There's always room for more folks to join us. If you're just stumbling upon our Birthday thread or have lurked in the past and would like to join the fun, here's how our group works. During your Birth Month, you will receive a Birthday Card from each of the other participants. And in turn, you are to mail a Birthday Card to each participant during their Birth Month. Who doesn't enjoy receiving a thoughtful Card instead of junk mail and bills? A Card and a 1st Class Stamp, it's as simple as that. Purchased and handcrafted Cards are both welcome. Come on and have some fun!!!!

March Birthday's are...
rose318 / Patti -- March 18
Goldhillal / Crystal -- March 21

Let's ask our friends to join us!

Current Birthday Club Members:
Rouxcrew / Joy -- January 15
lanakila/Lanakila -- January 22
rose318 / Patti -- March 18
Goldhillal / Crystal -- March 21
AmandaEsq / Amanda -- April 6
Crit / Patti -- May 10
Mud_Elf / Kris -- May 10
ahoogstra/Alicia -- May 17
taters55 / Linda Kay -- June 13
texaslady62 / Lori -- June 27
Goober_Fairy/Kaitlyn -- August 5
GAgirl1066 / Paula -- September 1
GardenQuail / Michelle -- October 28
Sbish5/ Shirley --- November 1
Hope43 / Twyla -- December 28

HONORARY Member - Neener -- October 9

Rather than one person hosting Birthday Club all the time, we decided to take turns. We still need a host for November, so if you can help, just let us know. It does not take much: just start a new thread for your month, and wish everyone a Happy Birthday when the time comes!

2013 Birthday Club Hosts

Famous Birthdays for 1 March are:

Born
March
1st

Justin Bieber, Kesha Sebert, Mark Gosselaar, Ron Howard.


A Pisces born on March 1 has strong views on morality yet does not confuse them with deeper, spiritual truths. Their need to understand their motivations is strong, and it defines their character. They are competitive and give their best at every opportunity, always believing that attitude, more than ability, promises success.

Hi, all.
Hey, I finally remembered to have my husband take pictures of the cards made by Lanakila that I have. One was the card Lanakila sent to me for my birthday, and the other is a crad that Lanakila sent to Neener who then sent it to me. Hopefully, we can get the pictures posted this weekend :)
Here Spring, Spring, Spring :) Good Spring! You can stay here :) it's all right... Don't let that big blustery Winter scare you away :)
Very nice spring-weather day here today. But they say it's supposed to be a bit cooler tomorrow.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Hi Michelle,
My husband and I are now working on building a bird house the swap. I have never built one before,but it fun learning. Now I am looking for things in garage sale for craft to put in my garden. I am clearing out one of my flower beds to put in citrus trees. One of my trees did well last year, so now I want to put a tangerine tree in. I have a few bulbs I need to plant too.
I really love weeding ,and building my garden from nothing. It is still a work in process. It is our little place to escape.
I hope you glads do well. Take care,
Patti

I wanted to thank everyone that sent me so many beautiful cards for my birthday. It really did make it a very special birthday for me. I love cards. I have boxes of cards I received over the years. We won't go into how many years. I will just say my little grandson can count , and has figured out I can't be the same age as his mother. LOL
I just love that beautiful non-fat cake. Linda

One from Linda Kay for a Special woman
One from Shirley with a nice surprise in there.
So Nice! Thanks.

Makes me feel a little brighter. I have a cold-first one in 10 years, so I shouldn't complain. But I'm going to anyhow! Waiting for a call from Dr. about when I can see him today.

Resting for more than a few minutes is really hard for me. I am the daughter of a farmer and learned to just press on, and sometimes by the end of the day it is all I can do to fix us a bite to eat. I was down most of yesterday. Just went outside a couple of times to lift my spirits, except for Dr. visit.

Crystal, sorry I missed your birthday! Been transitioning from one computer to another this past week. Finally have my Dave's Garden stuff up and running on the new one :)
Crystal, since you've been sick over your birthday, I'm sending you Happy Birthday wishes for a special celebration after you're feeling better again :) Hoping you'll be better soon!
Looks like we haven't heard from Amanda in quite some time. She would be our next birtday gal, if she's still participating. Now that I have the new computer up and working, I'll send her a dmail to see if she plans to participate in birthday club this year. Will let you all know what I find out.
Take care everyone!

Good news: Amanda would still like to be in birthday club :) so get those birthday cards ready! She'll stop by later this week after her midterms. From what she dmailed, last year was not a good year for her. Hoping this year will be a much better year!
Have a great day, everyone!

HELLO!

Gosh I'm not a good birthday club member, and when Michelle sent me an email recently to ask if I were still in I said "yes" determined to make up for my bad performance last year.

But I just realized today that she was probably asking because my dang birthday is coming! And I didn't realize it was coming!

And I don't think it's fair for me to jump in like that. Feels bad, like cutting the line.

Since we're all friends here I'll come out and tell what I told Michelle - it's not an excuse, but it's kind of something that I need to work on getting better at. My mom (God rest her) was very demanding and had all kinds of weird rules that you didn't know existed until you broke them. She once told me, for her birthday, that if I couldn't send the card on time I shouldn't send it at all.

I know it's just something I have to get over, but I screwed up birthday club last year for a variety of reasons and I have been plotting just to send everyone (outside of birthday club) the cards that I bought last year, if only I could find them.

Ack. I'm so lame.

Feel lame jumping in here too, just blurting it out after being gone so long. But PUH LEEZZEEE!!!

Don't send me cards. ha ha hah a...

No fair.

And, like I said in my email (or meant to if I didn't), think of it as a fresh start :) And, if you find those wayward cards, you can always send us an extra surprise! Hope your midterms are going well!

Ho Ho Ho.

I can see you are all surprised and don't know what to say to my plea.

That's okay - I get that a lot. Since I've been absent I apologize again for being absent. I'm trying to complete a master's degree in Natural Resources so I can get my "dream job" one day soon. It's encouraging to be almost finished with the last course I need to graduate. It is also the most difficult, a forestry finance course where I have to learn discounted cash flows, net present value, gains, losses, returns, etc. on green matter like trees, pine needles, forage, etc.

I tend to stay away from DG when I'm in the thick of it since I could easily spend all day looking at trade lists and such. I do love it here. Its' my favorite place on the web.

We've got the promise of spring here, though we're still having overnight lows in the high 20s everynight. It's supposed to reach 60 today so I'm going out to pull some weeds while they're still sort of dormant.

Hope everyone else has a blessed Friday and a wonderful Easter weekend.

I am going to drop out of the birthday club. I have been involved with it for years and I am finding that the farm is taking more and more of my time. Add to that the fact that I have been struggling with a shoulder injury for a while and now possibly will be facing surgery and rehab. Hope to see y'all on other threads, thanks for making birthdays fun again.
