*Hand*

I’ve decided to rename Finger Island into Hand Island, with the attached lake it dominates likewise turning into Hand Lake. I do this because there’s clearly not one finger-like extension projecting from the main bulk of the island, but *two*. My reasoning is that the other 3 fingers are represented but hidden, perhaps clustered together like this…

… or maybe even this.

There’s deeper reasons for the name change, however. When feeling the initial desire to turn Finger Island into Hand Island because of the two fingers conundrum outlined above, my mind also turned back to Herman Park and a projected *fourth* lake to be created by Lisa The Vegetarian there called, well, Hand Lake — to complement the perhaps already created Heart Lake, Head Lake, and then soon to be created Health Lake, the last of the four. This duplicates the composition of the 4Hs in the 4H club pledge and famous 4 leaf clover emblem: head, heart, hands and health. There we have a plural form of the same word we’ve applied to the Blue Mountain pool: “hand” to “hands”. But the thing is, Hand (or Hands) Lake was reportedly the only one of the 4 never fulfilled by Lisa V.

“Thanks for that information, Hucka D.,” I said. He smiled. He went to the shelf and removed a red book. Small — no title on the spine or on the front. He opened to page 156.

Noticing this I said, “I’ve already received that message.”

“Received it more,” he came back levelly. He continued to flip through it. “Have you read about Drink Lake yet? Fascinating. You know Lisa the Vegetarian was given Hand Lake and then decided to expand it through this book. The book is the father. Norris was a father; Anderson was a father. Together they created a memory pool of Sandusky County and Clyde extending almost from the years 1860 to 1900, a two score. Booger was told of this.”

McCartney charges Lisa the V. to center the US of A in Arkansas, and kind of tells her how to do it. She creates Head Lake, Heart Lake, Hand Lake, and then Health Lake spinning the opposite direction. To control the spin she must buy all of neighboring Wealthy Mountain — actually Health Lake and Wealthy Mountain are part of one complex, along with Wysei [ which you haven’t found yet]. Then she expanded Hand Lake through the TILE Creek, which was showing off her genius for the first, real time.

bb:

Real genius for the first time, you mean.

Hucka D. (continuing):

That expansion is very important. You must study it this spring. For without that expansion, Herman Park does not exist. All would be in the aether still.

bb:

I will. I promise.

bb:

Who are the singers?

Hucka D.:

They are the genius of Lisa the Vegetarian. They are the expansion of Hand Lake. They are TILE Creek. They will protect.

In addition, Lisa the Vegetarian had several June 2015 posts devoted to her after she topped the voting in the Mystenopolis town deity contest. As far as I know she still holds this rank, even though I, through Baker Bloch, soon left the Mysten sim to return to the Rubi Woods.

So what about this expansion of Hand Lake into TILE Creek, extending from Hand Spring to Drink Lake and a bit beyond?

Well, let’s first explain I also found out this morning that Hand Lake (former Finger Lake once more) lies directly north of Drink Lake, and both bodies of water are sources of drinking water for their respective towns of Blue Mountain and Boulder. *Both* are drinking lakes. In the below 2 images from GoogleEarth, the position of The Finger in Hand Lake is placemarked by a yellow pin, and then a corresponding spot directly south of it in the middle of Drink Lake is similarly marked with a yellow pin. Toggle back and forth to see the overlap. The pin locations are less than 4 miles apart. I was quite surprised to find out how close the 2 pools were.

These are my preliminary thoughts:

The Finger formation of Hand Lake *has* to be the working of Lisa The Vegetarian. She reinforced this through the creation of a second, smaller finger-like extension from the same dominating lake island. She clearly wanted *me* to understand that this was the legendary Hand Lake, *created* but then *displaced* into the Blue Mountain area from the Boulder area. She displaced it directly north of the lake she created *in place* of it near Boulder, or the considerably larger Drink Lake. The Mmms moved in sometime after this. Hermania was created sometime after this. Mossmen learned of the location, and Herman Park as a whole.

Last thoughts for now:

Overlapping Hand Lake and Drink Lake pins and replacing land south of former with south of latter gives the following image, where the two towns of Blue Mountain and Boulder effectively touch in the general pin regions. The 2 town water plants are also obviously a focus of the overlap; they’re also directly north-south of each other, and also “touch” boundaries in the below image.

If we eliminate land *north* of Hand Lake and replace it with land north of Drink Lake instead, we get the following, with the disappearance of both towns and setting the joined drinking lakes in a relative wilderness setting….

New territory discovered not once but twice yesterday (Sunday). We start in Boulder — or more precisely on the edge between Boulder and Herman Park — where for the first time I poked around the mouth of TILE Creek as it empties into a fork of the Old River (ironically one of the newest rivers in not only the United States but the world). The mouth is found just off the short driveway down to the Boulder Water Treatment Plant from the main highway. Plant employees have apparently created steps down to the stream juncture; a kind of miniature park. Perhaps they go there to eat and relax at lunch and on breaks.

This is the small gorge that the Old River fork runs through just before encountering TILE Creek. Possibilities exist here for future toy happenings. I was happy to find it. Civilization lies all around this pocket of gorge-ous wilderness. 🙂

A small but very sandy beach just downstream from the TILE-Old conjunction.

IMG_0019smaller

This hemlock towers over it — obvious ruler. This is yet another spot that could serve as a toy happening.

IMG_0020smallest

A green-ing island at the Mouth of TILE. Green Isle I suppose is as good a name as any.

IMG_0027smaller

Then I decided to hike in neighboring Frank Park this same day and found another new and most likely more important discovery: a whole *’nother section of Whitehead Crossing*, effectively blocked off from the main part. That’s why I didn’t find it until yesterday. I will definitely be heading back to this area sometime during the next handful of days. For now I’ll say that Green Stream, Whitehead X-ing’s largest water flow, cascades through the western edge of the open area. This region has also been called Red Head in the past, and supposedly where Mossman settled in ancient times after finding the Korean Channel through the old Spoon Fork Portal System. But Red Head remained only conjecture until yesterday.

Interesting rocks at the top of one of the several Red Head cascades. I’ll most likely create a map of Red Head sometime this spring, when I gather more information. First off, I have to figure out an *easier way into it* (!).

IMG_0032smaller

This seems to represent a very important rock toward the northern limit of the cascade series. Additional info soon (once more).

IMG_0034smaller

Many interesting features in the cascades region.

IMG_0045smaller

And this is a shallow pool of water found nearby which I also hadn’t known about before. Most likely it will garner a name soon as well. But as hard as I tried, all paths heading toward the main part of Whitehead Crossing evaporated from this direction. I could *see* the main part through the trees and rhododendron — just couldn’t reach it.

Rotted tree near the pool.

Another nifty Red Head rock on Green Stream, this one toward the southern end of the blocked off region. South Rock?

Saturday Photos 01

This is a shot of downtown Notherton, a former Mossman hot bed of action and adventure. Now deserted, supposedly. Main Mossman (Mossmain?) Gene Fade has stated he use to work in its metropolitan area in a 5 sided mall managing a cappery.* I believe his store sold the equivalent of our baseball caps, or at least that was the most popular item. He mentioned a game like baseball, but with extra bases and some other different stuff. Have to look all that up from the Baker Blinker Blog again; the game of Whack-Bat from Fantastic Mr. Fox comes to mind. So much to comb through in these blogs now (!).

Notherton is in Frank Park across The Greenway from nearby Mocksity, another important Mossman community.

IMG_0057smaller

And this is the road leading to Gene Fade’s Mountain to the west, where he was born and raised before moving to Notherton. This is the very highway Gene Fade walked all the way from Jupiter Rock to downtown Notherton after a critical argument with his parents about the TILE religion. You see, Gene Fade desired to become a Tilist and his parents disapproved. He went back to Jupiter Rock, but it was never the same for him. He had opened the box to discover the rest of his life.

IMG_0065smallest

This probably has nothing to do with Gene Fade or Mossmen, but comes from the center of real life community Boulder, surprisingly enough. It looks like it was shot in the middle of nowhere. Boulder has created a new shortcut from its main highway into downtown, and this barren spot is one of the results. Congratulations Boulder and happy motoring to ya.

IMG_0066smaller

Another Boulder shot. You can see TILE Mountain in the background, also known as Yards Mountain to you non-Tilists out there.

IMG_0071smaller

A northern Boulder house with 4 birdhouses painted the colors of TILE: red, blue, green, yellow. Is this the home of a fellow Tilist, then? I believe they would probably have a good view of TILE Mountain from their back windows. Hmmm. Landscaping elements from this house are also found here.

IMG_0076smaller

Bottle tree, also of TILE colors, found in the same yard. Yards?

IMG_0083smaller

A larger rock jutting from the rhododendron just across the road. Another TILE sacred spot? That was my thought at the time of the picture snapping. I couldn’t find a way to get to it, however, through the tangle of bushes. Perhaps I’ll attempt again soon.

* A note about the name Mossmain: Hucka D. has indicated to me this is a title bestowed to actor Gene Fade for work done on the Salad Bar Action-Adventure movies. It stands for what you would presume: he has become the *main* Mossman, the one most talked about and beloved. The Salad Bar Jack flicks are just that popular.

Back Outdoors (!) 02

Heading toward Head Lake from the west, passing through the northern fringe of Boulder (town).

IMG_0078smaller

Interesting landscaping along the way on private property. I’m taking notes on stuff like this for potential future landscaping around our Middletown home we plan to build about 7-10 years down the road.

IMG_0088smaller

Barrier trees fronting a pond complete with 2 actual and functional swans.

IMG_0101smaller

I startled these matching black and brown dogs while hiking past them, unnoticed for a minute. They were busy playing in a pile of mulch. But boy did they became more interested in me and what I was doing in a heartbeat! Dogs are kind of fun at times. And funny.

IMG_0110smaller

This is an orange leech stream oozing from Head Lake Dam.

IMG_0116smaller

This is the falls caused by the spillover of same. Quite pretty. I don’t have a name for the water drop yet. How about Head Falls? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsL_JDtVbww

IMG_0122smaller

Lone island of Head Lake. There’s a story there as well. A kind of spooky one, if my memory is to be at all trusted.
