    Hi Dizzy Chick. This is a lovely pick. Are you coming home to Overland Park? I think you are going to the same BB patch as my boss is. She lives in Belton and said it was not far from there. Good luck and have fun!

    Thanks gals! I appreciate the nice comments! I may change one or two of the beads in this; I was amazed at how some of the green blueberries look exactly like green moonstone!

    Shannon, absolutely you can come!!! The more the merrier!

    Elaine, Lilly & Lynn – I LOVE the new photos!!!!! I’m starting to feel pressure to show my face. :P

    Itzel is a darling, Lilly!! She looks like her mommy! Tell her hello from me!

    Tara – We go to The Berry Patch near Louisburg – 223rd & State Line. Thanks for all the well wishes! It’s been good so far!

    We picked in unbelieveable heat & humidity yesterday a.m.! The whole gang from 7-9, then I stayed behind & picked till 11. I pushed the envelope a little with the heat, (I was being careful to stay hydrated!) but it really paid off! Today was much nicer, just my son & I – with temps starting in the mid 70′s & working up to 87 by the time we left. So far I’ve picked 11 gallons :D and the kids another 3!!! (Yes, I’m pretty hardcore about this! I like bb’s on my cereal or oatmeal EVERY DAY!) And my husband likes pie, and I have a list of friends that I gift with a couple quarts…

    It’s so funny with all the new photos being posted by us — I’ll come on here & think “Who’s that?” & click on the photo & it’s someone I already know!!! LOL :D Crazy Chick/Ivy has a new photo, so does Valentine Chick/Jen (Classy Chick’s sister!) & Movie Chick/Susan! So much fun! You’re next!!! ;-)

    I feel left behind too! I browsed the fresh picks & there’s so many to catch up with, and so beautiful too! Computer is cooperating now – making the most of it!

    I might be blue tomorrow, I ate quite a few while picking today! Luckily they don’t weigh you coming in & out…

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    You ARE lucky, Lori, that they don’t weigh you after you pick berries!!! LOL Remember that episode of “I Love Lucy” where Lucy stomps grapes and her feet turn purple, plus she falls down in the grapes? That’s the image I have of you, except you are blue!!! ROTFLMAO :D

    Glad there is no computer ban where you are! ;-)

    Thanks for all the nice comments, ladies! It’s such a thrill!

    Wenche – LOL, I speak typo!

    Nope, Jeanne – I get another year older tomorrow. :p

    Steph, how funny! What kind of dogs? We had a German Shepherd that liked grapes.

    Thanks so much Harriet! I shopped some, but wish I could afford more “berries”!

    Thanks, 3K!!

  35. Valentine Chick
    Valentine Chick says:

    Great pick! I love blueberry buckle coffee cake. My recipe is “berry” easy! Now I feel like “Strawberry Shortcake” with the berry lingo! We love blueberries too. We just got back from picking cherries in NY. Congrats on POD!

  36. No Photo
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Mmmmm! Sounds good! “Berry” good! Isn’t Strawberry Shortcake kind of a scratch & sniff, too?! Hmmm…

    Oh, I love fresh cherries too! We used to have a cherry tree when I was growing up – the tart kind. Made the best pies & jam with them! We have one now, but the deer rubbed it’s bark, and it isn’t thriving.

  37. Valentine Chick
    Valentine Chick says:

    Oh no! Bad deer! Yes strawberry shortcake would be a good one!

    Lori, Nice pick, The faceted Lapis looks very nice. Just ordered yesterday so I will have to wait for a while before ordering again. The whole Blueberry theme is represented well by your POD. Congratulations on being picked.

    I’m just catching up w/ all the recent Picks and came across yours as “POD”, congragulations, it’s a way gorgeous combo of blues, the lapis sure goes well w/ all the brighter ones… wishing you very happy blueberry picking, do you have favs in mind to use the yummy blueberries in??? :)

    Wishing everyone a Very happy relaxed 4th too – I’m taking off tomorrow afternoon to go visit a friend who lives up north of me in a “rural” area of the Puget sound called Whidbey island! Been missing everyone’s chats and Picks lately – the monitor on my trusty laptop decided to “be toast” the day AFTER I had turned in all my final essays for the quarter, LOL!!! However I got fortunate and finally found an affordable used laptop, whew!!! :)

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Thanks all! It was fun being “famous” for a day! Have a happy 4th, and stay safe!

    Joyce, your old laptop sure had the gift of timing, didn’t it?!? That’s some luck, having it quit after you finished!!! You must live right! :D Nice to see you back for a bit! Have fun on the island!

    Oh, and most of the bb’s get eaten on cereal! Otherwise, nothing fancy – muffins, pancakes & pies. It’s nice to have a surplus again!
