Monopoly turn EIGHT

eight? are we on turn eight? i dunno...
So... I rolled the dice earlier this evening for you, then went to type it up but our internet at work was down (it's very intermittent, and annoying) ... so I wrote it all out to do when I got home. Then, during the show, my mate text me to say he had be called in last minute to do a gig in town, and I went to see him after work. After a few drinks and much merriment, I got home, unpacked my bag, and found this weeks turn written down. Opps. sorry guys... if it makes you feel any better, my mate was AWESOME and has been asked to go back next month too :) so all in a good cause
anyway, that's a long winded way to say I'm sorry this is late :)

Next turn will be announced on Tuesday 29th August

Can we not have the deadline moved to a Sunday evening again, or have you just changed it for this turn because Monday is a bank holiday in the UK?

Yes, that's what I meant. I may have been slightly tipsy last night :) I'll change it in the original message to avoid confusion. Thanks

That is a perfectly valid excuse, in fact I personally encourage such behaviour!

given my various escapades I haven't written one up (i've barely had a couple of minutes at a time to myself in the last week, let alone a couple of hours!). I am very rarely this gregarious given my anti-social work hours so i have to take whatever opportunities to see friends I can - just happens to be a glut of em right now it seems. Sorry, but the info is all on the team pages so you can check out the releases still :)

No worries, I was just wondering. Friends and family are much more important than a game. Just take your time ;)

We had squares. We released the book "The House on Bostwick Square" on the steps of an old courthouse, located on Courthouse Square. While there, we took a tour of the courthouse, and the floor was patterened in different size squares, upon squares upon squares.

Team Boot completed the Orange set and it was no surprise that Passmaster as Dutch member volunteered for the release, since Orange is the colour of the Royal Family as well as the colour of the Dutch Football Team (Not even mentioning the national hockey teams: The ladies just won the European Championship, the men play today in the final against Germany). For this release Bally had a look on Royalty!

Love your multiple orange photos;-) Bit too far to cycle, or I'd go and hunt for it.

I have been having problems with my emails since Thursday night. I hope iiwi and Ghanescha got my message, but I am still not sure that I am back on line. Please go ahead with submitting a church release for the team. I have submitted my brown release to vekiki. I hope you received it ok vekiki :)

I am going to have to set up a new account this week and will contact my team members then - meanwhile if you need to contact me please use PMs as I still seem to be getting them through ok.

Thanks all.

Team Boot landed on the OBCZ square, just after team Canon in turn SEVEN. Although we prefered the Startrek idea ( Where no man has gone before) we had to face the fact they already opened a new OBCZ. We planned to do the same, and we will do, so you can see this as an announcement for the opening! We think the title of the book is appropiate and the day is well chosen for the event;
