what I do to null that craziness feeling. I have a goal to pay off Fatima and finish all that construction business. So i stock up on Parrots, then go to the flower shop. Do as many as I need to buy the next drill or whatever. Cash it in and buy said item for our needy greedy Ms Issa. So it breaks the craziness. One can go manic doing this very straight thru easily, over and over again, I couldn't do it. So for me this works. I kinda like this event so far. Easy peazy and finish that dratted AES compound!!!
She has about 5 needy dramas per building it seems like.

I'm spending tons of time playing with turtles, flowers, junk yards, books in the library, trips to the restaurant, looking for leprechauns, climbing fire trucks and poles.... breaks up the monotony a little, and I still get plenty of gold. With 63 pizzas, 54 lasagnas, and a ton of other food and keepsakes from the slot machines, doesn't take long!

Oh my I couldn't do one more Turtle! So i broke down and paid my granddaughter $5 and let her at it. She was at it a while then came to me and said granpa can you take me to Walmart. So i asked , how many times did you do my turtle. she replied well i got tired at 76! OMG i got sick! i tortured that lil girl! So that dang turtle done cost me $70 at Walmart as I felt so bad she wanted some Barbie houseamagig beach contraption thing (that i'll also have to assemble). So i got it. I know once her mother my daughter finds out Im going to be in a heap of trouble as I've been warned about the spoiling business! Lord and I'll get an eye roll and a tisk tisk from the wife to boot.. Dang that ISSA, and her quests! its all her fault!

Oh...humm maybe she could do the flower shop 76 times?? nah that be too cruel...

Imay, we are collecting pieces for the spring collection to earn gold bars. There is no quest, anyone can do it! Read all about it in the Spring Fling 2015 thread.

Basically, you need to collect a 5 stuffed animals, a bear, a squirrel, a mouse, fish, and a parrot. You can get the first 4 from the flower shop in Wyoming. You get the parrot by assembling the turtle mini game in the toy shop in Dinhammer alley. It takes 1 hammer to play. You can do this as many times as you like until the spring event is over in 5 days.

Please - don't mention the Turtle! - I have done it so many times I dream about it! Once this spring thing is over I will not go near it again for a while and will spend ages auctioning off the red pens! In fairness to the turtle I am almost up to 2000 gold - mainly because of plushies and the turtle - so once I hit the 2000 mark I will do anything other than flower shop and turtle!

Well, the event is over and I have to say I am relieved but a little sad that such easy gold farming is done for another year.

I turned in 1000 plush collections. I spent on average 3 1/2 hours a day, or 35 hours during the event. I feel like that time was fairly productive:

-10,000 gold bars
-$3.8 million coins
-450,000 XP
-watched 45 episodes of Burn Notice
-pedaled 525 miles at my desk cycle
-burned 3500 calories


Whew!

Good godly moo! 1000 plushie collection and turtle rotations! OMG.. .and I thought I was manic with 586! YOU GO GIRL!!! Only thing I burnt through was the last wisps of gray hair I had left before this whole thing started. I had to make a mad dash to Ayleens porcelain shop as I went through 487 hammers and had run out of red rollers at then end of the push! I saw my whole life flash before my eyes on that run!

(I thought, that's enough, by the way....)
