This was the piece I found when my father lived off of Burson Drive in the Bear Creek subdivision in Manchaca...I found it in a little patch of woods next to the house, just laying there in 1979. True "ghost" story, about that same time I was in those woods sneaking a cigarette (yes, I thought I was a cool teenager), and I felt a strong shove to my left shoulder...I thought I was caught! I turned around and no one was there...!
The piece below is the first piece I found on this property in Bastrop County about 1984. I had no idea what it was, only that it helped me cut the string in my garden and I popped it in my pocket. An old guy that worked at Travis State School with me at the time told me that the black marks were "pitch" used to secure the rock to a stick.
This piece is cool. I don't know what it is only that it seems made to fit the hand and it looks like there is some pitting on the end.
Did I tell y'all I also found what looks like a fossil bone...maybe buffalo. I found it when we first moved here about 30 years ago. It's around here somewhere...it looks like this:
