Hello to all! We sure do miss all of you! I sincerely appreciate all of
you making efforts to show TPW our Lost Pines Challenge as we are now miles
away! I'm happy to hear that you are working with a voice in the park
systems! It's a shame the same cannot be done in such beautiful areas in
the Rocky Mountains! Grrrrrrr! Caching is not as fun here - I know it's
because we miss ALL of you!!! Luckily we can still follow what everyone
does there and participate in discussion!
Take care dear ones!
You know, Bastrop SP needed a little needle house cleaning anyway,
heheheheheheh! I live for being evil! Hahahahahahahahahaha!
P.S. Perhaps we should have an offical geocaching handshake when meeting
officers in the park at sunset! <grins>
