Pieces From My Past
One of my favorite things to do when I was younger was to search the field behind my grandmother's house in rural Monon, Indiana for arrowheads - it was great quiet time for me - to just think, dream or imagine - I loved it. And during the process I would actually find some interesting things.
As you can see I found a few arrowheads, a marble of some sort (actually the round marble like thing is a musket ball), and the disk like thing I found at Battleground Creek I like to think is a button off of a uniform or a coin...but it is probably nothing.
I still have my little collections (though I really can't say that I ever stopped - just recently found two snail shells while taking Lola for a walk through woods and had to take them home with me) - I have a jar full of fossils, a jar full of pretty blue stones from a beach, and a great amount seashells of course.
Recently dug my arrowhead collection out when they came up in conversation at work - and when I had some time over Easter weekend to walk the same field I found most of these in.
