Where's Bosco? 

Category:  This-n-That

I think the time has come for me to be silent no longer.     A "member" of my family has been missing for over two years.     It began innocently enough but, perhaps I should start at the beginning ...

As an Interior Designer, I have owned, operated and moderated a newsgroup for professional designers, decorators and DIY'ers since 1998.     In 2002, there was a phenomenon that was sweeping the country -- in fact, the world.     That phenomenon was the Flat Stanley Project, which school children were involved with everywhere!

Thinking this might be something we could adapt as a fun little round-robin activity for a responsible group of adults who had been together for quite some time, I suggested that Bosco, a stuffed cat that lived with me (not taxidermy stuffed!), could visit participants on the newsgroup list, along with his travel journal, and each person could add comments, photos, etc. before sending him on to his next destination.     Bosco went to Mardi Gras, as well as at least three other vacation destinations, and visited at least eight different States.     Somehow. on the third to last person's stop, the person he was with was waiting on photos to be developed for the travel journal, so Bosco was sent to his next destination without his travel journal, with the promise that it would soon follow.     Then, when the travel journal didn't arrive in a timely manner, the next participant sent Bosco on to the last location, and held their photos and notes, still waiting on the travel journal to arrive.

Sadly, "someone" misplaced the travel journal, and the last person to receive Bosco fell off the face of the earth.     So, that precious little fuzzy grey kitty that was supposed to return home by late 2002, with a travel journal full of fun photos and tales of adventures, is a missing person or, at least, a missing kitty.

If ANYONE from our newsgroup (or is familiar with members of our newsgroup) might be reading this, and might know where Bosco and/or his travel journal is/are, please e-mail me and I will send out my current home address, and will pay all shipping charges, NO QUESTIONS ASKED!

Bosco has eight real fur-baby sisters and brothers (five cats and three dogs) that would love for him to come back home again!
