There will be more factual considerations for you to consider......hey it's ok to have stinking thinking...we all suffer this at times, hang in there crazyfamily.

Oh boy! Don’t you have that wrong.

Have you ever heard of Tail Hook? They were aviators and all Officers. About 100 of them. All officers and not a one of them a gentleman.

You shouldn’t watch so much TV.

Oh, and what about Generals being relieved of their duty by telling bedside secrets to their girlfriends?

I stopped believing that there was a bronze box filled with gold coins and other items six months after I got caught up in this whole thing - but I truly believe that there is a story yet to be told and it will be one for the ages!

That's why I'm still here. I'm part of that story. We all are. I've played the part of the lunatic. I've played the part of the believer. I've even played the part of the victor, in my own mind. I've done my level-headed best not to play the part of the foil, and I don't want to be the villain.

Title to the gold. The opportunity to write the story as one sees fit. There's a song by Charlene D'Angelo titled "I've Been To Paradise"

The irony is not lost on me.

Thank you. That’s quite a provocative post. Care to elaborate?

I support MY argument, Chris Yates. It may coincide with others'.


There is a line in that song where she sang "I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece..." so, naturally, I wonder if she still holds the memories of a nice vacation.
Symbolism.

He already has. He’s hoping to be forgiven of his foolish prank. And he thinks God will forgive him, because “that’s what He does.”

There are MANY hints he’s given that there is no physical chest out there. CF has every right to question. I question, too.

“Enlightenment” seems to be a key theme. To be enlightened is to be AWAKE. With all those references about sleep and dreams, and many others about coffee, I would not be surprised if his message to everyone searching was to “Wake up and small the coffee.”

And don’t be a sucker.

I don't believe it.

I know Forrest has his flaws as I have first hand experience with them (his flaws). Forrest dislikes me so much that it has been rumored that Ricky and I are the only two people he ever tried to have banned from cc. I don't know that Forrest actually tried to get us banned but the rumor is out there. I read it at Harry's.

Here's the thing. When I looked directly into the eyes of his daughter, I saw a happy well-rounded individual, not someone raised by a dark sadist. When I look at those pictures of all his smiling happy kids and grandkids I don't see dark sadism. Someone who just had his 65th anniversary is unlikely to qualify as "dark and sadistic."

If you have all the info you keep claiming you have why don't you just put it out there? Unless and until you do, you're nothing more than one more troll like all the other trolls.

I mentioned something to Zoe once at F’s home about F and the chase. Remember that look she gave the guy who asked if the treasure was real? Like “Oh my God, Will this foolish chase ever end?” Or “If you only knew who my dad truly was, you would run far away from this stupid chase.”

It was a look like that. Before she was all smiles...until the chase was mentioned.

And I know certain members of his family have pleaded with him to end it.

But F is very, very stubborn. So he will wait until a life is blown away by a shotgun, or wait until one searcher beats another into a coma. Well, I would say, that’s too late. You don’t wait until it happens (and the way things are now, it will happen), you take some precautionary measures to ensure your legacy isn’t smeared with the blood of lives lost.

And what about Randy, Paris, and Eric Ashby, as well as the others? Forrest, if you had known these good men would die chasing your folly, would you have hidden the treasure? Or are their lives expendable, like you imply of everyone in the chase by implying you will let one get murdered before you end it. Do these lives mean nothing to you?

How is it right to say that a searcher must be murdered, like a freaking sacrifice, for you to end it?

My ex husband was a highly decorated USAF officer that served time in Afghanistan. He turned out to not be trustworthy or honorable, at all. (Edit: I’m removing what he did after someone wisely mentioned in a PM that I shouldn’t give out such private information. Many people already know about it, but I think the advice was smart.)

RE: It's Time To Come To Terms...
Mindy,
With all due respect to you, it's very difficult for me to digest your bill of fair you are dishing out. Essentially you are indicating by Hints, Forrest made, that you question whether or not in fact, he hid a treasure chest out there.

Are you going to stop looking for the treasure chest now based on Forrest hints ?

Mindy,
I'm extremely sorry for you of what your husband did. But can you honestly base a personal incident that happened to you (unfortunately) color your opinion on Air Force Officers ?
