After much probing, I believe I'm on the main part of this dump. These cleaned up fairly well. Have some projects around the house that need done after lunch and a cool down. I'm going to try and go back out this evening. Back at work tomorrow night.

and a mystery liquor of some type.
Not a seam to be found. Has rings so turnmold?
Affirmative on it being turn-molded. I have one that might be its twin if the dimensions match: 8 1/4" tall by 3 3/4" diameter with a slight kick-up in the base.

I suppose that the kick-up could indicate wine as the original contents, though I lean toward brandy--I also lean after brandy sometimes.:p

Only a few more. All found today but 2 were laying on the bank. Very rough going too. No trees in this stretch, just thick vines on the bank.

Had about an hour before sunset today and found another dump. This one has more from the 30's and 40's, but I did find a mystery cork top. Only marking is L 1356 S on the bottom.
Moroline embossed, amber MeRck, small milk glass and the largest milk glass I've found.
Threw in a shot of my hunting waters. Would have had a nice cottonmouth pic, but I was to slow with the phone and he didn't hang around long.

Only sporadic finds the last few days with most broken.
A nice aqua cork top Cardui, Swanson's Five Drop Rheumatism, several Lyric stopper tops, Bireley's embossed milk from Memphis.
A syrup jug???
Also found a broken, but different Tip Top Bottling Works from Blytheville.

I'm from Louisiana, we have the water moccasin, cottonmouth, stumptail, or whatever other nicknames they have around here, but they aren't as docile as you think!! They will absolutely come at you during breeding season!! They're freaking mean!! And around here, if you saw one that was 3 feet long, then it would be as big around as a whiskey bottle! Even a 10 inch one we ran over in driveway, looked like a link of boudin! If you're not familiar with boudin, it's a must try! Delicious! If not, then I'll make the comparison to a link of sausage! Which is where the nickname "stump tail" originated I'm sure

Took two of the grandsons with me and this was our haul.
Re Umberto olive oil
A cork top Van Vleet Mansfield Drug Co, packer, and couple of Dr Peppers.
They also picked up close to 20 golf balls.

Had a little time to wade around this afternoon.

A Haze Atlas Mason I'll put back to use plus a newer Kerr quart.
Not much, but the weather has been wonderful.
