    Wow, Domino! I'll bet you've never been to Alaska or Hawaii, nor my state of Wisconsin. The Dells are awesome. Did you take your poodle, Charlie with you? Just kidding. Had a John Steinbeck moment. I love to hike!

You make the rules...A little side bet.

    One problem with this side bet- and I do like side bets under normal circumstances- is that if I give up the four states I havent been to, you can mark them off your list of where the COWBOY treasure is NOT buried. So, I am going to have to decline this challenge, for now at least.

    This is a short chapter. It is only one page, and a lot of that page is taken up by these strange puzzles. Since it seems obvious that some puzzles are meant to go together, I was just wondering if perhaps the puzzles on this page (21) go with page 11. We have the words "The Bone Yard" on page 21, and we have what seems to be a headstone on page 11.

    I know some people have mentioned that perhaps page 11 goes with the crossword puzzle (Saloon Song), because of the Ss in the two circles. But it seems that nothing has ever developed along that line of thinking.

    Hi Domino.

    I was just in a playful mood and got excited that I caught your hint. I did not mean to help eliminate a State in our search. Sorry. It was selfish of me. My daughter lived in Boston a few years ago. I was so hoping to see her and visit the historic city. I studied every building, park and rock in every media I could find. But it was too late. I didn't have the money at the time my daughter decided to move back to Chicago. She lives closer to me now. And I am grateful for that, even though I missed an opportunity.

    In October last year I traveled through the Appalachian mountains en route to Washington DC. There is a bluish haze that surrounds the peaks like the pictures I had seen. Just beautiful! The canyons and valleys are spectacular! I only wished I could have gotten out of the car to hike. um ... just sharing.

    Foxy... my son works in the Dells at the Easter Seals respite camp. Loves it. Yup, we have a beautiful state. Pretty sure none of the Cowboy clues lead us here though... lol...

    I was thinking about that phonetic thing... and Domino did something in dialect a while back in one of his notes - he said, Mayyam for Ma'am... didn't we have a code that included Mayam at the beginning? Is it possible that it is just simply to be read aloud in Cowboy dialect? Something like Ma'am I take the hint or something...

    Hi Prof Tarr!

    "Mayyam"... sounds edible. I think Domino was just doing cowboy talk like John Wayne. Ron Stiles from the show "Who's Line Is It Anyway" does a great cowboy John Wayne-like impression. Stuck up here in Wisc... watch a lot of TV.

    The Urban dictionary of mayyam: ... exclamation of shock, astonishment or sheer puzzlement. Originated from NW London. I'm for the "puzzlement" part, then again, it could simply be the same as ma'am. Just interesting mayyam and ma'am have two letters that are the same.

    Let's not over-think it. I'm trying these days to think like a child. Kid puzzles are loads of fun. So is this hunt.

    Just interesting. Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary... is a city Triangulated area forum. They talked about ma'am and how northerners, like us may not take to the term as well as southerners. I lived in East Texas in a small town outside Tyler called Chapel Hill. We said ma'am all the time and considered it respectful. Triangles! ... I'm still working on that part of this book.


    Happy Troving,
    Beth
