    we of course, award favorite points to those
    geocaches which we think deserve them.

    Water Tower in Nassau

    And, as some of you know, if we find a special geocache that really
    makes us smile, we award it the "COVETED" SNAP!!!

    Then, at the beginning of the next year (right about now),
    Nana & I sit down and review those winners and select
    one very special geocache and award it the....
