and PO sealions...


Who is the cause of that?

I've been lost in the woods....


That's easily done, especially if youi are on a blood trail, not paying attention to your surroundings. Been there, done that.

It's easy for a trail or road to disappear into the brush when it's only 30 feet away.

Are they accustomed to people or do they have to waddle off into the surf to get as far away from humans. I remember them being "at home" laying on boats moored in the harbor off the sanFransico fishermans warf. Looks like thay had to be poked in the butt to make them move of the boats :o

They belonged to his dad or grandfather. The family owns alot of property on my road. His brother actually came over to his house early in the morning and bought all the flint points. He also had a few mortise and pestles?(grinding stones) and another smaller celt that i passed on. All were $5ea.

All very nice items to have in a display with info on where they had been found and by whom. Let the local Historical Society of your county know of them existing. Always good to know where a village was located. The celts were used for farming, cultivating etc.

I would have purchased all items :D
