    That's one of your old favorites, huh?

    Your right. The magnifying glass is for looking at the little picture verses the big picture

If I ever find the treasure chest, my declaration email will be written in large font and ALL CAPS.

    Here you go, Mr. Fenn. I'm sorry none of us thought to send this sooner ...

    Is this a way of Forrest communicating with the LS to continue to email him? Did the LS get confused by the previous request to stop emailing Forrest and has stopped? Did Forrest suddenly wonder why communication with the LS has suddenly stopped and thought he would reply publicly so the LS will continue to send emails?

    Or, was this simply a cliche way of saying he has no intention of quitting what he is doing?
    Forrest is thinking about oldenhood. Searchers are thinking about his boldenhood where he hid his goldenhood that could be near the blazenhood in a neighborhood that is possibly underhood or maybe underwood if they only could figure it out , hence understood .

    I think it is interesting that F says that. It sounds as though he might have shared something that could be valuable and is listening to see if anyone has caught on... At the same time though, it could be very innocent. Older people tend to feel this way sometimes. People treat them like children again. He has said that he's not allowed to drive outside of Santa Fe, that he's always being reminded of what's good for him to eat, etc.. It could be that simple, an old man sharing his frustrations about getting older. Like everything gets better with age, yet when humans age no one feels they are more valuable, more often they are treated like a liability.

    I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to understand Forrest realizes that he's edging his way toward his last 15 and so is his wife that he treasures more than anything. He has some prior commitments it appears, he has had a lot of interactions with the press lately, along with other projects like all the documentaries, board games and even has had to moderate some childish drama too... He's almost 90, people need to back off and let him enjoy this time.

    Maybe the LS has never e-mailed Fenn directly, knowing there's little or no benefit in doing so. Communication (between the two) can happen "publicly" via these forums.

After all the one person Fenn does want to hear from is the lead searcher/hunter. If Fenn is going to craft his hints in the scrapbooks to assist the LS in the final location, he has to know the lead searcher’s progress. So no I don’t think the LS has stopped emailing Fenn. He might have even increased his emailing.

    oldenhood = old bell above dolls in his den

    ps- I think he has quite the nice patina these days, and only gets better.
    So hold onto your forks.. the best is yet to come.
