One woman, lots of paint and hundreds of tiles. If you're here because you found a painted tile, it's yours to keep.

Feisty Little Fred

It's been more than five weeks since Feisty Fred made his way out into the world. I remember it well, as it was a Friday and Feisty Fred and I both went out for happy hour. I went downtown, by the river, but first dropped Fred at Southland as he had an agenda of his own. I went home a few hours after going out, but Fred, well he apparently had a very large night that eventually landed him in a park in Tennessee five weeks later, and he had quite a few adventures along the way. After leaving Southland, he apparently headed to the Fort Lauderdale Firefighters Benevolent Lounge, then off to Station 47, then to the gym for a little workout. After that, he flew in the belly of a 737 to Fort Campbell where he was eventually found by this very observing 8-year-old girl named Sami at Patriots Park. Fred has apparently been hitchhiking (which I warned him to never do), but you know, Fred has a mind of his own. He's kinda crazy like that. Fortunately, he seems to have found someone who loves him. And even though, I thought he only went searching for some tuna fish or something, maybe all he really needed was a good friend. And so, another little tile finds a happy little home. Oddly, Fred is the only tile I ever felt committed to turning into a recurring character on this blog. I almost forgot that. But apparently Fred did not. The person who found him in Fort Lauderdale and took him on some adventures has also promised some pics, so we may soon see a bit more of Fred and the adventures that led up to him being found by Sami. You can read all of the finders' comments under the Found Category on the right. Just click on Feisty Fred. Sami's mom says that Sami has now expressed a desire to paint and hide some tiles of her own. So good luck!!!
