    You'd be a hit at a children's hospital.

    That's funny, I thought followers of the Masonic Order were dedicated to good fellowship.

    I wouldn't devalue a clown like that Frank.
    For claiming your MO affiliation you aren't latching on to their core values very well.

    I didn't know you had posed another puzzle to me. The only puzzle I'm working on you don't believe in.

    You didn't know I had posed a puzzle? How can you miss a picture that big? Go back and carefully look at the post. Good luck, Frank...

    One of the downfalls of a smartphone is small small pictures. I'll give it a look when I get back to my computer.

    I caught your parallel but I think you're giving yourself too much credit.

    Frank... I hope that was your attempt at a joke because the puzzle itself was quite easy. It took me longer to circle them all in paint than it did to find them. The flowers were even in there twice.

    And by the way Frank, it's "Corps" if you're going to talk about the few and the proud, do it correctly.

    Also, the parellel between you and shriners was drawn by you when themarkd said "you'd be a hit at the childrens hospital" to which you replied, "The shriners always are." Now I realize that is not a direct admission of affiliation but due to the implausible nature of anyone's ability to discern tone through writing; your sarcastic tone was overshadowed to the reader by your more common trend of gloating. Which in that respect would have been read as you telling everyone how much the kids like you, although I can't fathom why.

    Haha I don't mind him. I like giving him a hard time. He likes pushing back. Sure he's negative, but everyone has to believe in something.

    My answer " The shiners always are." was answered by you.
    Now this is baffling. You mention the implausible nature of anybody's ability to discern tone through writing, and then you state " your sarcastic tone".
    It appears you don't fit in with anybody. Of course I do sometimes love sarcasm. lol
    Now as far as the kids, I raised 5 and I was an assistant Boy Scout Master, and I worked with the kids in little league. I got along with them very well and was well respected by them.
    By the way I made up that puzzle for the kids at a local fair. You did very well.
    Good luck on the Forrest quest even though I think the loot resides in his vault. No one has disputed my logic on that with facts. I think our biggest different is age. Being 75, my logic covers a much larger field of experience. Frank...

    <img src="http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=792139"/>Never more!
    Basically it's impossible to know the tone outright. Therefore the tone is implied. Your general nature doesn't come across as sarcasm so the natural reaction is to read it as gloating.

    As far as fitting in, I'm not much of a follower. I do what I want as it suits me. I happen to take an interest in the FF story. So, I will ride it out till it's found or Forrest outright says its a fraud. I don't need to fit in, I do just fine being me.

    A good pal of mine Pat is a scout master. His boys are up for eagle. Pretty prestigious. They have a lot of woods knowledge.

    Since we're swapping about me's I did 8 years in the Marine Corps one pf those in Iraq. I'm engaged with no crib midgets yet. I have done all sorts of high altitude/snow/desert/jungle survival training. I have always had a keen eye for problem solving and puzzles. Which by the way if that was a homemade puzzle, it wasn't half bad. I bet the kids liked it. I'm also known for being brutally blunt and honest. I don't hide, and my friends and family respect that. I don't much care for things to be sugar coated. Which is most likely why we butt heads.

    But sometimes its for the best.
    Don't hate too much.

    I know what you mean. I live my own life the way I want and only answer to the man upstares and he has been good to me. I agree, I think we are both a bit bullheaded. I have fun with challenges, kind of a little spice to life.
    The cache I am going for was buried during the first WW. It is about $110,000 in $20 gold coins so you can imagine what it is worth now. The big problem is getting permission to hunt the guys 5 ac. I will be going up there as soon as the weather holds for a week. Frank...

    <img src="http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=792190"/>I guess I can put the cat back in the bag, lol I do some photographic work and exploit elements a lot.
    WWI stuff is fascinating. My prized possession is a WWI Iron Cross 1st Class. Although it's not exactly a cache, I know it is authentic because my great grandfather picked it up during combat and passed it down to my grandfather a WWII vet who passed it down to me as the only family member to enter the service after him.

    $20 dollar gold coins are very interesting. I have a large collection of old money but I doubt I have anything like that. I need to re-catalog it all pretty bad.
