This will be my last transmission about this issue, as it is now closed. First off, let’s take a look at the physical property I was looking for, which eluded me, but not the wary eyes and brain of local resident, Derek Foster:
So my mind wasn’t thrown off much. I was looking for an envelope.
Ultimately, had I noticed earlier what I noticed yesterday, I would have found it the day before. And yeah, yeah. I guess anyone can say that. But here’s why I DO say it.
“A Paper Tree for the loot … crossing the river is a hoot.”
It was not until the loot had already and unknowingly been found that I noticed something that I hadn’t before.
The first three words are capitalized. HOW–did I miss this? Oh, I KNOW how. because there is nothing extraordinary about me or my approach. Anyway.
A–P–T. At first I started trying to think of any “apartments” that sat right next to public property, and also property that would meet the standards for the contest. Then, Clara says to me “what if it stands for A Pine Tree?”
This works, because also the term “a paper tree” crosses back to it’s own meaning, being that Pine is harvested for paper here.
“Shasta Dam construction is not there … school, dancing, singing if you care.”
