There was some mewing coming from the woods/hedges earlier today when I returned home. I went to explore and one of my neighbors noticed me looking. I told him that I heard a meow. Mama cat and boys have been in my apartment technically since Monday evening. Then he heard the meow. So, for the next few minutes looking for the missing addition to her litter of kittens. The baby was on the other side of the fence. Other neighbors came out. He went to get the kitten. My other neighbor received him/her from the other side of the fence. I grabbed mommy and brought her outside to see if she accepted the baby - she did!

So, the family of cats has increased by one. They've turned the tables and taken a koalacat hostage!

aww... was it her own missing baby? Or is she taking over as mom for a stray lost kitty?

I am hoping he/she is one of hers based on the location and the age. She was hiding her babies in the hedge until the downpour on Monday. She only brought down two. First, she brought one for an hour until the second cried out for her. She raced up and got him. On Thursday, I thought I heard a meow, but wasn't sure. On Friday, the cat had an urgent meow that she only seemed to use when people were passing. There were two that were walking by as I returned to my apartment.

Greetings, Folks! I had had a few people say that they were interested in attending the mystery fundraising (and costume, if you choose) event, and I wanted to post a reminder because the deadline to get tickets is this Saturday. I can give you our address if you would like to send a check.

This event is a fundraiser for the orphan ministry with which we serve, and money brought in will go toward bringing our host child, Markuss, here to visit for a month.

Please contact me if you would like to colme out and play (or if you do not know what this is and are interested). It is going to be a super fun event!

Thank you bunches.

PA weekend

I'm driving up to Lancaster, PA to pick up our Amish friend who is going to spend some time down here with our family. When I was up there a few months ago I took her to an Amish gourd farm that is open to the public, she knew about the farm but not about the LB that is hidden inside the gourd shop.

She loved it and when we went to visit her married children she wanted me to tell them what this LBing thing was all about. :)

I hope we will be able to find a few more on this trip. My daughter has never gone with us but she is riding up with me this time and is looking forward to staying in our Amish friend's home and visiting the homes of her children.

Plus there are stores that are mainly visited by the Amish and locals that are not tourist places, there is one Amish friend who bakes pies in her home to sell at Market but the locals will go to her house to buy from her. I hope we have time to go there!!! One time when I was visiting they hooked up the horse and buggy and that is how we traveled to the bakery house.

Can you tell I'm excited about my upcoming trip? :) Shoo-fly pie

I find it incredibly cool that you have an Amish friend and have this opportunity to see inside their society like that. Have fun!

Round 2 of the Star Wars nicknames, that is.

Here we are, about to have a major zombie event, and THIS gets added to the mix.

Think Luke and Lea will become the Gravewalker twins? 8))

I planted Aiphid's Zombie Kitchen today. It's a really unique (and gruesome!) box. I've not used that Google docs thing before so let me know if that link doesn't work!

I have another one I did with WalkinOrange that is a really fun HIPS box that will be one day only (it's a gift for theseekers1108 to take home after that).

AWESOME CLUE !!!

I tried to take my visiting family to Southside Park today, but the playground is being re done, because of the recent flooding..... and was all roped off.
We ended up at the JAYCEE park up the road.

6 DAYS FROM TODAY !!!
Finally checked on some boxes

Well, it's been FOREVER since I've been out on the trail....but I finally got out today to check on some of my boxes. All of the 9 boxes I checked are part of the "All Creatures Great and Small" "series" at Salem Lake in Winston-Salem, NC. I was happy to find 7 of the boxes....but sad to find that 2 of them were seemingly gone. I was on a VERY limited time schedule - so I know the boxes are there.....I really didn't take time to check their condition - except one that was obviously totally mangled. The 2 "missing" ones have had their statuses changed. To make this "series" a little easier to decipher - I have chosen to group them into groups based on their trails. The boxes from today will be Group 1 - the group designation has been added to the clue. I have not checked the other 2 trails - so their group designations will have to wait.
All of these "All Creatures Great and Small" boxes are VERY lonely! They've really not had many visitors since our event years ago! Hope some of you North Carolinians......or anyone else who might be passing through our lovely state, will choose to walk the trails of Salem Lake to find some of these great stamps!

Ummm... I seem to recall you completely revised one of my clues since the story really wasn't particularly creatively written....

But I'm trying to get better!

Ummm. . .

only because you ASKED me to. Not because i looked at them and said, "wow, these clues are sucky and boring!" LOL. i don't usually go around rewriting clues just because, silly ;-).

And i think these new ones were really great! Whoo hoo hoo hoo!!!

I seem to recall the asking being prompted by some feedback. But in any case, I am interested in making more creative clues. My past clues are mostly just directions. I'm trying to do something different with the clues with each new box I plant now. :)

And i'm working really hard at way more creative containers, logbooks, stamps and clues. All because of the same kind of feedback. That said basically the reason my boxes didn't get 5's is because they sucked. LOL. Because they did.

. . . and MAN! maybe i don't want to be planting any more boxes. These things take a helluva lot of TIME.

~tigs (55+ hours on one box and counting -and it will probably still suck)
