What about "THAT" Apron?

Ok, I’ve got to ask……..

I’m fairly new here, but have seen references to the “Traveling Apron” and a, from what I gather, untimely demise? I saw pictures in the photo gallery. The concept is simple enough…..a single apron that gets mailed to a DC user, a picture is taken, and then it is mailed to the next user. Cool idea. Seemed to work…..for a while?

But what happened to it? It seemed to have died an early death some time ago?

keltin, it's a really, really sad and unfortunate story. You can read about it here. Make sure you have some time because it takes a while. Don't think it's going to be revived because of the outcome. Great idea, but messed up because of a "bad apple."

To my knowledge, no, the "bad apple" didn't post again nor did he respond to multiple PM messages by other members imploring him to return the apron without the attendant goodies. Truly a sad ending to a lovely story.

OK, I’ve read that thread before, but it seems there are parts missing. There is so much talk about a “change of heart” and suddenly standing up to the right thing”, and trips to the wood shed (a good southern colloquialism by the way). So, what is missing….was it a hostage situation….were there nasty PMs that we can’t see?

enough time has to pass before revenge is obvious, and the dish turns cold.

It's unfortunate but why not start up another apron and continue where we left off? What do you all think?

I think that would be really cool but perhaps once bitten twice shy?

I was so sad, just when it was going to cross the waters to Europe then, 'bad apple' took it and run.
