I liked the construct, and I liked that it took me a bit of time to really figure out what was going on. . . a bit like our narrator. I read a fair amount, and I usually am able to jump ahead a bit with a good idea of where the book is going. This book took me some time to sort out.

I also liked that it made me think about my own reactions. I tried to decide how I would react to something like what Anna did prior to heading to the house.

My only frustration was with the inclusion of Silver Tear. It seemed rather late in the story to add that character and possibly like an added obstacle which wasn't really needed.

What can I say, I was young and naive. Of course, since I'm currently hosting 3 Interactive ltc swaps all due at the same time, I guess I now qualify as old and crazy. lol

I recently created a hybrid which I placed off of the green trail in Cockaponset in Haddam/Higganum. I posted it here, and then attempted to post it on geocaching.com. Oops. Got a message that because it was in a state park, I needed to get a permit from DEEP. (Haven't we had this discussion before? I guess the geocaching folks decided to get strict...) Anyway, after going around in circles for a bit, I figured out that they only wanted things planted on marked trails, with no bushwhacking required--so I moved it. Hopefully they'll approve my new location!! One of these days I'll probably go and plant something else in the original location ;-) . Anyway, if you were planning to go check out my Year of the Dog: Athena hybrid, please be sure you have the updated clues! https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?boxId=301947

Hello my Grateful Friends!

Plans are well underway for fun times in Andover this July! The stamp trackers are listed below. We would REALLY appreciate your help and would LOVE to see your creative contributions! All stamps are needed by June 1st so we can box, plant and formulate the best clues. If you're willing, please sign up for multiple trackers!!! ;o)

"National Parks" will be one of the main series of planted carvings:
https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?trackerId=10131

"Blues Musicians" will be the other main traditional plants:
https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?trackerId=10132

The "U.S. Blues Lyrics" stamps will be used for Grateful Row boxes:
https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?trackerId=10133

We will have two night box sets - "Good Luck/Bad Luck":
Sits 'n knits has offered to carve one complete set, but we'll still need 13 stamps for night boxing on Saturday! Please sign-up here:
https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?trackerId=10135

EVERYONE who is camping should sign-up for the "Wave That Flag" series! Boxes will be planted and clued your after arrival. Please list your box as a Traditional planting and add it to this tracker:
https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?trackerId=10134

If you have any questions, just let us know. Have a Grateful Day!!! ;o)

Sounds intriguing, right? That's the theme for the next Survivor season. And when there's a new Survivor season, there's a new Survivor pool! All the info is on the tracker. No stamp carving is necessary, and everyone is welcome to join!

I'm organizing a humor themed event and I'm not a funny person! I'm a very talented gardener, cook, teacher, carver and other things... But I need help with funny series of stamps! Ideas, suggestions? Throw 'em at me!!!

Literally, I'm the person who laughs at the joke a minute later than everyone else...

"The Far Side" by Gary Larson.
I loved the desk calendars we would get at the beginning of the year with a new one of his cartoon/jokes to enjoy every day.
There have been several times that I thought how cool of an event that would be to have the stamps be Far Side images.
Anyways, just throwing it out there, probably copyright issues trying to rip the images off the WWW, but if someone saved their calendars???

A new event has been posted for a planting and finding weekend at Colorado Bend State Park! This park is located in Bend, Texas, about 1.5 hours northwest of Austin near Lampasas. We will plant on Saturday, exchange clues Saturday evening, and find on Sunday. The theme for the event is "Humor" - carve whatever makes you laugh! It's going to be a blast!

Learn more about the event at https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?eventId=4141

More details will be posted as the date gets closer.

Wish we could go. My favorite coffee mug is from there, and it just broke last night, so I need to replace it.
But, I'll be at a different state park that weekend.

Have fun!

Where are they?! I had a ring of path tags that folks had given us over the years, and they seem to be gone. I cannot find them anywhere. Phooey!

1. Would anybody like to share your path tag with us? 😁

2. Where have you had your path tags made? Have you been pleased? I am looking into ordering some for us.
