But by then petty theft was the last thing I had on my mind.”

You've given us a real challenge!

Have fun with the ONBC treasure hunt, Zoners--you don't need to be a Noodlemantra :noodlemantra: to play, since all the answers are in the ONBC Archives! :ONBC:

Happy hunting! :sherlockholmes:

:balloons: Congratulations to ONBC on their 5th Birthday!

Liz and DITHOT, you've done a fantastic job! We are all so proud of ONBC! :balloons:

:applause:

Thanks, PTP. I can't believe it's been 5 years. And what a ride! It's been an amazing and wonderful time of my life. I'm looking forward to the next 5. :bounce:

Wow! We're going to have to get both Pintel and Ragetti to help with the digging on these questions. Image

Thank heavens for the SEARCH feature on the board! :grin:

Now there's a hint... ;-)

It doesn't seem like it could possibly have been 5 years! Thanks for the well wishes!

The SEARCH feature? :perplexed:

What a diabolical thought, Theresa! Very clever of you . . . .

What I find unbeleavable is that at least some of you, at least at some point, knew the answers to all those questions! I've never seen a more educational board in my life, and although I rarely make it to the end of the books in time to participate in the discussions I really enjoy reading all your thoughts very much. So :balloons: :ONBC: and :congrats: and :thanks!: and :applause2: Liz and DITHOT and all Noodlemantras!

That's very inspirational! I'm always amazed by our members who can converse so fluently (and read so extensively) in English when it is not their native language. Some Zoners speak so many languages, they could be international diplomats. :hatsoff:

teacher, you are way ahead of me! :lol:

I agree, ptp, I'm always very impressed with our Zoners that can read and discuss our books in their second language.

DITHOT, unlike you, I don't read every book on the schedule, so I'm definetely not ahead of you :lol:
