Here I was this evening in bed (fighting a flu) when my husband comes in with the phone.  I heard him say "Hold on a minute, I think she'll want to take this call".  I am thinking, "NOT!" But right before my husband hands me the phone he says its paperback swap. "What?!" I'm thinking.  Sure enough its Richard Pickering (founder of pbs) and he tells me I've made the 10 millioneth trade !  What are the odds to that!   I'm to send the book to him in the mail this week so he can keep it (he of course is getting me another copy of the book).  Thought this was exciting that pbs is now over 10 million trades and I get to be part of pbs "history" :0)   Just thought I'd share because I'm practically bursting at the seams to do so LOL

Rats, I knew I shouldn't have let you cut in front of me at the post office the other day... (snaps fingers dramatically)

J/K of course:-) Congrats to you! And  also to everyone who helps make this such a great site. And a big thanks to the wonderful people on the PBS team who work hard for all of us.

(Now, it would have been REALLY cool, Jeannette, if they could have had balloons & confetti drop from your ceiling!)

Hey everyone,

Thanks for all the replies, good wishes, and laughs.  smiley   The milestone book is (drumroll here)

The ABC's of Handling Money God's Way.

This is actually a kids book and I had ordered it for my church library.  Being a member of pbs is a great example of being frugal LOL.

Thanks everyone again and thanks pbs for having such a wonderful and addicting site.smiley
