Johnny Depp

I just carved and sent off two Johnny Depp stamps to a fellow letterboxer in California to be placed in a series in Los Angeles. I loved carving these! I chose "Sweeney Todd" and Sam from "Benny and Joon". Now we will just need to plan a vacation to California to go hunt my stamps! :) Both images carved with a razor knife.

Shiver me timbers! Why, it be September 19th, International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

And 't celebrate, me and me mateys are goin' out t' eat. But as seein' that we be stuck in Utah with all ye landlubbers, I be needin' t' find a respectable place t' plunder fer decent victuals, bein' a Pirate 'n all. I do s'pose it's better than mutineers leavin' me t' rot on an Island with no food at all!

If it's treasure ye be seekin', ye may want t' take a gander at me treasure map. When ye are seekin' th' treasure, be all sneaky like and be sure th' adult hands be th' ones a-grabbin' and a-puttin' away. Delicate items be contained within that little hands can break.

Aztec Gold be treasure worth a-huntin'! Arrrr!

Notes: The management of the establishment is aware of the existence of this box.

Prepare to be scared! The Haunted Forest is one of Utah's finest haunted "houses". Covering over 200,000 square feet in the middle of a small forest of trees, the Haunted Forest provides a very spooky experience indeed! Here, the Boogie Man awaits your visit.

Find the red fire hydrant in front of the main sign. Take approximately 50 steps to the south. There will be a chain link fence on your left. Boogie Man will be next to the utility pole under a SPOR, waiting for you.
