Gardening Family Finds "Time" Capsule

MANTON, Mich. - It wasn't buried treasure, but a boy working in his grandmother's garden pulled from the ground a wooden box that contained a Chrysler emblem, a tealight candle and newspapers from 1952, among other items.
 
Cole Ordway, 13, discovered the box on Memorial Day at the home of his grandmother, Betty Dowell. Cole's mother, his 17-year-old sister and a neighbor also were on hand for the discovery.

The rest of the story is here...

I thought this was neater than grits. Maybe Jim and I need to bury something here for someone to find one day...

I would build a rock garden if we could find some rocks!  ;)

I really do think the time capsule thingie is an interesting idea. Maybe Jim could even put some of my ashes in it when I die, after spreading the rest around our land.... ;)

The house that sat on my lot before this one burned down. I find stuff almost every day. :SlapSelf:
