The Old Bat: Well, looks like this one has finally run its course. The last few people who logged in said there was construction in the area with lots of boards and nails lying around. The last person to log in couldn't find it so I checked it out today when I was in Gimli. I found the cache sitting on the step out in the open right near where it had been tucked in under the building. That is the last piece that they had left to board up after building another ramp and boarding up all the other areas around it.
I believe the workmen knew it was there and maybe today being Monday was the day they finally had no choice but to either board it up under the building or place it out in the open. Thank you for saving my purple ammo can.

This one will definitely show up in another spot some where down the road. I have a spot in mind already, I just have to check it out and then give the Ammo Can another paint job and refill the contents. Look for it soon.

Geocache Description:

Easily accessible cache with very little walking required.

This cache is in a location that brings back memories of four little girls all in identical dresses and of having ice cream on a hot summer day. Thanks to Junglehair for allowing me to copy her "I will wear Purple Cache" which is located in Rochester, NY. All the items in this cache are either purple or red.
A red feather scrunchy

A purple purse with hair accessories
A red change purse
A purple change purse
A red Bingo Dabber

A ball or red wool
A ball of purple wool
A package of red buttons and another of purple buttons

Please trade items that will continue the red or purple theme.



When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
and satin sandals and say we've no money for butter.

I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.

I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other people's gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickles for a week.
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

- Jenny Joseph
