This morning I was moving some of my fossil crab concretions around and tryin to orginize a bit and ran into this Beauty!   It had collected a bunch of dust.  I had to wash it off even!  Now, finally, its in the house.  Just wish these pics could do the color on this thing some justice, but im not good at photography. Its got some wonderful purples that you can not see.   My son found this many years ago and it took me many hours of prep with lots and lots of sanding and then a coating of some kind of 2 part system, but it came out purty good.

Thanks a ton guys for all the compliments. 

 

Ludwigia and Ynot, i have a lot of stuff in several buildings and cant keep track of it all.  Back in my younger days, I was a very very very prolific fossil hunter, trader, buyer and whatever else you can      add to that.

 

aerogrower:   You can now see that I need a bigger cube?!  Ha!   Just givin you the business.  :)

Wow!  That's great prep work.  You don't see those much around anymore.  What else is collecting dust back there?  Did Spielberg film the last scene in "Raiders" in one of your buildings?

Im only going to be prepping fossils for maybe 10 more years?  Hands get a bit stiff nowadays, back gets to hurtin and am now getting neck aches.  Seems like the body cant do what it use to do.   but I wonder myself what my kids will run into once im gone?  Im sure they will have some good surprizes.

Ron, you are a master craftsman. I'm not even going to entertain such thoughts of when you're gone. But, when that sad day comes, you'll have left your kids with so much of your fine work and passion. :)
