    A couple of interesting finds ....no Ag / Au, but still interesting

    Hi

    Haven't been getting out very much lately due to ankle problems caused by sand flea/ sand fly bites in this humid weather.

    The fleas/ flies arrive in droves at the beaches here, and before one realizes it, the attack has occurred and the itching has begun.

    Tons of Calamine lotion applications have helped, so this morning I went out for a couple of hours.


    I contacted the phone number on the bird band in hopes of learning the origin of the bird's flight, and after checking their files the Bird Band agency ( Arizona) informed me that the bird belonging to the band had been put to flight on June30, 2006 in a city just a few miles from the beach where I found the band...he didn't fly too far.

    They could not tell me what the specie of the bird was...too bad; I would like to know.

    The agency will be sending me a Certificate of Appreciation for reporting the finding of the band, and said that the Specie might be printed on the Certificate..I'll post it if I am told of this.


    Here's pics, and a link to info about the "G Man" ring ( partial ring...band is missing :>(


    The toy car may be lead...maybe a "Tootsie" toy


    Old Vintage Original 1930s Premium G-MAN Ring

    Thanks for looking at my post

    Interesting finds, Lorraine!

    You know the bird might have migrated and returned to the same spot (more than once).

    I found a pelican bird band earlier this year...but it was still attached to the poor dead bird. I tried to at least copy the info from the band but couldn't. It was wedged in some rocks and the waves were making it move too much.
    Regards, Joe (California)

    Sorry to hear about the sand flea bites,I used to use Avon Skin So Soft oil to keep noseeums away in Belize.
    Good finds though. Vintage ring and car, nice.
    Flip-flops are fine, but barefoot is best!

    that was an interesting hunt Lorraine. A natural remedy - how about Citronella oil (Tea Tree oil is good too)- you rub a little on the palms then all over legs / ankles / feet / those little bities just hate the smell / taste and buzz off - alternatively a few drops into a spray bottle of water and apply liberally - hope the itchies stop soon and see you back on top.

    You (and your partner!) find the most interesting things. Love the G-Man ring. Let us know if you find out what species the band came from.

    The bird-band and the G-man ring are really neat finds Lorraine. Was curious about
    the rings age too, so looked online and found it to be vintage 1930's also. All of the
    Tootsie Toys I have ever found are stamped as such inside, usually by one of the axles.....
    love the toy finds! Gold Nuggets
