CLUE TWO ADDED! Scroll to the bottom of the blog, check out the picture and the hint, then post your guess in the comments! Remember to post the location of our little cairn AND include the city and state.

Do you remember that game from WAY long ago ---- like 15 years???
Well it is a kid's game; you get clues and then you guess where the little Cairn of the game is hiding. (The last name is San Diego because Southern California is where our Cairn Rescue was born, and it is near where our founder lives ... and if they all had the last name Potter, the game would have to be Quiddich and Cairns on broomsticks won't fly!!!!!) Now that you have all stopped groaning at my little joke, the first person to guess correctly where the little imp is hiding, gets a prize.
Can you guess where our little cairn is hiding today? Take a little peek.....Where could he be???? Now you have to guess exactly where she/he is, you can guess "The planet Earth” and while that guess may be correct, it won't win... On the other hand, we are going to be kind of fair with this, so you won't have to say for example "under Governor Schwarzenegger's couch in his spare bedroom," because even if that is where he or she is, all of you would not be expected to recognize the location of the picture. And I kind of doubt The Governator's security detail would let us in to take the picture in the first place!!
Add your guesses to the comments section of the blog, and if you can't guess, come back tomorrow for the second clue.
"Wait a minute," you say "second clue? “ What about the first clue?” Well it’s on this page.
Good luck, Deirdre and Lovie in Iowa
Questions are welcomed ... some may or may not be answered. This is a Mystery Game... so answers that help you solve the Puzzle will be politely ignored. Questions of a general nature will be answered to the best of Lovie's ability.
Comments are not only encouraged, but solicited. All questions and or comments must be posted to the BLOG so that everyone gets the exact same information.
One important point; this is the first time we have done something like this. It is entirely possible, that due to our own learning curve, we mess something up. So we would ask you to have patience with us if this happens. Please remember THIS IS A GAME ... it is supposed to be fun. If you have suggestions for next time, please feel free to email us. We may or may not act on your suggestion, but we will read them. Thanks for your understanding.
Now, here's the fine print: The first person who correctly identifies and posts the location, including city and state, as a blog comment wins! The winner will be posted on the blog and must contact Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network by emailing CPCRN-Media@cairnrescue.com within 3 days of the game completion or the prize is forfeited. If the correct location is not posted by Monday afternoon at 4:00 PM CDT, the game will end and the correct location will be posted. Be sure to check back for addition clues and to see if you are the WINNER!"
OK. But what will we win?? The Grand Prize is a thirty dollar gift Certificate to Col. Potter's Cairn Mall. All participants will win a "Congratulations and Thank You for playing!" prize. It comes in two parts. Part one: you get to scritch your dog and give belly rubs. Part two: well, you get to play again in about two weeks. Talk about excitement.....
CLUE TWO: Some people who went where our little cairn is, went via "The Green Monster"
CLUE THREE: Some of the people who went there dreamed about it first.
