So, we’re not throwing bedrolls in the back of the pick-up in December and heading out to search for Forrest Fenn’s hidden treasure, but we are enjoying the season.
Mr. W and his snow kitten.
We might not be decorating the the extent that my great-great-grandmother did, . . .
Hidden gems. Wait. Is that a Prussian soldier on the wall?
Merry Christmas and All the Best in the New Year!

To the man who hid a treasure chest in the Rockies:
Happy Birthday, Forrest!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years since a birthday wish for Forrest turned into an invitation to visit his place in Santa Fe. Fascinating man. Astounding collections. I treasure the memory.

Who do you relate to most? I mean, if you were to give it a go.
Reference pages 7 and 73 in ONCE UPON A WHILE for Forrest Fenn’s version of going for it.
So (our) Intrepid moved to Alaska last year. First day of my first visit, she puts us on a float plane to the island with the highest density population of bears.
I was brave. Really. (The forest ranger and guide had their fingers on the bear spray.)
The mama bear had kicked her 2-year-olds out earlier this summer.
Another day, another trip.
I think I’ll be back.
Day Two of Fennboree included the book-signing at Collected Works Bookstore on Gallisteo.
Forrest makes a deal for some Grapette.
Lunch at La Fonda.
