    Well I went through my inventory of treasures tonight and discovered two items were missing! No make that three! Three items missing? Two days before the END?


    Well I knew I obtained those items. They were silly little business knick knacks from local businesses, a tattoo from a Napa auto parts store, a business card from a cell phone store, and a take out menu and magnet from Cafe' Desserte'! What happened to that stuff?

    Sabotage? Thieves?

    I hadn't moved them from my purse to the TREASURE BOX!


    Once found I carefully put them in their own zip lock bags and then a collection of zip locked items into a BIGGER zip lock bag and then into large bag categories of numbered items 10-15 in a group. Then into the Treasure Holding Box which is overflowing. The Alf phone keeps falling out. I think he needs a flea collar.

    Did I tell you I'm OCD? Yeah, well it's in full bloom, people!
    Cept now I'm just a tad paranoid.

    What if someone tries to swipe my Cancun glass?

    What if I forget the frozen pizza slice?

    Will the black cat travel well in the car?

    What if someone tries to get away with the "1067" dollar that took 5 days of searching?

    Can I hold on until Saturday?

    Will I run out of ziplock bags??

    Oh, and BTW, I got another email from my old :wink: friend Margie today. (Can't she understand how busy I am?) :wink: She's doing great. Maybe we really could be friends. That would be fun. She has a rapier wit, no doubt about it!

    Maybe I could be a personal assistant to her on one of her next movies...preferably one where she stars with George Clooney. That would work for me just fine.

    Does anyone want to see the entire list of 110 items?

    Well, I'm going to go count the items again, just to be quadruple sure.

    A girl can't be too careful. :shock:

    Well, I got there at about 10:05 this morning. There were a lot of cars there. I think there were at least 60 carloads of Cancun glasses and assorted treasure collections, plus the entourages that brought them.

    I made the mistake of waiting until later to get in line to turn in my stuff. I was still in line at 1 p.m. and getting more and more sunburned by the minute.

    When it finally came time to go through my treasures, I had several friends and co workers with me to cheer me on. One by one, the items were counted. 106 items checked out just fine. Next were the tie breaker items. Did I have them all? Yes!

    Tough part though was that 4 other people had everything. Everything. We had to go to a drawing.

    And the winner was...

    A blind young man and his mother.

    Awwwwwwwwwww, you all say. I know. I know.

    But you really can't hold it against someone like that, especially when he worked just as hard and can't even enjoy the sight of....


    Hey, though, before you cry in your Cancun glasses for me....

    I DID win a $500 gift certificate to a very nice furniture store.

    This I CAN use myself since Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch really doesn't need any furniture!

    See? So I came away a BIG winner because I did win a nice prize


    NO ONE


    NO ONE

    Had more fun than I!

    I loved every minute of it. Especially meeting you all and making frienships that will last a lot longer than $5,000 would ever last.

    So. be HAPPY for me!

    Cause I am!

    And you know there is going to be another treasure hunt in the fall.


    Thanks for your thoughts and well wishes. I TREASURE them

    AND YOU. :p
