FIVE DOLLAR FUN FACT FRIDAY!

Contest Closed!
We have a winner!
NECKMEAT WINS WITH AN ANSWER OF $24.04
Thanks for playing Five Dollar Fun Fact Friday!


Note: Read the comment section for clues and to see what the other guesses are so you don't guess what others have guessed that are incorrect : ) And blogger comments might still be messing up! UGH!



Hey guys! First of all, if you haven't been able to comment to win the books up for grabs, I have no idea what's going on with Blogger, something whacky, that's for sure.

I know there's been a random error that some of you get that starts with a bx- because I've gotten it too when I try to comment...

Please try back to enter to win the books, and if over the weekend, you still weren't able to comment, on Monday, please email me your name and email address and I'll enter you into my excel document. (If you were one of the few to already email me about your commenting problems, please EMAIL ME AGAIN so I can get you on that list.) Thanks.

Let's see if there's a problem with this post as we go forward. Ugh, I do not want to have to change blog sites after more than 1,000 posts!

So here it is, FIVE DOLLAR FUN FACT FRIDAY and here's how it works in case you missed last week:

I'll ask a random question and all you gotta do is answer it. I'll let you have two guesses per your comment this time, and the one who gets the EXACT RIGHT ANSWER first will win a crisp five dollar bill to buy whatever you'd like -- three and a half iTunes songs, a coffee, almost a full tank of gas, a bag of chips and a pop, a five-dollar foot-long, a half a movie ticket -- the list is endless!! Hahaha. It's my way of saying thanks for reading my blog, and it's fun for me too!

So here's the question for this week:

I went to the post office again this week to mail out a birthday package for my niece. It went to Connecticut. I also mailed out three book packages to some of you winners. I also mailed out three letters of not necessarily your basic letter sized envelopes. So that was seven items total.

How much was the final post office bill? Exactly?


Bonus points but no money for guessing what songs were playing while I was standing in line! And if you follow me on Facebook, you know!

Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't make note that today marks the anniversary of the 11th month we've lived in Arizona. Wow. This is how I felt at seven months. This is how I felt a week into it. And this is when I felt like everything was crumbling.

We're OK now. We're all OK.

PeaCe uP!

Carly said...

I am guessing $20.26 & $25.19.

My husband and I always talk about someday moving to Arizona (when we retire...thirty years from now). We think it's beautiful there. Glad you are adjusting.

7 items @ $24.79
My birthday 7/24/79! (because the whole world revolves areound me! LOL)
Rhianna & P Dirty Money

CLUE TIME!

The answer has only even numbers in it. Do you consider a ZERO an even or odd number because it may include a ZERO in the answer.

The amount is less than $30 but more than $16.

Neckmeat and Dolly are correct on the music in the post office! Bonus points for you but no money!

I do mail the books media rate! : )


If you've already guessed, I will allow you another guess!

GO!


And Carly, AZ is a very beautiful place to live; we joke that we just retired way earlier than we would have! Thanks for asking how we are adjusting! : )

Happy Friday! My guesses are:

$25.04 and $24.94

The music (I DID remember seeing this on FB) was S&M and Coming Home. I used to like Rihanna but now I think she's just gross. Too bad 'cause she's really talented, but it's to the point I won't let the kids listen.

Thanks for this fun break from work..and I loved reading everyone's quirks from last post! I am a right foot twirler when I'm going to sleep! :)
