Hidden Cash? Ptui. What’s a couple of bucks taped to a pissy fire hydrant when you can have a couple of dozen state-fair-winning chocolate chip cookies? Hmmm? All you have to do is find the NEWS24-680 magnet, document the find at the EXACT place you found our magnet by noon Friday and voila!
An Orinda family has already Cookied Up, their sharp-eyed youngster finding one of our magnets on a popular local walking trail, the Mum In Charge taking the required Magnet Selfie and sending the evidence to NEWS24-680. A pretty pink box with two dozen chippy creations from prize winning local patisserie Les Trois Bisous arrived and it was Cookie Time at that Orinda household. Easy Peasy.
Our last Blue Clue was positioned just above the koi pond at Va de Vi and we can report that several Walnut Creek residents were close, but no koi as they searched ponds high and low after our last clue. Close doesn’t count in the NEWS24-680 Cookie Hunt so here’s a new clue for you. If you want insight into our past hiding places, search the site for our past riddles and maybe you’ll get the hang of us but remember, we’re contrarian by nature.
Here’s a clue to help you locate this week’s NEWS24-680 Blue Clue Magnet. Pardon our attempt at verse:
Be still my children and you shall hear,
a clue to the cookies you all hold dear.
Not on a steel bridge nor koi pond doth this magnet lay,
this Blue Clue was placed where children play.
‘Neath Daniel Day Lewis’ favored limb,
the hike to find it will keep you trim.
Look skyward, children, and ye shall see,
a Cookie Magnet good for your Fam-i-lee.
Got it? Find the magnet. Take a selfie on the precise spot (or all bets are off) you found it and send it to us here along with your contact info. And, no, we don’t provide the milk… you’ll have to get that yourself.
NEWS24-680 Cookie Note: Please, two dozen cookies is a lot. Don’t try this all by yourself, invite friends and neighbors over to help! And no fair following us around, John E!
