Aw! Thanks to everyone! I've been down and out with a cold and bronchitis, but looking forward to my princess weekend away starting tonight after work. Headed to Mass and hoping to make it to the Pi Day event.

I just sat down to log some finds and realized that I never listed the plants that were at Letterboxer's Christmas 2018. They are called Winter color:

Thank you to all the admins, owners, and masterminds behind the Meet Aunt Agatha event in Brunswick. It was fun - and hurt my brain sometimes - but still, fun! ;) You all are surely the hostess(es) with the mostest.

I second this! Bravo! I might work on the clues that I missed today just so I can enjoy a good puzzle! I really enjoyed every moment of it! Thank you all!
Unknown stamps: AA Library Event

Whew! Got most of my stamps logged, but not sure what a few are:

One is two chickens (?) on a branch

And then my only other question is what are the paddle holding dudes that showed up randomly in boxes here and there? I have four of those.

This truly was a fabulous day. Libraries are my happy place so there was that. But it could have been held in a hovel and it still would have been a barrel of fun. The clues were the right level of challenging--you had to work at some of them but not to the point of frustration. The carvings were, not unexpectedly, amazingly intricate and/or charming. Lots of black for those of us who like to "stamp and run", but plenty of color to brighten up our logbooks.

Team Mudcup are really the consummate hosts. I haven't been attending as many events as I used to and this one will spoil me for events to come. Really, really fun and I only wish I had been less focussed on solving and maybe spent a little more time meeting people. But that's always the trade off.

Thanks thanks thanks.

The two birds on a branch with the goofy looks on their faces are guinea hens. If you have any experience with them, they are rather dumb, hence the name of the stamp - Huh?

and the last of it says this: 'Black ink makes the best image of this stamp, and for heavens sake, use a capable ink pad, not that nearly dead, dried up old thing you keep for emergencies. Treat yourself, and thanks for playing!' and you know the planter is talking about you. Time to go shopping.

I had figured out they were part of that series, I just have no idea which one since I didn't write any info down for them and it's the only one I have. Some day I'll learn ...

Hello! Planning a summer road trip to Acadia and looking for suggestions of your favorite trail, box and maybe the best restaurant in Bar Harbor. We will be staying at Hadley Point, are there boxes in walking distance?

Thanks so much for suggestions.

Two Cats absolutely. It is quaint, has outside tales if you want and a letterbox inside if you want that too. Maybe a bit of a wait depending what time you go but it has always been worth if for us.
