Tacoma Tip #6 - Don't Be a Glass Ass

When you find a Monkeyshines glass float kindly take only the one and practice catch and release on any others you come across.

The Monkeyshines tradition is a proud one here in Tacoma. Around every Chinese New Year a secretive group places hundreds of hand-blown glass floats in nooks and crannies around town free for all to hunt down and have. They ask you only take one and leave the rest for others looking or not so they may also enjoy the serendipity of it all.

Though hunters often get up before dawn the morning the Monkeyshines are out to scour town for them the hiders don't make every one too obvious. So as you stroll the sidewalks around Tacoma keep your eyes open because, like the City of Destiny itself, you never know when you might find a hidden gem.

Tacoma Tip is a weekly series for sharing the little tidbits that make living life here, for old timer's and newcomers alike, a little smoother. Have any tips you want shared? Email me!

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
