“Build-A-Pick Game for NovDec”

Description from RubberT aka Plucky Chick: Time for another Build-A-Pick Game! Let's try to change November (Halloween, Thanksgiving) to December (Christmas)!

OK, here are the rules. First Chickie take this pick and replace four boxes, either across, down, or diagonal. RENAME the pick Build-A-Pick NovDec #2. THE NEXT person does the same thing using Build-A-Pick NovDec #2 as a starting point, renaming it Build-A-Pick NovDec#3. If two people build a pick at the same time, we will have to name them Build-A-Pick 2A or 2B and go from there. See what we end up with at the end of the night/day!

    Is there an easier way than writing down all the stones and putting the pick up and then replacing 4 or do I have the jest of this game so far?

    I think I would open two windows so you can keep referring back to the original (or the one being worked on. Hmmm…in the second window, click on the original stones and pink flower to add it to your newly named pick. How does that sound?

    Pick the stones from the pick. Does that make sense?

    Forgot to say: This is a very pretty Pick!!! I like these stones together. :D

    What I tried to explain above worked for me and was pretty fast, but I am not sure I explained it well. Go to the pick you are trying to copy. Click on each stone within the pick, click on pink flower to add to fresh pick (create new design). Once all stones are added, open second window to the one you are copying. Go back and forth between windows until you have correct order copied in your new design. Begin building your new design! Post it with the new name/number.

    I’m not ready to absorb that much tonight but I may not be able to absorb for another day after. My new temporary crown I got Tuesday broke today. First temp took 3 1/2 hours (not instilling a lot of confidence in my new dentist), well now instead of going back Monday to have him fix what was not right Tuesday, I have to go tomorrow (Friday) Oh that sucks big time. I’m sure after the first saga everyone remembers I hate and am terrified of dentists.

    I just tryed to explain this game to my husband. He grinned and said “I’ll be praying for you, Dear.” lol

    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Oh, Faith! I went through something similar, but I don’t think mine was as bad. At least I am confident in my dentist, who I have used for over 20 years.
    My temporary crown came off twice, but I was not in pain–just really annoyed. Finally they put it on with much stronger cement that really held on tight until the permanent one arrived. I am very pleased with the permanent one, and have had no problems (over a month in place now). Just try explaining that one, especially the part about special cement for using on your tooth, to a 7 year old grand daughter. LOL You should have seen her face!

    No fun, Fluffy!!! No fun at all!!!

    Hopefully someone will pick up the challenge and you can come back and enjoy the results! If you search Fresh Pick Snapshots for Build-A-Pick or go to Picks between June 17 and June 19 and June 21, you can see how the pick changed for that game. (page 54 at the moment).

    My husbands dental ins only lets us go to certain dentists. Well when I got to Coast Dental Dr. MS. Kammer was no longer with them and I got DR MR Martin. My gosh you know you are getting old when the Dr looks like he is fresh out of high school.
    Well I am totally unable to judge age anymore. So it is like here we go again. 13 hour drive to Ohio for dentist is definitely out of the question. Doesn’t hurt just darned inconvenient. Now I know why it costs at least $1,500 without ins.

    Ok on the watch. And Plucky Chick Lima Beads maze is not such a bad place to be lost at least we can see all the beads and enjoy the company LOL

    I understand! And no matter what, there is always an adjustment to your bite, then soreness and headaches…I don’t like it one bit!

  14. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Well, I’m glad you are not hurting. My dentist had me stick the temp. back in place with denture gel to keep hot and cold off the tooth until we could get me back to the office. Hooray for Fixodent! ;)

    Uh oh! Well wish me luck everyone. I may need it with a baby boy dentist LOL

    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I actually caught myself looking at my dentist and thinking that I hope he doesn’t retire while I still need him…he already takes 3 day weekends. ;)

    Mine does, too — but he has 4 children to educate, so I figure he’ll be around for awhile! LOL

    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Sounds good to me! Isn’t it sad when you look at someone and think they are looking older…and then you realize you are older than him? LOL

    Plucky, just realized I went off to play the game and forgot to say how much I love your original BAP pick! I remember how much fun this was the last time you started us on this merry path! :D

    Plucky, great pick, and thanks for the contest! If I’m at least lucky, I’ll be #4 shortly!

    Ah, dentists – I’ve been seeing mine since just about the time he got out of dentist school! And we have the same birthday! I have to drive to Denver to see him, but it’s always worth it – how sick is that, to actually enjoy going to the dentist???

  23. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    That’s OK, Sue! Our dentist used to be our next-door neighbor! He & his wife are still close friends of ours, even though they moved to a different neighborhood a few years ago. :( Bob & I are sure we helped pay for that new house…..ROTFLOL

    Chickie Sue I lived in Colorado Springs with a girlfriend for 3 or 4 months cannot remember which. Ohhh that was eons ago. My daughter was 3 and now she is 45.
    It is beautiful out there. Went up Pikes Peak, our appartment was close to the Air Force Acadamy. Saw Santa at the North Pole. (I still believe.) Came home through Denver air port missed my first plane and almost caught the first.

    Goodness I have to go back and read above this comment. Karla took me to Garden of the Gods when I was there. Colorado Springs and Manito are neat cities. I get my checks from Current. I think they are still in Colorado Springs. Man I haven’t thought about this stuff for a long long long time.

    Oh I don’t know hubby won’t travel with me and Chelsea (big Boxer an 2 doxy)Squirt aka Buddy, and Kirby. But I would luv it. Haven’t seen my son in Ohio for 6 years. We’re going to bring him down soon,
    instead of going up.

    Fantastic pick Plucky and a great idea too!
    Wish I could play but I’m leaving in about an hour an half to set up for my show this weekend. I may be in and out a bit but for the most part I’ll be missing all the fun around here for a few days.
    :-(
    But hey! It’ll still be November! And if this ‘build a pick’ game hasn’t run itself out by then I’ll give it a shot!
    See ya chicks!! :-D

    Wow Plucky, what a FUN game, build a Pick!!!

    Faith, my sympathies to you about your temporary crown, I had to go thru that a couple/three years ago when a crown broke – let’s just say I was eating a gummy bear… :)
    So here’s to you getting your temporary fxed today, and then to a successful permanent one – ouch, I can relate to lacking dental insurance, as I last had to have my crown replaced while between jobs and w/o dental insurance –
    sure can relate also to finding professionals we deal with looking younger than us, as I just turned 50 this year… :)

  39. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Loved reading through this. I have visited Colorado Springs several times over the years. We visited the Air Force Academy, and Pikes Peak, and got to see Santa…yes, I believe too! I really enjoyed Garden of the Gods.

    I have given this some thought and have decided we all look MUCH younger that that… whatever That may be, Smart Chick!
