    Default Shm

    It was suggested that the State could be Connecticut (based on the connect four board, eye drawing, and scissors) and the Highway could be I-95 (based on the hopscotch court). This may not be the best way of going about it, but here's a list (may not be complete) of the mile markers for the rest stops on I-95 in Connecticut. Perhaps there's a number hidden in he picture within these ranges:

    12
    21-22
    40-41
    53-54
    61-61
    92

    I actually did the same...just looked for possible reststops... but I came to the conclusion that 95 must be wrong. The way you play hop-scotch is from the bottom to the top... it is 59 not 95. I know it looks like it but are we 100% sure that the state clue is Connect - eye - cut? Is there any other possible alternative?

    Default 5 on road

    There is a clear 5 on race track - near the purple car - the other 5's don't look like 5's - but the one closest to the little purple car does.

    It has been awhile since a portion of my book has been missing (kids tore it in half)
    so I don't have perfect recall of certain details, but I was wondering, who thinks those kids removed some of the doll eyes to furnish their need for their game tokens?

    Found my missing pages. Looks like the answer is NO, they didn't remove doll eyes to fill their connect four game or toss in hopscotch.

    Now my book is in 5-pieces, kids really like sharing...

    In search of sub-layer themes this evening and since I'm on a roll thought I'd take a stab at this floor. There are many dolls, games, rotting foods and general messiness here. I like how the kids have wall painted with their palms a bunch and made a fort in their parent's bedroom. The broom-swing is cool. So...lots of track in the main room, and lots of prints.

    The name origin of Kaulken, as best as I can tell, is Ireland. My theory that the Kaulken's parents are Jigsy and Krieger still stands. The track of thought I prefer to take is based on the hopscotch game which I think points to Scotland (hopSCOTch). A common dance form in Ireland and Scotland is the Jig (Jigsy). The colors of the Scotland flag are blue and white, same as the blue prints. The colors of the Royal Standard flag are red and yellow, same as the red prints and the connect four game. Not a lot to go on, but interpreting themes throughout the book (not relying on outside sources) I would keep a close eye on state/national flowers. Scotland's flower is the Thistle.

    My page for this floor went out with the recycling. Until my new book comes in, I'll just have to wait to review the details of this floor once more.

    Also, I've lost track of my notes on the Kaulkens. I had an interesting aside to do with a Kaulken reference to the Manilla area of the Philippines. Something historical regarding the Philippine-American war and a coup of some sort in an old news paper article. This is surely an off the wall random sort of "why even bother" thing to investigate, but there was a thread involving the theme of Peace and War that I did have success with putting together on one of my many late night wiki-goog-ing.

    I still can't find the right items to cross reference. The main particular I recall is something about Emilio Aguinaldo ordering an attack on US soldiers. A couple things that register with themes I've been looking into is that political symbol used in the Philippines was a white KKK on a red flag. This KKK wasn't the same as the Ku-Klux-Klan. Another notion was a news paper called the La Solidad (spelling?) which reminded me of a comment by Gus where he referes to a well known Journalist, Soledad O'Brian. Perhaps all this only supports an emphasis on the letter K.
