Fossil find

Colorado has seen unprecedented amounts of rainfall so far this summer.

Which means most Colorado residents are seeing unprecedented numbers of weeds in our yards.

Jim spent several hours pulling weeds in the front yard on Saturday. The yard looked better and better as he pulled and pulled, but it sure seemed a not-so-fun waste of time.

Until he found this...


Yes sirreee, that is a fossil. Found right in the front yard, hidden beneath some weeds.

Pretty darn cool, we both thought.

And far more interesting (albeit less confounding) than the toilet—yes, a full Kohler toilet—Jim found while digging out unwanted junipers from the back yard when we first moved into our house nearly eight years ago.

Sure wish I'd gotten a photo of that find.

Today's question:

What's the most interesting thing you've dug up from your yard?
