I'm BAAAAAAACK Fred. Where are you? This is not funny. This is the longest game of hide and seek you've ever played. We give up, so come out, come out wherever you are.

Loving regards,
Mother Mary

Thought I'd try a little tough love ;-) .

No sign of Fred in Boston. From where I was seated at the side of the pit I could see a little behind the side screen, at some point during the show two crew members were there with a camera taking pictures of something but as far as I could see it was not Fred. :(

Have they become bored with our obsession? I so hope not.

Hi my darlin' little Fred,

Well, I was at the fabulous Red Rocks concert on June 4th, and I know you were there too! Since I was sitting sort of in the center but a little to the right there was once (during "your" song) that I thought I may have seen you over in the sidelines. But, then again that was probably just my imagination as it was sort of cool and a little windy and I think instead you were comfy inside one of those wonderful dressing rooms that were partly rocks! Maybe you had your Tigers t-shirt on ;-)

I know you have your passport for Europe and I am so so excited for you and your person (and their friends!). Let your wonderful "person" know that we would love to see a picture of you before you cross the pond!

All my love to you and those who are your "surrogate" family!

Aunt Di :D

ps...Fred...tell your person that we REALLY REALLY think the world of him. All of us. Your "person" has become part of our extended family and all our positive energies and prayers are with him!

Hello everyone! This is a very cute thread. I'm lucky I had seen it before I went to the Red Rocks concert otherwise it would not have occurred to me to take this photo. I can only upload a small version as an attachment here but I will include a direct link to an external site so you can view the original size. It was taken with an iPhone so the original isn't even that big but this proves that Fred did, indeed, attend the Red Rocks show. I was seated in the 3rd row, slightly off to the left (Webb sisters side). Seriously, this actually happened. There one minute, then gone the next. It was 8:04pm, just moments before the show started. I saw Fred sitting with his back to me on the left side on the stage (is this 'stage right'?). He was sitting with a few other smaller stuffed friends. I took just this one photo and a few moments later looked up and he was gone. Maybe he was getting ready for the show and had a better seat in mind?

Anyway, here is the photo:

Hope you all get a kick out of it!

Just as I was getting ready to close the book on the little critter -- a sighting! Thank you novabella.

novabella,

Where are they exactly. I have searched and searched your photo, but I can't see them :( .

Maybe it's one of the "Fred slept [sat] here" photos ;-) ? I can't get the larger version, but can't find anything in the smaller one, for sure.

Sorry that last one was so large! Hope this one is not. The two little ones on Fred's right are also monkeys from what I could tell. This was clear from where I was sitting but this is the best photo I could get. Like I said, strangely, right after I took this photo Fred disappeared and the other monkeys remained.

Please someone correct me if I am mistaken. This is Fred, no?

Geez, I can't tell. Mommy Mary ought to be able to clarify it, though. You have the eyes of an eagle to have spotted him/whomever in the first place :shock: !

Geepers novabella, I can't tell either. It could very likely be. Maybe in preparation for another photo post? There is a person in front of them. Be still my heart - a photo may be coming!!

novabella, why didn't we meet? We were so close and yet so far. Didn't you see all of us with our name tags - yes we did that :roll: :lol: (they just about begged for other forum members to spot us and come over and say hello) - in Row 2 and then moved up to Row 1 - jumping and yelling - yes we did that too :oops: :lol: - ?

Best regards,
Mary
