    We have 94 signed up now! trying to make it to 100 at least so tell your friends what fun it is. Off topic: The carpet was laid today so I can start moving in!!!! Getting help with the big furniture but my sister is coming tomorrow and we 3 old ladies are going to do the bulk, picture this 1 70 yr old cancer patient, 1 61 yr old diabetic who has had back surgery and both knees replaced and 1 58 year old COPD patient on oxygen with a bad back and fibromyalgia making this move. It's not as bad as I make it t o be as we load up the grocery carts with packed boxes and roll them down the hall into the elevator and out onto the 1st floor. Old women rock!!! We just take more breaks and do it slower lol

    Hi ladies, I have been away for a bit. Took a trip to Pa. for a week. Came home this Tuesday evening about 6 pm. Wednesday morning I was stripping my livingroom of all it's glory, all wall decor, which includes a bunch of antique/vintage wall pockets & of course pictures. Then all the whats nots on the stands, furniture out, area rug out, then pull a gazillion little nails out of walls. Then trip to Lowes for paint. Called my girl friend Cathy, who I knew would be glad to help me paint. She was here by 6 pm Wed. evening. ...she painted the ceiling. I started doing the trim. We stopped at 9 pm. She returned in the morning about 9:30 and we painted fast & fourious.... So by 8 pm Thursday night we had all painting done as well as all the area rug & furniture moved back into the livingroom ! Yes in just a little over 24 hours the room was put back together...except for those gazillion wall pockets & other wall decor. My DH stayed hidden the whole time...its one of the few things he does not like to do ..paint. So then I sat down ...looked for this months sign up ...filled out the info ..yes I'm in. Although I have a lot of other things to do, as my son is getting married on the 22 & I am expecting company to stay with us, but could not pass up the SP Swap. Maybe with all that will be going on I won't be disparing at the mail box this month....

    [QUOTE=Knitette;5478286] It's Scots - the literal translation is, 'Long may your chimney (lum) reek (smoke)'.

    In other words - 'Have a long life!'

    That is good to hear. I was taking it kind of literal, but didn't know what a LUM was. And What the heck that smell was you were wishing on us all!!!! Ha! Ha!
