Some of you may have come across the first TB I released, Purple Pointer Pal, a pint-sized purple piggy pointer pal [a UWSP keychain]. It's been up in Canada for a while, and I got this message from someone today. I think it's worth the read. Laughing Laughing

Hi shine_like_a_star!
I'm emailing you from the wilds of central/northern Ontario in Canada. I need your help so that I can help your cute little piggy Purple Pointer TB. Here's our tale of woe as it pertains to PP...

I came across this perky purple piglet for the second time a few days ago. I was caching with a friend. A brand spanking new (pregnant) cacher-in-training (DL897)! I was trying to introduce her to this fab past-time. We came across your puny porker at "Outside the Wire" GCZRQ0 - a cache in a pine forest outside a military base. This was my 3rd attempt at this tricky cache. This cache usually has lots of TBs (because of its close proximity to so many peripatetic soldiers.) I was hoping for a TB prize! But the only bug we found was your perfect porker, which I had previously possessed and eventually placed in my own "Please Please Peasmarsh" GC126Z2 cache. Rather than leaving your Purple Pointer a prisoner in this military issue pig pen were felt it prudent to plop him in the pregnant newbie's pocket as he may be in peril due to perdition by possible predators.

So, with my friend acting as the porker porter, we packed up and pushed on to our next destination - visiting a poor friend who is a patient in a hospital pretty far (1 ˝ hours) from home. After trying to perk up the poor pyjama-clad patient, we pressed on to another cache that was a gentle promenade as preferred by my pregnant friend. After pulling out paper and pen to record the pertinent TB digits, she proceeded to place your pretty little piggy in new plastic pigpen with some new barnyard pals (a moo-cow, a horse, a skunk and a zebra.) We've provided a new home at "Skool'd" GCVD6K on the campus of Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario. Lots of professors and pupils and pom-pom toting fans proudly watching proficient players on this soccer pitch. Appropriate for your prodigious college educated pig!

Now here is the problem. It seems preposterous but. Perhaps due to pregnancy pickle-headedness. Perhaps due to poor penmanship. Perhaps due to faulty pencil or pen.. It appears that the TB # as per this person's paper record is far from perfect. She phoned me to see if I still possessed the pertinent digits from my previous possession of the portly piggy. But alas, I didn't keep the paper with the pig's number. Once I processed it, I pitched the papier. So here is our predicament, although together DL897 and I have taken Purple Pointer on a journey of over 100km. neither of us have the correct TB#. Poor pregnant DL897 seems to be a bit frustrated. She just wants to release the pig and prepare to produce her prodigy. Please provide me (or DL897) with the appropriate # so that the Purple Pointing Piggy can proceed! Patiently hoping for help.

Phew! That penned prose is perfectly preposterous.

If this isn't a perfect prose for a class on alliteration, I don't know what is! That's some creative writing!

Please, please pass along the portly piggys propper numbers. Put it to paper with pen or pencil, and put it the promptly. Shocked
