LuckyCap36SQ200When I was a kid, I had “too many sisters” and thus was relegated to the eastern end of the large room in the basement, the rest of the room was occupied by a gargantuan billiard table. That was OK until friends & family came over to shoot pool until the wee hours. I made the best of it, I moved my dresser and bookshelf to what I judged to be the “property line”, but my mother or somebody would move it back against the wall while I was gone with the Schwinn.

One fun thing, there was Lucky beer, although I had no taste for it, I loved the puzzles inside the caps. Got to thinking about that, and consulted Mr. Google- Lo and behold, there are collectors. I found this awesome cap-trading site. This notation was especially touching;

On Feb. 26,2012, Skip from Kent, WA bought a Lucky cap, #36. “Easy come, easy go.” His friend who shared puzzle caps with him has died. His buddy was such a fan of the puzzles and always known to have a six-pack nearby for more puzzles to be solved. Skip wants this cap for this time of remembering.

My friend Mario passed away a while back, I can see how Skip would find some comfort in a little thing like that. But I’m getting maudlin*. Check out the complete set of Beer-cap Rebus puzzles at We are not affiliated with that site, we just like them.

* If I ever have a goth daughter, I am going to name her Maude Lynn.

I was looking at the remains of an old blog I used to have, I had posted an email I got then. I was not able to help this guy. Don’t you need a flux capacitor for that? Some people need everything handed to them on a silver platter. (email follows)


I’m a time traveler stuck here in 2003. Since nobody here seems to be able to get me what I need (safely here to me), I will have to build a simple time travel circuit to get where I need myself. I am going to need an easy to follow picture diagram for a simple time travel circut, which can be built out of (readily available) parts here in 2003. Please email me any schematics you have. I will pay good money for anything you send me I can use. Or if you have the rechargeable AMD dimensional warp generator wrist watch unit available, and are 100% certain you have a (secure) means of delivering it to me please also reply. Send a separate email to me at: (the guy’s email)

I was just looking at this handy stat chart that provides, showing what days of the month that we found geocaches. I see that over the years we avoid it in the winter; mainly because these things tend to get pretty soggy this time of year.

Looks like we will have a rare opportunity to fill in the Feb. 29 box this Wednesday.

Geo cache bingo, get your purse Edna

Now if I can figure out what to do with the little action figures, tokens, and whatnot that we have collected as “swag” per the tradition. Thinking of gluing them all to a panel and affixing it to my office wall. That would be weird but sort of cool.

Spotted this contraption when searching for the Geocache “Water Power” ( N 47° 37.874 W 120° 43.677 ) along US 2 near The Alps gift shop West of Leavenworth.

Daphne wanted to know what it was but I couldn’t say. Maybe they used to have a zip line across the river there and this was part of that?
