Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
I'd love to dig up one of these!
Pirate’s treasure haunted my little mind for years after reading stories of pirates. Then after hearing of those ‘metal detectors’ for years I wanted one (never got one).
I hear of treasure hunters who frequent yard sales and bargain stores and find pictures, toys, plates etc worth $$$$$. On the Many lots and land I have bought I have dug up things I recognized, but nothing of value. The last discoveries were antique car window mechanics and bed springs, so rusted they were of no use. And then there are the many ‘old’ bottles I dug up.
I have a dear friend, Daisy. He son is a professor and a REAL archeologist. I did some volunteer work in her home. She has some vases and ‘things’ he has dug up from all over the world, that are worth more than her house, but her son gave them to her and that is worth more than the $$ she could get from sales.” BTW Daisy is 94 and says she has all she needs.
She and her sweet sister of 92 are two of the sweetest girls you could ever know.
I have been thinking. I have never taken part in a real archeological dig, but if I did, I think I would prefer to dig in the USA. Maybe in the upper mid-west.
The digs in Egypt and the Holy Lands are interesting, but I think I would like to know more of what is buried in the USA. We visited a ‘dig’ near Williamsburg, VA. It is interesting what they found there, but to me, if invited to help, I would be thrilled to work in a dig in Montana.
I know Archeologists dig in all countries BUT do scientists dig in every state?
This one ain't my cup a tea, just sayin'.
No matter, would you like to dig? Does it interest you? If so Where?
