    Default Easter egg hunt...ScrollQuest style

    Happy Easter to all!!!!

    I hope that everyone has a fantastic holiday and is able to slow down and take a break from all the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. Relax, spend time with loved ones...and hunt easter eggs.

    When I was a kid I LOVED hunting easter eggs. This year is the first time that I've actually been the one HIDING the eggs. Josie loves eggs! So, I thought it would be fun if I went ahead and hid an egg for all of you too.

    A blue and gold authentic Faberge egg.

    Real purty too!!!!!!

    Ok, so I didn't hide the egg. I've got it with me. But I hid a coin! A nice little SQ coin. Somewhere in the US. And I'm going to be releasing clues weekly to help you find it. First one to the coin gets the egg. You better move quickly too, my wife is eyeing this thing.

    So without further blabbering, I give you...

    " The SQ Grown Up Easter Egg Hunt"

    Clue #1:

    Have you ever had that sinking feeling? Like you have so many ideas and not enough to power them all. In 1978 I felt like that. Then everything changed. I felt like I had so much in common with everyone. Common ground. That's good. And now the ideas run everywhere. And walk too. And swim! Especially swim. Swim all day long. In times past Jack and his sons ran the wall near here. But Jack's not here anymore. But I am! Won't you come visit? I like visitors. I keep special things cradled for them up the "Au traînée" Oui?





    HAPPY EASTER!!!!!

    The first thing I notice about the clue is that there are exactly 100 words.

    The second thing is that if you remove all of the spaces and punctuation, there are exactly 401 letters.

    Au traînée = at the/on the trail. Yes?

    That's a beautiful egg!!!!! Thanks, Jason....another hunt for me to loose sleep over! LOL

    au = a, the
    trainee = track, trail. It can also mean drag or (slang) tart, but I don't think the last two apply.
    cradle = To place or retain in or as if in a cradle.
    To care for or nurture in infancy.
    To hold or support protectively: cradled the cat in his arms.
    To reap (grain) with a cradle.
    To place or support (a ship, for example) in a cradle.
    To wash (gold-bearing dirt) in a cradle.

    I just thought the use of the word cradled was interesting. How do you exactly "cradle" something up the trail? Or "cradle" something up the smoke trail? I made the definition that relates to ships because the first sentence in the clue makes me think of boats....I'm grasping at straws now, I think.....LMAO Vitta
