    Finally - Here she is!!!

    Hold on to your nose-hair trimmers, gents! The day I thought would never come came today!!!

    I got out to a spot the other day with Watercolor and Skates. I ran into BillT - good to see you, Bill! That's where I got the buff and two Indians.

    Today, BillT, Skates, & I hit another spot where we ran into Kermit and got to see him dig his Barber and the ring. Nice!

    Nothing was happening there for me except the trombone mouthpiece, so I moved on to a different area altogether and swung over a deep target. Out popped that skeleton key, a cool find in my book.

    I kept swinging in the same area and got another deepie under a branch, so I moved the branch and dug - and there she was!

    Love them keys!
    Only ever found a dozen or so of them and few in that fine condition!

    That mouthpiece looks like it was blown on just yesterday! Great shape! Last couple I got had lawn mower scars and most have been flattened.

    Oh, you got a shiny dime too!
