    Completely out of the blue, a local newspaper reporter contacted me. This staff writer often writes features on people in the community and feel good pieces.
    She said, “More than once, I have heard of a local little boy who has a knack for arrowheads. I learned he has quite the collection and would like to do a feature on him.”
    The boy, who just turned 7, is Nuther One.
    He absolutely loves this forum.
    He told me to tell the woman, “A billion times yes!”
    She asked for me to compile some numbers (which I admittedly love).
    Here we go…
    78 trips
    165 hours
    268 artifacts

    Life Total = 474

    I welcome any feedback. Be it numbers or share if you have ever seen or been part of such a project.

    Much thanks,

    Please give the reporter general ages of the artifacts. Is amazing how many people still think that stuff is 400 years old and shot by a Comanche.

    It's gonna be a great public interest story. Save a few copies for posterity.

    I agree with Garguy he will love them when he sees them as an adult.

      Thanks. I hope so. I do a fair amount of outdoor writing and have at least a dozen or more published stories that mention my kids. Sure hope they will be treasured most by those I love most.

              So cool to see a young person with the bug. Hope he stays with it. I imagine he's going to have a pretty amazing collection by the time he's an adult. Not that it's not already.
