    It looks like a militant band of I Love Lucy impersonators.

    I am not a sailor. However while fishing off the Washington State coast we were caught in a very bad storm. It was a terrible experience in that storm. To add to my fear was a large whale. The Big Sardine was about 100 yds from or boat. Gees! a storm and a whale? All I could think of was the novel "Moby Dick",.:eek:

    It was a moonshine still. I think the revenuers broke them up and those were mash jars.

    I also found whiskey size jug and mason jars. The burn bricks from setting up their still fire and a couple home made iron lantern hangers you could nail in the trees. About the only thing I didn't find was the whiskey and the copper worm.

    You can see here the size of the "dig" site by the time I was digging and sifting through the top foot of soil to find "the next little piece" to keep working up from the floor putting them together.

    There is a constant flow of water in the bottom of that little ditch to the right of the dog. Thats Marley my dig partner.

    This area was surrounded by a large orchard back at the turn of the century, the same time period those mash jars were made in Evansville.

    You are more than welcome.

    Ya know how old guys get. They have one or two stories "in the can" and we just like telling them over and over. I have to hunt new people who haven't heard them already.

    This family was mighty lucky.

    On January 21st, an enormous rock narrowly missed a 300 year old Italian farm house. It destroyed a barn, and stopped in a vineyard at the property in Ronchi di Termeno. A second boulder stopped just feet (about a meter) behind the traditional stone farmhouse in the rocky region of Alto-Adige.

    The family living there was unharmed in the incident.
