    There is an old saying that applies to the most recent finds from my bottle digging site It goes;Never look a gift horse in the mouth . Someone that I have known for quite a long time had expressed interest in my bottle digging hobby He offered to help me out what so he could see what and how I go about it So on a mild day this week we went out to dig. Intact glass /bottles was a rare item this week I found two small bottles .They where an item that at one time i had very many of .However I have given most of them away Near the time we finished digging i did find a couple of soda bottles the where about 1/2 to 3/4 intact . Whilec I dug for bottles he worked on clearing a about a 3 x 5 foot area down to about 3 about deep . From probing the area I thing there is at least 2 to 3 more feet of stuff to remove In the course of his clearing and moving dirt we located some metal items that where of some interest .A piecec of what may have been another small kids bank A part of a door hinge another spike type door hinge a horse bit and a horse shoe and a childs fork So the gift was the help removing a good amount of dirt and the gift was a few horse items I am hoping that removal of dirt will open up an other layer of some older bottles that up to this point I have found pieces of of but just one whole bottle I have found enough evidence that make sme think there is still more to be found .And I hope the effort by my friend may lead to some more gifts yet to come Click image for larger version.

    The last two times out yielded 2 small bottles and some assorted relics Yesterday was about the same One brown Paines Celery Compound I have found another one of them earlier that is in better condition The heat has gone south but at the same time my health issues have more than make up for the improved weather It seemed that I was uncovering some good shards of old glass but I thought that before only to turn out to be not much at all The next time back will tell if I am ready to hit the seemingly good pocket .I spent time clearing out around the spot in hopes that it is a nice pocket of oldies and goodies Several days of rain are predicted which might be a delay in digging but easier digging when it is time to go at it again Click image for larger version.

    On OCT 18 2019 I started digging at the site I having been posting about for the last year I knew going in that it covered a rather large area but I had no way to know how deep it was at that time More than once I moved a pile of dirt I had put one place only to need to move it again in order to get to what had been ground level when I started The heat of this past summer limited me to mostly short digs And it is about a 35 to 45 minute drive from my house so I sometimes spend as much time driving as digging. And with the heat it made my health problems more bothersome to the extent that at times I just did not go Other times the heat would affect me that I would need to avoid the heat for more days before returning I have been blessed with the number of items I located the variety and the age of at least one I do not know how much more is left but I would not be surprised if it is about the same as I have so far recovered And I have found a large amount of broken items that indicate there is more real old items in that dump at some time This is not a wrap up and I am done with it.But fall is coming and that will be followed by frozen ground Hunting season is also part of fall There are two young kids in my extended family that are interested in hunting and I hope to help them in any way I can Add in my health issue which is of a progressive nature and an unexpected situation looming it could mean that my daily lifestyle may be changing Thanks to all that looked at my posts during that year and to those that add their knowledge to many finds This has been the dig of my life time I have added pictures of most of my finds And there have been several items I gave to friends Thanks again MikeAttachment 1871365Attachment 1871366Attachment 1871367Attachment 1871368Click image for larger version.
