    A#1, you are falling prey to the age-old psychological trap of "separating fact from fiction".

    You are finding tid-bit 'facts' in your story. Eg.: names, dates, and events. So there's some sort of conlusion that follows in your mind. Ie.: "treasure". Right ? And if that's ever-to-be-in-doubt, you go back to the parts of the story are true, and your mind focuses on them.

    But wait: If 99% of the story is true (names, dates, and events). And 1 % isn't true (that there, is of necessity, "a treasure", then: What good does it do you that the other 99% of the story is true ?

    And that sir, is 100% fact

    I have too much time on my hands to drink coffee, watch it snow and have fun daydreaming about that 1% of "what if" when I finally get to go play.

    Interesting story, A#1. I give it long odds for a ring on a finger bone. Good luck to you.


    Lying is now the norm. The truth is not only unwelcome, it is offensive.

    Sounds like you have a site known for money, guns, and drinking. Sounds like a good combo to find something!
