  1. Don’t think it’s his office. I thought you were better than me at looking at backgrounds Dal(knowing where I was in that one picture).

    We only rabbit ears the one’s we love.

    • Forrest said it was his office. Who am I to change words in his scrapbook…
      “Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely, “and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”
      ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

  2. The bunny ears are a clue? I thought that just meant that one thinks like an alien on another planet.

  3. Definatly not his office…lol. It is a reception hall for sure. I know those gaudy chairs anywhere.

    • Tracy-
      Forrest has several grandchildren. I believe the bunny ears or possibly devil horns are the the artistic endeavor of one of his grandsons and not a granddaughter as the photo caption insists. But understand that Dal wrote that caption thinking it was his granddaughter and did not learn until later that it was a grandson….

      • Yes, Dal, those fingers are “hints of riches new”. There are subtle hints like this throughout the scrapbooks (IMO, of course), but you have to know what you’re looking for. (wink)

  4. Writers sometimes need a change of scenery
    in order to keep the words flowing. An establishment
    can be referred to as “an office”…
    Just my 3-cents from a fellow writer.

  5. Rabbit Ear’s Pass? Or, ask a child and they’ll tell you the truth? I wonder if the grandchild is anything like their grandfather, full of adventure? I think we can definitely see they have his sense of humor. 🙂

    • Zaph, I Promise I’m not virtually stalking you.

      It’s winter search season and I’m taking time to return to early scrapbooks.

      White swan’s feathers are a great thought. It could also be a fun reference to ff’s good friend Suzanne Somers being a Playboy bunny. We forget they have a 30-40 year friendship AND she penned the introduction to TFTW.

    • Hi 42: in my opinion, Suzanne Somers is an important hint to one of the clues, and SHE was the source of the unexpected clue in TFTW. After all, Forrest had complete control over everything else — including the map.
