Scavenger Hunt Sunday - Where I Stand Edition
Where I Stood
Hey everybody meet Seven. He is the horse my son rides at his Thereapeutic Horseback Riding lesson every Saturday morning. Seven was donated to the center by a ranch here in Oklahoma. He is a trained cow horse but he has a trot that will "scramble your brains" which is not good for cowboys in the saddle all day.
I captured this at the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City during our Fall break trip in October. Notice I got myself along with Heather and Logan to the left.
I'm a geocacher, an internet based game (check out geocaching.com) where people hide containers or "caches" out and about in the world and then other people go find them using handheld GPS receivers ("GPSr"). The biggest cache I found was a footlocker in the eleavator penthouse of a New Orleans high rise office building (the owner of the building is a geocacher. He has a security guard take you up to the penthouse so you can go find it). This pictured is the smallest I've ever found. Talk about a needle in a haystack especially consider that the accuracy of a GPSr is only about 12 feet under ideal conditions. So if the hider's GPSr is off by 12 feet and the finder's is off by the same amount then you have a radius of 24 feet to check. Fun, fun, fun. I have found about 1300 of them over the years and hidden 27.
In the Cupboard
Well instead of Cupboard, how about Pantry. Above is my wife Heather at my cousin's store in Rigby, Idaho. It is The Prepared Pantry. They have all sorts of baking mixes that are great. They often have free cooking demonstrations on Saturday where they give out generous samples of the food.
I found this shadow at Powell Gardens near Kansas City Missouri back in October.
