Some people have been saying that SH was not actually at digfest at all this year.
My POA certificate is on the left side eighth row of pics up from the very BOTTOM of the front page
Digfest 09 icon.
Considering that the posting is practically a deathbed effort, very good job.
As far as " getting with Hal later and putting names to the pictures ", , , , FORGET IT. . . . .
You know who you are, I dont fancy sitting down in front of a PC screen real close with someone thats
got the Plauge !
Here's some general notes that you can mentally transfer over to the front page pics,;
Happy Birthday again KATHERYN , nice pressie.
CHRIS & BRIDGET, I know who you are, I wrote your names down.
Special family recognition to; ; ; MIKE, TERESA, JEREMY and SKEETER.
They had the right attitude to inject some needed humor into the tough hobby of digging. They
"planted " the holloween skull for anyone visiting them at their dig area. Laughter really amplifies in
those deep drainage cuts.
ALSO . . . I commend them for digging expertise. Working as a family, I met them [ and the skull ]on Saturday in a secret select cut below an old camp.
Starting at the bottom and working upslope, pushing behind them some of the ugliest material a digger ever saw. Huge boulders, Old throw, entire trees originally pushed over the edge, " new growth" ground
brush. In general, a long ignored area that was covered over before it was properly dug. . . .
They were doing very well.
While putting words, names and WooHoos between the just posted pictures may never happen. . . .
If anyone reading this has a picture on two they would like to have imortalised forever on the digfest 09 board. . . PLEASE EMAIL THEM TO MLLE.
"End of dig" pic of all the finds could never have happened. . . over 100 people standing there with their hands out !
Only Pat patroled the entire camp site recording finds, maybe she could share just a few of at least those spectacular needle tipped birdies.
I threatened to a get a pic of black belt surfacer ROY from E TX. . . By Saturday camping time, he had a half a pocket of surface finds. Best a slightly damaged yellow, shiney flint Gower. [ We also dug side by side for a few hours Saturday and both
didnt even find a flake with work on it.]
I may order two AUSTIN DIGGER magnetic signs for Difest 10 to put on the doors of BIG RED !
Ahh. . . more proof ! I was just cruising through all those pics again more slowly. . .
I found a second pic of ME [ with my best party hat on] Put the marker on the right of the page down at about the 60% area, right side, next to the pic of the lucky guy that chose the tools on the big yellow board !
