I've kind of sputtered out too, I'm afraid. I've been working, halfheartedly on a couple of last ones that really don't seem to give a rip. Mostly I'm filling orders for folks like you, Klea and JLandis.
Since a lot of people don't listen carefully the first time around, they'd probably get upset: "Who're you callin' a scumbag?" *snicker* There's an old movie (well, I guess it's old now, since it's from the late '70s) called "Scavenger Hunt." A lot of well-known TV actors had parts in it, and the idea was that they were all relatives or employees of an insanely rich old man who died and left his fortune to whoever got the most points from the items in a scavenger hunt in a set period of time. Some of the shenanigans the characters got into, trying to find things such as a toilet, live ostrich, wedding dress, suit of armor... :-D
Ohai - thank you for accepting my friend request! Yes, I have been helping out with others' collectibles. It's like a treasure hunt - a scavenger hunt in my case, since I used the last of my Cheez Coins some time ago. Can you imagine the odd looks we'd get from offline people if they overheard us say that we needed to find stuff like an Invisible-whatever? "What does it look like?" "I don't know - it's invisible!" :o)
Thanks so much for the collectibles. Understand abt the need to keep paper around for the grands on which they'll practice their art skills. I only get to see our grands once or twice per year. I needed a Nana's grandbaby fix so badly last year that by myself I took my very first flights across the country to the NW & back after a 3 week visit. :-) If you go to the weblink I gave you in an earlier post, & "page back", you'll see some of my grands' beginning artwork.
I may have told you this previously, but just in case I haven't: I didn't know if you like pics of scenery, wildlife, kids, etc. If you do, you might want to check out one of our d-i-l's blogsites. She has a great sense of humor and is a very good photog. - even doing some freelance photog & writing. (Of course, Do NOT Copy her photos without her permission.)

I'm still working on helping CFs w. their collectibles sets. I you don't mind helping me help others again, we'd appreciate it. This is a long list again, but I assure you that they (and any other extras inc. multiples) will be distributed to Forever Homes. Every time I think that I'm about to the end of CFs who need collectibles, another one or two pop up on my horizon. (For an easier/faster way to relay multiple collectibles or collectibles from the same set, see my Feb. 24th post on EchoPoint.) I have an absolutely *huge* list of needs, so I'll break the list into posts. *Any* that you can send will be used and appreciated. (Unless you desire otherwise, credit will be given to you as the original donor.) It's an A!, Picture Day, Celeb Yaris, Yarrrris, Van Halensing, Y U NO Telemarketer, Broke the Internets, Joseph Ducreux, Captain Troll, Success Kid Book, Success Kid Medal & Trophy, Scumbag Steevee, Scumbag Shuttle, Binoculars, and/or Toilet Paper (on holder). Thank you for anything you can send. I'll relay them right on.
Thanks so much -- that was sweet of you! (The sending, NOT the egg, which was revolting before traveling cross-country twice) What part of Ohio? I was born in Cincinnati and raised in Mason. I also lived in Fairfield before heading back to Cincinnati.
