where's the close up pics!!
Wow Hal, Are there any left ? Nice job !
Man o Man I enjoyed the dig with you guys on Sat!! CONGRATS on your finds both of you. Hal that Perd was a true SMOKER!!!!!!! I will try and post some close up pics later. The dig was a fair, honest dig, in my opinion. A solid A dig, with a lot of good folks and some really nice artifacts. A special thanks to TJ and Cyrus for their efforts. They both worked their butts off to bring the points to the diggers. None of this staying out of an area or bringing dirt from a dry hole, if you wanted dirt from the bird point area you got it, if you wanted dirt from the Archaic area you got it. Simply put, I was happy with the dig and the effort.
Thanks again TJ, see ya soon, like Tuesday:)
I cant get pics to post. If someone will send me an email Ill send them to you for firstname.lastname@example.org

Looks like I'm snarling in that pic. Man, Hal, you always manage to get me at the worst time.
Still, those are some great pic's, even one with Flicker trying to sneak off the side and out of camera range.

Montell Pat did his share of work to push some of Palmer's ranch through a screen. TJ checking Pointfinders screening style.
Mrs Travis, Lucky Lacy joined in at the end of the day just to get the job done quicker...
Her reward for a hard days shopping in Fredricksburg was to be a dinner at a posh restaurant. She already had on her evening attire
GeeTen & Gman slaving away at the neighboring pavilion
Many hands make light work. Look at that pile of dirt,no need for high heels to reach the table top.
BINGO...true to her name of ' Lucky '...a big Perd was found..
AND....It was already washed
Nice show Hal, thanks for sharing!
Hal, that's an awesome post. Great pics. I wish I had waited to make my video now. I would have copied your pics and uploaded them to the video. I'll remember next time we dig. Awesome shots Hal! I will have to show Lacy that she is on an OFFICIAL AUSTIN DIGGERS post...
thanks Hal for the sweet post!!!They are knocking them out again today at Pipe Creek with TJ.
Dam, that took a long time to get down to this new posting.
