feed together on young leaves, then pupate and emerge as adults in June or July. After feeding briefly, the adults estivate until fall, when they re-emerge to feed and store energy for hibernation. Some adults migrate south in the fall.
Flight: Usually one flight from June-July.
Habitat: Because Mourning Cloaks roam and migrate, they are found almost anywhere that host plants occur including woods, openings, parks, and suburbs; and especially in riparian areas.
Range: All of North America south of the tundra to central Mexico; rarely in the Gulf States and peninsular Florida.

Have A Wonderful Weekend Everyone...

Hi all!
Debbie I got the MI card today. Thank you, I really like it and it even has a lighthouse on it which are my favorites!
Train, don't worry, no hurry about the card. I understand. Glad you like the one I sent you. Yes I have be to Cape Hatteras. I love the Outer Banks and it's not too far from us. I like to drive up and down out there and look at the lighthouses and the nice beach homes and daydream!
