I've learned a lot from this geocaching list but NEVER EVER EVER thought I'd 
find the total key to fulfillment. 
Apparently, "Happiness is ... a Trio of Spurtles."

Not to be confused of course with a "Sprio of Turtles"

  Being more than a wee bit Scottish I knew at once this was what I had always 
lacked in my life. Just ordered three!!

  Happiness is.........

    Yeah ..  that's it!

    Apparently "The Hunt for the Spurtle" was quite the adventure for all 
involved. So much so, they called home so the spurtle maker could speak with 
me. I was honored. I've never been singled out to be spoken to by a maker of a 
spurtle.  He said everyone was up in arms in search of the elusive spurtle. He 
said the reports were that spurtles were searched for from vendors near and far 
-- and no one even knew what it was LOL. He reported that there were rumors the 
King and the members of the  court  were  looking for "my" spurtle. 

    He wanted to know what was my spurtle-need  motivation. I told him I 
wandered on to his page from the Ren Faire page, came across the "spurtle" and 
that not only did this seem like a really fun word to say, but it appears to be 
something every household should have ;so,  I called my daughter and told her 
not to come home without the perfect spurtle.  He assured me it's happening.  
There was also talk of a "Spurtle Success Group Picture".  (I know you can't 
wait ..  can you?)

      Feel free to look for my group. Tell them, "Your wife sent us".  


      Also, could you tell them to bring me back a couple of spurtles -- I've 
decided I need these. I've tried to call them to send my daughter on a "spurtle 
hunt" but they aren't answering...   Oh ..  and could you also tell them I 
really AM cleaning the house and closet and I'm really NOT hanging out online 
all day enjoying my house and my laptop alllllllllll  to myself. 



      My husband, Tom, is rather tall and rather gray hair. The last I saw him 
he was wearing a Stihl hat, blue jean shorts and some kind of shirt. My blonde 
daughter is ten and also very tall --   especially compared to the too extra 
petite girls she's with. She is in a long skirt, vest, shirt. (and I'll assume 
no one will attempt to kidnap her based on my descriptions -- they've been 
studying survival all year and she pretty much has the "run, scream and act 
like a complete crazy person down pat!)  The other dad may be dressed up black 
pants and puffy shirt. If you see a tall, large someone wearing blue jean 
shorts who appears to be mocking a shorter dark-haired-dressed-up someone -- 
that would probably be our group.  Tom responds well to the hard apple cider.

        Went last weekend, and going next weekend. Garbed, of course! Going as 
a mundane just isn't as much fun. Its like going without a GPSr when you know 
there is a cache right in the parking lot: it just isn't done! Where are folks 
meeting? We need to meet up with another group, too.
