I used to have a little green rubber frog (2 inch) as my sig item... I would write "Coast2Coast2Coast and Zoe Dog" on the bottom...
Today I received this email from a cacher in Ottawa Ontario, Canada
LOL, I had a chuckle seeing your name as dropping my CCC coin. Don't know if I told you this, but you guys cost me a toilet. Yep you read it right. My children found a rubber frog of yours 2 years ago in firebox geocaching in Ottawa. Well, last year, my son, age 2 at the time, flushed the frog down the toilet where he got stuck. Trust me when I say we TRIED EVERYTHING to get the frog out, (5 adults, 2 professionals, 4 kids over 4 days) so we bought a new toilet and became experts at removing toys from the toilet as the frog was the first but not the last. Luckily we could get everything else out.
Thanks for the laugh at the memory,
....... I asked if they minded if I shared the emails...
They sent this ....
Go right ahead, we have had a great laugh about it here.
The neighbour kids loved watching the adults trying to get the frog out of the toilet when it was on the front lawn. We had tools out, tried a hose to flush it out, we tried everything we could think of the professionals we called in were stumped too after spending hrs each trying to get it out. Let's just say we will never forget your name and the frog. If we see another one in a cache we will pass on trading for it (No offence I hope)
oh and the new toilet cost me a couple hundred dollars so I think the little frog has become the most expensive trade item I have ever had.
