Halloween Bingo 2017



As promised, a quick update to announce my very first BINGO!

Darkest London came out as the first square called in October, thus netting me a nice Bingo, right down that last column, as I've illustrated with a medium-sized orange rectangle.  I hadn't really expected a Bingo yet, and whilst scrolling through the BL feed, the first square called I had seen was for 'Gothic.'  I was going to comment that, "Well, no Bingo yet," when I noted that OB mentioned it was a mistake.  Further scrolling showed that the call for October first, was, indeed something else--Darkest London.

BINGO!

Ah... how things work in life is kind of interesting.  Definitely a great way to start the month!  =D

Ahem... now I need about three more squares to be called for my next Bingo, kthx.  =P
