Every bingo marathon I've been around (as a volunteer firefighter, bingo is our big fundraiser) has a break. So, I'm jumping in here, before you all rush the tea and treats tables.
We're winding down, folks. It's been a fun swap, and I think many of us have made at least one new friend in the process. If you're not ready to ship out on time - on or before October 1st, which is 8 days away - PLEASE let your group hostess AND your pal know. We know things happen, but we don't want anyone watching her mailbox too soon in advance.
The Google Group will remain active. Enjoy it. Share with all of us what you find as the seasons change. All of the major tea companies come out with something different each season. Your hostesses haven't decided exactly when the next swap will be, but it won't be until after the start of 2008, for certain.
Thank you for the positive feedback. We've tried to make this a swap we can enjoy, and it seems that made it work for many of you too.
Now, get some refreshments and head back before Mary calls more words!
