Timing was on my side today. I was sitting at work and it was about 3:30 when it just started POURING down rain. And it rained sheets for well over an hour. I was salivating. I couldn't wait until 5, because I just knew that that there would be lots of stuff laying around out at the field because a new pond went in about a week ago, and it hadn't rained since. I got off, and I was the first one there! OH MAN! I thought it would already have been crawling with other scavengers like myself, but I guess they were all still en route. I looked over to the old pond, and I saw that they did some work on it, so I decided to go there first. It was a good thing I did because there were teeth everywhere! I couldn't even pick them all up. I went over the new part quickly, then I headed off toward the new pond. There were nice teeth there, too, but it was a small pond and there really weren't any killers just laying out. I only had 30 minutes to hunt, though, so I had to jet. On the way back to my truck, I ran into this new guy out there, though, and he found a SWEET angy. 3" long and perfect. A total drooler. He was walking over the field where they dumped the dirt from the pond, but the construction company had already covered over the field with fossil-less dirt. Why? Because the workers were looking for teeth instead of working, so rather than just practice some managerial skills, they covered the field up. This was done by order of the same lummox who threw us out a month or two ago. Man, that guy really sucks as a person. It’s a wonder that his employees can stomach working for such a doofus. Oh well, the world is full of people like him. Its just a shame that he was ever given any authority at all. Regardless, I found lots of good stuff. Just scope the photo! Tons of teeth, a killer whale ear, and a partial crocodile tooth. And I didn't even get a chance to finish walking around the big pond. Maybe tomorrow at lunch I'll sneak in to take a look around.
