The corn field TIK took me to where there are lots of AmerIndian burials. He said in this field they found graves that are paleolithic and the bodies were encased in clay sarcophagi which is unheard of in this part of the country but they did it to preserve them from floods in this alluvial field by the Susquehanna river.

TIK walking towards the Knouse burial site where when PPL was putting in the concrete bases for the huge power lines from the nuclear power plan they found burials and they wanted to hide them but He stopped them for two years whilst JC as an archeology student helped dig them up. Now most of the burial remains are in the state museum in Harrisburg PA. This is also the site where Dr Santee and Lady Phoebe and the whole town watched and where she told them to dig at a certain spot and they would find a female with beads and they did and she was right on.

Bear claw marks in the maple behind my house where i surprised a 400+ pound bear and it fled up the tree and i walked within touching distance unaware he was up there because i was looking around with the flashlight 360 and down into the stream. After i walked maybe 10 feet away i saw him, screamed and ran to my neighbors LOL.

A lovely old heavy concrete statue we have named Hyacinthe after the flower she is holding which is actually a fountain i have to hook up. I spotted this in front of a house in town and the lady was going to just give it to me but her i wanted to give her at lease $5 which was all i had on me but her husband wanted $10 so i took her home and told him i would bring the other $5 and sold something and gave it to him later that night, me being a man of my word, he being a greedy sob.

This tree at the nearby cemetery looks to me like a face of some being trying to rise from the grave.

Does a bear shit in the woods? Yes, and here’s proof. BTW they are constipated when they come out of hibernation and eat skunk cabbage as a laxative so the first poops are hard. I showed this to my neighbor and he said “Well if it is still warm then slowly walk away” LOL
