  1. Greetings all,

     

    My story is about a parrot!!. She is a Red-Lored Amazon named Rico. I saw her at a bird fair in late 2000 and couldn't let her stay with the "people" who had her. When birds are stressed, they pluck their feathers. The poor little girl had her belly plucked bare. And, she has a "toe" that was broken and healed improperly.

    I was working for my vet cleaning and feeding the animals at that time. When I brought her in for a check-up, he had two questions: # 1. Where did you get her? and after I answered, #2. Can you take her back?

    I asked him how I could send that little face back to where she'd been!!

    He was sure she had been used for breeding and not treated very well. She could answer that question herself because she talks. When I first got her, she could say, "hello" and "bad bird." Now she can say, "Rico," "I love you"

    and "right back"!! When I go out, I tell her "I'll be right back"!! And, she has regrown most of her belly feathers.

    We aren't sure how old she is, but, we think she's about 25 now. She has a home with me until one of us

    crosses the Rainbow Bridge.

     

    I must say thank you to all the wonderful, caring people who have shared their stories and their love here. It is comforting and refreshing to see how many good people are in our caching community!!

    It's a shame some humans are so heartless and cruel to our fellow creatures.

     

    And, many thanks to anne.and.eli for this great cointest. The Lil' Dreamer Coins are toooo cute.

    Good luck to everyone!!!

    Safe and happy caching to all.

    P.S. Looking forward to seeing many of you at Midwest Geobash!!!!!

  2. Me thinks this isn't quite gambling, so I will allow myself to play!!!

     

    Gorgeous coin and fun cointest!!

     

    My picks are: 9,13,18,24 and 45

     

    My favorite boardgames are Monopoly and Scrabble.

    I've just been introduced to a really great Wii brain teaser game, but I don't know the name.

     

    Thanks for the cointest and good luck to everyone!!!

  3. I would love to get one of these coins.

    I live in Ohio, so I won't be able to attend the Event.

    I saw in earlier posts that they will be available on Geoswag.com.

    Will they go on sale the evening of the Event??

    Thanks for another amazing coin!!!!!!!

  4. Another fan of King Tut and Egypt here!!!!

    Went to Chicago (alone) in July '06 to see the King Tut Exhibit at the Field Museum. And, a few other Museums, too!! Great trip!!

    Would loooove to see the Pyramids!!!!

     

    About the coin: love it, me wants!!!!

    Amazing artwork- hope they can fit all the elements in and keep it looking as beautiful as the preliminary artwork.

  5. Wishing a Merry Christmas to Mike and his daughters. And, to all the generous cachers on this thread who've come together to offer their support and love for the family.

     

    And, wishing everyone Health and Happiness in the New Year...

     

    Safe and happy caching and coining to all,

  6. I'm so glad to see River Cacher recieved one of these gorgeous coins!!

     

    He so deserves the "pick-me-up" and love that's been sent his way!!

     

    Way to go Mystery Coiner!!!

     

    And, congrats to all the other recent reciepients, too!!!

  7. Dearest YASS,

     

    Thank you for sharing your special gifts with us. Sorry to hear things are not so great for you right now.

    I believe in Karma and believe you do too. You've been there for all of us with no expectations except that we do our best in all things. I believe the universe will return the favor and provide for you now.

    I will always treasure the coin you sent me. It will remain in my small collection forever and I relate the story of how it came to me every time I show it to others.

    I look forward to the time when things turn around and you return to the forums.

     

    Wishing you all the best and keeping you in my prayers... GeoCharmer81 (Kelly)

  8. Tsun, for all the newbs like me please decipher GCF in SLC!! :) And waypoint if there is one??!!

    Will you have some way for those of us who don't attend the event to be sure to get them??

    The armadillos are too cool to miss!! Thanks, Kelly

  9. WOW, 007BigD!! Don't know which was the greater feat-- that amazing cache or recieving the Devil Coin.

    Bet the Devil needed your courage to do that climb :)

    I'd love to explore the area. Not too sure if I'd be up for the climb, but with experienced climbers, I'd sure give it a go!! Congrats on the 500, too!!

  10. Finally got to reading this thread. I hope Tsun's plans to produce the coin are going forward.

    The armadillo is an amazing creature. The designs are fabulous. If there is a pre-order list, please add me . I'll watch the thread so I don't miss out. Thanks... Kelly

  11. Dearest YASS,

     

    I'm very glad to hear you are on the road to recovery. It was great to see all the well-wishes from everyone here. I have been having trouble keeping signed on or there would have been one from me too. Thankfully, my computer is cooperating long enough to get this through.

    It was nice to see you got coins in the mail. Too bad WE couldn't have sent YOU a Mystery Coin!!

    I send you my prayers and best wishes for a speedy and full recovery.

     

    All the best to you, always...Kelly

  12. Dear Miss-Keeto,

     

    Sorry to hear you are selling your collection. From what I see with eBay, people usually pay big

    money for geocoins. I saw you added the Ouija two piece coin. That is on the top of my wish list.

    I'd have bought that if you were selling it separately.

     

    All the best to you...GeoCharmer81 (AKA Kelly)

  13. Congrats to Li-Z for her visit from our favorite Witch!! Who needs to wait for Santa when we have Sabrina flying year-round!!! Bet I just made his Naughty List. Yeah, JUST--I wasn't on it already :laughing:

    Thanks to everyone who keeps Sabrina flying. Maybe she'll park her broom in my closet :D

    Greetings all,

    I got an answer from Claudia at Sepp & Berta's explaining the Coin. Mecklenberg-Vorpommern is a state in north Germany and the center of the coin depicts their logo. The colors signify green hills, blue sky and rivers, and the sun. There is also a compass rose.

     

    She said the saying translated to "something like":

     

    "what you don't have in your head you have to have it in your feet"

     

    or "Those who can't use their head must use their back"

     

    or "A weak memory makes weary legs"

     

    The above are her translations. I take that to mean, more or less, "work smart, not hard."

    She didn't say what the letters on the reverse are, but, I beleive they may be compass directions.

     

    Thanks again to our friend Y.A.S.S. and hope everyone gets their heart's desire!!

    Safe and happy caching to all...Kelly

  15. Greetings all,

    Just flying by to say "Hi' and see if my Sister Witch Sabrina had landed yet!! Boy, her broom must be putting on some miles. Wonder what kind of brew she'll be recharging with next. :)

    On Saturday, I added a new county to my geocache list, then went to a Meet and Greet. On Sunday, a friend of mine who is a SERIOUS car collector had a car club meeting and car show at his garages. Then, Monday, I was blessed to be the reciepient of the Mecklenberg-Vorpommern from Y.A.S.S. Mystery Coiner. WOW, what a great start of the Spring season!!! :D

    I hope everyone else is well. Safe and happy caching to all... Kelly

  16. Dear Y.A.S.S.,

    I have a few translation books and was unable to translate. I checked out the Sepp & Berta website you suggested. There was not a translation there, either. I sent them an email with a request for the info. I believe the obverse may be compass directions. When I get a translation, I'll post it here for all those, like me, who are curious. If it's not too rude to print!!

    I have a very strange sense of humor, but, some of their coins are a bit "iffy" even for me!!!! :):D

     

    Thanks again, Kelly

  17. Congrats to the "new" recipients of the Koi!!! Great stories of how the Koi swam into their lives.

    I had a great weekend doing a little caching on Saturday (added another county to my list). On Sunday, a friend of mine who is a SERIOUS car collector had a car club meeting and show at his garages! WOW!!! :) Then, today, I recieved one of the Y.A.S.S. coins. DOUBLE WOW!!!!! :D :D

     

    Safe and happy caching to all

     

    KEEP SPREADING THE KOI JOY!!!!

    Greetings all,

    I am fairly new to geocaching and very new to the Forums. I am quite pleased and amazed to be blessed by Y.A.S.S.'s having added me to the special group of people who recieved the gift of a very beautiful coin. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! This coin will remain with me for those times when I need to remember its message and to share with others. I will try to post a picture. Have not attempted to upload(?) pics, so don't be surprised if it takes me a bit to figure it out!!

    Y.A.S.S., I am embarrassed to say I am unsure what language is printed on the coin. Would you (or someone else) please translate?? The obverse is: ^MECKLENBURG- VORPOMMERN^ wat en nich in kopp hett, dat mutt he in de Been hebben! The reverse is: DM^GU^LWL^MST^MUR^NVP^NWM^OVP^PCH^RUG^UER^HGW^NB^HRO^SN^HST^HWI^DBR

    Thanks, also, to your Mother --she "done good" in raising such a thoughtful person!! Congrats to all the other reciepents, as well. I hope Y.A.S.S. has someone just as special to share life's blessings with. Now, I am going to call my Mom before her shows start!!

    Oh, I was so thrilled with recieving the coin, I almost went to our monthly Sittin' Round Talkin' Cache tonight which is (only) two days early!!!! Safe and happy caching to all...Kelly
