Tried something different today. Hit an old gravel bar outside Edmonton, downstream from an old town. Finds were few, however, enough to keep me occupied. Dug up an old lipstick tube, and I could ID it with some writing on it. It dated back to the 1950's......and Lucille Ball, the star from the old "I LOVE LUCY" show was used in a magazine to promote this lipstick.

Here is the ad. Too funny!

And....the large piece of petrified wood, was sitting in the river, just waiting to be picked up. I gave it a quick wet manual sand wash, to remove some of the ground deposits. It cleaned up nicely!
