DW:
I then realized that I had no map and no way back and Wanda was leaving me in the dirt!!

WO:
I would at least try to have a map and compass with me so I could figure out how to get back.

DW:
That would be a very, very good idea.


Hey, Knit Wit! Does this mean that Wolf in Sheeps Clothing comes with a soundtrack?

Ok guys! At the risk of everyone rolling their eyes at the computer screen --- Oh, I don't care --- I'm still new at this and not yet jaded. :-)

Today, two WONDERFUL packages arrived!!!! And, earlier in March a fantastic package arrived along with the delivery of a box at Frank's Easter.

Tydans sent in her lovely depiction of the Pony Express and the Logbook is one of the best I have seen that reflects the stamp theme. Wonderful!

Shoafsters brought her artsy representation of Mount Rushmore to Frank's gathering and I just love it! Wonderful!

Force of Five sent a very nice sized stamp paying homage to Francis Scott Key and the Star Spangled Banner. Very well done and with a little surprise tucked inside!!! Wonderful!

Last and certainly not least the very talented Heron A Foot sent what she considered a boring stamp representing Oregon and Lewis & Clark. Let me just say that if this is what she considers boring then whatever she considers exciting would surely be more than I could stand. It might be a small stamp but it is really nicely done. Wonderful!

I can hardly stand myself!! Watching these little treasures fall into my hands from their packages is such a treat. Thanks to everyone contributing and for the last couple of carvers that were newly added in the last couple of weeks.

This is going to be a fantastic event!

Wanda introduced me to the AT.
GO to BABE, Free bird! Wanda will be there (but she will have done all the boxes then), and you can experience first hand the trail we did. There are 4 boxes we planted there and a box on either end of the trail from others (though one may be missing).

Clues updated: The Control Should Be North
Board: State: North Carolina
Apr 7, 2008 7:16pm
In brief: these clues were supposed to look like a set of orienteering control descriptions, and I've learned a lot more about those over the last few months.

The clue picture has been revised to get it closer to standard orienteering practices, and I added a link to an information page of my own.

Just thought I would share this with all the Starbucks Coffee Drinking Fiends:

Starbucks Corp. will start serving up a new “everyday” brew Tuesday, hoping the signature blend will help revive slumping sales in its crucial U.S. market.

To celebrate the launch, it will host a half-hour nationwide coffee-tasting, giving away free 8 oz. cups of Pike Place Roast — named after its first store in Seattle’s famed public market — at more than 7,000 U.S. stores beginning at 9 a.m. PDT (12 p.m. EDT).

I ran across this today while looking for a different image. Anyone looking for something fun to carve in Chapel Hill? I'm not going back through that way again so I won't be carving it, but I thought one of you might enjoy it. :)

I will point that out to Rock Star and see if she thinks she can carve it. We live in Raleigh so it is not too much of a drive. It is a very nice image. Thanks for suggesting it.

Six Secrets (coming soon) will be the last set of secrets boxes for the East Coast. 'X' says he already has plans for Seven Secrets, but that it will be on the west coast..... Too bad for you guys that really enjoy 'X's boxes on the east coast. Any comments, questions..... cries of outrage?

YES

I want a X farm box ! :O) Honest, Sean was not around when I posted about an event on the farm and was graced with semi-heart failure when X hinted that an Talley Valley Farm X box might happen! When I picked Sean up and told him - he was like a deer in headlights - DO YOU MEAN MOMMA that we would have an X BOX on our farm ? I said it could happen- his reply was:

THAT WOULD BE THE COOLEST EVER - I LOVE X

So this is my CRY of OUTRAGE and my CRY of BEGGING !!!!!

I know he will be missed so very very much by a lot of us - and I am thankful that I came down off the mountain to meet him when I had the chance ! One great guy that X is !

I am also STILL waiting to get my little fingers on 5 secrets - PLEASE !!!!

Now, you're only supposed to have five secrets for 2 weeks, at the most... but I'll tell you the truth. 'X' told me a couple days ago that one person has had it for over a month and has done nothing with it!

Yeah, 'X' is pretty cool as a dad and as a letterboxer. I think he's going to miss planting here and being recognized as much as he is now.

Now, as far as your hopes, I'll have to tell him about this thread later and maybe he'll have enough time before we leave...

The person who had Five for a little while had some health issues so she was quickly and easily forgiven. No big deal, it's been passed on again. I intend to get my filthy little hands on it just before BABE and have it there. If it all works out right, I may be able to have a little drawing to see who takes it home next. Look for me at BABE to play along. Six will be there too.

I have been away from the boards and all of AQ...
my grandpa had a bad fall in the nursing home and broke his hip several days ago. He had to wait till he was a bit more stable for surgery but then came thru surgery fine! He is an alzheimer's patient anyway but he has been even moore confused since the fall.

He is back in the nursing home and doing...well...OK.
better than I expected maybe but still not real good...

anyway...
I come to AQ tonight not because I really hyave time to sort thru all my emails but to let yall know I will be trying to catch up...

but I also sign on to night in a frantic worry...
I just found out tonight that the location for the ballgames on Friday have changed. so that means that the location for the mojo mini meet has to change. I hope that some of you can still come but her games will be at Swain County High School and the coach said today that she will get to pitch BOTH games (a rarity for high school).

I will be back to update more tomorrow...
let me know if you think you can make it!
The Little foxes... it should be closer for you than before but those of you in SC... it will be further. I hope you still come! Mojo says she has to see her "Shy-ee" (Shawn of Talley Valley).

More later
