  • Lesson for the day... For any day really...

    This evening the wife and i took our two daughters to a local farm market here in jackson co. Indiana, they have a petting zoo, putt-putt golf, a restaurant etc, nice place!, , one of the local farmers learning and adapting to an ever changing economy....doing what he has to do to keep the wolves away from the door, i can support that,!... upon arrival we discovered a mining operation set up and running ,right square in the middle of the putt-putt golf course, just behind the roosters and the pheasants in the petting zoo area....and threatening to overtake the unknowing inhabitants of the koi pond...this, i must investigate!....i do my best meandering over toward the area while my wife and daughters go inside to investigate what goodies the market itsself has to offer, i soon discover its a gem mine, right here in indiana, who knew?....i also discovered that it was a different kind of mining operation that i had ever seen in the books or wherever,see this particular mine, why you had to go inside and buy a bag of paydirt they called it, then bring it back outside to the actual mine location and basically pan the gems out of your bag of dirt,like they used to pan for gold back in the day, only in a trough full of running water as opposed to the running creek water,....well ide rekon they had more then precious gems packed in that little ten dollar bag of dirt, just looky here at the superise i was about to get before i realized the reality of the situation, they say your never to old to learn and try to learn at least one thing a day, ....i present to you for all your viewing pleasure my daily dose of knowledge....... manufactured , or "fake" arrowheads.....πŸ˜‰

      I really don't like to be lied to. I would report them to the police. I bought some of those "India" points for a nickel each just to study the fakes.
