Here are a couple more photos of those blade/arrowhead thingies.
Their 3D image doesn't translate well with my photography. I put
that granite-looking thing in too, because it is OH SO PRETTY
with that white patch on the end. It is sparkly in the sun. I would
use it for a whacker of some kind, because it's heavy.
I am not going to post my hoe-looking or scraper-shaped or
round flat sandstone collection at this time. I will wait for the next
big rain and see what washes up, or we will get a little spade to dig
in the creek bottom. The bed is big flat rocks, with crevices. I'd like
to dig out the gravel and see what's under it. Hopefully, not a snake.
The water is only about 4 inches deep right now.
While I was taking the pics, #1 son ran out to get his treasure, that
broken thingy in the middle. It looks like the tip broke off of a
bigger object. It is sharper than that brown one on the left. Even
though its point looks curved, there is a ridge that is sharp. It also
has a pink look to the inside of it, like that white one has on the back.
That thingy on the bottom right looks like some kind of hatchet to
me. The color never comes out right in the pictures. It is flat on one
side, and kind of triangular on the other.
I'm not really the color of boiled lobster. It was hot out in the sun.
You can almost see the shape of this thing here.
OK, I'm done with that. It's not something I'm an expert on, like
the Gummi Mary. Or Sonic Cherry Diet Coke. Or scratch-off
lottery tickets. Which reminds me...I forgot to tell you about the
latest lottery adventure. Since you've been so patient with the rocks
in my head, I'll share it with you.
We have not been winning at lottery. Our stash of $93 in winning
tickets had dwindled to the last $18. I told the boys if we didn't
win something on Friday, we were going to stop buying them for
a while, until our luck changed again. We had been on a streak of
19 tickets without a winner. That'll learn us! We were riding high
after beating the odds with 3 out of 4 winners a couple times.
That's how we amassed our wealth. So out of that string of 19
losers, I had two left to scratch on Friday. It was a $2 Block
Bingo. I hardly ever win at them. $5 was the most I'd won, and
a $2. That was it. But I keep buying them because nobody has
won any of the $30,000 or $25,000, or $10,000 prizes.
You could grow a long gray beard playing these Block Bingo
tickets. You have to scratch off 30 numbers, and check 5
bingo cards. They are tedious. So I got done, and on the 2nd
bingo card, I had all 4 numbers in the box. WooHoo! It was
a $100 winner! Actually, it was $102, but I don't know why.
So of course we are going to buy more tickets. Not all at
once, of course.
That's all the news from the Mansion today. Thanks to Scribalist
for deciphering my rocks. Now I'm off to work on the next task
for Big Blogger 2. I need my binoculars and a pair of shoes that
doesn't squeak. Hmm...who will I chose to visit? That's your
warning, Cyberhousemates. Pull the shades. Lock the doors.
Hillbilly Mom is out and about.
