I've been adding information and photos to the database the past couple of months and in doing so, I have accumulated a few extra acorns in my account. In honor of Hurricane Dorian missing our Florida coastline and hopefully still remaining well offshore as he travels farther north up the coast ... I thought I'd share Acorn Acorn Acorn 's that gusty winds have blowing from my oak trees! Green Grin!

To the first 10, make that the first 20 members (who post below on this thread, I will send each of you 25 acorns. You can use them to buy raffle tickets, give them to others or stash them for later use ... whatever you choose. edited to add: For some reason, the system is only allowing me to give one acorn at a time on this page, so I'm transferring the 25 acorns via the member profile page and you will receive a system message to let you know I've sent them.

Thanks to member @Paul2032, who so generously added to my stash of "gifting acorns", Thank you Paul! πŸ‘

Let the fun begin ... and good luck to all!

Bill, I'm not sure why the post is only allowing me to give 1 acorn at a time. I'm sending the other 23 via your profile page!

I haven't quite figured out the acorns yet on the site, since I'm so new here. But it's nice of you to pass the bounty along. Very kind indeed.
