Fox Hunt

The latest issue of “Woodcarving Illustrated” was in my mail box today. I sat down to start reading about all the great carvers and projects and I found a blurb about the ‘Fox Hunt’. If you find this microscopic woods dweller some place in the magazine you can enter for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Fox Chapel Publishing.

In the last three hours I have done nothing but poor over every photo, advertisement and illustration looking for the Fox. All hopes of learning something new and admiring the craft of others that is light years beyond is lost. I must find the Fox! Why do people do things like this to other people? I have animals that need tended too. A wife and kids that need my attention as well, but no! I have to find the Fox!

I have a headache. The dogs snoring sounds like a freight train. My eyes are crossed and burning. I gave the magazine to my daughter she made it to page 53 before she was pulling her hair out. If there was a championship for “Where is Waldo?” she would surely be a shoe in. She tossed the magazine back to me saying she had to go do her chores.

What is wrong with me? Its just a chance at $25 not like I will win for sure, but still a chance. I must find the Fox!

Start from the back of the book. The mind goes into overdrive when you do something different. Turn the page upside down so nothing is what your eye wants to see.

They’ve made Fox hunting illegal in some parts – perhaps that’s the case where you live. LOL

the good news is that next month they will show you where the fox was hidden.. of course then you have to kick yourself because it was so obvious….

I see now why I never went fox hunting, even when they had a bounty on them. I only see them when I am not looking for them.

Have your say...
