We grabbed this seedling about 6 months ago from ODS : Fenris Wulf-Marzipan #5 in West Bend. Finally getting around to reseeding it. Not quite sure if an ODS can be combined with a WSQ, but here goes.
My Dad was a child of the Great Depression and a member of the Greatest Generation. He managed to support a family of 8 on a salary that seems paltry in retrospect. To supplement his income, he was always on the lookout for hidden treasure. A chunk of iron here, a length of copper wire there, scrap metal was not so much junk as a potential new appliance or a new toy for his children. My first new baseball glove was financed by the proceeds of his metallic recycling.
What separated Curly from the ordinary scrap collector was his inordinate ability to see lost coins on the ground. Crossing a parking lot, strolling through a park, or walking along a sidewalk were merely excuses for him to search for people's misplaced change. His booty was kept in jars in his dresser and after he passed on, the coins were divided among his offspring.
Since his death we have all had those instances of finding a coin and imagining that Curly is looking down upon us.
The cache you seek is located as close to my dad's grave as I could find a hiding place. You will not need to step on any graves to reach the cache. The cache is south of the road and Curly is buried in the 2nd row just north of the road. Look for Chester and Mary. If you are so inclined, bring a coin you've found and leave it on his grave, everyone else in our family does. Occasionally, we'll collect the coins and drop them in a poor box somewhere.
