Wow. I never had that many tooth fairies. Does Kyd know how to build a bomb now? If so, just let me know where she hangs out so I know where not to cache. Too bad there wasn't a Tooth Caching fairy back then. I bet that would have yielded some good booty. Cindy J.

That would have been Ok had there not still been teeth to trade for. Somehow, after the first 10 teeth or so, the thrill is gone. It got to the point that no one, including the Kyd would remember to put the tooth under the pillow, but when she finally WOULD remember then by golly "someone" had better show up. We decided the longer she waited, the lower ranking fairy would show up. Tooth Larry came after the Tooth Fairy, but if she messed around long enough she'd wind up with Tooth Fred. Tooth Fred was best known for leaving her her own money and not trying to hide it. Her favorite though was a small Ziploc baggie of what turned out to be "Things Useful in the Making a Small Bomb" -- a variety of batteries, a couple of pennies, a rubberband and paper clip, chewing gum in foil wrapper, and a couple of shelled pecans. That was during an especially "lean" evening for the panicked Tooth Fred. All things tooth stopped shortly after that. The rumors were that Tooth Ed was the next in line and we figured that could be nothing BUT ugly. I suppose we should return to talking about food now huh?

Ya just better hope that it isn't the Good Fairy's day off! If it is her day off ya may get the tooth fairy and she can be a real hag, and even worse THE SANDMAN may come to visit you and then you won't be able to cache for weeks due to your being in a deep coma! So use caution and follow the rules.

In order to pick up and/or possess a rock you must first make your "Picking Up Rock Declaration" in writing 10 days before your intention of picking up said rock. If your rock interest changes, then you are allowed two (2) "Rock Declaration Amendments" at which time (both times) all of those around you living in glass houses must be made aware of your now-amended rock intention. If these conditions are not met, then along comes the Good Fairy and turns you into a goon. Stay home. Do not step outdoors. This group is here to EAT.

Did I rustle some feathers here? You will all be happy to know that I'm not the jail type so I have returned the feather to the woods. Not the same woods I took it from as that was too far to drive, but it has been place amoung some happy trees. I didn't realize that so many birds' feathers were protected. I wonder if it's still safe to pick up rocks. On a serious note: thank you all for letting me know this is an issue as I would have take this feather home via the airport never knowing that there was a problem with having a feather in my possession. So, thanks for keeping me out of jail, a federal conviction off my record, and a loss of money I can spend buying photos of feathers legally from somewhere else. PS: I assume I can leagally buy photos of feathers right? Cindy J.

If you possess a feather from one, now matter how that feather was obtained (Red Tailed-Hawks for example, will pick up dead rats and snakes off the road, and are frequently hit by cars) the government assumes you killed the bird for the feathers. Only those Native Americans that can prove they practice a traditional tribal religion and those people having the Federal license to handle these birds are exempt (I have a permission under this law to handle raptors when I am volunteering at the World Bird Sanctuary. This license does not transfer when I'm working at the Zoo) So, unless you are positive the feather is from a turkey, the safe bet is to leave the feather where you found it. -Thystle Never miss a thing.
