Hey that rhymes[:D]

I work up at 4:30 am and headed on down to the Badgers house and then to Beth bottle show,. Its the first time I was trying to sell bottles rather then dig them. I guess there is a first for everything.[:D] I still like to go for the "Social event" the bottles are just an extra. I wise man once told me that [;)]

Any way I took a few pix and saw a lot of ABN members. Here is who we ran into.

Jarhunter
Wedig4u
Wheela23
NYDigger
Lil Digger
Slagpile Digger
Rando..better known as Rambo
Buzzcut
Thee elusive "Gunther Hess" also known as Mr Medicine
Soda&Beers

I know we missed some ------


Enjoy the Pix.
View at your own risk [:D]

So, I'm pleasantly scrolling through this outstanding Bethlehem Bottle Show & Tell by Rick. Great job on the reporting and documentation, Rick!

Then came:


...it's made with Real Basset Hound!!

Spit coffee @ screen, over here, before even seeing the altered PE.

Rick, what are your thoughts on the percentage of bottle folk with facial hair, against the population at large?

Very entertaining thread, gentlemen, thanks.

OMG! There he is, the most infamous bottle tumbler in America! The lying shame of the Baltimore bottle club. Broke one of the finest bottles dug on the East Coast I am told. Shame he is associated with THE BEST bottle show/club in America. Have personally met him a few times, wouldn't let him park my car. Might crack it...Another POS in the bottle world. BEWARE!!! For factual info, his name is Rick Lease aka Rick Sleaze. Just my opinion and not that of this forum. Disclaimer posted.

OMG! There he is, the most infamous bottle tumbler in America! The lying shame of the Baltimore bottle club. Broke one of the finest bottles dug on the East Coast I am told. Shame he is associated with THE BEST bottle show/club in America. Have personally met him a few times, wouldn't let him park my car. Might crack it...Another POS in the bottle world. BEWARE!!! For factual info, his name is Rick Lease aka Rick Sleaze. Just my opinion and not that of this forum. Disclaimer posted.

PD




LOL

If I wasn't such a up standing bottle collector/digger/human being Id crack his face like he cracked my bottle. Because I really really really dislike that dude. I can't stand looking at him. He oozes snake, rip off,creep,bad excuse for a human.

see what you did Tom lol


Actually I was taking a picture of the old guys table and noticed he was in the pic when i took it off the camera. Ruined the whole picture
