Another year went by and the Puce Eagle is still in my possession. I need money like everyone else but not enough to sell it. It feels good to still hold that thing after 6 years. I took it out for some spring time pictures.Again,every picture has a different puce tone to it. I needed a new background for my site it is a nice sunny April day and I have OFF!! [:D]

It also feels good to have it when you are not digging crap lately [8D]

You should rebury it in your yard and dig it up every spring and do a reinactment of how you acted when you first dug it up.[8D]

Rick,

I too never tire when seeing new pictures of that flask even though you let me "fondle" it when I visited last year. What did that one Norm had last year go for at auction?

See this shot here,that thick dark striation down the center is what makes this one different.Light on the sides dark down the middle. The one that Heckler sold was real dark and uniform.

We know what this bottle means to you Ricky, ..well, some of us.. at least a few of us.. maybe.. anyway it's a physical incarnation of your 'raison d'etre' ..it justifies all the digging you do in your life, all the digs that didn't give up squat, all the dirt moved just to find someone's snapple.. it's proof that you really never know what will be in a pit..!

The top right of the post in question has "reply" and "quote". Quote includes the text, reply doesn't.

I see I was typing as you were posting. If you could though, please don't change the titles in the future. It tends to confuse things a lot.

Talk about hitting the nail onna head!! You couldnt of said it better!! the puce Eagle is the epitome of all that for Rick, and I feel that all real collectors have a bottle that means the same things to them. I know that I do, but it isnt as pretty or as valuable as the puce Eagle...........[:)]

This should be the "preamble" for all diggers [8D] I know it made me feel better today cuz we couldn't dig a "keeper" to save our souls. [:D]
