Back when I was a kid, we played marbles 3 ways.
"Ring"...where we drew a ring in the dirt or chalked one on a sidewalk...each player anted up to the middle of the ring, and we took turns shooting from outside the ring - keeping whose ever marble we knocked out.
"Chase"...you didn't even wanna...

The oldest bottle in my collection is actually a reportedly ancient demijohn. (did you know demijohn is taken from Persian?)
I bought this maybe 15 or more years ago from a local collector. He told me at the time it was Persian and a rope or leather strap went below the collar so it could be...
I went fishing this morning but after a short time I ran out of worms. Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth. Frogs are good bass bait.
Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket...

ever since I began roaming the mountains and hollows of Washington County Va looking for "abandoned" cemeteries ,I seem to fall over a fossil or more everytime I turn around. It's too bad I'm not falling over bottles, but heck - I take what I can get.
I've located 2 fossil beds in the valley...
anyone collect (accumulate) these? I've picked up 3 over the years. All have wood-burned lettering.
1st is a souvenir ( actually they're probably all souvenirs).
MOONSHINE-Cherokee NC 2"
Full O' Corn-Mammoth Cave. KY 3"
3rd (I like this one best)
Old Rye - Meadowview, VA. 4 3/4"
found this while taking pix in an old cemetery. There were some sections of wrought iron fencing scatered about so I guess this was attached to the gate...which was totally gone. I spotted it in a muddy area. A few more rains and cattle strolling through and it would have been buried.
Anyone familiar with this bottle? It has characteristics of a wine: push up base, barely discernible pontil, correct shape, laid on tooled ring...but it's clear and very thin - not at all heavy like most wines. Thoughts anyone?
