Title: Can You Dig It?
We were working south of Market Street on Rincon Hill.
“Some people work from the elbows out and some people work from the neck up.” Colson smiled and handed each of us a shovel.
“What a Dickwad,” I thought to myself.
We had dug about ten feet of the ditch when I turned over a shovel-full of broken pottery. A small glass bottle was on top of the pile.
Ray said, “I’ll bet this is from the ’06 quake. A lot of survivors camped here.”
“Do you want it?” I asked.
“Nah, finders’ keepers. It is all yours, buddy.”
