THE GINGERBREAD MAN
~~~ Box #2: The Gingerbread Man ~~~
Back in 2006, "Papaya" created a box series named "The Gingerbread Man". Needless to say, I went looking for them and had lots of fun hunting for them. However, I was able to find only 5 out of 6 boxes.
A few years later, after the owner moved out of state and archived the series, I accidentally discovered one of them was still in it's original hiding place. So, I set out to find what remained of the series.
With 4 of the 6 original boxes and stamps found, I commissioned 5 more stamps to be carved by "Terrakacher". Subsequently, I created my own rendition of the "Gingerbread Man" story with 9 boxes.
Now you have the chance to hunt for this series. Some of the places, where my boxes are hidden, are the originally hiding places. I hope you have fun hunting for this letterbox series as I did several years ago!
As the Old Woman turned away for a moment, to retrieve more dough to bake some cookies, the Gingerbread Man quickly leaped off the counter and ran out the back door of the house. As he departed, he said, "I won't be anyone's snack today and I am going to run away!" He ran North past the Barn hoping to find a place to hide. He came to an Old Pump-House and hid behind a small Pile of Rocks at it's NW Corner, where he rest, all the while keeping watch for The Old Woman.
There are several versions of The Gingerbread Man over the last many decades since it's inception. I have taken the liberty of combining various portions of different versions, to include a few enhancements of my own, within this letterbox. You may want to visit these links:
