A Toast to Forrest

A Toast to Forrest
Forrest knows all the where's and there's, let's show him a few here here's!

Happy Birthday Forrest Fenn
Can you believe
It's come around again?
Another notch on the post,
A cake of Forrest fire,
I raise my glass
And I toast
A man I greatly admire.

Forrest Fenn
You've changed my life
You've made it something new.
I wonder how time might have passed
If I'd never heard of you.

I've looked for your box
But I'll tell you what,
Solving you're poem
Is a pain in the butt!

I did find a treasure though,
In the mountains and the woods,
On the blogs at at boree,
You delivered on the goods.

You gave us all a gift
You see
It's given every day
For every single one of us
We get a chance to play.
So even though the years add up
And time is less a friend,
Remember you'll live on in us,
Forever, Forrest fenn!

Happy Birthday Forrest. :-)

A Toast to Forrest
Happy Birthday Caper! I hope I live well into my eighties and have a story to tell. My key word would be "family."

RE: A Toast to Forrest
Mr. Fenn,
On your birthday I would like to thank you for a few things that I have discovered through your appearances and writings. I appreciate them more now than I did a few years ago.
The brotherhood of Our Armed Services, especially those that served during the Vietnam War.
A deeper appreciation of the cultural history of the Native American Indians.
The ability to stay focused and that sometimes the end is not the end, is never the end.
The limitlessness of my imagination.
Overcoming my greed and when it clouds my vision.
Finally, how to live with a secret that is not shared with, family, friends, neighbors, no one.
Happy Birthday young feller….don’t take too many swigs of Worcestershire today, and may your flashlight never wear out.
Daniel A

RE: A Toast to Forrest
Dear Mr. Fenn,

I have so much enjoyed playing "hide-n-seek in the forest with Forrest" over the last eighteen months or so. At first I had no clue, and well, I still don't, but I've learned to see things through your eyes a little and that has helped me expand my horizons and also discover the new location I'm currently searching in. Maybe one of these days I'll actually win a round. lol

My chase has been a journey of recovery, as I had a business failure and subsequent divorce that wiped me out around the same time I learned of TTOTC. So my search trips have kept my mind busy with a goal and getting out into the beautiful mountains has been a great experience and provided healing for my soul.

Thanks to you, I've been to and seen some amazing things that I would have never taken in had it not been for your challenge to strike out and search for your trove.
I hope your birthday is blessed with health, happiness, as well as family and friends on this special day.

Thank you for the thrill of the chase.

Blessings,
RedEx

Awesome poem jdigginsz!

I'd like to share this song, although it's not recorded yet in any format. Hopefully I'll be able to purchase some proper equipment to record it in the near future. Smile

If you read this Mr. Fenn, I hope you have a wonderfully blessed day and many more just like this from year to year!

A beautiful man with a nice plan

What does it take to chase a dream, today(hold)
A beautiful man with a nice plan, a way(hold)
So now that I see it in my mind, I will not sway(hold)
My notes I had written and the ink, let it fray(hold)

Chorus
Love is fine, love is peace, love is sweet
Walking on a lonesome trail with my mate
I'm on a thrill when I chase it, our minds meet
Probably Very Close, hopefully not too late!

We're going to show you, this man had a great mind(hold)!
Doubter's goin' to eat a slice of humble pie(hold)!
Some had said he was a fraud but they were blind(hold)!
Wonder if they'll say sorry, for being unkind(hold)!

Chorus
Love is fine, love is peace, love is sweet
Walking on a lonesome trail with my mate
I'm on a thrill when I chase it, our minds meet
Probably Very Close, hopefully not too late!

He hid his special treasures, that he had for a lifetime wrought
Devised a thrilling quest, to find his chest, and ease others pain
And give a chance to the poor to find a trove that can't be bought
A millionaire overnight, like a hollywood movie, you - just - can't - ob - tainnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Final Chorus
Love is fine, love is peace, love is sweet
Walking on a lonesome trail with my mate
I'm on a thrill when I chase it, our minds meet
Probably Very Close, hopefully not too late!
Wait! What's this here... pull out that bat!
hahahahahah Forrest Fenn, Did you really do that???
hahahahahah
Love is fine, love is peace, love is sweet
Walking on a lonesome trail with my mate
I'm on a thrill when I chase it, our minds meet
Probably Very Close, hopefully not too late!
