Sombody's treasure
« on: August 23, 2008, 05:36:24 PM »
Hello, wanted to share a find in my own back yard.
A few weeks ago we were starting a new garden,here in Florida. The tiller hit some glass and I heard the shattering. When I checked it out there were four old mason jars, the lids almost rusted away. I of course got excited and took them all in the garage and stated to look at them. They all had long cloth covered packages in them. These packets were not heavy so I knew not jewels or coins. WHAT. So I got everybody from the house and I started to unravel the first one. Under the cloth was a golden foil like wrapping,then more then some lace like materail. Well inside this was the carcase of what looked to be a small canary or parakeet.YUK Not the treasure we all were hoping for. The lady who had passed away had allot of birds the neighbors have me. So now when I find something we still check you never know.
Yes I did and have given all 19 birds that we have found reburial.
