Jewel of the waterfall - archeology adventure

It is I, Little Fox Archeologist on a adventure in the woods looking for the secret jewels I read about online.  I am just doing a fact finding mission today, no whip, no other archeologist tools except a pencil and paper to make a map. 

The water is high today.  Probably hard to find the jewels when the water is running so fast.

My faithful (and food motivated assistant Sequoia) found the waterfall.  Agast, the water is running too high for me to search for any jewels. 
I wonder what secrets the waterfall holds? If it didn't rain too much over Thanksgiving perhaps the water would be moving slower and I could sneak under the falls to see if there is a secret tomb or door behind the falls for me to explore.  **Sigh**

Should I come back here in the summer looking for the jewels or should I continue my Archeology studies at the University and come back when I have earned passing marks on all of my classes?

A room with a view

Recently, my roommates took me on a  weekend overnight to a historic hotel.
We stayed in Room 13, which I highly recommend for Jerry and Ben to come out, stay in that specific room. Here is the view from that room.
Do you see the train?  It was literally across the street and the tracks were busy.  Freight trains and Amtrak alike.
Of course with trains outside your window comes a train station as well.
I look very stoic here don't I?  This information might be helpful.  Perhaps I take Amtrak to Canada next time, versus budget class on Canadian Goose Airlines.  
Now that my research is done, let's see what is around town.  I read that there was a farm that sells homemade apple fritters and has goats on display.

I appreciate how they have this animal listed as a "goat".  I didn't know that.
Local honey in the farm shop.  Is $6.99 a good price?
You could also buy bags of animal feed to feed the goats.  I bought some and told my roommates to feed the goats, they get very excited about the food (probably a nice change from eating grass all day).  Anyway, best I stay away from the feeding goats as I have heard they eat anything.
Besides visiting the farm my roommates thought we better go to the Wolf Sanctuary nearby. 

A couple of wolves in the settlements.  They eat raw meat (yuk) and get pumpkins for enrichment.  This sanctuary also has some wolf-dogs and coyotes in it. No foxes though.  

Being a little fox I must admit I stayed close to my roommates (very close) at the sanctuary.  Those wolves, wolf-dogs, and coyotes were big.  I was brave enough to hang out with this wolf. 

All of this sightseeing has made me hungry.  This place looks interesting, my only question is what should I get?

A secret meeting

It's me, Little Fox Archaeologist.  I received a special message from Droopy via the mail recently and he told me to meet his operative at night in the Wicker District for a special item that all archaeologists need.
The Wicker District is kind of scary at night.

"Psst" said a small bear out of the shadows in the Wicker District.  I turned around and knew it was Droopy's operative.  He pulled out this object, what is it?  The operative said "Droopy wants you to have this, all archaeologists need one." I was still confused, then it dawned on me when the operative started humming the theme to Indiana Jones.

The operative and I had a discussion about how to use the whip then all of a sudden sirens started blaring (you know the Wicker District is dangerous at night).  The operative turned to the right, then to the left and said he had to go.
One last picture of the operative heading back into the shadows of the Wicker District.  Who knows what messages or packages he will deliver next.
I must admit I do look fetching with my new whip and I certainly look like a real archaeologist.  Let's see how this thing works.  Whip it backward.  **Snap**

.  **Snap**  Whip it forward. **Snap**
Looks like I caught a ball. Not bad for an up and coming archaeologist. I wonder if they teach whipping and adventuring when students study archaeology at college?

Thank you Droopy for the cool whip (and other items soon to be blogged about in a future episode of Little Fox, Archaeologist).

I'm Back

Hi Blog Pals,
Little Fox back at the helm of the blog.  I want to thank my dear friends Kermit, Drunk Fox, Little Bear, and Reindeer and his assistant Bear for keeping the blog going while I was on holiday (as they say in London) with Sandy.  Additionally, I want to wish everyone a happy Veteran's Day.  Thank you Veteran's.

While I was out I received quite a bit of mail. Let's see what I got.

Looks like Droopy took a trip to the red mill in New Jersey.  He also sent some items for me to explore on the next  episode of Little Fox, Archaeologist (in a future blog).  I have never been to New Jersey but it sure seems pretty - my only experience with New Jersey is from watching the Sopranos so I am happy to see it has lots of scenic places.

President elect Ajdin took a road trip to Chincoteague Island in Virginia.  He said there were lots of horses (and mosquitoes) on his trip to Chincoteague Island.  I wonder if it was a campaign road trip?

I got another card from my friend in Seattle.  She took a trip to Montana a few weeks ago.  Looks like there was lots of sunshine on that trip and no snow.  Montana sure is diverse, note to self to I need to plan a trip to Montana asap.

Jerry and Ben took a trip to Jacksonville. Sounds like a relaxing trip involving sitting by the pool and drinking honey ice tea.  Probably a nice break from the Fall weather in the Midwest.

Here is a card I sent to my roommates and the other animals from London.  We had great company with Beanie, Jelly Mouse, and Otto, wonderful weather, great pub food and a great time. I am ready for my next tour Ajdin and Sandy!

Bear's rejoice

Looks like a few of my bearista bear friends will have some new clothing options.  Saw these today at Starbucks.
These ones are straight off  This bear below sure looks a lot like Sandy.
 This one below sure looks a lot like Jerry.
Now where is the Ben look-a-like bear?

We need a professional taster.

Drunk Fox and I were having a heated discussion about which team is going to win the World Series.  I, Big Bear, am hoping for the Cubs to win while Drunk Fox is hoping for the Indians.  We kept arguing and bickering back and forth and we decided to focus our energy on planning something for Little Fox's return to Oregon.
Little Bear heard about our conversation and wanted to get in on it. 
Drunk Fox suggested Honey Roasted Peanuts. As Drunk Fox recalls, Jerry seemed to like these peanuts when he and Ben visited Sandy last summer.  If they are good enough for Jerry then they are good enough for Little Fox. 
Little Bear and Big bear agree but think Little Fox might like cookies instead. 
Those cookies look good. I still think he would like peanuts.  Big and Little Bear suggested cookies.  Argh.
Reindeer heard the gang arguing and had to pop in and give his two cents.  Reindeer, being healthy and a vegetarian agrees with Drunk Fox in giving Little Fox peanuts.  Oh no, it's a tie.  What are we going to do?  Little Bear and Drunk Fox both realized at the same time that one of their blog pals, Jerry might be able to help out.
Do you think Jerry would help us out?  Should we mail him a package and he can taste test the cookies and the peanuts?  Should we send some extra food for Ben?  Arg, so many questions.
Let's do it guys!  Let's send this package to Jerry for his idea on which food to serve.  I think we best get this package out in the mail.  Thanks Jerry - we are patiently awaiting your feedback.
