Have you seen the 'Dude'?

Back in 2004, the Geege and I had a trip around the world. We covered Ireland, the East Coast of Canada, New York and Denver, New Zealand and Fiji, visiting long lost friends and attending a wedding en route. It was the best fun. Our babymoon, as it turned out.

We took a travelling companion with us. We called her the 'Dude' and she looked like this:


Here she is on top of Centrepoint (in a book)

When we got to New York, after climbing the Empire State Building together


On top of NYC
 we decided to bury her in Central Park. We had friends who were travelling to NYC later that year and they promised to 'pick her up' for us. We hadn't fathomed that Central Park would be covered in snow in late November, so their attempt to recover her was unsuccessful.

And so, the Dude has been left in Central Park, near the Alice in Wonderland statue,



behind the fence to the right in this picture



buried approximately 5cm deep, somewhere in this photo.

Do you think you can help me find her?

Are you from NY? or do you know someone who is?

Do you think you (or your friend) could take the time to pop down to the Alice in Wonderland fountain and take a look for the 'Dude'?

Take a photo of her for me and post it on your blog and let me know that she is safe and sound?

And then, when you have your next travel adventure, take her with you and bury her somewhere.

Let people know where she is so that someone else may go and find her and continue her journey.

That was our intention with the Dude. She was to become a travel companion for others too. Only the New York winter beat us and so she has lay dormant for 6 years.

That is a lot of beauty sleep for an Hawaiian princess.

PS Many thanks to Design it Chic for my lovely photo borders. I followed her tutorial and managed to make myself some poo-brown techie heaven!

Love those borders. Let's hope someone finds the Dude for you. They'd best get in quick before the snow arrives again...

What an awesome trip!!! Some colleagues and I once took a crazy little stuffed chicken around NYC, making pictures...although we didn't leave him in Central Park. If only I had known then that he could have met a "Dude", we would have gone digging, for sure! Hahahaha!

And your poo-brown borders look great, by the way! :)
