OK well here is another wonderful Troll Letterboxing story.

Yesterday morning early the Troll and I go for a walk.... I ask if I can take my letterbox stuff ... he says ..............

NO! You can do that LATER HOLLY !

So we go for a walk ...... I tell him .... I know there is one right here in this square ... he rolls his eyes like he always does ...... (so this is the first time I am at the box)

We return from our walk and off he goes across the river to the trade show..... I grab my backpack, clues and map and go box....

So I return to this square and there is NO WAY that I can get this box (visit 2) .... there are people everywhere ..... so I walk on .... box ...... come back again (visit 3) ..... NO WAY can I do this .... and it is driving me nuts .... walk over to the next square to get another box.... get it with no problem ............... BUT can't put it back .... all of a sudden there are people all over the place .... so I take it with me .....

OK so I meet up with the Troll and friends of ours ... I tell them to come with me ... I need not only COVER ... but I need them to distract anyone that might be around ... I have to get one box and put one back ....

So we walk to the first square (visit #4) and there is not a guy set up selling art RIGHT IN FRONT of where the box is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG .... I tell them I can't do this .... no way ... I can't chance it ........ The Troll walks over there with his blackberry and pretends to be looking at the plant and takes a picture .... he comes back and says I can see it Holly it is right there as he points it out on the picture.... so the 3 of them walk over to look at the guys art... to distract him while I grab the box ............ I am a nervous .... so I ease over the to spot and go to reach for the box and I hear the Troll LAUGH and say HOLLY !!!! .... I jump up and away from the spot with no box........

Well ......

While they were over there looking at the art ... The guy saw me go to the plant .... and he says to the Troll ........................................

Is she looking for that stupid plastic box ?????????????????????????

LOL

So needless to say .... I get the box because the guy knows about it .... he tells the Troll that you should see it sometimes people climb in there on their hands and knees ... for that stupid plastic box !

OK so ..... I still have to put this other one back .... so we walk to the next square and I have them crowd around me while I put the box back ................ WHEW !!! Nervous boxing .....

:O)

Needless to say the Troll thought that the comment that guy made was BEYOND priceless !

:O)

I have one more to find within walking distance .... I was gonna go this morning but I am sitting on the bed looking out the window at the bridge and the river and don't feel like getting up just yet ! :O)

Hollerin' Holly the Troll Master !

Well, of course it wouldn't. You were posting about the Troll and I doubt those GA people would understand how hilarious that is that the Troll actually went letterboxing.

You know what got me? Here's this guy selling his artwork, which may or may not be something anyone in their right mind would want ;-), and he's got the nerve to call a box containing someone else's artwork stupid????

I got a good mind to go down there and 'splain a few things to him. ;-)

OMG!! This totally reminds me . . . I was talking with Terrio of WI earlier this week. She is going to be hosting AJ Basset in March. She has a blog of another buddy she hosted - HOLLY the Moose! Holly the Moose also spent time with our very own Clown. BUT, when HOLLY the Moose was with Terrio, they visited . . . . . . wait for it . . . . . TROLL VILLAGE!!! In her blog she quotes "In this town there are a ton of Trolls all over...it is known as the troll city and there is even a main highway called "the trollway." It has trolls all along it."

Love ya Holly!

That is so cool. That would be a fun visit. LOL

I have The Smokey Mountain Troll's Cousins series in Gatlinburg. One of them is even in a Troll Store. Holly, you need to visit the Smokey Mountain Troll store. It is very close to the Event.

YEAH and a few of them actually think he is OK !!! they would never understand !

I think it was the plastic box that he was calling stupid ..... and us "nuts" who would crawl on our hands and knees into a shrub to find said box ! LORD knows what he would have thought if he saw me in that OTHER BUSH ..... Dang near took me 30 minutes to find that one .... I was in that bush FOREVER looking through the leaves in a PUBLIC PLACE CUSSIN ya !
