I participated in the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen last week and it was one of the most fabulous experiences ever.  What does this mean?

Well, it means we saved Scrappy.

Item #61  “Go to your local animal shelter/rescue and hold a photo shoot for one of its residents. Make an adoption flyer promoting the animal using the photos you’ve taken and post them on telephone poles. Prove that your campaign was successful. (It can be multiple images photoshopped into one submission).


And that’s just part of what Team Inevitable Innuendo did!

Just wait until next year!

And thanks to Tony who saw the poster and told Gordy who went and got Scrappy for his family!

And thanks to the Garland Animal Shelter that let him have Scrappy for $35 even though I got my information from the wrong place and he was supposed to $80.

The world is a wonderful place, and GISHWHES is an annual reminder of that.
