I needed to go dig family’s orders. So I went to to the Fort dug a couple of holes there is so so much in the dirt, white shells, glass, broken plates, oyster shells black dirt and ashy dirt, solid brakes and iron everywhere we call that gumbo. Its a place where you get everything signal and you just start removing everything that’s giving up high and low and everything in between until there are no more signals there that’s when you can get lucky in the gumbo

You’d be surprised how the war nickel shined like a diamond in the black black black soil it came out of

I like finding war nickels, because they're like the weird 2nd cousin that shows up once in a while at family reunions.
