Spent some time with TJ on Sunday and as you all know it rained all day. The conditions were bad but TJ worked hard to dig deep and tried to keep dry dirt on the tables giving us a chance to get a point or two. It was fun digging with fun people. Much to our surprise, Ken's wife fed us all a hot meal at lunch. Thank you, thank you, from a wet and cold digger. O,and Ken, give your sweetheart a big hug from me, for those wonderful cake balls.
Thanks TJ for a great effort in such bad conditions. I'll be back.
Happy Hunting. AL.C
Will do Al. Good finally meeting you. Was an enjoyable, but pointless trip. Think we'd have enjo*** it more if it wasn't for those dang goats. As much green stuff as there was to eat, they chewed on my shirt and everything else they could find.
Don't remember seeing that one point next to the perd. Is it a Carrizo point?
Wife reminded me of it, that's the one TJ brought over to our table, he thought it was a Carrizo at first, then realized it was just a weird break. Those two sure look like Pipe Creek bifaces. I know they're not, just unfinished points, but it would have been neat to find two Pipe Creeks at a time.
Those goats were playing with fire, kept sticking their noses into the barbque pit. One good jump and we could have put the hamburger patties back in the ice chest.
Hal, we checked out the weather forecast Saturday night. Sunday was clear and cool. Stopped in at the local convenience store and picked up the Sunday paper as we were leaving. Sat in the truck at the dig site while it was raining and looked at the forecast in the paper. Clear and cool. Somebody didn't tell the Rain Gods to watch the news or read the paper. Think the Indians had better luck reading the weather by studying the birds and bugs. Goats didn't mind the rain. Oh, and the two brokes weren't worth posting, one tip and one early stemmed base. Figured those goats sticking there noses in a lit barbque pit would look better. Using it as wall paper on the pc.
Here's the best we could come up with. No great finds but already had hamburger patties made up. If I'd known the meat was on the hoof and trying to jump into the fire, we'd of left the hamburgers in the ice chest.
Nothing but sunny and bright here Hal. Our next drop of rain should be around Christmas if things are normal. High eighties every day, perfect for arrowhead hunting but the arrowheads are in Texas. Going out today with the metal detector and see what I've missed. Been awhile, to hot. Time to get at it. I'm coming back your way as soon as I figure out how to read the Texas weather report.
Happy Hunting. AL.C
We can bet TJ & Nach are actively looking for new prospects. Remember the days of " look at this Andice "
On this mornings' WX reports, they are comparing the unusually early snow in the NE as being compared to the the El Nino effect snow at this same month in 07 there.
Maybe rust belt diggers will have to switch over to goat farming !
