I know I was told where the Wipe Still Required box was found, but I'm drawing a complete blank for some reason!

Please tell me it wasn't found in the HOLE!!!!

It hasn't been located yet, but we are still searching. Dad the Muggle Fox was brave enough take a flashlight and check the "hole". I wasn't that brave, 'cause even if it was in there, I'm not going in after it!!

Of course, if it is in there, that would be the ultimate Extreme box......lol........ugh.......!!

LOL!!!!!

I think that might be a little TOO extreme!!!! EWWWW!

Hmmm...I must have dreamed that I was told about that one....weird!!! But, not that uncommon, unfortunately!

Kudos to Dad the Muggle Fox for being brave enough to check the "hole"!!! He's a braver man than I!!!! ;)

It seems that everytime I think up an idea for a letterbox...it's already been done. I'm guessing Dixie has had the same problem and is going in a new direction with this box? LOL

Next time I'm in NC....LOL

I'm not sure I understand whatya mean.
this box was planted but came up missing this weekend.

mama fox... mama wolf asked enough questions yesterday to learn that the paper roll got dropped by accident so all that was left was the small baggie of box contents and that it was laid upon a shelf with newspaper. Was it originally on the shelf or hanging in a big baggie???
Maybe it's still there but hard to see????

it was fun while it lasted...although mama wolf cheated *glaring at wolf* she was suppossed to go in and "have a seat" to get the box *shaking finger* LOL

I confess-- I made the cubs do the "dirty work"-- of course this means that I enjoyed if even more this way! MUHAHAHA!

Yep, e-mail Mama Fox last night about this. I only hope it was not picked up with the newspaper and "used". :P

isnt this one of the primo benefits of boxing with kids.. especially boys! LOL.. I can barely keep James on the trail and out of the mudpuddles most days. Cant wait til I get him fully trained and channel his energy and curiosity into something that's not so scary for mom. A week or so ago, he was headed straight for some 'fluffy pancakes' (either a dead rabbit or cat) near a side road. eewww

As for outdoor non-plumbed facilities... my great aunt up in Avery County had one up until the mid seventies... so, i've a little experience there... still though... dont know if i'd have sat either! ;-)

I sent CDQ to "do the dirty work" of getting the box, but when she almost slipped off the bridge coming back, she refused to return it. Being the wonderful mom that I am (you folks better stop laughing at me), I took the box back. But only after a Drama Queen moment of "but my life was flashing before my eyes when the mat slipped under my foot". Like it was a 30 foot drop or something. Geeezzz...

Oh, come on!! :)

I was the one that wanted to go in there and get it! Besides, we are totally city, so my kids aren't all that familiar with outhouses...I think my son might have been inside a port-a-potty ONCE when he was younger, but we avoid those things like the plague! LOL!!!!

I cheated though, I wasn't about to have a seat!!! My spirit of adventure only goes so far!!!! ;)

Oop, game's back on..be back in a minute!!!
