The POS earns its name

Having only found broken stuff in the river, I felt like I needed to try again. Indiana, tha duDe, and I all went out to Top Secret. Even though we had just gone there the day before, I still thought I should walk a few places that we have neglected lately. Tha duDe went straight for the pit. I wasn't far behind, though, because there were reasons we have been neglecting those other spots, if you know what I'm saying ;-) We both were digging like fools, but it was just so hot, and we were already tired from diving that morning. After an hour, I was ready to split even though I hadn't found anything yet. I couldn't let myself be beaten like that, though! 3 straight fossil hunts without anything good?? I caught my second wind and continued to dig just a little more. And there it was - a little 3" meg that fit the bill. It was a little beauty, too! The root was there, all the enamel was there, the tip was there, the serrations were there. Cherry! It was still dark from the moisture, but I knew that because of the layer it came out of, it would be awesome when it dried. Tha duDe found a nice little mako, and we were both happy with the final outcome of the day. We dined at Taco Bell in satisfaction.

Great colors on all these, but especially on the inter-vertebral disk.
