OMG, I just looked at the Mid America introductions, and I think I need oxygen. If I order everything I want I will have to go out of retirement and get a high paying job. Maybe a blood transfusion will be helpful??? I already have too many on my want list from Keppel. And then there are the Sutton's Intros, and I haven't even looked at Ghio's. Somebody throw me a life line. I think I am downing in my standards and sinking into my falls. Is there any hope for the likes of me??? Crying Sighing! Maybe some group counseling would help.

Tom, I don't think your going to get group counseling from this group! Unless it is to cheer you on… Hilarious!

Does that mean , with three, you get "free shipping" instead of egg roll? It can be much more tempting & pleasing to the eyes, than the wallet! Sorry, but I think I saw a website that actually gave a Warning; May be addicting...., on the Home page! Sticking tongue out

Can't help talk you off the ledge, I've set aside $700 for Mid-America alone. I suppose it's an improvement from the $1000 last year Whistling

I have as good a chance at winning the lottery as I have of refraining from buying too many irises. Rolling my eyes.

I get to order from several hybridizers for the local iris society auction, but this year have to figure in the shipping, so a couple people will help me with the math. but I have a budget, backwards & forwards--don't we have fun.

order many fewer for us--last year only bought from the club auction-plus the HIPS sale. when you get to our age one is careful.
