OK, not sure if the poll is going to show up or not, Sisters,,,

but we're not THAT huge a group that I can't add the votes up,,,,,

we are voting on:

1 bear or 2 bears, please tell me your vote!!!!

The advantage of 2 bears is that the wait would be shorter,,,,

The advantage of 1 bear is that we'd all be on the same "page" so to speak,,,,,,but some of you would be waiting monthssssss for the bear,,,

Your choice, majority rules!!!!

So please VOTE if you're in this group!

Thanks, Holly

Hello Everyone! I voted too and bookmarked this link in my favorites for future use. I will also keep checking the blog to see where the bears are located. HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

I am not really good at figuring out blogs and all this tech stuff......so keep asking the questions you are helping me learn this stuff. I can not even think of what to ask! LOL

Sisters,,,,

I have adopted our bears!!!!!!!

Now let me tell you that there MUST BE a shortage of bears needing adoption, because I went to several stores LOOKING to adopt bears and finding very very little,,,,,

I wanted bears small enough to fit in padded envelopes or 2 day priority envelopes,,,I didn't want people to have to spend large amounts of money to mail them,,,,,or risk sending them UPS ground (which takes FOREVER) because they were large,,,,

i wanted the beanie baby type,,,,,

Oh, I found turtles and flamingos and SNAILS,,,,but bears?? NOPE!!!

I FINALLY located some bears last night at about 8pm!!! however,,,,,,,,,

um,,,,,,we're adopting multi-culturally!!!!!!

yep, that's right,,,,,But I know this group is very multi-cultural, and would be fine with it,,,,

sooooooooo,,,,,,,,,,,,

We have one Chinese Bear (Panda) and one Australian Bear (Koala)!!!!

Yes Maams! We are now Multi-Cultural,,,,,,if we weren't already

I will post pics in the afternoon today when I have my son to help me (MY puter is broken and I don't know how to download on HIS puter!) And then maybe paula can help us download to the Blog!!!

Now we have to think about names!!!!!

BEAR LIST ORDER:

OK, To be as FAIR as absolutely possible (and this is NOT as easy as it sounds!!!) I have gone back through every PM I received and every post in the original thread and counted from the VERY FIRST INTEREST that you had. I've done it this way because I may have RESPONDED FIRST to posts that I got AFTER others. Therefore, the only fair way seems to be to document the TIME which you PM'd or posted your wish to be included in the Travelling Bear.

SOOOOOOO,,,,The list goes as follows,,,

1.CommaHolly (because I have both bears right now, LOL)

2. NAF 4/5 1104pm

3. Scatter 4/6 302am

4. tmgarren 425am

5. Raquellie 432am

6. Kitswpa 514am

7. Crafty Sprinkles 538am

8. Piratefan21 5:39am

9. MotherGoose 549am

10. Provinca 627am

11. .~*~Kathie~*~ 755am

12. Mommy2Four 828am

13. Melissadam 851am

14. Eltringham 953am

15. CraftyCindy 222pm

16. DawnInAz 620pm

17. GelidyGelato 644pm

The others on the list have chosen to have their bear at a SPECIFIC TIME, and have, in essence, given UP their RIGHTFUL PLACE in lieu of a SPECIFIC place on the schedule,,,,

They are:

Flightobl (June 16-29)
Ladybing Tammy (June 27-July 4) thank goodness for 2 bears!!
Fargomutt (Aug 26-???) Please advise on date Fargo!!
2MiniSchnauzers (Sep 19-26)
Janaquins (Nov 5-19)

The next step, obviously, is to split up this ONE group into two, but I will do that fairly, evenly splitting the list, and keeping the highest on the list AS the highest on the list,,,

sooooooo I will be mailing NAF a bear and keeping one for myself for 2 weeks,,,,

NAF, I will need your address and name, hon. as you are first on the list for the OTHER bear.

I will be posting BOTH LISTS on the blog once I have it right, working in those who wanted the bears on specific days,,,,

whew, this isnt as easy as it sounds, so bear with me

Hi Raquel!!!!!1 Thankyou!!! I really didn't realize how tough it would be to make sure that I was fair I got so many responses, and went back and forth with some, so that the LAST TIME posted wasn't necessarily the time they ASKED,,,,

OY, what a mess! It's taken DAYS to work this out,,,,finally I just listed everyone and the time and made a list from the times,,,,,sheesh

Too funny! You're doing an awesome job, Holly. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you out in any way.

Can't wait to get either bear at whatever time! I hope they like sports, because my girls are either always on the soccer field or the softball field -- until the summer time - then they're always in the pool! I think the bears will most likely miss the sports season, but I'm sure they'll enjoy my pool and the backyard barbeques we have. We also always have Friday Margarita Night during the summer, and I'm sure they'll enjoy that.

LOL but we will treat them as if they were bears! Not so sure they are going to be happy to do the activities I had planned for them! Welcome to our Panda and Koala! Which is Bellie and which will be Brad? Thanks so much for doing all that work shopping!

Anna I want to be a bear and come to your house on a Friday for Margarita Night! LOL
